    The mid pipe was replaced as the original had been altered for a single pipe set-up.
    The subframe has been braced in the usual spot at the rear and powder coated, possibly another repair, hasn't worried me too much.
    I also have the standard airbox with the foam prefilter.

    No, it was changed over before I got it.
    The guy had made the crossover pipe out of the original mid, not realising that the midpipe was about $450.
    I prefer to have the dual pipes.
    Not sure if I have the altered mid, I think I have.

    Does that pipe shield stuff deflect much heat?

    It will do a bit. The radiant heat should be reduced quite a lot.

    Anyone running a rottwieller intake with filter skins.
    If so, where did you get them?
    The postage is a killer for such a cheap item.

    Not all fuel pumps are created equal Al. Looked at those could not find specs on it.

    Not many have a pressure bypass or inbuilt check valves.
    The pressure is quite important on the 950 or a regulator of some description needs to be fitted.
    The check valve will hopefully negate the need to turn the fuel off all the time with some of these vacuum pumps and electrical. They can get siphoning which can lead to hydraulic lock on start up.
    Wasn't looking for the cheapest option.:-)

    Why replace the fuel pump BB? Did you consider the Dr Bean mod? From all accounts the pump itself is quite good, it is just the points that let it down.

    Apparently he did, but didn't have the stock pump to begin with.

    Well anyway, I've got mine all ready for the upcoming ktm rally other than fitting up the big tank ..
    Thought I'd take it for a 80 k loop early this morning.
    Um... new gt723 and wet roads dont mix well.
    Or do, depending on how you view things.
    Am really looking forward to a full week on this bike.
    Other than spare tubes and a Boltz pack and a spare rec/reg, anything else I should take ?

    Maybe think about it after the rally. Perhaps.
    Six bikes is just a bit too many.....

    It's hard to admit that you have too many bikes but the rego does kill you, especially if they are not your main source of transport.

    Hey Ritcho, I have mounted a spare rec/reg under the seat ,relocated the original to the left side of bike ,still on the original,(have a digital volt meter on dash,to monitor)I carry a spare aftermarket electric fuel pump on a custom mount for the safari tank with a deutsch plug ,replaced the original at 14 k when it died.i carry a spare small Shoria battery,to jump start myself or as a replacement,I put GB racing covers on to stop the brake pedal ,gear lever puncturing the covers .i also put on a Scott's Rear disc guard. A brake snake is handy,radguard do a guard for the SE.spare brake pads can be bolted inside the edges of B and B bash plate,their is room to mount spare gear lever brake pedal under the seat,saddlemen do a great seat.Oxford heated grips are good.a side stand relocation bracket to get it off the engine .a steering dampner is a good investment.

    Thanks mate.
    It's got new pads, uhd tubes and tyres all fitted in last 2 weeks.
    Has the heat shield under rec reg and a spare rec.
    Has carbon case guard over right side crankcase.
    Will look at spare levers to take... and a portable battery jumper pack.
    Fuel pump ( factory ktm) is two rides old, should last this ride. If not there's a ktm parts truck coming along.
    Rad guard will be investigated.
    Hopefully all bases covered otherwise.
    Cheers
