Finally got around to fitting Steffen's headlight kit.
Today I trow mi K on myself meanwile blow my tire.....
non è facile scrivere mentre mi allaccio il casco...
Got myself a radar detector for xmas.
I learned that the rear Pirelli Scorpion MT90 is steel belted. I had no idea.
New Pirelli on the rear, and a Heidenau (sp?) on the front. I had Woody's put on a 1.85" front rim. Not sure if it's the tire, or the change in rim width, but my first ride on the street shows noticeably different handling. I'm curious to try it in the dirt, but I'm going to have to wait for snow to melt.
A little bit of this
And some more of this
Ended up doing some track side repair
apparently there's a small leak around the sight glass. I've done some research and this could be fixed by using epoxy. My question is: which type of epoxy? For aluminum or plastic?

Rode out to the dry lake.
Fun and scary. I still don't like deep sand.
You are always in cool locales...
El Mirage dry lake.
SCTA runs there..
I robbed the 15amp spare fuse out of it so I could replace the one that went tits up on my John Deere to snow blow the 12+" of snow we got.
Slowly configuring up replacement SE with much needed rider accesories.
After selling off my beloved SE last spring, my replacement 950 SE has been slowly been farled to my liking...
HDB guards, Montana, Kaoko, Tourarech, 690 shield, BDCW and last friday..BAJA Designs Squadrons took off Saturday before sunrise on old
highway 80 east bounfd from San Diego to El Centro..windy but i felt i could not overpower the beams the bike shot out front...
Started tear down to look at the valves .
Installed the Rally pegs from KTM.
Looks like a solid upgrade for the price.
Installed a Kaoko Cruise Control from Touratech...maybe the single greatest trinket I have added! Beautiful little piece, works with the stock handguards, no more tired throttle hand!
...ordered a copper oil drain washer (and several spares) because I lost the original doing an oil change. Thought perhaps it would be ok with just the bolt for a few days if I didn't ride. Not so much. About 2 quarts of fresh oil snuck past the both and onto the garage floor. Cock!
Had the stock battery die on me this morning after just 1.5 years. No warning, bike ran great Saturday, went to start it today and nothing...at all. No crank, no lights, nada.
Got it replaced with an EarthX Lithium, hope this lasts longer. Although now I'm thinking I should add a voltmeter and replace the RR just in case...:eek1
I like mine too, except the 1st weekend I had them installed my pant leg caught on the peg as I tried to put my foot down and I dropped the bike. Felt like an idiot but learned my lesson. They do make a huge difference while standing though.
That sucks. Sounds like a different type of failure than would be caused by the RR or caught by a voltmeter. The voltmeter might be good insurance, but I think most RRs on the 990/950 last pretty well.
I just finally replaced my stock battery (7 years), I put in a motobatt. I think they're good quality for the price, and from what I can glean from the internet, as reliable as anything out there. Yuasas are good when they're good, but I've had some duds (like yours) before too.
Added some more of the dogs to the beast The black dog cycle works skid plate and CPR_Rottweiler intake
F. oil change on the 990 '08
I went to wash my bike
My 2006 eats batteries like snacks. I usually go through another one every year or two. I have had the bike since 2008. I am on my 4th battery now and the one in the bike is now junk (flat and won't take a charge anymore) so I will be buying a 5th one shortly.
Had one fail while riding down the highway at 60mph. Bike just lost power and I had to call for help. Luckily I was only about 2 miles from a friends house with a trailer at the time. Dropped in another battery and I was off again.
