I'm autistic, not artitstic. I found a way to live with it but I still can't draw worth a damn

My vision is a siloutte style motorcycle/rider with 690rider.com in block letters.
My Wife is an artist, I'll ask her about making a logo for us.
I'll be working on the house pretty soon if she takes the job

I have finals this week but after they are done I'll get a site up on my webserver. I'm thinking of a wiki style. If it becomes super popular we can move it to a dedicated host.

Good deal! Shoot me a PM when you're ready and I can send you the domain details.

I'm not that popular but I do own a 690R.
I'll be up to contribute some funds and grab some swag.
Can I join the cool club?

Sure.

Lets get the website up before worrying about funds though!

So glad that you bought a 690!


Thanks for stepping up. This will really be a big help to all of us!

On the front of the shirt should be a rider with an ear to ear grin, on the back of the shirt should be a rider swinging a sledge hammer at the same machine.

I'm glad you guys got the lemons. Both mine have been great.

mine was good for the first 10,000 miles of racing and woods riding abuse. Then it popped the water pump seal and headgasket. I am not complaining.

You are probably right. My tires never leave the pavement. I should have got a SM

More on sidestand switch disable....

Ho-hum it must be winter in USA/north..threads are becoming mundane..!!.... thought id follow some others in disabling the sidestand switch...( in a slow quest to reduce ? the ocasional flame-out when racing to a stop )
Another inmate suggested a 1K to 3K resistor to repace the hall switch putting this resisror between the pink and black wires [ there are 3 wires going to the switch pink, black and blue ].
I did a few tests to ceate some understanding and what we have is a blue wire that supplies a regulated 5 Volts from the ECU to power the switch [ the switch is a Hall device [ linear response to a magnet ] coupled internally to a Schimdt trigger level detector that provide a snap action . [ hope im not boring anyone ]. Anyway, at ignition switch on, 5V is sent to blue and without the Hall connected the pink wire also reads 5 Volts. With the Hall switch in place and activated [ stand up ] the pink wire is locked down to 2.50Volts. Black is the earth wire or at earth potential [ 0 ].. I did a few tests to establish the ( voltage ) effect of adding the first mentioned resistor ''cheat '' to ''pull down '' the pink wire to about 2.5 Volts .

3.3K gives 3.02 volts
2.7K gives 2.78 Volts
2.2K gives 2.52 Volts [ test resistors between black and pink ]
1.8K gives 2.27 volts
1.5K gives 2.06 Volts
1.0K gives 1.6 Volts

After all this bull we must conclude that probably the best resistor to use is 2.2k { 2200 ohms } ...a standard value and i used a 1 watt metal oxide type [ most stable ] [ fortunately i carry many of every resistor 1 ohm ...1 Meg ohm at home so its an easy test !! ]
So after all that #&*@# , simply cut wires to stand above connector near shock, solder in 2.2 K ohms between Pink and Black, heat shrink it, then isolate and heat shrink off the blue so it cant short....and Bobs your uncle ....

great report but you lost me after "it must be winter in the USA/North"

Call me lazy but I just bought a pre-made side stand switch and plugged it in.
