690 enduro r mods
Picked up my 690 enduro r last week, it's a 2010 model.
I have fitted an Akra can, removed the rear footpegs, but can anyone offer me any other good mods to get the bike trail and rally ready??
Iv'e also sswapped the tyres for AC10's.
I've adjusted the steering lock bolts as much as I dare, but is there anyway I can get more lock out of it, or is it now a case of spinning the back end around the tight stuff?

It only has 65miles on the clock and the map select switch is set to 0 is this for running it in, or has the previous owner never adjusted it?
The map settings are in the manual ,i think 0 is for poor fuel ,1 is offroad , 2 standard , 3 full power dont worry about the rest ,there is a humungous thread on adv rider all about these bikes ,but they do go a bit far with the mods ( Americans) ,basically get a good aluminium bashplate and handguards ,fit some proper tyres as the AC10 are useless ,and have some fun ,do some mileage to get the feel of the bike before spending huge amounts on bits .
You have had the acro mapping done after fitting the can i presume ?
Remove top rad cowl bolts,drill hole & cable tie on.Why, when ya bin bike off road.Bolt rips insert out of rad.Pack cooling fan cowl top bolt out with 6mm washer,silicone couple of sides .This prevents,Cowl chafing into rad.1 tooth less on front sprocket.Then ,ride it.
Cheers for all the advice? The rear rear cylinder does look exposed.
I'll start looking on eBay for parts and work out how far to go. Any further advice would be appreciated.

Touratech's got lots of stuff including guard for rear brake cylinder Touratech UK Webshop . Got the bash plate and engine guards, very nice parts!
The front is a bit nervous so will fit steering damper. Dealer recommended NOT to use the KTM one as it was no good, but reverted and said they had mixed whatever the problem was so just fitted one, picking bike up on Tuesday.
Bent the rear brake lver so got this

Youre better off sorting out the suspension/geometry first if that is an issue (ie before you install the damper).

Also, the fuel line, IIRC rubs on a bolt. Replace the rear tank filler if you want to keep shite out of your fuel tank. Replace the paper filter with a foam one. There are some other ones I dont remember too.
Here is a checklist - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...ostcount=10613

IMO, Adventure Spec make the best bashplate for that bike - which includes protection for the rear cylinder.
