Stupid engineer at KTM increased the duro of those rubber damper. Results : it breaks further down !!! Now the bolts breaks instead of inserts !!! Dummy !!! Those inserts are not big enough. Too hard for them to understand. I've installed the KTM luggage rack not to install lugages, but to reinforce this bike's butt ...

Pannier Rack

This a Pannier Rack that i have made , all i need to do is paint it and find some Pannier Bags to go on the racks???
The rack is made from 12mm solid black steel , it maybe over kill but it should carry all the extra weight that i will need to put on .



To fit the B&B rear rack i have made the mounting plate 80mm to the bend at the widest part .
The rack has had some 50mm square mesh added to the square part for extra points to attach stuff on and is now painted and drying .

Wolfman Expedition rear bag?

Has anybody had any luck installing a Wolfman Expedition rear bag onto their 690?

I've tried this afternoon, and it's not easy! looks like it needs to go on backwards, and even then there are issues with the fuel filler and proximity to the muffler.

Are you brave enough to stick a gallon of petrol next to the barbeque that is the stock can?

Doesn't get in the way. I'm sure it would fit on the left side - there's quite of bit of customization built into the mounting of that holder. I tried to tuck in as much as possible.

You get to drill the holes - so there's a lot of leeway on how to mount it.

The bonus is that when you lay your bike down - it acts as am axle slider.

Canuck rack

Here are some pics of my '09 with a rear rack i made. I just completed a trip to Radisson, Quebec with some buddies and i needed to carry extra fuel.

It's 5mm 5083 aluminum for the platform, and 6061 flatbar for the frame. Bolts through the KTM rack or rear grab handles. Works great, and easily handled 2 gal tank and gear without vibration. Access to fuel filler is maintained.

here are some pics.

I'm currently working on a rally-style bash plate as well as some other mods. A fantastic motorcycle.

I'm interested in the bash plate too. OEM is too weak, and there's no perfect after market ...

I'm not sure yet, perhaps. The top plate is easy enough (CNC machined) but the frame takes a little time. If enough people are interested i could make a jig and speed the process up.

Once i have the bash plate done i will submit some photos.

thanks for the gratitude.
