Looking for a KTM690 in PHX to borrow

Hello all, it's been awhile, I've been off chasing dreams or a different sort of late (trying to qualify for the ISDE) and my dual sporting has fallen on the wayside lately (Until last month: LINK).

Specifically, my KTM690E has been neglected. It came down with an electrical gremlin and I was too busy chasing races and then nursing an injured knee to get it taken care of. My mechanic has troubleshot as much as he could but it's coming down to needing to test some black boxes and such. The easiest method would be to borrow a functioning bike to switch out components out to find the offending part.

Anyone willing to help a rider out? I can promise some bench racing, travel stories and a case of your favorite beer for the loan of your KTM690 (preferable Enduro).

640

Got a 640 that you can borrow if the parts are the same. I know they both have the LC4 but thats about it for my knowledge.

Johnny5 is the real deal

If I had one, I would ship it to you.

Folks, This is one awesome gal. Great rider and a great person. Check out the photo pages from 2 Kings of the West rallys she kicked ass on.

Step up if you can!

Good luck,

Jim

Thanks for the offer but the parts aren't common between the bikes

I don't know if I ever saw you on your 690! I've been gone too long


Okay, really still looking for a bike... Pretty please?
