I did a a couple of mods on the fairing plate to prevent the vibe issue you experienced.

I figured it would absorb a side impact and stop the plate puncturing the fairing.

Will look at the speedo plugs again and also check for loose pins as Ross said. I know I have a spare 2 pin plug that I'm not 100% sure was spare before, but I have traced the wires from the flasher switch to the right connection in the main loom and everything else works so it probably is a spare. The only other 2 pin plug is from the starter button and that is connected right.

On the vibration, it was the plate hitting the left side of the fairing that was causing it on mine. Have put in something to stop the vibration temporarily but will shave some off the plate next weekend to stop the contact altogether. the hose to help against piercing the fairing is a good idea.

Risers are Rbotts an ADV inmate, as the fairings push the ignition block back 10mm I found I needed a longer link arm for the Scotts stabiliser and Rbott is getting one for me from the US. Still waiting for my Touratech racks so I can do the back end but Catman bought his up on Saturday and we scoped out how we could mount tool tubes on the racks. James gets married next weekend so I guess I have to give it a break,

Nice. I fitted the Scotts plate that holds the tower around the ignition block. I only had to file the hole back 5 mm and it slotted over the ignition block nicely. How much have you raised your bars by? Mine are up 17mm with the Scotts fitment but I would like some more.

The Rbotts set up I bought is 2.5 inch rise as I am 6ft 5in and I have also put on fastway pegs in the low position even though they only drop about 1/2 inch every bit counts.

Fuse is ok, wiring looks ok, neither side lights up at all, switch should be ok because not touched, oem flashers don't work and nor do the new leds on the fairing. I'm stuck

I had problems on the Tiger with some LED lights not creating sufficient resistance, and causing electrical feedback.
Detlef gave me help sorting it out and fixing it.
Ended up buying some resistors from Dick Smith. They are about 50c each, so I got a range - 1 ohm to 10 ohm.
At one end of the range there was no effect.
At the other the resistor got over hot.
The Goldilocks principle worked and one of the mid range resistors works just fine!

I assume you've got an 'electronic' flasher relay? So did I, but it didn't fix the problem at all.

Thanks Ray but even with an oem flasher connected there is nothing. And Rally Raid, who supplied the LED flashers, have assured me that if only the front flashers are chnaged to LED they work, and I have no reason not to believe them. It must be the relay suddenly packing up, or more likely I've broken a connection somewhere.

Very very nice

Did you do anything to stop the front fender rubbing on the radiator?

I am changing the front fender to the earlier enduro version as I believe the wind catches these new type and bends the front down, but if there is signs of rub with the replacement I will spacer the rear mount bolts to adjust the back down to give clearance, at least that worked on my 990 with the same guard.

I'm waiting on a replacement front mudguard. Been told that the e guard isn't available at present, so I'm getting an R guard (maybe today??).
The R guard interferes with the radiator? I need some spacers to lower it a cm or so?
Shit, bugger, bum!

BTW, the 690R ADV - hope it goes as well as it looks, 'cause that looks fantastic.

Ray, the stock setup doesn't allow the fender to touch the radiator guard but for the Rally Raid fairing kit I need to add extra spacers to the rear fender fittings to tilt the fender so it doesn't interfere.
