I once lowered the OEM exhaust on my Tiger1050 so I could use same panniers on both sides. I have thought about doing that to the Adventure, but for now have opted to wait. I like the Trekkers 33L but normal mount will have the right pannier sticking out way too far for my liking.

I am looking at the Gobi panniers with Lock-it mounts as they appear to fit closer in and mount the pannier on right side above the exhaust thus should be narrow.

Today's Photos

Hi

This place in the background is called the Arboretum, a government initiative to plant as many trees from all over the world on this massive parcel of land. The views are spectacular, I hope to get better photos when its a fine blue sky day..

Peace





Lovin this bike, and its luvin me back...

On a side note the bike is having its 1,000km service on Friday cost $335aud.
Dealer said they also inspect valves as per ktm requirement.
I would have thought its not necessary to this so early, then again what do i know...

Cool, thanks for the tip on the Gobi's. Always good to have another option. I do like the fact that the racks are removable and the system is kept narrow by mountin above the silencer. I don't like how that makes the panniers sit very high on the bike: no flat surface to put roll bags on top across the bike and an uncomfortable position for the pillion I can imagine. If only they made a Holan system with removable racks .

My owner's manual does not indicate a valve clearance check at 1000KM.

Instructions for the Lock-it mounts to take the H&B panniers, most likely Gobi for me.

P.S. Now back to the F5irehose for Dakar 2014!

I think KTM are concerned that the valve clearances may not have been originally set correctly, so are checking them at the first service.

Dealer should provide documentation from KTM to this effect. They are saying ktm believes this is the case from the factory?

If that is the case why should we be paying for it?! If the valves are incorrectly set, or KTM are concerned the valves are incorrectly set that should be a warranty issue.

Miscellaneous $$4.50
GST $30.45

Mine was done at the same dealership about 6 months ago.
They also did a valve clearance check.
It cost $335.

This lead me to think that some earlier models may have had incorrect clearances from the factory.

When they checked mine I was told they were already correct.

Looks a bit drab, but then I guess if our government is involved.........having an ''R'' model in the foreground would spark the scene up !!!
