HH bolt on the shift lever (Adventure) M6 Loctite 243 + 10 Nm

There is a big difference between 10 and 25 Nm on a 6mm bolt, as in it will break at 25Nm....

thanks for correcting that 10Nm
loctite 242 i been using for near 15 yrs now on my speedway , mx , enduro , road bikes & our A class pro buggie & B class superlite buggie. never had a problem.

Is your Tail Lamp Lens Loose ?

I cut a piece of 3/8" thick heavy foam with adhesive on one side & stuck it to the
underside of the rear fender above the red lens to hold it snug.
Sorry I dont have pic but it works

that was an easy fix, my lever didn't need to be bent, once i took it off and put it back on and lowered it a bit it worked fine. I don't have any loctite, but will try to pick some up soon. I also have the same issue with my brake lights, and not sure how to fix it. slight braking with just the rear brake won't turn the light on. potentially you could slow down pretty fast by downshifting and a bit of rear brake, and the driver behind wouldn't see any brake light. I usually try to use the front as well when in traffic, but I'd like to fix this problem if there is a simple fix.

adjust the pushrod.

adjusting one way will make the brake light come on later & the other come on sooner (if too much the brake light & brake will stay on)

You guys actually use a torque wrench to tighten your shift lever bolt? Talk about OCD.....


Yo JJ,

Have I seen a picture of your new steed yet? I am just fixing up an 800 Beemer, I have a feeling that I'll want to trade it in on a SE after the first ride around the block... Less weight, more power!

Or you can even buy a pretty KTM version...

Part U6951172, about $25.

Do both of those work on the SE shock? The reason I'm asking is that they look pretty different in the contact patch area as well as the "open" part that goes around the ring.

It took you some time Lukas to realise, but you're there eventually

LukasM "slumming" in the humble, little thread I started...To what do I owe this honor?

I don't think you've seen a picture of my SE, yet. I've had the thing quite awhile. However, I didn't start showing it alot of love until it took-over the DR's daily duties...Then, the "fine-tuning" began.

Congrats. on the 800. I think they are great bikes...Rotax, aren't they? Dude, you know you're a KaTooM guy. How in the world did you wind-up with the 800? I think every bike you own has some KTM part integrated. What's the project this time?...WP suspension and a 690E fender on the Beemer?

I'll tell you man...I don't think any bike has the "edge" of the SE. I parked it at a little get-together, this weekend, amidst several "pricey" steeds. There were people around it all day. They were posing and taking pictures with the damn thing!...like it was a porn star at a movie premiere. I thought about charging for the photo ops.

On top of it being edgy, there are some guys, here (in the OC), who can ride it like it's a 200-pound enduro weapon. I can't, but some can. Because of them, I am continually amazed at the beating it is capable of.

Here is a gratuitous "portrait" for your viewing pleasure...

It is nothing more than a "wrapped", white Arai VX-Pro3.
