Whats that on oil filter cover?

Looking at the "show us your 690" thread i come accross this photo and that little grey oil filter cover got my attention as it seems to have an hose coming out of it:



Is it a specific later on model change or a lubricating upgrade?

do you think the aftermarket vinyl decals we put on our plastic would be good?

I think that's the 12+ model years that use the 690 Duke engine w/ more cc and updated oil flow to the head.

dont see why it wouldnt work , except aftermarket decal vinyl is normally a lot thinner than the protection film, depending on who makes the decals of course.

Could it be retrofitted to "older" 690 engines?

If you're thinking of improving oil flow it's definitely not worth it.

That hose is there only because of the oil pressure sensor. It's just a 30 cm piece of hose which has an oil pressure sensor in the end so it makes practically no difference to the oil flow.

Was thinking it might be a connection to the engine head for oil flow improvement.

Need to find something else to spend money...

any positive/negative comments about the cleanspeed brake pedal ?

http://www.cleanspeedeng.com/Brake%20Pedal.htm

cheaper than the RR version and different milling design.

My US '12 690 has the standard cover. One less thing to catch a branch & get ripped off the bike!

These guys were the first ones to make the beefier brake pedal. Compared to the stock this pedal is a world of difference better. The bearings rotate very smoothly and the pedal is bomb proof...it would probably bend the frame if you hit it hard enough...which will of course be the least of your worries as your foot is much softer

I have had the cleanspeed unit since they first came out and all is still well.
