Also, what kind of coolant is in these bikes from the factory? Would it be wise to flush it and refill with engine ice?
There is a specific mapping for the full Akra system. If your dealer remaps have them show you on the computer the program. it will have the date and version thereof. Dealers have been known to install what they thought was the right map but wasn't. Charging you $150 seems excessive IMHO.

They installed the 2012 evo1 maps when I purchased the bike and removed all the emissions crap. I believe there are only two akro maps, evo1 and evo2. The custom bike shop runs a dyno on the bike and sets up/makes a map accordingly. This normally costs 250 but since I know the guy he will do it for 150. Nearest dealer to me is 3.5 hours away so any suggestions are welcome.

Anyone here put a "E" dash on a "R"? What all did it entail?

I know it's kind of crazy as the E dash isn't that reliable but I've got a new one from my '08 I want to put on the '11.

I probably need a psycologist for this... while there is no logical explanation , I just like riding with the "E" dash at night... it makes me happy... when riding alone for long periods in the darks it's my nighttime companion... my buddy!

DR650 ... ?



Double the HP ... ? Are you replacing its engine ... ?

That's what I meant when I said I know of no other motorcycle where you can improve so much on the performance reliably for so cheap.

Obviously $1,500 on our 690's isn't going to increase hp by a very much % (or course it's harder to go up when your already at the top ). The WR450 & XR650R's can be improved a significant percentage for cheap over stock as they are so corked up.
But nothing I know of can improve as much as the KLX...

690 parts

KTM 690 E parts needed.

I need the complete head light assembly for a '08 E.
Anyone have one have one for sale ?

I could also need a set of triple clamps for the E or R , a set of
forks for the E or R and the complete front brake system ( rotor,
caliper, master cylinder )


I've got a nice set of 2012 SX forks ( twin chamber ) 12" travel
with the SX caliper, disk and master cylinder/ lever.
This is a great set up for a rally bike.

Max

Might be able to help you with this part. I just switched over to a Lynx from Britannia Composites.

I was thinking about hanging on to it for a back up in case of ...... anything, I guess.

I'm tied up most of this week and out of town for the weekend. If you can wait until next week to sort it out, I may be able to help.

Stupid question but where's the diagnostics connector on the bike for the tune ecu cable?

And does anyone have the '12 Enduro Evo-1 map files they could send to me? I only see generic year evo-1 map files on tune-ecu's website and am hesitant to use those on 12 and up since the engine displacement and stock maps changed.

just getting started

2013 690 Enduro R. Completely stock. 600 miles. Wings can at Fedex to be delivered tomorrow.

I remember some posts about setting up the bike after installing a new slip on exhaust. Not sure of the order... 1) Engine off... open throttle all the way then back off slowly. 2) Disconnect battery ? 3) Hook battery up and start. Idle 15 minutes. 4) Ride (how many Revs?) Please let me know how you did it.

Also, riding in Florida rain to work on those RalleyCross tires was not confidence inspiring. They look like a 90% dirt tire and fine for weekend dirt.
* Looking for something better for weekday commuting on wet roads. Any thoughts on; Metzler Enduro 3 Sahara, Pirelli MT 90, Hidenau, Shinko or whatever.

If this is not the correct forum for 690 tires. Let me know if I should go somewhere else.

Makorider-happy for you and your new steed.

That stock rear won't last long. I like my Heide's and 606's on the front.

The Wings...you're gonna like it. Are you swapping out the air filter just yet?

Just the Wings for now. What size Heidenau (140/80 Tube)? You're in the rainy South East I see. How is this combo on wet roads. Would you commute 40 miles one way with that 606? Good to hear from you Dirty. Appreciate your posts.
