it it really started about 6 months ago with some sexy WP twin chamber forks

It'll be good to see what you end up with. I nearly bought one 3 weeks ago (new) which was going to cost me around the 15 k mark. Then you need to start spending?? Luckily a pristine 640 adventure came up with around 4 k on the clock and I saved around 5 k on the 690 with no need to modify it too much. So I took the easy option. Albeit with a bit more vibration than the 690 donk. Good luck with your project.

What's the benefit with piping the exhaust low as pictured above? Do you make more torque with the extra piping or just make it easier to mount accessories with the pipe being out of the way down there?

In fact it should make more torque and change the power curve the pipe is roughly 350mm longer and if I actually stayed awake during math I probly could do some really trick equation to estimate the torque gains but I,m a dumb ass

But ,m doing some thing different to EI with my pipes it may pay off it may not , but it will look cool (I hope)

690 seat troubles

Hi

Has anyone had these problems with there KTM 2011 690E seats



The 1st is that it has cracked laterally between the 2 rubber supports above the battery. I have "fixed" this with fibreglass and by moulding a solid rubber support which sits on the battery bracket , straddles the wiring and fully supports the seat.

The other seat problem, which is baffling me, is the next set of rubber supports either side of the airbox that sit on the frame. The seat has spread apart and is now wider than the frame. The rubber supports no longer are on the frame.

Both these problems have occured with the stock seat and KTM power parts all day seat I purchased

Have anyone else heard of this?
Does anyone have a solution?
Has anyone or no anyone who might have a solution?

Not personally - might need to talk to the bloke on the Wunderfest thread who fessed up to weighing 300lb ...

If it makes you feel any better it's quite common
