    Took the ferry to Nanaimo, road to Tofino. Found another use for the 990: wet suit drying rack.

    well, Anti Gravity 16 cell small case fits nicely, turn it ccw sideways, so terminals are on left side. perfect!

    upper minus, down plus-terminal.
    grey filling stuff is from package;
    plus-cable is partly in a white plastic tube, so it won't wear off as 'grinding' against chassis (original cable did, and old battery died...);
    minus-cable makes a loop down to reduce excess length.

    In the middle of a valve check.

    Rear cylinder: perfect. Spot on perfect.

    Front cylinder: one in middle of tolerance, 2 at limit of tolerance, one barely over tolerance (exhaust .33) :baldy

    Oh, and apparently someone put RTV on the gasket so when I pulled the front cover off I had to pull RTV out of the cam chain. If this isn't Factory KTM I'm about to go shoot the mechanic at the KTM dealer that did my last valve check.

    So now I've pulled the radiator and blown about a pint of fluid all over the garage, even after draining through the water pump drain. The front header is thrown somewhere in the garage also. It's a good thing I was planning on doing a basic WP replacement too.

    It means Infidel. But you can believe the slow part. But to be honest I can keep up with most in the dirt and I can hold my own on pavement.

    Installed some new ebay mirrors. They look real nice for 23$. However, they vibrate quite a bit on the highway making it difficult to see if the car following me is a cop..

    Those mirrors are very similar to the late model KLX250 mirrors. I've been thinking of making that swap. Either that, or the SMT mirrors.

    Here are the KLX mirrors...
