At this pace, this thread might go on forever!

I am finally back in gear and have made some progress.



KTM Adventure forks and wheels are on. I'm working on the remote oil filter now and will be extending the swingarm in the next few weeks. Then I have to bend some 1/25" square tube into a lower frame cradle to add some strength.

It's amazing how damn expensive KTM Adventure parts are and how hard they are to source! It does feel good to be back moving forward again though!

You got it. I think I had room to leave the filter where it was but filters are pretty thin skinned and a well placed rock could have ruined my day pretty easily.

So I believe that you are going to build some kind of skidplate? The crankcase is not that strong...

If the skidplate is robust, you may leave the filter there...

Yes, I'm building a lower frame cradle out of 1.25" squaretube and then a skidplate below that.

With a 21" front wheel, I originally moved the filter for space reasons but now I'm glad because of it's vulnerable location as well.

Wow, what a pain in the ass!
The remote oil filter kits I bought are made by Spectre and come with all sorts of fittings and parts. The kits could be used on pretty much any engine but using hard oil lines instead of rubber ones turned out to be loads of fun!
Each manifold has two 3/8 NPT threaded ports but one on each manifold was left hand threaded! Trying to find a brake line adapter fitting in left hand thread was impossible so I had those ports welded up and re-tapped them with normal 3/8 NPT.






Now, I get to shim the pressure bypass valve to increase the pressure a bit and off we go.....................
