SuperMoto Conversions / Did you change your suspension settings?
« on: October 20, 2015, 06:40:56 pm »
Im a heavy guy (230b)and it seems like the suspension is doing a great job even pretty much un touched from the dealer except for  a click harder.. One thing I'm a novice on is suspension settings as I'm used to having a suspension guy/tech set mine for me on the track based on tire wear.have not had this bike to the track no it's still pretty much unchanged. What did you all do to your suspension for the SMC conversion? I took 1 1/8th inch out of the fork height and it improved turn in drastically along with a steering stop adjustment, And so far for the few hundred miles of canyon twisty road's it's been amazing... Just trying to see what other have done as the suspension is fully adjustable!

What Broke? / Re: F/I light limp throttle problems
« on: September 01, 2015, 12:24:35 pm »
Herd back from dealer, unable to re-create the symptoms but they herd back from KTM Corp. they suspected a bad Throttle body and TPS. Awaiting the call that they have installed the parts that KTM recommended! Side note Ktm Factory front wheel still on backorder since i bought the 690. Going with a warp 9 setup!

What Broke? / F/I light limp throttle problems
« on: August 25, 2015, 11:24:05 pm »
So this has happened twice to me, 2015 690 enduro R, Only real mod is the FMF Q4 slip on.. Going down the road go to hit the throttle and it goes limp/falls flat on it's face, The first time was heading home from MTC instructor training and i had no one behind me luckily. The second time I was on the freeway at about 70 MPH and the throttle goes limp/nothing there i drop to 40 mph so quickly i almost got rear ended. Merge into breakdown lane and get off the freeway, Bike will not rev past 4K rpm and would not go above 35 MPH. cycle the computer and all is fine... Been at the local KTM dealer for almost two weeks with only a phone call saying there dealing with KTM corporate to figure out an avenue of approach to fix this intermittent issue but they have not herd back yet....Bike only has 1700 miles never been dropped and always taken care of... it's concerning me to say the least...

Seems to be too big to me IMHO.. Anyone have the KTM wind screen that retails at like 100$ for comparison? I want a screen but i don't want something so huge that a low speed tip would compromise integrity of the screen.. just want some wind blast reduction... Here's a link to the factory Enduro r unit on eBay

i will.. Been waiting for three months for these damn rims! Im going to have a serious talk with the dealership manager... As this is the saddest example of customer service I've ever had with any dealership I've ever dealt with.. So far the MT90's have done a great job on the road but i don't have 100% turn in confidence on them once leaned over/transitioning!  saw another 15 with the wings exhaust at mullholland today, Soooo glad i went with the Q4! guy said his seat concepts seat didn't fit... showed him pics of mine!

Definitely put the GRR in the bike... Cruising and at idle it's barely herd.. but hold it wide/chirp it and it opens up! Now it's comfy and has little bark! That seat concepts seat is AMAZING! Im a happy camper... now if that damn dealer could call me about my SMC wheels id be even more content!

Thanks all.. i think ill just go with the Q4. as i just want less heat and to hear it! Even though it states for closed course use only.. it still has a spark arrestor so i think ill be okay if i go Off highway. (damn you cali SMOG ****S!) not too worried about on the street as my other street bike has a slip on and I've gotten no crap for it yet! And yes my wallet is hating me... still awaking my SMC wheel set and just clicked order on a seat concepts seat...

Introductions / Hello All New 690 from So-cal!
« on: April 24, 2015, 12:32:19 am »
Hello thought i should say hi! I have a 15 690 enduro R in the garage, As well as two other bikes! A 2007 cbr 1000RR, And an OHV Only 2005 ktm 525 exc! Love this 690 just wish the dealer would have told me when i got her that the SMC wheel set is on national backorder.. The Enduro R is Stock except for Pirelli MT90 tires. As i could not live with the hum/noise of the MT21's over 65 mph... Ill put some pics up once I've uploaded to photo bucket!
