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...
I have one too and it is a very nicely built product. I hope that I never need to protect the case, but its there for insurance. I also picked up their gas filler and it is of the same quality. The only thing I am waiting on for my bike is the Rally Raid tanks that should be available after the Touareg Rally. Then she will be complete

Luckily here in Italy we live in a "small" country filled with gas stations...

Anyway those tanks are, IMHO, the best option available today, considering size, cost (?), look and functionality.

Maurizio,
Enjoying this thread. Would you tell me the make and model of your folding mirrors. I like the folding ability but also need to see out of them. How would you rate them for vision and vibration? Thanks in advance!

I received a private message from a fellow ADVrider a few weeks ago with the same question: this was my answer:

"Those mirrors are pretty common here in Italy, and I bought it in a bike shop near home.
They are also pretty cheap.

You can easily find them on ebay: just an example:

http://cgi.ebay.it/SPECCHIETTO-SINISTRO-UNIVERSALE-MOTO-CROSS-ENDURO-QUAD_W0QQitemZ380205725558QQcmdZViewItemQQptZRicam bi_e_Accessori_Moto?hash=item588606f776"

I don't really know who manufactures them, maybe http://www.far.it/.

The rating about vision and vibration is as low as the stock ones... Maybe a little better as far as it concernes vibration, but the lenght of the stem is a little bit shorter than that of the standard KTM mirrors.

I use the bike very little on road (actually I use the bike much less than it deserves, but this is another story...) and the mirror is there mostly for Italian DOT rules...

Concerning the above headlights. I have the same; I was thinking the large one will be the default and the top one is the high beam. Are you happy with this way??

The top light is the low beam, and the larger is the high beam.
Exactely the opposite of my old 950 Adv setup...

The X2 is a good choice, IMHO, to get rid of the crappy EXC style stock headlight of the E/R, and also of the bulky E one.

It has a good light beam, almost equal to that of the stock Enduro (one of the best dual sport headlights I've ever seen).

Maurizio, thank you very much for your quick reply.
In a few minutes, I will be able to understand, how good they are.

Front is a second hand fork from an '07 EXC, 300 mm, completely rebuilt, resprung with 4,6 nm coils and different hydraulic valving, slighty hardened in compression and extension; the rear is a new unit for a 690 Enduro R, modified in the internals to gain 5 mm more travel (280 mm) and with a little softer hydraulic setup.

Hope this helps, ciao!

Yes, I did it.

I've shortened those two tabs of about 3 mm.

A little more detailed write up of the install is here.

I want to add a note: you have better soldering an internal threaded bolt or small tube to the base plate, and insert the long screw from the top of the filter.

Last bits

The "project" bike is almost ready.

Some parts have arrived and already been installed:

Rally Raid Products sprocket cover, covering a Z14 front sprocket:



Carbon Performance heat shields:



ProFill Australia fuel neck filter (PROFILL-ULTRA-MK2-EUR-0001):






Edit: ProFill now lists a "coming soon" filter made for "ACERBIS "small cap" KTM690 adaptor for the rear under seat tank", part code PROFILL-ULTRA-MK2-ACE-0002.
KTM Power Parts Z 46 "Stealth" rear sprocket, to be installed Saturday Night (no more Disco Dance since mid Eighties, here... ):



The Power Parts Ergo Seat will be in the KTM Italia headquarters facility tomorrow and immediately sent out for delivery, so I hope my dealer will receive it on next Monday or Tuesday...

I haven't seen any trace of it among KTM parts.

However there is a dustcover listed in the Twin Air catalog, but I am not sure that the part is the same (450/660 Rally Factory Replica '98->'10? )
