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.

I use the Akra map with the Leo Vince, no issues. Still a little lean on deceleration though.

Geeeze, I wish I could buy one for that much. I will be lucky to get one for $12500 OTD, and KTM still won't allow import of their bikes newer than 2007 from any other country into Canada. Jerks.
Good luck with your sale.

Can't afford to keep both so I'm selling the KTM 690 and gonna get a used beater dirt bike that I'm not affraid to drop for my trail riding. The 690's an awesome bike... just doesn't fit the role that I need as well as the F800GS does.

Figured I'd take advantage of the cavity left behind from the stock air box, as well as hopefully controlling some of the heat that reaches the filter...







Placed some heat reflective material on the lower side...

and added a dry box...

I have never been afraid to drop my 690...I usually don't have a chance to discuss the matter when it happens
