Sounds like you have an oil level or oil viscosity issue , probably just needs a service , which should be an annual event for all suspension components Ideally .

I have heard good things about "Chad's offroad suspension"( I think that is the bussiness name ) , no first hand experience with anyone South of Sydney from me though .

Thumb Fixed

Had the back header pipe TIG'd today thanks to the crew at Carline, Gladesville.
Now back to a 2-1 with the Neduro tank to see if I can break it again.

I've known you've had a saggy rear end for years.

Go with IZZY, he's done plenty of work with the big KTMs. Let me know when your heading down there, Ben needs a rear spring changed on his 990 and i've got a couple of forks and rear Sherco shock that needs attention.

How's this for a new one.... I had a blanket get caught in the chain the other day - my guide for the sunrise climb of Mt Ramelau (Timor-Leste) let it get caught..... I'm riding along, minding my own business on this shit downhill "road".... ie rocky track.... and the back wheel locks up and I head for a 50' drop. It took about half an hour to cut it all out and get going again. He was fully ATTGAT of course - thongs, shorts, no helmet. I, at least had shoes, shorts and a helmet on.

I couldn't believe the track that guide took us up. 2:45am... pitch black.... steep, loose 3"-6" rocks and tight uphill turns. "Irresponsible" was the comment from Andras....

My departure from Timor-Leste was a full on drag race with the Immigration guy from T-L. He was stoked.... and blown away. We got through at the southern border post - which everyone said was impossible. There was no-one else there.... and we had to show both customs guys (T-L and Indo) how to do the paperwork.... because they'd never seen a Carnet before.

Oh - speaking of "new ones".... saw a horse being towed by a motorbike today.... and got investigated by undercover cops on Rote Island at midnight last night because they reckoned Andras was an Iranian trying to do a bolt to Oz on a wooden fishing boat.

Sheesh guys.. keep the thread up there eh.

Climbed another volcano yesterday.... Wawo Muda, which blew its top in 2001.

No photos of the gnarly bits - and we parked up and cimbed.... no rescue choppers around here (Bajawa, Flores)





Took in the culture - the Ngada people's ancient megaliths - even our guide got lost - dirt track, bamboo forest ride, etc



Met the locals



But retired to the hot springs with our own pillions. Sadly, we leave Lucia today... we are heading opposite directions

Servicing a 950 Adventure in Sydney

In Sydney does anyone know of a dealership or local mechanic who is competent enough to service a 950 Adv? Ive tried Prorider and Procycles over the last 6 years and I'm now looking to try someone else.

water enters the swingarm via the rubber gromet that covers the acess hole to the lower shock bolt, this causes the chain adjuster bolts to rust.

remove the adjuster bolts, lube them with plenty of anti sieze, drill a 1/8 th hole in the under side of the swingarm (on both sides) at the lowest point ie 5 - 10 mm in front of the weld where the axle blocks sit. Install the adjusters and you'll be good to go.
