When my countershaft was leaking, I could see lines from the shaft out on the sprocket. Otherwise, the inside of your sprocket is basically dry.

There was no washer, previous owner must of not put it back on after he changed the gearing, so I put Loctite on, oh well. And it must just be chain lube and dirt snotted up, no oily liquid so I guess I am good, thanks for the help.

If the washer is missing, I'm not sure you are compressing the o-ring correctly. That would lead to oil leak.
Get the washer installed and see if it clears up.

Brought this up a couple days ago but still trying to figure it out.
This engine was sold to me as being from a 2012 enduro.
I am quite sure it is not a 2012 motor as it does not have the oil pressure sensor on the clutch side oil filter cover.
I am not concerned except I would like to know what year and bike it IS from because it comes with the wiring harness, throttle body, computers.......
I am interested in its compatibility with my 09 enduro r. I'm sure the motor will bolt up and function with my 09 electrics...................

Is it possible to identify the bike based on the engine serial number?

I suppose that should be possible but I don't think there was ever an effort to index the numbers to years...
Motor looks in great shape from the outside :)

pull the serial number and call a dealer and see if they can give you some help.

Hey everyone,

In the next month I'm going on a 8000km+ adventure ride with my 2010 KTM 690 Enduro r. My valves have been serviced at 7500km by a factory dealer (don't know how to do it myself... yet) and I will have about 8800km on the odometer before I head off. Should I worry about servicing the bike mid trip? I'm thinking not, as long as you service the bike between 7500-10000 km you should be good. Thoughts??
For the first service everything was in spec. and I'm not really an aggressive rider.

you might plan on doing an oil change around 4000k to 5000k into the trip but otherwise no need for much other than adjusting the chain and oiling the chain, check the sight glass on the oil every day, and watch your brake pads

Okay that's kind of what I figured. Plan on servicing the oil and air filter before I go and bring 1L of oil just in case. Swapping the front sprocket to a 15 and a new chain. The rear looks good but might swap it just in case...

Thanks a ton for the second opinion!

Thanks for the input guys.
The stickers make me think it's from a smc.
Crossing fingers that it's a good motor.

you could try ballpark dating it by checking the rockers, if they are the old model or the new one. if they've never been replaced, that is

I'm also wondering if the part numbers on the ecu will shed some light?
Good eye on the casting mark. It would actually be wonderful if the electrics were 09. Then everything would be directly compatible with my bike.

I set off on a 10,000 mile trip in mid June on my 690SMC.

My thoughts on 'trip maintenance' are :

Full service inc valve check about 100 miles before I set off

Carry oil/filters for oil change mid trip. Plus 1l of oil for top ups. if I need more I will source in en route (I'm travelling in Europe so it should be readily available)

New air filter before I leave, probably won't touch it until I get back unless I have a problem !

New chain and sprocket kit and front/rear brake pads before leaving - carry old pads (about half worn) as spares.

New tyres and tubes before I leave fingers crossed they will do the trip without needing to be changed
