How's your 690 tanks RR replica coming ??? Haven't heard for a while. I'm waiting ...

Oil Leak

When I had replaced my sprocket (with a 16 tooth KTM) my leak came from my own inexperience...

I could not get that "bent" washer to reseat and hold the nut, so mine would back off. Once I had tried it a couple more times, I realized that it had to be in the right place to "lock" everything secure...

Does that sound like it makes sense? That was last spring already, I'm going by memory here.....

Whatever the problem, sounds "adjustable" without having to be "replaceable"...


Take a second look at er, have fun!!

Have you tried McMaster-Carr or perhaps Grainger? Another alternative would be to buy nylon rod from McMaster and fabricate them yourself using a drill press.

I'd check these sites:
Fastenal
Zoro Tools
Fastener Superstore

as well as Mc Master Carr and Grainger as mentioned.

Little blurry, but you can see the damage beside the cam, the lobe looks fairly similar, like it got hammered. Swapping the timing chain just in case.. KTM has the timing chain back ordered until Manuary, but my parts guy knows a guy who knows a guy thats not Dutch, so the part will be in tomorow.



Small world.




The intake rocker is bakordered until God knows when. I didn't get any serious damage but that roller did dick up the cam lobe alittle. You can see the scoring in the picture. I think it will polish out. The pin that the roller rolls on was also loose in the exhaust rocker. The replacement had a different design.

McMaster-Carr - thanks!!

Was headed down fabricate them path - I've got some left over marine nylon paneling, thought I'd run a 1" round over bit through it then hole saw to pieces.

I lost the exhaust rocker bearing on my 11 a month back. It didn't drop the needles into the case but I figure it was very close.

How long did you guys run those engines with noise before it went catastrophic? Just curious.

Rally raid tank or Safari tank

I have to make my mind soon. Rally raid tank or Safari tank (have to order rally raid adventure fairing)? Any advice?

I suggest the rally raid tanks. Though they hold slightly smaller volume they are a lot easier to take on and off for repairs and maintenance. I have run both and the Safari tank worked fine and offered plenty of range but it was a PITA to install and take off and complicated seat fitment. The RR tanks are a little confusing to install the first time but once on its reasonably easy.

How about handling, did you notice difference between them (safari vs rally raid)?
Comparing to the stock, is it a big difference?

Big difference from stock, of course. Do you notice the difference between 0 and 40#'s in a backpack?

I'd go with the RR tanks. Service is top notch and kit all fits together nicely. I'd be tempted to hold on for the new version of the tanks, or perhaps mine if I bite the bullet and swap out my kit (would love to)
