Did you ring me last night to day I had something worng with my computer.
NRY you forgot to mention tha alot of other suspension tuners buy parts from TEKNIK too.
Hi Gents is there a thread for installing the RON switch on an 950? Help & piccies would be appreciated.
I didn't take photos of de-installing mine. Its simply a matter of routing two wires to wherever you locate the switch from the joined wires under the seat. I prefer the factory method.... unplug the wires if you fill up with crap fuel... plug them back together if you've got good fuel.
Hi Bigfella,thanks for your reply. It appears by your answer that`s it`s a bit of Fluff & totally uneccesary.
Cheers bloke hope your still travelling & having fun up in Indo.
The problem I had with it was that I could never remember which way was what... and I couldn't detect a difference. I suppose if I'd done the install I would've known, but then I put the multimeter on it and discovered the switch was a dud anyhow... so I took the whole thing off. It isn't hard to do the disconnect thing if you get dud fuel. The guy I bought the bike off reckoned it was worth having in order to take a bit of an edge off the power in slow stuff. I'm not so sure its that noticeable.
Re Indo... I fly back there on Tuesday (although I have a client trying to get me to delay for a few days... which I'm resisting). Should be into Malaysia in a week to 10 days, then head north.
Bigfella, I`m with you on the fact that it is totally unnoticeble when diconnected.Might matter with some really shit fuel in Europe, Africa or something.
Congrats on your travels & look forward to hearing more.
If it's the same/ similar to the 990?
'tis easy to do, buy a switch (Repco,Supercrap..etc) run two wires down to the RON barrel union connect one wire to each side & connect to each side of the switch.
I use a red protecing flip up thingy so it's not switched accidentaly.
Top sw: Fuel, Bottom sw :ABS
Are you happy with the satnav location, doesnt bounce around too much or did you have to reinforce the dash?
Could you please tell me what the height is on the riser of the GPR clamp (not including the Rox)?
Is it the same as the standard bar riser height?
Never bothered with the fuel switch, the fuel in Aust. isnt as bad as 3rd world countries.
Hi Choccoloco and everyone else too.
My first time post, after lots of lurking on this great forum. I might be able to help here, so figured Id finally stick my head up. G'day <?xml:namespace prefix = o /><o></o><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Ive got a 2010 Adv and put a throttle cam on it soon after purchase. After reading lots of bad things about the 990s fuelling, and not being able to get a test ride to find out for myself, Id pretty much written off the KTM as an option. Luckily, I got a test ride and, maybe because I was expecting the bike to rip and snort and buck me over the bars, I came away amazed how manageable it turned out to be. I got a throttle cam kit because there was some surging around town (3-4k rpm), but also to ease me into getting used to all that horsepower off road. I got a G2 kit which came with the 100, 300 and 400 cams. I installed the 300, and found it did make things better.
After 14,000km, I am now well used to the bike and just love it to bits. Maybe it still surges, I just dont notice anymore. I use the clutch to smooth out power delivery at slower speeds, and this has become second nature. Im actually thinking of swapping back to the stock cam, though might try out a 45t rear sprocket first.<o></o>
Just recently I swapped out the exhausts for a set of Wings and while there are lots of benefits, I did not noticed any difference to the fuelling. FWIW, Ive never felt the need to try any of the emissions mods youve probably read about to smooth things out. Id recommend you install a throttle tamer and spend some time on the bike before getting the serious spanners out. <o></o>
Anyway, Im in Canberra and your welcome to have a go on my bike to see for yourself.<o></o>
did you remove the secondary butterflies from the throttle bodies or are they still in there ?
Filled my 990 today, I was just above empty, is it usual to get 8L in the right tank but only 6 in the left side.
8 + 6 = 14
Its supposed to be 19.5 empty to full. Yeah, right side flows to left I think, thats why more seems to go in the right side. Fuel pump is on the left side.
was the reserve light on ?
i can get 46 litres in mine now :huh
Fuel light came on, when riding home Friday, had 7km's to then get home, gave it a quick splash today from jerry can, tops 600-800ml per tank to get back to town which is 12km's, but would have done prolly 20k's by the time I went to servo and light was not back on.
I thought it should have taken more than 14L, but was more surprised about the 2L's extra in the right side.
Just did some farkling this arvo so will see if there is any improvement in mileage and see what next tank fill up holds.
but how long does it take to do an oil change ?
I bought a 12 litre fuel bladder, roll-up.
mmmh hadnt thought of that:eek1 ,will let you know later in the week,gunna pull it apart and change plugs ,oil and filter ,air filter etc ,heading for finke in june i reckon for a look around for a few days or so
hoping to get around the 600km range out of the tank,it seems to be a bit thirster than other 950s for some reason,i dont think i am extra hard on the throttle??
I'm pretty sure reserve is 4 litres, Pbee reckons it could be 3. But judging by your quotes on litres and klms it could be 5.
