    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.

    It was a little high for the area. I just wasnt willing to run out of gas completely.

    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.

    Yeah, I did my valves and a fluids change too....okay well that took more like another day.

    Peanuts, I didn't change that - this is actually the first I've heard of it, and I've gone through the HOW in great depth. My bike's an 04 950 Adv - is it something I should be worried about?

    Hi after installing HID lights my pass switch seamed useless as HID high beam take a bit to warm up so i ran two wires from the trip master plug behind the head light ( found colour code for the wires on this site after a search) and soldered them into the pass switch. i can now scroll through the modes hands never leaving the bars.

    Please elaborate.

    BTW, the longer front brake lever has make a huge difference on my 990. I found the front brakes somewhat marginal. Better pads would probably help. I should give the rotors a quick sanding as well.
