Any news from Metal Mule ???

Curious to hear if Paul @ MetalMule has finally finished work on the racks and luggage for the 690 Enduros of Dandini et al. I checked the MM website recently but alas, no updates regarding this work. I know I am still quite interested ...

Cheers. Mark

He did say he would be at the Ally Pally show showing the system for those in UK

They're offset from the centerline of the bike by 5/8" to the left because of the muffler.


Have you ridden with the bags attached and loaded? Do they look like they would carry a load and not tear away at the attachment points?

That rack looks huge!
I'm looking for something small,just big enough to strap a gallon jug onto to extend my range a bit.
Touratech is supposed to have a new piece out made for the 690.Anybody seen or have an opinion on it??

Gobi Bags

I have not seen anyone mention the Gobi 950/990 bags here. Will they fit on the OEM rack from KTM? Can they be used at all on a 690E?

There's a post somewhere here saying the Gobis dont fit.

Another Touratech rack

There's a few Touratech racks fitted to the 690 but most seem to require a bit of work to get them to fit the hard part horse shoe rack mount due to badly placed holes in the rack. I've fitted this one thats made for a BMW F800/650GS that manages to line up all metal at the mounting points on the horse shoe.

Just to let you know (all who have been waiting patiently) the Metal Mule luggage was fitted to my bike today - I have to say it looks great and very strong. Pics will follow shortly..

Looks great Dan!

I've already got the tourtech pannier racks ... do you think the metal moose top box rack will work with it?

Also I'm curious how strong those boxes are ... are they close to the right size and strong enough to use as a center stand?

Thanks

rick

These racks seem a fair way back - probably assist with wheelies
