    Got everything in install was pretty straight forward. I have a 2014 690 and I can't seem to get the air box to seat. None of the screws are lining up. The rubber boot doesn't look even all the way around. Anybody have any tricks for a noob 690er

    Not sure if the oem tank bushings are supposed to have ridges. They are almost octagon shaped around.This is after 2000 miles on my 14 690. Glad I didn't wait any longer to change these out. Perun's tank bolt kit was very nice quality and easy to install.

    Hi, glad installation went ok. :)

    Just apply some grease on rubber boot edges and align it well. It should slide in. Don't use unnecessary force.

    Hi Perun,
    Why do you suggest using the M6 washer?

    This makes the bolt head protrude the bolt hole. It is not flush or below the side plastics.

    Thanks

    I made head of bolt cap as low profile as it can be, so plastic fairing is not sticking out. Because of that, bolt cap is 29 mm high. There is a hole all the way through bolt cap - two threads, one M8 - 20 mm deep and one M6 - 9 mm deep.

    Upper bolts that I provide (zinc coated 10.9 M8x25) are entering into the bolt cap as much as they can - around 15 mm, so that leaves 14 mm for M6 bolt (the one used from outside) to come in bolt cap. OEM bolt is M6x16.

    I recommend using that washer just to ensure there is enough clearance between M8 and M6 bolt (inside the bolt cap) once they are bolted all the way in. It may not be necessary, but its "safer" to use it.

    I hope I managed to explain it. If not, I will draw it. :)

    OK got it.

    On my 2010, the spacing is ok. I manage not to use the supplied washer and the bolt head is snug like OEM for the plastics.

    I thought your answer was good....except: what are you worried would happen? Plastics could be loose?

    Other than that I don't really see a bad reason for the outer bolt (M6x16mm) to touch the inner bolt (M8x25mm).

    I made some improvements to this kit.

    I used to make threaded rod for lower mounting spot. I chose to make threaded rod instead of just buying bolts because:

    1. its hard to find M8x140 (for 2008-2013) or M8x160 (for 2014) bolts in 10.9 or better quality on the market. Ofc, 8.8 bolts would do too, but I like additional strength of 10.9 bolts.
    2. even if I found ones, those bolts are too long, IMO, so they would stick out more then I like. Not that it could do any damage, I just didnt like that.

    I recently had some business with bolt factory, so I asked them to make custom bolts, according to my specs. Here are results:

    Length of the bolts is 137 and 156 mm, quality is 10.9 and they are zinc coated.

    From now on I will provide these bolts instead of threaded rods I used to make. Strength is same, but this is more "elegant" solution.

    Perun moto is essentially one-man-shop. So, when that one man goes to the mountains to ski, shop will be closed. Since its internet shop and I made reasonably sized stock, it wont be literally closed, but I wont be able to ship items from December 27th to January 13th.
    I will be checking e-mails regularly, so if you have any questions - feel free to ask!

    I know you mention on your website that you do make this for the 2015 model, I am curious how necessary this is. You make great product no doubt and I will be ordering the luggage rack. I find it odd that KTM would not resolve this known weakness over this many years.
