@vizcarmbGot the 690 because its the only one available in the US
The reason I got it is that the regular 690 is the inky model offered here in the US. It also suits all my riding needs. I don't take it to the track and I mainly just commute and some occasional back roads. It has the right amount of power and gets about 48mpg for my semi agressive riding.
where did you get the service kit from?I actually did my 1st service yesterday. I bought the oil service kit, which contains 2 oil filters, 2 oil screens, gaskets, and 2 oil screen plugs. I was surprised how small the kit was. The only issue I had when doing the service was trying wipe off all the oil off the exhaust and engine. If you don't get all the oil off, the heat will just burn it off. I also only added about 1.7l of oil. You can add less because when I used the right amount like the manual stated it filled it up all the way to the top line
I bought it at KTMworld.com bought 2 at the price of 67 each plus shipping. I compared both ktm twins and ktm parts and ktmworld was the cheapest.where did you get the service kit from?
Yeah I found out the hard way before too when I started her up it started smoking and freaked me out. I thought the drain plug was loose but it was actually the oil that dripped on to the headers that was burning. So the next time I wrapped the headers with newspaper and a towel. you live and you learn
Do you have plans to change out the air filter to a K&N or...?
