Slavens Racing Vid

Thanks for all your great work!
There is a video by Slavens Racing on 690 rear shock removal here.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEtDU...layer_embedded

Might be a good addition.

Definitely, though mediaWiki doesn't support embedded video natively which means I'll have to find an extension for embedding video.

A quick item for the HoW might be dealing with the very water permeable connectors.

I found after crossing a creek that the gauge would go blank and the engine would die. A fuse had blown, but would continue to blow.

On the side of the trail I started pulling electrical connections - the black, triangular connectors seem very prone to picking up water. All were filled with silty creek water. A road side dry out worked well enough to get me home.

A healthy dose of dielectric grease and self stick silicone tape over the connections is my solution. I have not gone back to the creek for a test though.

About "KTM Windshield Install"

Thanks to TheMuffinMan for his great work.
A minor remark: I installed this windshield recently on my 2012 690, and I didn't get any problem with the "cutout" (it fitted perfectly). Anyway, it's better to double check before using it.

Yes-if any of you install the black "690 Touring Windscreen" do not rely on the paper template to drill your holes. Rather carefully place the Windscreen on the front mask, mark the hole locations, THEN drill the holes.

This Touring Windscreen does look more "Factory" and more angular offering a bit more wind protection, but I still feel when I have the Laminar Lip, bought years back, for the 640A gives a wider (off my shoulders) and slightly taller wind shadow when mounted while at speed.

Anyone have a good how-to relocating the fuel filter / fuel filter options?

Great work here, MuffinMan.

It will be so nice to have a clean and organized reference site.


Thank you.

I have a few things to put up, should get it all updated in the next few days.

Soon™, I'll open up the wiki so anyone can post, edit, or change things. I'm just having issues™ with setting up antivirus for file uploads to the wiki.

Added Uller's fuel pump & filter writeup!

Also contacted the guy who runs BlakeBlog to see if we can put his stuff on the wiki.
