Had a similar issue with the coil. Totally seems like it is a fuel issue but it's not.

Hhhhmmmm interesting read. This must be why they added ABS to the 2014 690. If it improves offroad breaking then why not have it one there?

Are the 690 and the 1190 using the exact same (or very similar) system? The link to the off road ABS test with the pro rider was an eye opener.

Actually the reason they added ABS ins because in the EU, it's mandated that by 2016 all new bikes larger then 125cc's must have ABS. So that means most of the bikes you see imported into the US will more then likely have it as well.

Just popping by to see what's going on.
Hopefully I'll be a regular around these parts again sometime soon...
Cheers, Barman

Since we have a few wiring guru's posting lately, do any of you gentlemen know where this plugs into??
Ambient air pressure sensor been getting 1 long 4 short flash code..
Rather than strip the bloody thing to find a chaffed cable I thought I would re wire some temp wires first to see if the sensor itself is buggered.

Hey Barman good to see ya back visiting the old stomping ground.

I'm likely to be even less regular around here though as my 690 was collected by the insurance company last week and is most likely going to be written off after I binned it before Xmas. Not likely there will be enough funds available for a while to replace it - hope I don't end up on a KLR

For me, part of the issue with ABS and off-road riding is the awful sensation when going down loose, rocky steep downhills and ABS engaging and just not stopping you at all.

Maybe it's better now.

I think I remember James. Military guy? Piled up the 250 almost hitting a gate that was supposed to be open?

That was a good ride but should have had some more road worthy rubber for that group ride.

I've seen a few tips for getting the 690 to not stall so easily at crawling speeds. Is the general idea drill a few additional holes in the snorkel, new map (which one????), and UNI filter. Am I missing anything?

I have a 2010 with the UNI filter, wings exhaust, have yet to remove the SAS crap. Any advice as to what map I should run? Does drilling the snorkel really make that much more of a difference?

Uni filter wings pipe and akro mapping here, with no stalling issues.
I am yet to do the sas removal as I am unsure if I will block off or filter the offending tubes
