I do suggest spraying some contact cleaner on there to get any grit out before you do the collars the first time.

Here's mine, and my handle is "akirkland"




EDIT: Linky Now Worky -> HERE

Would really, really appreciate the support, or just go and vote for whoever's pic you feel is the best!

But given this is a KTM 690 thread, I would hope you guys would vote for the best bike!
I'm now losing by only 2%!!! Please help if you can!!!

Maybe a group buy list to get things started
drjoe australian forum member had/has fitted a preload adjuster on a 690,maybe a pm to him for info ?

I know you can get them at $400 but I'm thinking $200 is enough
The xtrig I have for my 500 was $180

08 KTM 690 - FI light - bike runs rough - induction manifold pressure?

I haven't been riding lately but last week I was getting the bike back together, putting on some new parts, etc...

The only engine related part I put on was a new Remus pipe. Other stuff was new tires, plastics, cogs, sprocket, chain...

I noticed that the bike would turn over, but not start. Battery was charged, fuel pump priming - but it just wouldnt catch.

I had the upgraded fuel injector in my spare parts bag - and thought that might be the problem - so i installed it. Sure enough - the bike would now start, and idle - but would refuse to run. I could get it going in 1st and 2nd - but the bike would backfire badly, and die when the rpms dropped to idle.

Then the FI light came on - 9 blinks which indicate - Input signal from pressure sensor of induction manifold too low/high ktm.

What the hell and where the hell is the pressure sensor of induction manifold?

In Colombia - i had another related issue where the bike wouldnt start - and I got the same FI light. I brought it to the dealer and they cleared the code and put in a new spark plug and that seemed to fix the problem - for about 15,000 miles.

Does anyone know anything about this code? I can only find 2 examples of it ever being mentioned on google - and both didnt have much info.

Thanks

Thanks for the tip. I just got an email back from xtrig, they said they don't have anything available for the 690. Still waiting on Merge to see what they say. I'll PM drjoe and see what he did.

A more conventional term for the manifold pressure sensor might be engine vacuum sensor. I think (from memory) it's on the left side of the throttle body assembly. I would first check the electrical connection for the sensor. You should be able to identify it from the wire colors (blue black purple) using the wiring diagram.

All of this worked. I was able to easily back off the pre-load one turn. Will see how that does.
Thanks.

Excuse the bad form of quoting myself, but BTO sports just sent me this message:
"HELLO,
This is BTO sports we would like to inform you. The Hydraulic pre load will work if you have the ktm 500 mm pds shock. Thank you for visiting BTO sports have a nice day."

http://www.btosports.com/p/MERGEHPL

Still not sure they are correct so I'll be sending them a pic of the shock with the side-mount reservior to see if they still say it will work.

Not much call for them since Tuneecu is free.

It appears to lock in place by using the adjuster ring primarily.. It may just work for the 690.

The 690 shock body is 52mm and threaded part is 54mm . Same as the 950 super Enduro
The current PDS shock is bigger again as my xtrig adjuster is 56mm
But I suppose it would be easier you for you guys to try
Cause I'm in Australia postage to and fro would be a pain in the arse
