KTM 690 Enduro R Touring screen [765.08.065.000]

As far as I know the KTM powerparts screen is pretty much the only option for the 690. Yes the Basel kits and the like include a screen, but it's not really a comparable product since the powerparts screen is $50 and the Basel kit is...well thousands.

I would have preferred a taller screen, but I couldn't find any other bolt-on options besides the powerparts version.


The installation requires you to take off the whole headlight assembly and disconnect the indicators and headlight. Easy peasy.

Then comes the part where you need to pay attention. If you are sloppy with the template and marking / drilling the holes you may end up with holes that don't match the screen and you can also end up with a screen that's tilted to one side. There is very little to work with, the screen holes don't have much play so you better get it right the firs

Once installed there is a nice gap between the screen and the headlight mask. Makes cleaning a lot easier!


  1. How's the wind protection with the screen? What's it like at highway speed?

  2. I guess it's better than nothing but honestly the difference between having and not having one is not huge. Highway speeds is the only time you really notice it.
