I'm a new 2012 690 owner, going through this thread and slowly checking off things to do to my new wonderbike. I've been at it for days during my spare time but am still up to only page 153, so I'm asking for a little help. I see it's said to be a good idea to remove the main harness ground and sand it and the frame down for a better electrical connection to ground. I found what looks to be the grounding point on the right side of the frame just ahead of the right upper tank mount. Unlike the descriptions I've heard here, my 2012 seems to only have two relatively well insulated wires going to it and the grounding site itself seems pretty clean. It's a pain to get the bolt out of it since it screws out toward the inside and the airbox is definitely in the way, but I'll sand everything tomorrow and put it back together covered with dielectric as recommended.

Question: Is there another location that needs the same treatment that I don't know about/or haven't found yet?

Thanks!

Does anyone have the RR 690 Rally Engine Guard, the one with the water carrier.
Like the idea of having space low down to store tubes/tools or water if necessary.
cheers

I have a '12 also and disconnected all the connectors I could reach and shot in some dielectric grease before I put them back together. If water gets into the plug, there shouldn't be any oxidation problems.

Have fun,
