Title: New 690 "R"
Post by: edgy on October 14, 2011, 11:50:08 am
So I collected my new machine on Wednesday :biggrin: I only have a 100kms on her so far! I got her with the new Apex FMF pipe and she sounds awesome! :thumleft:
What are the nessesary "farkles" that should be attended to? What needs to be sorted on these machines?
As far as the power setting goodie under the seat,what must that be set on?
Thanks

I would personally just fit some foldable mirrors and then lots of petrol and tyres and gravel.

Go to Rally Raid UK and order everything they offer for the 690. :ricky: Or at least the subframe/tank bolts.

You going to LOVE it, now get the Kit, that puts the whole picture in Focus!! Setting 3 is themost manageable in all conditions.

I just tested a 690Enduro the Rally/adventure kit from the UK.  :drif: :drif: :drif: :drif: :drif:

REALLY REALLY WANT!!!!

It feels so light especially after the 990. (Don't tell fifie I said she is fat.  :deal: )
I am by no means a good rider, but that bike is so nice to ride. The fuel setting was on the sport setting and the vibration was almost non existent. 

I would have prefered the tanks to be a bit narrower in front, but that is all I can complain about.

As with all KTM's I have ridden. I was immediately comfortable. I took the bike back to KTM CT before I started doing stupid things within 10min. Thanks for the test ride, you evil people.  ;D

again:

REALLY REALLY WANT!!!!
