Great Radiator Guard
Installed on my 2017 Enduro 690. Install was easy for the most part. Although, I didn't have to move my horn like the instructions stated. Not sure if that's because it's a 2017 or not. Haven't dropped the bike yet so can't speak to performance but it feels sturdy and I feel better knowing it's installed.
A "need to have" for the 690
Fit and finish of these guards is excellent, I'm really impressed. The only confusing part of the install was how the horn is relocated, but I just left that step until the end and made up my own spot for it. Oh, and it helps to have a piece of longer tubing on hand for the radiator cap breather. Mine was too short to have the extra protection around it so I had to cut a new longer hose (not hte guards' fault, just the result of more metal in that spot
works good tried it out this weekend a few times dropping my bike in some rock bed creeks on 4x4 jeep crawling trails at hidden falls adventure park install instructions are not good at all but if you have any knowledge of wrenching on anything you can figure it out I do recommend this for every 690 I have had to replace the radiator 550$
Provides excellent protection from lateral impacts to the radiator. The radiator on the 690 is vulnerable without this guard.
It fits 'ok'. Wouldnt really recommend.
I'm a mechanic of 23 years. These instructions are woeful. They make use of photos to show how to orientate and fit the bracketry. The photos are blurred, grainy, black and white and totally indecipherable. Hopeless. Anyway, got it all fitted. Says to use some originsl bolts, and supplies others. The original bolts arent long rnough to take up another new bracket aswell so hold on by a thread or two. The new bolts have 20 threads passed the anchor nut... The radiator plastic shrouds need to be trimmed a fair bit in the upper outer corners- no mention of that in the instructions, and the outer cowls niw are flexed out and dont sit snug against the radiator so flap around at highway speeds. All in all, a simple kit that has terrible instructions, incorrect hardware and is far from factory quality and finish. My brand new 2016 KTM690 Enduro R now has radiator protection however i feel ive fitted a shoddy, sub standard kit to it.
Hey Brad, that's a total bummer - if you want to send it back I can call up KTM North America, get you a refund and then we can get you something else to protect your radiator. The Cox guards are very high quality. Totally understand if it's not worth the hassle to remove and re-install, and sorry to hear KTM's quality was lacking on this part.
