Yes, if there is nothing in the saddlebag and you have not cinched down the compression straps there can be contact. Load that thing up and tighten all straps. The compression straps will pull the bag up and away from the pipe. Keep an eye on this and maintain your straps! (They will stay exactly where you leave them tightened even when wet).

Need more info? Give us a call sir.
Thanks that's sweet

Later, no good, couldn't make it fit, I sent an email

Hey Dan -

Could I mount that V piece directly to the frame or would I need to use the KTM supplied grab handles?

I'd like to avoid mounting anything I don't need (like grab handles!)

I think it would go straight on - don;t need the grab handles - would need the spacers probly. Paul will give you what you need. Just tell him what you want to do.

Wolfman Enduro bags

Wolfman's Enduro set-up works well on the 690 without using the permanent mounts it comes with on the 2 rear straps, IF you have the grab handles/KTM tailbag mounted. 2 front straps go right to the frame with no issues from the exhaust.

One note though: when using the KTM tailbag with Wolfman's Enduro setup, and if Wolfman's duffle is 1) mounted (not req'd), and 2) really full, it does push you a little farther forward in the seat than you may want for a 200mile ride. If the duffle isn't full or isn't there, no problem.

Very well tied down kit and you can still access the fuel filler w/o too much trouble. Both tailbag and Wolfman together have capacity for a 7 day trip (not camping), using the tailbag for day-trips from base.

Those enduro bags look good. I take it they are just sitting on the sidecovers - is that right. they look ideal with the KTM bag and small duffel. I like your setup alot. Can we see some more pics please, say without the duffel and looking straight down and maybe one from the rear.

Don't have a pic from the rear, but here is one without the duffle.

Would it work well without a tail bag and without the grab handles?

I don't want to use the permanent mounting solution.

The more I see of the Wolfman Enduro bags, the better they look to me. Are the straps which attach to the frame on each side long enough to all sliding the whole unit back 5 or 6 inches? Would that put the left bag too close to the exhaust? I have the hardparts tail-bag mount, but I don't use it to mount the tail-bag, but rather, I mount a flat Kolpin tank.




So I'm wondering if it would be possible to slide the Wolfman Enduro bags further back so that they are next to the tank? I don't think were you have the bags positioned would work for me as I'm tall enough so that my normal sitting position would put me on top of the first cross strap which runs under the duffle bag.

Metal Mule V Piece

Anyone ordering a kit from Paul at Metal Mule?

If so - I'd be interested to see if you could procure an extra V piece - I'm afraid it will be too costly for Paul to send me just that piece from the UK to California.

Wolfman Enduro Bags

Snohobo - Wolfman set-up works well without the tailbag. The way I mounted them you need the grab handles to attach the two rear Wolfman straps to. Wolfman's instructions and hardware use a bolt through the rear fender with a ring on it for each rear strap attachment. The Wolfman bags come right off using either method, but using Wolfman's hardware you still have two bolts and rings in your fender when the bags are off.

DirtJack - when I got the Wolfman bags I thought the front straps where too short and so called them to get longer ones, which they sent straight-away at no charge, so that part is no problem. But, moving the saddle bags much further back and you'll have them hanging off the rear edge of the side panels/gas tank, and also running out of room to attach the rear straps on the grab handle mount rear screw sleeve. That said, the reason the duffle was pushed forward on my bike was the leading edge of the tailbag is more forward than that of your gas tank. You "may" be able to make this work on your bike with the tank; the duffle bag has quite a bit of leaway to move back even with the saddle bags in the position they are in on my set-up.
