Congrats, your machine look's perfect now!

I do have 690R and after 'unexpected' meeting with car which happened in last year I am rebuilding my monster now. I was waiting very long for new frame ....but it is here and I am finalizing work. I have chosen similar direction as you - Trail Tech lamp + tacho, but have decided to mount at the same time steering stabilizer.

I have one question re tacho, especially about speed sensor, I wonder how you have mounted it on your bike? I was planning to keep original KTM sensor and plug it in tacho directly, but (as you can see on attached photo) connector plug is not the same, additionally KTM sensor have 3 wires while Trail Tech tacho have only 2.... Have you used Trail Tech sensor or somehow plugged KTM one?

I used the TT tach cable and sensor and tossed the stock 690 cable, due to the three wire setup, and due to my willing of retain all the stock parts in a box in the remote possibility to re-use them...

The only problem is that the sensor threaded hole in the front brake caliper support is slighty misaligned to the bolts of the front brake rotor, making the TT supplied magnetic bolt useless.

I epoxy glued a magnet on the rotor:



If you think it will be useful, you can have a look at some pics of my TT install here.

Ciao!

Now it's my time to make a question: is that steering damper the KTM PowerParts setup? It should be part # 76512905000.

I'm asking as it seems to have the frame post fixed in between the ignition key switch and the frame, and I was wondering if the steering lock is still working or not.

Yes, that is the one:

btw - KTM steering stabilizer do not have mounting holes in totally the same place as SCOTTS... I had to play a little bit with Trail Tech mount for steering stabilizer which is dedicated to SCOTTS

hmm... good question, I need to check it

re tacho cable - I will try to use original one, I am not planning to switch it back in the future (whole front of my bike was totally damaged, so I don't have original parts) I will ask for advice Trail Tech :) maybe they will figure out correct mounting of cables

Maurizio,

bike looks great, well done! Looking forward to hearing about how it handles.

Can you give the details of the forks and shock?

EXC forks? Did you shorten the travel?
690 R shock?

thanks
Grant

maurizio,

Any idea what your 690 weighed before and after this project?

Nicely done by the way.

The suspension spec's are as follows:

Fork: second hand WP 48 from a low hours '07 450 EXC, open cartridge.

Revalved with slighty harder damping and rebound, resprung with 4.6 Nm coils, no travel shortening, rebuilded and polished.

Shock: new WP for 690 Enduro R: revalved with slighty softer damping and rebound, polished internals, 2 mm more travel and lenght due to internal stop shortening.

With the fork legs 8 mm out of the upper triple clamp the bike looks leveled.

It's a work in progress, of course, suspensions wise: as soon as the winter will leave us, I hope to test drive the bike on some hard stuff to fine tune the setup.

Weight: I have not yet put the bike on a scale, but it should be about 6/8 kgs lighter than stock.

Still winter, here.

Waiting for some more finishing touches:



Carbon Performance heat shields.




Rally-Raid Products billet sprocket cover/clutch protector.




KTM Power Parts Ergo seat.




KTM Power Parts "Stealth" rear sprocket (46 th, coupled with a 14 th front sprocket, already on the bike).

Stay tuned!

Sprocket cover:

http://www.rally-raidproducts.co.uk/

Seat:

http://www.ktm.com/index.php?id=248&...616&isotype=10

Price here in Italy (and all around Europe, with small differences due to different VAT percentage) is 199,00 €; it seems to be readily available: my dealer told me it should be here next week, on monday or tuesday.

My wallet is really hoping for spring: it will be a more usual matter of oil, gas and tires...

The Rally-Raid Products sprocket cover/clutch guard has arrived.

A truly nice piece of machined aluminium, indeed.

Easy to mount, it looks really sturdy and I think that it will make its job in the bad case of a chain failure to protect the clutch actuator and the ignition cover. Highly reccomended!

Pics when all the other parts will arrive and be installed...
