Zacappa it will take more than this to convert me to a Braaap XR 650 but it's getting close!
How's your hands's starting issues?

Bike is running like dream after new injector and fuel pump, BUT !! When she gets hot she stalls intermittently  under low rpm?
Mine did exactly the same and was due to low compression. After inspection big end was also shot. After piston change and big and small end bike 100%.

Yes! Don't chuck the old injector - you can clean them. Keep as a spare. I think the stalling is a separate issue - valve clearances right?

Remove the small fuel filter at the injector and see if it runs better

Same happened to mine (also to the previous owners)

Had the tank flushed properly, new filter and cleaned the injector  - problem solved.

Then went and wrote off the bike on the next trip in the mountains.

I crimped new lugs on the 2 wires that fire the coil.
Change the map from wild child to standard.
Do the 15 min idle and the throttle calibration.
Had no shit for months.
Don't give up on the 690 boeta.

Compression and valve clearances all perfect. Mechanically everything is still good and we'll within spec's.
Has anyone used the Booster Plug that changes the air fuel mixture by intercepting the signal for the intake Air Temperature & telling the ECU that it's 20į cooler than actual ambient temperature?

I have it fitted on my 990. Smoothed out the snatchy throttle(which is why I fitted it) and gave me a very slight improvement in fuel consumption.

May the bridges I burn light the way...

Well folks, I am genuinely chuff,   got my bike back from KTM Durban last week, did +- 230 kms running around without any issues.
Then did a ride of 450kms on Saturday of all you types of terrain on dirt.
My bike went like a steam train, best power and throttle response I have ever experienced.

Thanks must go to Wayne & his team at KTM Durban for all his patience and perceiverance in sorting the issue out.

Turns out that we found a link on advertising riders, ktm 690 endure forum, they spoke about an adjustable screw in the throttle body hidden behind a riveted plate!!
Did the mod adjusted the screw half a turn and voila!!

Once again thanks Wayne you are a legend!!!

Bushcat, have you noticed higher idle speed since adjusting this screw?
