Question for the 690 guru's
« on: May 23, 2015, 10:54:44 am »
KTM 690 2012 model. So while riding, the gauge looses power and the F1 light comes on. I know the F1 light flashes in a morse code. I know these bikes are known for rattling out sensor switches as well. Several sensors are there for emission control and it is recommended to bypass a couple of them to avoid future problems. Who has done this and what is up with the gauge?

You most likely simply have a loose earth.  Check battery connections and the common earth on the frame.  If those are fine, 2 things, the brown plug from the stator or the voltage regulator.

The rectifier was moved, so I hope it is a faulty connection. Where I earthed on the frame, I made sure to clean it nicely before attaching. I honestly don't think it's that simple, but hope that it is.

My rev counter isn't working properly and not going through the start up sequence when you switch the ignition on .
