Perhaps, the 690 lump is one of the lightest engines of it's size and I keep seeing it quoted in the 36-38 kg range. Here's a March 31, 2014 citation for 38.5 kg:...

Good point

I had been sticking to other parallel twins, but the HP2 Enduro and the 950 Super Enduro sort of do prove the point as you mention. Both are around 100 HP and well under 200kg dry, one has to...

There have been a few big, liquid cooled parallel twins before

Not that it changes your basic point that this isn't exactly confirmed to be a 1000cc parallel twin, but there have been a few big twins with respectable numbers. Notably the MZ 1000S/SF/ST and the...

Update on those Tractionators?

Howdy AZ Tom, how did your Tractionator Desert HTs hold up? I've been looking at a set for my 640Adv and I'm curious what you think of them after nine months. :ear Thanks!

Thanks!

Nope, I think that about does it and all good points there. Taking a quick look at Digikey, I see that 0.01Ω and 0.005Ω +/-1%, 5W metal-element resistors are only a couple of dollars so I'll take...

18 inch tube?
