    Doesn't entirely sound like its coming from the top. Dropped bike off at moto shop, as don't have the time right now. He'll pull it apart and check rockers, cam chain, tensioner, etc. - hoping he finds it quick and gets me back on the road again. Was colder today when I dropped it off, so only warmed up 2 bars. Not as much noise and for the rest, running fine.

    Thanks Steven! :thumb

    So the way I read it:

    Cluster (32-pin)->Remote (4 wire)
    18 ->1-> permanently connect to a chassis ground
    02 ->2-> UP (temp connect to ground when button pushed)
    21 ->3-> DOWN (temp connect to ground when button pushed)
    19 ->4-> MODE (temp connect to ground when button pushed)

    Does that look right? Is your information from a 990?

    I checked these pin numbers against the 2012/13 690 Enduro R P10 Combination Instrument (Display) 32-pin wiring shown the the '13 shop manual wiring diagram. What I find is:

    Cluster Pin
    -------------
    18 = currently unused
    02 = used, orange wire, ground
    21 = currently unused
    19 = currently unused

    Pin "02" (2?) concerns me because is is being used currently as a ground, so that would probably not work as the UP button.

    Thoughts from the collective?

    These are all the pins currently populated on my 2013 display (P10) connector)

    Some of the following may not apply because it is for a 2008 690E which has a similar (same?) instrument as current model 690's. Maurizio did a very nice installation of a TrailTech Vector on his 2008 690E which was documented in the old MegaThread and recently redone at Maurizio's Vector Installation. He gives the following pin out's:

    Pin 2 - Ground
    Pin 4 - FI fault Light
    pin 7 - Fuel Reserve Light
    pin 11 - Neutral Light
    pin 12 - High Beam Light
    pin 15 - Ground

    This doesn't have much to do with the Trip master application except to confirm that on the 2008's , pin 2 is ground. High Beam light is on 12 rather than 8.

    Thanks for the part number for the sprocket. This brings up a problem I'm having that maybe you all can help me with. When I go to KTM-Parts and go to open the different catalogs, like sprockets, what happens is the image of all the sprockets will be there for literally a second, and then the page is blank. Doesn't matter which catalog I try to open-it's the same.

    I'm using IE10, but have had the same results with Google Chrome.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Hey all,
    Apologies for just chiming in here with a q, but it's semi-related to all the 690 pics posted in this thread (and my q doesn't warrant a full thread haha):

    The stock 690E mirrors are "ok", semi-usable when they're not vibrating to hell. Anybody have a good aftermarket mirror setup that works well but is less obtrusive / tucks away when offroad? Thanks in advance.

    +1

    I've got the longer RAM mount (only because I was leant / given them) and will change to shorter at some stage ...

    +1 on the doubletake mirrors.
    I have them on all my bikes.

    Sent from outside my mind.

    I like doubletakes but if you have HDB hand guards their integrated mirrors are great.

    I prefer these they fold out of the way quickly and look less funky, good at speed.

    Speaking of mirrors, if you swap left for right you end up with about 1" less height on them...not quite so drastic looking.

    For those of you that have disabled your roll-over switch, this may be a asobering story. Bear in mind that Gary was riding a 500 EXC, so not sure if that had a roll-over switch or not. I'll be riding with his club this weekend and wish him a speedy recovery. He was about to trade his 990 for a 690, hope he gets to do that some day.

    "Gary apparently tagged a tree with his right bars, which in turn sent him over the bars. Unfortunately his bike landed on him and commenced to devour him with a stuck throttle. Once the dust cleared and he was attended to by his fellow riders, he had burn marks on his hand and forearm down to the bone. He also got a huge, bone-deep gash from his shoulder down to his elbow and it sounds like the brake disc did that damage. He lost a huge amount of blood, but his fellow riders were able to get him attended to and he was eventually flown to hospital in Portland."<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    Turns out that 14/42 will not fit a chain (116 links) which is needed for 14/48. However, 15/48 and 16/48 (same as stock) will. Gives lots of choices and changing the front sprocket is easier than changing the rear.
