    few days back installed the CJdesigns' fuel filler, LOVING IT.

    one minor problem thou, so far did 4 fill up. About 5 mins after filling up the bike, it started leaking fuel from the overflow (about 100ml or so?)

    didn't had this problem with the stock filler cap. fill up with nozzle fully inserted and stop upon click.

    anyone encountered this?

    It is important to use a one way valve on that cap. Since I don't have the canister for the overflow I plugged that side hole and installed a regular tank one way vent with nipple.

    I have the evo1 map with the full akrapovic exhaust. I originally purchased the slipon and recently purchased the header. After installing the header I did the 15 minute reset. It was dark out so I was able to see the first 8 inches glow. Any reason why it would run leaner after putting the header on? I have a local shop that said they would remap it with a custom map for $150. Should I just go ahead and have them do it?

    Also, what kind of coolant is in these bikes from the factory? Would it be wise to flush it and refill with engine ice?

    There is a specific mapping for the full Akra system. If your dealer remaps have them show you on the computer the program. it will have the date and version thereof. Dealers have been known to install what they thought was the right map but wasn't. Charging you $150 seems excessive IMHO.

    They installed the 2012 evo1 maps when I purchased the bike and removed all the emissions crap. I believe there are only two akro maps, evo1 and evo2. The custom bike shop runs a dyno on the bike and sets up/makes a map accordingly. This normally costs 250 but since I know the guy he will do it for 150. Nearest dealer to me is 3.5 hours away so any suggestions are welcome.

    Anyone here put a "E" dash on a "R"? What all did it entail?

    I know it's kind of crazy as the E dash isn't that reliable but I've got a new one from my '08 I want to put on the '11.

    I probably need a psycologist for this... while there is no logical explanation , I just like riding with the "E" dash at night... it makes me happy... when riding alone for long periods in the darks it's my nighttime companion... my buddy!

    That's what I meant when I said I know of no other motorcycle where you can improve so much on the performance reliably for so cheap.

    Obviously $1,500 on our 690's isn't going to increase hp by a very much % (or course it's harder to go up when your already at the top :lol3). The WR450 & XR650R's can be improved a significant percentage for cheap over stock as they are so corked up.
    But nothing I know of can improve as much as the KLX...

    KTM 690 E parts needed.

    I need the complete head light assembly for a '08 E.
    Anyone have one have one for sale ?

    I could also need a set of triple clamps for the E or R , a set of
    forks for the E or R and the complete front brake system ( rotor,
    caliper, master cylinder )


    I've got a nice set of 2012 SX forks ( twin chamber ) 12" travel
    with the SX caliper, disk and master cylinder/ lever.
    This is a great set up for a rally bike.

    Might be able to help you with this part. I just switched over to a Lynx from Britannia Composites.

    I was thinking about hanging on to it for a back up in case of ...... anything, I guess.

    I'm tied up most of this week and out of town for the weekend. If you can wait until next week to sort it out, I may be able to help.

    Stupid question but where's the diagnostics connector on the bike for the tune ecu cable?

    And does anyone have the '12 Enduro Evo-1 map files they could send to me? I only see generic year evo-1 map files on tune-ecu's website and am hesitant to use those on 12 and up since the engine displacement and stock maps changed.

    It's the plug to the right of the POS terminal Red cover. It's pointing down and tucked into it's storage slot. Underneath the plug that has #2 marked on it.

    2013 690 Enduro R. Completely stock. 600 miles. Wings can at Fedex to be delivered tomorrow. :happay

    I remember some posts about setting up the bike after installing a new slip on exhaust. Not sure of the order... 1) Engine off... open throttle all the way then back off slowly. 2) Disconnect battery ? 3) Hook battery up and start. Idle 15 minutes. 4) Ride (how many Revs?) Please let me know how you did it.:deal

    Also, riding in Florida rain to work on those RalleyCross tires was not confidence inspiring. They look like a 90% dirt tire and fine for weekend dirt.
    * Looking for something better for weekday commuting on wet roads. Any thoughts on; Metzler Enduro 3 Sahara, Pirelli MT 90, Hidenau, Shinko or whatever.

    If this is not the correct forum for 690 tires. Let me know if I should go somewhere else. :ricky
