2010 690

Hello to all the inmates here. I have been lurking here for quite awhile reading the posts in anticipation of getting one of these amazing machine. Well I now have a "new to me" 2010 690. It has a few things done to it..... FMF Q4 slip on, Scott's stabilizer, Renazco seat. Just wondering where I should start with this beauty. Are there more pressing matters than farkling that one should start out with...mechanical issues, etc. or get right into farkling issues such as luggage racks, rear racks, lighting, etc. are there favorite vendors that people prefer and who specialize in this machine. Thanks for any and all help.

Upper and Lower Tank bolts from Rally Raid (UK) or KTMTwins here in the US.

Uni dual pod.

Sounds like it already has some nice improvements!

These bikes are a freakin' hoot.

Couple issues regarding the radiator, remove the bolts on the plastic protector and zip tie it on. Shim the rad fan shroud to keep it from rubbing holes into teh rad.

..or get the RR radiator guard. it is steel and it eliminates all attachments points to the radiator. Worth every penny when you tip the bike over.(i know from experience) New radiator = $570. RR Radiator guard = $180

2011 TPS values

I'm looking for apad/thad values for the TPS sensors on a 2011 ER. The values for 08-10 aren't applicable!

Someone must know :) Thanks!

KTMTwins has 2 types of radiator protection....a crash bar setup and the Rally Raid type that mounts around the radiator. Is one better than the other. In checking over my newly acquired 2010 690 that the radiator mounts are already bent. Would the RR protection still fit?

You might have to "adjust" the tabs some. You want the rr cage that surounds the radiator is the one you want. The screen is nice to but the stock one works fine.

Radiator guards are meant to be a close and tight fit. You could certainly get the protection and make the necessary tweeks to make the fit.

As a side note~the RR rad protector I received arrived loosely wrapped in bubble wrap, metal clanking against metal, no install instructions and was one crude piece of metal work. Edges were sharp and almost dangerous to handle - the circular cut around the radiator cap was poorly executed. I returned the lot and went for the easy to-bolt-on KTM Hard Parts unit. Many guys have been happy with the RR stuff so I may have received a part that missed the QC before packing.

With the injector still plugged into the electrical hook up a tube and airhose to the output side. Then push some air/solvent through backeards as you spin the motor to cycle the injector. I can take some pics tomorrow if it'll help.
I took it all apart and cleaned the injector with no improvement. I cut the hose clamp off at the injector housing and I get good voume of fuel but zero pressure. I guess 6000 miles out of the first pump was pretty good compared to the 400 out of the replacement.

That's exactly how mine was.

The fuel pump is out.


It is a CA. Cycleworks.


Is there anything to test at this point? Can I run it outside of the tank?

Are those gray star things on the fuel line connectors that come apart?

Mini, How far with testing are you willing to go? Drop it in a some fuel and attach a pressure gauge... About all you can do. Other than power it up and see that it spins up every time. After that you'll need to get technicial to trouble shoot it any deeper.

I don't have a gauge, but I could easily hold back the pressure with my thumb over the hose. I even tried a loose grip on it once and it barely sprayed past my thumb at all.

I think I thought I might find something obviously wrong if I pulled the pump. Everything is clean though. I did cycle it a bunch of times to try to pump the gas out that I couldn't siphon and it eventually quit running.

I'll pick up some kind of gauge next week, can I just submerse the pump in a jar of gas to test it? I have almost no time to work on it now but I will have a mandatory week off after Christmas. I want to order whatever I need to get this running by then.

Then I'm going to trade it on a Road Glide or something fun that runs.
