I bought one a while back from Wayne Leonard's in Cairns, not sure what brand but it was indistinguishable from OEM, in stock, and reasonably priced.

Don't know if they'll post to brisbane, but worth a try.

I'm hoping about 340km but there are wide ranging ideas depending on your set up, exhaust , map, trim stting etc so I will just have to ride it and see.
I'm hoping not to carry a bladder on the APC Rally even if I have to fill the bash plate tank with fuel as it holds an extra 2.5 litres.

That's 15.8km/l with 21.5 litres on board. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I've read in other threads you would have to be flogging it in deep sand with the thirstiest set-up possible to be thinking that, no?

I can consistently get 5.5l/100k so yeah, I reckon you may crack 400k with a fairing on.

i managed 300km with 9.5 litres up from and 12 in the rear during one stage on the safari...that was with a richer fuel map and lots of wide open throttle.

Finished my fuel system mods today so this is the final set up.
Removed internal filter from tank and fitted Gates submersible fuel hose to both pump pressure and cooling flow lines in the tank. Fitted the profill filter to the pump inlet. My Rally Raid tanks feed via a Honda on/off tap to a ballards sintered bronze cleanable low pressure filter before feeding into the pump base of the main tank. Pressurised fuel feeds out of the tank to a 10 micron Purolator filter P/N F29160 (ebay from USA - equivalent to Canam filter) installed as per the pic below so it can easily be accessed on the trail and replaced. Fuel then goes to the injector which has an inline last chance KTM filter P/N 78141013044, hope it all works.

Just to add more data, I got exactly 265km from full to engine stopped with the stock rear tank, cruising bang on 100kmh on the highway.

Chris Barnes clutch and alternator covers

I received the following from Chris.

If anyone out there in the outback wants some KTM 690 (new FI LC4) clutch and alternator covers I now do a Kevlar reinforced carbon set, and they are full covers--please see the Europe forum--vendors for pics--these are a lot cheaper to send!--I never got around to doing anything for the old LC4--and its a bit late now!--especially as the tank hits before the covers on the Adv.!

If you are interested then please get in touch via e-mail at chrisbarnes1@yahoo.com . PayPal works--but all I need is a postal address.

So we could then say 265km/12.5l x 21.5l = 455.8km, say about 450kms allowing for the can't get to fuel in the RR tanks. That means for me next year, aiming to get 480kms between fuel 2 stops, I will definitely need extra fuel.
Very useful information thanks

I'm glad you did that because the only time I am able to ride like that on the highway is when I am afraid I won't make the next servo

Flashers

I still can't get my flashers to work since I put the RR fairing on - no response whatsoever.

Can someone confirm there is no separate relay on a 2010 690r? and has anyone got any ideas for a fix?

Fuse is ok, wiring looks ok, neither side lights up at all, switch should be ok because not touched, oem flashers don't work and nor do the new leds on the fairing. I'm stuck

No worries! I've also only ever had one chance to do the test, 350km of traffic free outback highway with zero towns to slow me down. Hopefully I never have to do that again, at least not on the stock seat.

On a related note, yesterday I ran out of fuel *6.3km* after the reserve light came on. WTF?!

Has that ever happened to anyone else before? Any idea what went wrong/how I can fix it?

This happened to me when a wire under the shroud broke. Perhaps a connector has pulled loose?

Check your speedo connections as there are two three pin plugs and you may have connected them the wrong way, try swapping them.
I did a a couple of mods on the fairing plate to prevent the vibe issue you experienced. Added a support angle and trimmed the edge to give clearance to the fairing and used some fuel hose with a split down it and silastic to edge it. I figured it would absorb a side impact and stop the plate puncturing the fairing.

Cockpit is taking shape, fabricated a plate to mount my usual shit without wrecking any of the standard Rally Raid Dashboard, it just lays over the top and picks up existing fasteners. Wired in both GPS's , UHF and fitted Ballards heated grips plus 12volt power outlet hard wired direct to the battery, Mirrors are dual star ones from Ballards.
Risers are Rbotts an ADV inmate, as the fairings push the ignition block back 10mm I found I needed a longer link arm for the Scotts stabiliser and Rbott is getting one for me from the US. Still waiting for my Touratech racks so I can do the back end but Catman bought his up on Saturday and we scoped out how we could mount tool tubes on the racks. James gets married next weekend so I guess I have to give it a break,
