Screen options

I really love my 2012 690. I have bought the RR tanks, bash plate and foam air filter. I just do not have enough money to do the screen as well at about $ 1 600 (x 10.2 plus shipping to South Africa).

It seems to me that a substatial part of the cost is the new head light. I therefore have a request please. Would it not be possible to build a screen using the existing brackets and templates AND THE EXISTING LIGHT? Hopefully this would reduce the cost.

What chance pretty please?

KTM 690 Enduro Billet Linkage

Due to requests from several ADV Forum members, we have produced a heavy-duty version of the OEM link to suit KTM 690 Enduro models.
This is CNC machined in 6082T6 aluminium, with thicker wall section than OEM part, and is a 2-piece unit for easier maintenance.It is identical hole centres as OEM part, so does not reduce ride-height.
Supplied complete with seals & needle bearings, natural anodised.
Available in 2 weeks on our website, price 130 plus VAT & shipping.

RR= Replacement Radiator?

I know I have asked before, but a year or two ago there was talk of you guys building a replacement radiator (possibly with a mount for a second fan) has anything come of that? My radiator is practically made out of epoxy now with all the repairs and I just can't see buying another overpriced stocker that is going to have the same problems (cracking on the backside of the fins/tubes.)

VAT/ExVAT Prices

Howdy John,

Could you give me a brief description of when which price VAT/Ex VAT applies to one of your products? I spent a bit of time reading some info I googled up. Would it be correct to say that if you are exporting the item out of the EU that the Ex VAT price applies?

If products are despatched to an address outside of the EU VAT Zone, then no VAT is charged.

Fork inserts

Hi John

I'm planning to order fork inserts soon. However, from the description I'm not sure which kit to order. I have a 2011 UK/Aus spec 690R.

It looks like this at the bottom as far as the compression adjuster is concerned:



Can you confirm which is the correct kit, please.

Those are 2012 spec forks Bill, should be the same in US/EU/AUS.

How long is the part of the chrome tube that is showing when the fork is fully extended, around 240mm?

Nope, 278mm when on a stand. The parts booklet that came with the bike says its PN 14187K4101 FORKS KTM 690 ENDURO-R 2011. I bought the bike in July 2011.
