Question KTM side case rack part number?

Dang it, KTM's gone and dorked with their websites again and now they're only listing the 690R and don't show any accessories for it. Does someone have the KTM part number for the 2008 690 Enduro luggage rack that holds the aluminum panniers? TIA!

(BTW, pannier part numbers are 60012024100 (41L) and 60012024000 (35L).)

ETA: Whoops--found it on ktm-parts.com. It's 76512020000.

29 liter Touratech Bags '08 690 E

I currently have the 29 L touratech bags with a KTM saddlebag frame, the Touratech frame was not yet available when I ordered my hard bags. Last week I was riding up in the Mtns. and took a digger at about 10 mph all the weight of the bike came down on the left hardbag. The bag took on some deep scratches. THe hardbags are just to bulky and being that there foundation is the gas tank, I ordered some Ortlieb soft dry bags they are only 4" wide and will have some give next time I go down. I am debating on selling the 29L Touratech panniers.

Here is my luggage solution:









I believe that its a Pelican 1500 case, got it from the neighbor for free , glued in some foam for the DSLR, the other side has sleeping bag, hammock, hammock straps. Rotopax will be here on Thursday and is getting mounted on the top of the pelican. I am going minimalist in what I bring...go light, go fast

It will probably get shakin' around a bit, but nothing it hasnt seen in a van through Kenya's prime road conditions, talk about bumpy! I havent tried it on the bike yet, just mounted it up last night, I see a lot of guys carrying them this way in the foam. Thats one reason I went with the Pentax, steel body. I have carried it a few times in my backpack with no issues. Atleast this way if I go down its not on my back. Do you have any experience with something like this? I would love to hear some feedback.

Is that a 17" on the front? How do you find it on the road? Mine make the bike very twitchy sometimes. the slightest input to the handlebars can induce a pretty good wobble.
