  1. 2017 Duke 690?

    General Discussion
    I have test rode a 2017 Duke 690, the one with the revised engine, TFT screen etc, I loved it. Really impressed with the power, the seating postion and how it rode. Didnt get to test out handling due to very wet roads. Enjoyed the reassurance of ABS, TC and slipper cutch. Vibrataions minimal, I...

    Hi all On my 2013 690 Duke, one of my front forks has an odd widening of its diameter near the middle. * At the top the circumference is about 160 mm. * In the middle, the diameter is about 171 mm. Is this propa f0cked? That's just the left one, not taken the other out yet. I broke a 45 mm...
  3. 690 Duke 08 Map/Tune ECU (Stock Exhaust)

    General Discussion
    I know there's about a thousand threads about tune ecu on the forum... So I apologise if this topic has been discussed (I had a glance and couldn't see it). I have a 2008 690 Duke (with A2 throttle restriction unfortunately) and like a lot of people I have found the throttle pretty snatchy...
  4. 690 Hot in traffic/stop start (Fan Thermostat Upgrade)

    General Discussion
    Hi all, I fairly recently started riding a 2008 690 Duke and noticed on days with particularly heavy traffic usually while commuting, the engine temp gets right up to 9-11 bars depending on the air temp. I read that this is by design to ensure the cat works at optimum, however I'm sure most...
  5. New throttle tube for 2013 690 Duke

    Supermoto
    Evening Today I managed to break my 2013 690 Duke thottle tube while twisting on a new heated grip. Luckily it's 99% on. The grip is holding the tube together now (you can hear the cracked plastic underneath the grip) and I don't need to twist it on any futher. Anyone know where I can get a...

    Just bought a 690 Duke, it's being delivered on Sunday. Any major faults? Anything needing changed? Will post a bit of upgrade work and hopefully some ride out pics too. I best be off and spend a few hours looking through the forum. :)

  8. Remus underfloor exhaust for 2012MY 690 Duke

    Supermoto
    Hi Has anyone any experience with this exhaust? http://www.remus.eu/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/KTM-690-Duke_under-floor.jpg I personally think it looks gorgeous, brings back the funky underfloor exhaust of the Dukes of yester-year, and apparently it sounds it bit better too. I've not...
  9. 2012 690 DUKE Mappings

    General Discussion
    Maybe some one can help me here. As you know the Duke has 3 engine mappings. I cannot find anywhere what effect these actually have in technical or subjective terms. All I can get out of the press is a recommendation to stick with 'standard'. I can give a notion of what standard and 'sport?'...
