Did I say they all have this problem?
I've been having a look through the standard service schedule from the 2013 690 Enduro and find it odd that cleaning or replacing the fuel filters aren't listed as a standard service item at either, 1000k, 10,000k, or 20,000k. It does mention doing a fuel pressure check so I imagine they are expecting you would pick up any issues from the pressure reading, but I think I'll go with a regular replacement of the screen and filter maybe 5,000k or at least 10,000k.
I moved my fuel filter to the outside of the tank so I can change it any time it suits ME. Without having to tear half the bike apart.
3,000km on the island of Borneo off road going bush enough? Out of 3 bikes, one had fan stop working which turned out to be a poor connection in the fuse box. Other than that some minor issues all fixed with a small toolkit.
I'll be doing that after my warranty period is up.
Tks Noyah - this is being worked through under warranty, and I believe that a sensor replacement is next on the list in what is essentuially a 'therapeutic trial' ...
i know its not rocket science, and theres many that would work, but what filter did you use?
The recommended unit is the NAPA 3095. I personally used the Purolator version. That's what they had at Pep Boys.
I believe it was a F23172
For those folks concerned about their fuel filters, I wonder if a profill filter would help?
aka "gas tank condom"
Those filters were in demand a few years ago. I bought one but the way the 690 gas tank is designed it is a major pain to try fill the tank through that filter. Also I have had the fuel pump out a few times and the plastic pre filter that fits on the pump has never had any stuff in it. Not sure if it has anything to do with where I live or what. Maybe the gas is cleaner here? I did a week in Baja and no dirt from the gas there either. I changed the filler cap to aftermarket from new so never had any dirt falling into the tank either.
Yep, but pray your hose (or clamps) will never fail, 'cause the day it fails so close to the exhaust: KABOOM !!!
Have you ever noticed the original hose route or where it clamps to the injector? Only inches from the filter.

winner winner, chicken dinner... Thanks!!
The little bracket on the kickstand got pushed down.
Sell it and buy something more reliable before it loses too much value...
2nd best bike I have every owned!!!
Sweet! I got one right!
They both seem to be out... I will be pulling the bulb this weekend...
Why would you replace the screen, it's a cleanable part, just like the oil screens. Pull it off, hit it with some compressed air and slap it back on.
dude, just un plug it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dude yes I could just unplug the sensor and then do what? look at it? sing to it perhaps? maybe fondle it a bit? I dont have a replacement sensor to swap it with, and as the bike is under warranty it would be senseless to buy one and go through the process myself only to have KTM repeat it all at some later date if this turned out not to be the problem ...<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
So I think Ill stick with plan A, and just let the KTM boys swap the sensor and see if that fixes the problem - sounds simple to me ... <o></o>
