Anyone tried the 500 EXC LED tail light instead of the XC-W tail light?
I haven't heard anyone talk amount the Coleman ATV seat cover on the 690, so I decided to try it out.
For $20, it's pretty good. You can buy it from Walmart or Amazon.com.I have one on my Versys and I really like it. I've done 8,000miles on that seat cover, including one 800mile day. It probably isn't as good as a $300 seat, but this seat cover should hold me over for a while. I stopped caring about getting an aftermarket seat on the Versys.
As with anything seat related, YMMV !
The seat cover has high-density foam in blocks, with empty channels between them. Supposedly this helps circulate air around your butt. The foam is about 1/4 an inch high. The cover will fade in the sun over time and absorb water when wet. Beside that, it has held up just fine on my Versys.
I had to break the buckles off the straps and just tie the seat cover onto the stock seat. One drawback is that under the seat, the straps go tight across, and I think it won't let me put my iphone under there. I like to charge my phone under the seat. So I need to rethink my charging options.
Oh yeah, don't forget to rip the dorky Coleman tag sewn onto the cover.
I hope this helps someone.
This looks like a good idea.
Could you post a few more pics?
The Corbin is a big improvement, and for long rides I have an Alaska Leather DS sheep skin that made a 1400 mile multi day ride on my stock seat 450EXC doable.
Evo 1 or Evo 2 tanks
So did KTM ever upgrade/improve the fuel pump?
Do the 2012+ models have an updated pump or are they still supplying the original 2008 pump?
You mean the passenger foot peg mounts?
They come with the bike along w/ the plastic passenger footpeg eliminators
I'm also trying to decide but I own the EVO1 tanks. I guess i could sell them
Here's another pic:
There are many different pads out there. The Coleman pad is inexpensive and I've used it on my f800 and Versys, so I went with it. I think it'll be good enough. Try it and see if you like it.
EVO 2 Tanks are on the WAY to Cali !!! !!!
I can't wait !!!
We'll need a blow by blow account of the install along with photos....
If you wait till mine show up to look @ them you are more than welcome.
Ordered a set last week when they became available in black.
I plan on assy a 690 ADV lite bike this winter for the umcoming riding season.
I have everything except my frame mounting system. I have a couple feelers out about parts, but havent seen anything not custom @ this point that didn't have the expensive fairings as part of the package.
I already have a fairing set, which I will modify to work with the EVO2 tanks.
Anybody have some idea's?
This is going to be interesting.
I have a BRAND NEW Frame mounting system with Lights and NO fairing
Looks like this is off to Assfault
I love it when a plan comes together!
So what is the plan?

I'm not sure if the pump is any different. They have changed the pre-filter though according to Profill
"2012 MODEL HUSABERG / KTM HAVE FIXED THE PROBLEM OF THE HOLE, SO THERE IS NO ADVANTAGE OF BUYING THIS FILTER FOR 2012 BIKES"
On a related note.. Sherri Jo has 116,000 km on her original 2008 fuel pump.
One more set of these in stock (two just sold). Mduro takes about 6 weeks to make them. I run a set on my 690, work very well, look good too
