I had a similar fall on my '11, shredded the shifter, left peg and muffler. No tranny issues.

Bad part is it is very difficult, or near impossible to shift out of 5/6 down to 3/4. Looking at the fiche appears there are 3 different splines so he's thinking he bent the fork for 3/4 being in 4th at the time.

I've NEVER heard of that on these bikes and am a bit disappointed if a fall on a gravel road can do that much damage, but don't see what else it could be.

Wondering if anyone has heard of similar?

Bike is a 2012 R with 2k miles.....

Nice peg!!!


A bit baffled on how the damage could have been done. Lever is tucked up pretty well, his oversized pegs folded up nicely and dinged the rearset, but don't see how forces could have either pushed the shift shaft in, or pushed the shift lever up or down enough to bend something in the tranny. I've taco'd many a shift lever on my 530 without any internal damage.

...but, nothing to be done about it I suppose, eliminate the simple stuff, then split the cases.

Pull the shift lever off, it's possible that he stripped the splines and the lever isn't moving the shift shaft far enough.

It's also possible that the shifter shaft is bent, and preventing it from moving far enough to make the shift.

KTM 690 idle doesnt run after cleaning

Hello, I have problem with my KTM 690R 2009. KTM doesnt run to idle after Karcher pressure cleaning. It sometimes starts and goes with turning the throttle but stops to idle. FI on speedometer doesnt flash. It is OK after an hour. Do You have any experience? Thank You. Sorry for my english

You could be getting water under the spark plug cap , or you have bad connection , Check as many of the connection as you can , check spark plug lead and make sure the spark plug cap is connected firmly

I was just told that you have to be careful washing around the TPS sensor they are not sealed that well.

The 690RR pegs are nice but I like the Fastway Adventures even more.

there is a sensor behind the dash that has a rubber tube about 2" long. I think it is barometric pressure? I have hear getting water in this tube can make the bike run like shite. Also, if you think there is water in the tube.. be careful removing the water. forcing it up into the sensor can rune the sensor all together.

Changed the fuel filter yesterday (2012 Enduro R). Apparently KTM went from Mahle KL 15 to Mahle KL 97 in 2011/2012.

KL 15 is readily available everywhere for a couple of euros so I couldn't be bothered to hunt for KL 97 which seems to be a Ducati-specific filter.
The filter part looks to be exactly identical

Good to know. I'm probably going to be shopping for a 2012 or 2013 soon and hope I can get one for 9,000 or a little above.
