Insomnia Sucks...so I make the best of it when I can

I woke up at 2:45 AM and could not sleep anymore so I went to work on the 990.....I Threw on the new Skid plate (Orange one from Slavens); Rear Master Cylinder Guard (KTM Twins), Fork Bleeders (Orange ones from Slavens), Frame guards (KTM Twins), The over-sized KTM factory rear brake toe pedal (KTMparts.com) and the Black Dog Cylcle Works Right side cooling fan.




Got the Oberon Clutch Slave Cylinder (and metal mounting spacer) on the way....A Scotts Steering Stablizer , Fork springs and the Un-corking /De-smogging block off Plate Mods with power Commander are planned soon.

Once She's done being built to suit me and I have the Vacation time saved up; It will be time to go for a nice long trip.

After I put the 990 back together I have a few adjustments to make to the 530 as well and then it will be time to flip a coin to decide which one I will take for a ride


later.





Oh; And I found a use for that little piece of cable that comes in the tool kit; It works well ;)

Took mine apart. I had some investigating to do and wanted to see what all the fuss is about. I got it stripped down, but I still don't see what the fuss is about. It was pretty straight forward and simple IMHO.

It's not so bad coming apart. It can be a handful going back together. There's a bit of an art to it, particularly if you have crash bars. Getting everything lined up so that you can get the crashbar bolt started into the engine hanger at the same time you line up the little aluminum cover can be a chore. A lot of people just convert the front mount points to studs, which improves things A LOT: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=626041

Also, the trick on starting the lower tank bolt is to just barely start the other two tank bolts -- just barely. Leave the loose. Then you have a lot of room to move the tank around to get the lower tank bolt started. Once everything's started, start tightening.

Oh, now you tell me.

I got it all together without any issues. I always leave all possible bolts loos until the end to make sure I can get things lined up and all fasteners started. Just common practice for me. Thanks for the link on the stud thing though. I noticed the threads that go through my crash bars and hold that top aluminum plate on are pretty trashed. I'm going to have to address that one of these days.

Another trick is to drill a hole through the mounting point for the lower tank bolts and then replace the original lower bolt with a longer through bolt (nut on the outside). This bolt functions like a stud and makes the lower tank mount a snap.

I put a Cox Racing radiator guard on my 2008 Super Duke today. Overall, this is a very nice product. It's relatively inexpensive, easy to install and looks great. It perfectly matches the concave shape of the SD rad and after my test ride I didn't notice any rattles or movement from the screen. I also have more peace of mind knowing that a stray stone isn't going to puncture my radiator potentially costing me thousands for a replacement. All in all I give this product an enthusiastic thumbs up!
