Ok, the 12 enduro/smc-r are known to have flashing oil-lights. Bad sensors I belive.

New sensor should sort that out.

690 Fuel Filter

I've been having a look through the standard service schedule from the 2013 690 Enduro and find it odd that cleaning or replacing the fuel filters aren't listed as a standard service item at either, 1000k, 10,000k, or 20,000k. It does mention doing a fuel pressure check so I imagine they are expecting you would pick up any issues from the pressure reading, but I think I'll go with a regular replacement of the screen and filter maybe 5,000k or at least 10,000k.

I moved my fuel filter to the outside of the tank so I can change it any time it suits ME. Without having to tear half the bike apart.

But the point has been raised and discussed and we can probably move on now ...

3,000km on the island of Borneo off road going bush enough? Out of 3 bikes, one had fan stop working which turned out to be a poor connection in the fuse box. Other than that some minor issues all fixed with a small toolkit.

I'll be doing that after my warranty period is up.

Tks Noyah - this is being worked through under warranty, and I believe that a sensor replacement is next on the list in what is essentuially a 'therapeutic trial' ...

The recommended unit is the NAPA 3095. I personally used the Purolator version. That's what they had at Pep Boys.
I believe it was a F23172

For those folks concerned about their fuel filters, I wonder if a profill filter would help?
aka "gas tank condom"

Those filters were in demand a few years ago. I bought one but the way the 690 gas tank is designed it is a major pain to try fill the tank through that filter. Also I have had the fuel pump out a few times and the plastic pre filter that fits on the pump has never had any stuff in it. Not sure if it has anything to do with where I live or what. Maybe the gas is cleaner here? I did a week in Baja and no dirt from the gas there either. I changed the filler cap to aftermarket from new so never had any dirt falling into the tank either.

Yep, but pray your hose (or clamps) will never fail, 'cause the day it fails so close to the exhaust: KABOOM !!!

Have you ever noticed the original hose route or where it clamps to the injector? Only inches from the filter. ;)

The little bracket on the kickstand got pushed down.

The other thing I did when it happened while out riding was to put the kickstand up/down a few times and try again. that usually did the trick.

Easiest to figure out where placement of the magnet should be while the bike is on a stand with the sidestand up.

Hope this helps.
