J-

Do you have a link or photo of the check valve you are using?

Seems as though the location of the filter and air intake would be somewhat restrictive? I'm running the full Akra system with header.

Would tying into the rear vent nipple be the only way to feed into the rear tank from the auxillary?

Between those pics and Noya's this is very helpful and much appreciated. Thanks!

Looks like he adapted an old 640/660 Rally bash plate?

If you want one specifically made for the 690, Rock Hard Rally Gear has a really nice one, albeit pricey.

Does it have to be in the NW? No interest in having one shipped to you?

I had my 09 690 shipped in from Cali to WI for a very reasonable $500 thru Shipbikes.com who I highly recommend for most excellent service
