Have you changed maps? There's one on the Vortex with a "softer" initial throttle that works well.

Map changes don't really make a difference, it's a lot like a touchy has pedal

Maybe it's the newer updated ecu but the softer initial throttle map definitely made a difference. Doesn't cure everything but the power was more manageable on trails.

Now had two occasions of the FI light showing up, not blinking any pattern, but glowing solid. Only when bike is in gear. If I put it in neutral it goes away. Turned off and restarted and both times it didn't come back. Anyone know what impending doom I might be facing?

You need to turn the key on/ engine off for it to blink for codes. Then go from there.

Therein lies a problem. Solid when engine running, nothing when ignition on and engine off

Just a little follow up....

I thought I would report back on my airbox mod after a thourough testing. I've put about 3,000 miles on the 690 since I made this change and all is well. No movement of the airbox is noticable (no rub marks).

I'm calling it a big success and recommend that KTM take notice and add it to the 2013.

No offense but go ride 100 miles of single track and tell me if the map change works. Yes, it helped a little but the problem is the spring tension on the t-body

I have set the map select switch to soft but have not messed with the Vortex settings. The bike just gets a little jumpy in rough sections.

I wondered where everyone who messed up their maps hung out.

Now I know.

I would look at voltage levels of running system. Could be battery/voltage regulator issues.

I got a VORTEX about a month ago. I'm really happy with the result. However, for heavy off-road I bought the ultimate accessory for my 690R: a KTM 250 SX-F.
