Thanks!!
I mounted my mondo moto LED's here----just had a straight piece of aluminum laying around. Works great.
I'ts mounted to the black bracket the turn signals are mounted too. Took me 5 minutes to make them.

So much for my statement about it being hard to find a spot to mount the lights. I like that a lot. Thanks

Are these the lights you have?
MondoMotos MM10 Bullet LED Auxiliary Light Kit (V2)

They are affordable!

thanks again

There is a locking screw in the adjuster ring, so no need for a separate ring.

That looks like a great mounting spot for the 2014s! Previous years flashers are not mounted with said bracket.

A few photos of the Unifilter Australia air filter for the 690E. Does not have metal form inside and should be easier to clean? I trust the Aussies to make a good air filter as that country is dusty!

I am going to go with a Wings but not yet sure what I want to do about the airbox.

As it was the first 690 they've done it was a bit of a test and trial with my bike, so they supplied me with a 1/16" clutch cover gasket and the new clutch cover cap for free, but I to machine the hole in the old clutch cover to allow for the cap. They were quoting $650 to do any bike, but that may change now if they are supplying a cap, screws and gasket.

Yes-------that's the lites----MM10---very affordable and make daylight out of dark.
More about the bracket I made-----the bottom part of the bracket where it bolts behind the turn signal-------I cut a slot instead of just drilling a hole---that way you can just loosen the turn signal nut and slide the new bracket in there---------if you drill a hole you'd have to disconnect the turn signal wire to get it thru the hole------or cut the wires---this was much easier.

How I wired them in and everything else I've done to my 2014 is on my webpage here:

Ok. Next time I install one for someone I'll film it :P

Actually.. There's a guy I met in Chain Mai with a 2014 and he just got the cam chain tensioner in the mail... Let me send some emails. No promises though.

Do these bikes really need a manual cam chain tensioner? Have there been any reported stock tensioner failures on these bikes we know of?

No clue how common it is, but mine just failed last week with about 8500 miles.

I'm trying to bleed the clutch as per:

1) Remove clutch master cylinder cover.
2) Put small hose over slave bleeder valve and other end into empty jar.
3) Open slave bleeder valve and sqeeze clutch lever until it hits handle bar.
4) Close slave bleeder valve.
5) Release clutch lever.
6) Repeat steps 4 ~ 6 about 15 times until clutch lever feels good.

Where's the friggin slave bleeder located????
