As per standard slow progress. But hey ive bought a new(ish) notebook. Then im able to communicate with normal letters again. Heyhooo

Regarding the bike its still at the dealer. I have no idea if its good or bad, I assume its not good, but maybe its just KTM scandinavia or Austria whom is a bit slow in respoding. Thursday im back at normal workpace and will have a chat with him.

In the mean time the mailman has been here a couple of times.

Peg "enhancer"


New HID system, i cant make it work with the original headlight assembly. Will be creative and make my own system.

Looks good but in my opinion i cant make it offroad worthy. To much vibration will kill the mounting points.

Heat protective selfadhesive stuff for the tanks.

Will be testing the 320mm mount. Im still hunting the single setup.

Trying a cheap 320mm disc for start and ill work from there.

Loads of 300mm discs not needed anymore...

A little decorative help in the garage.

Second fan mounting stuff and ITG air filter oil.

Got the added fan wired to the original cable. Thanks Svane.

Behold the beautyness....

Ive been trying to renovate the old standard 21/18 setup. The rear is good enough and ready to go tubeless, but the front is just super smashed up. Hmmm looking for options. Then again im not in a hurry as ive got plenty of wheels on hands. Still waiting for CJs 17/17 spacers and brake converter.

Thats it for now.
A little look into the future.
Beside bike need to get the ECU/immo solved, stuff needed to be done is:

1 - Safaritanks welding. Ive got a connection which is ready to jump the tanks when needed be.

2 - The exhaust needs to be done and my contact should be ready within a week to do this.

3 - My HID conversion should also be done, but i need to build the plate where the projectors should fit in. For that I need the bike...

4 - Lots of small details im not aware of will also be popping up, but that is small stuff compared to what ive seen so far.

Denmark is bathed in the most beautyful weather right now and im sure the last stuff will get sorted. I may even have a bike to ride within a month or so.

I would like to thank Pete640 for being insanely kind. Story is that i he contacted me and offered the reartanks in carbon/kevlar. Thank you Peter, not only have you been very kind and most of all patient, but you build some extremely beautyful stuff. Looking forward to test these tank.

Theantipaul has provided the HDB setup in the early start of the project, but the he also shipped free of charge a schotts submount he had laying around at no charge at all. Thank you.

Svane has been the greatest help of them all. Patiently he has been showing up everytime when needed.

I fucking love this place. Advrider really is a great place to wander.

Immobilizer woes


Heres my own experience of dealing with an immobiliser that shat itself, FWIW not a full solution as your hardware is different but I hope it can help you

My 2010 990R immobilizer went, and no amount of reprogramming etc would sort it. KTM were as useful as a glass hammer, and suggested I change the lot....barrel, RFID antennae, ECU, keys, fuel flaps, under seat key barrell, I didnt even ask the price. Oh, plus it meant I would get a new immobiliser ready to go belly up in Bolivia. Bollox to that

We figured the pre 2008 models had no immobiliser. So we fitted a 2007 ECU we got cheap. Then loaded up 2007 map (this wont look for an immobiliser signal, not sure if there is a RC8 model with no immo that you can do the same trick with.

We got it running, had some issues with the TPS`s so we changed those also.

Now we just used tuneECU to copy and paste the 2010 map tables into the 2007 map file, reaload back up, and bingo!

Good luck mate!

Well looks like the fight will be over. The dealer called me while I was at work. Told me that he had connected the ECU and the Immo. They paired up good and the bike didnt throw any faults anymore. GREAT, but he just couldnt get it to turn over. We debated what ever it could be. He said he absolute couldnt do anything anymore, because of the projects scale. He could tear it down and install a complete new harness and start from there, but it would be EXPENSIVE. I said drop it, ill pick it up when time is. Got the bike home and Svane and i looked it through. And correct it behaved very well though nothing happened when pushing the starter. It made the startup procedure and lights where good, but no turning? We were fooking lost, I tell you gents. This is the first time ive been a bit dissapointed because ive made all the steps correct and i have taken my time at doing the stuff well. Especially the electrical pieces, which i was scared working at because of my lack of knowledge.
Svane brought some beers and we discussed the further move. We agreed to strip the pieces one by one. We started at the starter interlock because it still threw the green "neutral" switch while we would engage the gear. hmmm... The neutral switch and sidestand switch was bought from new as i didnt want to mess with it, like these problems. But hey, we f...king are...
Just trying to clean up the bike and dismounted the Bazzaz unit and mounted the sidestand switch and gear selector in the original harness. Cleared some other stuff. We turned the key and the engine turned as an normal RC8R would......................................

HAHAAAHHAHA, we went insane for a couple of minutes. I dont recall drinking 2-3-4 beers that fast ever...unholy mother of all batcave shit. I just wished my dad could have seen this. AAAAAHhhhhhhhhhhhh what a feeling.

Im sitting here the night after and trying to look into what to do.
My initial thoughts are to dismount the bazzaz unit, but the unit lit up from the start and shouldnt be a problem. hmmm. Would call the danish Bazzaz supplier and try get a new wiring. Regarding the manual ive done it right. But hey Svane says im good at faults

Ill keep you posted when stuff gets hairy. Ive allready booked a holeshot contest with Svane on his KTM 505 against my Behemoth on a sandtrack.

Fuck me. I love this forum.

I'm so happy for you!

Just a random internet stranger who doesn't even own a KTM, but I've been following along with this thread from the start, and really enjoying your cool project.

AAh, so good! Cant wait for the rest of this project's photo's!

Why the bazzas btw? You can perfectly tune the stock ecu with tunecu. Or does it do autotune?

Went to the shed and dismounted the Bazzaz unit complete.

Me and electrics...jeebus

Advanced mode: ON

Made my first attempt on some documentation of the work. Much more to come when i get comfortable with the video/audio editing.

Took some day of from work later in the week to catch up on the project. I need this to be good inside out. Ill start protect every cable as possible and adventurize/Starbuckize it. Booking some exhaust work for the week.
