Awesome, hard to find such good dealers these days.

Noah,
That's good service and luck.....it would take me three weeks to get parts

Also following your RR and digging it.....latest intel suggests Croatia in the summer is the ticket

Have fun riding the slopes....

Might want to replace that roller

Take this FWIW - especially as it is based on one picture. To me it looks like the surface of the roller is starting to fail and part of it is starting to flake off. Failure mode is often described as "brinneling" and basically the surface of the roller has a bunch of micro fractures and the metal starts spalling off as the fractures connect. Also looks like there is a matching track on the cam below it. Generally caused by excessive loading of the surface of the material.
Would recommend replacing the roller. Also check the other rollers as well for similar surface cracking indications.
Just out of curiousity - what weight oil are you running?

I have 1700 km to Tbilisi Georgia then I won't be riding for 4 months to rebuild the suspension and whatever else is needed. It seems like my only option would be to get to Georgia then order parts if this should be replaced. Your thoughts?

I think I have just come up with a design for an external fuel pump /duel pump/ manifold for multiple tanks its so simple .

Now I just have to get it out of my head and on to paper

I was able to replace both rocker arms last night. I have a theory about the increased loading.. I don't think the "automatic decompression" is laying completely flat when the motor is at speed.

The cam behind it was ok but there was some scaring on the decomp.

I am running 10W 60 Motul right now. Its been either that or Motorex 10W 60

It's really just another tank/ manifold that sits under the throttle body that the pump sits in with the Reg as the access hole
To the pump it will need to hold about 500ml .

So I'm thinking of a tube with reg at one end and pump at the other , I,ll see if I can mock some thing up , so the great minds of the ADV ride can refine and suggest .

I have one of the other newer design batteries...brand slips my mind. The size is about the same as the original but if weighs about 80% less. It is so light in fact that i thought it was a display battery when it arrived

Weight is one of the reasons I'm thinking of upgrading but need it to be reliable also, dont fancy being stuck with no option but to push wish the 690 had a kicker, would be near perfect then
