    I was modifying the screen for the twin light insert so did the lip at the same time purely for looks.

    275 mile ride yesterday through the CO mountains. First I snagged the tag in Fairplay.

    Then we stopped for lunch in South Park.

    Then after cutting across the mountain into Breckenridge and through the ring of fire that is Denver I stopped in for a pint.

    Once I got home I installed the CJ Designs clutch cooler/reservoir that showed up in the mail.

    I could see where the larger reservoir would be a benefit, but a cooler? :huh There is no measurable heat generated in the master cylinder.

    I don't know I wanted to flush out the system and add some bling at the same time. Plus it orange. :)

    "The CJ Designs KTM hydraulic clutch cooler holds more than 3X the stock amount of fluid, and helps to keep your clutch fluid cooler and topped off."

    Finally finished the engine rebuild and got the bike running. Here's the bike as we were doing exhaust gas testing.

    After putting on a prefilter it was restricting this a bit, wanting to keep the jetting factory for our trip I opened up the side triangles a little bit, use green scrubbies from the kitchen department, they cost 1 Quetzale each so about 12.5 cents each ... big spenda :D

    This is the M1 version retained by mesh, hopefully this will derestrict it enough to hold factory jetting.......let ya know what happens .

    Tomorrow we leave Antigua and head for Guatemala city till Monday then off to El Salvador.

    Dropped mine off at STM Suspensions to get the forks serviced. On the way there I stopped by Elite Motorsports in Loveland and rode their 990 Baja demo bike. Man did I like that. I don't know why people say the fuel injection isn't as smooth as the carbs, the bike was a lot smoother than my 950. Stock exhaust note left a lot to be desired but it was a sweet bike.

    I wonder if I should buy one, wait for the 1190, or just keep my 950.

    On another note, I'm really contemplating the CJ Designs dual cooling fan kit. Anybody using it? Thoughts?

    I am going to order one of the second fan kits as well.....

    Tonight I went into the garage to install my new brake pads to get the %*$#@$^) squeeling to stop!! I made a special trip on Saturday to the nearest KTM store (about 45 miles) to get pads. Left the store happy. Tonight not so happy.........wrong pads. :fyyff

    Why me?

    Second cooling fan has been great on my 990. I would overheat in slow traffic after coming off of a freeway run on even moderately warm days. I installed a 2nd cooling fan and voilá, no more overheating, even in 95 degree heat. I have the lower temp sensor ready to install if needed, but haven't needed it yet.

    Hope it does the trick for you.

    Yeah, me too. I got stuck in traffic hell coming down I-70 and my temp light came on a few times. Never for more than a few seconds but still. The bike also spit coolant out if the overflow hose on the expansion tank. FYI, when that happens your boot gets wet and it burns a bit.

    Lights and saw carrier worked well. Gave new meaning to "Bike to work day". Rode & cleared trail after my day job. Eventually ran out of daylight (and energy).

    OC, that piston skirt looks a bit bright - is it worn? Have you a better photo?
