I have looked for similar bikes forsale but have not found one which leads me to think the NADA value would be incorrect due to the unavailablilty of the bike. I want to keep it or have it replaced. How do I ensure I get a replacement.
Hay I had a similar problem last year. My insurance company gave me $3800 to fix my 08 690 with 15k on it (or so). I thought there might be other problems with the bike and they said any more then that they will write it off. I am not sure what I would have got for the bike if it was but the broker said there are not many on the market. If it is a write off go online and find as many 690e as you can and tell them this is the price of a similar bike. You can try and buy back the bike from them also if it is a write off, but they might never be able to register it again. All I have to say is never take there first offer fight fight for every penny you can get out of them, it might take some time but worth it.
Good luck

Think About A Remus Full Exhaust System

Team-I just picked up a '12 690 Enduro yesterday from the Pensacola, Florida area with less than 900 miles on the clock and am itching to de-smogify and get rid of that nuclear reactor of a tail pipe.

Going to be putting my beloved '07 640A on the market in the next few weeks once I get her cleaned up.

I've spent the weekend reading through this entire thread and am taking copius notes.

When I got back to the house last night I rode her around the neighborhood and kept saying....HOLY F#CK this thing is a freakin' BEAST!! I am floored the way this bike surges once if falls into the higher rev range and wants to pick up the front end. HOLY MOLY!!

Should I go the Twin Air foam filter with RR cage, or the Uni double pod filter? Asking because I haven't picked up on the consensus of the group-everyone seems pretty evenly mixed.

The Q4 will be the route to replace the stock inferno can.

It still seems a remap is in order once the filter and can change are made-am I wrong?

Akra Map flash at my friendly local KTM dealer? Or should I go another route?

Thanks much for everyone's patience with the 690 Noob questions.

The Remus brand (Austrian) seldom gets mentioned on this site but is a great exhaust system. Remus can be accessed via MaxMoto's site, i.e., maxmoto.com and specific product info on the 690 can be found at the following link: http://www.remususa.com//WebRoot/Sto...E__0020_08.pdf

I believe their system also fits the 2012's. I have a 2010 with the Remus headpipe (stainless) and the Remus slip-on (titanium). Very high quality. The headpipe has great welds that hold the stock heat guards in place and also has a power bulge. FYI if you replace the headpipe you will need a new crush washer at the exhaust port. Remus claims, via their dyno chart, that their system gives you 2.3 more peak hp. I have the Akra mapping and the bike runs flawlessly however I think a 2012 will need a different map. Price for the full system has gone up from the $800 that I paid 2.5 years ago to $1,132. Certainly a significantly cheaper alternative if you are considering a full Akrapovic system.

I also have the twin-pod KTM foam airfilter (likely sourced from Uni). Remember when changing out your air filter to only use 1 foot pound of torque on the two airbox cover securing bolts. If you use too much torque you can pull the brass imbeded thread nuts (or whatever you call them) out of the plastic airbox body. If you just want a slip-on then I am sure the Q4 will work just fine for you. BTW the factory nuclear reactor weighs 11.2 pounds and the Remus titan slip-on weighs in at 3.96 lbs. Quite a difference.

Amen to that. When my bike got stolen, insurance company tried to lowball me with a shitty offer. Even tried to say it was worth less as I had replaced the more expensive stock exhaust with an aftermarket part. Needless to say, so hard language followed and in the end the saw the light and pretty much came over to my side.

I can check with my dealer. Alternatively, give bikersjersey.com a shout. Know they've shipped to Asia without problem before.

Today I was finally able to pull the fuel line at the injector. It isn't getting any fuel at that point. I guess I'm going back in..... This time I'm going to test the pump outside the tank to make sure it is even working despite hearing it prime when the key is turned.

More fun with the 690 than I thought I would ever have....

I just went through the exact same thing. Look back over my posts on this thread for the past couple weeks.

I remember seeing some of your posts. How did you eventually get the lines in the tank to no kink? The lines are so fragile and bendy it seems like they wouldn't kink at all....

I found it easier to put the pump assy in the tank with the regulator out and then slide the regulator in

I just slid the reg out a couple inches and the pump seemed to go in much easier. OR maybe I was just holding my mouth right .

Hmm, I haven't stuck these on yet, but I was going to use the copper not the red. Specifically because it was supposed to be noncorrosive and oil resistant.

Permatex® Ultra Copper® Maximum Temperature RTV Silicone Gasket Maker
OEM specified. Highest operating temperatures for 4-cylinder, turbocharged or high-performance engines. The most advanced, high temp RTV silicone gasket available. Sensor-safe, low odor, noncorrosive. Superior adhesion. Three times more oil resistant than conventional silicones; eight times more flexible than cut gaskets. Temperature range -75°F to 700°F (-59°C to 371°C) intermittent; resists auto and shop fluids and vibration.

You could cut it to length and weld a washer on bottom. I did that before on a lowered bike and it works pretty good.

Or buy a supermoto kickstand from someone?

Shortening Side Stand

When my bike was new and I had the dealer adjust the sag and drop the front forks a bit my side stand was too high. Found this out when the bike was delivered from Reno to my home. I took the stand off, sent it back to the dealer who cut out an inch and a half, (thereby preserving the foot) welded it back, and repainted it. The weld was very neat, after grinding, and if you looked for it you would be hard pressed to find it. Appears to be plenty strong and solved the problem. Clearly takes you of of service for a bit unless you can do this yourself, as some here can.

Just for anyone's info on those roller rockers, I ordered an exhaust rocker from KTMWorld.com a couple weeks back, and they gave me the same quote of late October, but I just got my shipped invoice today...
