I just put the 1" link on my 09 Enduro R and have the forks pulled up 16 mm. Not a lot of time on it yet but I think this is going to work just fine for me.

How does a one pull the front end up?

Bike on sidestand.
I loosen the clamps on one tube at a time and use a screw driver to spread the top one some. Then grab the tube and push upwards.
To push back down I use a medium prybar between the top and the handlebar. Pushes down rather easy.

You can also get a jack under the bike though I do have an aluminum skidplate. I have an ATV/Motorcycle jack that works well when my bikes don't have centerstands.


You could also lay the bike over on it's side to remove the tension on the forks for easy movement.

1st oil change 2013 690R

The dealer wants $300 for 600 mile service. Got the filters and O rings. The Motorex oil the dealership sold me was Top Speed 15W/50 4T. It is not what is specified in the manual. Should I return this or is this fine. I live in warm/hot North Florida. Thanks for any help and suggestions.

Yellow Pig: Here is the connection for the 2008-2013 690 Service Manual. Apparently there are no printed manuals, only CDRom. When I called KTMTwins, they told me that KTM just overlays (or maybe adds?) the newer year manuals on the old CDRom. Saves them on production costs, I guess. I ordered one but haven't gotten it yet, so I can't say yet how it looks.

Link:

http://www.ktmtwins.com/ktm-690-2008...ice-manual-dvd

KTM Part Number: 3206153

Or maybe you should call them? 415 968 9467

I run a very aggressive rear tire. Pirelli XCMH 140/80.
I've got a used 1-5/8 link available if somebody wants to give it a try. Cheap.

Cool.

The cover (2008-10) vs the Listing (2008-13) vs the product description (this manual will take care of all needs for the KTM 690 Enduro, Enduro R and SMC from 2008-2011)had me confused.

I'll confirm tomorrow.

Thanks

2010 690 engine will not turn over

Currently my 2010 690 will not start. When I turn the key on I get the normal fuel pump noise, but when I hit the starter button nothing happens, engine does not turn over. No FI light flashing. I've checked all the fuses and checked most of the connectors.

No major modifications to the bike other than an Akro pipe.

Any assistance or direction on what I should be checking would be appreciated.

Just don't use a screwdriver, or be careful with it. It's very easy to mar the triples. I was disappointed that the PO of my bike had already made that mistake...

The kill switch didn't get flipped? Could be the side stand switch. Have you put the bike in neutral and pulled in the clutch...bat connections tight..grounds clean

Always good to check the starter relay which is behind the battery to the left. There are some fuses there and two big wires that screw onto the lower part of the relay.

That said, The 690 is currently waiting patiently in its mobile garage next to the berg (back of my sprinter)...waiting for the new headgasket, suspension work, and likely a fairing kit. Thinking that the bike is going to go on to do some touring duty for a while though it may get tapped again in the future for another event.

things to do:

rebuild or swap suspension
Install RR fairing kit, LED headlights.
Change out head gasket and pray nothing is cracked..worse case something is damaged and a big bore kit is called for
euro plate holder.

Would like to go ride the new trans canada route. we will see.

What are the options for a bbk on this bike. I haven't heard anything of this.

Plus one on the trans Can trail. Looks like a riot.
