The roller bearing feels fine to me. Just looks like a crap roller.
Anyone sell an aftermarket one? Maybe I should just get the evo cam to replace the existing one

Accessories

Looking at wiring a usb port into the accessories behind the headlight. Anyone done it before? Is it a big Job or is there any instructions online on how to do it?

In regards to the problem with the rollers, I remember years ago talking to David Butler, then at Butler M/C's in Lithgow, at the time he was racing Ducatis and stated that he was constantly having problems with what I think was a 998, top end, and regularily changed the cams and followers, until he started using Repsol oil, then he never had a problem again.
Has anyone looked into the problem bikes and what oil the were using?

Hey Eags, what brand power port did you use and did you use acc1 or acc2?

I fitted a ciggy lighter type power outlet from ACC 1 or 2 (the switched one) and use a twin port 2amp usb insert for connecting usb stuff. So can still use the outlet for air pump and other stuff.

Doesn`t matter which Acc circuit. My labels are well worn off anyway ,,,,
I just hardwired my GPS lead straight in, no port. I had a Garmin lead from my old unit and the 60 I got from you came with one, so I sacrificed the old one

I was going to get the Taplite USB weatherproof unit from ADVMOTO but ran out of time, they are good and well sealed.

Good Luck

Off to see if ktm will foot the bill even though its outta warranty. You can't tell me this is acceptable. What if you we're half way thru a 5000km ride?? Kaboom

Not good at all..

I have never heard of that happening to any other 690's, hopefully KTM help you out with this.

mine started to go but the mechanic found it while doing a service before it was to late and fixed under warranty - bit about it on the wunderfest thread.
While im hear my rear wheel bearing went on the weekend farked everything back there, hub, caliper, rotor , bikes under a year old , so I would be checking if I were you guys - If ya didn't love em youd hate em '-}

There have been a number of people reporting pitted lifter buckets and some reports of failed roller bearings on the followers but I don't think I have seen any cases of broken or damaged rollers.

safari tank.

OK so afternoon before the first "big" ride on the 690 and I fill up the Safari tank and the standard tank.

Problem. The safari tank keeps feeding fuel up into the standard tank and pushing it out the over flow hose on the rally raid cap.

I turned the tap off on the Safari tank and this has stopped the vacuum as such. But when I turn the tap back on again, it's the same old problem. Just for the record I filled the Safari tank first and then the standard tank after. I'm thinking I should have done it the other way round. Anyone else had this problem or have a solution?

Did you miss the suggestion in the instruction manual not to open the tap on the Safari tank until you had traveled about 100 kilometers. If you have the tap open from the start it will do just what it has done.
