only sliders I've found for the 690 have been made by R&G in the uk or chinese maybe fit maybe not (probably the similar situation for the 500). KTMtwins has the them for a decent price, but Im awaiting a backorder on a couple items :/

Threaded rod and skate board wheels work perfectly for axle sliders.

overboard on the sliders no?

Make sure to get a big camel back, I prefer the Leatt since they sponsor me
http://www.leatt.com/shop/hydration/...ion-packs.html

They also have the best neck brace in the business, and if you plan to go fast, plan to crash too (in the woods) I've witnessed others use the neck brace in a crash and has saved them, as well as myself. I also know of several others who've had high speed crashes, time spent in the hospital, intensive care etc. and the Leatt neck brace saves lives!

And if you decide that you want the lightest helmet on the market
https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/s...=suomy+mx+jump

This helmet is head and shoulders above the rest as they say, I love it and am working on my second one now, I crashed not long ago in some large rocks, I hit my head pretty hard as I landed directly on my head and the rock chipped and cracked this helmet, I was able to get up, shake it off and continue on with my race.

Send this guy a message if you have FB. He sent me a set of his custom sliders for my 450x. The fit and finish is top notch.

I second the awesomeness of leatt braces and hydration packs. Just wish they would give me a discount on another brace so I can have a dirt and street one.

No, they arent for dirt. I just happen to be one of those guys that rides a plated dirt bike on the street more than the dirt.

Multi purpose.. In theory, its just like a frame slider for a sportbike. It keeps the hard parts from touching the concrete. In this case, they are on the axle so the axle nut doesnt get ground down during a slide. It should also help the bike slide rather than grip and flip.

First service with a front and rear sprocket change.... 379.00. 1.8 hours for service and 1.2 hours for sprocket change.

Went from a 15/45 to a 13/50. Now it's geared like I would expect from a dirt bike.

I dont have a socket for the front axle, so I'll put that one on in a day or so. Other than this, a set of 17"wheels and maybe a steering dampener will be the only additional upgrades
The kickstand base, is simply awesome too, no more worries

KTM advice....

Radiator guards look like you could drive a tank over them.

The double take mirrors work really well. I can adjust them to easily see beyond my shoulders.

my current gearing is 15/45, and Im thinking of the running the smc 16/42 when I do the wheel change, but I'm curious on what most people run on their supermotos?
....I do want to be able to cruise 70mph without pegging it out
