    Hi guys,

    I'm 60,000+km into my rtw wanderings and my front brake caliper is toast.

    It's a long story about hitting a concrete slab in west Java (don't ask) followed by 30,000km of elusive rattle, 4,000km of suboptimal front brakes, and 1,000km of holding it all together with tie wire, and I'm finally willing to concede that it's really, really time to replace that front caliper.

    So: anyone US got a second hand front brake caliper to fit a 2012 KTM 690 Enduro R (AU version)? Hook me up!

    If I can get it shipped to California by 10 December, then I can get it brought over to south east Asia and all my problems* will be solved.

    Cheers

    Grace

    *Not all my problems, but the important ones.

    Hi Scott, thanks a million for getting in touch and for such a kind offer. How great are motorcycling people! I've checked the parts fiche, it looks like the caliper itself is the same for 2012 and 2015 models, the differences don't start until you get to the brake hoses. So it looks like I'm in luck! I'll be giving you a call. Awesome awesome awesome.

    Let us know exactly where, and when you'll be in CA. Lots of inmates here to help you and maybe even parade you through the areas.

    Thanks, I will! I'm hoping that I'll be riding through California soon, maybe as soon as next summer, or the one after? For now, I'm still riding south east Asia and just trying to mule in spare parts from the States. (As you can probably imagine, getting hold of spare parts for a 690 Enduro in the boondocks of South East Asia is neither easy or cheap.)

    Definitely hoping to catch up with a few likeminded riders when I do finally get Stateside with the bike - always hoping for a front garden to pitch my tent in, and maybe some of you good people will even share a gpx or two of your favourite trails. Good times await.
