OK time for a little update.

Got a little time to play with the bike today. Set the Leo Vince Ignition switch to a number while the bike was turned off - started it - and played in that setting. MUCH BETTER

AND the front wheel suddenly got lighter today was able to watch the angels playing in the clouds on several occasions. Got another 100 miles logged on the ticker today - 338 total. Bike feels nice and strong - even got some single track in - Im likin it more and more. Cept it stalled once or twice - might have to clean them injectors after all

Thanks for the advice all of you's

Thor,
The stock mirrors are crap.... they can vibrate themselves until the stalk breaks on rough roads....I like these:

WWG,
My stock settings (a la KTM dealer) seemed to allow the bike to sometimes stall when rolling on the throttle from a dead stop if I didn't fan the clutch a bit (stop light/trail). Since Uller did his Tune ECU magic to the bike, it hasn't stalled in such conditions.....so that is another option to check out.

A clean injector and correct tps setting is the first place i would start if having stalling problems

damn Ged that Thorin guys bike is CLEAN.............not like mine

that injector: singular
If there's more than one installed you've got the wrong bike. Check in over at "orange crush".

What shall I ask of the stealership ?? will most know of this or do I have to have a specific setting in mind long before I get there ???

My local dealer is a .......... scratch that............ was a bicycle shop that sold motorcycle parts. They acquired a KTM dealer status and have been selling them for a few years - but how knowledgeable they are on specifics may not be so great. They do have an in-house mechanic and sometimes a very hot looking counterlady workin it but most of it is all fluff

From this site: http://www.ktmforum.co.uk/supermoto/...ps-issues.html

"not sure what you were doing above in setting the voltages but it didnt sound correct. follow the guide below, it works. At least get that right, then you can move on.

guide to checking the tps voltages, i've seen on a couple of forums: (worked for me)

PLEASE NOTE: This is not the KTM approved procedure. I came up with this procedure after being given the values for the THAD and APAD sensors. I did this willing to assume full responsibility if I damaged or messed anything up. You should be willing to do the same.
Proceed at your own risk.
1. Remove seat.
2. Pull headlight fuse
3. Remove airbox
4. Disconnect the large multi pin connector going to the bottom of the throttle body
5. Turn ignition on
6. First verify THAD voltage level. There is a 3 pin connector that connects to the sensor on the left hand side. Using a meter and a safety pin, determine which wire is the signal wire. I did this by connecting the meter ground to the negative battery cable and probing with the meter positive by sticking the safety pin between the seal and the wire down at the connector. The connector needs to stay connected. One wire will have a +5v, one wire will be 0 (ground) and the other will be the signal (~.7v) once you figure out the probing with the safety pin, this went quickly for me. Once you find the signal wire, reach inside the TB and close the throttle blade. You should see the voltage level drop. Adjust the sensor as required to get the voltage level as specified: THAD Voltage should be 0,52V 0,02V Fully Closed.
7. Now verify APAD voltage level. Same procedure as above. Sensor is located on right side of TB. Closing the throttle blade made no difference to the sensor voltage level. This sensor is tied to the hand throttle. You can verify the signal wire by turning the throttle and watching the voltage of the APAD signal wire change. Adjust as required to get the voltage level as specified: APAD Voltage should be 0,72V 0,02V Fully Closed.
8. Once both sensors are set, turn off ignition and re-assemble everything.
Also note that the battery voltage should be higher than 9.5 V when adjusting the sensors."

BtB has not tried this himself, but its broadly similar to the process to adjust TPS for my old 1150GS. The main problem is that I do not know if the values differ for the E, R and new low-R.

When the bike shop installed my first MT21 they put rim locks front and rear, and it vibrated so much I got the wheels balanced immediately, but it looked terrible (lead stick-on patches). On the next tire change I drilled the opposite end and installed 2 identical rim locks and removed the lead, and I can't feel any special vibration now.

Exhaust options?

So the 690s have arrived in California?? Anyway, for the exhaust the FMF Q4 seems popular but what is the lightest overall? Anyone have a comparison chart?

Any all Ti pipes?
What about replacement header to match?

Q4 is a good inexpensive solution. Fleabay has aluminum slip-ons for just over $300.
If you want to go full Ti be prepared for some serious sticker shock. Akropovic is an option, http://www.ktmtwins.com/ktm-690-part...-parts/exhaust If you're going to spend that kind of cheese, get the carbon heat shields as well. The stock stainless shields are heavy. Haven't looked at Leo Vince yet but heard they're really loud.

Just checked Leo Vince. Only a stainless slip-on available.
