KTim, Lucky for us even with all those mods, your ADV isn't going to be able to make it across all that saltwater, so we don't have to worry about being roosted after all! That was a close call. (What next for an encore? Maybe a day spent at the factory, where your offered a used Dakar 700CC rally motor for pennies on the dollar.)

Don't feel too bad, the Porch' is gone, sold a month ago... it was a massive money pit, shit hole, rust bucket anyway.
My remaining cars aren't orange, so I went with an old photo just to pokity poke, poke at cha'.
I'm trying to be unemployed, but the boss thinks I'm funny when I tell him to suck my Johnson.

Oh, hey KTiM, I hope the hole in the end of the Akra can get bigger, it looks about the right size for a 50cc bike now

Hey KtiM,

Is that a spark arrestor in the Akrapovic silencer (mesh looking thing)? Is that factory delivered?

Thanks.

Berti

Orange seat cover is from the 950 GO!!!!! bike, cost 12 UK pounds - about $21.

The insert in the Akra didn't come with the pipe but from KTM-Sommer. The open Akra was too loud for me and with ever increasing pressure on off roading (and motorcycling in general) with noise complaints and reduction of riding areas in Europe I decided to be respnsible and fit what Sommer call a "db eater". It is now slightly louder than the KTM EXC pipe I had on before. Sommer claim no reduction in power but a little less torque in the lower to mid range - we'll see.

The mesh is fitted to the insert but it is not AFAIK approved for US forest use.

Hey KTim, do you know that dba level of your silencer with and without the Sommer part? Also what did that last part cost? Finally, did you ever find out the overall weight saving when moving from the std system to the AKRA..?

PS Been over to Alderney recently? A friend of mine had his army truck delivered there by Naval landing craft back in the days when Ex RN Fathers could pull things like that!

Twas it easy to install on the 640 foam/pan... you know, any folding, cutting, mutilating... or just off with the old-on with the new? Cause it looks

And............what is the part number for the cover?

Thanks,
Creep

My KTM

I am currently getting the bike prepared for the trip across Russia. Here is a picture before I make the modifications.

I picked it up second hand, it is a 2002 model but was only registered in October last year and covered 1026 miles, I have increased this to 1600 before setting about prepping it for the trip, I like riding it a lot.
I have added a chain lubrication system, centre stand, accessory plug, GPS, comfy seat and Low Octane Switch. The octane switch will enable the engine to run on fuel down to 80 octane, it normally requires 95 minimum. I will also have to change the tyres for higher mileage alternatives and run a steel rear sprocket. I have chosen Touratech panniers, Touratech GB are strugling to supply the frames, they sent me the wrong ones three weeks ago.
I am waiting visas for the trip, they should be here next week, I plan to leave 17th May or there abouts.

This bike could be a keeper if it proves successful.
