The problem is with the Fastway pegs to make them fit the 690, you have to grind away the aluminum below the mounting points where the pin goes in. I am not an engineer and do not now if removing material would also remove some of the strength of the casting. All other KTM's mount the pegs using 2 steel plates that are welded to the frame.

I have installed the fastway pegs on my 690. It required a little dremel work on both the bracket and peg however, IMO the changes to either wouldn't affect the integrity of the components. Just my .02....

Call in an an insurance claim. Get it fixed with new parts. If it is just scratched, a body shop might be able to fix it.

Just received my new upgraded Superplush springs and rear shock collar.
I didn't take photos of the fork springs.

Hey guys.

I have drained the oil and was going to take the filters. My long filter is part number 77038005044 on the box but of course there is another number on the filter 77038005000 in the box. Think it is for the exc, 07 supermoto r690 ..

Can I use this filter on my SMC?
Bought two sets of filters and its the same numbers on the other box/filter aswell.

Thanks in advance.

That washer must be a new thing. Mine didn't come with it. Would be nice. My spring sometimes spins when adjusting preload.

You'd think they could figure that out first time. Mine doesn't have the washer either.

Maybe we could get SPS to offer the washer for a small fee.

On race car shocks, we use Torrington bearings. Inexpensive, and make preload adjustments much easier.

I'm in. Although I don't cherish the thought of unwrapping the package under my seat to make it install a washer. But then I'm lazier than most.

Yep- 10 minutes w a dremel and dry fitting on the first peg, then 5 minutes of grinding on the other peg..soo much better than the stockers.

I bought these pegs years back, mounted tem on the '03 and '07 640A, then fitted them to this bike.

I must admit, I probably wouldn't tear into it just to install the washer. I would do the install at some future time when I was greasing up the link or something.

I'm throwing around the idea of having a second set of wheels for my 2011 690, I know nothing of wheels though.

What fits? What do I need to look for?
Is it much more complicated than just getting a couple 18/21 wheels and finding correct spacers?

Any information would be excellent.
(I am not buying anything new)

Misfire

I did a search for "misfire" and only found one result, so I apologize if this is a bit of a noob question, BUT:

Has anyone had their bike misfire and die while at speed? I had it happen 4 times the other day, all in similar circumstances. Around 5-6k RPM and on the throttle hard in top gear (so around 75-85 mph). It's like the engine burped for a second and quit firing. The FI light comes on and each time I just turned the key off and started it back up no problems and with no FI light on.


Bad injector? Spark plug? What should I check first?

Thanks

Here are the foot pegs that I put on my 690.

KTM Rally stuff


Spring safety wired and compressed. Ready for removal.
