I would think it you removed the cables completly from the throttle body, the tb would set at 0 if you will. the bike should idle with out a code.
if the cables have any pressure on the tb cam(throttled up), it would give the wrong reading for starting. if the tb cam had negitive pressure (the wrong way) it would logically give the wrong reading..

cables have zero tension on the tb at idle

or of course your hairy knuckles could of knocked apad out of wack. you unpluged something and of course you might of kinked the line in the tank putting the adapter on..thats not hard to do...

is it possible you did all three ? just playin

there are others here that know way more...

Good news is it was an overlooked mistake. Even though I (half assed) looked over all connections, turns out when I applied the grease, the tb sensor on the right side wasn't "clicked" in all the way. Goofball mistake but very pleased that's all it was!

Thanks again shipwreck for your insight.

Can anyone give a video review of what a bad rocker bearing looks like for 690's? If so I'll add it to the wiki.


I can host the video as well if necessary.

Mine did this. The bands on the bearing are probably caused by the auto decompress not laying flat when the motor is running. Pull the rocker arm and check your auto decompress.. its probaboly a bit fooked up also.

I would replace your rockers and decompress if its bad. You will loose the hardening on the bearing if you keep running it.... that is what happened to me.

What year is the moto?

Thanks! That's a great idea when you don't have easy access to our special oil! :p

Ive actually brought clutch plates on a trip knowing the time was soon.

I used to lean my 950 over all the time when I had to do my water pump shaft and clutch work.

or is changing the headlight the only way to go.?

I have the '12 model, UNI drop in air filter, canisterectomy/desmoggification has been done with the 22k ohm resister applied where appropropriate, Wings slip on with the large diameter sparkie installed, and have the stock map loaded up which came on the bike as delivered.

It ain't broke, I do the 15 minute idle reset with large seasonal/ambient temperature changes, I have never gotten a code, it doesn't stall, it makes me smile, a whack at the throttle lifts the front in 3rd, and I ain't gonna remap the thing.

Keep in mind for all practical purposes, I'm at sea level here in south Louisiana at 13 feet. The low fuel light usually comes on right around 125 to 130 miles, so your experience may vary.

you could do the same pretty easily... minus dropping the bike.
Same story here ...

It will lower your temp by around 30 degrees. It is compatible with water, but not with Ethylene Glycol (which is the most standard coolant)

Evans Coolant is far better, but it is not compatible with water and other coolants. Evans Coolant will make you radiator last forever (most probably longer then yourself ) because of the absence of water and water vapor. It is not water based, but some kind of alcohols if I remember well.

I was lucky enough to pick up a 2008 headlight from another inmate. That's the best solution IMHO. Plug n play.
