@Divaha
Thanks for the Tip. Please do go in to detail. Must say, its not rost, its "burned in" dirt.


@Balsta
Yes, its all spray painted. First sanded down. then primer and then the paint. So it shouldn't come off.

Befor you ask. She does get used in the dirt:

This is a famous enduro trick; the soap grease will burn into the rust and dirt due to the heat and will fall off. You will be left with a clean pipe, clean the last stuff with brake cleaner and heat it up again. When you put the bike away than spray some cable spray on it.

Light Weight Compact Wheel Spanner

As you know the tool kit spanner is pants
I made this for a mate with a 690 but it also fits the 950se or any other KTM
with a 27mm 32mm nut size
Being aluminium it won't damage your nuts !!
Weight is less than 70 grams
Due to this very low weight shipping is not expensive
I can post to most places for 5...UK is 1.50
Cost is 17.50 per spanner

Here is a link to UK KTM forum

http://www.ktmforum.co.uk/bikes-bits...l-spanner.html

Here are a few pics







Heres what to final ones look like



PM me if interested

That looks neat. It would mean that I don't have to take the 1/2" drive ratchet and sockets anymore on a trip. So a major space and weight saving.
However it looks short, like you have to put your whole weight at the end to reach a torque of more or less 90Nm. Any info on that?
