690 Enduro R seat broken
« on: September 12, 2016, 06:51:52 pm »


Seat is broken in 2 places. Don't know if one can fix this.

Where can I get a better seat without selling a kidney?

Cheers!

Try Derick at Wynland motors in Stellenbosch. He fixed mine by removing the foam and fibreglassing both sides with steel rods on the underside. That's enough to hold my 115kgs without breaking. Think I paid 600

I presume your 690 is out of warrantee?  Mine broke exactly like that and I received a free replacement under warrantee from KTM.  Interesting this is that the seat pan on the replacement one is slightly thicker than on the original one.

I fixed mine by pop-riviting in some alu half round flat bar in place, and then covered in carbon cloth and resin both sides. Think it was much stronger than the original.
But, even though my bike was out of warranty, Trax ktm in Pretoria submitted a goodwill claim to KTM, and they replaced the seat.

So I suggest, first ask at your KTM dealer. ;)

Thanks for the replies, sent a mail to RaceWorx. Will see about KTM replacing it.
