Title: 690R Luggage Rack
Post by: Desert Boy on August 28, 2014, 07:46:10 pm
I've had my 2014 690R for a few weeks - fantastic!!!

I am planning a few longer trips for the future and am trying to figure out the best way to pack luggage onto the bike. I normally travel very light and prefer soft luggage.

Is there a local agent or producer for the RR type of luggage rack suitable for the 690? If there is, please post their details.

What other options are available locally?

Hi Guy’s

I bought a set of Theas racks. Not only the BEST service I ever received from the guy’s, but also very well made rack and fits like a glove! I would defiantly recommend them. Big thanks for making a plan that I could have the rack in time for my trip.

I've just fitted the luggage rack as supplied by Flying Brick. Its a superb fit, and exactly what I needed.

Great service from FB (Oliver).

Highly recommended.

I still think the Giant Loop bags are the best for the 690. You can still ride like a hooli and not worry about a rigid hard rack that can be eina if you fall on it. Super light , goes on and off in a minute , strong as hell and looks the business .

I have installed the rack I bought from Flying Brick. It's true, the installation is easy and the rack fits perfectly. I have to commend Flying Brick both for their product and their service!

I have welded a small plate between the vertical rods on the rack to accommodate a Roto Pax bracket. Without an extra fuel tank one has to make provision for extra fuel.

One can remove the Roto Pax bracket from the plate and attach any luggage system

(http://desertboy.smugmug.com/Other/KTM-690/i-KfbmNkB/0/M/DSCN4897a-M.jpg)

My next objective is to have both the Roto Pax and the luggage on simultaneously. This will require a small modification to the luggage however. I'll start working on that next.

We are based in the Jhb/Pta area and can be contacted directly should you want to buy up here.

Of course, if you're in the Cape, please support Chris and his guys.

Hi Hugh,

I've looked at your soft luggage that's designed for the racks you make.

I'd like soft luggage (side panniers) built to work with the 690 rear fuel tank filler (without luggage removal to re-fuel), in black waterproof material. I want something well thought-out, practical, that fits well, and can take the punch. I want a three-day adventure ride solution that fits the Toys2Go racks PERFECTLY. Kind of like the Giant-Loop kit, but custom made for the 690 rack system. Must be black though, and must be waterproof... I want to be able to sleep dry after dropping my bike during a water crossing...

Can we talk about this?

Regards,

Richard

PS: Still as happy as a clam with my Toys2Go racks!! Fantastic quality, excellent value. Like a factory-supplied carrier system on the KTM 690.

Thank you very much, glad you're still happy with your purchase.

Hugh

I like the look of that Toys2Go Pannier rack, but I would like to put a solid luggage rack at the back for the rollie bag. Is it possible to attach a plate on top of it?

yes, it is possible, we are awaiting our next 2 racks this week, so I can only 'illustrate' poorly with our half-demo rack, but yes, it is certainly do-able!

and we have a universal luggage plate for just R350 - but you would likely need to cut it, to reduce its size for the 690 aesthetics...!

Thanks Chris. So if I understand correctly there isn't ready to go plate fitting on top of those racks available? Just to be sure before I start devising my own.

CORRECT - YOU MAKE YOUR own 'plan'; we can supply a ready-made plate that could work well, but its up to you to attach it, etc.

Hi Crow

After a lot of deliberation, I decided that I need a minimum of 350 km of fuel capacity on board before embarking on a trip. For this reason I imported a Rally Raid EVO 2 kit from the UK. This gives me toal capacity of 22 litres; more than enough. Now, in extreme cases I can carry an extra 6 litres in the Rotopax containers. I can also use a Rotopax water container, or 2 water containers. I have many options.

(https://desertboy.smugmug.com/Other/KTM-690/i-xdDq89D/0/L/DSCN5913-L.jpg)

In addition to the RR tanks, I have welded a small plate to the luggage rack so that I can attach my SW Motec tail bag. This is invaluable on short trips to carry puncture repair stuff, etc.
