  2. Duke 2 seat wanted (silver) or full plastics kit including seat

    Hi all. mum after a genuine seat, or seat cover for my aging 2001 duke 640. It’s a silver one, champagne? Whatever they call it. I’ve owned the bike years, but stupidly used some PVC cleaner to try and clean some marks off the seat, it’s ended up eating into the material and now it’s all...

    Bikes and Bits wanted
    I'm about to modify my Duke II, and is going to mount a high front fender and another headlight, to make it look like a Supermoto. :D I think the headlight from the 950 SM looks very good, but other enduro headlights may also work, i would also want to have the surrounding cowl and plastic. I'm...

  5. Push starting a 690 Duke 2012+ ?

    Hi Has anyone ever push started a 690 Duke 2012+ model? If so, what road speed, what gear? If you did, did you need to push the starer button to "convince" it that it wanted to be starting? Or does anyone _know_ that this bike cannot be push started? I tried asking my dealer and no-one knew...

  9. 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...

    General Discussion
    As the title says, does anyone know what this is called (I'm guessing it's a washer of some sort) and if they know where it can be bought in the UK (online)? http://imgur.com/a/IoWE6 http://imgur.com/a/yc9B1 When changing a few rusted bolts I noticed that on the front mudguard of my 690 Duke...

    Hi all Does TuneECU work on the 690 Duke 2012? The fourth / IV version. The TuneECU website says it does not. And there's no maps for this model. This company that makes up a cable for you also says it doesn't work. What's the deal here? I wanna get hacking with the bottom end throttle...
  13. My Duke in kangaroo mode

    Riders So my rear suspension has felt a bit odd for months. A bit saggy when throttling out of corners, crap with pillions. Then during this winter I noticed a step change in how sh1t3 it felt to ride. Please review this video and see what you think could be up...

  19. I've Had It With KTMs!

    General Discussion
    I bought a 2012 690 Duke new just 2 years ago now. I know this because my warranty is now up and I will not be able to afford the bike outside warranty. My experience is thus: Disintegrating indicator switch at week 2 - new switches! Weld failure at catalytic convertor to tail pipe join - new...

    Hi all, My speedo cable has snapped and as much as I like to ride at (ahem) speed limits it would be good to have one. Done a good search about but can't find one. Anyone with any ideas or even ones from other bikes I could use? Many thanks Tom
