I would first check throttle cable and brake line shield.

I know what you mean about the awkward moments. I guess thats what my hesitation is about, changing one of the main characteristics of the bike. I only have the 400 tamer cam and haven't installed yet. Might be my project this evening. Will report back.

I checked them again and the tripple. No visible sign of wear or cause for the noise. Clicking does not occur with weight off the front tire. It also only seems to happen near the ends of the turning range. So it's not the triple hitting at the end it's before then. I'm stumped.

It does seem to resonate thru the handle bars from the fork tubes. But the compression from the tubes feels good and there's no fork fluid leaking.

G2 throttle tamer

Installation was very easy except for getting grip back on in correct location 20 minutes total. Was using the ProTaper grip glue and it does dry FAST !
Took bike out for a quick spin, first impression was a much smoother throttle. However, I found myself reaching around and grabbing for more.

Felt like lots of play in throttle cable like needed adjustment.

Will take some getting used to...This is a quick first impression so final judgment is still out.

Do they make a 300 cam???

I needed to top off my hydraulic clutch resevoir today on my 950 SE, and found it only took a specific type of mineral oil made by motorex....I drove a total of 120 miles to pick some up from my nearest dealer....In the future, if I need to 'top' it off, does anyone know of anything that I could use in its place that I could pick up at an automotive store???

I used "Mineral Oil" from a Drug Store in my 690 Enduro Hydraulic Clutch

The Lever pull feels stiffer when cold, but it's been working fine for over

a Year just fine

Fork Oil (lots of guys like 2.5W but you can use any weight the pull just may seem heavier with say 7W)
Honda ATF
Baby Oil

If you had to top it off I would check your clutch slave for weeping/leaking.

Voltage regulator?

Like many others my voltage regulator just went bad. A call to the local KTM dealer and I found the same as others - it is backordered until November. I was planning a long ride next month - it is BS to wait a couple months for a voltage regulator. I have called around and haven't been able to locate one.

Any idea's where I might be able to find one? KTM World, Munn Racing, and Bike Bandit all came up empty handed.

Are there any other options out there for a non stock replacement?

Thanks for any suggestions!

I was told by ktm tech that voltage regulator from an adventure or super duke is the same the only difference is the length of the wire leads. Do not know if they are on backorder as well?
