I ride a 14t without the rubber no issues. There is a bit of wear on the swingman guard but have yet to wear through after a few thousand miles.

A buddy with an earlier year model says he's hit 116 on the speedo. I don't believe it though.

Wow, 75mph at 5.5 rpm is great, my current bike is at 7k rpm at 75mph, thanks for the info, much appreciated.

Trying to tweak my sad suspension tonight. The shock rebound adjuster only has 13 clicks and then it stops/seizes. Any tricks to freeing it or do I need to send it off to a shop?

Shift Lever Leak

I have a bit of oil oozing from around the shift lever shaft - presume it is the Shift Seal Ring (0760142461) that is the culprit. Does anyone know if this is an easy replacement - just pop out the old seal and push in a new one - could it be that easy????

There is a good chance it has already broken not the best design ,
The seizure is is one side mashing against the other

Yeah you're probably right, the hourglass shaped screw has separated internally. I'd be interested in the Tractive stuff but $1700 USD is a bit rich for this kid.

I need to check but I think I ran 15/42 gearing on my 690 when I raced in australia and the bike topped out at 102 mph. i was running a Michelin rally tire and rally Mousse on the back which is a heavy setup and may have cost a little top speed. I was running Beanie's efi map on the stock computer and it might not have been fully tuned for 9000 rpm running. I have the head off the bike right now and there are no signs of damage or detonation etc so I don't think there were any lean running issues.

2012 with stock gearing at 60mph = 4,500 rpms.

When I switched to a 42 rear sprocket, 60mph = 4,000 rpms.

Apologies for being a geek.

Hope people didn't miss the two links in this post.
Here is a link showing the speeds for rpm using 15/42 gearing.

Just changed the last entry in the browser URL to 15r42 to get the new speeds. zxrider11 is correct, 15/42 gearing gives 59 mph at 4000 rpm.

I'll take a look tonight...I definitely wasn't running 126 mph. I am likely wrong on the ratios.


Checked last night and I have a 44 sprocket on the rear. Pretty sure I have a 15 tooth on the front. The bike topped out at 102 mph on the ICO and I am not 100% sure of the rpm but it was near the top of the range.

I use 16:44 and run about 4,000rpm at 100kph (60mph) ...

Can cruise comfortably at about 110-115kph, with the motor just chugging along ...

Good dual sport gearing for this bike IMO ...

Makes 1st-3rd more useable for fire trails ...

Best gearing site I've seen. Unfortunately I don't see the post-09 690s on here, but bit of searching (or comparing your rpms/speed to what is shown for '09's results) and you could likely learn if they are different. Lots of info on this site, different combos, chain lengths, chain/sprocket wear, etc. Load the rpm chart to see what rpm is at different speeds in different gears.
