Thanks for that - will add it to check out.

LED relay goes kaput!

I installed some new LED signals front and rear. When I finally plugged in my new Sicass relay http://sicassracing.com/store/produc...signal_flasher it flashed quickly for a few seconds then stopped working.

Do I have a bad relay, or might it be something else?

I can't remove the dang thing. I dont want to pry it out because the sorounding metal "nilos ring " is very soft.
On other bikes I have I can, so I was wondering....but in the 690 owners manual, it doesnt mention removing and inspecting that particular spacer.
Maybe it was overtorqued in the factory? Should I go to my crappy dealer? Doubtful there is any real problem.....besides being anal retentive...just wondering.

Mine fell out when I was changing the tire... but then again so did all of rubber bits in my cush drive...

I've been running a similar setup (purchased from bobzilla) for several thousand miles now and aside from the hassle of removing my tankbag to get under the seat (now just running e-12 saddlebags), it has been just what the Dr ordered! Holds almost exactly 1.25g. I don't see myself getting Rally Raid or Safari tanks until my buddies all have more range than me.

I think Bob used his for smuggling moonshine....his 690 never went far enough to run out of gas

Once upon a time and after some semi-successful wrenching, with some expert help....




Bob was happy to hit the dez for some more....

Only to be towed 50 miles in silt and sand....




It is enough to make a guy want to resort to demon liquor....

I'm at a lost as to how I'd be able to apply equal pulling force on all sides of the spacer, without mutilating the rubbing bearing or nilos ring (only $7,btw).
Would a bearing puller and slide hammer not do the trick?

No Start

Posted a few pages back on my woes, and they have gotten worse...this is just me venting, more or less

Took my KTM to a Non-KTM dealer to get 15K inspection done (late), thought I'd give em a try and save me time

Vavles I were told were good, rode home (New chain, sprocket) and it hesitated at intersections, then stalled when I got home for the first time ever, owned since new.

Test rode later, same thing. Called shop and they picked it up for me to give it a look. (They forgot to re-install the front screw holding the airbox lid, but it was secure to the boot) I was gonna do the 15 min reset (never did it before) but could not get it to idle for more than 8 minutes

Shop picked up bike, and couldn't find any error, other than at low idle same as me so I said bring her back, I'll put a few miles on it like it is then, benefit of the doubt maybe it'll work itself out, or something will break definatively, and that'll make it easier to troubleshoot

Bike was dropped off while I was at work, went to start it the next day, and NO START, hasn't ran since. They will be picking it up again this week, and most likely trucking it to the nearest KTM dealer (who only deals with smaller bore KTM's, but will take a look at it)(

So, to try and make my life simpler, end result uhh, not so much! So I ripped into it today, I've never even had the airbox off this thing before, last inspection was through a KTM dealer here that has since closed down

I've found 3 wires that had the insulation worn through to the point I can see copper. Wires not looking damaged though, so I taped and reset them in proper places.

Pump I'm sure is fine. It sounds the same as always, and is sending fuel properly. No spark methinks somehow. Of course I DON'T HAVE THE PROPER FRICKEN PLUG WRENCH. A problem I will soon rectify. Always assumed one of the many I have would fit.

Plug wire is good. May have just fouled the beast? New plug, will try a new battery as this one is crankin soft, but only as a result of trying to start in on and off the last couple days. Have a charger on it, but it is the original battery (2010 690 R)

Anywho....not intending to be negative, just posting so that when it does get fixed, by my hand or the next, I'll post what it was so it may help someone, sometime.

Have fun riden y'all., I'm not...

Bike is awesome, and has never skipped a beat prior to this. That's the gamble of gettting someones elses hands in there, who knows what happened at the shop. A simple remap may be all it needs. Just gotta find someone that can first! Or invest, hmmm....


Not blaming the local dealer either, they seem to be good folk, and part of this experiment was to support the local economy, and hope to find a good shop in the process.

Ride safe,

MFS

What are the downsides to the air intake being routed like that-affect performance? Watercrossing concerns? What else had to be moved? The stealth gallonage is very intriguing.

I had 20% less fuel mileage when I had the Unifilter vs the stock air box. The performance was quite nice though. Not as loud as the Twinair filter on the front of the air box.
