Did you not gt a parts manual with your new '12 bike?
A good quality and inexpensive option to OEM is Hiflo Oil Filter HF 155 & 157- $5.00ea HF157 is the small filter
I can ship you some if you like
They don't make a short oil filter for the 2012 yet (the design changed).
I didn't get a parts manual; I bought the bike used, from a guy (even though it only had 220 miles or so on it). All it came with was an owners manual.
sorry for that- Hiflo has it wrong
here you go
KTM PN: 75038046100 OIL FILTER SHORT
It should also be noted that HiFlo makes the filters for KTM and KTM then puts their stamp on them and doubles the price
No the plugs are different but the wiring maybe the same you might be able to do s plug swap
It will be a fiddly pia job .
Oh you will have no taco if you do the swap
I've seen folks on supermotojunkie.com take their speedos apart, clean and reseal them.
Is this helpful?
I just cleaned mine out a few weeks ago. Turned out one of the pins for the LCD was broken so I had to solder. I can also recommend using some di-electric grease on the pins for the LCD. This will help the crappy connection.
I can post pics if you want.
I need to do a valve check, I understand how to do it but I'm not sure about the TDC part, does anyone have info/pictures on how to do that?
There's a timing mark on the camshaft, you'll see it when you are looking down on it right by the timing chain gear. Also, the holes will line up that allow you to remove the rocker arm shafts when you're at TDC.
There are 3 holes in the cam shaft gear. You turn the crank shaft CCW until the center hole is about at the 8mm bolt that holds the cam shaft in. Shine a light through this hole, there is a small line on the cam shaft and a small line on the camshaft retainer. When they line up, you are at TDC. Sorry I don't have a pic.
Here's a pic of the timing mark:
And the hole alignment
Nice picture of the upside down wreak on the beach!
There is TDCF and TDCE... you will want to line up the crank mark as well...as you want TDCF---firing...all valves closed.
I just wiggle the rocker arms, if they have some slop then I know I'm at TDCF.
I don't bother even lining up marks but I figured the new guy would be safer doing it the factory way
The cam shaft rotates 1 time for every 2 times the crank shaft rotates. So if you line up the cam shaft mark, it will always be TDC firing.
I don't have pictures yet but, here's the text.
