Of course, I carry spare fuel pump, filter, injector, hose, ect. I think I am a bit more prepared to work on the 690 then the guy in that report.
It was the fuel pump that was causing the problems (I see Rod [the KTM rider] has a 2008 like you. Once the pump was changed it ran sweetly again.
On another subject:
Can I ask you what tyre pressures you've been running? I recently put the rally raid evo1 tanks on the front, which makes things heavy - just wondering how your tyre tread is wearing.
