Well, at least you are a lot closer to the UK and Rally Raid Products than I am ( New Zealand ) to get your suspension to them to sort out for you.

Man why don't they produce a true adventure version of the 690?????????

Because it will effect the sales of the 990 of course!!!!!!

I need a proper screen and dash for my 690, but don't want to spend $3k to do it!

After reading the drama about the clutch switch, I'm really glad I ditched the KTM nanny boxes

I snapped a clutch lever and replaced it with a motion pro version and it has the boss on it to engage the switch. (Dealer, though, sold me the wrong lever on the 1st try. In fact those f***ers sold me both the wrong brake lever AND the wrong clutch lever. It was mail order after that experience )

Do Rally Raid sell these 4,8Nm springs? 465mm long from what i have read.

I see in an older blog on the Rally Raid website that you are developing a insert for the front forks in conjunction with Ohlins, hows that coming along?

Motion Pro Micro Bleeders on mine. They sit lower and are less likely to rip off.

Cheers,

Does anyone know what the stock rev limiter setting is for the 690? Been working on my base map settings and cold start enrichment but need to verify the rev cut. I've got the soft cut at 7600 and hard cut at 7700.

For you tune ecu folks, does anyone have the spark map handy? My butt tells me it needs a bit more advance and I need a good baseline before venturing into holed pistonland

8400 std but 8800 is ok, been up to 9200 but felt it was pushing it a bit to far

Crank, this is how it finished up,also 700cc engine, had it pulling 124 mph with 15/45 gearing

Great work Beaney! I need to dip into the timing for sure, she falls flat at 6600 RPM, I must be missing some timing advance. AFR looks good across the board and it just feels like timing to me. Back to the dyno next week

Have a look on tuneecu for the duke r map 2011, ign a bit more advanced and pulls strong from 6000 up. may give you some clues on where to go.

Also running mine on the rich side, found it helps smooth out the power delivery
