I can confirm that this is dealer dependant. Wifes Duke 690 had a bad seal about a year after purchase. One dealer wanted to charge for the work plus parts, other dealer had it done as warranty. But...

The 690 is actually quite a beast, albeit a small one. You can get into trouble faster than you anticipate when you're wringing the throttle, 70hp in a light chassis isn't exactly downsizing per se. ...

90 km/h in sixth sounds a bit rough for the engine, unless you travel slightly downhill. Usually upwards from about 100 km/h is okay for my bike (15K on the clock).

On the other hand I'm used to...

The 1190 buzzes, wifes Duke 690 buzzes and my Volkswagen has some funny noises with the power on but engine off. So that's as normal as can be, I don't even think about these anymore.

You would have to keep your right leg down and next to the pipe (for a while) to burn a hole in the boot. And also have no feeling in said leg. Or do the Crossfires have that good insulation?

How about the actual light from the high beam? Is the LED better than the stock bulb?

If it's that an easy swap, no resistors needed, then I'll go for it too. As long as the visibility is better.

I have similar issues. When turning the throttle all the way to the stop the bike really just wants to go straight. Ok, on gravel it tends to wag it's tail happily though when going (mostly) straight...

Any information about...

Here's my view as I have had a couple of rides, first with the R for an hour or so, and then a few days ago a short stint on the standard model (which I had already ordered at that point).

Welcome to Finland and get yourself an R. Even though we have miles and miles of gravel road the standard model sells better, so there are R's still available.

A new one from Finland

Hi ya all!
