What Broke? / Re: This was strange!

There is a pin that operates thruogh the clutch lever bracket which operates a kill switch, si you can start the bike in gear when you stall. Might have something to do with your problem.

Finally sorted the problem which might interest any of you who use the clutch.
 There is a small plastic pin which moves through the clutch lever bracket and pushes on a contact switch when you squeeze the clutch lever. This either makes or breaks a circuit allowing you to start the bike in gear while the lever is held in.
 I found that the plastic pin had actually worn down to a point where it wasn't long enough to make contact with the switch, which was working fine when I tested it in isolation.
I have replaced the pin with a 3mm diameter piece of nail, galvanised of course, and all well again.

I initially thought it would be the switch I would need to replace which is A$150! Ouch!

Anyone had a problem with starting a stalled bike. Used to be able to do it in gear with the clutch pulled in, now it has to be in neutral to fire up??!!
Anybody had a similar problem?

Hi, found the problem, it was the mapping. The bike was set on 2, what a difference when I set it to 1, in a word rideability.
What setting do you use?

I have not looked at the mapping, I read it was switchable on later models not sure if it is on the 2013.
Did you have to change anything when you put the Wings pipe on?

The higher gearing is just for more tarmac riding and I am quite happy with the 16T. I think the problem must be injector related, it just those early throttle opennings, very snatchy, I'll have to find someone with a 690 to compare.thanks for your comments.

Hi all,
Just bought a 2013 690R with 6000k's on it. I have not ridden one before  and it runs very lumpy (that chugga chugga effect is the only way I can describe it) at low sppeeds, hates pulling a higher gear just off the low throttle openning. Runs fine when the revs are up but cannot believe this is how it should be.
I have put a 16 tooth on the front to make the gearing a bit taller which has helped smooth things out a little but you always have to be in the right gear or its not happy.
Sound familiar to anyone?
Any help appreciated.
