690R. Hot rod parts

Greetings, I have a question for the folks on the other side of the pond.I am looking for any and all performance parts that might be available for the 690 engine.
Back in my RFS moto x days I got some parts from Austria,the company was Schnieder? I believe .Is there someone making cams,big bores,etc.
I just about finished my 690R rally conversion and mainly because stock is not an option for me would like to do some upgrades to the engine. Thanks

Thanks for the replies,mine is a 2010R.The engine is stock at this point other than the usual de-EPAing ,FMF can,Akropovic map and the Rally Raid air filter.
I know most of you guys seem to believe the 690 is good stock but it just seems slow to me.Not that I was all that good but my mxer was a 540 RFS ,ported,big valves,cammed with 12.5 to 1 compression. I'm not looking for big horse power just better throttle response and mid range as I am planning on doing a couple of rallies and the bike needs to be rideable .thanks again Fritz

German company called Großewächter has put together some CP pistons kits for KTM 690's: http://www.gw-racing-parts.de/index2...s=2010&lan=en#

If you just want better throttle response, you can try tuning via TuneECU. Lots of adjustment there. Big thread on that. Expert is inmate AMa.

There was a thread floating around from super moto junkie about a guy
that had his 650/690 taken out to the 690 spec.

The work was done by Tom Zont Racing, IIRC
There was also some discussion about a 710 kit !

I am aware of tuneECU but that comes after I do whatever it is I decide to do.
I do want a much stronger mid-range as my main aim.How I get there is the question,The KTM rally cam is set-up for an increase at higher rpm so it's not going to work,but I have to believe that with all these engines used for super moto that someone has the cam etc I want. Big bores can be made pretty snappy as witnessed by my 540RFS but it had a 41 FCR carb and not the injection that I have to work with on this.
As far as the 710 big bore I actually have a friend(Eric Gorr) who can do that for me .He's the one that did my 540 RFS
Thanks for the suggestions keep them coming. Fritz

Drop in a 2012 crank and hi comp piston .clean up ports thats all you need to do.the standard injector may not keep up with bigger cc' then 690 thsts all
