Any of you 690 owners use KTM in Alpharetta for FI related work? Know if they have a guy there that is good with gremlins?

Good to know. More broadly, any recommendations for NGa FI smarts in the KTM know?

Do they actually do the work in their Alpharetta location or do they take the bike to KTM World in Cedartown? SR

I'd highly reccomend the Alpharetta KTM World shop for their mechanic. They actually don't work on the twins in Cedartown. The Mechanic in Alpharetta used to work road racing pit crews and really knows FI. I think you have to be certified to work on the twins. He has worked on a couple friends twins bikes and did good work. Nice to have a good KTM mechanic around. So, surely the 690 would be easier work for him. Can't remember his name.

I was thinking the same thing. I want to run the Sandblast but I am probably going to sell my SE. I was thinking that DS route from Atlanta to Florida would be the place to practice. I can't remeber where it's posted, but it's out there...maybe Georgia Overlander or maybe on here somewhere. Somebody definitely routed it out, just can't remember where.
