690 Seat Rubber Grommets
« on: May 02, 2013, 02:53:17 am »
Hi Guys

Just a heads up to all 690 riders please keep an eye on the Rubber Grommets under the seat.
 
They have a habit of falling out and then the seat drops and rubs on the Wiring harnes and electrical plugs.

Added to this when the seat drops it can break the clip at the  front.   

Good riding everyone.

Hi man, thanks for the heads-up. Mine haven't dropped out, but one has seen its arse already. What solution do you have for fixing them?

Just refit properly and keep an eye on them.

I have heard this has lead to the seat frame cracking.

I hope this helps.

My 2 center grommets fell off causing the front mount point of the seat to break. Seat was replaced under warrantee by Ktm.
Check those grommets!
