Ignoring this advice makes absolutely no difference.
Im guessing KTM doesnt want the sharp edges of the clutch plates to be the ones digging into the clutch basket. This would make sense to a mechanic.

Please explain in more detail.

It's the HUB that they rest against, not the basket - I'm assuming KTM are referring to the steel plates, as they are the ones that have been punched out.

KTM dose not state which way up they all should be, just that they should all be in the same direction. If they dig in, they will do so whether installed facing in or facing out.

It may not be perfect, but it has saved me literally thousands of dollars in addition to this forum in labor bills at a dealership. I'd rather deal with some inconsistencies win the repair manual than the incompetence of one of the local dealers I have had the displeasure of taking my bike to.

I agree there are several inconsistencies. But overall, it is a valuable resource and our wit allows us to (hopefully) pass over the mistakes or translation errors.

The clutch plates may be just to give people direction to follow. "Aaah which way do these go?!"

Some items I feel are missing in the 690 book:
-No spec on the bore ovality on bore
-No spec for wear for wrist pin / wrist pin hole dia? "Check parts for excessive wear" is weak.
-No spec on crank runout
-No piston ring orientation requirements
-No ring gap for each ring
-Timing chain inspection is..?
-990 manual has oil pump axial clearance but not 690 manual
