I'm running Rox Risers and I think that is about as high as you can go without getting longer cables. I did move the cables for the throttle and brake to the backside of the bars and at full left lock the cables are snug but cause no issues.

What was the result of going to an AKRO map? I hear all sorts of things about how it doesn't do anything, to....it ROCKS, to....it hurts gas mileage...to it doesn't hurt gas mileage, just gives more power and response.

So I'd really like to hear from ppl who have actually done it and what they think about it?
With my 690 how I ride the bike plays a major part in milage. I get as bad as 32 MPG and as good as 50 MPG. I've got the latest Akra map with a LV slip on and the Uni foam filter.

Hmmmmm,

Could be . . .

Maybe use some duct tape to hold the swingarm bolt in from the other side? Or buy the "special screw."

Good luck,

The Lynx is one of the better options I guess, but I don't really think it matches the overall design of the bike. Maybe I'm a bit anal, but if I'm not anal about my bike what is there to be anal about!? :P

Ok thinking about it looks likely it’s a voltage issue, so checked all wires and connections but to be fair all looked good. Have fitted a new battery and regulator/rectifier all seems to be running great now, but only time will tell



Cheers All

Nice job Louis. If you haven't done so already, Its a good idea to run a separate ground all the way from the regulator to the battery ground. I do this on all my bikes and never have a problem with frame grounds getting loose or corroded.

just wondering if anyone else has had problems fitting the 690 bars risers from adventure-spec ?

maybe i am unlucky but the bolt holes need to be 1mm further towards the centre.

did i get a bad batch ?

Mileage.

best mileage i got on the bike was with the stock map, stock exhaust, and stock air filter with knobby tires. managed 65 mpg riding 60 mph on a paved road. Worst mileage was 30 mpg running flat out for extensive periods of time in the Australian Safari Rally with Michelin desert tires, Rally Mousses, and a custom Beaney map (RIP) in the computer...FMF pipe, and twin foam air filter.

Advice

In all of the incredible technical knowledge traded here, that I have benefited greatly from, not one person ever decided to mention that it isn't a good idea to mount your lic plate vertically

Looks to me like you used to have a problem, but it appears to be solved.

Look on the bright side, you still have your left turn signal (although I cannot imagine how). Once you destroy the tail light and get the Euro version you can mount your plate vertical again.
