Factory Pro 690/701 Shift Kit


Product Description

Let's face it, the 690 and 701 are great bikes, but the transmissions shift like garbage. The idea is that when you nudge the shifter it should actually go into the next gear. False neutrals in the upper gears and a generally notchy feel to them does't exactly inspire confidence either. 

  • Virtually eliminate missed shifts and false neutrals. Quicker shifts.
  • The 690 has lazy shift action. Not what you want when Super Motard racing or jumping those doubles or splitting that lane.
  • The stock shifting, on the KTM 690, can be sketchy under even recreational use. 
  • Some individual bikes, more than others, have a propensity for false neutrals and missed shifts in critical situations.
  • Installation: About 1-2 hours - no case splitting required. The clutch basket doesn't even have to be removed.
  • Available with Steel or Hybrid Ceramic Microbearing

  1. Must do mod!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th May 2018

    Install on my 2018 701 supermoto. Before shifting was very CLUNKY feeling and I had numerous missed shifts and false neutrals. I was starting to question buying this bike. Installed this kit and OMG what a difference. I am so happy with the way it performs now. Gearbox feels very smooth and I haven't missed a shift yet.

    This shift kit has a stiffer spring (which is annoying to install!!!) Good thing it's worth it! With the ceramic bearing, the spring pulls the shift cleanly into position even if you don't do a good job of shifting. It won't cure what feels like a crunchy gearbox, but the shifts are positive and clean.

  3. A real must have 5 Star Review

    Had 2 complaints with my new SM. Exhaust was too hot and quiet and the dang false neutrals. Was so exited to see this fix when I came to this website. The shifts are so crisp now its unbelievable. If money was tight this would be my first upgrade for sure.

  4. Great Upgrade for 690 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th May 2017

    I've been wanting one of these for a while and finally pulled the trigger to install during my spring bike maintenance (riding season is finally here in Alaska).

    End result I'm totally blown away how much better my 690 shifts now. I can no longer get false neutrals going from 5th to 6th at highway speeds even trying to by barely shifting. Wish I had bought this a long time ago. All the shifts feel really solid on top of the false neutral problem being gone.

    The instructions factory pro have on their website aren't very good, but there's a helpful video of another rider doing this install on Youtube that makes it super simple.

    If you're on the fence for this upgrade, do it. Definitely worth the cash.
