    Brought this home to keep it company. The bike. I already had the pup.

    Just seemed fitting to put a German dog on a German bike. I imagine the BMW and KTM are outside speaking German and plotting to take over my house, seeing as I'm part English/Scottish. They may just annex the kitchen though; my family is originally from Germany.

    Now, that's funny!

    However, as a part (among other things) Scottish Englishman, who's worked for a couple of German companies involved in the bike industry (one of which I now despise and one which I still admire greatly) in my time, I can reassure you that you'll be fine...

    If your house is located outside of the Fatherland, the Bavarian one is unlikely to acknowledge it even exists!



    :hide I'm kidding too...

    Kinda. :lol3


    Congrats on the new machinery!

    The chokes should be done in a few weeks - we are just about finished with our test set and then Chris will work on being able to program the machining on the 4-axis so that the mod can be done on existing carbs. The choke will be lever operated from the original perch on the bar. We should have updates in my build thread in the next few weeks before the bike is torn down again to start the AWD conversion and the big bore.

    Put 200kms on her on Friday and decided to pull the trigger on more luggage space today. New Givi Trekker 46L. Pretty sweet. Gave her a proper wash to get all the ice and salt build up off too. [​IMG]

    Looks like you've got the "Extreme Tough lights" LED signals there.

    1. Direct plugh and play with the KTM option they have?
    2. Did you need any resistor or similar to get the correct flash rate?

    Didn't buy the KTM ones so had to modify the wiring. I do need a resistor. Love the solidity of them and they are quite bright. I will be replacing the factory rear signals with a set as well. They are very nice quality.

    Good for riding dirt bikes. Not so good for squeezing onto track bikes. Or finding pants that fit.

    So, in the end, could be worse! :lol3

    Would love to hear how you feel about the flex bar and if it's worth the $. Is the Enduro 12deg pretty much the same bend, etc as the stock fat bar?

    Thanks

    EDIT EDIT>>> Found the other thread w/specifics on install and set up. Any on the/off the road testing yet?

    That is awesome!

    And per ca, the price ain't so bad. I just paid 3.699/gal for 91 octane in Turlock today, though I could only manage about 5 gallons.

    990 Improvements:

    For cold weather, wrapped my clutch lever with shrink wrap:
    [​IMG]

    When I installed the throttle lock, my cut down brake lever was moved too far over. It was a 1 1/2 finger position. I banged some 1/2" aluminum tube into an oval, did a little grinding on the lever, and banged the extension in place with copious amounts of JB weld. The works were then shrink wrapped. I now have an extra long lever that can be used with 2-4 fingers. It should dramatically improve my braking power.

    Only remaining work: Foot peg extensions and Oberon clutch slave cylinder.
