690 Mapping switch
« on: April 01, 2012, 05:12:14 pm »
Was fiddling with my bike after getting it back from service, took a look at the map settings, they say 3 is the best to have it on, but for the life of me i am not sure if this is acatully on 3  as i cannot see any real markingings or idicator as to show where the three must be placed, in this k@k pic  i took the pen show a sort of 'mark" that it is set at , is this correct?

Just go and look carefully,there is a marking on the round black small knobb that the white one is connected on..It will show a marking on it and that will indicate the setting its on  :thumleft:

And you will want to be on setting 2, Thats advancad setting with very direct responsiveness !

I had it on two and found it very  snatchy , i do a lot of techincal riding and prefer 3, but wil put on 2 just to feel it again, i last had it on 2 about a year ago.

So must the white knob on the top line up up with the number 3 , or must the 3 line up up a marking on the black housing i show in my pic withthe pen?

Ja that is very strange !!! Me and Bossiekop's 690's has the same Flat area with the white mark it the middel of it  ??? He has a Enduro and me an R....cant see why yours wount be the same...Youre 690 just an Enduro with an conversion...Right

Think if you put it pointing to the flat area on the round knob youwill be more ore less OK !!!Hope you get it sorted   :thumleft:

Position 2 is the HAPPY setting!!!   :ricky:

Map 0 is for poor fuel or something  ???
Map 1 is Soft / reduced performance
Map 2 is performance / advanced
Map 3 is standard performance. Lekker when you need a bit slower throttle control!

Map 4-9 is the same as 3.

I use mine as an off-road only toy.  Where I live, off-road meand soft river sand or dunes.  I keep it on 3.  When I try to pull away in sand on setting 2, it just digs in. Monster bike  :ricky:

For what its worth, Leo Vince makes a remote bar mounted map switch for the 690.  Allows you to switch maps without taking the seat off, and as such, to react to different conditions.  The only problem is that its a shit blue and white colour.  Plug and play.  The rest of the KTM off-road range's on-the-fly map switch doesn't work on the 690

Unfortunately the remote switch doesn't really let you change on the fly. You still have to kill the motor when you change the mapping and restart the bike for it to take effect. All it does is save you 30 seconds popping the seat and the rubber cap.
