    Just bought my first 2010 690 Duke and am interested to see how people have modded them. Please post any pics and tips.

    I bought a New hold (2010) over this summer and done very little to it except change the mapping switch.

    There are several positions but three that are available 1,2 3. Two seems to be the less restrictive.

    I would like to do something with the seat, it's to slippery!

    Other thing I would consider is a steering dampener, it seems a little twitchy.

    Also some crash protection, sliders.

    It's a very cool ride!

    Brash bungs will be the first buy as I wrote off my last steed!

    Aftermarket exhaust. (Leo Vince or Akra) Weight savings, aural improvement.
    Shorai Lithium Battery. Weight Savings. Combined with above = ###!!!
    R&G Tail Tidy. Weight Savings & Improved Aesthetics (personal preference)
    KTM Plastic windscreen. Adds just enough wind protection to make long days on the bike more comfortable (preference)
    Scotts steering damper. Added stability on the motorway and dirt roads.
    Renazco Saddle. Comfort & grip.
    Sticky rubber. Transforms the bike

    Great bike! Enjoy as is or gently farkle to suit your personal preferences.

    Tank size has been the only disappointment!
    You just want to keep riding...
