    I remove skid plates for cleaning inspection when needed but prefer a skidplate that allows me to change the oil without fussing with the plate if possible. Less to attend to, especially when doing an oil change in the field during a trip. The EE plate allows removal of the oil screens and filter without pulling the plate off. Not a deal breaker either way but convienant. But I change my oil at roughly twice the frequency called for in the manual. On my fourth oil change now.

    I too change the oil around 5k since my trips are fairly short and cause more running hours than on road. Maybe I'm just used to remove covers with excs almost after every ride. I did once test oil change with skid on and ended up removing it afterwards to clean up half of the oil on top of skid.. That one was 'designed' for not to be removed on oil change - yeah, like it ever pours evenly straight down..

    Nope. Regardless of what the manual says, I'll be flushing ze fluids every 5000 km.

    Just got home from getting my cruise flashed. Boy does that tickle my inner old man.

    seat concepts normal/comfort seat did not tickle anything. It disappeared under my butt, which is what you want a seat to do, right?

    Do you have an o-ring groove or some sealing paste in that cnc machined flange?
    And is the oil rad from an other bike or off the shelf from a manufacturer?
    Very interesting job there

    Installed my Camel ADV KTM 790 ADV Shock Heat Shield today. It came pretty fast in the mail and the install was easy. I actually got it installed without lifting the bike up, I just assembled it after I wiggled it into place.
