A picture showing the reinforced rear tail structure and Akrapovic exhausts.
Craig Bounds on a 690RR during the Dakar 2010:


Guess I'll have to build at least two metal tail-end supporting bars extending from the exhaust fasteners upward to the tail structure to improve its durability.
That should also improve the hookup of the GL Coyote saddlebag and make things better at the rear.

The number plate holder cracked and was held dangling in place by an indicator wire recently. So this thing needs some aftermarket work yet
