Dirty, if I can do it anyone can. I did it by myself but it would be easier to have someone else help. Make sure you have it on a centerstand not a swingarm lift. Dont ask how I know this...

yes. Or, if you can get it back in, you might try putting the other bolt in.. sometimes you can "switch" which one tightens... and which one comes loose.

Yep. The front doesnt really matter but you need to have the rear off the ground.

No, the stiffer spring comes with a specially machined KTM OEM alloy collar, our Stainless Collar is available seperately.

Well after over 26K miles my Regulator finally crapped out.
Ordered up a new Super Mosfet from Jack.
This winter I am going to open up the top end and do some preventive parts replacement. Roller rockers, piston and rings.

KTMMitch, will you have the bigbore kits available by then?
You mentioned them some time ago along with a billet clutch cover.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks

Basically you put it back in and then try tightening and loosening the bolts opposing each other until you get the one in question to come loose. The impact wrench is simply one option when you attempt to loosen the bolt. My 08 was the same way I had to fight it back and forth until I got the bolt on the left hand side to loosen.

Should one apply anti-seize to these? On a related note, I need to remove a mangled rear brake lever and noticed that this bolt had a little corrosion on it. It came off easy enough though.

Hmmm, though I have no interest, for the harder to please group I wonder if the 2013 full 690 top end fits on the earlier bottom?

Wiring scheme show a list of 44 wire/pins into the EFI unit on the 690. But shows them as a flat line of 1,2,3,....,43,44 positions, but the EFI unit has two rows of what should be 22+22.

Anyone knows how is aligned?

1,2, ...,21,22
23,24..., 43,44

??

maybe i'm missing something obvious, but couldn't find further info on it.

Need to verify continuity between a connector and the EFI unit and i'm trying to avoid stripping the harness
