It's what SMS used when they set my suspension up.

Ok, maybe not different pitch...different though that the 09 and newer collars don't fit. I have not been around the forum too much lately. I will check it out. thanks for the link.

It's just that, here in the US, all the 2012 are gone so anyone wanting a new 690 is going to have to wait for the 2013s to show up, which is likely going to be around March/April 2013.
sales person mentioned that no changes to both MY, even the decals are the same. hmmm
oh well no diff to me. I LOVE IT! =X

That does look pretty sweet. I'd be down for one if somebody can get it done for the 690...

That's why MuffinMan started the 690 Wiki. In an attempt to sort through all the clutter and flufff and have an easy reference directory, so if you have a good bit of info that every 690 owner should have please let him know so he can upload it.
