990 Improvements:

For cold weather, wrapped my clutch lever with shrink wrap:


When I installed the throttle lock, my cut down brake lever was moved too far over. It was a 1 1/2 finger position. I banged some 1/2" aluminum tube into an oval, did a little grinding on the lever, and banged the extension in place with copious amounts of JB weld. The works were then shrink wrapped. I now have an extra long lever that can be used with 2-4 fingers. It should dramatically improve my braking power.



Only remaining work: Foot peg extensions and Oberon clutch slave cylinder.

Yeah, I did my valves and a fluids change too....okay well that took more like another day.

Peanuts, I didn't change that - this is actually the first I've heard of it, and I've gone through the HOW in great depth. My bike's an 04 950 Adv - is it something I should be worried about?

remote mode switch

Hi after installing HID lights my pass switch seamed useless as HID high beam take a bit to warm up so i ran two wires from the trip master plug behind the head light ( found colour code for the wires on this site after a search) and soldered them into the pass switch. i can now scroll through the modes hands never leaving the bars.

Please elaborate.

BTW, the longer front brake lever has make a huge difference on my 990. I found the front brakes somewhat marginal. Better pads would probably help. I should give the rotors a quick sanding as well.

Yes, the balls come out of the bearing and cause damage to the primary gear, clutch and gearbox.

Well documented on smaller KTM forums, but just as bigger threat to the LC8 engine, hence the factory doing the upgraded part.

my K.I.S.S. approach to gear hauling. made a cheap base plate to mount all my camping gear. really happy with the results. cost me $12 and allows enough room for a passenger, plus is a solid mount and prevents stuff from sliding around. the whole bundle comes right off together and the base plate can be removed quickly so you can strip down to fun mode without worrying. can open and close both paniers without removing any gear either. originally did it without the base plate but was worried about the heat. this definitely solves that problem.







these are the things i do when i'm home sick with the flu...
