The hoops are pretty nice. I too thought about talking the racks off when not needed, but then figured out it was not worth the hassle and the wear on the components (tank threaded inserts).

The wolfman racks are pretty slim and unobtrusive. They also help reinforce the rear subframe and protect the bike in case of tip overs.

The Hoops are a nifty idea. They are priced as a set. The volume is a bit small, but unavoidable given the diameter of the rack opening.

I can snugly fit a med duty front and rear tube on one side and a Nalgene bottle in the other. Perfect size to stuff a rain shell in or some tools.

Anyone with the Evo2 Tanks/Shrouds only have the new Rally Raid graphics kit installed? Got a pic you could post, curious how it came out. Seen a bunch of the fairing kit w/ graphic - just interested in the new tank/shroud graphics kit

Thanks!

Flipping the Throttle for Cable Play

Great idea and mod in order to get that extra bit out of your throttle cables. In the future you can get a true +4 inch longer throttle cable sets at KTMTwins.com cheaper than a set of OEM cables from KTM. They have all the adjusters including all the adjusters you are looking for that aren't typically found on aftermarket replacement cables. For future reference.

That's a really nice looking bike, Hobbes.

Any photos from other angles that you can share with us?

Gorgeous scenery you have.

Question: you've chosen to stick with the high fender. Did you consider a low fender or not really?

Do they fit nice in there, or do you have to trim the plastic to make it fit?

The racks and top plate are Wolfman. Great product 100% recommended.

The LED light is a Baja Designs SII. The light fits perfectly in the KTM 990 grill, you just need to trim the mesh screen. The installation and fitment is a bit difficult and the space is tight.

I made a large square U shaped bracket that bolts to the sides of the rally fairing support frame and holds the LED light at the bottom of the U.

Gianluca,

Che anno e' la tua 690? Io ho la 2013 e sulla mia il parafango basso batte sotto il triple clamp piu basso a massima compressione e mi sta' ammaccando il sopra del parafango.
