I love how you have that bike set up. For the riding I do, I should do similar.
Very well done man!
Been riding it a bit lately. Still fun after all these years. From an earlier tag get- before it got too cold. Almost looks clean in this picture
Walter,... didn't you have an Adventure or an SE also??
Speaking of which: I discovered that the 10 amp switched accessory circuit is insufficient to run BOTH my heated jacket liner AND gloves at the same time. So, I have to probably run a 15-amp line to the powerlet plug if I want all my gear to work.
Been running my heated grips on the switched circuit and my heated jacket on it's own un-switched circuit. All has been well until I forgot to turn off the jacket's heat controller a few weeks ago. Drained the battery dead, good thing I have a LiFePo battery. Recharged it, so far it's been holding the charge. Fingers crossed.
Yes to both
I recently purchased a 2006 950 with 9300 miles and after riding it a little, I'm going through the entire bike. I've checked the valves (in spec!) and am currently sorting the jetting, but I've found a couple of unconnected electrical connectors and I'm not sure what they originally went to.
This one is behind the battery box:
And this one is on the left side, next to the airbox and under the tank:
I am waiting on delivery of the service manual, but figured that asking here wouldn't hurt. Does anyone know what connected to these?
This great epic thread has already answered several questions for me, thanks in advance for any help.
They are supposed to be that way is the short answer.
The first is for the optional alarm, power connection if I recall correctly.
The second is for the diagnostic tool.
I can't say for sure. But I recall some wiring provisions for Fuel Injection, which the 950 didn't get, and for carb heaters on some bikes headed for cold weather markets.
Thanks for the quick answer, you guys are fast!
I've been reading this thread and I'm up to page 288. Looking forward to finishing this up and riding the wheels off of my new (to me) bike.
I decide to add more protection from the cold . . . So I can enjoy riding more in the winter. Works great . . . Easy to adjust and pops out in seconds. I now have a Touring Bike toooo. . . . "Short Tours"
What touring bike did you get ?
Short motorcycle tours through the North GA mountains etc.
It is taller than my previous 690 SM Tall shield:
I had one of those on my XL600!
It is tipped back to allow a 3/4" air gap at the bottom to help counter any buffeting etc.
mcmann i was wondering where you got the shield at [small one]. Also do you think it would fit a 990smr.
Links below. You have to drill to fit . . . Should fit like my '07 SM. Ktmtwins has several shield choices
would i have to drill the shield? also does it seem to help the wind at all? I am 5'8 to give a height comparison.
The shield is pre-drilled . . . You will need to drill your mask. It helps block the wind nicely. Perfect in the summer . . . A little more shield is helpful in the winter.
I had the same shield on my previous 950SE too:
