I still haven't gotten around to doing a sticker kit but I'd love to do it in the Germany sixdays colours

@Dwerg. What kit is that may I ask? It looks like the 450RR tanks on there.

It's the ktm ct oryx kit

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:

Sorry Oryx RS as ordered brand new from KTM Cape Town

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

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!
