    Tried posting this under a new thread, but got no replies.

    I am running the Wings silencer with small tip and the stock air filter with desmog. I am going to try a K&N filter. Is the flow of the K&N different enough to require a remap to a more open filter setting? Is there anyone in the STL area that can do a remap?

    Thanks,

    MrHix

    The 690 wheel pickup is non-magnetic in simple terms. It appears the sensor has three wires, two provide power to a coil in the sensor and one returns a pulse from the coil induced by the passing of the rotor bolt head. Six pulses per revolution. It could be one of the wires is broken.
    My interpretation of the wireing diagram would be to check with a meter for voltage on pin 23 and pin 3 to frame ground. One pin should be power to the coil and the other the pluse. You will need to check this by back probing the connector while attached to the cluster and powered on, and the ability to spin the front wheel. Sounds like a three hand job. This is just theory, have not done this myself.

    In the spirit of this forum and the great people here If you need an extra cable I have one, but it is off an 08 690E. I can dig it out and send you a pic of it if you want.

    Thanks for the offer. Let me do some more diagnostics using Biped's info first.

    How'd everyone fix the gas boiling issue with the RR evo-2 tanks? I'm going to order some heat tape but if that doesn't solve it is a ceramic coated header the way to go?

    Also what has anyone tried doing to reduce the vibrations that come through the evo-2 tanks?

    We have ridden both EVO1 & EVO2 in many hot countries,Morrocco,Tunisia,and Australia,and not experienced any gas boiling issues,can you give an idea of what has happened,and what temperatures etc,as it is not something our customers have informed us about

    What vibes are you talking about???

    Maybe you are ridding to slow!!!!!
    Turn your right wrist and make that 690 RUN !!!!!!!!

    just joking:evil:evil

    Never had it happen ,
    What pipe are you running????
    I ran a FMF and Akra with carbon gaurds
    I would just wrap the Head pipe if you Ceramic coat the Head Pipe you will KILL your muffler 5times as fast
    But then you could install a Rally Low pipe.
    " I do have a custom LOW Rally pipe I will sell you :deal

    Probably wont, but the K&N does not filter worth a crap.

    is there a small inline fuel filter on the 690? Not the one in the tank.

    I was concerned that the exhaust pipe would heat up the tank, but I can put my fingers between the pipe & tank and it doesn't radiate enough heat to be a problem...

    I know this has been talked about before, and opinions vary. But, fwiw I also run the small tip Wings, and no SAS or Canister and still have the stock map (and snorkel). Rather than the K&N, I rotate between a couple of UNI's.

    ~23.8-26 celsius (75-80 Fahrenheit). Heavy stop and go traffic the radiator fan was running almost constantly. I filled all three tanks on the bike that morning and had about 30 miles on them. After about 50 minutes riding through stop and go traffic gas was leaking out of the right RR tank vent and cap. The cap was installed tightly.

    When I removed the left tank cap I could see the gas level was low and I could see it boiling when I started to take the right cap off gas was pouring out so I retightened the cap, pulled over and let it cool down for five minutes before continuing home. Later in the evening I looked at the tanks again and the left and right tanks had equal amounts of fuel. I had this happen on my 950 adventure when I installed a second radiator fan on the right side.

    I'm running the stock header pipe with an FMF Q4 slip o with an EVO-1 airbox and FI map. 2012 690 Enduro at 1830m elevation (6000ft).

    I am curious to see if I'll have similar problems on trails in the mountains where my 950 had issues with heat and boiling the gas.



    As far as vibrations coming through the tanks it is very annoying, no one else has experienced this? they are not minor; and I'm running a TKC-80 up front and a Metzler Sahara 3 on the back, both are balanced. The stock side panels did not vibrate from what I could tell.
