Mefo / Dunlop

I have tried every possible combination of tires. TKS are pure crap. No good in dirt and no god on highway and were finished at 3000 kms.
The best combo I have found is a Dunlop 908 on the front...

KTM bag

The new Baja comes with a really nice waterproof bag. It could probably be ordered by a dealer. Maybe someone will part with one?

Wobble.

I have had both the 950 and a 990. This is a tire issue. These bike will wobble as soon as the tire wears a bit. It is typical. The only fix is a steering damper unless you plan on tire changes...

Tires

If you are mostly on the highway the shinko 705 is a good tire. If you are more off road the Mefo or Henius (spelling?) are a good choice. The Mefo and Shinko both wear well. The shinko is the...

Side stand

The side stand issue is an easy fix. I simply cut about 1 1/2 inches out of the lower portion and welded a threaded rod on the bottom portion and a nut on the upper portion. Then threaded a locking...

Wings

Wings all the way! I have the NOS with carbon fiber ends. Hy sound great but are not so load that they wear on you on a long trip. Even my Harley Ferguson friends comment on how good they sound.

Clutch failure

I owned an 950 and now a 990. I put thousands of miles on my 950 and the only major failure I ever had was the clutch slave cylinder. I have never tried an aftermarket unit. They are supposed to be...

Gearing

The stock gearing on the 990 adv is 17/42. Most off readers switch to a 16/42 combo. This seems to work well and is stock on the limited edition 2013 baja model.However......swapping the primary over...

Foot pegs

Thanks but I don't want to mess up the bars and have to paint or powder coat them. However......this does make for a sturdy set up.

990 highway foot pegs

Wat is the best option for highway foot pegs. On my 950 I welded a small bracket to the crash bars but on m new Baja I am reluctant to muck up the pretty orange bars so a bolt on would be best.

990 mods

I have the same bike and am well on my way with mods as well. Here is my two cents worth.

Steering damper: fastway made by Pro Moto Billet. Plus it gives you a small rise of just over an inch.

Side stand too long?

I have 2013 990 baja and run the stock wheels off road and a 19/17 combo on the highway. I am contemplating cutting an inch off the side stand because it is too long when running the 19/17 combo. It...

Mine was delivered without the sprocket but the dealer got the correct one for me. One of my aux lights has failed already....very disappointing.

This works and is no big deal to change. It is a little trick to open up the pin connector to remove....but once that is done you can change wheel size just as described.

The stock exhaust can be modified easily by cutting and removing the catalitic baffle.....then reweld. This opens the beast up and with proper jetting will run like a top!
