Rode it, jumped some curbs, rode down a few sidewalks, shopped for tires and new springs. That's about it, I believe.

Cpr






Put the CPR intake on the 07 990 since i had the throttle bodies off anyway for injector removal. The filter isnt as easy to get on and Off as i thought it would be but maybe I just need to learn the correct way?

Went to do the 15 min idle and saw the headers glowing red!!! never done that before guess shes a bit lean on the stock setting. REmapped with akro ti slip on map seams alot better test ride confirmed the gain in performance.. The ride was short but wow what a difference

I mean really wow this is a must have that stock air box is such a clunky mess and obviously a huge restriction would deffinetly recommend

Glad to hear you like it...I got one on the way. Can you send me a link of the map you used and some specs of your bike (to see if I can you your map) because I am sure I will need to remap too.

In what way is the filter hard to get off? You think you can do it with the tanks on?

I used the map from the tune ecu site. Air injection off and o2 sensors on

You should be able to get the filter on and off with the the tanks on maybe just the glove box off I put a filter skin on to extend the life of my filer between cleanings.

The filter takes a bit of finess to clip on and I thought it would slid ove the lip a bit easyer but it takes some finess and tweaking I guess it's better to have the fitter in ther tight then flopping around. Anything is better then the OE airbox

Make sure u get the Superduke trumpets also they are suppose to be good for 1hp alone

I was having issues with my BAAS 12V socket + battery tester...like blowing its 5A fuses nonstop in spite of checking the electric installation over and over again...and last week I got a replacement unit. I installed it today and it works like it should.
I also fitted the OEM side racks to mount my beloved Junior 40L cases. I'm pretty much ready for my 5 days tour of Euskadi (Basque Country)!

Would be easy to place a filter on the cross over from the right tank but that would only solve half the problem. I may just use a sock filter at the filler - even though its a PITA. On the 690 side, they used a sock filter for the fuel pump. I'm not sure if that would be an option here.

new skins on new wheels

No pics. Put a pair of MT21s on my second wheels set (21x1.85 and 18x2.5 - basically a SE950R wheelset).

A big thanks to the Orange Crush Hall of Wisdom and specifically Neduro's "How to change tires" page.

Even if I am a long way from accomplishing this task without breaking a sweat, I'm down to 45 minutes front an just over an hour for a rear. Good thing I have no ambition to ever be a competetive enduro rider...
