Oups. After a second reading, it sounds quite different to what I had in mind when I wrote it ...

But do you have a clue of what I really meant ??? Or should I rephrase it ???

I took the pegs off the passenger brackets and put the pivot pins back in the brackets. Makes for a very nice place to attach the GL lower straps.

Thanks

I have LEDs, accessory plug (for GPS) and Heated grips installed on the SWITCHED accessory wire. It is 10 Amp fused. I wouldn't wire your grips into the low beam wire. That sounds like a bad idea.

Found the casue of my flashing error code!! Both wires going into the temp sensor snaped off right at the base of the connector . Before i attempt to pull it apart, has any one else managed to sucessfully reconnect the wires back to the connector?

It depends on what you mean by "reconnect".

Two ways I could think to fix it. Both involve first removing the pins that are inside the connector. You could try to pry them (the tabs on the pins) back open and recrimp and solder them to freshly stripped wire. A couple times I have had success with this but, just as many times it doesn't work.

Your best bet is to find the type of connector it is and what type/size of pins it uses and purchase some new ones. Then crimp those on and reassemble the connector. Good as new.

Also, I had a light bulb go off while I was in the garage. My statement above mentions the only possible movement is in the up/down direction, I started thinking about some foam under the seat to just "snug stuff up" and .... I have a Corbin seat which has a custom seat pan. It actually has rubber bumpers which put pressure on the top of the air box already. You can see some of the round rub marks from them in some of my pics. My airbox is locked in and has all directions of movement stopped by something. I'm still going to leave my disclaimer above but, now feel really confident this is going to work very well.
Good news , thats gotta save a lotta time on the side of the track.

I screwed up...

I am replacing the tank fuel filter with one outside the tank...

I purposely left the return hose on the connection where the fuel is pumped from the tank. Ran to napa... when I came back i removed it with out thinking.. now I cant remember which of connections is the return and which one goes to the pump

Its a 50/50 choice but i know i will get it wrong %90 of the time

Question about 2012 model running temp

On a warm day and especially slow moving traffic I'm getting 8-10 bars on the gauge pretty quickly. How does this compare to what you guys are getting? No, stalling and engine doesn't seem to complain but is this headed towards overheat?

I hear that the 2012 headlight on the Enduro and SMC is much improved. As good as on the 990 ADV I'm told?

Does anyone know what the difference is and if we can install the 2012 headlight into a 2011 or earlier bike?

I'm trying to figure out which 690 to get and I want a black frame and the longer travel suspension that's only 2011 or earlier but would love better light output too.

More importantly, you should try to figure out why they snapped so you can mitigate it for the replacement.

Standard Super Glue will not work well, or not at all ... You need to use this: http://www.loctiteproducts.com/p/sg_...ing-System.htm And read this: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=715 It's the post 715 of this New and improved KTM690 WUNDERFEST. You can navigate there + or - 10 posts and read the whole story.

Good luck.
