    I've never owned a FI motorcycle. I have had the fuel pumps go bad in a couple cars and a pickup truck. Thankfully, there were signs the pumps were about to abandon me so I got them fixed before I was stranded on some dark urban street late at night.
    It takes about 5 minutes to change out a fuel pump on these if you have never done one before. Its not been a problem since the first batch. I have owned a dozen carbed bikes. I like my bikes to start instantly and ride right away regardless of weather, temperature, elevation etc. Nothing with a carburetor is 100% dependable and reliable all the time. Like I said, over 150k on FI bikes and not even a hiccup.

I agree on the gas cap and carry the little filter with me. I have the CJ cap but haven't mounted it yet. Just last ride that damn OEM cap let dirt drop in there.

    Thanks for the Info!

    As I said the 701 has always come with the later duke motor, completely different valve train and extra balancers. They never put it into the 690 until recently.

    My understanding is the 19 690 Enduro is now the same engine as the 701... I am sure I will not be for wanting much with my new one.. and when I get to the point where I might notice the diffence, I will likely be ready for the next bike.
