Well... that was the 3rd time and it’s starting to sag. All the trips have been really long though. There’s a trick too... to compress the suspension independently.
I need to reinforce the 2” square tube.
Also.. it’s a 950 and weighs about 450 w/o fuel.
3 days and 1500 km's.
Saw pretty much every extreme in weather!
This dust storm followed by rain for the rest of the day was interesting!
Where did you get that clear fairing?
Its a factory KTM 450 RFR screen and headlight.
Hello all this is my 990 ADV S and I love it - Only problem it is a bit heavy on fuel high 7L/100km-
Firstly was wondering if there is anything i should be checking or is that kinda normal.
Also I have 2-1 pipe but unfortunately the LEO VINCE does not work with it as its a bolt flange not slip on.
Does anyone have a single bolt aftermarket exhaust recommendations that would bolt up - If i bought a akropovic off another bike with the same bolt pattern would that work?
As im thinking of going down the rear fuel tank path as rade garage underseat is no longer made ( anyone have either one for sale? :) )
Any info would be great cheers
Jackskipper, 7L is just about right/average. It can take a bit less when you easy on the throttle (who would be?), but can be also more. Forget the fuel consumption, just ride it. I'm Slovakian so our finances are tighter than other western European countries and I was never in my life calculated the fuel consumption. Had an F800GS, took around 4.5 litres but utterly boring. 990 takes around 1.5-2L more and it's a joy to ride. Extra money well spent.
Brave ending a sentence with a preposition.
Rally is in Breckenridge Colorado
That seems like pretty poor economy. In our numbers, 33 mpg. My 2010 990R does 40 minimum and highs over 50 mpg. Akro map and twin akro cans.
here in the US, I've never needed more fuel than OEM.
I do have a 1.75 gallon Rotopax can for some other stuff.
I'd look at valve clearances first, then what map. TuneECU on FB should link to available maps.
Don't know on the end can question.
@Jackskipper Thats pretty bad, the worst I get is 6L/100 but average less.
There are better maps available to install with TuneECU.
If the 2-1 pipe you have has the standard 3 bolt pattern then a single Akra will work very well.
That is what I use in combination with the CJ Design rear tank.
Great combo for me
BTW, what year is yours?
Mine is a 08 - and its recently had a major service including valves?
You would happen to have a spare akro fro your 2-1 set up ? ha
Also where abouts in NSW are you located Im Sydney area.
Sorry mate, dont have the other muffler.
Im in NW Sydney.
Theres some mufflers for sale in Fleamarket atm.
Good weather for the Adventure
So and so...
I didn't mind the rain, but would've been nice to see where I was going (both pics are from today's ride).
Good ride in the Alps Yesterday
rode to work today. The long way. Took a sand nap on the way.
