A simple hole in the saddle will fix that for you. See my pics in the radetank thread.
Again, this has been beaten around quite a bit. IMO and many/most others the OEM ratios are fine for most riders. Most would agree that overall gearing down, say one tooth up front, is an improvement for more serious off road. Could the ratios be changed to improve off road performance? Probably yes but it depends where you ride, how much street and individual preferences. Should the tranny ratios keep a guy from buying a 690 for dual sport? Not IMO. YMMV
Just a new to 690 thread question, what are the big or small differences between the 701 and the new 690?
Here's a great idea. Why doesn't KTM just offer the Baja version of the bike they made first! 5 gallon tank and a 3rd mounting point for the front of the tank that's less bound to fail AND WE WOULD ALL HAVE OUR DREAM BIKE!
I'd grab one if I could
Any news regarding delivery dates?
Toss a coin- Advpulse reporting end of Nov for US- I found that doubtful, called 3 dealers- they had no idea either. I say Mid December :)
press launch in January FWIW
Updated US Release- End of Jan/Early Feb- Well that blows..
where did you find that?
The AJP PR7 uses a similar style tank to this, wouldn't it be possible to group together (>30 690 owners) go to Acerbis or ... tank maker and get a 5 gallon tank to be made surely it would cost a fair bit but it's more likely this way than KTM to make it as standard!
So...how does 250mm suspension travel compare to the 275mm of the 701? So sad that KTM owns Husqvarna so we get staggered releases for no reason...
It’s about 25mm shorter
I was just here waiting for that one
What we would have is people complaining that the bike is too tall, too heavy and the air filter is too hard to access and that KTM don't know how to make what people really want.
I tried to get the tank CAD file from KTM to do just that. I couldn't find any Rep in the US that even knew about the bike!
The air filter is foam and right under the seat! It was carbed not fuel injected like the Rally Bikes. It can't be that hard to adapt it to the fuel injected version.
I love this bike.
And people would whinge it didn't have a taco
Perhaps some usefull info here
