What's included with new bike, 2009?
« on: January 29, 2014, 01:36:52 pm »
Bought a 2009 690R from an out of state seller, I now have the bike and some take-offs (muffler, hand guards) but....
none of the dealer delivered extras. Not a big deal but looking to refresh his memory a little so that he might look a little harder.

So what did you receive with your bike (manuals, tools, handholds etc.)?   ???

Here is what I believe came with new 690's:

2 ea keys & key card
Owners Manual (which can be downloaded) & Delivery Certificate
Tool Kit
Frame Guards to go in place of passenger peg mounts if removed
Passenger grab handles & mounting hardware

Sound about right?
I don't want to press the PO for items not part of new bike delivery.

Thanks for the reply, I was beginning to think none of the forum members were owners from new!

LOL nope I'm a wanna be yuppy scum who bought new!  Its unreal how hard these bikes are to find. Either the dealers I called were sold out or they simply couldn't get them. I guess KTM has this thing where they require dealers to buy certain bikes in order to receive other bikes like the 690. So it was a bit of a snipe hunt at first, but fortunately I found mine in Carson City  ;D

Hey Bruce,

The 2014 comes with two sets of keys and a coded key card (for having additional keys cut).

A nice zipper folder:



Inside the folder is the manual, a KTM clothing catalog, and a tool kit:



It also contained the "block off" plates in case you don't want passenger pegs.  **Make sure you ask for your pegs**  They're not cheap, and you may want them if you pair up with someone on a backcountry ride.  Sure it sucks to ride 2-up, but it sucks even more if your buddy's bike breaks down and you don't have a second set of pegs.  My dealer neither installed nor mentioned them until I called him on it.

Yeah, need to be sure you receive everything you paid for.

Rusty, did you get the rear fender handholds, were they installed already? Looks like they will be shod with MT21s for the US market.

Yes, I DID get the rear fender handholds (installed)--but again, I had to ASK for them.  The dealer rationalized not initially installing them by saying that some buyers don't like them.  For my purposes, I intend to install a rack and would rather not drill the fender myself.  Plus, until I decide with rack to go with (and I'm leaning toward the "Burro" rack), I can use the hand guards to tie down my lunchbox.

And, yes, my bike came with MT21's.

That's what I thought. I can think of only 3 reasons these accessories, which are shipped with the bike, are often not automatically included are:
1) Takes a little labor to install if requested.
2) Can be carried as inventory and possible resold as parts/accessories later.
3) Lack of communication between the folks doing the pre delivery assembly/inspection and the sales staff.

In any event you paid for them so ask your dealer to include them installed or not (at your discretion). I would hope a good customer oriented dealer would ask before automatically installing, the handholds add to the height and result in drilled holes in the fender (personally I would ask for the parts but pass on the install).

Congratulations to those receiving new bikes!
