New TKC's (finally), Hammerhead extended +10 shifter (frustrating that you have to remove a kickstand spring, however boot reach and leverage is way better now), CJ Designs cut/adjust sidestand (awesome in so many ways however I had mine re-powdercoated for durability), swapped spark arrestors from WFO-style to tube-style to quite the Akros down slightly.

Been too busy riding to post but last week was;

new chain and sprockets
valve check (still the same as the first check after 29,000 more kms)
HDB set up
hardwired my 60CSX
built a new support for the bottom of the rad, the original had busted off the rad totally
new 908rr
BD side stand brace
Evo slave
water pump rebuild
rear pads
cleaned up some wiring
installed a couple low profile tie downs for the great basin
oil change
front wheel bearings
cleaned the prefilter

Next week after work;
fix the switch cluster that's flaky since I dropped it in a water hole last weekend
drill the swingarm
another new 908rr

Ready for 3-4 weeks of touring this sweet place we call BC.

I cut the lighter plug off of a cord I had and went straight to the battery with a fuse at the battery.

Today or more to say this year....

Hmm to much to handle....

1. Exchange the Timing Valve Jackshaft, it was missing some material up at the bearing. Not a manufactor error according to KTM, caused by missing 1000km service (which is performed but missed to report by the garage). Just took 11 months of struggle with the garage and with KTM...
2. Leaking WP seal, the second one in 26000km.
3. Torqued the screws for the oilfilter lid to much, had to rethread...
4. Going to replace the oil pressure switch, lamp is flirting with me (she is sexy but I prefer my human girlfriend...)
5. Change tires to pure roadtires, Conti Trail Attack (Hmmm first time I've seen a highway be called a trail, will NOT use the tires on any kind of trail that don't have tarmac as surface...)
6. Installed a orange nice clutch slave unit from Oberon. Works like a dream, no more dragging.
7. Rode like I stole it....

Yes I know no pics posts are boring posts. ;)

Spent a couple hours swapping the racks and the Hepco Beckers to the 990 ADV from my buddy's 950. Swapped the seat from a Renazco (too tall for me) to the XPC custom racing seat in the photo.

Changed the oil and filters, and adjusted the valves. First time for me with shim and bucket type valves. Took several days to do this. Used V-Rod shims. The instructions from PaoChow in the HOW were invaluable. Seems to be running fine. Taking it out for several hundred miles of riding both off and on pavement this weekend. Weather has warmed up here. Should be fun.

Made the kickstand adjustable, makes it easier when switching between the stock wheels and the 19/17 set:





Final assembly tomorrow, paint is still drying.
