Yeah, just sold my 500 because I had it set up and rode it just like a 690. Tall gearing, big gas tank cush seat. So, the 690 should be here any month now.

The 500 was worth every penny of $10k.

Only 3000 miles could be an early fuel pump failure. If you have any warranty left, get down to the dealer.
