For the front rotor guard, check out http://www.toparracing.com/front-dis...o-530cc-350cc/ I emailed them a year or so ago to see if it would cover the 300mm rotor and I was told that it would be close but they could change a number here or there before machining to make it fit. I never discussed price as work has been slow so my toy budget has suffered.

That looks like the Bullet Proof unit. Much cheaper. Heck even if they charged an extra $20 it would still be less than the BP unit. I think it is worth checking into. Thanks!

Thanks for your reply's
I would spend a few bucks on the G2 throttle cam first, and see how it feels then.

I ordered directly from the vendor. He also sells on KTMTalk. Doesn't list this unit there though.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/200770720339...84.m1423.l2649

Cheaper ordering off KTMTalk or direct.

Edit: Here's one of his KTM Talk links.

I think that is the same LED unit part of the assembly I'm getting. Nice.

I have emailed BPD several times now asking them if they would make the front disc guard for a 690 but no response. Maybe us 690 owners can start an email campaign like we did on the swingarm guard and get them to make one.

You should try and add more fuel with the pot switches in all three bands. It's a lean condition, dollars to donuts and the G2, won't fix that.

thanks, tomorrow I'll start adding some fuel and see what happens. I was going to sell because I'm short, but Ive ordered a link to lower it and we'll see how that helps and I ordered a new spring from super plush for my big but.

Nice. I got the same and like it. I wired mine up with the stock pigtail from the old tail light harness so I could swap back if I wanted. Not like I would... If you need any help, lemme know, but the guy gives good directions.
