This was last August. There were no service manuals for the 2012 models at the time and the tech was unaware they changed filter designs. No problem since.
Apparently the shop did investigate the oil filter and all OK ...

Thx for the heads up. I think I will give the lowering link a go just cause it is so cheap.

15 and 17 works fine. Just flip the adjusters as others have said. FYI 118 links works with 15/50 and 17/50.
Cover didn't need modifying, I couldn't get the it to work by flipping the axel. may be me if others have been able to. I'll give it another go.

Interesting

I recently had some problems with mt 690. It would just die during a ride and no fault code ect, Wouldn't start, trailer it home and in a few hours it would be fine. Anyhow this happened a few times so I checked all the wiring, all good. Pulled the fuel pump and a small piece of foil had blockced the fuel pick up, would fall off when left to sit then suck it bck up again.
Anyhow a cheap fix.

Does anybody know how much offset the 2012 690 Enduro models are running in the triple clamps? I think it was KTMmitch that posted it was increased from the previous 22-24mm, and axle clamp offset reduced, in order to gain more steering lock.

A guy on another forum wants to put on a set of full travel closed cartridge forks so he would probably have to switch to the older triples.
