Rally Raid Billet KTM 690 Enduro/690 SMC Brake Lever
Probably the strongest part of the motorcycle, the Rally Raid Aircraft-spec alloy replacement lever for the KTM 690 Enduro or SMC is not to be taken lightly. The lever incorporates twin bearings for smooth opperation and has both a mount for a brake saver and a stock EXC Tip. If you broke your lever in a crash and never want to replace another one, then this is the lever for you.
Rally Raid's KTM 950/990 Adventure Dakar Style Windscreen
Another great item from Rally Raid that we would like to introduce is the KTM 950/990 Adventure Dakar Style Windscreen. Smaller and solid in design you won’t have to modify anything on your machine for this simple conversion. When it’s time to go on that long trip simply swap your stock or over-sized KTM windscreen back and you are good to go. Available in Orange, Black and Carbon Fiber to satisfy even the most finicky taste buds.
GPR’s new KTM RC8/RC8R V4 Steering Damper
GPR’s new KTM RC8/RC8R V4 Steering Damper has been put on a diet. Slimmer and more compact then their previous ventures this damper won both the AMA Daytona Sportbike Championshop and the Isle of Man TT. That's good enough for us.
KTM Thermostat Switch Upgrade
Live in a warm climate? Rally Raid has provided KTMtwins with a Thermostat Switch which turns your stock fan on at a temp of 190.4F/88C instead of the stock 221F/105C. Available for all models from the LC8 to the 690.
 
Techmount Handlebar Mount
 
Techmount has redesigned their GPS/Cell Phone Handlebar Mount. It is smaller more compact and less prone to breakage. If you like having your cell phone,GPS or MP3 Player close and readily available then you may want to consider this trick piece.

Outrider Journal Set to launch
Those of us who live and breathe Adventure are about to be satisfied - the premiere issue of Outrider Journal is set to mail on March 1st. We've known the Publisher Jason Black for over a decade, and have been following his writing in Motorcyclist and Sport Rider for almost 20 years (welcome aboard, old man). With the premier issue featuring a long-overdue interview with Jonah Street and promised contributions from Dexter Ford, it's a must read. And based on the photograpy in the sneek peak, a definite contendor on the coffee table.
