Order direct from Rally Raid. After shipping you'll save a ton. I saved 60$ on the upper and lower tank bolts and the sprocket protection thing' and they ship quicker then the posted times on KTM Twins site.

On two separate occasions, I've just ordered directly through the RR website system and received my order in a very short time. Highly recommend it.

KTM Twins accidentally sent me the wrong filter skins ...

I contacted them by phone, and the same day they sent the correct ones over to the other side of the world (i.e. to me) express post without charge ...

I have no complaints at all about that sort of service ...

I have had a few orders turn out not so well with KTMTwins, however the customer service always was exemplary and they went beyond what most places would do to make it right. They probably need a certain $$$ amount to order from RR to make it worth while. Shipping across the pond is not cheap.

I order a ton of stuff from KTM Twins, but for the RR stuff I go direct through RR.

Shook out one of the big bolts that secure the rear fender hand grips on during my last ride. They appear on the KTM Twins microfiche but only the grips are identified with a part number. Anyone happen to know the part number so I can order a couple of new ones? I can call them obviously, but where I am right now, it's not convenient.

Thanks!

Well, there was nothing in the 2008 owners manual about adjustable offset either.

Part number for the bolts is 0019080756.

The bolts are M8x75 with a 1.25 mm thread pitch.

The original is either Mahle KL 15 (up to 2011) or Mahle KL 97 (from 2012 onwards).

Part # for KL 15 is 4009026015186 (or 07132806) and 4009026729823 (or 70515773) for KL 97.

Napa 3011 and Wix 33011 should be similar and more common alternatives on your side of the pond.

So it looks like my 690 SMC will be no more. A lady pulled a U-turn in front of me a week ago, and I woke up in the hospital. Still not 100% on what happened... Or even 50%. Had all my gear on, of course, so that's why I'm still here.

The bike faired okay, but it tweaked, scratched, and bent enough things that the insurance company will total it. I don't think I want to purchase it back to ride (I was closing in on 18,000 mi), but I might purchase it back to part out, and wanted to give any of you guys first dibs. However, this all hinges on IF I buy it back.

The only parts that are absolutely trashed is the lower triple, headlight, and speedometer. Everything else faired well. Radiator mounts are tweaked, but it has no leaks, and works well.

SMC forks are in great shape, wheels are too (front has a very small ding, but it rides straight with no issues up to 110mph). Front is running Michelin Pilot Power with plenty of tread left, rear is wearing a Pilot Power 2CT with only about 1500 miles on it.

Fuel tank is in great shape, all threaded holes are still solid... I use anti-sieze on every bolt that comes out often.

I have a Renazco seat with repaired front mount. I riveted on a piece of 1/8" aluminum slotted for the bolt, so the seat doesn't move AT ALL anymore.

DID X-Ring Gold chain, front 16T sprocket, and rear 44T sprocket with only a couple thousand miles on 'em.

Euro tail and LED brake light with Integrated Turn Signals. I've wired it up so it's plug and play to the stock harness.

I have a few of the standard upgrades... Oberon Clutch Slave, Pivot Pegs (left is scratched), KTM Twins Billet Fuel Cap, ASV Levers, etc...

Frame is straight, but the main reason they "totaled" the bike is the steering stop is cracked under the neck. It's probably a 2 hour welding job, but of course they would only pay to replace it.

Engine has just under 18,000 mi on it, but it runs fantastic. I replaced both rockers within a few thousand miles, and have an RR Manual Cam Chain Tensioner.

Feel free to PM me with anything you guys would want, and I'll keep you all updated as to my decision. Trying to get a feel if it would be worth it or not. Thanks guys, I'll be back on 2 wheels soon...
