    I have a Seat Concepts on Back Order. Sounds like I may be in for the same fit as yours. I'll have to see if there's anything I can do to modify it after I get it.

    Can confirm that you can change the fuel flow on the fly. I was going at a good clip on the freeway running the front tanks when the bike just flat died on me!
    It took me a sec to realize it was that the front tanks ran dry and I switched to the rear tank and kept going. Be warned, the Reserve light comes on right as the fuel pump sucks air. Unlike the 990 tanks where you have a separate reserve sensor higher up, the reserve sensor on the Aurora 450 tanks is on the fuel pump, so it basically gives you like no warning.
    I can see that there is still some gas in there but if the pump is not submerged, it loses suction.

    If you are out on the trail, you can do the thing where you lean the bike over to the right side to drain what remains on the left and then shut the petcock.

    Having said that, the whole Aurora Rally kit is top notch and I'm super happy with it.

    Yeah, brembo. Dual control is nice, I used it on the Clake 2, Rekluse LHRB, and Smokin LHRB and all have the same issue... dual control weakens the hand lever braking power and all have issues maintaining good strong bleed on the pedal due to the dual control insert into the master taking up space and reducing total master cylinder fluid capacity. In all cases I’ve gone to just a hand brake with zero bled issues and much stronger brake. The SLR is equal to the pedal in terms of braking power and way more precise with just one finger. In addition where it mounts is not awkward and more natural and more protected in crashes. But yeah, brembo only. I’m running it on my 450 right now.., IMG_9166.jpg

    My 2020 690 has a Seat Concepts saddle and seat pan, and Rade fuel tank and it fits almost perfectly. The only rise in the saddle as far as I can see, is small rise several inches in front of where my body sits on the saddle. In other words, very near the front of the saddle where my ass never goes.

    I have the same setup rade + seat concepts = same gap showing. No issues with the tank supporting my butt, 10k km's strong.

    I am trying to relocate the reserve light to the tower on my 2020 690. I have a harness from Aurora which plugs into the OEM socket near the rear tank. Can someone take a photograph of where this socket is? It is a small 2 pin connector. I have even removed the battery but I still can't find it! I really appreciate any help you can provide.

    Asking for a friend with '21 model. If the fuel light comes on and the meter starts counting km/miles from the light. How is possible to toggle between this reserve counter vs your normal trip meter? Thank you!

    The same way you would toggle from the main ODO to the Trip1 or Trip2 ODO, just tap one of the buttons,... left one?

    That's cool. Wish my 2020 had that function.

    You can't toggle it. At least the 701 works like that. If you push a button, counters closes. The fuel light continues to be lit up. You can try to get the counter back, if you turn off the engine and restart, but it doesn't work every time.

    Uhmmnnnn . . . got me stumped.

    I guess I must have missed some recent news of something somewhere. And just as I was thinking that I had read everything on the entire interweb.

    I currently have the AXP Extreme skid plate. I am looking for more storage on bike to lower center of gravity and free up luggage space. However, I noticed the R/G Skid Plate doesn't cover the rear shock area; unlike the AXP. Any thoughts? My AXP covers both the rear brake cylinder and bottom of shock / link.

    Hei. Thanks. So that explained why he is confused. On my 2019 has no counter at all when light comes up =) If you restart, does the fuel counter, when coming back, continue's or starts from 0?

    Why not just add a storage box to the front of the AXP skidplate?

    It never starts from zero. I have no clue how it works. Usually it shows something between 30 to 70 km when it comes up. I don't wonder the confusion.
