Pillion pegs. Some Q20/WD40 will sort them out!

Filter cleaned, oiled and back in place this morning early.





Now just waiting for the neighbors to wake up so I can start the pressure washer for the first wash.







Hoping to find an easy out this morning to remove this sucker.

Bolt is out, but now find the slip on looking like this???

Will see if I've got some rivets.







Wasn't too painful though



Clean now in the areas normally hidden and difficult to get to.





A bit of protection to the frame where there was some friction previously.

Setting up for chain and sprocket change.





Sprockets were certainly well used.







And then found the chain too short.



Fortunately had a new chain, although meant for another bike.





And finally standing with a fancy new drive.

Foam protection in all the places where chafing takes place.







Couldn't leave this like it is when fitting the front fender.



A quick blast and a lick of paint later and I'm much happier.





Complete and happy.













All that now remains is minor adjustment on the front fender and fitting the bash plate.

Ready for sale.

Wow,good work!
The protection bits you added to the frame, what did you use for that ?

Just remember that case saver needs to have a guide installed with it. If you do not have one, I recall that it is the one used on a KTM65 chain guide.

Kobus, did you use S/S rivits on the exhaust?  If not replace them soonish.

geno.box, armpump gave you the right material link.  Available from most hardware stores, Midas etc.  There's one that is especially flexible, almost rubbery that I find work better than the general canopy seal strips.

The thread is however a bit outdated guys.  The bike was sold shortly after the last post here.  If there was a guide on the sprocket guard it would've gone back, if not, it probably still looks like in the photo.  No incident to date after many miles with the new owner.  He's got the link to this thread so will let him know.

Rivets was SS if memory serves correct Katana.  :thumleft:

Hi Kobus, I know this is an old thread but I have got a question regarding the fairing an tank which you had on your bike. Is it the Oem KTM rally fairing and nav tower? What tank did you used and were the more fairing parts or only fairing and tank? Cheers Lars

Hi Lars, thatís the Oryx RS kit on the bike.  It comes with the tank and mounting tower.  I bought the bike with it already fitted, but the complete kit was about R55k new I think.  Dwerg on the forum will know more about it than I do.

Iím not sure what your consideration is but a suspension upgrade is a must in my opinion if you go this route.  The 690 is a much nicer bike in OEM form than with a rally kit.
