In case you were not aware, the rubber on the OEM sprocket dampens only noise. It does not have any cush-drive function.

KTM also offers a plain sprocket for a few dollars less. I have not noticed any difference in the noise level.

I am aware of that, a bit of rubber on the outside of the sprocket, the only disadvantage for damped as far as I could tell is that it a little more expensive with the possibility it might actually do something.

second rider in for maintance ......

I am also planning to tear the 990 down . BUT I am having issue with finding a shim kit for the girl . I'm guessing HotCams but not having any luck finding the kit # to order . Any suggestions ??

I have been told the water pump shaft issue was addressed by KTM . Is this true & if so any idea on what year ? Or did they just change the shaft design ?

I ride daily (hate to cage) I do plan to trip the girl & have absolutely NO plan on selling so any maintenance that needs to be done I would do ... 12000 miles on the clock .

Shims

Harley Davidson V-Rod shims fit, and can be bought individually at a HD dealer. See the spreadsheet on the HOW (Halls of Wisdom, see thread at top of Orange Crush). So no need to buy a 'kit'

I don't recall the exact year the tech bulletin was released, but they updated to a hardened shaft and a teflon seal.

Despite this, it is still pretty much an accepted fact that when you do a major service (ie valves coolant and oil, about every 15 000 km) you should do the pump seal at least as well.

So far, so good.

One thing I've done that I find invaluable is get a foam core project board and draw outlines of all the major parts removed. Use a nail or something similar to poke holes where mounting bolts go. It's an easy way to make sure you don't lose fasteners while your bike is in pieces. If you arrange the drawings in order, you'll know what order the parts go back on (remove glove box before tanks, etc). The board is also a handy place to write valve clearance specs and other important data (tire pressure, torques, etc.)

Yep, my original pump shaft lasted me about 60 000 km....but gave up the ghost miles form home and was a PITA to replace on the road.

I could probably push the new viton ones and hardened shafts out even more....but for a few $$$ and really not much more extra work, I reckon its cheap insurance to just do it when you do the coolant. Just my 2c
