Maybe the heat and the angle of the filter made the oil drip out of the filter.
So who was it that was responsible for the excess oil in the filter?

Sorry, was just teasing you because I wasn't sure how an air filter could be revolutionary different than other bikes. You are correct in that it hangs down instead of being stretched over the airbox. However, my 09 FE450 husaberg sometimes puddles some oil under the filter if the filter is new or a little too oiled. Not the end of the world and I wouldnt worry too much about it unless your airbox is filling with oil.

I've seen them new on shelves in dealers leaking oil on the floor straight from the packaging.

I've got some Ipone Air Filter Oil that comes in a spray and is as sticky as a sticky thing. That stuff will never drip, you could paper walls with it.

Has anyone recently ordered a CA Cycleworks fuel pump, for a newer 690? I have a 2014.

When I go to the site, I see this: http://ca-cycleworks.com/products/fu...bs/fp-hus-5680
Quote:
3b. If a 4 bolt square flange plate:
- Hose Length of your choice:
-6.5" with 8mm ends
-8" with 5/16"on pump side & 1/4" on filter side or
- 4" with 5/16" ends
What hose length would I need? Or could I just order longer and trim to fit? I have not yet pulled anything from my stock tank/pump so I haven't seen what I have inside my tank.

Or maybe it is best to select the "just send me everything" option on the drop down menu for just $15 more.

Thanks.

I recently saw a new 690 and noticed how the turn sigs are mounted in a differentl location-on a metal mount instead of the headlight housing. Presents an interesting opportunity, with some creative modifications to create a mount that would support the sigs and an offroad or running light. Any thoughts?

Yep, BigDog did just that and inspired me to mount my ADVMonster Model 60's like this. Just cut some slots and holes into 1/8" thick 1"x1" angle aluminum, but will probably upgrade to 1/8" thick SS bar (1" wide). Hole to mount light, and slot to slip in between the nut and the factory stalk mount.

This is standard (that dirt is in front section of filter more than rear section [ round or square foam filter]).

A bit of oil is too (over saturation).

I used No Toil treatment for foam filters a few years ago and ziplock-bagged an extra filter after letting the filter "gas-off" for about 1/2 hour. When I went to use the filter, it had delaminated on every glued joint (450 two layer foam filter)....wrecked the filter.

So............let it breathe before you smother it in a baggie.....the solvents can ruin adhesives

Dirty
Here's how things played out yesterday-
Fill-up was at 130 miles no Fuel light yet. It took 2.54 gallons. It was mostly very fast dirt roads.

The next 150 miles was much more technical. We made it up into tight trees and even lost the 2-track a few times. My Ginger tossed me to the ground 3 times. The temp was at full bars and fan running for about 50 miles worth of that. I got the bike to pop quite a bit while that hot. To be expected. I even had one flame out. Totally by surprise. I hit a big G-out and the bike just went dark. I looked and the kill switch was on ok. I just came to a stop then restarted. ( That was before getting the bike hot)
The Low Fuel light came on right at 120 miles. I opened up the petcock from the Safari tank and kept on riding. The light of course cleared.

I took a quick look at the pod air filter. Seems to be pretty clean. Some sagebrush debris from the drops. Not much dust on the outer filter.


One thing I learned from the ride. This bike is not near as nimble as my 525. I just have to be careful where I take her.

Both my Triumph and KTM have a build-up under the sprocket guard. So unless you see an oil drip, I'd say it was chain lube and dirt. Scrape it off and don't worry about it. One thing to help minimize it is to oil/wax the chain just after a ride, rather than just before.

Doubt it's a leak. You would have oil all over. Not sure why you need loctite on the counter shaft nut.... There should be a splined washer behind the nut that you bend into the flat spot on the nut.

Good point: (obviously not a 690, but this should give you the idea...)
