Replacing Throttle Body with new version
« on: July 27, 2016, 11:03:31 pm »
Hi,

I have a 2008 KTM 690 Enduro, I've had stalling problems with her since we met.
After checking everything on the bike, my dealer recommends replacing my throttle body.
So I bought a 2015 KTM 690 Enduro R Throttle Body on Ebay, but I cannot find the other parts I need to upgrade my 2008 semi-fly by wire system to the new electronic system.

Do I need to make any special connection on my wiring harness or upgrade my ECU too?

Thank you!
Grant

I think there is much more to it then how the throttle connects to the system. I believe it is an entirely different FI system.
Hard to believe a new throttle body was required, sounds like the dealer doesn't know what the problem is and is ready to throw parts at it.

Hi,

Thank you for the reply Bruce,
I find it hard to believe that there is no one who has tried this swap before, can it be done?

I think I'm going to return the 2015 TB, and try and find a 2013 or earlier TB to solve this problem.

Regards
Grant

Grant, you may look into the Tune ECU or Power Commander to "remap" your fuel injection/ignition.  From what I have read, this is what everyone else with pre-'14 bikes have done.  You will change way too much to upgrade to a '14-'16 system.  Also, the '14-'16 bikes have dual spark plugs and no SAS.  Even if you get all the parts, you'll still have to tweak the ignition and fuel map for your single spark plug.
