With the wheel off you can put the pad back into the groove. Push on the brakes a bit to put the caliper close enough to keep them in before putting the wheel on. Wheel still on takes pulling that PITA pin to get the pads off. Then put back on.
Got it! Pushing on the brake a bit was the key. Thanks.

Anyone care to post the material and procedure here? Will then get it posted to the Wiki.

I used the existing Wiki fuel pump post to do the inside with some tweaks removing the plastic lines all together. As far as outside, there seems to be a variety of opinions on locations for the filter. I chose my location to allow easy access for changes.

BTW Thanks for keeping that Wiki up. It has been extremely helpful to me in getting all those little things taken care of.

Just did a reset two days ago. For those not sure, read page 169 of the 690 shop manual.

I'd love to take credit for the 690 Wiki but MuffinMan and others have really made it happen.

The fuel filter relocate to the exterior is a common question here and would be great to have this on the Wiki.

Anyone have a step-by-step?

Im selling my '12 KTM 690. Its only got 2900 miles. It's like new... the plastics have some blemishes on them from the trails is all. I put a Leo Vince slip on it. What would you guys consider a fair price for this? Bought it for 10,200 OTD.

Internal VS External fuel filter

Riders,
When I externalized the fuel filter years ago on my GSA1100, the reason given to me for the filter being inside the fuel tank was that if the filter fell apart or otherwise was in a state of structural incontinence....no fuel would spill outside the tank: a safety issue more than a practical service issue.

Someone several pages ago made a remark to this effect.

My spring 690 prep WILL include a fuel filter externalization w/ metal fuel filter as done by Dad2bike:




As such, the new CACycle fuel pump will have to endure the innards of the tank alone, only sharing that wet spot with immersible fuel line. Crankshaft referred to the corrugated/accordian-pleated line he sourced for the internal hose.....but the website was not specific as to that material's relationship with gas.....


As for the previous comments about "Adventure Bikes"......my take is this:

"An adventure bike is like a dual sport bike.....it is the rider's attitude that determines what the bike is.....not the advertising bling."

In most parts of the world a Honda 150 would be my adventure bike of choice.

I just came back from two weeks in Mexico on a KLR rental.....and loved it !

Wouldn't buy one at this time, but felt confident that it wouldn't let me down. It was the tool for the job.....took it over the BMW 650 and the Vstrom 650.....

But the 690 would have enjoyed the trip

I just use the standard map for my Leo Vince. I rarely stall... only if its cold. It's probably worth re-mappin to the akra.
