TT support is much stronger:

I pulled the plug out of the switch and jumped it with a piece of wire (its only 2 prongs). If the fan goes on the switch is toast.

Also, somebody mentioned a suzuki/kawi part number that will go in and actually comes on at a lower temp, which may be beneficial to you.

The switch offered by KTM Twins is also 88 degree on like the Suzuki switch. I grabbed the Suzuki switch over the winter when the KTM Twins switch was backordered and the Suzuki switch was cheaper. Suzuki must have caught on because it isn't cheaper anymore.

So I unplugged the thermo switch and used a test light to see if power is going to the thermo switch. Test light would not light up on either prong. Should there be power there? Or dose it only get power when the bike over heats. I traced the wires back and one goes to the fan and the other to the harness. I also checked all the fuses.

it is probably switching the ground . i know that is the case on the 640

you want to get continuity across the contacts when the thermostat is working.

fan problems

You could use a jumper wire to see if the fan cuts on if so then you know it is in the switch and not the wiring.

Damnit Bobzilla. Quit being right all the time!

I just looked at the schematic. The thermal switch is on the ground lead not the hot. A jumper across the 2 prongs while the bike is turned on should turn on the fan. If it does, your thermo switch is bad. If not, you have a wiring problem. In which case you could pick up a ground basically anywhere.

Stalling....

Stalling issues sucks...Thought it was just me...nope...Idling or close to it in first gear...kind of embarrassing if you are in a slow slight turn & someone is watching and you have to jab a foot down to keep from falling when it stalls out of nowhere...

I did put on a fmf powercore...waiting to get a foam filter on before hauling/riding 300-350 miles to dealer for reset and or map...

it did this some while bone stock too...but seems to be more relevant now..

Ok tried it and fan comes on. I have a new 88 degree thermo switch ordered. I forgot about the wires that go to the fan and didn't think about one of them could be the hot. It makes since now. I really appreciate all the help.

Giant loop and KTM690

I went to this epic Roaming Rally in Canada...we needed to carry our stuff with us for the whole ride....i chose the giant loop which did a great job being stuck on to the bike through all the tech stuff...

but my biggest problem/complain was with the gaint loop taking up most of the space on the rear seat, i couldnt sit as far as i would like and my toes which are usually on the rear brake was shifted towards more of the rear part of the feet...so every time i had to get on the rear brake i would lock it up because i never could get the feel of it with the heel of the boot....

any suggestion to move the giant loop further back...or some other luggage system that would remove this problem
