That what I'm using 9.4 shock spring SX, TC forks 50. Fork springs ( got all that rally crap hanging off the front )
Ran at 163.8kph for a couple minutes no head shake but vibe or two with unblanced wheels

I was trying to get that bolt out to lift the tank to adjust the spring and ran into the same problem. Did the spring another way. So never ended up taking it out. But the local KTM dealer had to figure it out as they did not know the solution at first either.
I don't think there is a nut visible on the other side. This is on the side of the plastic rear fender. There are 4 of them. Two under the seat and two on either side of the fender. From the diagram, it is #11 on the left side.

Try side pressure with an impact driver. Anti sieze all your bolts for this reason.

while were on the topic. I am trying to do the throttle stop adjustment for the Vortex install and was wondering how you get the threaded aluminum cover off the top of the adjustment screw.

I was able to work around my bolt without taking it out. It was just a bit of a PITA to get the exhaust hanger bolts off. All this to change the fuel pump. It really isn't a bad job except for the gas that runs out when you pull the pump.

Now my problem is the bike won't fire..... Fuel pump primes but it doesn't fire. The other thing I notices was that all of my instrament panel goes off each time the bike cranks. I'll have to pull the pump again and make sure there are no kinks in the lines and everything looks good.

That is possible but how would I try to diagnose that one? Pull the fuel line up stream from everything and see if it is spitting fuel?

Anybody clean one of these injectors in an ultrasonic?



Spray pattern was sketchy after a CA Cycleworks fuel pump, but I didn't see what it looked like before. 5k miles on the bike. Runs, but cuts out and dies at speed like it's not fueling. Pump runs, lots of fuel upstream all the way to the injector. Replaced QD with the NAPA filter. I'll reinstall it in the AM and see what the pattern looks like. Is it worth carrying a spare on the bike? What's the rate of failure for the injectors?

That's how I do mine. I've changed the injector 3 times in 11k miles. They work like new after the ultrasonic bath.

Good question.....? So far I just have two OEM units that I switch up and keep clean with the jewelry cleaner.

A better question might be. How is cranks conversion going....????
I like his Ideas. Simple system. Readily available parts. Bomber wiring harness. I'd pay for this setup.
