Well I don't know how differently the Austrians speak German from the rest of the germanic folk; if it's as different as Australian English or Jamaican/Hawaiian English (pigeon) is from US English... So I used an example I knew. (Plus I knew y'all down there could contribute some humor to this sillyness ) The governor of California is from Austria too, although they Austrians have disowned him since he upheld the death penalty. He speaks funny English too.

Did you ever see a flick called "The Harder They Come" with Jimmy Cliff? It's subtitled even though they speak "English" in Jamaica.

Nup. But I have seen 'merican tv news clips with English subtitles on native English (as distinct from "U.S. English") speakers that were pretty easy to understand... that is, at a level that would mean they'd need subtitles for 90% of the brits/scots/irish & kiwis I speak to.

Aussie to Merican translation thread.

Have to be ready for your sense of humor...

Speaking of humor, Mrs. Popsicle and I were at a restaurant this weekend and it was us and only one other table with two older fellas - so it was quiet. These two guys were kinda loud anyways; stereotypical Texans. Here's the gist of their conversation with the waiter:

Texan #1: "Where you from?"
Waiter: "I'm from Fiji."
Texan #2: "Ah, sure are alot of you Indians in Houston."
Texan #1: "Yep, all over the place!"
Waiter: (blinks)
Texan #2: "What's that Indian's name who works at... "
Texan #1: "... yeah, but he's from that island near India. What's it called?"
Texan #2: "Panama! No, that's not it... I think it's called Sri Lanka."
Waiter: (smiles)

Mrs. Popsicle and I hid or faces from the shame of it. Probably too pathetic to be funny actually.

Anyone have a torque value for the frame oil plug? The plug for the frame oil fill hole up by the headset. I've looked at the torque values in the manual couple of times, and searched here, with no luck. It is M16x1.5 if that helps.

I can't find it in any of my reference material either. It's steel on steel with a copper crush washer and oil on the threads... so I always used around 20-25 Nm. Never leaked, never felt "strippy".

Thanks for checking your noggin'. I got a brand new copper crush washer but it didn't have any effect at 20 Nm. I'll try 25 Nm and see if that helps, but it's a strange deal because it never leaked before. Maybe it could go higher, at least up to 30 Nm, since that is the torque value for the larger oil drain plug that seats in aluminum.

I'm a lil' gun shy with torques these days. They say when it rains it pours.

I'm sure you could easily go 30Nm with no ill effects. Gun shy with torques? I can't imagine why.

From my '05 manual and the '06 pdf:

It's hiding in the Chassis torques table.

You're welcome.

They must have added after 2003...





Not in the engine chart or in the oil change instructions, where the oil drain plug torque values are copied.

Well, I already cranked her up to 30 Nm, and since it is steel on steel I'm not worried, but I'll go back to 25 Nm for the next copper washer. Thanks warewolf

Typical! The value is in the instuctions in my manual, too.

I guess we should be glad they've corrected an oversight?

I guess it only takes a decade to clear out all the bugs. So you after a 690?

93 LC4 Oil

Just wondered if this is the same system on my 93 EGS LC4.

I have the oil piping entering the frame as shown in your pictures but I don't have the screw-on type filter shown on the bottom of the frame, I have the paper element type filter under the carby in addition to the strainer type filter element you show on the side of the engine.

I was uncertain what the oil change procedure would be as it doesn't fit with either lube system shown in my Cd ROM manual, so I took it to my local KTM dealer who told me the screw on type filter is only for dry sump models and gave me the impression it isn't a frame oil model, If this is the case; why the piping to the frame???

Should I need to bleed it incase they havent. I have run it for a few minutes and the dipstick oil level looks fine

The E is a nice bike, no doubt about it. I'd have one in a flash if I didn't have to pay for it, but mine's too new to trade at the moment. And not sure I want to move from the A to the E... maybe, maybe not.
