Wicked KTM690 Adventure-Spec Parts........

Its taken a while, but we've got to the final prototype stage of our 690 bashplate, the first in a long line of parts we have in development for this bike. This guard will come complete with stick on protectors for the vulnerable clutch and stator covers(photos soon)
The production versions will be annodized black.

Should be ready to ship in a month.




hole for oil sight glass


full protection for the brake mastercyclinder


G-iT: Guard-it-Technology, this corner was the last piece of the jigsaw and is a 'bandsaw special'. Production version will be tidy and the lower triangle will be part of the same ali plate folded







thanks for looking!

Annodized.......

Got a quick photo of the guard finished in black annodized.
A guy was desperate for it as he is off to Africa, so im hoping to receive some shots of it fitted to his bike.
We should have finished produxtion guards in about 2 weeks at which point i'll get the pro-photos done.

until then.........

provisional pricing is 149.95inc VAT, so for you guys stateside its 130.39 exc VAT. Shipping is coming in at 32.74 so you're looking at about $265 delivered at todays exchange rate.
This is what we're hoping to put them out at but is subject to change!
As soon as they go on the site they'll be ready for immediate dispatch from stock and that means 2 working days to the US.

Dirty Bike - Clean Guard

Well,

Don't wanna be too critic about your work, but realy realy seem geared to avoid protecting the notoriously weak brake pedal ...

few more pictures of final production guard, they'll be on sale next week.......


















And one of the case reinforcements we've nearly finished. We're not sure whether we should annodize these or leave them silver.... any thoughts?

the factory finish particularly on the clutch side is worn off easily by boots... how does anodizing compare?

probably leave em bare... cheaper too. speaking of cheaper... did i miss pricing? doh... found it... seems reasonable.

I'm in for both cover protections. (Clutch AND Magneto) Whenever it's ready e-mail me. I would prefer black anodized. How do you intend to fix it ? 3M two sided glued tape ???

covers will stick on with provided HT silicone. Annodizing will not affect price much as we get everything done, so get a good price. Not sure on prices for covers yet. The tooling to get exactly the right curve was pretty expensive and theres a surprising amount of work in them, so they wont be super cheap.

but they are super nice!

Protecting the brake pedal with a big sticking out bit was too much of a compromise.
I think the brake pedal is a whole seperate issue that needs its own solution.
A brake snake to the guard should be a good compromise until a better pedal becomes available.
