took this picture of my Flying Brick System luggage, on a KTM, at the AMiD show.

The 'Brick' was designed to be used on it's own, but this customer (shown sitting on theKTM opposite our stand), could not resist adding it to the KTM with it's hard luggage - but I reckon the result looks cool!

Since I'm a BMW boy (sorry  :peepwall:), can you tell me WHICh KTM that is? 690 Rally?

Has your bashplate come off? Mine has twice... Nuts used are useless - fit Nylocks....

Thanks Plot.

My bashplate is still okay, but am going over every single bolt with lock-tight in the one hand. By the nature that we use these bikes for, I'm expecting some bolts to go missing!  ;D

very pretty...  cost?  Does the Omega kit work with the high fender and can you not fit the Carbon bash plate  (i.e. is it integrated)?  Also does the kit affect the turning circle and do you know if it can be used with Scott steering damper?
Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR 690, Pics
Post by: Sic on March 10, 2014, 03:47:00 pm
Cost of the kit is 50K
It doesn't affect the turning circle at all which is truck like anyway! The bash plate is separate so can be changed or fixed if dinged. Not sure about the steering damper - Should fit no problem though.

I took delivery of mine about two weeks ago but only managed to spend some time on it this week.

Hole-lee-sheet, this bikes pulls like a steam train. After coming off a Super Tenere I was afraid Iíd be disappointed with the power drop back to a single but boy oh boy, none of that happening here.
It pulls from 0 Ė 6000rpm without so much as a hesitation and Iím sure itíll run to redline the same way. Itís all a little addictive, no wonder they say this thing turns you into a hooligan  >:D It hasnít seen dirt yet and Iím already popping wheelies over every speed-bump I can find in the neighbourhood  :ricky:

They mapped it for the Akro pipe and added the Evo1 airbox lid.

Would love to have one like that, but would have to sell my 990 and am not sure I want to do that.  :-\

Lekker Fester, that used to be my mate's bike. Did two Amageza's and a Botswana Desert race - but always very well looked after. You got a good one, enjoy it!!

No Dwerg, the Oryx kit was a mix between the mecca tanks and a fugly 990 headlight.

You have a much more expensive kit on that bike.  :thumleft:

I posted this in Xt660 section, but I guess it belong here:

Here are few pictures from today's first bonding ride. It will definitely need a bit of work to get it where Dwerg's is. The suspension is nothing to brag about - harsh, deflecting and not confidence inspiring at all. I believe the springs are just too weak - don't get why they target standard for riders of 75-80kg. Well Hilton Hayward will hear from me shortly. There is also quite a bit instability upwards of 130 kmh. I have lowered yesterday the triple clamps by about 0,5 cm as the bike was handling like a chopper, so it may have contributed. Anyway, I will wait for suspension set-up and then see what else I may need to imitate from Dwerg's. bike. And that seat - ouchie. I may have patronised in the past some people complaining about the seat and tell them to toughen the fuck up. I guess I may eat my words on this one.

Oh yeah - those tyres are real practical joke. Why do they even sell it with these 50/50 abominations?

Well at least the sticker kit is starting to grow on me and the bike pulls like a turbine from 5000 rpm up. The pipe should though make it feel a bit less restrained.

Nice one Xpat! I have been eyeing that LVR 690 for the last week on Gumtree... timing just not quite right so congrats on your acquisition. I'm sure the two of you will have a great time! Please keep us informed and share your thoughts as you get to know the nature of the beast better over the coming weeks. I'm in the same position as you, wanting to switch from 800 for similar reasons as your switch from 660. It will be very interesting to hear your first impressions and experiences. Cheers CdP

Title: Re: SHOW OFF YOUR 690, Pics
Post by: Xpat on October 12, 2015, 10:20:38 pm
It comes with the Omega kit as standard - I believe standard seat doesn't fit with the kit. It's not very good though - too soft so the sides do not support your cheeks so to speak. I may look into somebody putting some more foam in or something to make it a bit harder.

I guess we are the luckiest persons on earth to have two of these beauties. The best adventure bikes ever, according to Lyndon Poskitt who uses his 690 to not only ride around the world, but to also participate in rally's on the way.

The link below makes for a really interesting read!
