Tilt switch, I think?

It cuts the engine when the bike falls over a certain amount of degrees, as a F.I. engine would rev even upside down, unlike a carb model.

Hi Amsterdam
Can you still push your forks through the triple clamps with that scotts damper set up.
I'm interested in a damper but I have lowered my bike slightly and I'm not sure if the damper would fit.
Cheers

ThumperDumper - The damper and bracket do not affect the movement of the forks through the triple clamps at all.  The damper will still fit.

Ktm folding mirrors is a huge improvement over the stock units and the touring screen takes allot of pressure off the chest and cruising 120+ is just awesome now. Worth every cent.

That's not too bad, did you get a shorter brake lever and how long is the new lever?
I bought a set from China that was supposed to be shorter but ended up being the same length.
They only cost about R250 for the set so I'm not to worried.

It is interesting you mention this, I find the same.  My 690 is considerably more fuel economical than the 701 at similar type of riding.  Figures not very different from the above.

So after the Parys trip i did notice some light dust color in the airbox and that was with a unifilter and lots of grease. After close inspection you can clearly see that the plastic top part "lid" bowing in the centre so i made this 2mm steel flange to keep it from bending. Will see if it helps.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170612/672f08d853210e06e70351096aa8c6d6.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170612/921fc9ecd8bf3755c6d2d1ef68d4984b.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170612/c06d81ca4febd90d5dcd9cb34bb9120c.jpg)

Wow I have been think about doing this for a few weeks now. Please let us know if you can make a few more of those. How well does it fit with the air box lid where it clips in.

Post by: MXDURO on June 13, 2017, 09:39:31 pm
You have to press it down and in a bit but with some practice you get the hang of it. I had to trim the filter top corner at 45 degree about 5mm. With the extra pressure on the filter i cannot see it passing dust again. Will test as soon as i get a chance to ride in the dirt again.
Will work out a price for a few sets.

I have asked Factory racing if i need to load the evo map for this setup and was told it is not necessary if i keep the std lid on the airbox. Will phone Trax ktm in Pta today and ask them.

I'm a brand new owner of a second-hand 690, having reluctantly sold my 990 in favour of something more maneuverable.

I am astounded by the poor design and quality of the airbox on the 690. In fact, in general, by comparison with the 990, there's a distinct whiff of curry in the air. The 990 is built and runs like a Rolls Royce.

Anyway, c' est la vie.  MXDURO, please can you put me on your list of those needing one of your elegant steel brackets.

Merci

Guys, i have made only 10x airbox flanges sending them in tomorrow for a bit of Ktm color.
R150 each and you get 2x s/s button heads bolts with. You also need to trim/cut away the airbox lid support tabs for the flange to be installed.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170614/b92610d53e562c4bd6be146d4332bdb2.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170614/01a52035deff85b4a76329721d88405d.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170614/4f64d646d3cf518f584a3ca3e86d91d2.jpg)
