the small extra bulb in the headlight housing is referred to as a city light. the purpose is to illuminate the headlight and make the car/bike a little more noticeable. the bulb will typically come on with the parking lights and the headlight. Its also nice to have in a car when the main bulb burns out because it keeps the car looking like a car instead of a strange motorcycle (at night). usually a 5 watt bulb.

I think they were an early version of a daytime running light before they were mandatory in some places at which time they just turned on the whole low beam.

can someone give me a part number for an aftermarket in tank filter for the 690E. I think in the past there was a NAPA number posted.

You could eliminate the in tank filter and remove the quick disconnect fitting. In place of the quick disconnect install the inline napa filter. I have a couple at home...they were about $2 each....have to look for the part number

KTM# 7623403100 - Shift lever

KTM# 75034032000 - shifting lever spring

KTM#54634031050 - bolt 6x25 for shift lever

Am I missing anything else ? Can I buy the hammerhead design lever above instead of the OEM one? Hammerheard doesn't list the same part number.
Can any one any help me with my question above? Basically the entire shift lever fell off and I am trying to gather all the part numbers for mounting it back . I have a dual sport ride scheduled this weekend and I dont want to miss on it.

Pictures as promised for the Cyclops wiring.
I switched the wires to Ged's diagram and the low beam came to life. Thanks again Ged.

This is how it's wired now.


I also installed an Advmonster helmet light to the outside ring.


Here's the Led and high beam at the same time. The LED is running on the 8.something volt rechargeable battery pack in the photo. I'll have it wired directly to 12v soon and get some night photos if anyone wants to see them. Nice little light.

Above is a review of the Hammerhead lever. I don't know If I want one now.

Here's the link for the lever. http://www.hdmoto.com/ProductDetails...uctCode=KTM1SL Hammerhead sells the bolt as well if you're in a hurry.

Here's the fiche for what you need OEM. Looks like #13-19 would cover you. http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....=13&A=459&B=38

And while you're at it, check the side of that smaller hose for chaffing. Mine was worn about 1/3 through, where it rubs on the left upper tank bolt.

Barman,
Thanks for the wiring pic:



I have decided to forgo the 80/100 watt bulb for my Rally Light for the following reasons:

1) The ceramic pigtail plug I want needs to be ordered from the USA (2-3 week delivery);
2) Parts guy said , as have others, that I would also want to use heavier wiring and a relay....(My eyes glaze over when people start talking "electrospeak" ) and that can be a real hassle (ie. how far back in the wiring loom do I have to go?);
3) Parts guy says, "Why not just use one of these bulbs.....? I have them and they are fabulous..."



Wattage 60/55W = 110/100W ......(which I said was snake oil numbers, but I will try it...)
H4 Xtreme White Plus ANTI-VIBRATION

4) So I said....okay....as the installation will be MUCH simpler.....and it might be enough candlepower to shut me up....

I may have had bad luck and hope your experience with these bulbs is lengthier than mine.

2 of 3 popped within a year. Maybe 7k on f8gs and 2k on 690e. 3rd is in a less used street bike.

I did like the light while it was lit but be sure to keep a less $$ back up in your kit.

give the IPF Superclear bulbs a shot. Last about a year in my car and I have the headlights on all the time. Cost about $80 a set.



This bulb is an improvement to IPF’s existing Fatboy bulb by incorporating the latest in lighting technology that results in a brighter, but more efficient low and high beam. The Fatboy II Bulb uses an exotic high-pressure gas mix, coupled with a massive bulb envelope to create to unrivalled brilliance. The unconventional bulb shape provides less loss of light from the filament. A stabilizer rod within the bulb extends the life of the filament even in the harshest of conditions.There are two different color options available, Super Clear and Max White and both are available in pairs or as a single unit.

Good idea to slide some PVC electrical flexy conduit over the fuel line where it rubs ( and also where it might)
