Thanks - better angle for sure.

As per Baja Dad, now I understand
why they use the extra mount bolts
to beef up the top clamps - for the
handguard mounts...

All makes sense now - looks like a
bomber set up

Slick dual locking caps on the 990 - you
get those done custom, or ?

Those are stock fuel caps on the Adv.

The best solution appears to be a Fat Duc adjustable variable resistor pot inline with the O2 plug on the exhaust. I have installed this cheap device and it works wonders - now smooth as. I don't really understand the FI - O2 thingy, but on the Aprilia it gets around the lousy OEM mapping that is used to pass emissions tests.

Would such a like device be any use on the 690?

Clock on dash resetting

Noticed on the weekend ride that the digital clock on the dash (08 690E) twice reset itself to 12:00. There doesn't appear to be a battery power issue as it starts and runs fine. Maybe a dash connector issue?

Anyone with ideas or similar problem?

Thanks

OZ-S,
I have had that problem with my '96 BMW 1100GS since new....some wrenches were able to reduce the surging in that rpm range, but recent BMW shop "tuned" it and it is surging and bucking more than ever....back to the shop for a third time....wonder if that would work for the GS?

Thanks for the tip

Ged

That cable can be finicky but my experience is that if that cable is not seated properly, the tach/spedo won't work either.

Yes, had an 1150 like that. It was related to Throttle Body set-up, but the surging was at steady throttle openings. Incidently, they also had a jumper that could richen it up (even though it was supposed to be used for lower octane fuel)

2010 690 enduro starter issues?

Hi all, with 5000 miles on the bike a starter issue has arisen. It appears not to be the battery (as it is charged) but starter attempts to turn over a few times then stops and you can hear an audible clicking sound.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

If all else fails check the ground wires that bolt to the frame near the upper right bolt for the gas tank. One of those wires broke and my speedo lost all the digits. There are a bunch of wires that all are connected to ground at that point.

Can u hook the bike up to a real shop type charger or another bike?

Original battery? Get it load tested. 14 volts static dont rule out the battery unfortunately.

Try bypassing the starter relay. If that works you found your problem.

Is the X2 halogen offroad any better? I'm not going down the road of HID. If I have to spend the $$ it'll be an LED
Both halogen options are about the same. I tried the x2 to save $$, but to me it was a waste of $$. YMMV...

Squadron LED is REALLY bright. Needed a dimmer for that one. The SII option might be a good choice with 2 LED's?
