While it's tempting, think I'm just gonna stick with the stock bore. Just picked up a Gixxer 600 for my go fast demons.

Nice one Gustavo, I really like that fairing setup!! Is that home made, looks like modified 990 parts?

You are going through bikes pretty quick these days, you still got the big Katoom?

Got the opportunity and sadly traded in my 950 for this 690... and i'm already missing it

Kept the 990, thought about turning it into an S, got the parts but just can't get used to this 990 EFI sh#t... maybe i'll trade it for another 950...

Funny you mention i'm going quickly through bikes, this morning i saw my old farkled up DR650 racing a local baja event... it didn't bring a tear to my eyes. LOL

About the fairing, the side panels are based on the big Adv ones, the nav column and lighting is a Rally Raid product, and the front fairing is from Touratech.

It's an interesting ride, sure is alot lighter than the big twin, and that front wheel just keeps going up.

Nice - I just ordered mine yesterday. Carbon/gripster/orange thread combo. Hope it's the same seat height as stock and the narrow section is far enough back to get my legs down.

Just connected TuneEcu to my 690R and noticed that it has loaded the 2009 stock map., however the bike has akrapovic exhaust, foam aifilter and powerparts airbox cover, does not stall, sputter, backfires, or anything.

Shouldn't it act all fussy with these mods and stock map?

It shakes a bit, nothing excessive, but its a single cylinder...

I'm almost inclined not to touch it rather than loading the akro map. If it gets better, it gets dangerous...

$10 says its lean, especially higher in the revs.
