I fell in love with Elefants the moment I laid eyes upon them.

But one quick question I can't seem to find the answer to. How is the gas mileage on these '94 E900's? And how many total were brought to the US?

Mileage varies by rider. One of my KTMs belonged to a friend. He got 60 MPG, I only got 50.

With that out of the way, my 900 'fant doesn't get anything very different than any of my other bikes--mid 40s on average.

No firm import numbers that I know of but the rumor is 100 bikes per year (94, 95).

Elefant 900 rear Suspension linkage

Hi All,

Any of you chaps greased up or replaced the bearings on the rear suspension linkage?

Where the bottom link pivots on the frame, the bearing sits on a hollow shaft that is srcewed into the frame, anyone got any tips on getting this undone? I've made a tool but it still won't budge.

cheers

Hi Andy,

'I've made a tool but it still won't budge.'
What tool did you make up - is it the different sized diameter 'drift' in the bottom pic, resting on the block of wood?

If lots of wd40 soaking, heat and cold, big hammers dont shift it in the past I've managed to make up a 'puller' for this kind of thing ie use some threaded bar/stud bar (M8 or M10?) pass it through the hole and tighten a pair of nuts together to lock them at one end, then place a suitable tube(deep reach spark plug spanner?) & washers at one end to allow the spacer to come out, at the other end place a washer just big enough to 'cover' the spacer diameter and then put on a nut, do up tight, then when you turn the single nut it should force only the spacer through and into the space created by the tube/spark plug spanner .... does that make sense?

Hi Glen,

thanks for your reply, the tool you refer to in the picture is the end of an angle wrench not the tool I made.

This bush/hollow shaft actually screws into 1 side of the frame. probably went in nice and easy 14 years ago at the factory. there are two slots to enable undoing.

any ideas

cheers

Hi Christian, I think you 'd be better off with a drag link socket . you want one 20mm wide. even if it fits you've still got to get the bastard to turn.....

cheers

Ah I see ... strange arrangement. Well in that case have you tried an air gun/compressor and your 'tool' - its amazing how much easier using airguns are for removing/undoing nuts, bolts, etc or are the two 'slots' too shallow to allow your 'tool' to enagage with? ie does it just spin without engageing in the slots.

If thats no good, you know whats next ? big hammer and a cold chisel !

Its not pretty but I've not have them let me down yet

Credit for this goes to flash_412 from the Yahoo Gran Canyon group. The picture of the tool is for the GC which I believe is the same as the E.

that's outstanding, so the questions
1- is this a "traveling tool"
2- if not, is it a Cagiva tool or a home made one?
3- if home made, anybody interrested in getting together to have one build and be a traveling tool in the ADVRider Tool pool ? If that the solution, I could drop off my bike at a machinist I know so he can make one.

thanks
Christian
