Nope, you choose maps by turning the X10 dial. There is also a handlebar map select switch available. I'd not see the point of it. If I do mostly commute, I select a 25% slower initial throttle map and if I plan to go off-road I go for a 10% slower map. Takes about 30 sec to change a setting.

Does anyone know if you can put 2008-2011 RR Evo-1 tanks on a 2012?

Would I just need to buy 2011 side panels or is there a mounting bracket change between 2011 and 2012 for the evo-1 kits?

I don't think they'll fit...that's why Mitch and crew developed the Evo2 tanks.

I could, however, be wrong-it's happened 7 times before.

The EVO2 tanks will work with the earlier bikes too. I don't know if the EVO1 tanks will work on the 2012.

Yes they will fit.

2011 side panels needed plus some different brackets from RRP

I think you need this one: http://www.rally-raidproducts.co.uk/...-fuel-tank-kit

That's the one I've got on my'12. Give them a email to be sure.

Heard back from Richard at Vortex and he programed the maps I wanted, so I will send the ECU off to Mike at MT Racing to get the thing re-flashed again. Then I will be able to have a power map as map 1 and any other map. I asked him to put in an economy map which he did. So I can rip in the dirt and flip a switch to economy for the street ride back home.

Full Exhaust system 690e

Hi everyone,

I have a 2010 690 enduro r that I'm building into an adventure bike this summer and am curious about replacing the OEM exhaust which runs as hot as the sun. I was thinking of getting the full system from Remus:

http://www.ktmtwins.com/remus-ktm-69...m-full-exhaust

With an upgraded foam air filter as well. I imagine there will be some performance increases; however, I want to maintain reliability as much as possible and don't want to burn any components out before their time. What are people's thoughts of a full exhaust system (header and all), will I burn anything out prematurely?

I don't think a full system is needed. Spend money on a good slip-on (Wings, Leo Vince etc) and have the Akra map installed by the dealer.

I agree with RoteEddie, except I would not mess with the map right away. Put a slip on can on it, (I think the FMF Q4 is a good value), then do the 15 minute reset. I would not mess with the map unless the bike does not run properly.

What is this 15 minute reset I keep hearing about? How do you do it, and why? What does it do? Thanks.

When the bike is stone cold (after sitting overnight), start the bike, no other inputs (throttle etc.), and walk away for 15mins. Come back, turn it off, then you can go about your ride etc.. This process allows the sensors to reset to current conditions whether it be new exhaust, foam filter, or current atmospheric conditions (temperature, barometric pressure, etc.). Anytime I ride the bike in a new condition (1st winter ride, trailered to a higher altitude, etc.), I perform the reset. I have had good luck with the process.

Just replace the stock muffler with any of the aftermarket options. The FMF Q works well...stainless or Titanium and its pretty cheap. Or you can spend a bit more for a wings, Akro, etc. all will drop the temperature and improve performance.
