That pro-link suspension problem could be caused by what also wrecks a movie: A Bad Casting.

All the speculations are intelligent and relevant.....what about a poorly nmade part (more than a bad design or maintenance).

Just wondering.

Judging by the parting lines on the part it appears to be forged and not cast, unless it is a poor sand casting.

It is possible that there are some crappy parts out there. It is also likely that incorrect shock tuning or exceeding its tuned limits could contribute.

Oil cooler on a 690.

Forgive me if this has been talked about already.

I was nerding out on the KTM 690 rally parts fiche tonight. There is an oil cooler.. KTM part number 76238000000



There is also one available for the 690 supermoto R. KTM part number 7503805044

So my wheels start turning.. Why not one for the enduro? KTM 690 rally engine case is part number 75030000033.
The SMR and Enduro have part number 75030000133.

So my question to you.. Why not? *cough* Uller *cough*

Why would you need to change the case?? I've just looked on my 2011 and were the oil lines appear to attach there are blanking bolts in place??

We fitted one to a 690 Enduro a while back with Beaney, you just need the oil pipes of the 690RR, the fit into the blanking plugs in the enduro cases, but remove a one-way valve, like a ball-bearing & spring if I remember right, in order to get oil to flow thro' cooler.

Wes told me that he tried to fit the SM cooler and it didn't work, I think because of the bigger wheel?


The RR cooler should work if you get the associated bits, but it's around 600 for just the cooler...

im running into more money soon and thinkin about pickin up another ktm 690. the main complaint from my last 690 was the false neutrals... is there anyway to fix this? I would have to kick the shit out of it to get it into 5th and 6th gear without hitting neutral.

I wouldn't say it's cured, but I wouldn't say you have to kick the shit out of it either. I occasionally miss a shift up there, but only if I get lazy with the shifts.

You have to be real positive with shifting on the 690's. A shorter lever will help
As I has discovered the type 3 hammerhead lever seems to help ,

I've got a '12 and, although it makes no sense to me, if I start getting false neutrals I find I need to adjust the chain slightly. Weird.

Sprockets

Currently running 14/45. Im considering getting a 48t and a 16 or 17t. I'd like to go lower for my offroading 14/48 and switch to the 16 or 17/48 for highway since its close to stock or a little taller. Thoughts?

Same here. Problem has pretty much completely gone away since I bought a pair of more dirt-oriented boots.
