Mait, I didn't found them UK-guys..
I met some guys on the 2010 Intermot in Cologne,Germany.
We built a couple of pistons at my spec, I reamed one barrel last week (I mentioned allready, I think),
and get the whole bunch assembled...

Cheers,
Lars

After that I'll blow them dry with compressed air and check each hole gently with a broach.
I use new seals, and change the worn parts...

On some carbs I had the engine stalling when decelerationing, caused by heavy worn nozzle needle...

Bluesman, I do remember, for sure
I left the compression at stock (for the moment... hrrhrr), maybe the next pistons get slightly higher compression ratio.
I want to get the engine running... for the next step

Thx Resi I will give that a go, do you buy the parts from wemoto oh from where?
Many Thx

Mate, no, we've got in germany some suppliers, too.
But I think wemoto makes good prices for this stuff.
When you buy these tiny o-seals at Suzuki, you'll pay a lot of bucks...
If you find out that the needles and/or nozzles are worn, drop me a PN ;)

Cheers,
Lars

Don't really think its a KTM issue as such, ran fuel low about 20Km into low fuel light (sometimes I go up to 60Km) bike started to miss as if running out of gas when heavy throttle was used so I presume it was low fuel, refuel expecting problem to go away but it only got worse, bike will run on light throttles but completely dies on heavier usage, which was fun on the way home as at about 105kph on the motorway it would die and slow to about 50kph before regaining fuel and taking off again (a bit dangerous in traffic)

I'm thinking its water in the Carb after running low fuel?

Haven't been bothered as after my shoulder injury, have found KTM hard on me were as DR gives me an easier time of things (especially off road)

So no biggy that KTM is down for now


and One up for the DR

800rider,
What you describes looks like problem one of 990 owners I know had.
It was something to do with filter and pressure regulator. Cleaning mainly.
He developed solution to make it easier by (if memory serves me right) moving pressure regulator to outside of tank or something like it.

Here is photos

disregarding Russian text

http://kickstarter.org/forum/index.p...7392#msg107392

http://kickstarter.org/forum/index.p...7393#msg107393

http://kickstarter.org/forum/index.p...7395#msg107395

http://kickstarter.org/forum/index.p...7396#msg107396

And filter from Chrysler Voyager 3 liter (mitsubishi motor)

http://kickstarter.org/forum/index.p...99681#msg99681

He says that if engine get's really hot and petrol is let say not perfect the flow rate of original filters combo kinda s...s and bike start to behave as you described. So he made this mod.

Running low on fuel allows a lot of fuel sloshing and moving arround and stirs up all the crud, and allso refueling with a low tank stirs it all up again, its amazing some times when you clean the tanks out and wonder where did all this crap come from .
I thought I bought clean fuel .

Hello!

I'm Kuba and I'm from Poland, I couldn't find any "Hello" thread on this forum. I was always a reader, now I wish to join this very interesting 'population'

I've got the biggest thumper in the world as I might say all in this thread :)

Here's my BIG, actually this forum was the reason to build my own DR BIG....








A lot of work but it runs great!!!!!!!!!

Nicely done

Kuba astr

Welcome...what a great first post and nicely done BIG. If there were more than a handful in the US, I'd want one just like that to compliment the one I have.

Please give us list of what you've done. The side panels/rear fender/silencer all fit together very well.

Many thanks Ladder!

It was very nice time to change the DR Big from regular to pure off road version.
What I did:

1. LC 640 front forks WP40 USD, removed original axis from DR to KTM forks for original bearings
2. Tank from DR650RE (I wanted an Acerbis but htere was problem with supplier, I waited 3 months and then cancelled order, grr...)
3. removed all original parts, even back frame is modified for TTE600 back-parts
4. Front brake from LC4 Brembo kit
5. Polisport fron/back light and front fender
6. Acrapovic exchaust, with homologation for on-road
7. Original wheels, painted in black
8. only GPS in cockpit, accessory clutch lever
9. stickers are home-made by plotter and vector graphics (lot,lot,lot of work...)

Here are few more pics from building my BIG....



The BIG problem:


And solution:









And at the end.........
