KTM 690 love and attention - Done
« on: August 20, 2017, 06:43:46 am »
Time has come to give the 690 some much needed attention.



I however have lots of questions that I'm hoping you guys can help with.

First up is the broken bolt holding the tank and crash bars in position.  Where would I find that specific washer and bolt.  It has Rockfox crash bars and the Oryx RS fairing.





Fuel line is leaking, I think the petcock needs an overhaul while I'm replacing the fuel line since it's not sealing properly.



Exhaust needs proper clean back to front.



Front mudguard catching front tyre.  I know these 690's don't have the best suspension, but this should not be happening.



Either the front guard bent on the first time it caught the tyre or it's something else?



This spacing also doesn't make sense to me.



And then it's chains and sprockets that needs replacement.





I'm sure there's some other things that will come out the wash as I strip.

Washers just incorrectly installed.  With the mudguard mounted flush all the angles corrects itself.  Also noticed with this arrangement the rear was catching the radiator guard.



Roadbook motor needs replacement - burnt out.



Light bracket on the tower cracked.



DNA filter doing what it's supposed to do.

This sweating can only be fuel related.  If you were wondering, this is the reason why I don't clean the bike prior to stripping. 



I'll be trimming back the radiator guard to alleviate this chafing.





The pillion pegs are extremely hardegat to come down.  Is this normal?

Die washer wat die vinger het wat na hom wys kom in Track Pack Euro style bolt kits wat meeste bike plekke verkoop.  Soos hierdie, net nie Japanees, Euro style.  Die Tusk kits het dit nie in nie.

Die spacers op die front mudguard is te veel ja, maar meeste kits druk op die mudguard, daarom sit hulle dit in. Kyk of jy met minder spacing kan wegkom. Probleem is as die kit klaar gefit is en al die gate geboor ens is dit moeilik om dit te verander.

Dankie Rascal.  Ek het nog nie gekyk met die fairing weer terug nie, maar as ek so na die fotos kyk kan ek nie glo dat hy Írens behoort te vang nie.

Myne was ook afgespace om plek te maak vir die oil cooler.  Maar ek het 300mmm travel vurke gehad, so het nie die modderskerm gevang nie.

Not sure how much mud flip the motard fender will catch but it's stiffer so wind and bounce should not be a issue .

Worth a look

Thanks armpump, will have a look how everything fits together once I assemble the fairing and front mudguard again.  Someone also mentioned the SE mudguard as an option.

Armpump

That doesn't look like a home-made adapter, where can I find one?

Crash bars off to get to that broken bolt.



The 'sweating' was only caused by a loose bolt that caused the washer not to seal properly.



What it looks like behind the tank.





Under the bashplate. (Hyde aftermarket)

I love these kind of strip downs you really get to see all the small issues before they turn into big problems

Pillion pegs. Some Q20/WD40 will sort them out!

The reason why I'll wash my own bike for the rest of my life as well.  The amount of loose bolts encountered thus far is astonishing.

Ok back to work after our Amageza/Baja mates came round for a lekker get together.

Exhaust off, ready for a good clean - I love a clean header pipe.







After that, changing sprockets and chain.  I bought this chain and side stand for the 640 off a WD member >2 years ago and the chain will finally be put to use.

Sprockets from a mate from Amageza spares stock.

Whoever puts a stud bolt here, right behind the header bend, should be fired.



Interesting that there's only a spacer on the one side. (Item 3). My guess is that it's to ensure an even fix?



Header back in position and a little bit cleaner than it was.



Enough for today.
