This is quite a nice little tool.
Went for a semi lame 100 miles in Central KS.
My kinda riding!
Enough for me today....time for camp when you drop the shim kit on floor
Installed Fastway EVO 4 pegs.
They are brilliant, just the right width and length. And they solve all the problems I had when standing up on the stock ones (bowed out legs, standing on the inside of my feet and the right-side one bent upward about 10 degrees from a crash), plus they are adjustable eight ways to China -- which is where I hope to take them someday. I used the taller cleats down the middle. They send you lots of extras in both sizes.
Hi ThirdUncle, nice timing in your post.
I'm currently looking to get an aftermarket foot pegs, and like the ones from Black Dog (BDCW) but wonder if they aren't too large. The Fastway look fine also. Thank you.
Don't get 'em too wide. Though it feels nice to stand on them, too much width can be dangerous when you crash.
Also, consider which you'd rather have hitting your soft bits -- razor-sharp shark's teeth or dull flat screws -- when the foot traction's about equal on both.
I had Fastways on my 1150 GS Adventure. I liked them fine with the Discovery boots. And they worked fine with the replacement Crossfires. The standard KTM are fine for me now as they have that little bit more width the OEM BMW peds did not.
Finally got the Trail Tech mounted, then I installed some shiny new rear brake pads.
Kind of a lame excuse for a new post but do we really need a good reason to flaunt our cool machines???
Hows the buffeting behind that screen?
Yesterday, I did a shakedown ride in the woods for the new 990ADV shock -- on fast jeep trails, doubletracks and singles, including some hillclimbs with rocks. All I touched all day was rebound -- I ended up turning it all the way in to get beasty to stop lifting her ass end off the woops. Now need to lower the bike a bit...
I'm at the early stages of learning the mysterious art of setting up my own suspenders, instead of using up all the goodwill of @keener, who sent me cheat texts to help out yesterday.
The comfort and performance levels compared to the best tuning we could squeeze out of the OEM shock are off the charts -- even at this early stage of understanding how to set it just right for me and my evil ways. But this much is fact: No more spinal-disk shredding jolts and faster, stress-free hoonage through everything. Unfuckingbelievable.
Also, I did not air down this time, just to try that. It was great through the damp deep sand and babyheads, even with a fully worn-out Desert HT astern. Nice not to have to worry about pinch flats and avoid every pissy little rock in my way.
This bike is nearing perfection. Next: Fork springs. Then, thinking maybe a 990 engine swap... or a 1290... or a small V8.
Let it loose in Wyoming
Has anybody installed the Factory Pro Transmission Detent Arm Shif Kit on KTM 690 Enduro (I have a 2013 model)? Is it worth it?
Have another question....
In the TuneECU database there are many maps for KTM 690 Enduro. Having changed muffler on my 2013 model, any suggestion for best maps?
Not today but recently did the kickstand relocation
Might get more direct response / input in the 'Thumpers Forum' bud :)
Yes a good thing,better gear changes and not as notchie
So I pick up a used 990 with 98k miles that purrs like a kitten... I’m thinking a few POs must be even more maint annal than me... so, I dive in to check a few things....
Here’s the intake... you could do surgery in here...
Then I need to take the rear shock off cause it’s leaking.... wow, even the bolts have nice lube and no rust or corrosion and the shock looks great...
Thanks to the POs and good wrenching this bike might last even longer..,
Well done, Fuds. Does this mean you're back in the 9X0 fray -- or did you ever leave it?
