Have you tested your theory? Which part grinds first if bike is on its side? Would a fork crash-pad help?

I'm not a 690 rider. Just thinking that sacrificial parts that protrude might help...

Pic's wanted..

Looking for pics of a 690 with Evo 2 tanks/shrouds and fenders/mask all in white. This is without the full faring kit, just tanks and shrouds. Especially with the RR White graphics kit.

Also, can someone school me on the quality of the RR graphics kit. @ $300+ for the set, they better stay awhile, not peel and look super sharp.....

Mine have been on since August and have not peeled or bubbled. They are also one of the best fitting kits I have applied.

Slack in OEM speedo unit cabling/wiring?

I've got an EVO 1 kit I'm going to order - but I have a question for those who've bought the RR fairing kit. Should be the same whether it's EVO 1 or 2.

How much slack is there in the OEM speedo unit's cables and wires - in order form the unit to move up into a higher placement in the fairing? I'm travelling at the moment, so I can't check my bike - and would like to know if I need to order any other bits to make the speedo unit work sitting higher.

While supplemented by a GPS and perhaps a secondary odometer unit - to the extent that there is still some basic utility in the OEM computer, it' be nice to mount higher ...

Thanks so much for the help,

CM

I have the EVO 2 fairing and the cables reach without modification to the intended place in the fairing, they wouldnt go any higher.

Thanks - I should have mentioned that mine is the 2009 model - so the smaller digital unit, vs the larger unit shown on post # 427. Still if the 2009 speedo can be pulled up to sit where this one sits, that'd be just fine.




Thanks,

CM

EVO2 Light low beam height

I've been struggling trying to aim my EVO2 low beam correctly. I know the high beam can be adjusted separately with the front torx screw, but the low beam can only be adjusted by moving the whole light around the 4 mounting bolts.

If I aim the low beam properly, then the front mask fairing doesn't fit flush against the light. In fact, the gap is so big, I can easily fit my fingers between them. If I adjust the light so that it fits flush against the fairing mask, then the low beam is aimed very very low. The only way to adjust it properly and have it sit flush against the fairing mask seems to be to somehow move the entire frame up.

Is anyone else having this issue? Is there another way to adjust the low beam?

Yes, with the low beam set correctly I have a large gap at the top. I have shaved away some of the fairing at the bottom to allow the light unit to move forward, but I'm looking for something to plug the gap at the top. Maybe some sort of foam cut to shape? I currently have a section of rubber tubing in the gap around the high beam.

The DHL truck came today and left off a big brown box from the UK at my door.

Got the front sprocket billet, top and bottom tank bolts installed.

Tomorrow I start on the Evo2 tanks and shrouds, minus the faring.

I also got the graphics kit, so my question for you guys with all the experience is: Should I install the graphics before installing the plastic?? Or install the graphics after everthing is on the bike. Seams like it would be easy to bring the parts (tanks, fenders and maska) into my heated office and put them on there....

Also, any other advice on installing the graphics would be appreciated... Any how to's??

Seams like this it the kind of think about the time you get through, you've then learned how to do it.
