Sorry I can only guess at the spring, so I will not bother as I am sure you can make the same guesses.

Replies!..........

Sorry for the delay in replying to questions, been concentrating on getting the bike finished and the reports done.

Gefr - Do I think that holes in the swing arm would help. Yes indeed they would but I tok the oposite approach of sealing the swingarm as I refitted all of the fasteners etc. I hope it to be water resistant now . Thankyou for the email addresses, I will mail them, just not had time yet. I will post responses just as soon as I get them. Thanks.

Hamish - I.o.M 2007.......Bring it on, I'll be there .

C-Dub - Buckaroo Rally, Elko NV. I'd love to but know nothing about it. Send me details please or tell me where I can find them. Thanks

Terlingua - I got all the TSB's after trauling this wonderfull forum! I then thoroughly stripped and inspected the bike to identify what was and wasn't done and what I couldn't identify I simply went to my local dealer and asked them if my VIN required the work. Traul and you will find .

Regards,

Pyn

Aha, this is a genetic thing! Great post, really enjoyed reading it, and I wish I had half your skills. But then again, my dad demolishes half the wall when he tries to hang a painting with... a nail

BTW, did you fill up the coolant with the front wheel up from the floor? Something I read one should do after filling an empty cooling system, and I didn't see you needing that. It's a guideline to prevent air pockets.

Keep on wrenching, and tell us about it, please

You considering getting rid of the sidecar gig and getting a Katoom now?

What were your final carb settings? I am trying to sort mine out now, and I thought I would try your settings. Did you use a jet kit?
Thanks for the great information.

Carb Settings and replies!

KTM Moto.

Carburettor settings vary so much depending on location, altitude, humidity, temperature etc etc. They also vary from bike to bike (very slightly) SO......It is almost impossible to think that you can take somebody elses settings and it will be right. I am firm believer of setting bikes up properly using a Dyno, however, I have done this so many times in my racing years that I know roughly what to feel for and what to do to put it right. It will be close but I guarantee you I will be changing something to get it even better on paper when I put it on the dyno. I also set it a little rich before going to the dyno, just to be on the safe side. Sorry to shatter your hopes of a good setup. Once I have been to the dyno I will post figures and settings along with location, altitude, temperature and humidty etc. Watch this space!

C-Dub.

Thanks for the Info, I actually went searching last night about it and found the stuff. Man, I would love to go but need to find somewhere nearby that has rooms available. Red Lion booked up! Also, it's 1660 miles for me to get there, so if anybody is going from Texas or knows of anybody going from Texas and wants to ride with (or drive with), let me know.

Regards,

Lyndon
