Can anyone shed some light or forward the warranty information on what IS and IS NOT covered in the factory warranty on the '12 bikes?

This is the first bike I have ever owned while still under factory warranty and I don't want to get taken to the cleaners and forced to pay for on B.S***t dealer charges for repairs, fault code reading, weak battery/charging system issues the dealer will bill KTM NA for.

Does anyone have a scan of the warranty on these bikes they could forward?

Digging this bike like none I have ever owned before!!

You really should call a dealer. I have a 2012. The warranty is 1 year and covers everything except consumables and maintenance. Mine had a low oil pressure light start coming on. They had the bike two weeks before and replaced a lot of parts trying to find it. Turned out during the first service, they installed a 2011 oil filter by mistake. No problem other than the light, but make sure they use 2012 parts as there have been changes. Seems the shop manuals are not available yet in the US for some reason as well.

How about your tool kit? That was in that messenger bag too.

Is there an organized repository for the 690 similar to the HOW 950/990 one at http://ktm950.info?

I own 690rider.com and I would be happy to offer it as a domain name and cover the cost of the domain.

good Idea. As the 690 starts getting older it would be great to have a site that lists and then explains how to fix things...How to do valve adjustments for dummies (me) would be an excellent first item!

I'm too busy to build the site, but I'm happy to help make it happen. Maybe do a decal/t-shirt sale to raise a few bux to cover the hosting. My Wife can do the decals and I have a t-shirt source. Seems like a win win for everyone.

Who wants to make a logo?

Cool2 In the cold northern winter....

It's the start of december. Temperature outside where I live is currently -18,6 celcius.
So I was warming myself with looking at some videos from this summer.
Figured some of you guys might also need a reminder of summers fun

So here's a youtube link to some of my riding from the Norwegian rally "Bukkerittet" (or "the Buckride rally").

http://youtu.be/gIfxG5UaJwc
PC only (sorry to those reading on pad or phone)

BTW! Looking forward to a dedicated 690 site!
