    Just picked this bike up second hand from a dealer after spending the last 8 years on a 2005 SXC625. God I loved that bike, yeah I know it was big on vibes, the seat was a vinyl covered 4*2, and it slurped fuel like a sailor on leave. <br /><br />But Christ it was a willing partner in off-road adventures. Steep rock strewn hill climbs, bogs deep enough to pour mud into your boots, single track forest lanes, or hard pack gravel roads, just pull the trigger and hold on. At the end of the day just hit it with the high pressure hose, change filters and your ready for next week. <br /><br />I put on 34000ks before blowing the motor on the highway to Sydney. I already knew the worth of the bike had dropped, I had already tentatively shopped it around as a trade-in and hadn't been offered more than $2,500AU. Got quotes to rebuild motor from $3-5,000. It looked like throwing good money after bad. <br /><br />Sold it to a wrecker as is for $1,250 and bought the 2012 690R Enduro as its replacement. Only had it two weeks and done 300ks none off road yet (this weekend) so I don't know the bike too well yet. <br /><br />Vastly different machine to the SXC, apart from being way more sophisticated (dual spark, slipper clutch etc etc), the first thing I noticed when I got it home (trailered) was I couldn't fit my bike lift underneath. Going for a ride the suspension feels wound up really stiff, not bad on the bitumen but needs to be softened before the weekend. <br /><br />The first 4 gears are so close together, I don't know what sort of riding they're for but not the sort I do. Once your up in 5 & 6 there is no need to change too much, torquey single cylinder and all that. I'm worried 1st will be too tall off road, I'll find out on the weekend, there is a few remedies if this proves to be true. <br /><br />The first 250ks returned 29ks per litre. I checked my calculations, I couldn't believe it either. I did mostly twisty poor quality back roads and didn't often get over 80kph so I expect that to come down once we get to know each other and start to push it a bit harder. <br /><br />Will post another rant once I've got to know the bike a bit better and if I can think of anything interesting to say. Read the thread on 690Rs and their oil burning tendencies, watching the oil glass like a hawk.<br />

    I'd give it a five star if it wasn't for all the problems it had to begin with. Poorly tuned and a defective fuel pump from the get-go. Too bad KTM wasn't on top of it.

    Love my other bike, a 2014 Honda CRF 250L, LRP, but this KTM 690 is a dream come true! The Honda is pretty much gutless on the highway, Offroad, with a ton of mods, it kicks ass! The KTM 690 is lighter and Has more Horsepower than a sane person will ever need! This is my new all around Adventure bike!
  8. I'm undecided what to do.ive been checking the Ktm 690r and it seems to be the perfect dual sport for me. I currently have an 09 xr650L with a pipe,UNI filter,oil cooler setup,carb upgrade. I can't seem to get over the fact it doesn't have balls galore!! Also that it's somewhat of a heavyweight on the tight tecnical trails. So my question is should I keep dumping more money on her or just keep her as is and buy the ktm.all inputs are welcome.

    This Bike is the best. It has no end to power and eats up back tires like they grow on trees. With it's 320lbs. and my 220lbs. we are like 500lbs of rolling thunder on the trails and a orange streak on the roads. It made me learn not to fall over in the rough.

    Love the bike! Dislikes - #1 fuel filler location is THE worst location and a HUGE dirt magnet #2 - steering radius/steering stops suck!

    I've added over $4k of modifications to this cycle shortly after purchasing it. I'm intending this cycle to be a dual sport in purpose, and a USA BDR rider in particular. So, it will see freeway roads and speeds in excess of 75 MPH with hours of seat time slabbing it. It will also see sketchy two track and possible some single track, mud and for sure, some deep sand. So, *lots* of different conditions will be in view during the build, and as you consider the mods I make, please keep in mind my purpose for this cycle. Everything is a trade off, a compromise. Including cost. For instance, I did not / will not add a Rally tower or Rally type lighting. It's just too darned expensive for my purpose. But, I *am* big on protecting the cycle from hits and drops. So, I build out a layered approach to protection, with an eye on weight since I'll have to pick it up when I drop it. I'm also big on protecting *me* in these various environments. I can do something about the (my) body protection with various clothing armor pieces. I try to be seen, too. So, I'm big on lighting up the front, back and sides because drivers need to see me as best as I can make that happen. Sure, BDR riding does not need all that lighting. But, getting there and connecting the trail bits via roads *does* need it. So, it's on there. I referenced a lot of other folk's builds, picking out the pieces that I thought would be beneficial without adding too much weight, cost, or just too "blingy" for my taste. Kudos to Rocky Mountain ATV.com, and ADVPulse.com for their build descriptions. I also bought from KTM Twins.com, but I'm not very happy with that experience (returns take forever, and they dinged me for a lot of cash, for doing it). Probably not buying from them, if I can help it, anymore. Have a look...

    This thing bucks like a wild bull on steroids. You won't find a more powerful dual sport bike. I love it!
  25. Hi, Noob question here - I am trying to decide on which dual sport bike I should get. A brief history on my path to the KTM 690 It started with wanting a dual sport that I can ride short distances (<50mi) to the trail. I wanted something lightweight and reliable. So I narrowed things down to the Yamaha WR250R vs the Suzuki DRZ400S. From what I have read, a majority (though not overwhelmingly) prefer the WR. For the following reasons: 6 sp trans, better shocks, better components all around, Wide Ratio Gearing to name a few. The DRZ was revered for having more torque, better fuel economy and more availability of parts. When I realized that I was most likely going to finance my purchase, I started to take a second look at KTM bikes. I originally crossed them off the list because I wasn't a seasoned rider and didn't want to be "that guy" with the KTM that look like he was just learning how to ride. Well I am re-learning since its been over 15 years since I've ridden. Now I have done plenty of mountain biking in the meantime - so I am no stranger to two wheels + off road. This brings me to the KTM 500 EXC and the KTM 690 Enduro, I know all the specs of both bikes and I know how they are in a performance class well above the others. But there are some things that these bikes don't have that are a concern of mine. I need my dual sport to be somewhat light. Everybody says how maneuverable the DRZ400 but they say the KTM 690 is a big heavy bike. But its only 10-20 ibs heavier! I also need to have second rider pegs so I can take my wife out on a slow ride occasionally. This, I am told, is not an option on the KTM 500 EXC. Lastly, I want to be able to load my camera gear for the minority of the time that I will be shooting photography in the wild. In this scenario, I am not looking to go blazing through the desert at neck breaking speeds. I just would like to show up on my scene without having to hike my gear in. I want the flexibility that a dual sport provides, in terms of route. I used to ride a KDX250 2 stroke a lot back in the day. And that was a heavy bike. I also briefly had a CBR 600 F4 (Which reminded me that I am not cut out for extensive highway riding). I thought the KTM 690 would be a great option but now I am confused - so many pro/cons - I was wondering if I could have some input from this forum. To recap: this is my ignorant simplistic view of these 4 bikes: WR250R: Great off road and ok on road but lacks torque and expensive considering what little you get DRZ400S: Old design, carb'd, lots of torque - kind of like a honda accord - good at everything, not great at anything except being reliable. 500EXC: Every feature geared towards maximizing fun! Power, light weight, great shocks, EFI - but no foot pegs! 690Enduro: Every feature I want, but the heaviest out of the bunch. Shocks not as good as 500EXC but perhaps better than the WR250R and definitely better than the DRZ. Me: 200 lb, intermediate, 40 yr od rider. I want to eventually do some long distance rides. I want to explore the desert and mountains of California. Thanks QBizzy
