KTM 690 2012 - Valve cover screw needed
« on: October 12, 2018, 08:16:54 am »
Hi
Anyone that can possibly help me out ,i need one of the valve cover screws ,none of the KTM shops have any stock of it and will take 10 days to get here if they have to order ,and i`m supposed to be leaving on a bike trip next week ....
I know this is a long shot ,but i`m kinda desperate ..
Thanks

The screw actually looks a bit different ,it is standard thread but there is some sort of spacer at the bottom of the screw just before the thread starts ,not sure why ,and if it has to do with the way the cover seals.

Get a normal bolt & washer, and put it in 'by feel' - but, do not torque it to the prescribed spec as this will too much!
That thingy looks to be a stopper preventing overtightening of the gaskets.
If you don't trust the 'alien' bolt put a blob of sillicone on it to stop it from coming loose.
Then order the correct bolt and: happy riding!  ;)
