After some mods and 22.000 km., a couple of pics of the sexy beast, just to cheer up a bit the thread





I love this bike!

SMR wanted

I'm looking for a cherry SMR 2010 or 2011, I assume you guys would post here first before trading in at a dealer or something crazy like that?

Hi George,
What did you replace it with? Did you get the T model?

George,
Yes it matters.
Be careful installing front wheel on this bike!

UPDATED:

There are 3 things that you can misalign while mounting the front wheel on this bike if you are not careful,
and the bike's handling will suffer greatly if you get these wrong.
The KTM OWNER'S MANUAL leaves out some steps which are often necessary.
Also, KTM's method of aligning the fork tubes by pumping them up and down, does not always work well
(as confirmed some time ago by Cycle World Magazine).
The Motion Pro Fork Alignment Tool offers a better way to ACTUALLY MEASURE IT!


INSTALLING FRONT WHEEL:
Before I begin, I set my large metrictorquewrench to 45NM, & my small metrictorquewrench to 15 NM.
Also I remove the little spoiler fender for better fork alignment access.
(Left and right always refers to your left and right as you sit on the bike).

1. Hold wheel with one hand, slide axle thru fork and wheel with other hand.
2. Screw the big fat screw into the end of the axle.
3. Snap your 12mm allensocket onto your large metrictorquewrench and try to tighten to 45Newtonmeters.
4. If axle tries to slip inside the fork as it often does before you can reach 45NM, then tighten one pinchbolt on the RIGHT fork to hold it stationary for a moment.
5. Torque fat bolt to 45NM.
6. Loosen pinchbolt on RIGHT fork before you forget.
7. Torque both pinchbolts on the LEFT fork to 15NM and get that out of the way.
8. NOW
set Motionpro forkalignment tool to the measurement at the top of the forks as per instructions that come with that tool, and adjust the lower fork legs to match.
9. Torque both pinchbolts on RIGHT fork to 15NM. Now double check the alignment measurement of the fork tops with the fork bottoms.
10. Mount both calipers, but do not tighten yet.
11. Pump up the front brake lever.
12. To align the 2 calipers, spin the front wheel hard and SLAM on front brake while it spins. Repeat this several times. After the last spin & slam, don't let go of the lever.
13. Use your other hand to bind the brake lever shut with strap or zip tie or duct tape or something.
14. Snap your #45 Torxit socket onto your large metrictorquewrench, and torque all 4 brake caliper bolts to 45NM.
15. Unbind lever.
16. IMPORTANT! : Spin wheel hard. If it doesn't spin easily, loosen caliper bolts and repeat steps 10 - 15 until it does spin easily.
17. WHILE THE FRONT BRAKE DISCS ARE STILL COLD, ride the bike about 1/4 mile WITHOUT touching the front brake lever. Stop and feel BOTH front discs to make sure they are BOTH cold. If either is warmer, go back and start over.

General rule of thumb: (never contained in manuals) After remounting ANY motorcycle wheel, spin the wheel hard and hit the brakes.
If it doesn't feel right, take it apart and start again.

Thanks for that very useful post! Will re-install my front wheel once the motion pro tool comes in! My brakes are dragging a bit and no doubt it is because front wheel was not installed properly.

You are welcome. You can get the 2 fork legs perfectly parallel with that tool, and THEN work on aligning your block calipers. (Aligning the calipers first, and THEN trying to align the fork tubes that calipers are bolted to, just doesn't make sense. Their method will sometimes leave you with an aligned LEFT caliper, and a misaligned Right caliper and fork leg). The bike just can't move perfectly through the curves unless all 3 things are aligned.

Eh? Rear sprocket replacement.

I just now replaced my drive chain and both sprockets at 17,000 miles.
The rear sprocket is mounted differently than any bike I have had in the past. The "bolts" come from inside the hub and the oval shaped "nuts" are facing out. So the bolts must be torqued to the sprocket carrier while detached from the wheel. I used a vise with aluminum jaws to hold the sprocket carrier while removing then torquing those cylinder shaped "bolts."
Make sure you have all the right tools before you try this job.

You can also wrap your old chain around the sprocket and clamp the chain in the vise to keep the sprocket and carrier from rotating while you torque it.

Cheers,
