THANK YOU , do you like your screen? is it easy to install ? What about protection? I wonder to put one or install a wind screen on the handlbars . In fact, it s for riding with my wife . It s for the comfort.

Here in the US, aftermarket carbon fiber is cheaper than some of the KTM plastic (front mask and fenders excluded). I have replaced most of my stock plastic parts with carbon parts from these guys:

Frank at HF is excellent to deal with.

Good luck! and welcome,

Yes, I like the screen. I've had it on the bike for over 40K miles. No complaints. It keeps the windblast off my body, but doesn't cause wind buffeting on my helmet (probably adds some wind noise). It installs using adhesive double-stick "dots". They are very strong and easy to install. I've done several track days with the windscreen and it stays put. It mounts to the headlight mask, not the bars.

Slowly doing my water pump rebuild this week. Everything is fighting me because the parts have been on there for so long. Gasket stuck to cases. Seal stuck in place (pushing it out via the shaft didn't work). The "special" washer behind the impeller was stuck to the shaft. The old impeller broke while removing the bolt. Good thing the rebuild kit includes all new parts...

A few water pump rebuild action shots:

Bad juju: that tan milky goo inside the clutch cover is a bad sign...





Old shaft (w/ 45K miles on it) vs new shaft:

Good to see you're well on the way to getting the pump seal replaced Garry. Sorry to hear it's putting up a bit of a fight, mine did as well. Guess you're happy you didn't try to do the job prior to you last long ride after all.

Hi Garry,

Was your bike making any more noise than the usual LC8 ruckus before you took it apart?

Nope. The bike sounded and ran perfectly normal. I noticed the oil filter wasn't perfectly pleated on the last two oil changes, so I figured it was time. And the fact that I have 45K miles on the original shaft/seal and the replacement parts have been sitting on the shelf for two years.

RE: Water Pump Rebuild

I got the old bearings out and the new bearings installed. So what do I use to lube the seal and shaft for reassembly? The HOW says "silicon grease". Advance Auto doesn't have it, but I think (in retrospect) they have something called P-80 seal lube. I have water proof high temp wheel bearing grease, and a tube of lithium grease. Is either of those appropriate or do I have to go shopping?

I used Dielectric grease per Pyndon's guide here:

http://www.ktm950.info/how/Orange%20...ater_pump.html

http://www.acehardware.com/product/i...ductId=3506555

Be VERY careful to press the seal in evenly, be sure not to drive it in at an angle.

Good luck!

So that dielectric "Tune Up" grease is "silicone grease" per the Pyndon how to? I couldn't find anything called "silicone grease", but I did see a tube of the Tune Up grease on the rack.
