Workshop manual

Has anyone managed to get their hands on a 2012 KTM workshop manual?

It doesn't look like they make a model specific version, which would mean you would have to run separate leads for all of the monitoring and bypass the stock wiring harness. Not sure how I feel about that. Also, I'm guessing theres no low fuel indicator or Fault Indicator lamp access as well.

The FI I'm not as concerned about, but lack of LFI would be troubling. Anyone know if there's a way to rig a separate LFI lamp outside of the stock instrument cluster?

I have a stock cluster sitting on my shelf from an R model, the one without the tach signal. PM me if you're interested

I think the only one that is out is the 2008 - 2010 version. I have it from Munn Racing.

Cheers,

Another Ginger installment

Last night I installed a few more goodies.
Here is the KTM EVO Air Filter cover.
This took some modifications by me. It seems the front tabs are too long and cause the cover to flex upwards. Short work for a Rasp file. Sits nice and flat.



Rally Raid Stainless upper tank bolts installed.

Since I'm riding with other 690 riders that refuse to change them out as preventive, I'll carry my old ones with me in the tool bag. Could be worth some serious cash out on the trail
Following the idea of Mr HIX I was able to find a 140mm Grade 8.8 8mm bolt to put in the lower mount.



A pic of the Scotts shark fin installed. Serious protection. Still need to figure something out for the front. I forsee something expensive in my future.



I installed the upgrade fuel pump into the tank. Part of that job included relocating the fuel filter to the outside. Using plenty of hose I was able to put the filter in a location easily accessable for field access on trail.
NO the one clamp is not loose. I started with the small size clamp and went to the larger size on the second. Too much fight to get the small one to fit.



We got the Q-4 mounted up as well.



I'm hoping to get Ginger fired up tonight.
Still not road worthy yet. Due in tomorrow- LED Taillight/fender assembly and mounts for my GPS & Doubletake mirrors.

Didn't check them yet. The PO kept impecable records and they were done under 2000 miles ago. I want to get some riding time on my new steed. I can look at the valves at the next oil change. The oil looks pretty new presently.

vortex ecu ??

ok, I've got the vortex ecu installed with a leo vince slip on and open stock air box. Bike runs amazing except it does have some very slight surging. Once you notice it, it will drive you bonkers ( it does me ) It also has some very snappy throttle. I've been told that 30% of the TPS are bad and you have to bring it to the dealer to check the ohm's etc... Is there a way to check it out myself with a snap on meter?

Thanks for your reply's
