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.
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

Isaac004: I don't suppose you have any pictures of your volt meter install. I'm not sure where to look for the switched wires behind the headlight you are talking about: ACC2?

Thanks!

there's two pairs of wires behind the headlight, one switched and one not switched. they have translucent covers, there are none like them, so should be easy enough to distinguish.
don't know if they're marked, but a multimeter can tell you which ones are on and which ones aren't

ACC2 is the switched power lead behind the headlight (it is fuse #8 I think...fuse 7 would be ACC1 unswitched power...a volt meter will confirm both). The black and white wire feed power to my ADVMonster Model 60 LED lights. The smaller blue/red (blue is switched, red is positive) and black (ground, hard to see) that are soldered into the male spade connectors are what feed the volt meter. They go to the female spade connectors hanging out that say ACC2 in the photo.

Click on either photo for bigger ones, and access to additional photos of the install.

Ok guys, i have owned my 09 690 for 10 months now and i can honestly say i hate it and love it at the same time. I have had alot of issues with it since i got it. I hit 9k miles on it today though. So it started doing this at the end of last season....when coming to a stop light it stalls, like if i am just coasting in neutral or with the clutch in i can hear the idle sputtering and then it dies. I get about 5 seconds after i pull the clutch in before it dies. If i am riding and keeping on the gas then i have no issues at all. This is what has been done so far to fix it: ca fuelpump, updated fuel line from ca cycle, new spark plug, checked out the plug wire...seemed ok, cleaned the screen on the fuel pump, had injector cleaned by professionals........i dont know what else to do. Any ideas? Should i get it re-mapped? Should i burn it to the ground and put a claim into insurance?

Have you checked your valve clearances yet?

Some times it is something simple. I had stalling issues (lean) once because I forgot to tighten the clamp on the throttle body after having the air box off.

Another time, the entire Ambient Air Temp sensor fell out of the bottom of the throttle body and was resting on the hot transmission below the throttle body indicating a much hotter air input (too lean to idle).

I've never heard of 690 idle issues being fuel pump related, but do know that proper idle is related to proper throttle position sensor calibration. This can be done with the KTM diagnostic tool or TuneECU. A lot has be written in this thread (and the 690 TuneECU thread) not long ago about this calibration. Cleaning the injector nozzle may also help.

That is really great help with the ACC1 and ACC2 circuits. Thanks very much to all who checked in on the subject. I'll post up when I finish.

Thank you all very much...

Here is the link to the thread, it's in post # 7 http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=666269

but it won't help you much because the pictures are no longer visible there either. Hopefully he can get those back up and working, because it was a fantastic resource he gave us in that thread.

Finally added the video to the valve check page and cleaned it up a little.

Really? The wiki pictures come up without issue for me when using an external internet connection to the wiki server.

Maybe you were going to the Canisterectomy mk 2 page which the pictures were lost....


Here's Bartron's but on the wiki http://ktm690.info/index.php/Canisterectomy_-_Bartron

In cleaning up the Canisterectomy mk 2 page I'm going to re-do my resistors to get new pictures but can someone take a picture from a stock bike of the canister in it's stock location with hoses and then a picture of the hose running to the gas tank vent port and the throttle body port?
