    Were you able to find one? I have the #10 from that pic if that helps. It includes the 120mm hose and the quick disconnect. Item #75007016050

    The brass one from the Bimmer barn works great as a direct replacement and it is much more rugged. Or just go the inline fuel filter route. Both are worlds better than the stock piece...which will just break again.

    Hi guys! Got my 2013 Enduro R sitting @ the local dealership, thinking of getting my exos, rad guard and air filter fixed up before i run any miles on it.

    Could anyone advice on the RR foam air filter conversion (seems too exposed) or should i just keep the snorkel and run a uni foam filter?

    I'm setting up the bike for adventure riding and simple trail riding.

    Thank you in advance!

    I run the uni filter in mine and its fine for what your describe. Easy to clean and much better than the stock paper jobby.

    If you don't already you will soon know that the oem clamps are one and done - they need to be cut off the hoses and new ones procured. This is a good chance to change out for more field service friendly version. I was unfamiliar with high pressure FI clamps but your standard hardware store hose clamp versions are less suitable for this task.

    The two auto parts places close to my house didn't have properly sized replacements, ended up ordering from here.

    These are only for EXC,there is not enough room around the rear tank on a 690 to get 1 notch movement at a time with those C spanners.
    We change the OEM(weak) lock rings for our stainless thicker locking ring,then it is possible,by using a jack-up stand to take the weight off the rear wheel,to turn the lock ring using an aluminium or brass bar.

    Screw driver might work ok on the beefy shock collars but it will just deform and bind the stock 690 one resulting in you having to cut off the collar with a dremel. I know nothing about this from personal experience last summer.

    I bought a 3/8" diameter brass rod and cut a 10" piece off to use as a drift. I used it on my 2012 690 shock and it deformed the collar rings with no deformation to the rod. I'm getting a new aftermarket collar installed with my revalve.

    Cheers,

    Unfortunatly with the OEM collar the best way is to remove the shock from the bike. I use a large channel lock plier to turn the collar rather than apply a shock load with a drift which will oval the OEM butter soft rings.

    The 2012 & 2013 models are supposed to be the same as far as I know.
    It's just that, here in the US, all the 2012 are gone so anyone wanting a new 690 is going to have to wait for the 2013s to show up, which is likely going to be around March/April 2013.

    I use 1 Motionpro C spanner and 1 BMW GS C spanner suitably ground down to adjust preload. That said, I can only reduce preload, the other direction is buggered :D
