All I broke on TAT is my right fibula at the top of the boot just outside of Green River, UT.  We also stayed on Sams route.  Sorry we missed ya'll.  My other three riders finished.  Also sprained my ankle really bad.  Happened on Aug 29th and still hurts.  Hope ya'lls ride went well.

Yep, got the twin air filter sock for gas cap.  Haven't tried filling up at a gas station yet, but filling with a can did not go well.  Overflows, backs up too easily.  Also got the upper and lower tank bolt upgrades, but haven't installed them yet.  Going to get KTM World in Cedartown, GA to do the suspension in a couple of weeks and will let them install when putting it back together.  Also got the Blackhawk tank bag, foam filter conversion installed, both short and long stainless steel oil filters (not installed yet) with magnetic washer for filter.    Oh, Cycleops H-4 LED CREE 3800 lumen high/low bulb that makes a world of difference.  front fender bag.   Tusk rear rack.

Mine has been delivered to the house.  Not home to put it on yet.  Will get home Saturday and try to put it on this weekend and let ya'll know what I think!

Just installed CJ Designs fuel filler and I'm gonna check and see if the filter sock will work with it.  The 2014 bike has it but he thinks it's mounted under the filler mount.  Have to look and see.  Also installed Tusk rear rack from rockymountainmcatv.  Nice and sturdy for $80.  Gonna put rotopax 1.75 gal gas on it.  Gonna start a blog at some point to keep folks updated on the ride and we can figure out where we will come across each other.  How are you navigating?  We are using GPSKevins gps files.  Hope we don't get into any trouble.  What tires are you starting with?  We are gonna start with MOTOZ Tractionator Desert H/T front and back on the 690's.  They don't make a 17" for the rear of the DR650's.

Have a 2014 and 2015 KTM 690 Enduro doing the TAT leaving August 15th.  What's gonna break and what spares should we take?  Looking at replacing and upgrading tank bolts.  Heard some bad things about the fuel pump.  Is it still a problem with the 14's and 15's??  Center stand from Lost Dog Products is in the mail to my house now.  It will aid in fixing stuff on the trail.  Has anyone had clutch issues with these bikes?  Our bikes have 3900 and 6800 miles on them at present time.   Any advice is welcome.  We will be starting with fresh rubber and fluids.

Not very good with electrical stuff.  Just got a 2015 Enduro R and looking hook my gps up so it will always run off the motorcycle power.  ACC1 always hot....don't really understand difference between that and the ACC2 "switched".  Does ACC2 need a switch between accessory to turn on/off so it doesn't drain battery or what?  Will ACC1 drain battery or is it only charged when bike is running or ignition on?  Hope someone can explain it in simple terms for me.  Will be wanting to hook gps up with cig receptor and also want to hook up heated grips (tusk brand) for the winter and also some chargers for phone/cameras and other junk.  Thanks for any help.  Randy

trooper 08, I will not be home for another week and a half so I can't get you the number off the box now.  You can find the part numbers on another thread either on 690 forum or look on KTMtalk.com.  Can't remember where I got the number.  Good luck.

Friend at Advance Auto ordered it for me last week.  Had it two days later.  Installed easily!  Great mod.  Looking for more easy stuff to do!!  This forum is awesome!

I got the switch from Advance Auto Parts for $40 and installed on my 690 a few days ago.  Works great.  Put a little Teflon tape around the threads and used the o-ring that came with it.  Great mod.  Rode 100+ miles in some nasty offroad jeep type roads and some black top.  Never went over 1 bar above half way.

Looks like it might hang down a little below the plate.

Is it any wider than stock in the middle where my butt will be most of the time?  I can't tell by your pictures.
