Next up: Try to start it
*disclaimer, I don't have a 690R or have I built a rally bike, I just tend to try to build shit brickhouses*

Do you ever worry about those fuel tank studs or that plate bending down from the weight of the tanks and full fuel? Or is the tank mounted well enough to keep that from happening?

Seems like a metal strap on top of the studs would help support that better.

Just a thought I had as I scrolled through the photos. :)

Should be no worries, as the tanks allso rests on the frame. If (when ) i smashes it hard enough to bend the plate or mounts, I will have a lot more to worry about....
Thanks for the "heads up". Any comment on the build is welcomed.

referring back to the very first thing you did on this bike (awesome bike BTW), how does the crankcase vent if you block off the valve cover SAS hole?

Did I say awesome bike?

Awesome bike man!

Hey Evil Invader,

Great job, your bike is looking awesome, well done.

Dont want to hijack your thread, but we have completed our bike as well using the upgraded 2012 690 R, and the bike is fantastic. Chris Birch tried it out in Atlantis dunes outside Cape Town earlier today. Check out the pics here: http://www.ktmcapetown.co.za/?p=6162

and some close up shots of the bike here: http://www.ktmcapetown.co.za/?p=6157.

Mods include:

Fairing and tank brackets
New seat base
New triple clamp to improve steering lock
Relocated fuel pump to front tanks to drain fuel from all tanks simultaneously
New exhaust header pipe
We currently running Tubeliss tyres with a Mitas E07 which gives great stability and all round performance


What an awesome bike and fun project!!!
