    Hi Guys !

    First of all I want to share that it is surprisingly difficult for me to find aftermarket parts for my ktm, not to mention that second hand parts market is almost dead. I ride KTM 690 SMCR from 2017 and it has slip-on exhaust from Remus. However, everything still seems to be very restricted, heavy and heats badly. Also, I bought recently KN square filter but didnt install it yet. It would be great if someone with more knowledge and experience could help me with few things which I wrote below.

    • is it worth to change stock header ?
    • are any full exhaust systems available for my KTM ? I can only find full exhaust systems from akrapovic for KTM 690/SMC/R between 2008-2013. Whenever I ask google about bike (2017) it returns with nothing. (I had a full titanium in my xr650r and it was one of the best mods)
    • is it air filter box cover worth replacement ? KTM Air Filter Box Cover 690 SMC/Enduro/R 2008-2018
    • what bar mirrors you recommend.
    • what websites are best for buying accesories
    Thank you in advance for help,

    Kind regards,
    Bart
