Don't know how the bike's electronics would react to any more amps than that though.

Just be sure your charger doesn't supply more than your alternator and you should have no problem. And make sure you have good connection to the battery before turning battery charger on.

Any ideas on whether it is OK to connect a battery charger to the 690? Do I need to disconnect the battery from the bike? Or can I leave it all wired up?

Thanks
I have a C Tek 7 phase trickle charger which has a small lead with plug supplied that attaches permanently to the battery terminals, simply flip the seat and plug in the charger to use it overnight or for longer term use if not riding the bike.

Have used it for 3 years and never a prob,,,, never a battery drama either

Is there any spring wire in there or is it easy to clean? Could it be packed flat (e.g. in a vacuum sealed bag) so you can carry a spare that's not too bulky?

Cheers,

No spring. Foam is pretty thick on the base so i dont think you would get it much smaller. As far as washing it goes, i have no idea. Its only done one ride & i haven't washed it as yet.

Good question, waiting for KTM Austria to get back to KTM Australia so i have been told. I was the head Mechanic at one of australia's leading Polaris dealerships for 10 years, I could get a response from the states in 48hrs.

It's all part of the KTM experience, the reason you pay extra

Then when you need the parts you can wait for those too.

Air Filter sealing

Yeah - ever since they sent out the K&N replacement foam filters I noticed that it doesn't want to sit properly exactly like yours. I have always been worried about dusting mine too. It's a shabby fit basically.

when i bought my 2010 model i grabbed two uni filters [pod style] straight away
fitted them up the same way i have always done on my bikes with a bit of light grease around the base of the filter then fit it up.
For my long trip across oz i bought a sheet of thin filter foam and cut out pre-filters to fit in the top of the pod filter had about 10 made all oiled up and in a clip lock bag.
I could pull up pop the seat undo the top of the box and just replace the pre-filter it was quick and easy and did a really good job very little dust on the filter
These were a throw away item and cost bugger all

Nice one Phil
I've used chucks wipes as a pre filter a few times on multiway rides works a treat and cheap

Not being rude here, but have you read the last few pages. The dusting of the engine has nothing to do with the airfilter fitment.
