|The zip tie mod on 690 Enduro R|
The zip tie mod means replacing the front side panel mounting screw with a zip tie. This prevents the side panel / side panel mounting screw from damaging the radiator if the side panel receives a hard impact.
Doing this mod would have probably saved me from a lot of grief during the latest crash. I would have probably lost the temp sensor anyway, but I would have most likely avoided the radiator leak. Reusable zip ties would be even better, but I didn't have small enough ones at hand.
