No 16t available for 95 and older bikes.

I forgot that they changed the front sprocket design somewhere in the 90's, the old design mounts thru two bolt holes in the sprocket--it works on the newer bikes, but not vice versa. A 40T rear sprocket would have the same effect on gearing, but they're mighty spendy; Vortex is the only supplier I know of that makes em, and they're ~$70. JT makes a 42T rear that's pretty reasonable, but -1 tooth on the rear wouldn't make a lotta difference.

Well, I'm getting pretty good at taking the water pump off of an LT1. About 20 minutes.

Got the opti off in another 10 minutes.

I tried to follow the KLR/buzztail, cheap it out by cleaning the fukken thing to see if it works and...

the opti doesn't work.

May the group of fuckheads that developed that POS get an STD and have this happen to them...

Grind down about 4" bead opposite the valve stem. Works like a charm. This is a tip from the wheel wizard Woody in one of the old OC threads.

Thursday: Took a "one-hour" break from "work" to spoon on my new Scorpion. Six hours later I'm still at it, but I've got it, goddmanit, ain't nothing gonna stop me now. Except two little spots on the tire where the bead refuses to seat no matter what I do. So I unseat the bead again, lube it up like Ron Jeremy, dial the compressor up to full warp speed and go for broke.

60 psi … it scoffs at 60 psi
80 psi … maybe a little nudge?
90 psi … ok, some movement now
100 psi … still hasn't seated. It bounces nice though
110 psi … Have you ever felt a motorcycle tire inflated to 110 psi? It's like granite. Basically a bomb at this point
120 psi … and BANG! Clearly someone just snuck up behind me and fired a shotgun right next to my ear. That's the sound of a KTM rear wheel seating the bead at 120 psi. Victory! I love the smell of baby powder in the morning.

Next thing I hear when my ears stop ringing is the air hissing out of tire. The tube has expired. It is a former tube. It is no longer among the living. It was a brand new heavy duty unit. Apparently it was not designed to handle 120 psi. Piece of shit.

Which means I now have to break the bead all over again to replace the tube …

Fuck you, KTM.

Did that two years ago. Tires still have a death grip on the rim. The upside is you could drive across country with a flat.

Are you sure? I think Kawi p/n 13144-1158 will work, as will Sunstar p/n 33316. You might need a shim, their thicknesses appear difference.
