No you can't, I tried that with my 690, I wanted to take it to Eddie2Race instead of KTM CT and was informed by KTM SA that they will not honour the warranty if I do  :( ::)
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

Although the 701 borrows heavily from the 690, they are keen to market them as independent brands.

My 701 is currently at E2R and I've asked them to have a look at sort-of-known issues such as the retainer on the starter gear that's come loose, although it seems only on 2017 models, and the
sealed bearing on the cam, which some seems to have been fitted without lubricant, or not enough lubricant.

Exciting bikes, but they make you realize how you owe the Japanese for years of carefree biking.

They apparently run their computer systems independently as well, meaning the KTM crowd can't log into the Husky system to update consumer & bike info etc.
Seems they run it independently when it suits them and other times they hold back new stock on the 701 so they can sell the 690's that they still have in stock... Eish, ma nou sinner ek te lekka  ::)

Fair amount of oil in airbox, very little dust. Hope that overfill's  the problem
Is the airbox above where the leak is? Is it possible to run down from there to where you see it now?
Holding thumbs is was overfilled.


Eerlike waarheid is dat ek eerder nie nou gaan verder kyk nie. Ek gaan paar dik monde h na 6 dae weg as ek nog tyd daar spandeer....

Surely a wet sump engine must always have oil in the sight glass. It should actually have more when cold as opposed to hot as all the oil drains down into the sump ?

I would think so, but check accurately when engine at operating temp?

Check those No 8 nuts at the bottom of the clutch cover casing particularly those that are obscured by the foot brake lever.

I had a loose (stripped) one down there on my 690 that caused quite a lot of oil to leak into the bash plate, very similar to your situation.

Be very carefull when tightening those bolts, some of them strip very easily or come pre stripped for your convenience from the factory.
Just a tight nip should do it.

I had three pre stripped for my conveniance on my 690.
KTM of cource said that I had stripped them. Gee, No surprises there.
Anyway, the bolt hole is often drilled and tapped longer than the standard bolt, so often using a slightly longer bolt allows using the last good threads right at the end of the hole.
Now: Honda XR250  KTM 690R  KTM 500
Then: XR650R  TE510  TE630  SMS630  690R

The two holes that tighten down the oil filter cap also strips easily. simply run n 1mil bigger taper through and use a bigger bolt.
