tank removal

did any of your bikes come with the wash plugs for the tank hose when removing the tank - Am I missing something here? I dont have anything to keep fuel from going everywhere if it has gas when I take the tank off - I desmogged it before ever riding it and had to use a come along to hold the tank up - now I need to do the first service but I dont want to chance the come along route again

It is not gravity fed like a carb bike on prime. Its vacuum. I little bit will come out from within the hose. Have a paper towel handy. No big deal. And yes, I actually DID get the wash plugs.

Thanks again Abyss. Came in last week. My HDB kit from Paul shipped yesterday, so I anticipate a weekend of wrenching. Spooned on my 705's today and holding air


First time to change tires. Neduro's thread helped quite a bit with "if it's hard, your doing something wrong"
I got a 90/90 21 front and went with a 4.10/18 rear. It looks a bit small, but that rim is tiny.

I learned a lot. Also picked up a tip from a you tube video of some guy named Dungey that rides KTM I think....
I used a thin coat of bearing grease on the tube when i put it back in the tire. that tire iron had no chance of snagging it.

I did use windex on the bead, and the grease on the tube. That could get messy out in the dirt. Since it was my first tire change i wanted all the tricks. You might try to change them dry, just make sure the opposite side of bead is down in middle of wheel when getting that first or last part of the bead off/on the rim.

Those are the stock fork guards that I trimmed. I cut the backs off and notched the sides to clear the front tire. Ktm Powerparts sells these already notched and ready but only in black, grey and orange. Why not white instead of grey! Who knows...

17x5.00 Rear Rim 160/60-17 Pirelli Diablo Tire. Barely clears the chain. Had to shorten the front chain guide bolt to clear the rim. Also couldn't use the nut so used red lock tight to hold the bolt in place.

17x3.50 Front Rim. Fits no problem except the tire rubs the fork guards which need to be notched. 120-70-17 front. I've seen some guys run 150/60-17 in the rear and 110/70-17 in front to better clear everything.

That's an '83 KZ1000R2. Only the '82 KZ1000R1 was actually called an Eddie Lawson Replica; the '83 was called a Superbike Replica because Eddie Lawson went to Europe to ride a Yamaha !

Trivia that only an '82 ELR owner would know.

Stabalizer

Took my bike on the street the other day to see how fast it will go stock. I hit 90 no problem with more throttle to go, but damm it was so squirrely I had to slow down. Does anyone else have this problem? Has anyone added a stabilizer?

I've done 80 on the interstate before, with a load on the rear rack, didn't notice any squirrels trying to steer for me.....

The stock front tire is very squirrelly on the road, just about anything is better that it on the road
