Having been the previous owner of a KTM 990 Adventure, which I had to reluctantly sell due to medicinal purposes, i'd been looking around for a suitable lighter weight replacement. My extensive rersearch lead me to the only reasonable option available due to the demize of the very capable 640 Adventure, namely to build my own....a much more exciting prospect than simply buying an off the self bike. Many have already chosen the KTM 690 as a base on which to add the nessacary essentials to construct the allround adventure bike, and for good reason. Thus I scowered the forsale coloums looking for a suitable 2nd hander with no luck. Fortuneatly a KTM dealer was able to get first dibs on the KTM press bike (the very one i'd been researching in one of our bike mags) and I was able to purchase it for substantially lower than new price. I have now already completed most of the build but would like to pass on to other DIY bikers some ideas of how I turned this: into this: My list of add ons include: Safari tank - 14ltr - mileage range approx 550klm Rally Fairing FMF Exhaust KTM 990 front fender Koubra 1 inch lowering link Zumo 550 GPS & mount Bracket Seat upgrade - essential!! 30mm bar risers Scott oiler KTM 690 Head light protector KTM 690 pannier racks Custom top box mount Pelican panniers & top box KTM 990 indicators Front rim lock Perrelli Scorpian AT rear tire custom dash board including: 12v power adaptor Relocated (Warranty replacement) speedo Relocated Map control dial & housing. I hope this thraed will be of use to anyone contemplating Adventuizing their KTM690. Cheers SPDDY.
