I drained what I could, pulled the plugs and air filter, rolled it over, started it up, then rode to crappy tire in Katata, did an oil change there. Rode home and did another oil change, then did another one later that night (new filter too).

The oil is still a little white so I'm going to do another one or two tomorrow after work. I need to get the engine nice and warm to get the last bit of water to evaporate.

I guess the vent line got pinched and that wasn't really a KTM thing, it just happened on a ktm. it started just shortly after and ran the rest of the day... that video is pretty funny though..... gee thanks

Fuel pump is my guess, starts as an intermittent issue then one day stops all together...

Brrr. We went 274 kms today, leaving the house at 11:00, after I put my new rear wheel bearings in.

Temperature was +3.5 C for about the last hour, and the highest we saw was 6.

+5, finally.



Oddly enough, this turned into another 274 km ride. Our second this weekend.

What a beauty day, and why am I working? At least I was able to ride to work though.
