According to FMF, there is no need to remap for this setup. It's the same setup I am running and I have no issues with the factory map. Same with KC-10ENG on his 690

I am running the same (except I have the KTM foam filter made by uni) on my 2010, with no map changes. runs good, no stalling in the woods, runs right up to 105 on the speedometer ( I know it isn't accurate)

Stock map...as others have mentioned, there shouldn't be any need to remap.
There is something going on with the need to open the throttle when warm starting....
my 2008 690R has never needed any throttle to start hot or cold...
The only problem is warm starts...once it's started it runs just fine...
It is currently at the dealer for an attempt to identify the problem...

I was thinking about trading an '05.5 ADV for a new 690 but after reading the last 20 pages of this thread I think I'll go another route.

On my 2012

Funny how the off road map, or Akra map is available and used for an Akra pipe.
Yet FMF Q4's literature say the stock map is ok.

Anyhoo, I switched to the off road map with my Q4 & Rally Raid air filter.
The RR lets a lot of air in, and has quite the honk to let you know so.

My bike barks, honks & run killer through the gears but stalls & lurches at low rpm's.
My dealer is gonna do the sniffer next for dialing in the low end.
Stay tuned.

I think the soft 1 setting may be the ticket for technical woods rides to tone the bike down a bit...

You're probably not man enough for it anyway. Thanks for letting us know about your choice though, I know it made my life richer

I have a new one. The bike is much better than a 5.5 or my 04 950. It is much more refined and has better fit/finish. It runs better, its probably quicker to 100mph, weighs 150lbs less and still has the great suspension.

It IS a single, though. It's really vibey the first 100 miles. Slightly smoother the next 400 miles. Not quite as smooth as I hoped at 1200 miles. Of course this all has to do with speed. People tell me it is broken in smooth about 4k miles. We'll see.

I've done two dual sport rides. There is no comparison with a 950 in that environment. Likewise, a 200 smoker isn't a fair comparo in the tougher stuff either.

Yesterday I snapped a photo of the 690 in the garage and it looked like this.




Today it looks like this.



If you all don't mind I'll still lurk around here and bug you a bit.

I ran out of things to do on the 690 so added another cylinder to work on.
Every time I get rid of a big single I miss it. Just fun bikes.
