Thanks. The book for the 13 calls for the same torque values. Though both upper and lower triple clamp bolts "felt" like they had been torqued the same and to a higher value than that when I removed them. May have been the dry threads.

Mounting Tires:

Now that we have solved the issue as to how to mount bags ....

Here is an interesting article as to how the red and yellow dots on a tire correlate with the rim....this is true for bikes as well as cars/trucks:

12 nm = 106 in/lbs
17 nm = 150 in/lbs

Work gave me a conversion calculator application on the PC-an uber handy thing to have loaded.

Any other conversions anyone needs?

dividing by 12:

12 nm = 106 in/lbs = 8.83 ft/lbs
17 nm = 150 in/lbs = 12.5 ft/lbs

Math is hard.

Is that the same conversion for Canadians? So how many beer cans do we drink first to crush?

Haven't you heard? A beer drinking Canadian is exempt from all that science/physics stuff. Just tighten it down until it strips, back it off half a turn...good to go.

Ok lets get this back on track...

My local dealer had two 2013 690's in stock. The first one was the one I commented on 2 days ago and I thought was very unpleasant to ride. I rode the second one today. Both bikes were set up the same way, same map (standard) and both at less than 30 miles. Out on the highway I went since that's where the horrible vibes were on the previous one I rode.

Was I surprised! This was like a totally different bike. Much, much smoother. I could see behind me in the mirrors pretty well at 65 to 75mph, where on the previous bike they were a complete blur at those speeds. The bars also were also barely vibing at all, where on the previous bike they were buzzing really hard at the same speeds and my hands were tingling and starting to go numb in a few minutes. The second bike was pleasant to ride at freeways speeds and it also hummed along in slow traffic at 2500 to 3500RPM with no stumbling or lurching, just nice and steady. I rode it back to the dealer and bought it right then, oh yeah!



Let the mods begin!
