EVO2 tanks, KTM Rally Replica fairings, tower above, = ADVLite.
Road book holder, ICO, GPS and the stock dash will be installed.
Should be the perfect all-rounder save some knarly singletrack.
I know you would do that also, but I'm pretty beat up from my youth.
I want to do some roadbook rides this season. Somethng different.
I have a lightweight bike for that ST stuff.

I'd get those fuel lines out of your spring.

The vertical hose is the vent hose for the rear tank, and won't get caught up in the spring. The horizontal hose is the transfer line between the rear than the the forward rally tanks. Its a tight fit, however hose is secured to the frame and will not come in contact with the spring either. I had ran the hose on the outside if the frame previously, however didn't like the exposure to other things unexpected so I moved it into the frame/shock area.... not much else to do with it.

I’m thinking about the KTM gel seat, as one option for making long hauls a bit more humane ...
Is there someone out there who is using one, and could let me know how much more comfortable they are than the stock bread knife ... ?

Here I am.

It is a tiny little bit more confortable due to the more rounded shape.

So, instead af sitting on a squared wooden beam you will find yourself sitting on rounded wooden pole...

Tuner in S. Arizona

My '08 690 has run like crap for the last year.
I've done all the tuning with TuneECU, tried different maps
etc.

The bike still stalls when off the throttle.

Can anyone recommend a tuner in the Tucson area who can help me
get this bike running right again ?

Max

To clean the injector, can I use injector fluid as used for cars that you add to the petrol, TPS reset is the 10 min udkes reset?

Happy New Year everyone!!!!



If anyone is looking for a set of RR EV0 1 tanks, drop me a PM, Just the tanks.
I figure someone might be looking for a cheaper way to have these tanks on their bike and save a little money at the same time. You can buy the fuel tank adapter fitting on the RR UK site separately, the rest is fuel lines and a main mounting stud(threaded rod).

+1 on the TPS. I don't know how it's set on these bikes but on my carb'ed 950 it ran like crap if the TPS was off.
