I rode Nathan's CR500 up the Pines one day and smashed my face into the cross bar on the handlebars are couple of times. I also rode Robs' CR500e and that was much better behaved and licenced as well!!!! In the old days I had an IT 250, 465 and the a 490 and these were great fun bikes and pretty capable. Now a 7 hp DRZ works just fine for me and still gets me in to trouble occasionally.

Biggles I couldn't pick it until I saw the can sitting on top of the stump. You are a sadist if you did that whole track in summer.

I thought it was a great, easy no stress exploration ride to be run at a bit more pace at some time in the future. As for the camera, it is really crystal clear in the original format but would have been too many gigabytes to upload. Sorry I missed the off and the hill, but I will try to remember to turn it on just before I crash next time. Looking forward to the next ride.

Funny watching us go round in circles, but I think your camera needs glasses.

Hey Darin, time for Pounce to buy a 690 I reckon. That must be the secondary problem!

Haha TigeR

Pounce

The needle is well worn and has obviously been jumping around a bit. This would certainly affect the smoothness of the running, especially mid range, as the needle only comes into effect from 1/4 to 3/4 throttle but it wouldn't make the engine stop. If your problem is that it did completely stop, it would be my guess that you have a secondary problem.

Biggles - there was a problem posting YouTube videos.
It's fixed now - and I've also updated the instructions (FAQ #18) so give it another crack.

Sorry Pounce, I know you are disappointed but I can't work it out the instructions are too cryptic for me?

Contacted the guy on PAR who wrote-off the 690 that I bought
Met up with him on Sunday and found out
He has fitted the side stand isolation unit
Fitted heavy duty tank brackets, apparently they can break
Spent $1500 on the suspension (not that I care about that)
Plus I bought a whole bunch of accessories at a great price from him
Seat, silencer, aluminium bash plate, carrier, wide pegs, Ali rad guard and others.
Waiting for the new triple clamp to arrive from the states, so that I can finish the rego.
Happy days.

Shame he is still in a bad way 8 weeks after arguing with a tree, had surgery on Friday and still very sore.
