Yup this what happens when your chain snaps and takes out the clutch slave



On a brighter note went for a wee trail ride today and checked out some rivers.

I'm not having any luck finding this bike in my area. One dealer says it can be ordered with a delivery time of 1-2 months. The other dealer says KTM is trying to force them to take Super Bikes before they can order the 690.
Unfortunately KTM is the ONLY game in town, no options.

+1 From what I have read here and there I would avoid the Touratech one. I have the RallyRaid one and it is substantial.

I am working with Outlaw6 to get these guards out there as soon as we can. We are looking to make a large batch if we can get the necessary interest.

I agree that the TT part is for looks, not for protection. The OEM part would do a better job IMO. The RR part is BO'd right now and is not anodized Orange. Looking for opinions on color options, right now a clear, black and orange option is what we are thinking. Orange is more expensive just because there are only two anodizers that can get the color right and in a way that it does not fade really bad. Clear and Black can be done all day and "local" to the TX machining shop that will be cutting the parts, so cost will be lower.

PM me if you want one and/or on the "list" as we start ramping up production.

Rally raid has this one
$122.00

KTM Twins sell the Touratech one for $80.00


I read once that the Rally Raid guard doesn't fit a 15t sprocket, but only the 14t stock size. Is this correct?
