? Brake line T is on top of the lower triple, fender is underneath the triple.

Right, but it angles down and the fender is higher than the bottom of the triple. Fender is loose in the pic, tight looks like the bracket is going to snap. Also the brake lines are tight against the sides of the fender.

Gotcha. I remember running into that as well. There are a couple options to help: One that I did was to invert the two front metal fender bushings so the front of the fender sits a little lower. Another option is to cut the plastic thing that holds the brake line T in half. Then you can rotate the two pieces outward to give more clearance. I didn't do the second one, I figured I'd see how everything was working before I did that- so far no problems.

I will give that a shot, thank you. The suspension has been raised to 245mm and the brake lines are stock so that may become an issue as well.

No Prob!

Add some 1/2" plastic spacers, sets it down far enough and no need to split the bracket!
Will rub a little but not enough to worry about.

Screw that dealer. I just got a set from Pro Griffin at Maroochydore for $100. But I did also just buy a 990 from them, so maybe the two are linked....

Call 'em and see.

Go to a different KTM Dealer and don't ask for a kit. (Talk to the boys at dalby moto) My front guard is off the 65, and the fork protectors are off something else. From what I have seen on the many mods, the lower fork leg protector screwholes don't line up correctly but it's easily worked out. I got the wire blake line keepers and the project may have cost about $150-$180.

I think I googled something like 'ktm part numbers high lift guard' and had a list to start with.

Failing that you can get KTM stuff sent to freight forwarders in the states. It won't save you much ATM coz the USD is up the shit.

Or PM me and I'll round up the part numbers next time I am in the shed.

Nope, Just paid $21,800 for a 2012 990ADV in White( same as above Woo Hoo)

But did see Mr Dalby Moto do the same as Mr Alberta for the 990 High Card kit using the original Fender...

High fender mod ... done

People have made brackets for the fork guards to mount them but all I needed to do was use a heat gun and bend the plastic around a bit to get the outer two bolts to line up then drill a hole to bolt in the center bolt








Here's a part list from ktm-parts.com
60013025100 brake hose guide x2
60013025050 rubber for guide x2
54808020000 spacer bushing x4
4700109400030 Fork protector set 85sx
That was about $40 and the fender was another $40 and its from a 690 enduro R smc

High Fender in Orange

(Apologies to the admin folks if I've broken a rule with this post... trying hard not to).

There is another option beside 690 fender.

Its made by Polisport.
see: http://www.polisport.com/motorbikes/produtos.php?ID=554

cheaper, stronger and slightly smaller (in my opinion) and has a groove to direct air to the rad.

I have used it on my bike for over a year and lots of highway and dirt miles, no problem what so ever. I didn't noticed any difference in highway compared with stock fender. I ordered it through my local bike shop.
