When I installed the current fuel pump, I'll admit that I thought the quick disconnect fitting in the tank just ahead of the regulator didn't seem as snug as I'd like, but I could be imagining things. If the line pressure isn't supposed to bleed down that quickly, my guess is that fitting is not 100%. But I really don't know. It could explain some of the hard starting though, if I turn on the key, let it prime then wait a couple of seconds while I screw with my gloves or whatever, then the line pressure would drop, meaning my one and only one injector blast is at less than half the intended fuel pressure and thus maybe not enough fuel to catch.

Ideas anyone?
I'm just gonna give this one bump to see if anyone knows if this is how the regulator is supposed to work.

All I know about rewinding is that it's out of my scope and could only lead to bad things if I tried it.

I haven't seen any mention of an aftermarket upgrade. Perhaps my concerns are unnecessary?

I remember this discussion from the big thread and believe the consensus was that we've safely got about 100w of additional accessory load before there may be charging issues.

Thanks, Barman. I thought I had read something around that number.

Not sure of the additional total watt load (maybe 130 watts total), but I run heated gloves, and a liner from Warm n safe without a problem. I also have a Zumo GPS with the XM radio option that is placed in this mix. Now I will say when I turn my heat trolley up all the way I get a bit of a flicker on the headlight (when on high beam) in sync with the heat trolley's cycling. To be honest I'm not all that concern and been running like this for a while.

I'm sorry not much to do with the heated grips but them alone should not be a problem (their usually 30 watts total).

Hope that helps!!

Not 100% sure, but is probably a spring loaded 1-way valve. Maybe there is debris lodged in the valve, keeping it from sealing.

I know I just lost 20lbs (now I'm down to 203 lb) and just need to lose 8lb more to 195lb. So far this last 8lbs has been a real challenge with the holidays being here! I'm hoping with losing all this weight and working out more 'that my endurance will increase dramatically riding off road.

Or you could just order the "enhanced" cylinder direct.

Does anyone know if Rekluse has any plans to build a kit for our 690?

I can't remember where, however, I remember reading that they looked into it and determined that it wasn't possible due to the slipper clutch and the amount of power. I also remember another company looking into it and having the same issues.

yep they looked at it several years ago and decided that due to the complexity of the slipper clutch they could not do it. I don't know if the 690 Rally clutch is a slipper...if not it might be possible to convert to a 690 setup and then get a rekluse made...again not likely to be a huge customer base for that one.
