Thoughts?


The A990 bags WILL scratch up the surface of your fuel tanks over time - if you don't run the guards then at least put some Mylar or something underneath to protect the tanks from abrasion.

Doing a ride in one month that could involve some goopy spots. Would like to put on a high fender as a preventative measure. Front fender is a $300 part, making me very hesitant to carve it up.

Dealer told me that most folks butcher the front fender to retain fork protectors and ABS mount.

Here's the HOW: http://www.ktm950.info/how/Farkels/a...ender_kit.html

I have the part number for a white fender around here someplace- I can dig it up if you need it.

I drilled an extra hole in the new fork protectors, and carved the tab off the ABS sensor.

Works a treat.

Thanks FN! Very helpful.

I'm sure I can figure it out, but if you have any close up pics of sensor mount that would be very helpful.

So I gotta ride from NC to Colorado planned for this summer.
Tonight, during our anniversary dinner, my wife says.... "So, what's it going to take to get your KTM ready for your Colorado ride?"



God, I love this woman!

POS started to sputter/stall again. I really wish I knew what it was.
