I think the switch changes ignition timing to get different HP curves.

You can get a map switch mounted to your handlebar to make switching maps easy. I use it to select the soft mode whenever I ride single track or really nasty desert terrain.

Good Quality Battery

I'm looking to get a battery for my 2008 690 Enduro. I don't want anything super fancy or feather weight, just a reliable battery.

What brands do you guys trust and where do you buy from?

Is it illegal to cut down wood in that area?

On the national forest up here you can cut down wood as long as it isn't inside an active timber sale area, regardless of size.

That is good advice. My current shop is 20x20 and it would be nice to have a larger shop depending on prices. But I'm not rich so anything over $5,000 is really a stretch.
