Any more affordable alternatives worth looking at?

You're in Pretoria, and Stealth Exhausts are in Montana.
For ~R3.3K (or was it 3.5?) they make you a superb pipe in a morning - stainless, carbon tip, very good looking and their welding seams are something to be envied.
They did this for me, the bike goes like the clapper with it and I'm deadhappy with them  :thumleft:

Just remember, the Akrapovic pipe is a kit which includes the slip on, modified lid for the standard airbox (more open) and the performance fuel map.

Didn't realize this.... thought it was just the slip...... lekka thanks for this....... lets see what the dealers say!

Those Rade tanks are gorgeous, but come with a price tag attached ;-)

The rade tank is a must have for me. Stock range is about 230-250km, which is just too small range. I had the akra kit and rade tank worked into the deal at Bikers warehouse with no issues. You do lose out by paying interest on all items, but I plan to pay the bike off quicker anyway. I just could not see myself spending R20k cash for those extras.

I agree, the Rade Garage auxiliary tank (which comes with foam filter also) is a no-brainer: more range, more power and yeah, also more noise, and the best thing is you do not change the actual bike by adding width or bulky extras, in fact you'll only see the tankcap - so all good!  ;D

I'll be heading to Bikers Warehouse this weekend to see what is workable on a '18 701, inclusive of  Akra and Rade tank. Will give feedback here.

Will do the same with RAD on a '18 690 for a Apples with Apples comparison.

Thanks all for the input. Much appreciated!!!!

Good luck! Speak to Shane at Bikers Warehouse  :thumleft:

As a note, I think the last  model ktm 690 was 2016? They have not launched the new 690 with the duke engine that is currently fitted in the 701. The duke motor in the 701 does not have the rocker arms issues as the old 690 had, as a different counterbalance shaft was fitted. Apparently less vibrations on the 701 than the 690. KTM is launching a new 690 next year, which will have the same motor in as the current 2018 Husky 701. These are rumors though. Anyone can correct me if I am wrong though.

I agree. I have had no issues with the tank at all. Easy installation and great versatility while keeping the slim lines of the bike. :thumleft:

Also, great service from Flying brick, they are the importers of the Rade tanks. Shane arranged directly with them.

Confirmed with KTM that there are 2018 690s on the way in, due to be on the shop-floor in the next few weeks. These will have the new motors with the counterbalance shaft. So same motor as the 701...... however, price jumps up quite a but aswell...........

I hear these rumours occasionally but have not seen anything official.  If you look on the KTM websites there are no 690s listed anywhere with that new motor in.  And if they would be on the way here then surely they would already be available in Europe?  My understanding was that these motors don't fit in the current 690 frame, hence the different frame on the 701.  So this would be a very different 690.  We'll wait and see.

This came off of the KTM website:
https://www.ktm.com/travel/690-enduro-r/engine-exhaust
Is this referencing the new motor or the current one?

This is not correct, the 10K plus price is for the slipon only, the rest is part of the evo kit which costs more on top of the slipon.

If you are going to fit the RAD tank you will throw the whole airbox and your new evo kit away and use the one the RAD tank is supplied with.

The new 690 will be a 701 with an orange frame, they will not reinvent the wheel.

The quote for a new '18 690 i received was almost 140k

That's ludicrously costly: then better buy the 701 Enduro, cheaper and better suspension with 25mm more travel!
Way better looking too but that may be taste only  ;)

Later Edit:
The Husky 701 comes with a 24 month warranty.
This could well be very different than the KTM 690 ? ? ?

Service intervals on the 690 are also 10000. Have been since 2012 I think although I do an oil service every 5000. My 690 also had 24 month warrantee. My local dealer (well service manager who rides a 690) also mentioned the new 690 but said nothing is changing except the price
