In other news, the 950 SE Microsquirt project is coming along nicely, She ran yesterday and today we start setting up the maps.

You have ridden that horse at warmer temp and/or much high altitude yet ???

I too think the double-throttle has no place on a dirt bike. For those how wants to know what a 690 could be, try a 570 ... I mean when it does not have its own ECU issues ...

A simple direct injection with Bosch fuel pump and injector ... That's all we need ...

I've ridden it in warmer temps but not at altitude yet. When the snow melts in the high elevation, I'll get it up over 3000 feet or so. In theory, the MAP will compensate for the altitude....in theory I've had a 570, 390 and now a 500 and the new/improved 690 feels the same so far. I'm hoping to flog it in a big sand pit this weekend and I'll try and get some video, just for giggles. My life is all about data logging these days

Just wanted to make sure you saw what was new with the 690 and see if you're doing the Dawn to Dusk Enduro in the UK?

Some video from Sandblast rally...



You can hear me short shift and the last shift into second, you can hear the little back fire from the poor timing advance. It's all fixed now thankfully, spooled it up on the highway last night and it pulled really hard I'm loving my 690 more now than ever, it's great! Trail riding tomorrow with it, so I can see what the fuel economy is like.

Did some snotty trail testing to see what the slow speed lugging would be like....




So far so good, lugs down real good and builds revs nice and easy. No hesitation or flame outs, it's really remarkable actually. Was able to easily lean back on the pegs and pull the front wheel.

Cool! D2D has crossed my mind, but first to see if I survive Hellas.

Great work!

I am pretty sure he sold the bike and moved on. He has been focusing on hare scrambles and the like. Not sure if the bike went on to another tuner or not.

Aw that sucks! I know I'm not the only one following this hoping for a final verdict. (Not that I have the wherewithal to follow in his footsteps )

I was going to take it on, however we put that plan on hold. Haven't talked with him recently so I don't know if he still has it or not. I ended up selling my 690 and have yet to replace it with something else so my desire to finish the Microsquirt conversion is reduced. Also the guy that built the original harness got super busy with a new job so that would have left me with the task of building harnesses. Not that I can't, just don't have time.

The last time we spoke the bike was running better that ever after finding some timing issues and fixing them. It basically just needed a final tweak/tune and would be good to go.

The harness and computer are not so bad...its the tuning where the $$$ and challenge will be. I am on the fence as to what I am doing with my bike. Might just be selling everything I own and in the not too distant future and starting over with all my debt removed from the equation.

Roc104 and i both gave up
left us too many times and then "fixed" itself 2 days later

I wanted to do the miccrosquirt conversion but like you said the guy making the harness got busy on other things

i miss that bike when it ran good......but i dont miss looking for a rental truck 1000 miles from home

uSquirt is easy once you get first build out of the way. I am loving my microsquirt van conversion.
