Ktm 690 - throttle body / sensor problem
Hi Guys,

This is my first post and unfortunately is a post to ask the KTM 690 community is someone can give me a help.

My bike a ktm690 R, year 2010 often decide to detach the THROTTLE BODY from the ENGAIN.

This is a situation that occurs only on off road and normally (but not always) when Iím slowin down.

I believe this is the result of sending fuel to the engine when the valves are closed, or, other options, is sending fuel in excess, which results in such a violent return of gases, capable to take out the phalange who join the engine to the throttle body.

Has anyone experienced this same evil in yours KTM 690R.

I honestly believe this problem is not isolated and someone already solved it.

But how? This is the question.

Until I can show you a small video, the problem seems at least very similar.

Sorry for this English, Iím not fluent as Iím Portuguese.

I will thanks you all for your possible contribution.

All the best
Pedro BC

I think I have put this topic in the wrong place (this is not a V-twin)

Can anyone put it in its proper place, I think should be in the Thumpers.

Thanks and sorry.
