GSP.......Thanks for posting the links to Amazon oil filters.......I figured that Amazon had the best prices, so i went ahead and ordered.....Only to find out that my Dealer in Houston sells them for $8.00............My fault for not shopping

McNut...is right in his description of the different settings........You don't turn on any more power like adding a Turbo or NOxide......It feels different because the throttle is opened different......Unless you want the bike hitting like it's a KX500 two stroke, "trust me, I know"......Setting 3 or standard, is fine and where mine is set........

Mark.......I sent you a PM concerning this........But I thought I'd post this here for others that might be interested in your thoughts on these lights...
.
.
Mark,..........saw your post concerning the ( MM10 ) Mondo Moto auxilliary lights.....Have read some reviews on ADV.....
.
Would really like to hear your take on these lights. I'm Setting up a 2014 690 also for a June N to S ride of the UT-BDR.....RustyShovel and I were the first two to get the new 14's here in Houston, and are slowly decking them out to our likes..........The 14's do have a better light output than previous models....But still not perfect.
.
( You've used the MM10's before and like them ? )....... I have bought other brands in the past, that really didn't make a significant improvement....Are these worthy for the 690..?
.
.......Thanks,...DrBlackbird

Story-Time / Re: Short Ride with two 2014 KTM 690 Enduro R's
« on: February 21, 2014, 09:14:31 pm »
Even a "Short Ride" on these bikes is a Dream........Yep,...Our "Fearless Leader" did good out in the Swamps of Houston......I don't think I have any of him with his bike....I'm glad he came with a Air-Hawk seat, otherwise, it was difficult to tell the bikes apart........
.
One thing I've noticed,....These bikes are hard to get clean....with the trellis frame n all.......
.
We had a good time christening our over priced dirt-bikes...........I'm thinking that I'm really going to like this bike........Thanks KTM.

Introductions / A new 2014 690 in Katy TX
« on: February 17, 2014, 10:12:55 am »
What a bike this is.......
.

.
Had a plan, I decided to be a "Match Maker"...I introduced and left Two of my bikes alone in the garage one night, one thing led to another and they had a Healthy 300lb Son.....The Parents are: ( 04' KLR 650 + 03' 2 stroke KX500)....The new Katoom is almost as comfortable as the KLR, and by George, almost as powerful as the fire breathing KX500.......The "Best of Both Worlds"
.
Now I'm in the process of dusting off and selling the Parents.....Hadn't rode either one, in quite awhile......

Same weekend as the Dual Sport Eureka Springs ride.....40mi south of E.S.
.
Easy Dual Sport up in E.S......or....Single track and two track in White Rock 40 miles south......
.
Or if you're feelin frisky, Click your 690 into it's "SMC Mode" and get out on the Infamous "Pig Trail" or other great Ark roads...
