How long did it take you to get the body work and tank off to do this? I assume you had to drain the tank? Seems strange KTM made this so hard to change, especially as their dirt bikes have air filter access so wel sorted.

The Unifilter filters need any kind of fuel mapping changes, like the DNA filters?

New features...

Suddenly i can make left turn signal by pressing the horn and i get horn when making left turn signal. Also the "back" selector switch is misbehaving. Another frustrating warranty issue to put on the list. My dealer will sure have a handfull at next service....

At least the bike keeps running :)

Hi Canning,

The dealer do that. They call me the same day the unifilter arrives to do the recall service.But I think the bike will need a fuel mapping. Since I left the dealer, the revs are quite high.

The bike should not require remapping if the only change has been the air filter. We have tried to keep the air flow as close to original as possible. In regards to changing the filter yes you do have to remove the tank. You don't have to drain it as the tank has two fuel taps to turn the fuel off. It takes about 40min to change the filter. The best advice is to follow the owners manual for removing the tank so you don't remove any bolts that are not required. You can change the pre-cleaner by just removing the front fairing that houses the turn indicators.

I wouldn't bother, i have as much confidence throwing this into a tight turn fast as i did with a F650gs on the black top and even more off road..

As fast as a F650gs?.........sorry couldn't resist...

If I ride my Multi back to back with my SE...I really miss a real front tire....

So....is it possible?

hehe.. the engine doesn't have that much to do with the speed u can carry into and around a corner.. just exits and straights.. where u engage warp speed

But yes it would muck up the TC.. and a maybe on ABS, as well as your speedo

Are you serious? painting plastic isn't something new.

What have you done with Tancakar?

It's called preperation. Something you need to do when you spraypaint any surface. The prep depends on the surface, plastic for example needs a primer to hold well.
Scotch-brite + plasticprimer and your paint won't chip or crack.

I just used PlastiDip.
Perfect for small areas and non-destructive.
I think it is some kind of latex based or something so it is flexible.
It's fairly heat-resistant as a buddy of mine used it on his exhaust guard with no issues.
All you need is to degrease the surface area properly and spray it on.
4 or 5 coats and you're all set.

I believe there's nothing painted in that pic, if you're referring at the headlight mask I think black is the original color in the standard adventure.
