    In your post please provide a title for the item and a link to the information. When I add it to the Wiki I'll throw it into the list at the end of this post

    Added the canisterectomy process with images hosted from the wiki. I'm going to figure out the references section so I can point back to the advrider post. But that should give people a taste what the end result will look like.

    Also, just because a topic has been covered in the wiki doesn't mean another process/pictures/method of doing it isn't needed. The more information on there the better.

    Did we want to use 690rider.com or ktm690.info, the latter is available.


    Whenever we get a TLD for the wiki I'll also move it onto my ssd from my spinning disk raid array for faster response times. :norton

    My vote would be for ktm690.info, as its not only consistent with the (950) HOW domain, but a more representative/accurate reflection of the content.

    690 owners - unite !

    I just had the epiphany (that you clearly had some time ago), that 690s and Zappa go well together !

    Nice job. Couple of minor but common fixes I've done are Air Temp Sensor Fix & tank bolt replacements. I documented them on my 690 adventure thread but the pictures disappeared after photobucket revamped their site. Is that the sort of thing you are looking for? I can repost on here if you think its worth it?

    Cheers

    A common problem with the 690 is the wires to the air temperature sensor breaking which causes a fault code to appear on the speedo. Its is a simple fix but a bit fiddly.

    The Problem

    Release the sensor from the Air Box and remove the rubber bung. I used a small nail and picked it right out.
    [​IMG]

    You need to get a couple of short peices of wire to splice in between the sensor and the broken cable ends. Solder the two splices onto the tabs on the sensor. This is a bit tricky but I managed it so you will have no worries
    [​IMG]

    Next thing is to solder the other end onto the cable. Now is the time to slip the rubber bung over the wires as well as some heat shrink wrap then solder your extension wires to the exiting ones.

    Once thats done, slip the heat shrink back over the joints, toast them up and your good to go.

    No more warning light :clap

    I'm going to send KTM an e-mail on our behalf to see if we can get the parts fiche pdf's for the wiki. :wink:


    I don't expect them, but asking only rarely hurts :lol3.

    Also has EVO 2 stuff in there.
