Nice work Kevin, locks pretty good .. more like a SMR then a SMT. Maybe would be easier to build an SMT Tank on a SMR :mrgreen: or what was the reason for the modification?

I missed my SMR & hated the SMT screen's buffeting, my brand new 2012 SMT cost me Oz$4000.00 cheaper than a brand new 2013 SMR so I found it cost effective build my own version part SMR with 4 liters more fuel range.

I have not modified any SMT part so the bike can go back together & look like a SMT when I sell it next year, unless the new owner wants a hybrid SMT/SMR.

Find anywhere good to mount the 12V outlet? Just realized it had to be removed when fitting the back part of the mask!

Did not bother to fit the 12v socket as I really never used it.

kevxtx wrote:A 44T will fit if you turn the alloy adjuster block 180 degrees on the rear axle. I did a 300km ride this morning & found the 43T is perfect for me & my riding conditions, 256km fuel light cam on, 16.73kms/1litre of fuel with all my mods on with custom fuel map.

The reason I went for the bigger rear sprocket over the 16t front sprocket was
1/ I want a shorter wheel base, going from 17/41 to 17/43 I have changed the wheel base by -1,15mm, it does not sound much but it will make the bike turn in better in the tight stuff.
2/ There is no chain slap from the drive train with larger rear sprocket, there is chain slap with a 16T front
3/ The chain wraps through a lesser angle using the 17T front sprocket
4/ The chain should last longer with one extra roller on the front sprocket taking up the engine load

Gear ratios

17/41 = 2.41 = 100kmph = 3745rpm = 6th gear = standard gearing.
17/42 = 2.47 = 100kmph = 3836rpm = 6th gear
17/43 = 2.52 = 100kmph = 3927rpm = 6th gear
16/41 = 2.56 = 100kmph = 3979rpm = 6th gear
17/44 = 2.58 = 100kmph = 4019rpm = 6th gear

If you are lifting or carrying a load & don't run over 120kmph a 44T would suit. I have tried the 16/41 & this time wanted a little better cruising speed with the 17/43.
Kev, I'm thinking of 17/43 combination (from dennis).
Do you reckon I will have any problems travelling with pillion and full packed (3 luggages)? Should I better go for 17/42?

I have tried all the different ratios & prefer 17/43, if you do lots of open road riding above 140kph I would go 17/42.

I just did the 690 H/L conversion myself. I did not find a need for items 41, 42, 43, 44. Also, if you go ahead and do the conversion, watch the screws that thread into the middle mask piece...the KTM drawing spec's an incorrect part number (they are too long and will poke right through the middle mask!) You will also need some random M6 bolts, washers, nuts to attach the SM high fender. It is pretty straightforward...most time will be spent making your 4 custom brackets. I am highly pleased with the results though :mrgreen:

Using 41, 42, 43, 44 will all depend on the bracket lengths you make.

Hello all...I`m pretty good mechanically with basic motorcycle jobs but with computers/mapping etc I`m pretty green but I catch on quickly so my question is what map # should I use from Kevs list on my 2012 SMT?
Here`s what I`ve done:

Wings bolt-on exhaust > large DB killers installed
ITG JC 30-65 air system > standard OE stacks
SAS removed with blocking plates on
2nd flies removed, shafts in
use 91 octane with less than 10% ethanol (occasionally use 92 octane with no ethanol)
elevation range is between 1000 - 6500 ft. mostly all sport riding > twisty mountain roads with occasional off road riding (hard-pack/clay/gravel).

Thanks for any help and recommendations!

Chris

Check The map thread and see if anything is suited for your modyfication until someone answer you, I guess some map will suit you but you probably need to add fuel with that fuel of 91 octane

Octane ratings are a bit different in the US. Their 91 (PON) is roughly the same as our 95 RON.
