I took off the crappy Touratech side stand foot and put on a real steel Sasquatch setup. Much nicer and looks and feels a lot beefier. Nice steel plates. It is bigger and heavier.

Don't get me wrong, the Touratech one works, but the aluminum bends. I had to shim it multiple times and it was always coming loose and vibrating. I could never get it tight after the first month of ownership.

I figured since I am in the northwest, a Sasquatch would be better than a Camel.

Finally put the BDCW side stand relocate kit on, and Dr.Beans circuit board in the fuel pump. At 16k the points met at a 45 degree angle. Went as smooth as silk. Did both in two hours thanks to some really well engineered products. Thanks Guys! (Bean and Black Dog)

the stand is bolted to the engine casing, the relocator mod fixes it to the sub frame.

Yes and no. Some kits "relocate" the sidestand bracket altogether, while other kits just fortify the stock mounting location. The idea is to make it so that any "force" on the sidestand (either by having it down while getting onto the bike, or by hitting it when it's up during a crash) won't crack the case at the stock mount.

You can find dozens of other references to these kits on this board. If you have a 950 or 990 Adventure and don't have one, do yourself a big favor and get one!

I bailed it out of the Harley shop.... Bali Harley Doctor to be precise. "Shark" did a brilliant job sorting out the carbies - one of the pilot jets had clogged when I left the bike here for a few months. When I got her going again the other day, she'd only run without backfiring like mad if I kept the choke on. She's fine now.

I also fitted a new knobby to the front. The last one lasted 3000km

I haven't seen another KTM for the last 10,000km or so btw.

Tomorrow we head for Java and the Bromo volcano.... which I'm told is spewing lava at the moment.

I put the KTM sidestand pad on mine; seems well built and not as bulky as the Camel Toe (which I also have).

For less than $30 we can get you a new one as it's a pain and time consuming to try and clean these.
