    Screw that dealer. I just got a set from Pro Griffin at Maroochydore for $100. But I did also just buy a 990 from them, so maybe the two are linked....

    Call 'em and see.

    Go to a different KTM Dealer and don't ask for a kit. (Talk to the boys at dalby moto) My front guard is off the 65, and the fork protectors are off something else. From what I have seen on the many mods, the lower fork leg protector screwholes don't line up correctly but it's easily worked out. I got the wire blake line keepers and the project may have cost about $150-$180.

    I think I googled something like 'ktm part numbers high lift guard' and had a list to start with.:deal

    Failing that you can get KTM stuff sent to freight forwarders in the states. It won't save you much ATM coz the USD is up the shit.

    Or PM me and I'll round up the part numbers next time I am in the shed.

    Nope, Just paid $21,800 for a 2012 990ADV in White( same as above Woo Hoo)

    But did see Mr Dalby Moto do the same as Mr Alberta for the 990 High Card kit using the original Fender...

    High fender mod ... done

    People have made brackets for the fork guards to mount them but all I needed to do was use a heat gun and bend the plastic around a bit to get the outer two bolts to line up then drill a hole to bolt in the center bolt

    I bought all the high fender parts (as described on the HOW link) in ORANGE for my '10 990-Adv. I had intended to install the mod before my Prudhoe Bay trip in June, but didn't end up doing it. I've had the parts listed on ADVrider Flea Market for several months, but no bites. Please search for it if you're interested.

    (Apologies to the admin folks if I've broken a rule with this post... trying hard not to).

    There is another option beside 690 fender.

    Its made by Polisport.
    see: http://www.polisport.com/motorbikes/produtos.php?ID=554

    cheaper, stronger and slightly smaller (in my opinion) and has a groove to direct air to the rad.

    I have used it on my bike for over a year and lots of highway and dirt miles, no problem what so ever. I didn't noticed any difference in highway compared with stock fender. I ordered it through my local bike shop.

    Followed the HOW method and purchased the parts from KTM-Parts.com today. $117 delivered to SoCal.

    Went with the orange fender and black fork protectors.

    Will post the results when I install them next week.

    The how method works great, but pay attention to their part numbers since they're color specific.

    Here's some 990 pics:

    Above, you can see how the home made bracket acts as a large washer for the bolts/holes that don't align. It's just a lil redneck engineering.

    The slot is cut out to allow the bottom to conform to the lower fork leg it's not designed to mate with.

    Well, crap. Yours looks good. That's how I want mine to turn out.

    I ended up just getting the black fork protectors after looking at way too many examples on the interweb.

    Went with the part numbers from the HOW, though some are no longer available or have been superseded with new parts.

    We'll see....

    Cosmetically probably the best thing that I have done to mine, just make it look the way it is supposed to! Next is a Dakar style screen!

    Yeah, I agree. I'd be a liar if I said I did it for mud clearance. Mud where I live is as common as unicorn tears.

    It does look better, and I ordered a rallye screen/headlamp assembly from inmate Rade. Should really finish off my bike nicely.

    Bit of an older thread, but did you guys who did the high fender cut the nipples off the top of the fender or do they fit in somewhere?
