whilst working on the bike i saw that the fan housing also rubs on the coolant hose at the lower RH corner of the fan.

i filed a bit of the plastic away to get clearance.

might be worth adding.

Disabled the captcha for now until I figure out why it's complaining.

Spammers hit already so the captcha's back on. I have finals this week so I'll dig into why the captcha isn't working soon™

Fixed the captcha socket issue. Reverse proxies are blah.

Anyway. Enjoy!

There is some very useful information regarding the changes in triple clamp/ axle lug offset changes from the 08-11 model vs 12+ model year 690's and how it affects turning radius here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=890515

with a good diagram to show the differences too!:

And the 2011 as well...



Cleaned up my drawing after re-checking measurements
and above are the steering sweep angles for the combinations
of years and triple/fork combinations readily available.

Whelp after a move, and internet issues and then server hardware issues we look like we're back online. Sorry for the outage everyone! I am collaborating with my brother to get some sort of hot replication between our servers in the future to be outage resistant.

I noticed the source links on http://ktm690.info/index.php/Valve_Check have all changed to some unrelated address, seems like the work of a bot or someone who wants to boost his website

Also when I check the edit history, a lot of crap has been posted as well
for example http://ktm690.info/index.php/A_Spotl...sale_Solutions

F'in spammers. I've been a lazy whore with the wiki for awhile and I think it's time for some lovin'. I have a backup I made awhile ago and I'll compare it to what's on there now to migrate any related information over. I think I'll also be turning off posting and will have to do it myself and/or will disable account creation and will make that a manual process to avoid the hordes of spammers.

It's also somewhat time for a valve check on the bike and I'll make sure to get pictures this time and will try for a video.

My knee is also now good enough to actually bend it too (had open-knee surgery in October) which makes working on the bike a pleasant experience.

I did a valve check this weekend and added some pictures and descriptions, and cleaned up the spam, so that page should be good to keep as is :)

Alright made a backup of everything and the wiki's going down for a bit.

OK that went smoother than expected. We're back up and I've cleaned up all the spam. I've also locked it down so no one can update except users, but no one can create users except me (the spam bots were getting through the user creation captchas). So the good news is when updating there are no more captchas.

So if anyone wants an account to make edits let me know. Or just send me whatever you want me to put up.

Can you not see the pictures when not logged in? You should be able to. If you were checking a few minutes ago I hadn't re-uploaded all the pics yet.

Because the spam was so extensive I had to basically copy the content off and nuke everything and start over from scratch so there are no user accounts that were there before.
