    My bike has been sitting for a while and I didnt put any stable in the gas. Am I going to have to pull the carb off and clean out the jets?

    are they for attaching luggage or just for protecting the swingarm from your boots/boots from swingarm?

    I know the stock plastic ones rub on the swingarm and will eventually wear a hole through

    Yes full clearance of the swing arm and excellent location for straps. I use them to attach the forward strap of my GL Mojavi. Recent 4 day 600+ mile DS trail ride with this setup and no issues.

    I will take some more pictures and post them of the 690 w/ boot guards and bags loaded.

    I have pulled these boot guards out after mounting them to the frame to get them into a position that I like for the application. As built, they, like the plastic OEM units, are close to the swing arm, but the nice thing about metal... is it stays where its bent to... for the most part. :freaky

    EVO2 tanks, KTM Rally Replica fairings, tower above, = ADVLite.
    Road book holder, ICO, GPS and the stock dash will be installed.
    Should be the perfect all-rounder save some knarly singletrack.
    I know you would do that also, but I'm pretty beat up from my youth.
    I want to do some roadbook rides this season. Somethng different.
    I have a lightweight bike for that ST stuff.

    The vertical hose is the vent hose for the rear tank, and won't get caught up in the spring. The horizontal hose is the transfer line between the rear than the the forward rally tanks. Its a tight fit, however hose is secured to the frame and will not come in contact with the spring either. I had ran the hose on the outside if the frame previously, however didn't like the exposure to other things unexpected so I moved it into the frame/shock area.... not much else to do with it.

    I’m thinking about the KTM gel seat, as one option for making long hauls a bit more humane ...<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    Is there someone out there who is using one, and could let me know how much more comfortable they are than the stock bread knife ... ?

    Those do look great. By the way, whose foot rest extensions are on there? Thanks and Happy New Year

    Here I am.

    It is a tiny little bit more confortable due to the more rounded shape.

    So, instead af sitting on a squared wooden beam you will find yourself sitting on rounded wooden pole...

    My '08 690 has run like crap for the last year.
    I've done all the tuning with TuneECU, tried different maps
    etc.

    The bike still stalls when off the throttle.

    Can anyone recommend a tuner in the Tucson area who can help me
    get this bike running right again ?

    To clean the injector, can I use injector fluid as used for cars that you add to the petrol, TPS reset is the 10 min udkes reset?

    Happy New Year everyone!!!!



    If anyone is looking for a set of RR EV0 1 tanks, drop me a PM, Just the tanks.
    I figure someone might be looking for a cheaper way to have these tanks on their bike and save a little money at the same time. You can buy the fuel tank adapter fitting on the RR UK site separately, the rest is fuel lines and a main mounting stud(threaded rod).

    +1 on the TPS. I don't know how it's set on these bikes but on my carb'ed 950 it ran like crap if the TPS was off.
