Did you pre-assemble the hoses and then wiggle the entire assembly into place ? Mine used to lead at the thermostat housing and after i replaced the clamp, its now leaking at the cross-over joint (between the bores)
I found out something about silicone hoses & worm clamps-----they leak! Seems the flat spot on the clamp under the screw causes the hose to pinch up so when it cools, leaks..... Consequently you need to use wrap around clamps with silicone hoses, or just use the old style rubber hoses with worm claps like has been used for about 70 years.... no problem mon!

Ordered a set of Heidenau K-60's for spring. I've been running the 908/606 combo but looking for a little longer tread life without sacrificing too much traction.

Looks like you lost a screw out the end of the can.....

After discovering Geek's awesome thread, "Welcome new 9x0 owners...." http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=769525

I got started on the suggestions it contains:

1. Adjusted the steering stops. It was amazing how far out they were!
2. Removed the rubber foot peg isolators....
3. Trimmed the rear mud flap to prevent swing arm scoring. Very easily done, trimmed off about 1/4" x 6" off each edge.
4. Drilled 1/8" drain holes in the lower back ends of the swing arm for water drainage, and removed/cleaned/anti-seized the adjusters to prevent seizing and corrosion.

And these were the suggestions from reading only the first couple of pages from the thread!!

A huge "thanks" to Geek and everyone else for contributing to that thread for us newbies! I'm getting to know the bike and taking care of preventive maintenance type items while seriously "Jonesing" to ride!!

It's a fully rebuilt engine from KTM USA factory mechanic, that's why it's so clean. I used my old hose assy to model the new Samco hoses in place, and built it up piece by piece.



Only had the radiator hoses to connect when I lifted the engine into the frame. Oeticker clamps are great. Used smooth edge Euro groove-screw clamps on the radiator connections (from a KTM dealer), they don't leak.



The cheapie sharp perforated edged screw clamps can damage all kinds of hoses.

Broke my frame

Rode down to Hollister and was having a real fun time, then began hearing some noise when in the air. Stopped to check it out and found the tabs for the center stand stops have broken off, and the PA biker side stand bracket which is bolted to those had sled back and was making contact with the chain when air borne. Looks like I'll need to do some welding soon. Now wear can I get some orange frame paint?

Kubota shop probably. It'd be pretty damn close.

Secretary has to work out of her car to make room for some heated indoor storage.


Actually I am my own secretary and this was a spare office. GF says it should go up on in storage above the offices but I kinda like it here.I pay the bills - I win (for now - she still does the books and has other functions I like )

Moby just spent a month in dry dock for the following:

New dual horns (sounds like a steam ship)
Black Dog skid plate
Welded enlarged side stand pad
Cannisterectomy
Rear ABS disconnect switch
Nerf bars (thanks Geek!)
Gobi bags
Givi Trunk
Replaced snorkel with pre filter
HDB hand guards
Throttle lock
KTM heated grips
0.52 fork springs
Fresh oil in shock & forks
Additional power outlet on dash

The only remaining tasks are an upgrade of the clutch slave cylinder, addition of highway pegs, and a Seat Concepts seat.

Added some Carbon Fiber Bling to My Katoom. Now I just have to find a damned 31mm Socket so I can split the cases on my old motor.
