Another Year Another Look

You may recall a few "not even close to being famous" threads like Another Year Another Look 2010 or the equally unknown Another Year Another Look 2011 thread.

My 950 has gone through many changes, sucked an undisclosed amount of money out of my bank accounts and has provided years of break downs in remote places. I compare it to a Russian high priced whore. Not even close to being predictable, costs a fortune, creates a love hate relationship like no other and yet it's a wild banshee of a ride. It screams, it bucks, it moans but if you act aggressively and take control it is the ultimate ride.

A glimpse to the past. It started out like this...





It later looked like this.....






Then it morphed into this......








As winter set in this past fall it looked like this.....





Today these rear rally replica tanks arrived on my doorstep. Thanks Pete
The build quality and finish are amazing















With the arrival of these tanks I begin the build of the KTM 950 rrr, aka Back and Blacker, ka The Russian Whore
Sorry Flanny, the extra r is just to one up ya
Blacker? That's right Geek
My apologies to Russians whores all over the world, please take no offense I'm just having fun


My bike is currently nothing more than a frame with a leaky engine. Over the next couple of months I'll build what KTM should have sold, in my opinion, from the factory. A rally replica 950

I call mine a KTM 950X. The X stands for all the Xtra time, Xtra crap and Xtra money it has taken.
On second thought I should call it a 950XXX

I can't wait to see what you do!
Pass the popcorn!

It was made by an Italian fellow ($), works amazingly well.


New forks and rear shock were acquired (S lengths) and are on their way to Trailtricks for revalves all the way around.
New rally dash, road book, etc are sitting on my bench
New clutch slave ready for install
Etc, etc

Almost time to start painting

get a wax and grease remover from an auto paint store, should fix you up. Or do you mean actual silicone sealant applied to it, if so, all i got is a razor blade and wipin with the wax and grease remover

Are these the same tanks? And you just got busy with the spray can?

if it peels off in big pieces you're in luck the remainder should come off with alcohol, I hear Austrian chicks love alcohol

This is gonna be cool, those tanks look the bomb man
