Shims

Does anybody know if the 450/530 EXC shims fit the 690?

Has anyone found a good tail bag that allows you to easily fuel up but still straps down secure?

Have you looked at the Wolfman E-12?

I replaced the Wolftail or whatever it's called with these side bags and like them.

Pump and lights ok. It almost started 1st time this morning but weakened quickly. I've had a 'feeling' it was on it's way out...

Got it on charge, it appears to be taking the charge ok, will try it in a couple of hours.

Thanks,

Nick.

I had same problem. Once I fully charged the battery, everything was OK.

They are the same diameter (10 mm).

The KTM bag with quick release works for me. I pop it loose and push it back out of the way.

Sent from outside my mind.

Here's some pictures of my wolfman e12s with the msr fuel bottle holsters. These bags are awesome they compress when you don't need all the space and expand to pack more. I find when I'm leaning back and blasting through sand they fit perfectly behind your knees as a support with out limiting movement. If you care about your plastics at all make sure to put some protection under the bags. These scratched the shit out of my new bike.

How much room/volume do you want? Tools only? Day pack?

I was looking for "tools plus" volume - around 10 L. So tools, plus tubes plus a snack plus room to put in a light thermal layer that I might take off from riding the cold highway to the warmer trail.

For that, I have the Kriega 10. It straddles the fuel filler, since I wanted the weight on the rack, but I just pop the front two Fastex quick release and angle it out of the way - no worries. I spend more time fiddling with the key in the cap than I do with repositioning the luggage .



So as the other members show, there's lots of choices - just depends on how much volume you're after.

CM

ps - lots of ideas and discussion here - mostly on heavy luggage, but some coverage to tail bag luggage too ...

Just bought this spare motor off ebay.
Crossing my fingers that is in good shape.
It is listed as a 2012, but I don't think so, because it doesn't have the pressure sensor on the clutch side oil filter cover.
Any thoughts?
What year did the displacement change?

Yep-E-12's loaded fit perfectly behind my knees as well-especially when standing-sort of gives something to brace your legs against.

Yeah, if it doesn't have that visible oil pressure line coming up and off like you mentioned-it's a pre-2012 650cc engine, not the 9
690cc mill.

You may want to rethink the IAT sensor placement, I found that my bike was stalling much easier as soon as the fan kicked on (blowing HOT air at the sensor) when I had the sensor there. I moved it back next to the left hand tank bolt and it seemed to make a difference. Airflow is likely different on yours with the Safari tank, but if you have an infrared thermometer I would get the bike to operating temp and then look for the coolest spot while you leave the bike idling.

edit: you can't see it in the pic because that was before I moved it back by the tank bolt. I had it further forward before (directly behind the fan) and it was tricking the bike into thinking the ambient air was hotter than it really was causing it to lean out (my theory anyway.) I checked it with my infrared thermometer to find the coolest location that the wires could reach. There was a pretty drastic difference from where it was to where it is now. I may have posted temperatures somewhere in this thread.
I'll edit this post if I can find my various temperature readings.

Good tip. I've got a little keychain thermometer. I'll bring it with us this weekend. I suspect yours to be cooler with it being behind that big fuel cell you built. Mine is all open at this time.
