    Default Ktm 690 smc r 2012

    Hi ya all.

    I've recently bought a brand new 690 SMC R, and last monday my new akrapovic exhaust and evo intake box arrived.

    I've mounted the exhaust and intake, but the guy at the local ktm dealership havent time to change the mapping of the bike until next week. (And I'm leaving to go offshore tuesday next week :-( )

    Is it dangerous for me to ride the bike without the mappings? - Or should I wait to ride it at all until the correct mappings are in place?

    Answers appreciated.

    Regards,

    You should really wait until the new mapping is installed, the bike just won't perform like you're hoping it's going to with the mods and improper mapping. I would switch it back to stock pipe and air-box if you REALLY need to ride before you leave (which I'm sure you do!). Then switch it back to new pipe and box before you leave and put it in the shop. Are you dropping it off then leaving and having someone pick it up for you while your off-shore?

    All right!

    Yes, I'm going to wait. And the guy from the dealership haven't called me back either.

    The first time I met up in person, and they would call me back about the price and time. No call back, so I called again, and they said they will call me back about a time for the mapping (And they wanted 2500 NOK for doing the mapping! That's about 420 USD)

    So I got sick of the bad service, and ordered myself an original KTM EFI communications tool, and I'll do the mapping myself. (got two weeks at sea to do the homework, hah)

    And I guess it will go OK, afterall I work as an instrument tech, and calibration and adjusting is all I do :p

    $420????? Does that include a bj from a gorgeous Norwegian model as you wait? What a scam, the cable is the best way to go anyway, I bought one because it was about the price it would cost me to get it done at a dealer, if not cheaper. As it turns out the PO already had the map on, but it's nice to make sure I suppose.

    Hah, it sure would seem that way. He also wanted around 490 USD for the 1000 KM service. What do they do at that service anyways? - Read out error codes, change the oil and check some bolts?

    So yeah, he should have hired a couple of blowjob models I guess. hah

    Just oil + filters as far as I know. I paid £150 ($233) for my 690's second service (oil + filter) which I consider expensive but it has to be done to keep the warranty. At around 6,300 miles (in my case) it'll need the valves checked so it will be incredibly expensive!!! The dealer says its around 6 hours of labour alone.

    That is expensive. - But isn't the warranty allready broken when you install the new mappings?

    And have any of you guys found a service manual for the 2012 690? I can only find up to 2010.

    They should wait until after work to drop acid.

    Jeezus, what crooks! Or maybe I'm in the wrong business, lol.

    And just as an FYI, I know it's long past now, but you can ride the 690 with Akras on and the stock map and it won't hurt anything. Keep the baffles in for best performance with the stock map. This won't be optimal but it won't hurt anything either. I would expect the same with the airbox.

    only the map for the user setting tool voids the warranty, it also will let your bike rev a 1000 rpms higher...
