Title: Picked her yesterday
Post by: rastawheel on April 23, 2016, 09:56:04 am
Here in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. Just got my first 690 Enduro R. Had a nice 30 mile ride home from the dealer in the pouring rain, luckily my aerostitch did the trick and keep me nice and dry. 2016 bone stock, I definitely can tell she is all corked up. A 690 should have alot more pull than she does. I guess I need to start with removing smog, air filter and exhaust. Glad to join the club.

congrats!

 i thought the exact same thing when i first rode mine... change the setting under the seat to #2.  the wings exhaust helps also, but the #2 setting makes the biggest difference

Congrats and welcome to the club!

I agree, the bike felt corked up to me as well. Went for the smog removal, full exhaust (I went FMF), and put in a LiPo battery to start. The options are endless, plan your upgrade path as best you can, and enjoy riding/building your 690!

Did the switch and that helped a lot. Runs much better. Looking at a foam filter next.

I just ordered the Uni Filter from Australia (NOT the same as the Uni Filter USA) -

Yes, switched to 2 and running much better. Had to do the 15 min idle adjust. Next will be foam filter.
