I'm a clip type master link guy, even on street bikes. Never had one pop off in over 22 years of riding. I did recently buy a riveting tool but still a pain in the butt.

WTB: KTM 690E/R front rotor.

WTB:
KTM 690 front rotor. Doesn't have to be OEM, just in decent shape. Going to be put on a spare wheel that may or may not ever get used.

May also need a generic 2005 and newer rear rotor.
