My wife and I are looking for a couple of bikes with longer legs to camp off for several days at a time. We currently have 2012 Huskies, TE 310 and TE511 - We have them dialed in now and wouldn't trade them for anything - but we need two more bikes to get where we want to go. I also have a Big Red Pig - 2005 XR650L that feels really, really huge compared to the KTM - I love the Pig, but it must go. We rode 690 demos at a KTM event several weeks ago and my wife really liked it. She said it felt really light and the chassis felt "good." I too really liked it, but I had a couple of issues; 1) Felt like there was no power until 4K RPM's plus and 2) the front end was loose - tended to wonder. Can #1 above be solved by reflashing the ECU like we did on the Huskies? I'd like more low end power and probably run it richer from idle to redline. Has anyone else felt #2 above, do you think an aftermarket set of tires would change the "loose" feel? Thanks.
