950 gasket kit- I got one- here's what's in it

I've been cleaning out my carbs, as referenced in another thread, and started looking at the KTM 950 Gasket Set Keihin 03. What is in there? I searched these hallowed halls and found a lot of like-minded curiosity, but no answers.

KTM Gasket kit- part no. 60031099000, retail price- $175.00. My curiosity has been taunting me for years. What could be so precious to warrant a $175 ransom?

Well, I'm still wondering.


Here it is.




KTM lists the air cut valves at $75- I assume that's a pair. Why they included the Jet needle holder, complete- $46.39 (again- I hope to gawd that's for a pair) is a bit puzzling. I never viewed it as a wearable part. Is it?

Obviously, the rest is O-rings. All and all, I'm still not sure why this is a) even a "kit" and b) worth $175 bucks.

What do you think?

Does anyone see the Jet Needle Holder as a wearable part? I sure don't.

Then half the guys on ADV would be following me around.

Man, we're having an early spring this year- we've been riding every weekend since the end of January. Got a storm rolling in tonight, but next week will be perfect. You been to Moab?

What is the thickness of those six same size o-rings, I think they are for the fuel line connectors? Mine are leaking...

1.5 mm; 8.00 outside diameter; 5 mm inside diameter. I make no guarantees of precision. The measurements are pretty close if not correct.

They look too small for the fuel line connector. I don't think you'd get a good seal. They're intended to be the O-rings for the brass carb vents and brass fuel inlets. I couldn't loosen up the screw on the carb connector plate and didn't feel like making the effort, either.

There's an inmate selling metal fuel line connectors- He's a vendor with a store. I wish I could remember his name- he's a good guy with a good shop and good prices. Someone will chin=me in, I hope. I broke one of the plastic ones last year and it got me to thinking- that could have been disastrous if in Baja. The metal connectors are nice.

I'm eager to see if there's any change from the new air cut valve. The old one was just a little stiffer then the new one- 7.5 years - to be expected. TPS is dialed in nicely. I'm still waiting on my $5.00 pair of trumpet supports. I also am trying to do something with the crank case vent. I think the hose was putting all the pressure on the filter plate/floor and causing leaks.

I meant those brass inlets, thanks. I have the part with me and I will ask the local suplier if they have correct size.
