I'm not so much a quantity guy as I'm a quality guy. The power characteristics feel much better. 10 Maps pretty much guarantee that you'll find one that suits your ability, personality and mood.

I detested the requirement to continuously do adaptive resets when it would start flaming out because the pressure dropped.

The fact that the Throttle ECI is dumped, means that your wrist directly affects your rate of power change.

As for Tune ECU - Well, if it makes you happy not to spend money on your bike, that's cool with me.

So 15/48 is about .5% higher than 14/45, which won't really be noticeable on a bike. Going down 1 tooth on the CS and staying with the stock rear will lower it 6.66% from stock, which is noticeable.

Now use your multiplication and division skills to figure out the rest from here, or let the Gearing Commander website do it for you...
Lukas,

When I joined AR you told me there would be no math!

I am not the one asking the question I was only trying to help by giving a reference to a site that has lots of computations given various variables along with my own experience with 14/45. I could care less about what the precise ratio is, I use a seat of the pants method which serves me well.

FWIW, I was asleep in "Gradeschool Math" but is seems that you were not.

BTW, I was commenting on the poster's possible change from 14/45 to 14/48, not 14/45 15/48 as you discussed above.

Yes/No. I want low-end snap to lift the front over obstacles. I actually want a softer hit most of the time so that the power's more manageable. Actually I can sum it up nicely: I want the power of a Husaberg 450 in a bike that's tagged that I can go long distances on

so you don't need more power, but a different power, this makes sense to me

Ive had enough of the stupid lantana catching side panel v section at the front of the bike -how stupid nearly ripped them of on numurous ocasions on the weekend-so i have drilled a hole in the top and bottom and zip tied the two together so the lantana will hit the zip tie and deflect off {hopefully}

Not quite sure I get the idea. But then, I'm basically a simpleton. Got any pictures?

690 Vibration

Yes the 690 is a single, and yes, it vibrates! Having said that, what have people found worked for attenuating higher frequency vibrations from the:
  • handlebars
  • footpegs
I have a Renazco seat, and don't notice vibes through my seat at all. As I get older (21,535 days), my arms and feet notice the vibes significantly more than a few years back and after a few hours, it tires me out. No, I am not gripping the bars too tightly!

On my 2009 690R I have checked motor mount bolts (ok), handlebar (ok), etc. for proper torque, and nothing unusual found. I have tried a few different grips and handlebar positions without any noticable improvement. I have also tried 3 different gloves (touring, enduro, etc) without any noticable difference.

I currently have Pivot Pegz mounted, but have not noticed any appreciable difference when swapping the stock pegs back on for a test. The stock pipe is currently mounted, but I also have a LV pipe, and did not find any major difference in vibes between the two.

I am looking at making some much longer rides in the near future so would appreciate any feedback to address the vibration issues.

Cheers

Ride any 640 LC4 KTM and you will build a shrine to the smoothness of the 690
