I've done a few cars, so I know the drill. Having a good tuner is the key.

He was helping me with my running issues this weekend and we had lots of good ideas about the direction we should go. His harnesses are a work of art!
PLEEEASE make more of them. IŽll buy a set!

Anyone have an intake rocker 75036060044? Apparently there is a backorder and mine is destroyed.

Well, we plan on making a jig to be able to spit out a wiring harness. I suppose Matt could sell them to anyone that is interested and I could share my maps for a small donation. Dyno time is expensive

The plan so far is to use GM weather pack style sensors, because you can buy them anywhere and they're cheap. We're also talking about using an EV6 injector thats off the shelf and easily found for cheap $. Might even build an ethanol map for hill climbing

Sensors.....

Intake air temp......$16

http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/g...tor-p-115.html

It's also a coolant temp switch!

EV1 injector....... $49 You can buy four of them for the price of one KTM injector!

I noticed a small amount of fine dust inside of throttle body when I took my air box off. Is this un-avoidable? Or am I missing something? I have The Uni filter trimmed to fit with a nice bead of grease around the edge. Also the clamp for the boot seems to slide off the back edge every time I tighten it.

I really need to document the build up process of the 690 project, I've got lots of great ideas. Since the wiring is all getting redone, I decided to move the battery location towards the front of the bike. I've never liked the airbox, so I'm building a "rain tray" that will hold the battery, circuit breakers and of course the ECU. Going with a Shorai battery for less weight. The intake will be longer and the filter box will be where the stock battery sits. The rain tray will be easily removed to be able to work on the engine and the filter changes will be super easy. No more heat soaked airbox for me.

Good reading. I now have 2 bikes running the Antigravity batteries. Hasn't been long enough to say for sure how well they will last, but they have been flawless in both bikes so far. The cranking power is unbelievable. I had an Odyssey PC545 in my street bike, which was a big improvement over stock, but the AG is half the size and 7 lbs lighter and STILL outcranks the Odyssey.

The AG in the 690 turns the bike over a bit faster than the stock battery, but it also only weighs 2.5 lbs. Its truly hard to believe that it will work when you pull it out of the shipping box and its so light.

My only regret is that I could have used one of their small format cells instead and used the extra room in the battery tray to carry a spare tube or something.

I just did that exact same thing. Dropped it off in my R&D department and let the EE's play with it some (We do a lot of DC stuff) and they all gave it a

I read that too, but figured screw it. If the EE's didn't like it I'd just expense it and leave it there

690 rider down here had his Shorai fail at 12 months. I'm 'running' a couple of them but they've spent the better part of the last year on a charger while my leg healed.

The air box is made out of three main parts. Left, right (which is essentially a mirror of the right) and the air filter support. All parts are thermo glue together.

I had an air box changed under warranty because the air filter support was not air tight. And it was very hard to see.

I do not use grease, but zipp-seal the hold the filter in place ...

Same here. I will not install that sh... again. It's cheaper and better to loose weight on a stationary bike.

I know for sure the wiring harness is different for 2008, 2011, and 2012 models ...
