I did it myself with Seal All, works like a champ. I run the TuBliss on my 690 rear, no problems at all.

The OEM injector kit comes with a screen that insert into the rail housing. This is not a 690 part, the filter was for the smaller single, up to the 500cc bikes due to some in tank filtration issues. There was a problem with the inline screen and it was replaced with a 20 micron from 10 (or maybe I reversed that) so the PN is updated. I have run a lot of fuel as has my buddy on his 08 with no fouling issue other than my ham-fisted field work that left a chunk of O-ring in the rail, so I think the use of the kit screen may cause more problems that it solves. A KTM parts guy told me these they used these on the smaller bikes because getting to the injector was a lot more work that the 690. Anybody running this tiny inline screen ?

Here is a link to an injector re-builder that advertises a KTM injectors. Can't beat the price for a back up if it is the correctly meter injector nozzle.

http://stores.ebay.com/OKINJECTORS/M...=p4634.c0.m322
I was just considering that after watching and seeing that mentioned in the video here:
http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Uw3S9wWSU_4

If I may add a relevant question ( or delete if too much threadjack):
1. O rings for injector seem ridiculously expensive. Any NAPA part?
2. The Rally Raid injector replacement screws. Locktite them-yes/no?

1: O-Rings are an industrial commodity. I'd be shocked if they are not available by the hundreds for pennies apiece. I plan to clean my injector (since I have it exposed) and I will measure it when I have it apart.

2: IMHO, I loctite every damn thing except threaded inserts into a plastic substrate, such as the air filter lid bolts, and anything that attaches to the tank.

They need to be Viton o-rings, so maybe not pennies each.

I've done it a 3 times now or so.. I don't remember it being difficult. The bearings on the linkage don't have loose needles. but if you remove your swing arm, be careful that you don't loose some of the bearings as they are loose in the bearing race.

I don't locktite mine. They have never come loose. If you felt you needed to.. use the weak stuff.

My own experience and counsel from master techs who wrench for a living; sometimes it is quicker and more expedient to take few extra steps so you have full access to what you are working on. Greasing the link is a good idea but inspecting and refreshing the swing arm bearings is probably more important. If you wait for a rear tire chance , you already have the rear wheel off, removing the rear damper is just one more bolt, it might be time to chane the oil and recharge the shock anyway. Disconnect the the rear brake, remove the right foot peg, drop the left and you can pull the link and swing arm for proper inspection and service. Easy peasy :-), you'll feel great when if is back together.

Anyways, as many new used bikes, it isn't without problems. It has an Akra exhaust and the previous owner said it was tuned. I know there is something wrong though. Between 3-4,000 rpm the engine lunges. It doesn't run smoothly and will lose a little power every second or so as I'm driving down the road. If I kick it down a gear it will ride smoothly at a higher RPM.

Is this typical of a bad tune? Can this be fixed with the TuneECU?

I tried the 15 minute idle, and it didn't work. At first it seemed like it did, but after an hour of driving it pretty hard, the engine issues popped back up. On to finding some cables and learning about TuneECU. If not that, injector. Thanks for the help guys.

I've never tried lifting the bike on the engine, is it stable like that? I normally lift on the bash plate but as it mounts to the footbeg brackets it needs to be removed for a swingarm bearing check...

Use some wood under the motor. Or use some straps to lift the bike by its frame to your garage door rails or something. Then you don't have to worry about the bike tipping over.

I can't speak to what's been done on the tuning side to your bike and not sure what an hour of pretty hard driving is, but I do know these bikes like to be wound out. You cannot lug them in the middle or upper gears. I've got an '09 Duke that's box stock which I bought new in March of 2010. I've got roughly 13K done. From day one its best range of operation has been between 4 and 5K. Anything less than 4K and it gets grumpy.

Anyone using the white RR Evo2 tanks? If so do they turn yellow like most clear plastic tanks ?

Thanks in advance
