2013 KTM 690 flywheel change/questions?

Has anyone out there changed the flywheel on a 2013 KTM 690? Mine's a Duke in particular, I'm not sure if the same-year SMC/Adventure has the same exact engine or not.

I'm curious how big of an operation it was, or if you had someone do it, how expensive the labor was and what you used for an alternate flywheel.

Does anyone have a left-over flywheel they'd be willing to part with? Or can anyone tell me the part number of the flywheel on this bike?

Personally what I want is to try a heavier flywheel, to get the engine to behave better at low RPMs. As far as I can tell, nobody makes a heavier one for this bike. Any conflicting info about that would be greatly appreciated. So, I'm struggling to find a solution. Steahly says that to build a custom heavy one, they'd need the interior dimensions of where it goes to see where they can add material. I have no easy way to get that info - does anyone here?

How specialized is this skill? Can any performance shop do this (well), or is it a 1 in 1000 kind of thing?

Any help/info/insight would be greatly appreciated.

Call these guys. Flywheel weight is the ticket if it's available. Although the simpler method would be to adjust the dip switches under the seat.
2014 KTM 690 Enduro R, 2014 EXC500,2012 BMW GTL1600, 2015 BMW F800 GS Adventure, , 2015 Ducati Hypermotard SP and 16 other motorcycle projects in various stages of completion. It's an addiction thing.
