    Greetings all riders
    Im a 51 yr old Norwegian car mechanic but enough about me.
    After having one of Norways finest Honda Transalp 600 my son made me buy KTM
    After i did , i dont regret it at all. Now since winter is approaching i will spend most of it making my 05 950 into a Repsol Dakar racer with many awesome upgrades and new parts.

    Stay tuned for more info and pictures .

    here is a little taste of how its going to look like :photog

    Looks like your cam lobes surfaces are pitted. IMO I would replace the cam but see what the other members have to say.

    IMPORTANT:
    I would warn anyone with 950-990 adventure with coolant leak, especially if unable to find leak.
    when the water pump shaft is worn, coolant leaking inside the engine, but can not see any difference in oil,
    so my opinion, as a car mechanic, oil filter will become clogged,because the engine has poor lubricating
    and going to get a cam shaft damage same like my did.That is why I recommend replacing the water pump
    every 20 to 30 000 km, do not wait for the engine damage.Replace the water pump is no problem, and costs no more than 50-60 usd :deal
