Any of you guys in on this training?
Fooker is doing it all wrong. The rear wheel should be pointing the other way After all, no one ever high sided with it pinned.

Put proper tires on yesterday, will set suspension up close to that on the 500 and give it a chance. As Vic said, it's like a lighter underpowered 500. With my skill level, or lack there of, I don't think I can over-ride it and I certainly don't/can't use all the power on the 500. So we'll see.

Gimmee is coming over to adj the TPS tomorrow to hopefully correct the flame out issue. Then I'm gonna ride it, make susp. adj and give it a fair chance.

Thank you for your interest and again, I hope this wishywashyness on my part didn't cause any issues. When you get some time to do some splor'n on the 690, please call or PM me. Would love to join you.
No prob. By the way my 350 is well sorted if you want to try. I like it better than 450 for most situations except dirt roads and true DS type ridding then I just ride the 690

I'll take you up on that offer if the door opens.

Will take this opportunity to share the TPS adjustment. Gimmee gave me a new 350 yesterday, well, sort of. Had to listen to couple of 'stories' then he got down to bidness on the TPS. I was having 'flame outs' during warm up idle and multiple ones while ride'n, also, I just wasn't that impressed with the bottom end, mid range, top end, idle, torque delivery or lack there of. Basically I was gonna put the bike for sale. All that has changed now. Gimmee is The Bomb! For the lower IQ's, that means he rocks.

Original factory closed throttle setting was .584mv and WFO was 3.83mv (WFO = WOT just as long as Mc squared is greater than .6825) Gimmee say "mang, dat ting is lean"

The adjustment is extremely touchy but finally got it to .622mv.

Magic! It literally is like a different bike. I'm not trying to redo a beer commercial but.....Gimmee, I love you man.

I was privileged to meet Mr Penton twice. I definite must see for me.

I remember how totally awestruck we all were when a Penton first showed up at an enduro... Maplesville schoolhouse as I remember it. I was riding a 125 Sachs.
