Here's the low cost mod for KLR owners
Just take the rear wheel adjusters and apply anti-sieze compound to the threads -
Fail! Think of this next time you sneeze in a full faced helmet:
My right front turn signal bulb blew. I pulled it and put in a new bulb, bulb turns on - doesn't flash. Left signal flashes. Swap left and right bulbs, right flashes, left no flashy. The way I understand things the flasher is single sided and is normally closed when cold and opens when it heats up from resistance. The old bulb and the old one that is still good are stamped 23 watts on the base, my problem is the biggest one I can find is 4 watts. I have been to two bike shops and 3 auto part stores Is there anyway to make the smaller bulb pull more juice or do I have to take the faring apart and try another flasher? These are the little push and turn bulbs about 1/4 to 5/16 in diameter.
Electrically Inept in Alamosa
are the new bulbs LED? if so you probably need resistors to add load to the circuit.
No Blake they aren't, but those look easier than messing with the fairing. It's a Brittania Composites fairing that was wired by the PO, HD headlights, and difficult to get apart. The wiring is pretty rough, sometimes my grip warmers work, sometimes not. I would like to pull it apart and re-do it all but I'm afraid my headlights would never come on again
It sounds like you might want to do a thorough rewiring job. Tidy up the circuits, make sure that the splices are well done, etc.
Geek swears by using at least 40 feet of red wiring in all applications.
I couldn't agree more, but I'm the guy that had to ask if there was such a thing as a resistor
Getting the bike ready for the desert this weekend just now I was like "yo.. I'm diggin' the no-bend-over fake-dino-juice swap. makes it sheezy my neezy!"
...and then KTM is like "BOOM! You forgot about the lay-the-bike-on-the-ground step mandated in the orange-bible you stoopid-hozy!"
No ouch Leigh.. I laid the bike like that.
That is the owner's manual defined method for putting oil into the oil filter during an oil change.
The "ouch" part was having to take the bike off the lift, do that, then put it back on the lift
Have fun in Tokyo this weekend!
I just skip that part and put oil in the case.
Still looks easier than burping the 950
Almost done with a little project..from her facebook:

‎-- Wheels are done!!! ---
Holy macro - we got done today! Custom front and rear hubs, and four rims for Goodyear Eagle Land Speed tires are finally done! (Two front and two rear rims, to get a full spare set). Rick Larson at Larson Engineering is my hero. He has put in at least 50 hours of sponsored time in this project, and he has let me hang out and help in the shop about 20 of those hours.
Next step is to have all the hubs and rims treated with "Irridite" which is a corrosion resistant coating for aluminum. This will prevent the Bonneville salt from turning the rims into white powder...
After that, Woody's Wheel Works will mount the tires and balance the wheels. Then I only have about a hundred other things to fix on the bike before we are ready to go racing.... :-D
‎300+ MPH wheels are finally done! A little corrosion resistant coating and then its time to mount the Goodyear Eagle Land Speed tires! I can't wait to let that rubber hit the salt...
Just hold on there, we got a couple more months!
I shoulda took a picture this morning at 4am, I was going to ride and left my bike out but it was covered in snow.
I guess this thread fizzled out a few years ago
I've been doing lots of wrenching recently. Today was a beautiful day to be in the shop
