Fuel pump /regulator seals?

Hi Guys

I am just giving my 2008 e the once over before a trip to Morocco and plan to take a look at the fuel pump/ regulator.

I see there are 2 rubber seals - one on the fuel pump housing, one on the regulator housing - do these need replacing if you break the seal.

Parts cat says...

75007089000 SEALINGS KIT = 50 for the pair - unbelievable!

.... or can you re-use the seals and use a sealant with something?

Any advice appreciated

Cheers

Gary

If you are interested in the Wings, go to the website (www.wings.si) and e-mail direct. You should be able to get the price down to about $375 shipped.

Cheers,

I love my Wings exhaust; second be mod I've made, the first being the suspension done by Stillwell performance. I always felt the front on my 2010 690 was harsh and didn't feel planted. Alan Stillwell worked his magic adding 0.54/100 springs (front/rear). This allowed the rear to sit properly and bias more weight to the front. The valving allows the wheels to move much faster over the ground providing more traction without chatter (I can actually accelerate on washboard without the back end neither packing nor swapping). It's almost like cheating over the rocks, the boingers are super compliant, rarely deflect, and make it so I almost don't have to pick a line; just pin it and plow over the crap. On the slab all the small chop is eliminated and the bike ride is more comfortable on longer rides. A huge improvement overall and no question a must do for riders that think their 690 is a dirt bike.

On another note, I had to cut my ride short due to a coolant leak between the case and the cylinder just below the exhaust port. Anyone else see leaking there?

You need to use TuneECU or the KTM diagnostic tool to do a reset adaptation before doing the 15 minute idle. Otherwise you are just wasting time and fuel.

For the 690's, I don't believe that is correct. I believe that option is only for newer 990's...

You may be using a different style, in which your black text may look just fine. If somebody else is using ADV 2.0, your text is black on grey, so not very legible. In "Fresh" style, your text is just fine.

So it sounds like everyone is saying just replace the muffler. I thought with the price of the Remus full system it would make sense but I guess I'll go with the majority on this one. :)

Thx for all the input guys!

If you have money to burn then go ahead and replace the entire exhaust. The return on investment will be with the muffler.

I'm not so much worried about spending the cash as I am in whether a full system will effect reliability. As in will the slight increase in power burn out components sooner? Thoughts on the reliability aspect?
