What are the symptoms of:

1. Worn TPS
2. Throttle bodies out of sync?

I am guessing:
1. improper fuelling, jerkiness due to improper feedback signal?
2. fluctuating/bobbing idle/tachometer?

Factory KTM 950/990 F-Pro Shift Spring Upgrade

Anyone done this upgrade?

http://www.ktmtwins.com/factory-ktm-950-990-f-pro-shift-spring-upgrade

Is a $40 spring and all the work required to replace worth it?

Cleaning Exhaust Pipes?

What are the 990 exhaust and exhaust headers made of (stainless steel?), and what are some effective methods of cleaning them? I'm about to do a good scrubbing for winter storage.
