What main jet are you running with the KTM needle, at approximately what elevation?

I am not running a KTM needle. Mine is actually a custom job that is similar but by no means identical. Your main jet can only be determined after some trial and error and in the case of the DR is going to be affected a lot by what kind of airbox opening you have -- probably more then the altitude. My airbox is opened up about two or three times the size of the snorkel hole size and I run a mikuni 142.5 at 4200' and up.

Edit: those with fully opened up airboxs seem to fall somewhere between a 145 and 150 mikuni main (Dynojet #s are different for the same size).

[My question though is: wouldn't the flat side of the e-clip (if positioned along side the shelf) prevent rotation of the needle?]

yes

I'll see your 11-11-11 and raise you 28,000.



Sissy KTM and BMW riders (hiding over by the blue car). That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Another awesome day riding in the Rockies.

So what your saying if your stay up on your maintance of chain and spockets and not riding all loaded up for fine with a top roller.

You need two, with your 3/8" drive not exceeding aprox 80 ft/lbs and a 1/4" drive inch/lbs for the small torque applications...

ft/lbs X 12 = inch/lbs

SK has always been a solid just under $100 brand, but they seem to be out of biz. K-D looks the same however. http://www.thetoolwarehouse.net/c-28...-wrenches.aspx truth is you really need 2 wrenches to do it accurately.
one real low range to 20-25lbs and one 10ft to 80/100ftlbs or more. a wrench is not accurate at the bottom or top and so if it starts at 5lbs and you try to torque to 5lbs it will be off. DR has a few low torque bolts.

if you're on a budget buy this and this

With indexed snail adjusters, just one notch too tight and a couple of big hits offroad and whoops, there goes the upper roller hardware. Not one posting of anyone without the upper roller, suffering chain derailments etc., that I've ever read / heard of...
My 07's upper was removed immediately and the lower roller, replaced with the traditional bearing equipped jobber unit.

Reminds me of the KLR crowd, that argues against upgrading the "doohickey."

Questions on driveshaft and engine sprocket...

I'm replacing my front sprocket and going to a 520, when removing the front sprocket, I noticed a bit of play in the drive shaft.
I put it in gear and shook it forward and reverse and it has some play in it, is this normal and if so, how much?

Next, while installing the front sprocket, I noticed that tightening the sprocket bolts do not putt the retainer tight enough to pinch the gasket/bushing between the two...are there any specs on what that spacer should be?

Finally, pulled the rear carrier out and then separated the sprocket carrier from the hub, the bushings are pretty stiff, feel more like plastic then rubber. When together there is no play, but in my pass experience, there should be some resistance putting the two together to stress the bushings a bit, is it the same case with these bikes?

Thanks
