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.

Hey bud,
A couple things: Loosen the tank mounts and keep moving them till they fit (with the side pannels).. once they are in the right spot, tighten them down and you never have to worry. I replaced the bottom screw with a stud. Much easier to fit everything together. Take your time and do it right. It will be worth it in the long run.

Thanks for the advice gentlemen.
I did get the kit installed today.

For those who have installed, you pivot the tank off the lower radiator mount to fit the main tanks mounts. It just about sits 'right' without much adjustability.

Yes it took the heat gun to get the fit.
I'm sure practice makes perfect.

Thank you to ktmmitch for a reply.
I will be looking for the updated rectifier mount. Apparently as the older models have.

Funky fitting install but here she is.



Funny, everything with this bike is pain. From mapping/fueling, to glitchy electrics to dealer issues.
But the end result is a good performing bike.
Heres to the future.

I can see those.


That sucks.....

You know, I was impatient and didn't want to do the Renazco wait so, I went with a Corbin a few years ago. At first, I kinda liked it. It was definitely better than stock. Then, maybe not so much. However, it is growing on me again. I just have to remember to sit on the back cushy portion on longer sections and life is good.

A big bonus, It has an aftermarket seat pan that is very strong. (It is noticably heavier than stock though.)

Maybe an option to regularly purchasing factory seats that only end up breaking on you.

Just checking in. No progress on any projects right now. Life is getting in the way and every vehicle I own needs to be repaired so that the 690 waits patiently for the teardown and I don't get to ride much . Ordered parts for the sprinter yesterday and today I'll work on Saab #1. Might get out for a ride on the Berg tomorrow...after I replace the rear brake light.

I did get to play on 4 wheels last weekend:

Codrove with Greg Healey in his 1978 Datsun 280Z car...won the group 5 class on Friday and Saturday...12th overall out of 20 or so cars in regional on Friday and 2nd overall on Saturday...also won $600 in the Dmack tire challenge for taking 2nd.

Bike overheated in Australia...turned out water pump seals had failed. Fixed water pump seals back in USA and then Headgasket failed when bike got warm after 60 miles of riding. Have to pull head at least, check for warpage, replace head gasket, go from there etc.

Mine did a head gasket , seems not uncommon . I`d recomend a surface grind also . No probs in the 10,000 km since doing it .

Paul, the same just happened to me and you know what my friends told me? You are sitting on this bike too much , stand up on pegs . I even broke that hook ath the front of the seat and it does on hold any longer there and I need to tape it down. Well I will try the higher gel KTM seat and will see.

This is the price for ligher bikes, lighter materials which does not last that long.

"What'cha doing there buddy?"
"What does it look like? Maintenance!"


Nobody said that pushing the TB back into place is a part of regular maintenance.


From our last ride.

Just out of interest, what do you think caused the TB to get disconnected?

Something related to post #85 in this thread ?

Yes but ...

There's also the fact that the length of my legs being what it is, there's not much difference whether I stand or I sit ...

2008 690e stalling help!!

Hi - bought a 2008 690 E from an out of state dealer; during check ride/pickup bike stalled out after 2/3 blocks:

- starts normally
- revs normally
- stalls at 60-90 seconds; blipping throttle will not stop stalling once it starts
- turn off, back on and it starts fine, only to stall again after the 60-90 seconds

Bike has FMF installed, K&N air filter, handlebar mounted 3 position mapping switch, position 2

Dealer is working hard to get the bike fixed:
- checked tank integrity and fixed a small hole by integrated mounting nuts
- replaced fuel filter
- replaced battery
- cleaned dirty fuel injector

After these, bike ran well for 6 miles of a test ride then stalled and is repeating 60-90 second pattern

Ideas to be checked next:
- re-verify tank is venting properly
- verify all fuel hoses are EFI rated
- check EFI regulator
- EFI Reset procedure
- TPS Reset procedure
- check maps for EFI CPU and ept throttle body CPU
- check earth connection to frame
- check electrical connections around the throttle body and coil connections for dust fouling

Above are what I can find as causes for 690s running poorly or stalling; anything we have missed? Any ideas would be appreciated -

Thanks in advance!
Paul
