    Done, and done. I don't see it being a supply issue. I have the back flush fixture for the injector set up. I'll get on that this morning and see what happens.

    I have a shifter on my 690 that is from my 05 450 SMR. Same thing. They only offer 4 different shifter for ktm's. And the hammerheads aren't out of stock. Tucker rocky has 5 in ILL, 9 in cailf. None in the PA . Warehouse.

    Well

    As far as I am concerned, Torx is one of the best thing on earth ... Particularly in tight places. Torx are 99% class 8.8 or 12.9.

    One thing however, it's pretty easy to mix sizes. You can easily use a T40 while it should have been T45 ... Oups ... And another thing ... Torx bolts are 10 times more expensives when you can find them...

    Final chapter (I hope)

    A very small hole in the new in-tank fuel line was leaking only when under pressure. replaced the week old stuff with some more bought at CarQuest rated/printed the same and it fired right off.
    It seemd to be getting worse as time went on making the origional testing void. I started from scratch again and found the low pressure condition that wasn't there before. When no pressure was on the hose it worked normally, but when any restriction was there it blead pressure from the leak.

    Hi guys,
    could any of you help with Scott's steering dumper. I have the original mounting set up for 690.

    I have bought the following bar riser and tried to fit the dumper in.

    Unfortunately I realised that I am missing approx. 5mm to fit the pin in.

    I know that the easest solution is to turn the bar riser by 180 degres and it will fit. However this is not what I want as this position of the bar riser bring the handlebars closer to the seat which I dont like.

    I was wondering whether any of you had a similar problem and what the solution was. I was thinking or playing with the bottom part but not sure whether this will not screw up someting else. I did not try to lose the nut but it seems to me that the "needle" is fitting perfectly in so I can't remove it.

    Any tips or hints? Cheers.

    Rally Raid Products make a longer arm for the damper to solve this problem

    And a special prize for Gros Buck :clap... Turns out it is a T50, not a T45, now I get to try again with a half stripped bolt and the right sized Torx, might have better luck this time.

    I think you have to turn the riser 180 degrees because, as you have it mounted, the pivot axis of the damper is not centered on the turn axis of the steering head, or to put it another way, this mount does not support the forward location of the bars. Putting a longer arm on the damper will not solve your problem.

    Thanks Beany, have not noticed this product in your e-shop. However, the last statement makes me worry because I use the bike even for commuting to work (being on motard wheels) so I dont want to lose the possibility of locking the stearing. Is that really true or is there any work around?
    Cheers. D

    NOTE:WHEN THIS IS FITTED,THE STEERING LOCK CANNOT BE USED

    Can injector o-rings be sourced locally? Finished the bike up and it has a leak at the 90° elbow where it enters the injector housing. Anyone have a part number that can be picked up in town or will I have to wait on shipping?

    yea those fuel lines in the tank kink pretty ez and i could see that using the ca pump without the oem part by the pump intake could mess with pressure as could using the old style pump w/out the barbs.

    Locally? Where's Buzztopia? :dunno

    I went to Advance Auto and dug through their O-ring selection behind the counter and found one pretty close. It was just a bit smaller I believe but no leaks. It worked till I ordered and installed a new one.

    :roflTallahassee, FL. I reckon by locally I was talking chain stores Advance, Autozone, and the sort.
    I'll see if I can get a match for the leaker and get all of them ordered. They are in and out so many times in the past week or so that I'm sure they'll need replacing sooner rether than later.

    Check out this thread and ask RBott about his setup. Might keep the steering lock functioning. However (speaking from experience), the steering lock ain't worth much. Easily broken and bike gone in seconds. Not sure what bike theft is like in CZ, but here in NL you better have a top quality chain and lock, or it's gone.
