I just do cruiser boards-no tricks or anything. Been doing it for a year with no issues. Was land paddling to work using a "paddle" with a rubber bumper on the end to push with. Got a little to complacent/careless and got the rubber bumper into the wheels and took a tumble wherein I sprained the crap out of my ankle. Walked around on it for 4-5 days and finally went to a sports medicne clinic. Broken fibula. Not giving up skateboard because in truth I have rolled and sprained my ankle much more often just running! Cast off in <2 weeks!

PS.. I hope you get your bike back and they castrate the thief!!!!!

I see the acc1, acc2 behind the headlight but could someone tell me where to get the corresponding male spade connector and silicone(or vinyl) boot on which to attach my gps cable to put into these outlets?

any store that just about sells anything that has to do with electrics.

From mind you just need the 5,3mm flat male plug. boot not needed as its on the loom side, just slide it over.

Out on the road, using tapatalk and it wont search the thread, but does anyone know what resistor works to bypass the clutch switch on the 690? Its bad and wont let the bike run disconnected or the wires twisted together.

Resistor is not a fix. From memory, it is a make or break switch and tied into ECU logic. i.e. has an effect based on gear, revs, etc. Seth had issues where the bike ran like shite when simply connected. Think you really need to fix it instead. Did you change to a different lever?

No new lever. Small crash, wires pulled out. Trying to get home. Thanks anyway.

Tires ???

Riders,
I have gone through:
1) two sets of Pirelli MT 21's (won't buy again)
2) One front MotoZ HT Desert Tractionator (good on hard surface more than loose stuff)
3) Three Motoz Desert HT Tractionator rears (LOVE them on all surfaces...will continue to buy them....long life)
4) Two Pirelli Scorpion XCMH fronts (like them in loose stuff...good on pavement. too)


What is a good front tire (DOT) for mostly gravel and paved riding (No Dunlop 606's) ???

Yes to Heidenaus as a given....but saving those for Mexico
