I had a spare rear and a front Ed, after the first one I used the front 21" in the rear and found a bike shop and bought another rear just in case.

Once I realised what it was that was causing the punctures I broke the bead which was sticking out and tried tucking it deeper into the tyre below the other complete beads.

Didn't last long, I guess two up and loaded didn't help either

Ouch.. makes for a long day.
We were once riding in the mountains above Aspen when a buddy of mine had 4 flats in a row. He had 2 tubes, I gave him one, and another guy gave him one (no stores available for 230832048 miles ).
Poor guy.

I take it you're talking about the tubes

That's what mates are for

Wings on

I put some wings on my orange beast:





And Scotch Brited off the baked on mud and wiped some dust from the last ride.



15 minute FI run and throttle calibration. Prepped and ready to fly early tomorrow morning.

Oil change...

I completed a little oil change, on the SE, today.

I didn't see any waves in the oil filter (water pump)...but, what do I know? I thought I would post a photo, in the event that one of the OC gurus disagreed...

I like the lower tone of the exhaust and it is quieter than I expected (good ). Runs cool; you can touch the cans while the bike is running without burning.

30 minutes, $35 dollars ...what should have come on the bike from the factory

Yes, I know there are lots of excuses why KTM does not provide a radiator expansion tank on an EXC .... yada, yada, yada - it needs one. I did search and didn't find this cheap mod so I thought I would share it. With roughly thirty-five dollars in parts and 30 minutes of my time, I now have a radiator expansion tank on my 06 450 EXC - I tested it today on a 100 mile ride and it works perfectly. Part number 19110-KSC-000- Radiator reserve from service honda + a few other small items totaling about $35-40 - or, buy off ebay like i did and get everything for $20

Flapendectomy

Done in a few minutes. A lot quicker than expected
Did not remove the caps from the tank. The only tricky part was to keep the steelplate inside the red cap in the correct position during assembly.
Be careful when removing the red cap, to keep that steelplate inside in the right position.

OK so a list of mods this week and a pic. BDR 2-1 exhaust with a Remus Carbon can. Enduro high fender kit. Full size cigarette lighter adapter that plugs into the trickle charger inlet. Bleed brakes and replaced fluids. Installed fork button bleeders. SW Motech crash bars. Installed aux lights. Removed the bags and racks till the next adventure.

Just got my seat back from XPC. Can't say I'm blown away with their workmanship. Way too much leather wrapped around the edges that had to be trimmed. Also a loose staple that poked through my skin as I tried to put it on the first time.

Regardless, the seat is more comfortable than the stocker.

Also added a touring windscreen and a 37 ltr tail case. Damn.....this is a great bike!

Comleted SAS Removal -Overheated Loose Carbs



Well on a rainy day, I finally got around to complete the Full Cannisterectomy. Since I did not have time to order the Block Off Plates, got some Flat Stock and made some where they were painted Gold. Took out the CarbVent Y hoses and added the 11" Front Carb Vent and 10" Rear Carb Vent Tube through the Carb Box Bottom.

Have to admire those who have Removed the Rightside Block Off Plate without loosening the Radiator and related hoses...it was tough even then.

Had to Replace one of the Oil Sump Hose since due my grace, got punctured.

Then after I got all together found the Bike running Hot. When it was re-examined, found that the Carbs were just resting on top of the Boots. I was really surprised that it ran at all.

ReSynced the Carbs which were a little off at 5k RPM.

Now that I got it all together again find that is is Running Smoother, Starts Easier when Hot, Runs Cooler, and getting Better Gas Mileage.

Thanks to those who provided all the HOW TO's on getting this job done!
