I ordered a new 40T OEM Sprocket from the dealer P/N 75010051040. Came with the KTM P/N and barcode sticker on it, but it is a PBR Sprocket and in their packaging. Are they an OEM for KTM?

I've never seen a part from another manufacturer with a KTM P/N sticker just added to it so I am curious.

I'm planning on picking up a rear wheel lift at cycle gear today.
What size is the thread for the spools on the swing arm?

Sent from outside my mind.

Hi John, that's a nifty bit to have in the bike toolkit, had not seen that before until this thread, and orange makes it near irresistible.

I bought my NAPA set (6 sizes for $12) a year ago for my Husaberg FE and they didn't have them in blue

Finally swapped out my Leo V can for a FMF Q4. The Q4 is definitely more quiet so I'm happier.

My 2010 had the Q4. The 2008 I'm on now has the LeoV. The Q4 has amazing sound and quality. I would switch in a second.

Akro shields with a q4?!

Dropped my bike a few times today and really wished I had something to grab to lift it. Are the rear grab bars substantial enough to lift the bike? Mine are still in the bag.

The OEM ones fell off.

Yup, I drag mine around all the time with them.

Thanks, Noah. That's a good, practical suggestion. If it can be mounted high enough and protected from the elements, I'll think about doing that.

Do you happen to have a pic?

Hope all is well with the tour.

Went riding today and dropped the bike a few times. When trying to restart it was fickle. Would not start in gear at all! It even took about 30 seconds to get it started in neutral. I am new to fuel injection so I tried giving it a little throttle to start it but it popped back through the throttle body or something under the seat. I have the full akrapovic exhaust, k&n air filter and evo1 airbox lid with the evo1 map. Do I need a custom map? I thought the evo1 map was supposed to be perfect for my setup but it seems to be a little lean across the board. I did not oil the filter as they come preoiled so should I wash it and try to oil it? I out of ideas...

Discovered the low fuel light on my new-to-me '08 690 Enduro isn't working. It did work for a bit, so this leaves me in the fun situation of guessing when gas is low. Amusingly, this started before I ever even dropped it.

I've not yet traced out the wiring to determine if it's just the one light, the sensor itself, or something else entirely.

Anyone have to deal with this?

This might be a dumb question, but did you turn the ignition off and then back on before trying to restart it? I think the rollover switch may have something to do with your situation, and I want to say that cycling the ignition might reset that, but I'm just guessing.

Can't provide any insight to your post but I had the same issues on my '12 690 yesterday, minus the dropping bike bit . I was riding some very greasy clay forest trails, plenty of steep accents and descents in 2nd and 3rd gear, slowish riding, and every time I stalled or turned the bike off it would be very hard to start with constant backfiring. If I let it cool, it didn't seem to be too much of an issue. My bike is completely stock as far as exhaust, air box and mapping. Anyone have any ideas .

Personally I tried turning the bike off completely, back on, kicking it over. Nothing but backfiring and wouldn't start no matter how much I kept turning it over. Tried turning it on, rolling the throttle on and off slowly, turn it off, back on and kick it over, nothing but constant backfiring. I tried all combos but nothing seemed to truly solve it.

Not for me, but for palmstate I would check that. I've had the throttle body blow off before, and when it was backfiring it had the same sound to it.

It seemed to be related to bike temp. I have he RR uk water temp sensor so the fan was constantly kicking in on the slow sections. Once we got through the faster gravel and a break for a beer and steak sandwich for lunch it was fine and got me home no worries.
