Riders,

Question: Why is it that these "cheap" plastic filters are used for a pressure between 40-60 lbs psi , whereas years some years ago the BMW folks replaced their internal filters with metal-clad filters "because of the psi factor" ( ie. the filter would not explode due to pressure). I externalized the fuel filter on my 1100GS with the appropriate metal-clad filter and have not had to go into the tank to change filters.


Just wondering

I haven't read here or heard otherwise that these cheapo plastic filters have caused any problems.....

Most cars,petrol & diesel,now use plastic injection-moulded 2part filter housings,that are usually ultrasonically welded together after the filter element is put in.
The vast improvement in thermoplastic materials over the last couple of decades has allowed for the safe replacement of metal-clad filters,and other under-bonnet parts,from metal to plastic.

2010 690

Hello to all the inmates here. I have been lurking here for quite awhile reading the posts in anticipation of getting one of these amazing machine. Well I now have a "new to me" 2010 690. It has a few things done to it..... FMF Q4 slip on, Scott's stabilizer, Renazco seat. Just wondering where I should start with this beauty. Are there more pressing matters than farkling that one should start out with...mechanical issues, etc. or get right into farkling issues such as luggage racks, rear racks, lighting, etc. are there favorite vendors that people prefer and who specialize in this machine. Thanks for any and all help.

Upper and Lower Tank bolts from Rally Raid (UK) or KTMTwins here in the US.

Uni dual pod.

Sounds like it already has some nice improvements!

These bikes are a freakin' hoot.

Couple issues regarding the radiator, remove the bolts on the plastic protector and zip tie it on. Shim the rad fan shroud to keep it from rubbing holes into teh rad.

..or get the RR radiator guard. it is steel and it eliminates all attachments points to the radiator. Worth every penny when you tip the bike over.(i know from experience) New radiator = $570. RR Radiator guard = $180

2011 TPS values

I'm looking for apad/thad values for the TPS sensors on a 2011 ER. The values for 08-10 aren't applicable!

Someone must know :) Thanks!

KTMTwins has 2 types of radiator protection....a crash bar setup and the Rally Raid type that mounts around the radiator. Is one better than the other. In checking over my newly acquired 2010 690 that the radiator mounts are already bent. Would the RR protection still fit?

You might have to "adjust" the tabs some. You want the rr cage that surounds the radiator is the one you want. The screen is nice to but the stock one works fine.

Radiator guards are meant to be a close and tight fit. You could certainly get the protection and make the necessary tweeks to make the fit.

As a side note~the RR rad protector I received arrived loosely wrapped in bubble wrap, metal clanking against metal, no install instructions and was one crude piece of metal work. Edges were sharp and almost dangerous to handle - the circular cut around the radiator cap was poorly executed. I returned the lot and went for the easy to-bolt-on KTM Hard Parts unit. Many guys have been happy with the RR stuff so I may have received a part that missed the QC before packing.

With the injector still plugged into the electrical hook up a tube and airhose to the output side. Then push some air/solvent through backeards as you spin the motor to cycle the injector. I can take some pics tomorrow if it'll help.
I took it all apart and cleaned the injector with no improvement. I cut the hose clamp off at the injector housing and I get good voume of fuel but zero pressure. I guess 6000 miles out of the first pump was pretty good compared to the 400 out of the replacement.
