Rode the trade in bike to the shop today. +4 celsius, cold asf.
I hovered around the rally for a while and found a few things that need attention.
The hand quards
The hand quards are purely cosmetic and need to be replaced with real ones asap. I snapped a clutch lever from the 690E pretty fast because the OEM guards give no protection for the levers in case of a spill.
That thing is huge and needs to go. Not on the top of the list but still.
Already ordered the Burnsmoto plug, but mounting and source for the power needs to figured out. So far it’s looking like the plug needs to be ran staright to the battery which is not optimal.
Battery tender plug
For ease of winter charging and peace of mind this thing is a must too.
