Safari Tank fuel line quick disconnect

Hi all,
I'm trying to track down a part - the fuel lines from my safari tank are splitting at the safari tank end (likely cause I take the tank off for servicing) so looking at replacing the fuel lines. The thing is I trying to find a fuel line quick disconnect coupling to fit at the same time.

Is anyone aware of anything I could use and where I could get it from?

Maybe worth spending the dollars on one of the billet type connectors,not much dearer than the oem plastic ktm items.The plastic ones do get brittle over time.I nearly had my bike burn from a plastic one breaking off on the shoulder of the barb and dumping fuel over the exhaust headers.

A couple of questions for you who will be more knowledgable than I....

On my first big hit out on the 690R, I noticed a could of things:
1. sometimes, on starting, it would cut out after about 5 seconds. Restart no worries, and not do it again until after I turned it off. It wouldnt always do it, but often enough to be annoying. I dont think it was either the sidestand switch or NSS. I did also note that when in gear it wouldnt turn over until the clutch was pulled in, although wasnt required when it was in neutral so I guess the electrics were ok on that side of things.
2. I noticed twice that after starting, the entire dash display (I have the small dash, LED style display with no tacho) would flash about ten times, as if the computer/ECU was resetting? Would just flash about ten times, no stalling or any related issues.

Comments?

Nope,, I always was on the bike with stand up. Sometimes in gear with clutch in, sometimes in neutral with clutch out. Would start, then stop after a few seconds. Restart quite happily and keep running. An ECU glitch?

Do dealers reflash things or run some sort of diagnostics?

Do you allow the ECU to calibrate or just hit the starter

Well it is 30,000km service time and these are the results:

Changed the profill teabag filter on my fuel pump and for the first time it was pretty clean, seems that the fuel tank has stopped leaching out the grey residue that I normally see on this filter each service.
I took the opportunity to fit my spare CA Cycleworks fuel pump and now will keep the standard original as the spare.
I have my injector cleaned and flow checked each service by a mobile injector cleaning service.The injector flow rate was again down and subsequently improved by the cleaning. There was also a slight dribble when shut off but additional cleaning and pulsing in the ultrasonic bath cleared that.
I have filtered all fuel put in the bike from day one through a Mr Funnel Filter which filters dirt and water from fuel, I also have the extended billet fuel filler to prevent dirt getting in the tank when filling.
I believe this servicing and fuelling regime goes a long way to eradicating EFI issues.
The oil has only ever been changed at the recommended 7500km interval with Motorex 10/60 and no issues as yet. My exhaust valve clearances are approaching the 0.13 limit with max 3.0 shim fitted so may do a precautionary rocker arm replacement next service in case the wear is from the roller, probably change them both as I think they are premod.
Changed the steering head bearings and all wheel bearings as a precaution.
The swing arm bearings have uncaged rollers and some had worn to needle thin so changed the bearings out.
No real dramas with the Rally Raid gear except the bracket holding on the bashplate at the front had cracked in the bend radius due to several drops on the right side.
I also recently changed the clutch and springs as I had fried the clutch a couple of times.
Also recently had a front fork leak and took the opportunity for a suspension upgrade with gold valves and heavier springs.
Still got to get the rear suspension done some time soon.

So overall still bloody happy with the 690 just hope I haven't cursed myself.
Andy

I should take a look at my bearings too. Especially after seeing the condition of the bearings on my WR.
+1 for gold valves and heavier springs. Had both ends done on mine. I love how it rides now
