    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 :-)

    if its all the same then what is it you're actually asking?

    sounds like you know what you're doing. go hard.

    It's time
    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.

    Thanks
    Hopey

    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

    So 1090 owners if you had your time over would you buy the same bike again?
