Just got off the line

with Justin at KTM Hutt. Sounds like the only supply of 58214070150 is in Austria. He may try to get some and post it up but as is looks like it will be to Pep Boys / Depot / Boater's World for improv match. Goody.

Baja Dave - can you speculate approximate dimensions?

That looks like it will be a good fit. Post up pics when you get it installed.

Well, took the radiator and fan over to the dealer today. They are going to talk to KTM about doing a good will warranty on it. They felt it was something that shouldn't have happened and that it wasn't my fault. Now just have to wait and see what KTM NA has to say.

Guys, have you got a link to a post in which it is shown how to dismantle the bike, how to get to the radiator to fix it?

(I know, stupid question, I'm just a really poor mechanic living 200km away from a KTM dealership...)

Thanks in advance!
Jacek

Jacek makes a good point. There still isn't a service manual available for this bike. Anyone at KTM listening?

Well, I don't have any pics but it is fairly straight forward taking the rad off.

You can see here on the microfiche and exploded view http://www.ktm-parts.com/pdf/KTM2008/2008_690END.pdf


First remove the front fender.
Take out the two bolts that hold the radiator protector #24 off.
Take out the bolts on the two lower brackets.
Just loosen the bolts in the two upper brackets

You should be able to swing the radiator forward enough to get to the fan housing.

Take out the bolt that is on the top of the fan housing #33
pull up and then back on the fan assembly and you should be able to see any damage.

Thank you Albie! Will try to work it this weekend.

By the way, I read about some sensor grinding into the back of the radiator that might need fixing. Does it ring a bell? Can this be verified during same operation?

Cheers!
Jacek

Thanks for the tips guys. I took a piece of carb vent hose, cut a slit down the middle, and super glued it to the fan housing. Basically, same fix that BajaDave made, except I used carb tubing.

Just finished checking mine. 2008 690e is new to me but PO put 1800 miles on it.

Pulled fan back from radiator and absolutely no sign of rubbing. Decided to leave well enough alone and move to the next thing. Will be checking periodically.

Hey guy's
Just checked and fixed mine.. dumm ass's at ktm
I think that letting anything rub on the radiator is a poor fix
the radiator is made of soft metal's that will not hold up to rubbing
the best fix is to remove about and 1/8" of plastic where it's rubbing
and space the top bolt out about 1/8".
I'm going to talk to my ktm guy about warranty on the radiator
my has about 3000 miles and the wear is pretty bad
If you or some you know owns a 690 this issue has to be fixed or
it will leak at somepoint

For whatever reason, the listed price for the approximately 24 inch piece of protector in KTM's USA database is about $115, but that is a known glitch in the system

Bad KTM the O rings for the 990 fuel pump are $53 and the pinchy
filters are $150

It 's easy to split some fuel line of the right size and use it.

Mine had minor rubbing after 6k miles. It looks like I got lucky. Until I can find some weatherstripping for a permanent fix I added a flat washer between the rad and the fan at the upper mount for the fan. This moves it away from the radiator enough that there's no contact.

Remove the left-hand side plastic and the fan's visible. I removed the two lower rad mounts so that I could swing the radiator forward a bit for more room to inspect it. Then using a 10mm wrench you can remove the top screw for the fan. Getting the washer in there and the screw reinstalled was a puzzle. I used long, thin needle nose pliers to drop the washer in from the top (a 1/4" flat washer), and then pressed the fan against the rad to hold it in place. I used the needle nose again to hold the screw until I could get it started.

Start to finish you should be able to get it done in 15mins or so. It's better than nothing & I didn't want to chance it getting worse.
