Hey F.D. I hope you're o.k.

Looks like the riser that was mounted to the Rally Riser snapped... or did the bolt shear right out??

... hmm... looking at it some more and have some questions. Can you either post some more pictures or shoot some more pictures over to Kevin?
Thanks,
D

Part Num?

Anyone have the part num of the aluminum spacer that replaces the stud that gets in the way of top end work. 2009 530 it was changed to an aluminum spacer that makes the work easier. Looking to get one for my 08 after I cut off the piece.

Hey Osteo,

Yeah I'm OK. It was a get-off, not a crash really.

I was at the Port Colborne XC race and they had an 18km loop ending with three logs prior to the time check. These logs were about 18' and 12' apart and 18" to 24" tall. On the first lap, I stalled after the first two. So, on the third lap I tried to use a bit more speed and things got away from me on the second and I whiskey throttled the third and landed it but was out of control, so I aborted and hit eject.

I had installed the shorter 25mm bolts on the top holding the handlebar mounts to th riser. I installed the 35mm bolts into the riser and triple clamps. Incorrect according to DirtInBlood who makes them. I can't believe I did not follow the instructions

I'm not sure where the designed weak point is with the riser but on the stock set-up the bar mounts are the cheapest and easiest to repair versus the triple clamp or the handle bars. So, shearing the threads of the rally riser is the best damage I could hope for.

The little alignment tabs on the bottom bar mounts are sheared half off. I'm not sure I need to replace them. They are about $70 at the dealer. I'm think I will mount the damaged ones and see how it torques up.

My clutch cover was getting pretty worn looking after 132hrs of use so I decided a powdercoat job was in order to freshen it up a bit. I headed over to StuckinMud's house and we had it powdercoated minitex black in no time. I added the orange paint into the recessed areas to finish it off. Came out looking pretty sweet.

Hmmmm....That water pump cover might look good in black also

How is the anodizing not fried right off the KTM/ FMF pipe? I think WOT ice racing killed this one. It does have the smallest dB 'sert with the sparky, so I think the heat builds up in there. Anyone else have a bugger of a time getting the seat all the way on with the Clockworks tank?

I would suspect lean jetting? Mine has held up great with no signs of degradation. Yeah the seat is a tight fit with the Clockworks tank, I slide the seat up under the catch on the tank and then use my elbow to pop the seat onto the rear catch....works pretty good that way.

I hook the front then use two hands firmly gripping the back of the seat and give it a quick shove forward...snap! its in.....

I put in 3 washers to raised the front spacer up for the seat mount. Then I put the seat on, shove it all the way forward, and SMACK the rear of the seat and it pops onto the mounting washer and the seat bolt goes right in.

Before that I was swearing at it and concerned it was a piece of crap...


Oh yah, and I rejetted last night the 3rd clip from the top on the JD blue needle to match the cut out insert in the stock muffler.

Thumb Clockwork has great custonmer service.

I've got the Clockworks tanks...first one leaked at the petcock badly. I had another sent to me, arrived with in a few days, and unfortunately this one also leaked and the petcock mounting holes were in the wrong spot.

But Clockwork offered to send me another or refund me. According to KTMTalk they made improvements to their process and the current ones are much better fit.

FWIW, a crafty moto bud of mine made the tank work and I have not had a problem. But if I had a problem, I am sure they would give me a new one.
