How many hours on the bike?

Make sure you inspect the bore when you have the piston out, the aluminum can wear and then it will leak again shortly even if you have a new piston and seal in it.

Ideally you want the FH008 model, it has exactly the same size and bolt pattern as the stock 690 regulator but is also MOSFET. More than enough capacity, so you don't need the bigger FH012.
