yeh knew that part
Got my eye on a rear 2015 690 talon orange hub & excell A60 rim IF it fit ?
I dont know. Having owned a 690, and currently with a 1090R and 1290S the 690 hub from memory looked quite a bit smaller.
I'm sure with enough engineering re spacers etc it could, but why you'd put a hub, spokes and bearings designed for 150kg/70hp on a 230kg/160hp bike is question only you can answer.
Ring Talon and ask them?
Does a 690 fit a 990?
If yes, then yes
Talon hub all same & a same as A60 rim , if was a simple as spacers not issue i can knock them out in 30min on the mill
y is a crooked letter cant straighten it that's why
if its all the same then what is it you're actually asking?
sounds like you know what you're doing. go hard.
Selling my 2015 1190R cheap with all the kit. you name it its got it.
Got a 701 the other day so its going to be my next project.
Just remember you better be tall as she is 30mm higher than standard with the TT suspension replacement.
The gearbox on my 1290 sar is a bit notchy,thought it would loosen up as bike got 16k on it,anyone else find same with theirs? under power doesnt want too change up ,3rd -4th gears as expected.
Johnno what oil are you using ? I recon a fully synthetic makes for better gear changes
I was getting lots of false neutrals on my 701 until I bought a hammerhead shoe size specific gear lever no more missed changes
Have you cleaned the clutch oil jet?
Thanks for replys gents,run 10/60 crosspower in it and change it at 5k.Yes have not cleaned clutch lube jet but will do,was onto it with the other lc8 bike's I had but didn't even think about it with this bike,good info thanks.
So 1090 owners if you had your time over would you buy the same bike again?
Probably not, I really like it but the 790 would suit my riding and where I go (probably where I shouldn't be on an adventure bike :). Its not a big enough difference to sell it to buy a 790 or even the T7 but would have loved for them to be out when I got mine.
For those that have ridden both offroad, did you find that it was so much easier weighting the pegs and balance when offroad?
Orders of magnitude better and easier on a 790.
I went from 9X0 to 1X90 back to 9X0 (so much better) and now 790 and its so much better again.
Different league and bike altogether.
Thats to me anyway.
Absolutely. Bought mine in 2017 and has about 25k on it. Had zero issues with it and it suits my riding style and locations. Very versatile handling single track and rocky hills (within reason) to long transport sections. Heading to the Simpson in August (fingers crossed) to give it a play in the sand.
heading to Simpson myself in august. Ill keep an eye out for you
A few of us are going supported. Crossing Simpson around 7 - 8 August. Just waiting for the communist states to open their borders
Yep we should be there just after you also supported.. hoping the states open up. Commies are messing with my riding! lol
I did Simpson West to East (2) years ago on a standard 690R. Then again last year on a tuned up 690R (East to West) on the GAR - Great Australian Ride. Only saw one guy on a 1190 doing West to East. It appeared to me he was a younger bloke at full speed to promote momentum. The straighter run up the dunes initially would have helped considerably. Couldn't imagine East to West run. Tight left / right turns at the base of many dunes would kill momentum. Best of luck. Hell of a challenge on a heavy bike.
Answer to the other question - No I wouldn't buy a 1090R again. Capable but too heavy. Its all good in the rough until things get untidy. Then 230kg+ takes over. Came off and cracked my ribs. Then I had to pick the thing up which probably caused me more damage. Great for on road and dirt roads though.
Made an observation yesterday on my 1090R while I had the front wheel off. Corrosion on the lower fork legs. Left and right. You cant see it when the wheel/discs/fender obscure things. Further to that, its a difficult area to keep clean too. Don't know if this is common or previously reported but worth your while to check occasionally.
The same happened to the forks on my 2016 690.
More people might find this on closer inspection of their forks.
How many K's, my 690 had only 4K odd.
I suspected it had been from sitting around unwashed and unridden but maybe the chrome is too thin.
