I have my adjuster turned all the way up on my 950 to get the light level correct and the projector housing is less than a mm away from the front plastic. (you could cut out the back of the reflector to allow more room and epoxy mount the projector.)
2. Vibration resistance. I'm not too comfortable with the aftermarket projector install procedure to take it out and beat the crap out of it on a nasty trail. It might be ok on the 950 but, I beat the crap out of my 690 and don't think it will withstand the abuse. (you could use some epoxy and permanently mount it to the housing to solve this though.)

Blew the fuel pump on the GMC pickup yesterday. That's one change. I was so used to blow pumps on the 690 ...

That truck blew that pump at 450,000 km and 14 years later however ...

$250 for the pump. Injectors are $89. GMC makes injectors and pumps that would fit a 690 ???

Don't even think of PMing me for any future help request about your Rubi FI just because I live in Turin...

690 VMC Sidecar

The 690 sidecar is nearly complete in the fab shop at Abbotts Farbrication,and all the works is nearly done.An new airbox was fabricated to hold the UniFilter and the battery,the exhaust header was routed to the silencer and a mesh guard fitted,the car size radiator was mounted along with the header tank,and a neat VMC rad protector was water-jet cut from 3mm aluminium sheet to finish the whole thing off.
Next on the list is to complete the wiring harness connections,and get ready for the MOT test to get it road-legal.

Nice write up & vid- and cool work space you have there - we'd like to check out some of those other bikes in the stable sometime.

It's illogical to me that injector cleaning will make the difference given how well the bike runs as long as it's not hot. But I did it anyway.

I am curious for opinions on fuel pressure. In the first vid you can see some gas hit the floor but I'm mostly able to contain it. My thumb's not been calibrated to 55 psi -> should this firehose on me or does it seem right that I can stop it?

And for you who've been thinking of an injector cleaning it is quick and easy even for FI noob like me. I do wish I had access to ultrasonic that some of you like but since I have acetone and compressed air on hand that's what I used.

I'll take it out for a spin this afternoon - see what happens but don't think I've done anything helpful, just fooling around.

Here is the pressure vid - seems good enough?



Injector is right under the air box - disconnect electrics then out with the phillips head (butter - careful.)



Once removed you need a power source to open it if you are going to blow compressed air through it. I used a 12v battery from a drill.



You can hear the injector activate when you close the circuit.



I put it in some acetone then blew compressed air out.

I spent the week earning parts money in Sioux Falls SD. Nice town, fun people, good eats and drinks. They go big for Xmas - light show is downtown, surrounding the falls. Back last night, just before today. Thank you for the lots of good ideas, haven't tried any of them yet. Not a fan of shopping but after yesterday's fn mess at Sandy Hook, walking around anywhere with my 12 year old sounded lucky.

Sioux Falls SD cell photo - it's beyond the lights.

Could well be - it's a great lead. Have been reading alongat's thread from back in August with evening cocktail.

Digress - if you like such things, I highly recommend Herradura Reposado, fresh squeezed lime, Reed's ginger beer on rocks garnish with Jalapeño.

May indulge on your offer to lend a temp test swap r/r; going to be making slow progress for the next few weeks with travel and such. It appears an easy change, may be one of the parts I replace regardless as it seems known and prone.

btw - thanks for the book rec on John Boyd You ffs who like fighter pilots, unsung heroes, game changing strategic thinkers or brash ball busters might enjoy this too: "Why die all tensed up?"

Nice I can try that one eazy I swapped oem thermo for the 88c switch Quick to know if it's an issue, may be eating just enough amps to hook me.

Your problem sounds similar to problems described in this FI thread. I replaced mine with the CA Cycleworks FP-HUS. Problem fixed. Many other 690 owners have reported good results with this pump and it is much cheaper than the OEM KTM pump.
I'm just going to order the CA pump right peace of mind plus r&r is such a gas. Thanks for the FI read - good stuff. I think I'm going to to rig up a pressure test on current pump. Bob or Crank wrote up some ideas a few pages back. Be interesting anyway. Maybe I'll get a geyser like the spilt filter show.

I'd say the valves but with the new switch my fan kicks on around the 5th bar of heat out of 8 and rarely goes over 6 bars even if stopped for a while.
Not going to rule that out - haven't checked the valves. I did the fan switch swap too, kicks in quick. Spent an August week in Montreal and can assure you that generally it's warmer down here Cuz is a jazz drum major at McGill - will be skiing CA with him week after next. Fantastic town (and country) you have there.

Thanks, I'm ok with words and pics it's fix that don't come ez Workspace has some sweat in it. City living gots its goods but land ain't one. Propped up under the party deck on my hill. Been meaning to take some pics and post in the bike shed thread.

Other bikes is good news ifn you're a 690 owner The only one in there that doesn't have a fix list is the Duc.

ABuck edit: just proofreading and noted you're an airhead. I'm posting sos there too - got some R80gspd improves in action. Spokes with drum is a toaser lwb '73 June build beauty.

Do any of you guys have the Euro rear fender part number, the one KTM Twins sells with the LED tail light? My dealer sent the wrong fender and I'm trying to get it worked out. THX
