    Dear Jesus KTM. Take a look at this and ponder a high point vent.

    Just put the bike on center stand and take the rear wheel off and let the back of the bike set on the swing arm. Gets the same burp angle and keeps you from killing yourself by dropping the bike on your self from some crazy Jerry rigged setup devised to raise the front of the 6 plus feet in the air.

    You guys must be engineers thinking of the most complicated solution for easy problems .

    There is an even more easy way of burping your coolant system. Fill as much coolant as possible, go for a short 5-10min ride, get back, fill again, done.

    That high angle front wheel is probably a directive from KTM for workshops that don't have time to ride each motorcycle, and it's quite easy to lift one since they have all the necessary equipment.

    In 12 years I burped the cooling system several times: always used the hose squeeze method, taking my time.
    Never had to add a single drop of coolant afterwards.
    Then I got myself a bike lift and last maintenance I thought "Why not?" and lifted the front wheel.
    Guess what? For the first time in my bike's life I saw the coolant level drop after some time :lol3

    Nothing major. Put in the Rottweiler dog house and wired power to a GPS. Slowly coming together.

    My plan WAS to pull the rear wheel off and tip it back on the stand since I was swapping my wheels around anyhow. Then I forget, and then one thing lead to another. I guarantee everyone here that nothing was “jerry rigged”...”johnny rigged” yes, but jerry rigged no. 1341DF97-6695-49E1-A2D5-E5D2A4E20997.jpeg

    @Qwik I have some led strip like yours and still have to decide where to put them.
    Why you placed them there?

    Nice. Is this the new one coming out (or already out?), or the one that’s been on the market for a while?
