So i collected my baby yesterday and what a AWESOME scoot Just a tad higher seat height than my 300 XC-W but will get used to it.Definitely a false neutral between 5th and 6th but only if you to lazy on the shifter. Now the mods will begin.

Enjoy!  Safe and Happy miles!


Just out of curiosity, what made you choose the KTM over the Husky?

If you are interested, I am selling my 690 and have a Scotts damper plus brackets like this (http://www.scottsonline.com/Stabilizer_Purchase.php?Make=Ktm&Model=&Bike_ID=6795&Year=2014&Size=690&Add_On=%20Enduro) approx 2 years old that I want to sell.  R6000 plus postage.

I also have a safari tank for the 690, black with all fixing hardware.  Bought it but never got to install it, R6500 plus postage.

most important upgrade would be the airfilter with loads of grease for a nice tight seal

Tilt switch, I think?

It cuts the engine when the bike falls over a certain amount of degrees, as a F.I. engine would rev even upside down, unlike a carb model.

Hi Amsterdam
Can you still push your forks through the triple clamps with that scotts damper set up.
I'm interested in a damper but I have lowered my bike slightly and I'm not sure if the damper would fit.
Cheers

ThumperDumper - The damper and bracket do not affect the movement of the forks through the triple clamps at all.  The damper will still fit.

Lekker design, they tend to crack where the bend is over time, alu also tends to bend with heavy loads, have a look some guys make them double layer, something like this, looks strong

Ktm folding mirrors is a huge improvement over the stock units and the touring screen takes allot of pressure off the chest and cruising 120+ is just awesome now. Worth every cent.
