Bring it on!

Anyone running any Ortlieb or Wolfman bags off the back? I suppose you'd have to still use some sort of rack to keep them off the nuclear reactor.

Need Dirtbagz... :deal

I sent them an e-mail, but haven't heard back from them yet.

I don't really want hard bags on this bike. Something soft and light is more what I am looking for.

Hey Dirtbagz, :lol3

We need some nice dirtbagz for these here scooters (KTM690 Enduro). The mounting points are there. If you build it we will buy. :deal

Thanks in advance!

Oh yeah send it here

Hi Steve,
Is that tank bag the KTM unit?

If it is, I will be looking elsewhere.

I loved the BMW tankbag on my '01 GS, but the one that came with my '07 Adventure is WAY TOO BIG! So much so that I have never used it. I did take off the cross bar off of the handle bars to make room for it, but it is just too big. I need to sell it to someone with lots of storage needs and get something smaller.

Does anyone know the part number / name of the U-shape bracket that bolts onto the regular luggage racks? I think it's for the top case. I saw it on p 269 of the threadfest forum.... I already have the regular suitcase luggage racks, but want the topcase bracket to attach to it.

Side note: I am working on integrating the stock grab handles into the luggage rack mounts. I want to give my pillion something to grab onto and keep hands away from that notoriously hot exhaust. Initial take: The bolt size is a flat socket cap screw size M8 1.25 x 70mm. If you cut off the bottom of the stock grab handles, you can use a longer bolt, pass it through the handles AND the luggage rack mounts. I have 90mm size on order, will post up with the fit results later this week.

The Wolfman Enduro Bag fits the 690 very nicely. I have one on mine.
