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?

Was told by KTM tech. that the voltage regulator from an adventur or super duke is the same voltage regulator in the 950 SE, the only difference is the length of the wire leads. Do not know if they are on backorder too?

VRRPM a no go

Thanks for the advice, I actually found the same site after searching. They do not offer a voltage regulator that will work for the SE.

Anyone have any other suggestions? I was thinking there has got to be another voltage regulator that could be used off another bike. Wouldn't it be easy enough to splice in another high amp/watt voltage regulator from a touring bike or something?

I hate to put the bike away for a month in the fall waiting for a KTM piece.

Quick note about my previous issue with "clicking noise". I know what is doing it now. The bark busters. Not sure why but it appears as the handle bar flexes ever so slightly as I turn it the bark busters are torquing enough to allow them to click as the collar moves ever so slightly. I tightened them down a bit more and it helped but is still not perfect.

Kick. Anyone?
