Orange like this you mean ?
Like it matters that much ...
He will have it days ...
Lets just have a thread to guess how much fuel he will actually put into it before he sells it ....
KTM Orange and Black scheme but in negative IYSWIM? So mainly orange with black frame etc.
Hmm yes, I like it, you should do that
Candy apple orange, like the old zx6r
I vote for orange, but am not sure with the orange frame.
In the event you dont go for that, then its white (for no reason other than its makes the bike look even lighter to me)
Just been out for an hour on the 690... If you're already now sitting there thinking "seen all this before.." then you may as well jump out of the topic, because yes, it's the same.
Best bike ever.. Hell yes...
Any regrets.... Well, only the fact i sold it in the first place.
Took mostly the roads i know pretty well, first time on the bike in 4 months+ and the roads still had some damp bits on them, so wasn't exactly walloping it and sticking my knee down. But DAMN there's a lot of fun to be had on a motorbike, you (well me anyway) soon forget just the power and grunt they're capable of with ease... Gear, gear, pinned, pinned... more gears, more pinned.... Just great stuff.
I had a lot of questions on the ride to ask myself "what mods does it need?"
The list was
1. Puig screen for trackdays
2. Evotech radiator guard
3. Leo Vince exhaust
4. Wilbers/Nitron rear shock.
5. Kevs O2 sensor mod
1. Puig screen for trackdays - Maybe
2. Evotech radiator guard - Yes
3. Leo Vince exhaust - No
4. Wilbers/Nitron rear shock. - YES
5. Kevs O2 sensor mod -No
The bike does get a bit weavy due to the soft back end, more so than i recall/remember with the stock shock. But apart from that, it's just great.
Really good to hear this. I just about cleaned the winter dirt off my tyre on the ride home, just a tiny chicken strip left.... It is just great fun!
I completely missed dry roads this week as had to use four wheels yesterday. At leasr is was bright and sunny when I cleaned the fucking thing today!
Do it in white, with some orange bling - it's really the only bike you can bling up and it looks good.
I'm going to have to get one at some point, I might have a look what's around.
How much does a decent one cost in the UK?
