Throttle is very cleverly ignoring this thread... fear of being chased to the garage perhaps  :lol8:

Thanks for all the advice guys and girl.  :biggrin:

Eish in that pic you almost seem to take Throttles bike with yours, judging by where your front wheel is..... Had a quick look at mine, as i don't seem to experience this on my 640 but if it makes you feel any better I've done it on my XR. Mine does only have one spring and has the groove grinded into the mounting bit. However, the angle at what mine stands is borderline embarrassing as it seems to lean more than any other bike I've seen. At least we get to blame the weight of the bike, my brother put his 690 down in front of a fully packed news cafe and has since discovered that his stand is to long and thus can't stand on an incline, needless to say my XR has the same issue.

Not so very clear but see how much more my 640 is leaning compared to the 690

So much better looking than the 690 IMHO  :pot: What the hell were KTM thinking with the 690 as far as tanks go?? If that beast had range I might consider one myself???

Interesting I enjoy riding the 690 but given a choice I much prefer the 640, maybe cause I'm use to it now.
