I hope somebody as super smart as LukasM can help me out here.

KTM Part # 75038050044 Oil cooler set. Will it work on my Enduro (I dont see why not) more importantly, anybody know the heat loss involved and the extra oil capacity it would deliver?

How many miles were on your bike when the bearing let go?

Sorry to see, but I guess it could have been worse...

Cheers,

Giant Loop Mojavi Fitment

You may not be able to mount yours as I did if you do not have an anchor point like my rear hand rails.

Here is another photo of how it fits ready to ride with the tail bag installed.

DSCN0478

If you have the grab handles you can use the rear anchor strap as I did securing it through the front mounting point for the handles. I cut off the large buckle (on the rear mounting strap) and retained the feed through loop so that I could tighten the strap and get it to run through the recess for the gas cap while staying out of the way of removing or installing the cap. I see that you also have an Acerbis cap which creates a better recess for burying the strap out of the way of the cap. In my case I simply have to use the quick release on my KTM tail bag and I have access to the gas cap. I also cut down my no slop cap venting valve to clear the top of the tail bag.

Absent the grab handles maybe you can lengthen the rear strap and still mount it the same as mine by securing the longer strap to your rear rack.

If this will work for you then you will use up a bit of the rear seat where the tool bag portion of the Mojavi sits. I have not found this to be a problem in riding as I seldom get that far back on the seat and do not carry passengers.

One other view of my setup.

DSCN0474

A final point. In order to keep the bag from abrading the side panels use some Moleskin on the side of the pockets facing the panels. Works great and costs very little. You can also use Moleskin under the tool bag where it rides on your seat if you mount it like mine.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Giant Loop tank bag with RR tanks

Anyone have a pic of a GL tank bag fitted with the RR tanks.

Whoops

Southerngintlemen,

My post should have been addressed to Folkinride's question as you have solved the problem.

Cheers,

Thanks Xico, as I suspected, looks a little tricky to get to the gas caps. i assume you just push the bag to the side to fuel up.

What are these "miles" you speak of?

He probably wants to know how many kilometres you have on that motor :-)

Not a problem at all. Quick and easy, unless you are racing against the clock. If at the pump, just make sure you point the nozzle forward, or it'll splash back out the tank.

Cheers mate, but I'm not smart, I just read a lot of stuff on the internet.

Unfortunately I don't know anybody that has tried that cooler on the E / R. I do know that it won't fit properly on the SM with a bash plate installed, and that the E/R/SMC frame is a bit different than the SM/Duke frame. Have a look at installation instructions (I can email them to you) and compare it with your current setup with bash plate installed, then you should be able to tell if the hard lines fit around the engine block in their supposed position. Attachment to the bottom of the radiator might also be slightly different, I don't think those are the same either.

All in all it's very unlikely that it will be a straight bolt-on but with some skills and time could probably made to fit. And we'll never know how much is needed until somebody tries. Will it be you?

I think for 250 bones its worth a try. As soon as I pay off my busted bike bill, i'll order this and give it a shot. You dont know what the added capacity in oil is do you?
