From the front. If you need extra light just take off the covers, it's like looking at the sun.
The FMF's arrived! New Look. They are a little louder than I thought they would be, but they sound nice and mean. Aluminum can, w/ a Titanium end cap. Q series, forest approved. They must have had a rookie puting the stickers on that day.
The updates. New rear MT90 at 7,800 miles. Still going to run the front. See if it will last another rear.
That's all for now.
Very nice updates! I've never been a fan of how the old FMF's looked, but those new ones are quite nice!
7,800 miles! Did you really put that many on the bike already? You've only had it since what, June? Way to go!
7,860 as of this morning. I can't stop riding this thing. I'm hoping to get a water pump rebuild under warrenty.
Now I know why I had to wait 3 months to get them. The FMF's look pretty nice in black, not so flashy.
Nice work! Do you by chance have a part number for the FMF's? I just went to a KTM Hard Parts website, but couldn't find them. I like them a lot, very subdued and mean looking!
I'll have to look it up, but yes I have it. I think they discontinued the old design and this is the new cut. It might be the same part #, but I'll check. In the 07 hard parts catalog it still shows the old design.
Great site and information, I just picked up my Black 950 Adv. a week ago. I hope I can put half the miles on you have. Only have 200 miles, on her so far; but way better ride than 06 640 adv.(sold). I am a short guy and will be looking for the low gel seat. The 950 height isn't bad after riding the 640 for 6 months.
Things to note:
1) bike stalls when I come to a stop, I can't seem to set the idle(too low or too high)
2)Showed I was low on fuel, but right takn was over half full. (leveled out when opened the fill caps)
3) bike runs hot (fan running alot)
I have a few things to play with but too much fun to ride to worry about it. Just gather information from these sites and
Look for the cannisterectomy thread at the top of the page under hall of widsom threads. You want to get rid of the smog gear as it will cause stalling, esp if you tip it over on the trail. Most of us here have removed it. You can buy blanking plates from a couple sites to block off the ports. Highly recommended.
I am assuming you know how to set the idle with the small thumbwheel on the left side of the bike? My bike occasionally will stall for no reason, but not very often. I've since jetted the bike and adjusted the Idle Air mixture screws which helped out in a major way, along with a carb sync. Mine idles at 1400.
Tanks,. make sure your vent lines are routed properly and not kinked also check to make sure the fuel taps are open on both tanks so they cross level. Pretty sure its your vents.
Bike running hot is probably due to the coolant sytem not being bled properly. You need to get the front wheel 24" off the ground, run the bike with rad cap off, until it starts to get hot. Should get the air out.
Congrats on the the bike purchase. This is a great place to find info on just about anything that may give you grief.
I had mine stall once, when I first got it. Never did it again so far.
I had the same fuel level problem once also. I removed one of the small side panels, below the head light, and when I put it back on a pinched fuel vent line. I fixed that and all was good.
I still have all the cannister crap on. It has never given me any problems. I do check the drain plug once and a while though. I don't know if your bike is brand new or not, but check that out. It's behind the header pipe on the right side. Little fancy alum. plug Make sure the bike is COLD, so you don't burn yourself.
When/if this bike ever gets a rest I plan to remove all the cannister stuff. and make some blanking plates. For now I'm trying to ride it as much as I can before the blizzards come.
As for running hot, If you are riding slow the fan will run alot, but what do you consider hot? Mine took about a .7 Ltrs of coolant in the first 1,200 mile or so. Now it hasn't used any. Maybe they didn't blead it properly at the factory, What ever the case, it's been no problem. Just keep an eye on your overflow tank level.
cjracer, when did you order your FMF cans?, from a dealer?
I ordered a set for my '06 S in July and I am still waiting...
I ordered them a soon as I got my bike, What 4 months ago?:eek1
When I picked up my bike there was some damage from the shipping company. Scratched pannels, hole in the seat, dent in the pipe. All of that got covered under warrenty. I had Wayne order up the FMF's b/c of the price. They were on back order, "You'll have them in Aug" Aug came and went, nothing. Last sun out of the blue they show up and this is what I got.
The part # that was on the box was........
950 ADV SILENCER SET
This is the same # that is in the 07 Hardparts Catalog. The pic is NOT correct.
If they are on order I'm sure these are what you'll get.
Thanks for the info, cjracer, I appreciate it!
Congrats for the bike - I have mine (the pretty one ) 3 months now and I still dont feel like getting off it!
I put some meats on it and the 16th sprocket. I don't have any long trips planned anymore so I thought I would give them a try.
606 front, Teraflex rear.
one more Hand was in the way to block the sun.
Love it. I'm scared of the Tera-flex however. Do you have any shots from the front. Good look'n mods all the way around.
BTW. I'm not a gamblin man, but I would bet that your chain is a tad too tight.
Thanks, This is all I have. I checked the chain after that pick and did loosen it somemore. It looked good in the garage. Thanks for the heads up though.
