    Hi All,

    I just finished the Carbon Fiber Conversion of my KTM 690 Duke, and I'm a little proud of the result, so I thought I'd share a few pics.

    All plastic parts Except for the gas tank) have been exchanged to Carbon Fiber - 15 parts total.

    More details on the mods I did to the KTM here: http://guzzitech.dk/category/ktm-duke-690/

    Enjoy

    Looks nice!
    How much weight did you cut from the overall total on the bike?

    That is very nice! You did a great job. How did your 1000k tour work out?

    Did you weigh all the parts? Was there any weight savings, or is this just for cosmetics? Looks good either way.:freaky

    BEAUTIFUL carbon parts.......my Superduke 990 has mostly carbon too, but I´ve always thought that the 690 headlight assembly in carbon would look nicer in mine, as it does in yours :clap
