Hi Guys,

Just following up. Bullet Proof Designs now has the programs finished and is ready to start taking orders for the KTM 690 Swingarm Guard.

http://shop.bulletproofdesigns.com/product.sc?productId=114&categoryId=30

This is using our latest design. It takes more time and additional set up's but the finished product is awesome!

The price for this guard is a little higher to account for the new design but it's still pretty cheap compared to a swingarm!

Orders will start shipping Thursday 8/8/2012.

Thanks,
Nate Scott

I told you we were trying to get a bike in the shop so we could determine if we can build the guard for the 690. My local shop just confrimed I can pick up the 690 Enduro on Wednesday. Once we get some measurments I will let you guys know if we can start taking orders.

Thanks,

Thanks Nate! This new design looks awesome. Artwork in metal for the 690.....
I really like how it now protects the fasteners too as that is how my tabs broke. Rock caught on the edge of the bolt and ripped it through the stock tab.....

Order Placed.

I've been trying to keep mine stock, but that is a nice bit of kit for $75. I'll think on it.

Hi guys

I've just flogged my WR250R and am in the market for a new steed with more power at the wheels for some road work. At the moment I'm gunning for a XT660Z Tenere, but the weight is putting me off.

I'm really drawn to the 690R due to it's weight and power, but want to know that as it's a 6 speed box and primarily built as an Enduro bike, are the gears quite tight or can you change the sprockets to cruise at 80mph, but still off road it, i.e. an Adventurized version??

Cheers

They are tight, but not that big a deal, you just won't be lugging it to get to 80.

Just did a long ride around Europe on mine with stock gearing and runs just fine at 80mph on the road. Was thinking about going up a tooth on the front, but in the end didn't. Longest day was just over 500miles with short stops for refuelling. Won't be as comfortable as the Tenere, but a lot more fun
