That is a heck of a deal. I really struggled over whether to go with the 690 or the 300XC-W. My heart wanted the 300, but I went with the 690 because I'm (reluctantly) on the street and highway 90%...

Drove the bike 45 miles home without an issue. Once I got home I checked the cap resistance - 5.15K ohms. Everything seemed tight and no amount of wiggling wires will cause it to stall. Also...
