Hi
Look out for a Higher seat and bar raisers.

or alternatively get bars with a higher bend 

I know Enduro Engineering make higher seats for the enduro and Motox bikes for the long oooo's

I'm not sure if they do one for the 690 

Check out Slavern's racing as they do stock a lot of the Enduro Engineering products, look on there site

good luck

We sock a set of Fastway wider pegs that in the 'low boy' position offer 1cm lower and 1cm rearwards (I ride with them = less knee-bend), but I feel that is insufficient for your needs...

Subscribe, in case anyone knows of any other solutions...

Thanks Chris

Fast ways aren't a plug and play on the 690 per the interwebs - you need to modify things both on the peg and bracket with a dremel :-)

found a 30mm drop option overseas but want to check on local first

my issue is leg bend rather than position when standing so  lower pegs kind o make sense to me -  on my 800 I used fastways and the higher rally seat - overall about 40mm diff to stock - if i can avoid a higher seat on the 690  I want to - its already at 910.

handle bar / bar raisers kind of thing is more or less ok and wont make my knees feel any better

I would JOIN you on an overseas order, and would consider bringing in 3 or so sets for our Store, IF you do indeed bring them in...
they arrive duty FREE, just vat to be paid, and a small admin fee.

Hey guys any news on this topic ?

Gaw could you let me know which site you found these lowered foot pegs on
Or if Chris or anybody stocks them I'm 6ft 5 with out my boots on and really need to make a plan

What's the highest you can raise the handlebars with out making them weak or having to change cables

Has anybody changed there handlebars to a higher curve if so which bars should I look at

I've put on some bar raisers but feel I need just a touch more

Any info would be much appreciated

Gavin and I still have to chat; I guess he'll see this thread and respond...

I sent him a link of lower pegs, will try find it and post it here,I think it's the SAME link he had found!

The highest you can raise handlebars? Varies bike to bike...

Long discussion short; you probably need ROTATIONAL risers, since putting on 'block' raisers DOES raise the bars BUT moves them closer to you, which does not help the cramped cockpit syndrome (ccs; I just made that up!), since if you have long legs, you probably have correspondingly long ARMS, and do not need the bars moving CLOSER to you!

Rotational bars can be rotated FORWARDS, allowing you to re-position the bars above the same axis they were originally placed, sweet!

Cables: the amount varies bike-to-bike, even model year!
We recommend our customers, when fitting bar-raisers, run the bike in neutral, and check clutch action, etc on FULL rotation of bars, and check for impingement.

If impingement, three options; freeing the cable(s) from their captive loops (easy), or re-routing the cables for a smoother run (trickier, but doable), or making up longer cables (cost + time).

You sure sound like a candidate for taller raisers; gurus like Jan Staal is against them, but simple logic says the 690 won't easily fit both a5"7inch "jockey", IN ADDITION TO YOU at 6"5inches, 10 inches different...

Their is a NEW, clever rotational riser on the market, which we just happen to stock, which is MULTI-ADJUSTABLE, meaning you can adjust for height ANDforward/aft rake, giving infinite positions...

Final thought, although rotational risers in their HIGHEST position are usually 50-55mm, which is a lot higher than 30mm 'block' risers, when they are rotated forward, they further free up the cable slack, and they reduce in height as you rotate them, since their effective height 'diminishes' from the vertical plane.

Whew, hope that helps!

I have a set of lower legs on my 690 which came with the bike. They're were apparently custom made here in SA. My advice would be to say if you plan on doing technical riding they really do get in the way and hit thing far more than they should but for long distance riding they make a nice difference.

I bought a set of these: http://bikegear.co.za/product/sw-motech-wide-footpeg-kit-ktm-lc-49509901190/ secondhand, they are a bit bigger than original, but offer a standard and lower height setting. 15mm lower than standard.
I really like mine, and wont be able to go back to standard pegs easily. That 15mm is just what I need. I also used to have 20mm risers, but after installing steering damper, that is now replaced by damper mount, which gives me 17mm rise. I think.
My 2c.

Thanks guys for all your input really I meant it I appreciate all the help and advice that I can get and this forum has helped me out plenty

I'm doing a bit of research and I'm definitely looking at lowered foot pegs but 15mm will just not do the trick so a 30mm drop is what I'm after

I've also made my mind up about fitting a steering dampner and the mounting kit from rost off-road will give me a bit more of A lift

After that I hope I will be a bit more comfortable if not I might look at high bend bars

Might have to rob a bank  :pot:

Once again thanks for all your help

At 1.86 meters (6'1") I am neither particularly tall nor too short.  I bought a pair of 30 mm dropped rally pegs from Flying Brick.  Did a 3 day extremely gnarly ride with Wildwood last weekend.  I can tell you that these dropped pegs made a huge difference to my comfort and control.  Normally my legs get so sore after a few days that I struggle to get from seated to standing.  This small drop changed that.  Not only that, it changes your seating position and even my butt survived the 690's seat better.  The only time they snagged on something was when I made a mistake and tumbled bike and all off the side of the mountain.  In fact, love them so much that a 2nd pair is under the Xmas tree for my son's 690.

I fitted a pair of Pivot Pegz in the low position which is only about 15mm lower than standard.
I also added some extensions that I made and must say it makes standing much more comfortable.

nice Job, TD, I have looked at stocking those ROST add-ons; what are your thoughts/impressions on:


ease of fitment?
fit, and finish?
size: too big, or just right?
anything else?


thanks!
