Has anyone changed a 690 rear shock spring and of so can you confirm if the use of spring compressors is necessary? I have seen a few references but can't believe it. I have changed springs on Penske, PDS wp shocks, aftermarket wp shocks etc and none have needed compressors. Just wind preload all the way off and remove bottom plate. Surely it's possible on e 690 shock too?

Has anyone taken the plunge on one of these yet? I'm wondering what kind of quality and fit they have.

it is a RR motor....so its a bit different than an E/R. if it bolts into a stock 690 frame im sure it can be retrofitted for efi.

Maybe........inside their heads changing that component would admit that they had made a design/engineering mistake; kinda like the slave cylinder, or fuel pump, or side stand (950/900), or ..........

If the threads on the shock body are in good shape, you can just back the collars all the way off and then remove the lower retainer to get the spring off. The threads on my shock body (along with many others' here) were boogered up from the get go and ended up peeling off 1 thread. I put anti-sieze compound on the threads before reassembly to avoid further damage. Rally raid offers a new stainless steel nut to avoid the dreaded deformed aluminum nuts, I just figured that once I set my sag I would not be making future adjustments so I opted to keep the stockers on there. If you use a spring compressor, you can avoid spinning the collars altogether, but I'll bet that your sag numbers won't fall into place even with the correct spring for your weight unless you make some adjustments of the collars.

There was a comment made in the 690 carburetor conversion mod thread that the head of the RR motor is different that the FI. Link to that thread below.

I can't remember - does the US/Australia have "V power" at shells? Malaysia has V power and V power R (102 octane) at Shell. Shell is different here in Malaysia as it comes from higher quality crude out of Brunei. I always thought it was the best and maybe it is but that may or may not have anything to do with it not being any good for the 690.
Its not BS. But its not related to 690's. Its related to this specific gas type - 10 micron / my / whatever gas filter and BLACK gas tanks. The clever guys will find out we're talking about SXF's having black gas tanks and also this 10 micron filter INSIDE of one of the gas hoses. Dealers are instructed to tell the customer to avoid this type of gas and at the same time they must replace those 10 micron filter with 20 micron before they leave the floor.
So its a clogging filter problem with this type of gas in combination with black tanks (on the SXF's).

I dunno if micron / my whatever is the correct wording, but you get the point. Replace filters with new ones letting particles the double size to be allowed flowing through the filter.

Per my Dutch paperwork, the bike is officially listed as 142kg empty and 150kg ready to ride. Freeride seems a bit on the heavy side ;)

Tell you what though it'll sure teach those cages a lesson when they pull out in front of one and total their vehicles.
