Yes the new kit will still accept the older 990 headlight and screen

That looks to be a function of the Tripmaster. Do you have the switch installed?

I have a windshield and not although not a giant am 200lbs and I still get the head shake. More to follow once I play with sag and check the fender alignment. I did set sag when new but things may have settled out since then.

Should I change these myself or have the dealer perform the swap under warranty?

Short clip illustrating the buggered bearing:

Warranty it, never hurts to ask. Just hang out in the shop when they install it, you know provide some oversight in case they start thinking you need a top end rebuild after 50hrs

The 690's have adjustable (two settings) triple clamps. As delivered, they are set to max offset (less trail). Using the smaller offset increases the trail and should improve stability at speed. You can easily check which setting by removing the triple clamp cap (don't loosen the pinch bolt). If the dot is at the rear, they are set to max offset. Changing offset requires disassembly of the front end and gives an opportunity to grease the steering head bearings.

Motovan (www.motovan.com) distribute EBC up here. That means just about any dealer should be able to sell it to you ... Motovan catalog page 828. http://www.motovan.com/catalog/2012%...0En/index.html

Better download the PDF catalogue. Searching with the web tool sucks ...

Different approach to Canister Removal Resistor Wiring

Instead of cutting off the original plug and splicing in the resistor, I decided to take a different approach.
Purchased the matching plug at Ballenger Motorsports. http://www.bmotorsports.com/shop/pro...roducts_id/570
Then simply (but carefully) soldered the resistor (22ohm 1/4 watt) to the terminals and inserted into the plug.
After testing, I wrapped the whole thing in quality electrical tape.

You mean the cap at the center of the top of the triple clamp? Is this procedure outlined somewhere in the manual? I need to check this for sure.
