The windscreen is designed for a 2008. My bike is a 2012, which has the same shaped mask at the 2008. It will fit your 2011, but the lower edge at the lamp will not match.

The latest ride

I hope you all don't mind a flood of photos.
I have had some epic rides lately and the big 690 has been on some tight trails.

I am here to tell you the 690 hides its weight well.
The twin RR tanks give the bike girth, but not noticeable weight.
It is heavier to push than a 530 though!
I am using stock gearing - its is working ok at crawling speeds.
My bike hit 96 mph yesterday with a 530 on my ass!
This riding is south of Merritt.









Lake Ethel




Party on

I was skeptical the racks would fit because they didn't seem to match my tail plate holes, but it all went together quite easily with very little fiddling. I probably should have taken a little more off the stand, but we'll ride it awhile.



Has anybody tried that tail section on an old 690? My '08 has the US tailight and the melted left turn signal issue. That one has the same tailight, but looks like the turn signal is raised just enough to miss the exhaust heat.
I can order the European version, but around here, a large brake/tail light is a good thing.

Just get the LED directionals from Sicass Racing. Plug and play.

Thanks for the suggestion. Do I have to use their flush-mounts or is the stem style one okay/small enough?

Personally, I got the flush mounts, and have not had to think about them in about 2-3yrs. After having maybe as many as 10 OEMs replaced under warranty. At first I was hung up on the size, wanting the larger oem style for best visibility, but after installing the flush mounts, they are VERY bright, and as long as you just do the rears, and don't use the new module (only neccessary if you do the fronts too AFAIK), the interval at which they flash is a little quicker, and attracts attention in and of itself. ...If that makes sense.
