    I had some good results in reducing vibrations by adding:
    Rox Anti-Vibration Elite 2″ Pivot Risers
    Pro Grip 714 Dual Sport Grips
    BarkBusters handguards

    I installed the “Rox Anti-Vibration Elite 2″ Pivot Risers” first and took it for a ride, vibrations reduced by what felt like 10% but the ergonomics was much improved with the 2” higher bars.
    I then added the ‘Pro Grip 714 Dual Sport Grips’ they are softer, thicker then the original grips, I also added the barkbusters which I think act like bar end weights to reduce vibration further.
    Overall it feels like vibrations reduced by 60% at lower revs and 40% at higher revs.

    Hi Jaco

    How bad is the 690 compared to the 640?

    I rode a 640 around a petrol station carpark once and that was far enough!

    Thats right. Now there’s one bike I’d like to see an enduro or adventure version of.

    KTM 390 Adventure?
