MrSandman818:
For your healthy benefit ill accept the "ride more" concept. And thank you for your kind words.....though you said turbo....??? RC8R...turbo???!!?!Maybe


Everyone else. Thankyou. It has been a pleasure and still is showing this progress with build in faults and succes.

For an while ago i asked for lower temp sensor for the fans. The original kicks in at 105 celcius...that is a tad high in this type of bike. Ive searched around and one guy(OC of course) pushed me in the direction of Suzuki sensors.

Suzuki Burgman 400 and the like fits straight on and it kicks in at 94 celcius. Damn perfect.





How it looks on this machine.



Perfect fit.












Any danes need it i can be helpful with mc nglen.

Made an quick edit on the last weekend touring.



The test included an old abandoned sand-road. An absolute test for my lesser skills in sand and the time being away from riding this kind of big bike makes it even more challenging. With that said it was damn fun, i really enjoy the stability that these huge bikes has. Ive totally forgotten how much it feels like skiing. The suspension got worked a tad more on this ride. It really shines and needs me getting more courage to attack.

Enjoy

Here we have a saying: "Dale Tiempo al Tiempo", which in english would be "Give Time to (the)Time" or something like that. With your patience, time and effort that beast will do whatever you want.
It's great you keep enjoying your ride.

...and with that said i will work on improving the sound. Maybe the Zoom H4N could be strappen somewhere. Good sound really improves the "picture".

thanks for the feedback

Those roads look like a WRC course, fast and flowing. Very cool. I need a vacation so I can go ride Denmark.

I especially liked that part when the black sheep was still on the road and as soon as you gassed it, it went running

Rerouted the right tank fuel line and its completely wrapped in fire retardant materiel. This is a bit longer route, though way more safe in the long haul.








Not much seat time. Im done with school the 12th next month and then im straight off to catch up with wife and kid in southeren Sweden. We are off to this house again...




Enjoy whatever you are doing.

Long way from the battlefield. Looks like a slice of Heaven. Enjoy your trip and make sure you post pictures of your ride up.

Well the thought has been there if this should be to much power. And now ive had the oppertunity to ride 1000+ km im convinced that the power is easy controlled with the 17/17 setup. On the other hand the S12 offroad setup is not that practical. Think of 2 stroke, ride gravel or other loose surface when it start to built up power from 4-6ks it really is easy to handle. As soon you go above it spins up whatever you got. Though it feels absolute controllable and the frame/suspension setup really makes a bike i can remember.

Yes it is to much power offroad. Onroad is just perfect.

My SE with a 990 SDR motor from 2009 (the one with larger intakes and 132 hp per KTM's datasheet) is already too powerful for gravel. Wild spinning on gravel with fully open throttle, 6th gear high speed any tyre. Can just imagine how it would become with another fifty horses, all dirt surfaces like ice.

I have accurately calculated with my pantometer that I use about the same as you but sometimes up to 85hp on a gravel road as I am about to crash (say at 100mph or so) have possibly used all of my 100 needies on occasion but consider it a similar sensation to running a fuelly dragster (way to scary)

So I'm guessing youse guys bikes are insane

A guy I ride with who had a 690 was horrified when he being tapped out was constantly having his mirrors filled with a wheel spinning swaying from side to side monster, He has since gone out and traded it on a nice new white 990
