rally raid 690 enduro rally engine guard

Does anyone have the RR 690 Rally Engine Guard, the one with the water carrier.
Like the idea of having space low down to store tubes/tools or water if necessary.
cheers

Thanks for replies.

Currently have the GIT one which is excellent but thinking about the RR as it looks like it will be a bit more flexible for if I wanted to carry tools or water without carrying them either on the back of the bike or in a backpack etc. Hate carrying water in a backpack and could just attach a tube and route through and up bike to near bars for water.

The one thing I'm wondering is that it looks a bit wider/longer than the GIT and wondering if it will get in the way when/if doing the more rocky technical type of tracks. Also the GIT is pretty solid and wondered if the RR is just as robust.

Cheers

Also, any idea what you can fit into the RR toolbox item? Standard KTM toolkit and or anything else?

Not sure if carrying the tools/kit down low on the bike is better than carrying on the back or in a backpack but it will at least help me not forget stuff!!

My mate has spare sprockets in his bash plate. He carries all the tools needed to work on the bike plus spare tubes in the RR kit tubes u see on his bike. He also has other thing on the bike. It was set up for a RTW trip by the last owner (RoninMoto)so I'd say u could see what he did with it and you could PM him for what he did and what he would change. I know he'd be delighted to reply with all relivent info. Very helpful fella.



Here a link. He fitted all the RR products on this 690.
