    Here's where I put my can am filter. It's got easy access and maintains the QD in the original spot.

    Here's the EE guard. You do have to grind the bar some to get the 15t on but it will fit.

    I ended up installing mine on the pump side of the connector. Not ideal as the filter is not between the connector and injector. However, (as someone already mentioned) there is not a lot of room on the injector side of the connector and I was worried about kinking the line.

    Hope that helps.

    Would one of the KTM roadbook carriers work for you?

    Perfect - and thanks for the image too.

    I gotta ask - what's that clear tube zip-tied to the wires? That's where my clutch line is...

    Re converting the existing subframe into a fuel tank:
    I have the complete process with instructions and photos from Amme who has said I can post it up on this thread. But now I know why he didn't... If anyone knows how to convert a .pdf file into a format that can be put up here, PM me and I'll email you the file. :ear

    Recluse - they have you attach a small tube for the clutch delete.

    I don't know what a "old berg" mask is (09?) looks like. For what it is worth... I had this on my 07 exc with a 08 KTM mask.

    OK, I searched the other threads and didn't really find an answer.

    It started just today. I warmed her up, went to the end of the driveway and smelled coolant. I looked down and noticed a splash out of the overflow. Odd, I thought. I figured maybe just a burp. So I went down the road to the gate, up and around and double checked. Coolant was now streaming out of the overflow. It wasn't overheating. The fan (yes I have one) wasn't running. I could touch the rads with bare hands and hold them. I popped the rad cap off(It seemed way too easy) and lots of milky foam was at the top. Odd, I thought. I started the bike, and the coolant rose, bubbled and went up and down with RPM. Odd, I thought.

    So I turned around, went home and came here.

    Prognosis gentlemen? Head gasket or loose rad cap or something else?

    Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Oh, it still has tons of power, and no evidence of coolant in the oil.

    Sounds like the head gasket to me.

    The higher pressure oil is being pumped into the lower pressure coolant.

    If your coolant level is going up, is your oil level going down?

    Make sure it is not something simple like it is overfilled. When cold, the coolant should just cover the top of the fins and no higher. Any more than that, all the extra will overflow out. A different cap is easy to try out too.

    The coolant level hasn't changed in 20 hours. This started just all of a sudden.

    There is no visible evidence of oil in the coolant either.

    I let her cool down and the foam disappeared. The level was below the fins, so I topped it up a bit.

    I flashed her up with the cap off, when reving, the coolant just went up and down gently with the rpm.

    I put the cap back on, then warmed it up practicing wheelies up and down the driveway for 15-20 min or so. No coolant coming out. I parked it, let it cool enough to take the cap off.

    This time, when reving, it started out smooth, but after a minute or so, bubbles started showing up...more and more agressive as time went on.

    I'm starting to suspect head gasket. But I'm trying to eliminate the simple stuff.

    OH, and this time, I tightened the cap by bending the tabs a bit.

    When you said "milky foam" I thought that meant something else besides coolant was in there (ie oil).

    If that's not the case then I think (some small amount of) the cylinder pressure is escaping (through a break in the head gasket) into a coolant passage - over pressurizing/introducing gas (not gasoline) into the cooling system.

    Yep, sorry for not being clear. By milky foam, I just meant really fine bubbles like it's been whipped by a cappucino machine.

    I'm starting to think head gasket also.

    Link to PDF of conversion provided by Åmme.

    The subframe does look different than mine and that extends beyond the color (black vs grey).

    Thanks to Blakduk for also sending me a copy to post.

    Thank you so much for putting that up! Also, thanks Amme for making the howto.

    It doesn't look too bad, provided the subframe doesn't leak too bad on its own.
