The rear will swap like nothing you have ever ridden, it will throw you on the second switch, get the 2009 rebound stack and revalve more, reduce the slow speed compression, dont play so much with rebound, its just the stack, get rid of it as soon as you can. Be wary of this bike, its a nasty thing at speed and you can never relax on it, or as charlie says, three switches and your out! Fun, fun, fun.

Ooppps, sorry I just read youre post above, should be a great bike for what you intend to do with it, enjoy it, its a dream on garvel roads and long hauls.

Cummo, could you explain me exactly please the differences between the 2007/8 and the 2009/10 KTM 690 Rally Replica shock ?

Thanks Mic
