KTM 690 R Error Code 90

After a couple of months lay up I started my KTM 690 up with no issues and let it slowly warm up. I then took it on a test ride but only got 100m before it started over revving on tickover and misfiring.

Back in the garage I noticed the FI light blinking and sure enough every time I switch it on it comes up with a code 90 with is Throttle position circuit failure.

The bike will start but wants to over rev holding the throttle shut against the stop alleviates this a bit.

Doesn't seem to be any caught cable and throttle operates fine.

Should I get it checked out on a diagnostic machine at a dealership or attempt to strip down where the cables go into the throttle position sensor on the right hand side of the FI unit.

All opinions gratefully received.

Matt

690 error code

Good advice on the error code. My friendly dealer mechanic at Gear 4 may be able to spare a few minutes to chat--or I could ask him personally if you are stuck. It may be something simple like turning on the ignition and operating the throttle to the stop a couple of times, and then trying a start--could have lost a setting if the battery has died or been removed?

Regards, CB

Matt,

I thought Error Code 90 referred to Porr Riding ability or so Clive tells me?

Tell him it can't be that Steve otherwise all my other bikes would be exhibiting the same symptoms.

I was going to ask Clive as he has experience of 690 issues.



On second thoughts maybe not !

You have been riding quite a bit together with Clive, so probably your bullshit filter is clogged.

try the 15 min idle,start bike from cold without touching the throttle and let it run for 15 min,also try with ignition on but engine off slowly twist the throttle wide open then slowly close it,both things re-set sensors

look in new and improved ktm690 wunderfest
