Yes the Safari will flood you rear if you fill it up and dont close the tap, gravity sucks sometimes.

I had a problem one time when i filled the front tank and then overfilled the rear ( gas level above the connection from the front tank )

As long as you dont overfill the setup is golden and no moving parts or exposed hoses

Filter you asked about connects like this :

you can use any filter there that you want since it is low pressure. Not sure about the overflow but it should work...as long as there is a breather on the aux tank. Otherwise if the main tank builds pressure fuel will not flow.

Hi

I've got a 09 SMC and just mounted a LV can, but if I try to pull it sideways it doesn't sit very good. Any advise on how to mount it better?

And second, is anyone riding with the twin air/rallyraid filter setup? http://www.rally-raidproducts.co.uk/...-foam-twin-air
Many folks are talking about a booming sound with the KTM evo box, is it the same sound with the foam filter?

Do the valves on these bikes have a tendency to tighten up at all? I always do maintenance a little early and was wondering if I should check my valve clearances now (5k miles) or just wait until the recommended KTM interval at 6,000 miles. Thoughts?

I'm running on RR foam filter, really love it. Currently on stock can, if i swap in for LV pipe the combine "sound" from the exhaust and filter is too loud for my comfort. It really down to individual tolerance.

Ear plugs.......

My favourites that I buy by the box....



or others you may like: http://www.howardleight.com/ear-protection/earplugs

Some folks buy custom plugs.....whatever way you go, earplugs are a standard bit of protective equipment ....

I wear them to reduce the ear damage caused by the buffeting wind in my helmet.....and not the "noise" so much.

I suspect I will have to adjust the valves for the first time when I get in there to change the head gasket...10,000 miles

I checked mine at 6,000 miles and they were all pretty tight. Borderline out of spec tight. Bike was running OK though.

Head gasket? Is that a common issue? Never heard of it being a problem.

I've heard of one 690 motor needing any shims replaced, and local ktm dealership, Moore and Sons of Santa Cruz, said they have never reshimmed one. At 10k miles my Duke was all in spec, I won't bother to even check the enduro until 10k.

My intakes were at the tight end of being in spec at 7500 miles and just required going to one size smaller shim (traded at the Harley dealer for free) to be back at the loose end. Now at 12000 miles and they are all still in spec.

On a different note: I ordered new bearings for my rear shock 2 weeks ago (lower is shot) and received an email that they are not in stock with KTM and have a due date near the end of May. Does anyone know of an interchange with KTM part # R15006 "REPAIR KIT BEARINGS" or a source that would likely have them in stock?
