4. The piece of line that was removed from the tank/disconnect is now from the filter to the injector.

I hope that helps.
Isn't the fuel filter there for the pump, not just the injectors?

Not possible, the pump is at the very start of the line. The screen protects the pump.

Oh.. I'm not getting rid of my Ape. It is retarded fun. Just as practical and as bulletproof as a 690.

I've been thinking of selling my 690 and getting an Aprilia 550. A friend has one that has 3 sets of wheels (2 pair SM wheels, and 1 pair custom-laced dirt wheels which use the SM brakes) as well as all the motor updates, and a very trick adjustable front axle clamp which fixes the "too little trail" issue.

So many bikes to own, so little time (and money)...

I hear Aprilia 550 and I think...ride, rebuild, ride, rebuild, ri-rebuild.

I mixed water and oil during the 2010 Wild west rally (rallymoto) in Washington. Then I had it rebuilt when I was in California at Longbeach Aprilia by Amauri Nunez. (Former Aprilia USA supermoto lead mechanic when they won pikes peak in 09). That was 2k miles ago and she runs good.

Anyway, my $.02

The SXV is has amazing power, sound, looks, and fun factor. Since my rebuild, I have not had any problems. I wouldn't attempt a RTW trip on it though
The 690 you sacrifice some in the "cool" factor but you more then make up for in reliability.

Really? What could possibly be cooler than an orange chromo trellis chassis filled with a stonking 690cc lump, suspended by WP, and stopped by Brembo?

70 HP fire breathing, 280lb twin with Italian breeding, suspended by Sachs and stopped by BETTER Brembo parts. I still regret getting rid of it sometimes, but there aren't any tracks around where I live now, and the SXV was really born to be ridden on a track.

Yeah, what he said. Less weight, more power, what's not to like?

Honestly, I rarely use my 690 off-road, and only put about 5k miles per year on it. The Aprilia 550 would be better for the things I actually use the 690 for, but worse for the things I wish I had time, physical fitness, close/easy access to, i.e. the bitchin long-distance adventure riding like the Mojave Trail. But it would do them.

I have been getting messages..

Ok. I found some pictures from my 2010 from when I relocated the fuel filter. Hopefully this helps clear up any confusion.


A picture of the longer piece of hose from the tank to the filter. The Blue heat shrink is just to protect he hose from rubbing on the tank bolt and zipties.


A picture of the filter and loop. (I used a metal NAPA filter on this bike) I think there are pros and cons to the metal or plastic filter. I do like being able to see the element in the plastic filter.

Team- My '12 is going in for it's 1k checkup (2k miles on the odo actually) on Dec. 10th and I have a few questions.

I bought the bike used with a hair over 800 miles on her. All of the normal documents, papers, owners manual, warranty information and things normally included in the briefcase were water damaged due to some flooding in the previous owners carport. All of this printed material was thrown out.

Can anyone shed some light or forward the warranty information on what IS and IS NOT covered in the factory warranty on the '12 bikes?

This is the first bike I have ever owned while still under factory warranty and I don't want to get taken to the cleaners and forced to pay for on B.S***t dealer charges for repairs, fault code reading, weak battery/charging system issues the dealer will bill KTM NA for.

Does anyone have a scan of the warranty on these bikes they could forward?

Digging this bike like none I have ever owned before!!

Dirty
