Mine was warrenteed because of a crack. Let some dust in.

The clamp for the boot connecting the air box to the throttle body? That should not be sliding off. After a week of desert riding my uni filter was caked with dust on the outside but inside was totally dust free, so sounds like there is a problem somewhere. Just to ask the obvious, the filter has been oil treated right? They come already oiled so I am guessing yes. And those two tabs in the front of the airbox cover are sliding properly into the slots at the front of the air box. Hope you figure it out!

Not a hint of dust in mine since the change over to the RR. Loud as piss though.

Pulled the harness out this afternoon.... what a big wad of useless wires
Moving everything forward is going to be pretty slick and the hole where the battery and fuses sat is going to be a perfect spot for the pod filter. The intake runner is going to be about 12" long in that configuration. Ordered the ECU and a few related goodies this afternoon and ordering the AntiGravity battery tonight. This weekend, I hope to make a cardboard mock up of the battery tray/ECU bracket. I hope to also have a small pocket for the basic tool kit and some tire levers. Looks like I'll also have room for a much bigger fuel filter and an external fuel pressure regulator.

Progress

The intake runner is going to be tubular Alum and I'll weld a flange to it for the sensor. I also plan to make a wall to protect the filter and suck air from around the seat pan, which should also keep water from sloshing in. Like a baffle I guess. The filter won't be any lower than an EXC, so not worried about it. Anyway, my 390 berg is my nasty trail riding machine and it has a very high filter.

I own www.690rider.com and I thought I might start a Blog about the build and the prep for Mexico. My shakedown ride is a 3 hour endurance ice race in Wisconsin in January. I plan on running the ironman class and riding without stopping All the guys racing are usually on Motorcross or woods bikes with a tiny fuel tanks, the 690 will have 7 gallons Most of the riders are dirt trackers and very, very fast, so I need all the advantages I can get!

With luck I might even be close to 70 hp, which is great when you're swinging a 50# ice tire around.

make sure you do something to keep the filter from pulling the air from down low. the maintenance interval on the pod when I had the airbox fuel cell is what made me go back to the stock airbox....not that I like it and after geting the safari tank i built a tool box in the airbox place but the danm filter was clogged after 4 hours in the dez and i was too unskilled / lazy to make a baffle around the pod. with you moving it up and to the rear you should be in much better shape than i was.

you going to sell a kit for the loom?

you seem to have the same problem i do......hate the bike/love the bike

I have had the same problem. My boot/flange seemed to be mis-shaped so I have ordered a new one and I have been advised to use a wider hose clamp instead of the narrow std KTM part to assist with proper fitment.

clean speed engineering brake lever

hi folks,
With the clean speed engineering brake lever , how far down can you adjust the lever? I can't get it lower than flush with the footpeg. Is that normal? I'd like it to be slightly lower.
