Tilt switch, I think?

It cuts the engine when the bike falls over a certain amount of degrees, as a F.I. engine would rev even upside down, unlike a carb model.

Cool never done the trip but my buddies have and said the 690 should be fine. Well i think it comes close to or even better than my 300.

Eliminate missed shifts and false neutrals. Quicker shifts.
Installation: About 1-2 hours - no case splitting required. The clutch basket doesn't even have to be removed
Something to think about...
When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it. All else is madness.
