Replacement for weak OEM upper and lower tank bolts.
KTM 690 Enduro/Enduro R/SMC suffer from known and documented problem with weak upper subframe (tank) bolts. This kit minimizes chance of failure of upper subframe (tank) bolts, by preventing free play in lower tank joint and by improving quality and design of upper tank joint.
Upper bolt caps (qty. 2) are made of AISI 4140 steel, heat treated (for added strength) then zinc coated (rust protection). That makes them virtually indestructible and much stronger than any stainless steel bolt cap. Size of the head is standard – 27 mm, same as front axle nut. There is M6 threaded hole for OEM bolt holding plastic fairing. Bolt cap is designed to be slim so plastic fairing is not sticking out more then it does when OEM upper bolt is used.
Upper bolts (qty. 2 + optional 2) are 12.9 machine bolts, zinc coated. These are much stronger then OEM upper tank bolts. 25 mm long, so 15 mm is threaded into the bolt cap, when properly torqued. NOTE: in kits for 2014-on bikes additional button head bolts are provided - those are for Husqvarna 701 bikes.
Lower bushings (qty. 2) are made of strong plastic - polyamide with molybdenum, much stronger then OEM rubber lower bushings, yet gentle enough to be in close contact with plastic tank (rubber OEM upper bushings are kept, because completely rigid tank-frame connection wont be a good thing). Slightly different size, so they fit better.
Sleeve (qty. 1) is made of AISI 304 stainless steel, without internal thread.
Lower bolt(qty. 1) design is only difference between kit for 2008-2013 and 2014-on bikes. For 2008-2013 bikes high quality M8x140 allen head 12.9 zinc coated bolt is provided. For 2014-on bikes custom M8x155 countersunk 10.9 zinc coated bolt is provided.
Washers (qty. 1) are standard large M8 steel zinc coated washers and nut (qty. 1) is standard M8 steel zinc coated safety nut.
Excellent fitment super easy to fit and can tell they are an upgrade on factory bolt and bushing
Super fast delivery 6 days to ship across the world to New Zealand

Way better than the factory set up.
Perfect. Installed easily.
I need to replace the upper tank bushings though, as mine were completely crumbling apart.

If you travel with a good amount of gear this will keep everything straight and level with the tail of the bike.

Bolt Kit with Rade Aux Tank Installed on 690
If tank installed, remove small airbox via 2 nuts, uncouple gas quick fitting, cut zip ties holding lower fuel line, unscrew petcock affixing bolt, now tank can easily rotate to install Perun excellent bolt kit. Job is very easy! Thanks Nikola!

Won’t work on 2023 701
Doesn’t fit 2023 701.
Exhaust bolts to the same spot on the lower mounting point
It does fit on 2023. I have it.
And it is correct, exhaust bolts to the same spot as lower bolt. That is the difference between 2008-2013 and 2014+ kits.
