Thanks for the heads up! I'll definitely get a Giantloop Coyote too. Seems to be the way to go for adventure riding a rally beast.

Edit: Euro dealer Adventure-Spec is out of stock. Guess an order from US is required.

Was minding my own business today, doing ranch/yard work when Steve rolled up on the white witch.


Of course, I dropped the tool I was holding and jumped into my boots for a spin.


Perfect afternoon.





He wanted me to show you the MoJavi that he's packing with tools and such for day rides.

The Mojavi day pack works great for me it , I use it on three bikes 690RR, 690R and a 300XCW. with tools water bottle, folding saw ,snacks and small fuel bottle for the 300.I have yet to have this pack move give up its contents on very nasty trails. Don,t be fooled by the photos of gravel road we ride the good stuff,Dave is a true adv. rider,someone who seeks adventures ask the people who ride with him,

Thanks, folks. That Mojave saddlepack looks perfect for day-trips. I'll step up and order one soon. Excellent adv-rider concept that suits my needs perfectly! Easily extends the versatility of this motorcycle since a luggage rack is totally out of the question.

Question for Steve:
I got a pair of db-killers from Pal Anders Ullevalseter when he kindly gave me some tips on roadbook nav and ICO-usage.
They're still too loud for my prefs and look exactly like these on Ludo's ad:

Q: My question is what muffler inserts you got and if you had to rejet the carb and/or retune it using a dyno etc.?

I made these, they have cone spark arresters on the inside very simple to make start with a small exit pipe 90 degree turn down would make less noise, then drill small holes to get the right balance of noise and flow.I did not re jet ,but I like to run my bikes a bit rich,the rear of the 690RR is a little weak my came with a metal support you can see it in photos.I also went two larger on my rear sprocket as my bike had 100mph+ the lower gearing made it much easier to ride tricky sections of trail.

Thanks, Steve. I may modify the enclosed EU-homologation muffler ends to allow better airflow or even put in a pair of Acrapovic or Leo Vince db-killers. Either way I want a more ear-friendly exhaust note since I attract too much attention now. I've even had stupid cage-drivers trying to "compete" with me in traffic after I've passed them. And LEO's doing traffic controls gave me an ominous stare a few days ago. Luckily they were already occupied with a bunch of cars and had their hands full already.

I also noticed the extra metal tail support braces on your bike and will make some for mine. That CF toolbox/tail structure needs some extra support when my Coyote saddlebag arrives next week from the US.

I bought some DB killers from Akrapovic, but you have to make a special small alloy adater too, because they don't fit perfect.( different diameter ) It is not necessary to rejet the carburator but you will loose a little bit of torque and hp. My needle is on position 4 ! The tail of my bike broke because i put all my tools in it, but this is too havy for the carbon and alloy tail !!! Attention !!! When you want to put luggage on it you have to reinforce the tail for shure. Do you have the spare boxes in your bush plate ? You need them, you can put all the tools and little parts in it. I have a front spare tube in a
small bag over the lights behind the roadbook. And a lot of spare parts all around the bike, like the pro bikes from Despres and Coma. I baught also a better frontbrake disk from motomaster, it is a floater disk !!!
For a second ICO i made a special adapter / switch so i can use two icos and the original KTM odometer. But this is only necessary when you are roadbook riding. Good tires are the new pirelli scorpion rally tires, the rear tire is very big. Also i have a nice alloy switch for one ico and the roadbook. Now i did 12000km with the bike and it is still the best Offroad Allround bike i ever owned !!!

Thanks for the tyre tip.
Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires are sized 90/90 - 21 M/C 54R, 120/100 - 18 M/C 68R
and 140/80 - 18 M/C 70R. On mine the original 130/80 Michelin T-63 is on and I've got a good offer on used tires and parts from Pal Anders Ullevalseter and will stick with that until further. He's an extremely pleasant guy to deal with, BTW.

Mine has a CF tool box only on the left side of the bash plate. Pal Anders warned me that the bolts on this toolbox should be checked often since they tend to work loose and the box would melt against the exhaust pipe.

Same here. It's my first and best bike of its kind and I'm damn lucky to own it. Needless to say it's not for sale any more no matter the price offered.
This one's a keeper. I've done 3000km on it now in 3 weeks :) Giantloop Coyote saddlebags are now in customs and will be used in a couple of days. Thanks, Wachs & co.!

I had no problems, checking the bolts after every day riding ( off road- 350 km ) Check the left side of your exhaust pipe, my first cfk tool box get a little hole it it because of the heat from the exhaust, it was a little bit too near mounted to the box. Put some glue ( Loctite ) on the bolts.

May be Pal Anders has a lot of spare parts he wants to sell ?

According to him the light mask (front fairing) and front tanks are identical on the new 450 Rally bike. That means previous 690 Rally competitors may have the CF front fairing side panels for sale and some other parts not compatible with the new 450.
