I think you should call it "the decapitatooooor"
vspeed what size Touratech are those?
They are the 31L. As you probably know, they're also available in (I think) a 38L and 45L size. I was worried that the 31's would be too small, but I think they're gonna work just fine for me. I had BMW System cases on my R1150GS and on my F650GS. I don't remember what the capacity was on those, but these seem comparable in size.
Holy Crap, what an improvement!
Had I known, I'd have chopped it off before it left the dealer and the 1600+ mile ride home.
Outch, what dealer do you go to my fellow belgian.
Hot Motorbikes at Theux!
The key broke because I put another one on the key ring and the other key get stucked in the corner under the dashboard then when I turned the handlebar, the bike key broke in two pieces :eek1
Swapped suspension with a great guy that wanted lower his, also got my renazco tall seat and BRP top clamp with Scott's stabilizer
Need tires next, I only wish there was a thread for that.....
Parked it under a rainbow
And then entered into this:
Along with 5 to 6 other UK KTM forum members. Should be a crack.... Aim to finish, not win! :)
Ridin a 990 at the Iron Giant Kuri?
You're going to run a 990 at Erzberg?!?! :huh

20 1st gear starts, 20 2nd gear starts.To break in the Rekluse. Did all that and it is not very smooth. Hope it gets better.
New in the showroom
Safely back home.
Time to fit the Barrett pipes and lose all those Kilograms.
Side stand relocator and Weld 86 bash plate fitted (wiring to be tidied yet)
High guard, fork protectors and changed to SW Motech crashbars which i modified for RIGID Dually light brackets and made Highway pegs for
Close-up of fork protector mount
Swapped the stock Scorpions for Dunlop 908 RR rear and Michelin Starcross HP4 front knobbies.
Changed out the rear rack, and fitted a Fumoto valve and drain tube for quick oil changes and took care of the "studs" for the bashplate and crashbar mounts.
Installed my BRP top triple clamps and Scotts under bar steering stabiliser.
Made up a custom dash to take heaps of extra switches, wiring, controls etc
It controls (L to R) ABS quick disconnect, Fuel mapping switch, Rigid lights on with Hi-beam / Off / Constantly on with ign. on, 2nd cooling fan switched independantly, Spare switch, and underneath is a Heat-troller for the heated grips
Made up brackets and fitted my TOP SECRET "Ranger Hi-Way pegs" after thinking that all of the bolt-on pegs were junk. These work fantastically and can easily be clicked in, or out with your feet.
(Let's see how long it is before these get copied.....)
Here they are "closed"
And here they are "out for use" and super comfy
You can also see that i've drilled and countersunk the Weld 86 bashplate for some more ventilation to the VR
OK. That's enough TOP SECRET mods for today.
I've only just learnt to put up pics....can you tell?
Received an Excel 17x3.5 and 17x5.00 if only those damn hubs weren't so expensive this project may be under way before Xmas...
Min got stolen last night.
Hope it will be found somewhere untouched, I miss it already.
Sorry to hear that. Hope you find the thieving *#+%^<£,*^'scumbags.
We did an internet payment last week which Well fugwits turned into a paper cheque ... too much fraud in the US the excuse :huh ... now we are a another week behind
But at least we have secured the bike and shipping ... now new rubbers .... luggage etc
changed the oil on my Adventuer and my friend's RC8.
Oil change on RC8 was a so easy. I was shocked.:huh You just need to take out two bolts on the left side that are connected to two screens, that will drain the oil. Then change the filter which is on the same side of course. That's it! It took 20 minutes.
Sweet bike! Where did you get those stickers?
