I'm throwing around the idea of having a second set of wheels for my 2011 690, I know nothing of wheels though.

What fits? What do I need to look for?
Is it much more complicated than just getting a couple 18/21 wheels and finding correct spacers?

Any information would be excellent.
(I am not buying anything new)

Misfire

I did a search for "misfire" and only found one result, so I apologize if this is a bit of a noob question, BUT:

Has anyone had their bike misfire and die while at speed? I had it happen 4 times the other day, all in similar circumstances. Around 5-6k RPM and on the throttle hard in top gear (so around 75-85 mph). It's like the engine burped for a second and quit firing. The FI light comes on and each time I just turned the key off and started it back up no problems and with no FI light on.


Bad injector? Spark plug? What should I check first?

Thanks

Here are the foot pegs that I put on my 690.

KTM Rally stuff


Spring safety wired and compressed. Ready for removal.

They used to be very expensive, but are now quite reasonable.

Riddle me this.

While out on a recent ride, I lost the entire plastic tail section of my 690. The fender remained, just the rear section that holds the tail light/turn signals/plate. Luckily, I found the remains and was able to salvage my plate, but the rest was irreparable. Bought me a new shiny tail light, but the turn signals I ordered from SAR were on back order and the KTM replacements (warranty) wont be here for at least 2 weeks.

The problem I need cleared up: The new tail light works properly, plugs in fine (the damaged one only pulled the wires out of the housing itself) BUT the brake light does not come on. Not sure if it is due to me not having the turn signals installed to complete a circuit ?? OR is there a fuse that popped that I am not seeing ??

With a spacer from Rally Raid you can run a 640 rear wheel...I have one on the rear of my 690 right now.



You can get nice wheels at a competitive price brand new from RAD Wheels

Woodies will make you a set of wheels too..they are just as good as the RAD stuff but will cost you a little more.



Also check the flea market and ebay as wheels come up on there.

Just a simple check, is the bulb alright? new undamaged etc... Is the bulb in correctly? It has been some time since I had a bulb back there, went to LED.

Other than making more wheels available, is there a reason/benefit to using a 640 wheel?

No, just another option..sometimes you can find the 640 wheels on ebay complete for a lot less.

I retract my previous statement. We at the NSA did in fact evesdrop on your phone records.

Was remembering that the EXC wheels did not work on the 690 for some reason.
