Oh, I never want to even drive on that stuff again.
I need to go put a sweater on just looking at that picture.
"Studly Adventurer" for certain.

Broke the chain.

Unbelievably though, it happened only a couple miles from home and didn't do any major damage, only some scratches on the swingarm:)

10k miles on it..

Looks like it could have done with a bit of lube

Installed some toggle switches for heated grips and aux lights into the stock housing, was tight but possible, should even be possible to squeeze a third in there should I find a need for it:

Quick Relase for SHED 45 Box

I purchased a used SHED 45 box from an inmate. The box comes with a modular mounting plate. The box connects to the plate with a lockable quick release mechanism. The rack has multiple mounting holes that can be used to attach it to the bike with 4 screws:



The Dirty Dak already has a Black Dog rear rack with a SW-MOTECH horse-shoe style quick release bracket for the KTM Rear Tail bag:



I want to keep the Black Dog plate and the SW_MOTECH bracket, but also have a quick release for the SHED mounting plate.

Solution: make room for the SW-MOTECH quick release horseshoe inside the SHED plate. This is done by cutting the plastic square support ribs on the under side of the plate:



The solution are 4 clevis and 4 cotter pins:



The clevis pins fit exactly into the SHED's plate little red shims. The lanyard cable is there to ensure the cutter pins won't get lost if they slip out of the clevis pins:



The clevis pins are just long enough to make it past the Black Dog plate.


To attach the SHED plate, lower it down onto the Black Dog plate, lining up the clevis pins with the 4 newly drilled holes:



Slide the cutter pins into the clevis pins:



SHED plate and SW-MOTECH are now attached to the Black Dog plate:





And the SHED 45 is mounted on the Dirty Dak with 4 quick release pins:



Total cost for the quick release 8 pins and 2 cable lanyards: $12, including shipping

SAS removal , Cannisterectomy , Rottweiler air intake , Snap Out Glove ( easy bake oven ) box, Doghouse, and used Tune ECU and uploaded a different map and the bike actually runs ! The last bit I am most proud of as changing the map was the scariest , yet easiest part of the whole project.

Very cool. I plan on adding the intake and toybox soon. I figure when I do the valve check/set in a month or so. I don't have ABS so I'll have a ton of storage under the seat.
Which map did you end up using?

What Did You Do To Your KTM Today?

I used the one from Rottweiler's site listed as "09-13_ADV_990__2_into_1__Rottweiler_Intake"

Unfortunately it's the middle of winter here in Canada so I'll have to pick a good day and go try it out.

I'll be searching for other maps too but needed to get one on and the stock R map off.

No ABS here either , it really is amazing the amount of room under here with the combo.

I have a 990R as well and was told that map would be safe to use. I have dual Akros.
Did you lose the release cable for the glove box lid when you did the conversion to the snap out? Just wondering if I should just yank it out.

I looked at KTM Twins and found a map for the twin akro's and Rottweiler intake for 2011. Should be fine.
We'll see.

Twin Carbon Leo's here and was told the same. I think more and more custom maps will be available very soon.


I personally did ditch the cable but it's very easily reversed anyways.

I didn't want to have the ability to easily remove the glovebox but
not have the ability to put it anywhere but hang it off the side of the bike by the cable.
