Congrats on the new toy

Now, you have some fuel pump experience that will help you with the 500

I'm thinking about getting a 300 exc for the tighter stuff, as well as putting a few less kms on the 690 each year. The 690 for me is a keeper so I want to look after it, but I really do miss going hard and testing myself in gnarly stuff.
You have a 400 as well hey hoots?

For anybody who needs/wants a better replacement piston, I saw that Rally Raid is having some made by Cosworth in the UK, both in standard and higher compression than stock if you want to bump up the power some.




Info is over in the Vendors thread:

I've got an 04 450 EXC ...

The 690 goes most places, but I don't like beating it up too much ...

The 450 has a little lie down pretty much every time it leaves the shed - very tough / simple bike - good for paddock practice, and taking places where little lie downs are par for the course ...

Fi codes. No one has time for that!

So I'm riding along... Nothing exciting, ranch roads... Tooling about at less than half throttle. I get complacent, forget I'm in sixth gear, slow way down, whack the throttle and stall the bike. No biggie.

Snik it into 1st, Start it, take off, feels sluggish, there's an FI warning. Bike starts acting as though it's hitting te rev limiter. Feck.

Stop, shut it down, take a peek for obviously damaged stuff, turn it on, 9 flashes... Start, same behavior. Limp it to a real intersection, pull the phone out and google codes. Induction pressure???

Sit for a few, start it again, no code, finish 400 mile ride/camp, drink bourbon, life is good.

What gives????

9 short, or maybe 9 long? I'm the noob here, but, your physical action of trying to go hard throttle at too low an rpm would have had the accel motor running the throttle plate if I understand how it works.

I'm really not sure. Since it went away, I didn't get to look at it again, and I'm not familiar with long vs short.

I'd plug in and grab the code. The software from Tuneecu is free, but you need a cable.

Here is the info:

RR upper bolt is 12 mm, on the the bushing part

If I recall correctly the bushings I had before were:

23.90 mm OD
12.10 mm ID
25 mm wide

Those were a hair on the loose side - I think I read
on Supermotojunkie that they were making them with
a 24.5 mm OD

Anyone relocated the ignition on their 690 ?

Thinking of doing this, with a HDB top plate,
but it is looking a bit tricky... :(

You just missed the recent discussion. The quote from below is 3 pages back on pg 838. Read forward from there, He rececived some replies.

This would leave a hole where the ignition used to be and I figure that would be an ideal place to put a 12v outlet. Any thoughts?
