    That looks like the future is here already. What the heck is taking KTM so long? :huh Oh, I forgot only paid $12,000 for my 690. I am unworthy of the better system. :waysad.

    On another note: The current Dakar 450 KTM are fuel inj.?

    Nope, 450 Rally is still using the good old 41mm Keihin FCR-MX pumper carb.

    That's fn funny.

    LED aux light assist. These are VisionX mounted with aluminum angle I hit with sander and sandwiched with the hand guards. Don't drink much juice, big lite light. Reach into junior high wiring behind candle container to tap harness connectors - ez pleezy.

    I drove to Boston this morning to help dyno my 690 and get the base maps built. The results so far are excellent! The throttle off idle is very, very crispy. I've never had it feel that good with TuneEcu or the Vortex, it was amazing.
    It made 57HP at 6500 RPM but we encountered a strange problem where the Pulser coil voltage gets a little crazy and throws the timing signal off a bit.
    We found the problem, so its getting more dyno time tomorrow to finish up the map.

    The power and torque curve is really smooth and parallel, right to 6500. Once the pulser is adjusted, it will pull to redline cleanly and make even more power. My best guess is 60-61 HP at the rear wheel tomorrow. The exhaust is a Q4 with the insert and the simple UNI pod filter, I wonder what we'll make with an open exhaust:lol3 The motor is bone stock, no cams or big bore kits.

    Toying with having mine dyno tuned as well. I'm interested to hear all about it and how much and in what areas they made adjustments.

    I found 64 HP on Bikez at 7500 rpm and as I recall, rated HP is at the crank. I'm showing 57 at the wheel and I've still got another 1000 rpm to go yet.

    Everybody rates their engines at the crank, so you are doing very well already. You got a street tire on there for the dyno runs, right?

    Very very nice... I'm wondering what that thing will do with an Evo2 Cam. I saw a sheet from an SMC with 63 RWHP with an Evo2 Cam and DynoJet PCV (which sucks)... You're already there without the cam.

    What the cam does is take the power off the bottom end and put it on the top end. Good for some applications but not so good for lugging around in the dirt. Leave that cam for the sumo/track guys.

    Exactly, I'm looking for mid range and smooth power delivery. The goal has been met, the peak HP is just a bonus.
