Thanks - probably could. I carry bungee cords/tie downs anyhow - if I break 'em, can strap 'em down to get home.

Perfect !! I have always been a fan of FMF products. Thanks for the info.

Fmf Q4

So, didn't the 'You might be a Squid' test include a question about installing aftermarket exhaust before some number of miles have passed?

Did the 15 minute idle thing. Seems to run pretty well, slightly louder, but I'm liking 'em.

Guys, Check your Lower Radiator Mount for Looseness

I noticed my lower radiator mount had been moving left & right on the shoulder bolt that threads into the oil tank.

I added 1 thick washer as a shim after this pic . . . [i like using washers or shims to tighten up loose components wherever possible]



sorry for the blurry pic, but you get the idea

Installed an ABS bypass rocker switch! Should have done it the day I bought it.

Fitted a new airfilter and Uni Prefilter, and new exhaust gaskets as my bike didn't have any and the join was leaking.

hey BG, I think you gots the wrong bolt on the rad mount. The ones that hold the oil tank on have a longer shoulder than the rad ones, worth a check

You may be right, but it came brand new like this

I lost one of the oil tank bolts on the left side & noticed it had a shorter shoulder
when I ordered & replaced it.

2010 990 Adventure.
Only 4500 miles, about 500 of which were dusty desert riding.
Did an oil/filter/screen change last week.
Threw on new TKC 80''s last week too.
Yesterday, did an air filter change. Glad I did, that thing was really dirty from breathing dust. I wish I could do the same for my lungs.

I learned how to wrench on my R1200GS, and seeing the complexity of this bike and how it's put together, I'm not sure I'll ever let the dealer touch the bike unless it's a big warranty issue. You can't rush through work on this bike.

New Horns!!!

First, I finished the install of some Fiamm El Grande horns on the old 950:






It's a really tight fit, but it works. For $19 US, the KTM now sounds like a Cadillac! Lovin' that!

Next, I removed the PO's PIAA driving light setup. That is going to be a winter project of relocating the old PIAA's to the crash bars.

Finally, I finished an unfinished project of rejetting the bike to Pyndon specs, or at least as close as I can come.

Mains: 158 front / 160 rear
Idle jets: 42s
Float height: 3.5
Mix screws out: 2 1/8 front, 2 3/8 rear
Needles: middle position (#3): Pyndon uses stock needles, but I only have Factory Pro sets, so I'll have to use those for now.

I finished out by syncing the carbs with the CB Performance gizmo and setting the Throttle Position Sensor (it was a bit off). The end result is fabulous. The bike now has a consistent idle, is powerful throughout the RPM range, and I bet will have much better MPGs than ever before. If I can keep my right wrist out of it.

Had some time in the garage today, I installed some auxiliary lights from Dustjunkie, cleaned up some other wiring.
These lights are hard to describe, out of this world. (Thanks DustJunkie)

Low Beam, pathetic (street light in the distance)


Low + HID High beam, HID is bright


Low +LED, LED is bright too and can be aimed to give wider view


Low + LED + HID high, I'm going to get a ticket


In the couple weeks I've also put on a headlight guard (Thanks Metal),
adjustable folding mirrors (Thanks Jori)
and a TT locking Zumo mount (Thanks Pairowheels)
