I use the airtime bar raisers on all my bike`s. Have had a few lekker crashes aswell and the quality seems good ! Had to remove them when i fitted a damper because the hoses on my 690 seems much shorter then on the plastic bike and the 990,still could fitt raisers and a damper on them,don`t know why that is. Just look that your`e throttle cable,and brake/clutch hose`s are`t to tight! Ktm machanic just told me that if the cable`s ens are to tight il`e damage or fu_k something up !  ;D  But don`t ask me wat it was !  :dontknow:

Ag sorry for the kakkish question but agents who I bought myne from made me put one on and I also sed its mad to pay 7k for a bloody damper !! My 690 tend to devellop a head shake at say 110km/h on a gravel road and when I set the damper to it`s hardest setting it helps  alot but stil tends to shake a bit ! Anyway I rode my buddies 690 this weekend and WTF I don`t know how you keep it on a gravelroad past 100km/h without a damper. Maybe it`s those michelen desert`s tyers we both have on the bikes ? How`s yours

I believe raisers can actually worsen head shake. Anyway, that aside; the 690 is a bumpy ride to start with, and you might confuse that with shake. Mostly you can ride through it, and it improves with higher speed. I found the 690 is prone to shaking with lower tyre pressures and certain tyre makes.

Change the tyre, ride at 2 bar plus, and ride faster  :thumleft:
