Adjusting the steering stops on KTM 690 Enduro

On fresh-from-the dealer bikes steering stops are very limiting, hence turning radius is very large. It is on of the first things owners should adjust. 

There is is a bolt on each side of lower triple clamp, preventing forks and triple clamps from hitting the frame or radiator when handlebars are moved all the way to the left or to the right. On new bikes, these bolts are sticking out too much. 

It is very easy to adjust steering stops - just loose the nut, tighten the bolt and re-tighten the nut. Rotate the handlebars to make sure forks or triple clamps are not hitting the frame or radiator. 

It is that easy. This should significantly reduce turning radius of the bike. 

Here is one before-and-after photo.

Weather was great and bikes were flawless. Here are some impressions about Mosko Moto Scout 25 duffle bag and Moto Skiveez Adventure undergarment I used on this trip.

I installed steering stabilizer on my 2016. KTM 690 Enduro for two reasons. First, I liked an idea of stabilizer support during fast rides over rocky terrain. Next, I always felt front of 690 is 'too light' on pavement, with off-road tires on. higher bars were added benefit.
