Is that a 950sm?

Mounts, you mean foot pegs?

I am going all black and will be pulling the upper Orange frame sliders as well as front and rear Orange axle sliders in the near future for resale.

I meant the method of attatching those upper frame sliders by mount. I have looked but can't find 950sm upper frame sliders anywhere. I would also prefer black sliders. Thanks.

Valve adjustment, never done one on my ktm yet either.

Is it pretty tough to do for you guys that have done them? Im going to be doing a ton of work on my bike next month ish, and I should probably check the valve adjustment while I have everything torn down.

Looks alot more complicated then the ones on my xt600 haha.

Follow the procedure in the "HOW". It isn't really difficult, just a bit time consuming. It's easier on the SM/SMR than an Adventure.

There is an EXCEL shim calculator in there (or PM me with your email and I'll send it to you) that makes determining the correct shim a piece of cake.

any suggestions on other addives?

will turning the air fuel mixture screw in or out help with the constant backfiring under constant throttle.
Hey Ridemore, The problem with backfiring is due the bike sitting up so long. The adjustments were right before it sat up and should be right now.

It does not take long for sitting gas to gum up the jets. I have usually been able to just run the bike with Sea Foam or something similar and get it eventually cleaned out (except for a VFR which sat for 2 years.)

You may have to take the carbs off and clean the jets, nothing major. (I thought I had really screwed mine up when that happened but it cleaned out after several minutes)

Good luck.

Keith

From what I've read so far, the new 1190 Adventure is closer to an SM than an Adventure and that's what I am shooting for.

Now the new 1290 Super Duke should be a whole other ball game!

In regards to the 1190, though some consider it blasphemy I'm all about a more street oriented Adventure. There's still the R model for the diehards. A SD, RC8, SM, SMT, ADV, and ADV-R would be one hell of a line up.
I've considered an SMT, but the ADV 1190 is pulling at me ol heart strings.
