Is there an alternate (local) place to get upgraded tank bolts than Rally Raid? Their prices are a bit steep imo and not having to import will be more convenient
Hi Boland - we now stock and sell the 690 replacement tank bolts, the locally-made ones.

thanks

Guys what top box rack do you use and soft luggage for the 690? If possible can you post pictures on the bike please. Thanks.  
Hi ADVR, we now stock and sell the following rack for soft luggage, and it comes in 3 different configurations:

KTM   690   Pannier Set   Stainless Steel (no carrier)
                         Stainless Steel (with carrier)
                         Stainless Steel - Powder Coated (no carrier)
                         Stainless Steel - Powder Coated (with carrier)
Picture attached is of Stainless Steel, WITH carrier.

Like others, we recommend only light weight on the rear of these bikes, so definitely light-weight, SOFT luggage, and no 'kitchen sink'!
As mentioned here, less is more, with this bike, esp. since it has no sub-frame to speak of.
We do also sell the tank reinforcing bolts, etc.

Cheers
Chris & Team

I had a good look at this rack on Sat at Chris's shop. It's surprisingly light and appears very well put together  :thumleft:

Giant Loop - Mojavi for day trips, Coyote for travelling light and Great Basin if you want to take the kitchen sink

Dust Devil on the forum used to sell GL products, not sure if he still does.

This is my 690 with the Coyote
+1 the Cayote is good for the 690
Something to think about...
When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept your it. All else is madness.

What's all this BS about a 690 not being able to carry a load? The manual says not to exceed 300kg with rider. Just upgrade the tank mounts, add rear racks that secure on the foot pegs and you're good to go  :thumleft:
Sorry for the hijack but that an awesome setup  :thumleft:

Hi there,

We have a locally developed set of soft luggage which we've tried on the 690 and works well.  Sorry the picture I have at the moment was taken in the dark on with our prototype set.  We now have production units available for both pannier sets and tail luggage.  Specifically designed for our Toys2Go 690 pannier racks with integrated carrier but will work generically with most racks.

Please PM me if you'd like more information.  Comes in black and olive.

Chris from Flying Brick stocks our racks in CT.
