What do you gents use in terms of radiator braces?
I.e To protect in the event of a fall and where do you get them.

KTM have radiator braces in their power parts catalogue for the 690.
I've fitted them and they appear to be quite sturdy.
Cost about R2k a year ago.

I bought radiator braces (amongst many many other items) online from rallyraid in UK - really fantastic service.
But they didn't fit because of my locally sourced crash bars, so I am still working out what I need to modify so they can fit.
The crash bars I think will protect the radiator well enough

Great thanks guys.
Don't think I want to go with safari tanks. Will add too much weight and cumbersomeness I think. Perhaps, I'll think about this option.

I'll check the Powerparts catalog  :thumleft:

Rory if you end up not needing those braces let me know i might take them off your hands if the price is right.
That is if I find a 690 soonish  :patch:
