690 clutch change

Anyone know of an aftermarket clutch pack & springs for the 690, mine's slipping badly or am I better off sticking with KTM parts? Part numbers would be useful if you have them, I believe EBC make a clutch kit for the 690 - anyone tried one yet?

Do the plates need soaking in oil overnight?

Any issues to be aware of when replacing the clutch?

Thanks

EBC DRC205 is what you want. It comes with frictions/steels/springs and is about 1/2 the price of OEM. I installed one in my 690 at 5000 miles (burnt the stock one trying to get out of the stickiest clay I've ever seen!) and it is still holding up okay now at 12000 miles. I've been seeing "Outlaw Racing" clutch kits on ebay for ~$80 but have no idea who actually makes the kit... they use EBC's photo's though. If it is just starting to slip in high gears you could probably get away with just replacing the frictions which EBC sells for ~$60.

It is always a good idea to soak the friction plates in oil ahead of time. The only thing to take note of during disassembly/reassembly is the alignment of the 2 inner hubs, they fit 4 different ways, but there are arrows on each piece that should point at each other so there is only 1 correct way. Just mark each piece in a straight line with each other (using a sharpie or similar) before pulling it apart and you'll have no problems.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

Mine's now slipping in the higher gears from 1/s throttle onwards, probably due to having stuck in thick mud too many times.

Is there anything else under the clutch cover that I need to be aware of?

Got round to replacing the cluch pack this afternoon.

Had a new gasket to hand, not a difficult job even without a manual. Bike now pulls as it should do. Fitted the EBC clutch, pressure at the lever feels very slightly heavier as expected. Kit came with 6 springs rather than the 4 springs that rthe 690 needs, I assume this clutch also fits another bike?

Bingo, exactly what I did in East Texas last weekend, and I wasn't the only one. Wheel suckin' clay-mud from hell.

$154 from cheapcycleparts.com. Good info, thanks.
