Oh yea, no question. The EFI and ignition will be 16 wires as I recall and the wiring harness will be about the same as a 525 EXC, which isn't much. I'll have a few more power wires for my Nav tower set up and that's about it.

Yea your right...of course..when you buy a bike that RUNS right, all you have to do, is add bling...

I just don't get it, ten thousand dollars for a dirt bike? And two people have a disagreement over which is better...rip it all out OR rip it all out (go carb or a hole new EFI system).

Does KTM have a updated 690, that doesn't have all these basic problems?

I won't post up a picture of my XRR, in the living room...that would be in bad taste. But, CS...you need a fireplace in your room...

Signed, hopeful 690 owner .

LOL garthe i get it, KTM doesnt have anything for me currently with a high entry price AND aftermarket needs to even make it comparable to the bike it supposedly replaced.

why the heck can a husaberg have such a great EFI system and KTM such a troublesome one? or has it been fixed since the earlier models?

regardless, i like watching the threads where expensive bikes are ripped apart to make them "better". and i like watching threads were cheap bikes are ripped apart to be made "better", i think i just like watching bikes get ripped apart and rebuilt.

Never even knew it existed Looks like KTM already thought of it but I'm going to improve it a bit. My intake runner will be about 4-6 inches longer and all that wiring mess will be gone with enough room for a really big fuel filter.

I used one and had a foam sock too and it was a 100-150 mile interval here in the desert
if it is farther up and to the rear it may be better protected from dirty air

keep in mind 4x4 offroaders run a dry paper filter with a fine mesh nylon sleeve over it for dusty race. Why not do a similar on the bikes? Pick available on request.

Whwn building the new harness, consider putting a plug in at the head stock so the whole front end, nav tower lights etc can be pulled straight off the bike.

Just an idea I had a while ago when I had to pull a rally bike apart

Great thought Beaney, didn't even consider that honestly. I know you have a lot of experience with the stock EFI system and I'm interested to hear your thoughts on my conversion. I value your experience!
