Loosen all the bolts some and see if you can get a better fit.
The black fairing sides are for some reason not fitting on anybody's bikes. It seems that they trimmed it too short. I've an EVO 2 and even there the fit is attrocious. Neither will it fit the same way on the 2 sides. The white versions have a much better fit.
I used foam tape to hide the huge gaps.
I am about to leave for a 3 weeks trip and I would like to carry some spare bulbs, just in case.
Has anyone already checked what type of bulbs are in it?
that would be very helpful, instead of having to dismantle again the fairing!
I happen to own both bikes. The 690, new in 2009, goes everywhere I point it flawlessly except for the really rough stuff or four foot rollers in Baja...but that more my fault than the bike. With the Rally raid tanks installed she is a heavy one on the front with full tanks. how those blokes rode her in the Dakar is a mystery to me. After riding a section of the Baja course out of catavena in March I decided the 690 was not the bike for me on this type of ride so I bought a new in the box '08 450 EXC. ( the price was too good not to pass on the carb model). The only tracking issue was easily solved by setting up the suspension correctly to handle off road race speeds instead of a more motocross type suspension setup that comes with the bike out of the box. Now I have both. Now, can someone just ride my other bike until I decide the trail is best for the 690 ..or the 450? Decisions, decisions, decisions. Next Rally set up on that one too, but now 100 pounds lighter.
Anyone have some pictures of the light output of the new Evo-2 fairing lights?
We have just recieved delivery of our new EVO 2 Adventure Graphics to fit the new Adventure Fairing Kit.These look great and compliment the original plastics,and we will be producing these in orange/black for the older 690 R & E's,and orange/white for the newer 690's.
They are more subtle than the Rallye Graphics,and fit well with the styling of the older & new KTM 690's.
Thanks to Jim,Karon & the boys at Zero-Nine Graphics for the slick design.

I have a EVO2 tank kit and a EVO1 adventure fairing kit. I purchased the EVO1 tank and adventure kit back in March of 2011. So my adventure kit has the tubular design. I want to upgrade to a rally kit consisting of a nav tower, fuse box, roadbook mount to hold a f2r roadbook, single ico along with the stock speedometer and a bracket to hold a garmin gps 60CSx. I know most of these are available for purchase through your website except the nav tower and the fusebox. However since my kit has the tubular design I am not sure whether these would fit ? What do I need to do to upgrade to this kit and is there away to upgrade it in the first place ? I have sent a PM to you and also contacted you through your website.
Second question I had was on how to mount the magnet and the sensor for the ICO. I have upgraded to sxf forks and I am using your bracket thats mounts on the top of the fork pinch bolts. So where am I supposed to mount the sensor and the magnet for ICO ? and what parts do I need for this conversion ?
Can you please send a PM with the parts and price information to complete this upgrade ?

Can you give us a more detailed review of the kit?
How's the wind protection?
Does it crash well?
I just finished 1300 miles in New Mexico with my Evo 2 setup...
Wind protection is good...a little buffeting up around the helmet at highway speeds.
Lost one screw on the press-in fitting for the small black trim panels.
Headlight wouldn't adjust high enough because the top of the shell hits the nut inserts on the tower plate...
No crashes, so I can't comment on that issue...
Handling seems un-changed except for soft sand with full fuel load...the extra weight on the front end makes it wallow a lot more at slow speeds.
Overall, I'm pleased with mine.
1.I stand up 75% of the time ,But I like it a lot !
2. it is still on the Bike
3.I have the full rally kit and my old MD roadbook vibs a little.
( Time to buy a new one from RMS today)
Hey Mitch, what's with the no fit for Akro head pipe on the 690? I have the original tanks but want the slimmer fit Evo 2 instead. Will I need to reinstall my stock pipe?
