Good for you, each time I look at that rack I wish I had it instead of just a Nomadic Rack  :P

Ok then, I've been doing it correctly then. Yeah, agreed, the 690 is fairly easy-level maintenance so far.  :P

So I haven't been putting slack in the timing chain prior to doing valve checks. Does that mean I'm getting a bad reading? I just have the stock chain adjuster, but it'll be replaced soon enough.

I'm an Engine Ice customer. Only downside: it stinks like all hell when it boils over  :P

It's fine with the cube on the rack. Nothing melts. The mounting bracket is a PIA to unbolt and remount, so I just leave my cube on there full time now. I just don't load it down with fuel if I'm riding locally.

If I were posed with the same options, I'd go with Perun's rack. I really like the extra spots for straps and whatnot. I got the Nomadic rack and its working just fine, but I woulda gone with Perun's if I'd had the chance.  :P

So I've been rocking the perun kit/ nomadic rack for over a year now. I roll with 30 lbs on it easily. If it's gonna break, so be it. Then I'll go to a frontside gas tank again. Yeah, having that damn fuel tank where it is seems to be a huge ergonomic downside, but it's part of what makes a 690. We just keep adding all sorts of **** to it and expect it to do it's damn job. Well, there's a breaking point for everything. Just get the upgraded bolt kit.  :P

690 Discussion / Re: Burning oil?
« on: December 29, 2015, 04:36:31 pm »
Crazy. I would be spooked to be losing that much oil. I wouldn't ever go on any of my longer journeys if I knew I was burning oil like that. I suppose you could just carry a quart with u if u knew your rate of loss reliably.... But still. It's the premise. I don't think I've ever lost oil like that before except once when the valve guides on my 530 was leaking. U could tell though cuz of the splooge from the pipe. Anyways, to each their own when it comes to remedies for their bike. I just feel fortunate enough to have this website and y'all to fall back on for advice. Good luck bro.

         Where'd you get the bulb from? And is it worth the $$$?

Anyone got a suggestion on whom to go through for fork+shock servicing? I'm looking into both options of spending a couple hundred on tools to do it myself, or just send it out every so often. Feedback wanted plz.  :P

What Broke? / Re: Rear brake pedal pivot bolt bad - 500 miles!

The FA209/2 pads are solid. Good braking power no matter the condition. Worth the $35 I paid for them. Next time I spot a good deal for them or the rear 208's I'll snag them off of eBay.  :P
