The 685 kit is probably the better route to go in the long run. The 688 kit is really only made to be used when your 685 wears out. Unfortunately the 685 kit is backordered temporarily and I'm kind of impatient to get this bike running again. :) Plus, the 688 kit was $5 cheaper. Gotta stick to my budget!
I chatted with Eagle Mike on the phone briefly, and he said the 685 kit is getting a new stronger piston material, which is why it's currently out of stock.
People might have different thoughts on this, but that was my decision process.
