Pirelli MT43 ?????

If so, I have had one on my 450 for past two seasons and love it....no need for knobbies for trails now...not so good on sandy or muddy downhills, but so much better everywhere else the trade-off is worth it to me....high sidewall but a weak sidewall....might want a rimlock for low pressures...lasts a looooooong time

Oh....it's DOT too.


WAY better than yer grandpa's trials tires....a new generation.

It might change your riding style on tight single track corners as it is glued to the dirt and doesn't spin out as readily.

How does it handle at speed on open dirt roads?

Do those little knobs get torn off during the transport legs?

Presumably you spend a bit of time modifying pressures in different terrain?

Does the ECU log previous faults and can they be read out with tuneecu?

Only existing error codes.
A question does the ecu keep log on what maps that been loaded, not just current ones?

New 2013 690 servicing

600 mile servicing. Dealership says about $300. Any suggestions on a cheaper way. Do you need to get the KTM hooked up to a diagnostic. Computer? Only thing I notice is the fan comes on in stop and go traffic. A out 2 to3 bars from max hi temp. Is this normal? Goes off and cools when moving again. My first water coed bike. Last bike 1988 Honda xl650.

That is normal for stock 690's. Some have switched to the lower temp fan switch. Others here can tell you which one to get.

Check all the critical bolts are torqued correctly, adjust the chain, and change the oil and filters. Do it yourself, and if you really feel the need to see if there are any fault codes, buy a Tune ECU cable for $50 and DL the free software. You'll save $200 and you'll know that everything was actually done.

Yes your fan is working corectly.

I think these are the two you want:

KM765EU0804031EPMap.hex OEM KTM 690 SMC EPT map All years with Akropovic slip-on exhaust
KM765EU0804031FIMap.hex OEM KTM 690 SMC EFI map All years with Akropovic slip-on exhaust

Tons of info on this stuff in the 690 TuneECU thread:

Mine, after a year still hits a few bars below max in stop and go. I've never overheated and the fan has always kicked in to cool things down. It does seem to run hot, hotter than previous models (mine is a 2012).

The way they've named them can get a little confusing. I'm running these maps in my 2010 690 Enduro R with foam Uni airfilter and FMF Q4 and it runs fine. It cleaned up most of the popping on decel and made the off idle throttle a little less jerky.

Mt43

I'm running MT43 rear, and that's what the rear in the photo looked like. I don't go lower than 15psi since I don't have rim locks. Have had good experience with them even in deep sand (not full-on dunes) and on freeways. Haven't tried them in mud.

1) Handles well (no pavement riding on 450)....a Michelin S12 on front is SCAREY on gravel

2) Fabless is the guy whose tire lost a knob....mine are holding up well on 450....a 690 has a lot more power and would be harder on the MT43 than a 450.

3) Nope....set at 10lbs for off-road single track and dirt/gravel roads...
