My 2013 Speedometer is not working right. Every thing functions properly but the speed and mileage displays. Is there a way to test the speed sensor wire to try and isolate the problem?

I would like to see if it's the display or possibly the cable. Also where is the speed pickup coming from? Is one of the disk brake bolts magnetized? I do not see any other magnet down there.

Thanks

Check the leads & contacts at the battery. Clean them with a scotch bright pad if oxidized. In my case it limited full power to the starter and wouldnt turn the engine over

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Hi,

Tried posting this under a new thread, but got no replies.

I am running the Wings silencer with small tip and the stock air filter with desmog. I am going to try a K&N filter. Is the flow of the K&N different enough to require a remap to a more open filter setting? Is there anyone in the STL area that can do a remap?

Thanks,

MrHix

The 690 wheel pickup is non-magnetic in simple terms. It appears the sensor has three wires, two provide power to a coil in the sensor and one returns a pulse from the coil induced by the passing of the rotor bolt head. Six pulses per revolution. It could be one of the wires is broken.
My interpretation of the wireing diagram would be to check with a meter for voltage on pin 23 and pin 3 to frame ground. One pin should be power to the coil and the other the pluse. You will need to check this by back probing the connector while attached to the cluster and powered on, and the ability to spin the front wheel. Sounds like a three hand job. This is just theory, have not done this myself.

In the spirit of this forum and the great people here If you need an extra cable I have one, but it is off an 08 690E. I can dig it out and send you a pic of it if you want.

Thanks for the offer. Let me do some more diagnostics using Biped's info first.

How'd everyone fix the gas boiling issue with the RR evo-2 tanks? I'm going to order some heat tape but if that doesn't solve it is a ceramic coated header the way to go?

Also what has anyone tried doing to reduce the vibrations that come through the evo-2 tanks?

We have ridden both EVO1 & EVO2 in many hot countries,Morrocco,Tunisia,and Australia,and not experienced any gas boiling issues,can you give an idea of what has happened,and what temperatures etc,as it is not something our customers have informed us about

What vibes are you talking about???

Maybe you are ridding to slow!!!!!
Turn your right wrist and make that 690 RUN !!!!!!!!

just joking

Never had it happen ,
What pipe are you running????
I ran a FMF and Akra with carbon gaurds
I would just wrap the Head pipe if you Ceramic coat the Head Pipe you will KILL your muffler 5times as fast
But then you could install a Rally Low pipe.
" I do have a custom LOW Rally pipe I will sell you

Probably wont, but the K&N does not filter worth a crap.
