I am always standing, that's why I do not have a problem with the standard seat . Never burn a hole in my pants.

Common enough I burned suits, boots and skin.

Restarting a drowned 690?

Restart procedure for a drowned 690? Is there any easy way to get to the plug, seems like it would be a bit of a PITA to get to if you had to pull it to blow the water out.

I just finished moving out of my apartment and both bikes are currently residing in my garage...a 2004 Sprinter van...very good for sprinter snow traction. I turned the key on the 690 to see where the battery is at and it came right to life and cranked no problem. It has a Shorai battery and the bike has not been Run since last June.

Cheers.

What apart from tyre changing tools would you add to the standard KTM toolkit if wanting to keep it to a minimum for day trips? If the worst happens and it's not a quick fix then wont be too far from home and breakdown cover will get me there type of thing?
