3-Wheeler 690 Fun!!

We are currently working with Torque Racing on a customers very special machine.
It is a brand-new EML chassis that has been specifically designed to accept the KTM 690 Enduro engine,and we are currently working on manufacturing a new airbox,and silencer and radiator mountings to finish it off.
It had Reiger shocks all round,and the workmanship on the chassis is fantastic.
It will become a road-legal enduro machine,and I would love to have a go in it!!!

I have learned over time that if someone has already taken the time to make a viable solution then it is often worth the cost of buying it vs the cost and time of creating your own solution. If there is no existing solution or the existing solution can be improved upon then its worth the effort.

So after all that #&*@# , simply cut wires to stand above connector near shock, solder in 2.2 K ohms between Pink and Black, heat shrink it, then isolate and heat shrink off the blue so it cant short....and Bobs your uncle ....
Most of us have used 2.2K ohm 1/4 watt resistor when disabling most any sensor/control. Seems to work well.

Gave up on this POS. Bought an Africa Twin, and as soon as I get back to Canada in July, mine's for sale.

Excellent attempt KTM, but you shit the bed on waaaaaay too many issues to attempt to fix. Still love my 450 EXC.

After owning a 950 the list of 'issues' for the 690, as well as the time it takes to fix them is ridiculously lower

To each's own! Good luck.

What I need now is content.

Links to posts that have valuable content about mods, explanations of procedures, maintenance, known issues, etc. I'll polish the wiki categories and layout a bit this weekend and will start adding content as we find it.

For now I've created a new thread so we don't spam this one with links to posts/data to be added to the wiki.

Wiki Thread

Oh, does anyone have a Logo we can use that isn't copyrighted or something? I'm also go to see if I can get some sort of skin for the wiki pages.

Good? How does this help the thread? What useful information did you share?
