So his bike's Clutch plate and the Slave cylinder went. What would go first in this instance?
I must say this must be some new record. 1300km later?

With the right type of abuse you can cook a clutch in 20 mins

The 690/701 is particularly clutch-sensitive, and around here uite a few guys have destroyed plates on these bikes.

For camera-work in cycling/running events we lower the gearing to accommodate low-speed work.

I'm quite keen to actually drop a tooth in the front myself. Way more useful than being able to do 199kph.

I dropped a tooth on the front, it feels like a different bike  :thumleft: easier to manage in tight trails etc and still can do 120 comfortably if needed

On the 690, what rpm increase does the dropped tooth front sprocket have at 120kph?
