Yes. 690cc's. There's a chance it won't come to the US though.

I just noticed the Sigutech clutch slave is on the KTMTwins site for pre-order. Not sure how long it's been offered there?? Recently?
Anyway, it just got simpler to order one.

I've just seen some guys selling the safari and going to the RR.
I'm sure both are great, but riding in the west, more gas = more better.

I like it for the radiator and side protection... of course you've seen me test it.

When I entered the Wendover 300 on it you should have heard all the snicking comments about it. I kept it nearly empty and just used the main tank for the race; it worked out really well. Having the fuel light come on 15 miles from the pits would normally cause angst, but that little bit in the Safari tank allowed me to keep on the throttle.

They made me go to the end of line so "I wouldn't get in the way of their racers." It was a 1 minute staggered start and I came in 4th bike overall... Soley because of the bike; I'm not much of a rider.

Simple job. Bolts right in after you get a few things out of the way.
Unfortunately, only a one beer job.

I'm guessing that you drink very slowly.

Very large beer.
I turned wrenches for a living for 20 years so I always feel like I'm working against the clock.
In two hours yesterday I installed a set of Pivot Pegs, folding mirror, MRA windscreen, Uni filter, fuel injector and filter, Tripmaster switch, and wired a fused cig lighter adapter. I should slow down and enjoy the process now that I don't have a boss breathing down my neck. Upside though is that I've only got an oil change and pannier rack install left to do before riding season.

Damn. That job would take me 2 weeks. 80% of that time would be googling pics and instructions, 10% would be my first attempt where I screw it up, the next 10% would be the delivery and pick up to/from my mechanic.

Motoged- you should be ok with that old tire, but in case you get nervous and start looking to purchase a new desert tire- we like the Moto Z Tractionator Desert HT. Its a nice front for the 690- Distributor will have more inventory sometime this month.

heres the low down:

$1.99,

Yep....I fell in love w/MotoZ Desert Tractionators last year....used them in Baja for two weeks and then all summer back in BC....about 4000 kms on them and still 1/4 tread on rear and 1/2 on front (which has cupped due to pavement braking...but not enough to make for a bumpy ride on pavement).....60% off-road on the set....and waiting for a new rear again....seems the boat from Thailand/Oz is a bit slow.

I recommend the rear tire to everyone....like the front, but wasn't sure if it was the best choice for sandy conditions.

Barman do you mind posting pics of the tripmaster switch mounted up? I saw you asking about it a couple weeks ago and am just wondering how well that one fits on the 690 since its not made for it. im thinking about getting that same part number that was suggested to you a while back.
