Everyone might want to check the freewheel assm. bolts on their 950. I installed the starter torque limiter and didn't check the freewheel bolts.

Absolutely......

On the street that was someone telling you way too fast....

If it was in the dirt I'm sure you would have been fine. KTMs are built for the DIRT.





Just kidding of course. Very sad to see this happen. I hope we can get you sorted and back on that great looking bike soon. You know were to find me if you need anything.

Upon Further Inspection

To all 950 owners. Drop what you are doing and check your freewheel assm. bolts.This is getting ugly.

Wasn't there a Technical Service Bulletin about securing these bolts specifically using Loctite 648?

CJ, thank you very much for calling Scott. You don't find support like that from many vendors, you rock Sir!

I just got off the phone with him and told him to go ahead and drain the tank and check the screen above the left bottom hose connection.

I'm concerened how we're going to flush the engine, there's a lot of copper bits in it.

Oil Tank Screen

How would you know this wasn't done if you aren't the original owner and the previous owners did their own wrenching, like me? In my case 62,000 miles (half of those mine) and it's strong and quiet...should I disturb those bolts and do this anyway?

My thoughts are if it hasn't come apart by now it's not gonna, and perhaps disturbing those bolts is worse than leaving them alone.

Your thoughts?

Bolts

I have another 950 Adventure,it will be checked before I ride it again. The PO said the valves were done at a dealer at 10K. Who knows? All I know is that my 950 is a copper grinding sonofabitch. Will keep everyone posted on the outcome, I have some drinking to do!!!
