I like this idea since it removes the possible failure of the QD's I was questioning in prev post.

Any ol' fuel hose clamp do on the barbed ends of filter?

Sure like the idea of a clear housing but I suppose the glass may be damaged too easy.

replace filter and pump before they fail?

Guys, these fuel filter and pump issues are scary to me, I have some multi-day trips planned early 2013, where a failure would be extremely disruptive and costly, and I have only 11k km on my 2011 690R... would anybody recommend changing these before they fail for such trips? I dont know if I have the skills to do it myself in the garage, let alone on a trail somewhere. I have never used "low quality" fuel (only used it in france), so perhaps I can feel safe for another few thousand km? Maybe something to plan for the upcoming 15k service in a few months? thanks for any advice.

I'd say most of the issues are with 08 models , the pump swap is real easy , if you can take off the front wheel you can change the pump. There are a couple of post and check YouTube .

The only issue with swapping out the fuel pump is the fuel pissing out on the floor. If you have the do a replacement trailside you might end up with a serviceable pump and no fuel. Better do it in advance.

Thumb Problem found!

I bet it's just too close to the Honda I finally had to park the DL650 and the Sporty in between the 690 and the Ascot. Otherwise they would just bicker all the time.

When I had the same symptoms you did, it was a small leak in the line. Plenty of volume, and no pressure.

Now can you get it back together for ANF this weekend?

Also curious - anyone carry a spare quick connect (fuel line) piece as part of your parts/tool kit? Heard they may prone to failing.
I replaced mine with a better made one. I think I got it from Beemer boneyard? In NJ.

The last thing I would do is spend more $$ on the same cheap POS that KTM put in there to begin with.

I disagree. My 08 had 30k miles on the original pump/ filter.

Carry a spare, just in case, but if it ain't broke, don't "fix" it.

Mine died at around 12K miles, the replacement's still going after 15K

Billet 2-piece clutch cover

We have designed a 2-piece clutch cover to suit the 690 Enduro & SMC,enabling the clutch pack to be changed with removing the whole clutch casing.
This is a shot of the prototype model being CNC machined to try on the bike before production in billet.

Brilliant ! Who better to solve this issue than Rally Raid - Bravo !
The big question is - will this (the inner detachable clutch cover) be stronger than stock ? Which models/years will this fit ?
Can you provide info re pricing and availability ?

....Now if only I hadnt just ordered a stock replacement....

Yes, will buy this, especially if it prompts Rekluse to make an auto clutch.

it has been explained with pictures, part numbers , hints and how to's in this thread many times. It really is quite simple and a little reading will help you over this weak link on the 690.
If you read deeper you will find the other solutions for other problems too.
