Would be easy to place a filter on the cross over from the right tank but that would only solve half the problem. I may just use a sock filter at the filler - even though its a PITA. On the 690 side, they used a sock filter for the fuel pump. I'm not sure if that would be an option here.

new skins on new wheels

No pics. Put a pair of MT21s on my second wheels set (21x1.85 and 18x2.5 - basically a SE950R wheelset).

A big thanks to the Orange Crush Hall of Wisdom and specifically Neduro's "How to change tires" page.

Even if I am a long way from accomplishing this task without breaking a sweat, I'm down to 45 minutes front an just over an hour for a rear. Good thing I have no ambition to ever be a competetive enduro rider...

Don't worry about t. What this means is when you get a flat in The Great Beyond somewhere, you'll know what to do.

This is what I did to my KTM today (yesterday):

You left it in the middle of the road while you went and got your tire fixed?

Looks seamless! How did you go about mounting the switch?

I have the same setup on my Transalp and haven't found a solid solution. I'd love to see some more photos!

Thanks!

Hah!

All the tire, tools, etc in in the soft, soft grass just off to the right side there. Low traffic road, needed the center hump to get the rear wheel off the ground. The taller suspension needs a taller centerstand which I've not yet completed.

Battery Games

Got tired of having to drop the skid plate on my 990 to plug in the Shorai battery charger dongle so I called the guys at Anti Gravity to see what would fit my bike. They recommeded the 16 cell small case but it would have to lay flat to fit. Nope, not so much, the terminals hit the BDCW skid plate.


Thought about modifying the battery box to mount it upright but this would be a hack not an improvement.


Decided to make the Shorai pigtail part of the battery so I could leave it plugged in all the time. Used that Sugru air setting silicone putty to make a plug body.


Routed the pigtail through an existing hole in the side of the battery box...


...and tied it to the jumper cable connector so it is accessible in the same place.





Now I can plug the Shorai charger in when ever I want. Haven't figured out a connector condom yet but I recall seeing something that would work. Just don't remember where or what it was. Anybody got any good ideas here?


Then added a voltmeter up on the dash next to the GPS so I know what is going on with the charging system.
Had the VRR fail in Switzerland last year and didn't know it until the battery went dead on the Motorway. The bike gods were with me as it failed a couple of miles from a Harley dealer who found a KTM dealer for me. The KTM dealer took one off of a Super Duke on the showroom floor for me. That's great service from both dealers

Went to do the 15 min idle and saw the headers glowing red!!! never done that before guess shes a bit lean on the stock setting. REmapped with akro ti slip on map seams alot better test ride confirmed the gain in performance.. The ride was short but wow what a difference

I mean really wow this is a must have that stock air box is such a clunky mess and obviously a huge restriction would deffinetly recommend
Hi
I have just had my 06 990 dyno'd with a custom map (CPR and Ackras with short baffles),the Acra map was close but not spot on . The secondarys now are open and a seperate map for front and rear cylinders . + 8ft/lbs midrange and 5hp all over better than the std Ackra map. It is well worth getting it set up ,it's the same gain again then just putting on the CPR and the NOISE

Cleaned and rebuilt forks, cleaned and regreased (mostly the top) the head bearings, retightened them. Tried to get off the fork fluid of the front brake.. This took me a lot of time. I had to take it all apart.. But now they are clean and shiny:) Almost better than new:)

But it's so much fun:)

Still a long way to go (picture is before fork reinstallation) :

HDB Dash Stuff

Thanks. It's mostly Highway Dirt Bikes with a bunch of home brew stuff.



  • One of our TAPP Panel Mount USB sockets on a home brew bracket at the top.
  • 2 Baryl 12VDC panel mount sockets in HDB Powerlet holes. One for tank bag power and the other for heated gloves.
  • Custom circuit board replaces HDB discreet switches and LEDs. I don't have a pic of the actual board but here's the CAD model


Switches run a custom relay board in the glovebox switching power from an Eastern Beaver PC-8 fuse block. The relay board may look like I'm killing ants with a sledgehammer but all those headers and jumpers are fo some selectable control features for future use. I'm thinking of redesigning it to include full size ATO/ATC fuses. I found that there are places where mini-fuses are hard to find, i.e. Russia!




Here's what it looks like installed.


I swapped my locking glovebox for a early-style non-locking type. The locking mechanism took up too much room and made the PC-8 fuses too difficult to remove. No need for a lock. If the bad guys ever got into it they would just be confused. Plus it's covered up with my tank bag.
