Thanks Biped!

The values on my TuneECU are with everything connected. Only with the computer connected.

The values you wrote are also for the 2011 models?

The values are from '08 to '11, I believe '12 and on may be different. Make sure you read the shop manual before adjusting as you can bugger things up if done wrong.

2008 KTM 690E - complete shutdown

previouisly posted elsewhere... looking for enlightenment.

Accelerating through a left turn in town, bike completely shuts down.... no power at all.; did not accidentally hit kill switch; battery wiring did not look disconnected. would not respond at all to turning of the key
I waited for about 10 minutes --> fired up with a "FI - bat" error (I believe it said) with tachometer showing redline and clock reset. Made it home (1/2 mile) and parked it.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for the input.

2011 values are different to other years. I don't have them available, but will try find them.

Sounds like a bad earth. Have you checked the earth on the right hand (in)side of the frame just forward of the battery? Unfasten it, clean it up and retighten then go for another ride. Actually disconnect the wires going to the battery, clean up all the connections and refit. I would get some ACF50 and paint the stuff on as many connections around the bike as you can find. Chances are if one connection is feeling a bit old, the rest are too?

All earth points on the 690 have under coat on them there is about 6 earth points simply disconnect sand off under coat and reinstall earth ,

Another possibility is the fuel pump is starting to fail. See FI issues.

Got the new fan switch and bash plate installed, but still waiting on a number of other parts to come in (kick stand cutout, etc) and so I've got time to do a couple of other "bomb proofing" things. I've read there are something like 6 frame grounds on the 690. Does anyone have pictures of where they all are located or a frame diagram that shows all of them? I'd be happy to photograph all of them freshly scuffed in location IF I knew where they all were...


Thanks,


Lee...

1. Motor/starter motor to frame, braided line
2. Battery to frame. (-) on battery
3. Regulator rectifier to frame. (2x green wires).

What I did was run a wire from regulator rectifier to battery - terminal. that way you know you will always have a good ground for charging.
You can either take the green wires and splice them to a #6 wire (i think that is what i used) and run it to the battery, or put a ring terminal on the #6 (both ends) and just make a jumper from the battery (-) where the RR connects to the frame. I did not worry about the frame to motor ground.

what do you guys think about this rack? we fabbed this up custom made of 1/2 round bar.

First we made just the top rack. I am about to take a 10 day adventure on the tat and decided some side bags would be nice. I choose to use pelican 1500's. I wanted to order the rack from happy trails, but they were 2 month's back order, which they neglected to tell me when i ordered. So we finished this rack saturday, just in time for me to leave wednesday.

I am happy with it so far, kinda sucks its welded to the top rack, but in the short time we had it was the easiiest way to do this. so this will just be my traveling rack, i will fab up another top rack when i get back.

Just finished the break-in oil change on my 2012.

Anyone else run into this? I ordered the filters from the KTM dealer (I live in Newfoundland with no local dealer...I have to take a 16 hour ferry to get the the nearest dealer). The box for the short filter said 75038046100, but the number stamped on the filter itself was 75038046101. The number on the short filter I removed said 75038046100.

They look identical (open on both ends... unlike the closed on one end for the 2011 and below filters).

I did some online searching, but couldn't find anything other than a post (from this thread) from Muffinman indicating he removed a 75038046101 from his bike and installed a 75038046100 http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=6890

Any advice here?

Thanks

Solid bar or tube?

I also used Pelicans, although mine are 1550s.

I have a KTM luggage rack, and I chose the Happy Trails mounting hardware. Mine are flush with the top of the seat, which makes packing additional gear on top easy. Yours look a bit low to me, and I worry that you might have ground-clearance issues.

I think the clearance on those pelicans is comparable to any other hard bags you might buy...

16 hours to the nearest dealer

I noticed the same thing while doing an oil change last year. The number on the box was 75038046100 but the short filter had 75038046101 stamped. On the oil filter service kit that I bought a few months later the short filter had the correct part number (75038046100).

The filters are exactly the same so no need to worry. Maybe they just printed the first batch with wrong number.
