Got it through Rally Management Services
Longer clutch/brake/ throttle lines and cables I guess,

Thanks!
No resisitor required if you have TuneECU and a cable.

Are there any bang-4-ur-buck ways to raise this bike? I'm a bit hesitant shelling out for new forks and stuff

My EU model '08 has that connector too, I've often wondered what it was

EDIT: looks like you're right

Strange, as EU models don't have the canister, I would expect the wire loom not to have the connector alltogether

This means that it must be a way to turn that off in the ECU, right?

Seriously though, what's your sag? (I'd say most scandinavians are a bit heavier than the 690 is sprung for :)
Also, check the rally-raid stuff.


Edit: that was meant for tacomodo, but I haven't figured out how to multiquote yet

Not sure what you mean by sag, haven't got the bike yet. But I'm 2 meters tall, weighing in at around 96kg

Last bike I had I mounted different links on the rear shock to add 4-5 cm, which helped greatly. I haven't manage to find anything similar for the 690.

So far my plan is to find the tallest bar risers I can (hopefully also some that move the bars forward), try to find lower foot pegs, and also get a taller seat. Seat is last on the list as they are ridiculously expensive.

I think maybe you're going to find this bike pretty cramped. If you get the tallest bar risers you can you will also have to get longer cables (I don't know how this works with the '14 fly by wire system though - are you getting a '14?)

As for the seat; its not just for height that it's needed. Your ass will thank you especially if you weigh in at 96kg.

I think it looks better than the RR rear tank - and infinitely better than the Safari tank ...

The additional volume (over RR rear) would also be a good thing ...

My RR rack broke (metal fatigue) - and the RR rack is integrated into the fitment for the rear tank - this Tumbleweed arrangement looks a bit stronger, and is in any case a separate item (called a Wild Burro rack) ...
