Finally found some 690 Engine Crash Bars. Saw these on one of the APC Rally Bikes he bought the bike with them fitted so doesn't know where they come from, as the bike has the Omega Rallye Kit I am guessing they are South African, anyone know the supplier or give me a link.

Not the same I don`t think Andy, but I have seen these fitted to one before.
Probably pretty pricy being Touratech, but well made & strong

Those KTM ones won't work with the Rally Raid Tanks whereas the omega ones come out far enough to protect the tanks and therefore prevent radiator damage without haviing to fork out for radiator protectors as well.
Sort of two for the price of one, I reckon they are the answer.

I think he meant you'd have no chance of getting warranty if you stick a rock through your cases, even though they supply the bash plate. We get the same plastic one on the Aussie model.

Flatland racing bashplate comes with the lugs welded on to slip into the frame, I just added the perfectly fitting radiator hose to take up the slack and vibration/noise

I have used B&B stuff on a few bikes now and I have to say the bash plate for the 690 is the only item I wasn't happy with, regarding the rear mount.

I agree Mazcal - B&B is generally very good - I put a Guard-It bash-plate on the 690, and love it - I got it from Adventure Spec in the UK, and notice that the same bash-plate is now being marketed under their brand ...

Its now been mounted using the plastic pegs off the original bash plate into the big holes where the old one went. And i must say is a hell of a lot quieter.

Nah, I haven't had any issues with the mounting at the rear - the issue I've had was the connection at the front. The GiT has a similar rear connection to the original bash plate of which I'm very happy with.

I bought mine through Adventure Spec, but thought I was ordering the GiT (the link from GiT take you to Adventure Spec). Was a little annoyed as the pics on the Adventure Spec website show the bash plate marked with GiT, but the actual bash plate arrived with AS marked on it. Doesn't really matter at the end of the day.

They've updated the picture now, but the bash-plate looks to me to be identical ...

I was a bit sceptical about the durability of the paint - but so far it's scrubbing cleaner than raw aluminium does ...

Do you think they would work with a Safari tank? I think it is doubtful
