    Picked this up today - 2019, with 500 miles and some nice upgrades. I've still got the 1090 in the garage. Only one can stay, my intention is for it to be this one.

    @OscarFox What headlight is that? Does it have high and low beam? I'd like to upgrade my 2019 to an LED, I just want a high and low beam and avoid paying Bajadesigns money if I can.

    It's the Bajadesigns one. It does have a high/low beam but I noticed the high beam indicator is on all the time. I've already committed to a rally fairing, so I'll be looking to offload that headlight if you're interested in buying

    Great fall ride. The 690 is coming together. Still need more budget for good stuff. ;)

    Its a 590 Garmin, but honestly after 3-4 different garmins I really like my phone with apps better. I use the garmin mostly for the large speed readout.

    Has anyone mounted an IMS tank for a 701 onto a 690? - or know of anyone who has?

    Didn't take long for the clutch slave to fail. Of course, it happened to my friend when he was test riding it. The best part is the Oberon part I bought as a preventive install showed up on the same day.

    Does anyone have recommendation for hardware to tap into the alternator to charge usb devices, GPS, headlights etc?

    Warp sells a shortened (supermoto) kickstand for 690/701.

    Not sure I'm following your question exactly, but there's a USB plug on the side of the headlight mask. Behind the mask, there are two sets of accessory wires, one switched and one always hot. I'm going off memory, but I think they are spade connectors.

    Anyone have a wiring diagranm, I would like to charge my phone for navigation, spare battery, and perhaps a heated vest.

    I was looking for plug and play add-ons, but haven't found anything yet.

    The connectors behind the headlight are standard spade (quick-disconnect) connectors and you can get the male part at your local auto parts store. I run TPMS, heated grips, and a phone charger (separate from the inbuilt one) from that switched lead (fused for 10A but that seems generous). I have a battery tender lead and heated gear hookup attached directly to the battery.

    The USB port on the side is pretty plug and play as far as phone charging goes, and maybe spare battery. For nav, you'll need to plug the harness into the acc plugs behind the headlight. I would only run heater gear off a harness connected directly to battery - those little connectors/wires won't handle the draw.

    My dealer put it on for me at no charge :clap
    I talked with the mechanic and he said it was a quick swap. I had read the instructions and I would think it’s about a 20 to 30 minute job with a beer. Everything you need comes with it.
