Thx for the photos. I have converted the break lines of my 04 950 which is taller than any other none-S version, to 2010 R 990 specs. That gives the lines a "S" shape as supposed to straight down.

The length of the lines worked beautifully for my 04.

The only unresolved issue for me are the fork guards. I have a set of 85 SX gaurdes which I don't really like and won't use. I have sent the break lines to the OUTSIDE of forks. I'm not quit happy with the setup. They are rubbing against the forks:



looking at this:


If this person has cut the stock fender, it doesn't look like the top part of the fender is kept. I don't now how that fender is staying in place! with just 3 bolts at the bottom?!

This person has cut the fork protectors/guards, and does not look like the one on my previous post.

are they made by KTM? I like them a lot over 85 SX version.


photo from BlackDog website.
Thats how I did mine, cut using a 4" angle grinder utilizing the low fender (it was cracked from mud etc). One issue I had was high fender clearing the engine guard just in front of the radiator. By clipping a couple of inches off the fender and using thicker spacers in the 2 holes to the rear bolts on the fender and perfect fit. It tips the fender up in the front a bit away from the radiator. I added a mud flap thingy to keep stuff falling into the skid plate area.

The one concern is rubbing of the brake lines on the fender. Watching for a wear pattern but it seems fine and I ride it pretty hard off-road.

Thx Tony,

so those two photos are showing the same fork protectors! for some reason the shadow lines on the top one made it look different.

I'd like to keep my stock fender. I'm just searching for fork protectors that look better than 85SX ?

This is the fender I installed:
http://www.polisport.com/motorbikes/...?ID=55&marca=1

It clears the radiator by about 3/4" to 1/2". Looks well made.

Polisport

I'd like to see a photo of that Polisport fender on a bike.
Also, how much do they cost?

PolisPort - universal - SM line fender

RE: PolisPort - universal - SM line fender

since there is interest in this fender I'd like to share that I have since moved the break lines to the INSIDE going down between the tire and the forks. It may sound crazy, thinking the lines will get grab the tire but they won't. The fender keeps them away. I have ridden the bike with this setup for two seasons and over 20,000km with no issues.

That Polisport SM fender is too short and you'll be eating mud!

Have onde almost brand new in my shed, waiting for a bike with a smaller wheel

When I finally get around to doing my high fender I want to use the standard KTM wrap around fork guards for added protection and more durability. First time you lay the bike over and a rock scratches the lower fork tube you'll wish you had them. Had this recently happen to my CRF450R and I'm thinking about retro fitting them on that bike now.

Anyone know where you can get a white front fender for a 690 Enduro?

I can not disagree more!

I have ridden in rain, mud, snow, dirt, sand,... any condition I guess with this setup and never ate mud! I love riding in mud though.

Look up the parts fiche at your dealer's website. Be warned that holes at the bottom might not line up with your forks, but there are ways around it. Look up other high fender threads here, there are lots of photos. You have two choices as far I remember.

I run an Acerbis short fender which looks just like the Polisport to me. I use the KTM 85 fork guards, with a strap adaptor to align the bottom holes between the fork and guard. I run brake lines inside the fork legs, using original top guide on left side guard and Zip tie on right side. Worked well for 8000 miles including Alaska with some mud and muck.

Have a set of brand new orange fork guards to sell.....

FWIW

Thumb I really like Taurkon's design

It worked out great for me. I used all the parts in Taurkon's list. They all worked great. I just put in a few seconds with a heat gun to help the screws line up, and drill a couple of holes for the third screw on each side, and it is a done deal.
