It should look something like this!
NOTE* Be sure to grind off sharp edges on the clip nut that the plastic attaches to! We have seen multiple cases where a simple tip over can cause that sharp edge to puncture the radiator tank!
One of the easiest things to replace to save weight was the battery. The WPS lightweight lithium batteries are awesome! We have been selling them since they came out and have been the best performing & lasting battery! Ditching the old battery for this one will save about 5 lbs!!!
We also installed the KTM hard parts ABS Dongle so when we turn the ABS off it stays off, even after turning the bike off and back on again. It also enables you to switch to a "Bad Fuel" map setting if you find yourself putting some questionable fuel in the bike.
Seat Concepts is hands down the best looking, most comfortable, and best quality seat out there! The best part is that it ships as a complete seat so you literally just put it on! No tools required! Click Here for more info.
KTM Hard parts offers a really good radiator guard. It protects the tanks on the end and gives some impact protection as well.
Upgrading the stock headlight bulb with a Cyclops ADV sports LED bulb is a must! Super easy to install and such a vast improvement over the stock one. Well worth the money!

There are endless ways to build and modify a KTM 690 enduro. We set out to build one a little different. We wanted a bike versatile enough to handle both long adventures but more importantly, mashing the local single-track around our area! This meant taking a sort of "minimalist" approach to the build. We had three main objectives. Get the weight down as much as possible, making it more comfortable and able to carry luggage or fuel without being too bulky. From our previous experience building up KTM EXC's, we pretty much already knew what parts work good and which ones don't.
While we were bolting everything back together we installed the rear rack plate from Nomadic Racks. It is clean, simple, & very strong without being too overly heavy. It will allow for the attachment of any tail bag or RotoPax fuel cell in the future.
Getting rid of the big ole' tail light & blinkers that will inevitably get busted off is the next order of business. We did some research and found that KTM makes a "slim" tail section & light that they equip on their bikes sold in Europe so the fit is perfect! There was even enough room to install the flush mount blinkers from Sicass Racing. Those also plug right into the factory plugs on the bike. The more time you take lining up the blinkers & tucking in the wires under the fender, the better everything will look and last without having any pinching issues down the road.
