before you buy the rekluse from them, buy some tires or whatever for at least 100 dollars, then use the 10% off they send as a thank you towards a big order that has the Rekluse.

reduce rear rider sag, stay back on the bike so front can float. No experience with a 250 in the sand, but the more power you have, the easier it is.

Hard to tell, is there a slot for a clip in the pin that is still in correct position? Looks more like rivet master.

While the 690 has the same seat height as my 500, it rides much taller. At 6 ft it's as tall a bike as I would want...so just don't fall over and you'll be fine :D

Never heard of that one. Had an 08 690 duke for 3 years, and am on year 3 of my 690 enduro. Much more common top end failure is rocker arm bearings.
