Rally Raid Steering Damper

Hi All

I received my Rally Raid Products steering damper kit yesterday (RRP 020). No instructions were included to fit the post and pin. They appear to be slow to answer e-mail requests for the instructions. Anybody here got a link to installing their stuff or got original instructions that can be shared?

Grab handle bolts spinning in the gas tank

As you can see below, 2 of the bolts that hold my G-iT rack on, have backed out on their own. When I went to tighten them back in I screwed the pooch somehow and they are now spinning the inserts that they are screwed into. I HAVE to get these out. I broke off my tail light assembly which means that I need to remove this rack in order to do so. Has anyone had any experience in drilling these bolts out? I'm at a loss.

I'd like to hear from you.

$223 more for a 2012 690 kit? One that doesn't fit?
My friend has 2012 tank kit and the kit includes older modell side panels with 2012 decals.

Thanks for the shock/linkage info.
Can we get some more detail on this? Maybe post a mini tutorial, as there are more of us who would like to bypass the rollover sensor.

pretty ez if you have the spark plug wrench from the tool kit and a torque wrench,iirc it gets tightened 18 nm. Remove 4 bolts holding airbox, plus the regulator for access to one of those bolts. Loosen rear clamp between airbox and throttle body, lift out airbox. Pull off rubber thing over spark plug, kind of a pain getting this out,there are indents to use a wrench for better leverage, not a big deal if the wire comes out as it will go back in.Rig up torque wrench spark wrench. Blow compressed air,maybe solvent to clean area around plug. Remove. Hand thread new plug,tighten but definitly dont over tighten

Hmmm... Can you ask on how they fitted up?

I would say the side panels are a special design for working with the twin tanks?
When the front of my side panels are mounted up, the rear mounting points a almost 2"off!
I can almost bend them to fit, but not quite.
I can get the side pictured to fit.
The other side is worse & I haven't been able to align to bolt the rear into the top tank mount. Grrr

I should have read between the line on RR stuff 'barely' fitting & sketchy replies to customers.

Awesome, thanks Skinny. Wonder why they would send it out without instructions? Did you have to cut the plastic cover to make space?

The plastic covers on each side of the ignition switch don't have to be trimmed, but the rubber grommet gizmo that slips over the ignition switch won't fit quite right since the switch is moved back by the thickness of the Rally Raid mounting pin...My 2008 model didn't have any of that trim over the switch...I'm not sure when it was added.

I had to remove the coolant tank in order to get the ignition switch off.

I made up this to plug into the loom so to keep all connectors intact.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I don't have either the tool kit (so no spark plug wrench) or a torque wrench...

Those two wires have the resistor soldered between them, and that plug connects to the one that used to go into the sensor?

Just stick a flat head screwdriver in the notch on the spark plug cap and pop it off. Use a 14mm deep socket and flexible joint in between to 3" extensions and you wont have to remove the air box.
