Email me if I can help in any way.

Won´t spend any more money on this engine, will see how it holds up with some sealant. If any more problems occur I will see if the damage is worse before doing any more repairs and should the day come that it wont work ill look at a replacement engine or if the money is there a whole newer bike.

If a new bike maybe do as suggested earlier strip the old down to this and add a saddle and pedals!

On another note, the motor has nearly 70,000 miles on it and she's having an oil pressure issue allowing quite the chatter from the cam chains at low revs. This started right after an oil change down on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Going to change the oil again and see if it quits, 10w30 may be too light, even in cooler temps.

Brought this home today...
First time on anything else than a gsxr I have to admit it feels quite good... I think I am gonna have some great fun with this one.

Hopefully I will have some dirty pictures after the weekend.

Let the farkling begin! Get a sidestand relocator first. Get those bars raised up with some brand of riser and it'll feel even better.

Forgot to include "Congrats, AlxT!!" in my last post.

And I'm quite curious.....
If you've only ever ridden GSXR's, I'm curious as to how you decided your next bike was going to be a Katoom 990.

I have to admit that even though I need to relearn most of my driving habits it does feel better since I recently moved to an island with lost of bumps, holes on the road, slippery roads etc

Well as I mentioned above I found myself on an island with no good pavement around or a track, but lots and lots of dirt and mountains etc. Exactly what a 990 likes :)


Thanks a lot guys, I only have it a day and it grows in me fast... :sly:

From this past summer. Right now it's raining sideways at the house so I'm left with looking at pictures of past rides. C'mon spring...
