I bought a 2012 duke690 in April this year and I have to tell you I am impressed, more that impressed. I took it on the track twice too and had fun.

I have a couple of questions.

Does anyone know of a quick throttle kit, or something of sorts? The standard throttle is way too long.

My bike is not the R model and while I find the front suspension bearable the rear is too, well I'm not 100% sure because I can't adjust if to be sure, but I think the rebound is too fast. Has anyone swapped out the rear shock for something better? If so, what did you get?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum @Antkiller

Did you end up finding a throttle kit for you 690?

Thanks for all the replies/ links.. I will be sure to follow up on the throttle kit.
DustyDan, I didn't get it yet. I've been too busy with work. The bike is in the shop at the moment getting the racing kit installed.

Will post pics later

im also looking for the throttle kit ... our 390 is wayyy to long ... as the power band is near 70% of the throttle ... it is uncomfortable to twist way down and it look silly ...
