In a nut shell: alignment.

What did I do to my KTM today? I left the crash bars in the shop and rode it.

I ordered mine some carbon case protectors (both sides) and the black dog side stand mount (after reading corsachili's tale ).

I figure the ticket the bike got me outta was $300 plus so I should spend that money on it

5/8" socket 3/8" drive, super-magnet inside, specially made for the 990, but no doubt would work on other deep well sparkplug bikes.

from http://www.cjdesignsllc.com/ToolPouch.html

"Sparkplug Socket
Having a sparkplug socket on your bike during trips can save
you from a long walk. Why KTM does not supply one anymore
is beyond me. You can purchase one from them but it's $70,
Why so expensive....who knows? I ordered one in hopes it
would be the 3 piece set they use to supply the pre-06 bikes,
but no luck. It's a 1/2" drive socket that is not practical for trail
use.

Who wants to carry along a huge 1/2" wratchet????

The first one I made out of a 3/8" drive 5/8" deepwell socket
that I ground down to fit into the tight sparkplug bore. Having
this along on my 07 Mexico trip allowed me to get all the water
out of the cylinders, after an unexpected tip over in the river, so
I could continue on.

I used a small 1/4" wratchet with a 1/4" to 3/8" adaptor.

I have cleaned up the design so that you can utilize your stock
tools on the trail, yet still use a torque wrench to precisely install
them at your service interval in the shop.

Recently, I found that a stock Yamaha wrench could be
purchased to accomplish this. I purchased one to see if this
works better. I was not happy with it because while tightening
the plug it tends to become misaligned in the plug bore and rub
on the sides. This gave me an uncertain feel of how tight the
plug was and did not provide easy attachment to a torque
wrench. KTM plug bores are much deeper than this wrench was
designed for.

My socket is turned down to stay straight in the plug bore and
not cause any binding or stuck situations

BTW, it's not a billet sparkplug wrench, it's a standard 5/8" deepwell socket that's been lathe turned-down by CJ Designs to work well with the LC8 engine. If he made them from billet, no doubt they would be anodized orange!
