    Have not touched it or ridden in 9 months....other than to drain the coolant out of it. Had 3 decent crashes last year and needed a reset. I have done 10 years of ride and not much else so a little breather. Bike will get torn down and reiterated this spring.

    Positve.

    100/80 means 100 mm wide x 100*80/100 = 80 mm heigth As you can read in the link, it's the aspect ration, and it is exactly the same principle with car and truck tyres.

    The lower the aspect ratio, the sportier it is. Typicaly, sport car tyres have aspect ratio in the area of 30 to 40.

    That said, the end result is not always in sync with the reality. Dunlop D606 130/90-18 are as wide as Pirelli MT21 140/80-18, and as tall as well ... It's not an accurate science ...

    Anyone know if we can swap out the 2012 instrument cluster for an older digital one?

    I already have white dust in my 2012 one as well as LCD issues with parts of it blanking out...

    Cheers..

    Just asking a question, I don't spend hours and hours researching tires and specs:lol3 I can tell you though, that twisting the throttle makes them disappear quicker and sitting on the couch makes them last forever:deal

    Anyone have the part number of the 2012 short oil filter? The one I got in the mail is different from the one I pulled out of the bike and want to make sure I have the correct one. I'll call the dealer$hip in the morning unless someone here knows.

    Thanks!

    I have no firsthand experience with the RR cam but I decided against it for my own bike after reading that, while providing a noticeable boost in power up top, there was an equally noticeable loss in power down low. I haven't found any other commercially available cam's for the 690 yet but I haven't looked terribly hard either.

    I've read that you can purchase/install an actual switch on the handlebars of a ktm 690 to change the throttle maps on the fly. Does this switch exist? If so where can I get one?

    I had a nice Trail Tech switch on the Berg, but I don't think they make one for the 690 ...

    Maybe that is the answer for folks running slower throttle cams to tame down the initial delivery...

    So I did the first valve check on my 2012 enduro with 624 miles on the clock. Fired right up, but there seemed to be more valve noise than usual, bike ran fine, warmed up. Changed the oil and the noise didn't subside. Took the skid plate off and it was still noisy.

    My 950 has somewhat noisy valves, and my v-strom was noisy too. The 690 is the same noise but louder to the point where I'm a little worried (though it's a new bike so I'm kind of nit-picky :lol3). Tore it down to the valves again and everything was at .13mm except one exhaust was .14mm . The bike had the same level of noisy valves after about 550 miles but they were all tight when I checked them and reshimmed them to .13mm but the noise persists.

    I know these bikes are noisy but I looked more closely and saw some scoring marks on the rocker arm bearings, perhaps these marks are normal, and the noise is normal?

    Here's a picture:

    Im not sure if they fixed the rocker bearings, but mine let go on my 09 and ate the top end. If in doubt, swap em out!

    Here you go, their stuff is normally very good quality as they only work with top manufacturers like CP etc.
