It's a scam apparently. Look on Dakar web site for goodies there should be plenty or sale now
Dont think you'll find too many 690 motors at dakar now!!!
Starboard item: That's an extra main jet for the carburetor.
Originally the 2008 came with an EU street approval kit - consisting of a metal restrictor plate bolted on top of the air filter, 22mm exhaust oulet end caps and came delivered with the "strangled" main jet configuration.
Although missing on my bike ( which came in the full-effect, open & noisy configuration with the full-effect jet installed ) this bike was originally delivered with this extra jet kit for full-effect.
Port side item:
According to Vlado ( inmate "690RR" ) - this is one part of the special tool parts to remove rear axle bolt when removing engine.
It's bolted to the thread side of the swingarm axle to protect that end when hammering the axle loose.
Sorry can't find it all i can find are two 660rr motors, could you send me the link please.
Perfect. Ok, many, many thanks ¡¡
Great thread, and I am subscribing to learn more about these incredible rally bikes!
I have one question for you: I LOVE the KTM rally pegs that you have in your bikes, and I would like to extend my pivotpegzs so that they have the same length. Some years ago, before manufacturing the rally pegs, KTM extended the standard pegs, like these from a Marc Coma bike:
Can you please measure the length of your rally pegs, so that I can determine the extra length that I need? Thanks in advance!
Here's an option for you
Thanks for the link!
I had seen these extensions, but there are three problems:
* I have the latest marketed pivotpegzs, the MK3, which are wider than the MK2 ones, and these extensions work only for the MK2 model, given that at 60mm wide, my pegs would not need addional width
* They are $135, if I choose the longest ones :eek1
* I would prefer not to use bolts and nuts, and instead would choose TIG welding the extensions, so that they would look more or less like that (not my bike/pegs in the pic, and I have just photoshopped it )
What I would need is to make my pegs longer --> The longer extensions that you indicated would make the pegs 120mm (4.724 inches) long, and I would like to know the length of the original KTM rally footpegs, in case that one of you can have a look at it
Just remembered that i had a set on a bike in the garrage.
From pivot centre to tip there 130mm long.
I use IMS Rally pegs
Thank you so much!
Only one additional question: If the pegs are 130mm long from pivot centre to tip, I guesstimate that the "stepping" area would measure about 120mm? Something like that?
Thanks again, and I look forward to improving my pivotpegz real estate!!
They look really nice! Almost an exact replica of the KTM factory ones, and I'm sure that using them really improves the handling of the motorcycle. I cannot understand why not all dirt bikes comes from the factory with larger footpegs...
If any one is interested, I have another seat base and foam for sale, this one is brand new but minus the cover.
pm for details
I have the broken bike in the garage and I have really wanted to ride in it. Please help me with the answers
I've been reading about the problems endemic Magura clutch systems and in many forums recommend riding these two options:
I disassembled the RECEPTEUR EMBRAYAGE KPL. 27MM OEM: 59032061044. I've cleaned perfectly and I've changed the O-ring. By introducing the piston and slide with the push of the fingers, I sense that the movement is not linear. I sense that there are many phases of slip resistance and the tour takes place in steps.
Immediately I thought this piston sliding leaps could be causing the sudden push happens when releasing clutch in first gear. Everyone talks problem clutch discs, but I think this irregular operation EMBRAYAGE RECEPTEUR may be causing the problem of clutch in first gear.
I think it's absurd to release the clutch lever gently, if after the RECEPTEUR EMBRAYAGE it translates the movement of the hand jerking.
Can anyone make any recommendations on this?. Any recommendations on Oberon or Sigutech system?.
Also I have problems in the clutch level. Oil oozing gum constantly. I disassembled the PISTON 11MM and can not replace the seals. There is no other option, you have to buy a new set OEM: 75002032000 for 40 .
I read in some forums that the MASTER CYLINDER CPL. Magura 11mm is not good quality. Some talk of installing one of the Brembo brand but do not know much more about it or if it's an exaggeration. My bike has 10,300 miles and oil oozes constantly. Can anyone make any recommendations on this?.
Thousand apologies for my English disastrous. Greetings to all.
Does anyone make a replica of the low fender that came on these awesome machines? The part number is 5850801020030 and is around $600+ and I would love to get one but a cheaper knockoff would better.
please PM me if you know.
What Marc Coma bike is this? With chaindrive on starboard side we must be looking at something like a 660 Rally or ditto. The 690 RFR has a port side chaindrive.
See you this? http://www.rally-raidproducts.co.uk/rallye-rally-accesories-/ktm-690-adventure-low-fender
I too want a decent priced low front 690 fender. Pref white please. Surely it cannot be that hard to make a knock off for a realistic price. We are talking plastic here!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nope. No plastic in it, its all CF/kevlar hybrid fabrics. PM Sent
Yes, we all know about that one. I have it and don't like the look. I want the real deal Holyfield rally one :)
