Your wish is my command!



I'm 5'10"

The top of the fairing is exactly 14" above and 10" forward of the top of the fork tube.

Transforming my 690 Enduro into a comfortable back country touring bike

[/IMG]
I wanted to bring the KTM 690 Enduro closer to the smooth riding GSA1150.

I have made the following changes to date:
1. Extra large KTM hand protectors
2. KTM heated hand grips
3. Added 12V plug receptacle to the headlight housing to charge GPS/
iphone, use heat vest, or use with battery tender
4. Wolfman enduro tank bag
5. Wings exhaust
6. Pivot Pegz
7. Great Basin Giant Loop luggage
8. KTM skid plate
9. Rox Risers

I'm well on my way. Most important transformation so far? I've recently designed and built the prototype for an integrated, stainless steel fuel tank & rack system. Tweeking design as I write. The rack portion keeps the Giant Loop bag (or any gear) off of the body work and the exhaust system...keeping it from abrading. The supply line for the additional stainless steel tank flows into the existing tank as needed. Additionally, I integrated the Rotopak water carrying system into the rack as well.
I do a lot of desert and adventure riding so I've been looking for an integrated solution to include my Giant Loop Saddle Bag. My 'Gila' tank design will add 60% (120 miles) more range to my ride! I just returned with my 690 from the BMW rally in Salem, OR and it seemed like a lot of people were interested--either for themselves or their KTM friends.

Very impressive!

I assume you looked at the Rally Raid UK rear tank and/or the their EVO 2 front tank kits and found them wanting?

I've had the bike for a little while now, thought I should finally post up some shots.





These are from a 1,200 mile dual sport trip. If your interested in a ride report, here's one from when Cannonshot did it (he did a much better job of the report than I could ever do).

How did you like your giant loop set up?

Works well for short trips but way too small for longer ones. This trip I had a couple of spare tubes and tire irons in one side and and the other had my tool kit with some other miscellaneous small things. I will most likely put it up for sale and try to find something that I can fit my camping gear in.

The top roll is what I used for my camping gear and clothes. It was pretty top heavy and I was constantly worried that I was going to lose it and I had it strapped down tight. It made it through the trip, but it was moving around a lot in the rough stuff.

I have recently gotten the GL Mojavi saddle bags for days trips, and I have had the Great Basin for about a year for longer trips. The Mojavi works great for carrying a spare tube, tire irons, tools, and some water or a 1 ltr fuel bottle.


I'm no experienced minimalist camper by any means, so I strap a large dry bag on top to carry my tent and bed roll, but both GL bags seem to serve their purposes very nicely, and they are very well made.


I also recently picked up a GL Diablo tank bag. Again, well made, but I kind of wish I had gotten the slightly smaller Wolfman.

Just my .02
