    As they say: " Ekke Ekke Ekke Ekke Ptangya Ziiinnggggggg Ni" the old thread is no more. The new thread for 690 questions, banter, comments etc is here. This thread will reside in the background and will slowly be used in an attempt to catalog the 690 collective into a helpful and easier to navigate region. I'll try to avoid a massive pile of links except for specific threads like the exhaust thread etc. I'll try to pull the actual problems out and then put down the resulting fixes etc. This will take some time. PM info is appreciated.

    Here are some of the documents that you can freely download off of the KTM site. (thanks to Ini88 for the assist)

    These are for the 2011 690R *there are differences between the 2011 and the earlier bikes*

    Ooooh! Kudos for your method of organization :evil

    Reserve twice as much space as you think you'll need, AMHIK.

    I'll nuke this post once we get going here - so as not to mess with your flow.

    It really jacks me off loosing the last thread . I spent several nights last week going through it & writing down the pages of the info & links I needed . ie removing the sas , making a tip over sensor bypass ( for emergency ) doing the 2nd 3rd gear limiter , fuel line & filter fixes etc & are about to start these jobs . Hope you guys don`t mind if all these questions get asked again when the time comes .

    Great news that your bike is going again Uller .

    Bartron has an excellent thread that has pictures and instructions for all the usual fixes and mods. All the info is posted at the beginning so you don't have to wade through hundreds of pages of irrelevant posts.

    I wonder if all info should be in this thread as opposed to separate threads for each subtopic linked to this thread. Might be easier than having to again surf a large mega-thread. Love the 690 Adventure. And, of course, it's nice to see the Duke mentioned.

    I am open to suggestions. I think as long as we keep this thread as more of a database it will be easy to edit. Leave the bulk of the communication to the Wunderfest that Crankshaft started. :deal

    We need one like this that is pure info based like a 690 Index Thread. And we need one with all the random help and bantering and ball busting :)
