KTM 690 Duke - Full Carbon Conversion

Hi All,

I just finished the Carbon Fiber Conversion of my KTM 690 Duke, and I'm a little proud of the result, so I thought I'd share a few pics.

All plastic parts Except for the gas tank) have been exchanged to Carbon Fiber - 15 parts total.

More details on the mods I did to the KTM here:

Looks nice!
How much weight did you cut from the overall total on the bike?

Did you weigh all the parts? Was there any weight savings, or is this just for cosmetics? Looks good either way.

BEAUTIFUL carbon Superduke 990 has mostly carbon too, but I´ve always thought that the 690 headlight assembly in carbon would look nicer in mine, as it does in yours
