1. The overall depth of the 690 housing. The retrofit projector units don't look too long but, they are longer than you would think. I have my adjuster turned all the way up on my 950 to get the light level correct and the projector housing is less than a mm away from the front plastic. (you could cut out the back of the reflector to allow more room and epoxy mount the projector.)
2. Vibration resistance. I'm not too comfortable with the aftermarket projector install procedure to take it out and beat the crap out of it on a nasty trail. It might be ok on the 950 but, I beat the crap out of my 690 and don't think it will withstand the abuse. (you could use some epoxy and permanently mount it to the housing to solve this though.)
