    They offered to drain it, but I didn't want to ride back (40 miles) with the oil overfilled. I've got everything I need in the motor home to do oil changes, so I'll just drain out ~600ml before I ride it again.

    Not a big hassle, as long as there is no damage to the engine I'm happy.

    Everything works great! No lights and the speedo works. I can give you more info if you want. Basically 2013 KTM 690 Enduro parts.

    I am fully interested it what you did to eliminate the ABS system. I have zero need or want for ABS on my 701E, especially after I had to purposely stuff the bike on a steep rocky/stumpy downhill because it wouldn't stop. Please share, or PM if you like.

    This info would be a great candidate for its own thread with a link here to it. I’m sure many will want to be able to find it via the search feature.

    For those of you who have used the old style Heat Demon wrap heated grips... I need some advice. Mine stopped working. I wired them into ACC2 a few years ago and they have worked well since. I Checked the wiring and the fuse and both were fine. What else can fail on these things? Thanks.

    I had a set of those on a WR 250R and they worked half assed all the time. Eventually they stopped working and I never figured out why. I changed the switch out and looked for kinks in the wires but couldn't figure out what went wrong. I eventually got tired of not having heated grips so I switched to Oxford heated grips and can only say that I wished I switched sooner. They are just a much better heated grip and provide fantastic heat. I have a set of them on my 701 now and love them.

    +1 on the oxfords. they seem to work well and be very reliable. Ive used them for about 2 yrs on my 701.

    If anyone has a picture of a Fisher seat on a newer '19-'20 KTM 690, would you please post a picture and comment on your likes/dislikes?

    That narrows it down and very probably means you don't have to buy new grips. Starting with the accessory terminal you connected to, check for power all along the circuit. If it's dead, you may have blown a fuse on the bike. Then check before and after the switch, etc. A bad wire, connection, or switch has to be your issue and it has to be before the split out to each individual grip - unless they both failed simultaneously, which seems very unlikely.

    Can someone point me to a schematic of the coolant system or a post on here where someone else had the same issue. Right foots starting to get covered in coolant. It's def coming out of the overflow tube that exits by the horn. Only happens when the bike is under load, won't do it at idle. Fan comes on at what i assume is the right temp. Haven't checked the radiator cap yet. Thoughts?

    Sounds like the overflow tank is too full. Coolant should be between the two lines.
