It does - which is why the tank stayed on.

We'll see what COOBER says. I can always attach Just the CPS and then maybe the coils and then Injectors.

Tank fairly easy to remove, fuel line, 2 vent/drain lines and couple electrical connections plus ecu.
Be sure battery disconnect before disconnecting any electrical. I propped back of tank up with roll of duct tape. All connections and lines come off easy. Fuel 90 it notva big deal, just use two hands after clip removed. My pcv was easy to install with tank off, would be impossible otherwise.

Had a reply from Coober via Wings. - They have asked that I retry and send them photos of everything before and after. That's fair.

Mon-Wed I can't really do much - but will have a go tomorrow. The main issue on the 790 is one or two very well thought out (by KTM) semi-hidden cable ties which need to be cut. Once you know where they are - it's a good deal easier. That reminds me - buy cable ties today.

No need to actually remove tank -I'll document. You can with care raise the front part too and then there's room.

Small steps - Day by Day.

So started from scratch and



it's alive!

COOBER advised to be VERY CAREFUL with the ignition connectors, and they are right.
They can fit together incorrectly. It is almost certain I had one of the 4 inverted.

Now just need to road test. The first 50kms or so I'll need to be careful though so the exhaust packing fluffs up correctly.

My father, a very good engineer and a real hands on guy, always used to say: " when everything fails, read the manual".

Glad to hear you are up and running!

I ride because my wife says it keeps me young and is better than if I get a girlfriend...

To do this - one needs one's reading glasses. Generally a good idea when doing wiring too.

Or working on time pieces, or soldering, or doing work on the son's electric guitars, or installing forks, or...

I gave up. I have reading glasses in every drawer and bag.
