Hmmm... Can you ask on how they fitted up?

I would say the side panels are a special design for working with the twin tanks?
When the front of my side panels are mounted up, the rear mounting points a almost 2"off!
I can almost bend them to fit, but not quite.
I can get the side pictured to fit.
The other side is worse & I haven't been able to align to bolt the rear into the top tank mount. Grrr

I should have read between the line on RR stuff 'barely' fitting & sketchy replies to customers.

Awesome, thanks Skinny. Wonder why they would send it out without instructions? Did you have to cut the plastic cover to make space?

The plastic covers on each side of the ignition switch don't have to be trimmed, but the rubber grommet gizmo that slips over the ignition switch won't fit quite right since the switch is moved back by the thickness of the Rally Raid mounting pin...My 2008 model didn't have any of that trim over the switch...I'm not sure when it was added.

I had to remove the coolant tank in order to get the ignition switch off.

Thanks for the shock/linkage info.
I made up this to plug into the loom so to keep all connectors intact.

Blow compressed air,maybe solvent to clean area around plug. Remove. Hand thread new plug,tighten but definitly dont over tighten
Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I don't have either the tool kit (so no spark plug wrench) or a torque wrench...

Those two wires have the resistor soldered between them, and that plug connects to the one that used to go into the sensor?

Just stick a flat head screwdriver in the notch on the spark plug cap and pop it off. Use a 14mm deep socket and flexible joint in between to 3" extensions and you wont have to remove the air box.

Astatine, any bike requires a certain amount of maintenance.
Even from new the 690 needs a toolset handy. And especially a used KTM.

Tool up! ...Get some hand cleaner and shop rags and go for it!

On my marathon RR tanks install a heat gun is needed to mold the plastics into compliance.
I too learn as I go.

Now to go drill my fuel pump...

Just use the drain hole for the plug and a little compressed air and it pops right out

I don't have the RR tanks so, I am just guessing but, would it be possible to loosen the tanks slightly allowing them to move into a "better place" that would then allow proper fitment of the side panels without resorting to the heat gun?

Thanks for all the encouragement! I should bite the bullet and just do it. It'll save a bunch of money, assuming I don't completely mess it up...

Well now you went and made it even easier. Thanks again, Beaney

(I asked about removing this sensor a couple of years ago to eliminate the possible failure point and the response I got was just short of calling me stupid. It is nice to know I wasn't completely off my rocker. )

It probably should be mentioned thought that by removing this sensor the bike will continue to run, with you trapped underneath it, while it is spewing gass all over the place. With that being said, I will soon be adding another resistor to my 690.

That is correct. I however, have already butchered my wiring harness in so many locations that I will be completely pulling the wires back to the computer and adding the resistor there. Eliminating the need for the connector.

Thank you very much! One more question. What is the best way to get that exact connector? Does it have a # ?
