I scoured the Costa Rica motorcycle rental sites again after reading this.....some outfits have street tires on their 690's....others don't rent 450's unless you are on one of their guided tours....

At any rate, it should be a great trip...

I did this trip a few years ago during 'green' season but only 5 days Land and people great.

Was on 690e with new MT 21's (requested upgrade from more street oriented, not sure but think it was a $50 up charge. Needless to say they were all used up by ride's end.) Bikes were in great condition, we used these guys and they did everything as said - mototourscostarica.com. Did get an FI lamp though bike still ran fine.

Anyone in need of some new oem radiator hoses. I have two of the same hose, both are for sale. Decided no longer need them.

i would encourage any 690 to have the tank bushings and bolts replaced even if no rack or heavy packing system is placed on rear of 690.

Just sayin'...


planning on doing the same, any advise when replacing top and bottom, surely not necessary to remove the tank?

Do not forget to disconnect snap-fit fuel connecter before pivoting tank up,as this can break when pivoting tank up,and make completely sure it re-connents properly,as they can look connected Ok,but will disconnect when riding.

thanks to both of you!, you think the same can be done when changing the fuel pump? taking mega short cuts here, i know, but great to have folks out there who have done this before. I'm sure my time for a contribution will come.

Better yet, find the fuel pump thread and get the fuel filter that fits in place of the quick disconnect. Reason you need to find the thread is because the part numbers are in it.

How many miles before changing out the fuel filter? Maybe I overlooked this in the manual, but couldn't find it.
Thanks -

give us a bit more info on that, just ordered a tank filter and it sounds like you've had probs with yours. if you can pls show us a pic of the inline filter conversion. possible to use that tank filter inline, outside the tank?

The inline filter fix was the hot topic at the exact time our megathread got extricated.
I'd like to see the part numbers for the filter posted up again.
