Question Rotty Fuel Dongle vs kevs fuelmod vs Booster Plug vs Kev's 02mod

Hey all, recently purchased a 2017 Duke 690 and getting used to it. I definitely noticed the choppiness at lower RPMs and it seems there are multiple solutions to this issue. Of the 3 listed, it seems the Rottweiler fueling dongle is the least expensive and easiest to install. I did read about some of the different technology that is used to accomplish the same end goal, but didn't see any direct comparison between the 3. My bike is bone stock and will most likely remain that way for a while as I am a new rider. So, are there any strong cons against the Rotty fueling dongle or should this help out with the Duke's lower RPM issues? What additional pros are seen from the more expensive options? Thanks all in advance!!

I had the same issues with my 2017 Duke 690. I installed Kev's O2 mod and have been VERY happy with the result. Fuel economy is a bit lower, but the choppiness below 4500 rpms (when the computer is in closed loop mode) is pretty much gone. I can now cruise the neighorhood at 30 mph with a smooth engine :-)

Awesome, thanks. What all is involved with the install? Was your bike stock besides that?

I have a 2017 Duke 690 as well.
After 7,000 miles my bike runs great. I decided to try the Rottweiler dongle.
The bike runs even better it pulls better through and out of 2nd gear,3rd gear turns.

I definitely give it a thumbs up!

Another happy Kevs O2 user. You have to take the right hand side panel off near the radiator. Tape/tie wrap the unit above the fuse box. Unplug the O2 sensor lead and insert Kevs O2 in-between. Assemble bike. Do the throttle adaption 15 minute run.

Then enjoy the lower revs and smoothness of the bike

Cool Another Kevs ...

Installed Kevs 02 controller and went up 2 teeth on rear and love the 18 690 Duke even more, the controller helped with the lower rpms and I have been experimenting with the gearing.

For anyone with Kev's mod, is it OK on an otherwise stock bike or do I need to de-cat? Saw some conflicting info in the other thread.
