Thanks Xico, as I suspected, looks a little tricky to get to the gas caps. i assume you just push the bag to the side to fuel up.

Sorry to see, but I guess it could have been worse...

What are these "miles" you speak of?

He probably wants to know how many kilometres you have on that motor :-)

Not a problem at all. Quick and easy, unless you are racing against the clock. If at the pump, just make sure you point the nozzle forward, or it'll splash back out the tank.

KTM Part # 75038050044 Oil cooler set. Will it work on my Enduro (I dont see why not) more importantly, anybody know the heat loss involved and the extra oil capacity it would deliver?

Cheers mate, but I'm not smart, I just read a lot of stuff on the internet.

Unfortunately I don't know anybody that has tried that cooler on the E / R. I do know that it won't fit properly on the SM with a bash plate installed, and that the E/R/SMC frame is a bit different than the SM/Duke frame. Have a look at installation instructions (I can email them to you) and compare it with your current setup with bash plate installed, then you should be able to tell if the hard lines fit around the engine block in their supposed position. Attachment to the bottom of the radiator might also be slightly different, I don't think those are the same either.

All in all it's very unlikely that it will be a straight bolt-on but with some skills and time could probably made to fit. And we'll never know how much is needed until somebody tries. Will it be you?

I think for 250 bones its worth a try. As soon as I pay off my busted bike bill, i'll order this and give it a shot. You dont know what the added capacity in oil is do you?

no, not German, just a statement as I dont believe I abuse my bike any more than others, nor do I do less maintenance. Just a random event.

THE SM oil cooler will not fit on an enduro model due to the exhaust plus it's very suspect to stone damage. I know because i've already tried.

So what your saying is, the stock setup did'n't suit your need and you gave up?

10 bones and all your interweb creds says it can work!!!

This aint for the hard core off roaders like Seth, this is for the small guy that cant afford a fifth bike in their stable and want to explore ways to make the 690 a more gooder touring machine!

Yeah whatever, carry on, I've never raced a 690 and know nothing about them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH by the way you have to change the oil pressure rgeultor in the back of the engine for a temp regulator plus add the pipes, I prefer the more robust cooler from the 690rr mounted behind the fairing. I personally dont bother with an oil cooler any more because i change the oil after every 10 hours of racing like on the Tuareg and Maroc rallies, the 690 holds more than enough oil for a days racing.

If you want a cheap kit then I've got one in my scrap pile of stuff that was no good for racing.
