KTM690 owners, on a STOCK KTM690R, with stock gearing, while you are doing 75mph on the fwy for LONG stretches at a time, what is the RPM at?

And, how about a real world top speed please, i know the bike is great off road, trying to see about its fwy and top speed characters, assuming the rider weighs 160 pounds, thanks.

My '12 with stock gearing and a 606 on the front and a Heidi K60 on the rear at 75 mph (GPS) turns right at 5.5k if I remember correctly. The engine is turning this fast the second I hit 75

A buddy with an earlier year model says he's hit 116 on the speedo. I don't believe it though.

Calculated speed at various rpm. The 2127mm circumference may not be accurate for your rear tire. Changing the vary last entry on the browser URL, 15r45, to reflect your final drive ratios, for example 14r48 [the gearing I used in Colorado last week], will show the new speeds for each rpm. Apologies for being a geek.

Hope people didn't miss the two links in this post.

14T Front Sprocket on 2013 690 Enduro R

I find the gearing a little too tall for my gnarly backroads stuff so my easy option is a 14T front sprocket. I have a few of them in the box from my 350 excf and my old 450 excr.

I googled around and there is no rubber damped 14T, so guys are using the 14T from the exc bikes. Cool - I got those.

BUT when I mounted it and torqued up the bolt it does not tighten the sprocket down - it just "floats". Is this right? If so will it hit the swing arm? Its soooo close.

thanks!

Wrong sprocket. There is a designated 14T sprocket for use with the 690.

I cannot find one in the parts catalogue (only 15, 16 and 17). Do you know any more details?

thanks

Nice try.

How about I rephrase it for you: what brand 14T sprocket did you put on your bike? KTM does not sell one.

I am NOT asking you to search for me. I have done that.

I ride a 14t without the rubber no issues. There is a bit of wear on the swingman guard but have yet to wear through after a few thousand miles.

Wow, 75mph at 5.5 rpm is great, my current bike is at 7k rpm at 75mph, thanks for the info, much appreciated.

Trying to tweak my sad suspension tonight. The shock rebound adjuster only has 13 clicks and then it stops/seizes. Any tricks to freeing it or do I need to send it off to a shop?

Shift Lever Leak

I have a bit of oil oozing from around the shift lever shaft - presume it is the Shift Seal Ring (0760142461) that is the culprit. Does anyone know if this is an easy replacement - just pop out the old seal and push in a new one - could it be that easy????
