R5890 for clutch kit, consumables (including oil service, gasket) and labour

FM, that's more expensive than the clutch on my Hilux 4x4  :o

I agree it's quite shocking that you own a hilux  :o :o

 :imaposer: If it makes you feel better then use it  ;D I'd better take good care on my 690's clutch after hearing that quote.

Maybe chat to GJ on the forum, I know he discovered an aftermarket clutch kit for the 690 from some random supplier. He had to change out one during one of the stages of the Cape Epic last year on one of his work bikes, pretty simple procedure if you don't strip one of the clutch bolts like @WildWood did  ;) ;D

Buff, yeah look it's not cheap but at least KTM's quote on the kit was pretty much exactly the same as the overseas OEM kits plus it's almost HALF of what BMW would charge on a 800GS

It's ok, At least you have a 690 to make up for the Hilux. ;)

I don't think it's so bad since it included the labour and stuff.  That's probably more than the clutch itself?
Obviously still expensive but yeah, it is 35000km of hard riding I guess.

EDIT
I have never used a new gasket and have never had any issues before by reusing them if you're careful enough.

I ordered an EBC kit yesterday of eBay.  Global Shipping (ie courier): R1300.  Should get it in 12 days.  Kit is 7 fibre plates, thus no steels or springs.  690 R that did 3 Amagezas, the West Coast Baja and the Badlands.   Slipping in 5th / 6th at full taps.

Wow that's well priced.

@Dwerg what was the actual clutch kit price on the invoice?

Fitted the kit yesterday.  Maybe hour and a half, as I had to re-use the clutch cover gasket.  Bike is sweet again.

Nope, I used one that gave a Global Shipping Program option.  That is a courier service (in this case by DHL) and bypasses the SA Post Office.

There will be VAT on the purchase as well, so it is actually 15% more than shown.

So a mate of mine 1300km  clutch gone.
We did do lots of constant sand and he is quite new on the bike and sand.
So bike goes in gear but when you let go of the clutch the bike just revs or idles as if in neutral?
Clutch gone? Slave Cylinder issue perhaps causing this or was he just riding on the clutch?

Dunno the 690 but if it's anything like the 701 then the gearing is too high for technical stuff, or way too high!
Yer mate better change, like in fix, that?
Sure, a clutch is a bitofa consumable, but 1300km's is silly.
If he keeps doing this then a Rekluse is for him, but mind, a shorter gearing still will help!

Sounds like a slave cylinder issue to me. Oberon slave for the win apparently. I am contemplating buying a Oberon slave for my 701 as a precaution.

Me too but from whom?
Rottweiler wants more for the shipping than for the items themselves (absolutely true, ridiculous!) so this is no option, and I got no reaction when I queried this with them.... so stuff 'em!

You can order directly from Oberon website. I am thinking of going that route. I have not checked shipping though. This is also an option: https://www.cjdesignsllc.com/
