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

I want to order from them or directly from Factory pro who wants to share the postage ?

That's not too bad, did you get a shorter brake lever and how long is the new lever?
I bought a set from China that was supposed to be shorter but ended up being the same length.
They only cost about R250 for the set so I'm not to worried.

Not so fancy, but I trim all my leavers with a hacksaw.  You can do it on the bike and round the edges with a file.

It's there to stop the lever spiking you in a crash. You can't race without one.
