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.

Sell it and buy something more reliable before it loses too much value...

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.
Why would you replace the screen, it's a cleanable part, just like the oil screens. Pull it off, hit it with some compressed air and slap it back on.

Dude – yes I could just unplug the sensor – and then do what? – look at it? – sing to it perhaps? – maybe fondle it a bit? – I don’t have a replacement sensor to swap it with, and as the bike is under warranty it would be senseless to buy one and go through the process myself – only to have KTM repeat it all at some later date if this turned out not to be the problem ...

So I think I’ll stick with plan A, and just let the KTM boys swap the sensor and see if that fixes the problem - sounds simple to me ...

Fair enough, but there's still a filter there next down the line inside the tank and filters get dirty and block, and contaminated.

I think what BD is try to say is none of the other models of 690 enduros have a oil pressure sensor so why bother with one now , It's obvious that it is stressing you out , it is not needed and it is some thing else that can go wrong , in your case has gone wrong ,
A lot of us here use the KISS method Which KTM has not , it is an Enduro bike after all.

Conversely, if the oil sensor is not in fact the problem and I remove it and the oil pressure is not maintained and ... etc etc etc ... for $16K bike under warranty this is not going to be a good course of action ...

Down the track perhaps ...

Agree re' KISS principle - might be good to somehow transfer that message back to the engineers in Austria ...

I replace my filter every time I replace the pump. Hmmm, maybe that's what they had in mind all along.

Planned obsolesce - us auto builds started in the 70's, going global.

Now if only Crankshaft would get his wiring harness out together with some nice ecu setups that eliminate all safetygadgets like clutchgrip preassure switch, sidestand switch and what not...
