If the 690 was 15kg lighter and the same price as the 500exc I would purchase one today.
I like the 690 but the price and weight are just a bit on the high side.

Yeah I like the 690, but it is quite a bit more expensive than the 500 at least in Australia. I also like the reduced weight of the 500.
Still on the fence.

Surely the 500 EXC has quite a bit more torque than the 350 EXC, so I'd imagine the stock gearing should be ok on the 500 in the dirt, probably also depends of the type of trail riding you are into.
