    Cleaned the clutch jet. Time well spent with noticeable improvement to shifting. I guess flushing the clutch fluid is a good idea for fixing things that aren't broke too.

    I stuffed the new helmet insides into my XD IV.

    And noticed I'd forgotten to order the strap pads. :baldy

    So, the old ones went back in. I wish I could replace the pieces along the collar. The rub between the helmet and the KLIM Latitude jacket collar wears it out. But, then so did the BMW jacket collars. This is my fifth or sixth XD in 16 or so. I'm considering a different jacket, the Adventure Spec Mongolia with a rain shell. But, I have a hiking rain shell that should work, so there is that to keep me occupied.
    I should get to the rear wheel tomorrow too. I set things up to deal with it today, but had to make room for other things, so that bit of fun got postponed.

    Fitted the Tripleclamp air filter kit. I bought it a few months ago. Nicely made and frees up a lot of space.

    Pulled the rear wheel off today and gave it a cleaning.

    Looks better than it did.

    Looks like a proper tart now without the dust, mud and bugs. :imaposer

    Well the U.K. is in lock down so the only way to ride the SE was to do the shopping run.
    First impressions of the Tripleclamp air filter is all good. Hardly any more induction noise.
    My bike has a completely stock carb set up, when I bought the bike it had a 2-1 pipe and was running rich like that.
    I bought a Rottweiler 2-1 and Yoshi silencer from Alon and the bike still ran rich.
    With the air filter kit installed the bike runs perfect, no spitting at low rpm pulls strong through the midrange and top end.
    I will check it with a fuel air meter when things get back to normal but I’m happy as is. I’m at near sea level.
    So for me it was a straight bolt in job.

    Looked like the oil press switch was leaking (hope it’s not the base of the cylinder), so put a new one in. Old one dit not have a seal, is that correct?

    And also gave the carbs a proper ultrasonic clensing.

    Hi
    If I read it correctly, stock carb setup? Isn't going to be too lean?
    Just asking because I'm considering the TripleClamp air cleaner as well but I'm afraid the whole re-jetting is a PITA.

    Thanks to the Halls OF Wisdom I decided the clutch fluid should get regular flushing. That stuff came out black and I know someone changed it at least once in 30,000 miles because it has an Oberon. Bonus is the air in the system I didn't realize was there is gone.

    Well, I removed a lot more stuff from my 990. It is starting to look a bit bare bones these days....

    Mr Head , I noticed the chrome is splitting on your front spokes I replaced my spoke with stainless ones . The original chromed ones are crap. You are on a hiding to nothing if you try to keep them looking good. I don't know what other peoples experiences are ,but the do their bit for me and are a lot cheaper than new wheels . Saying that I did replace the Standard KTM Cheese rim as well .

    Yes my carbs are as per the factory standard set up. As I mentioned I’m running the 2-1 exhaust and the bike has always been on the rich side. After fitting the Tripleclamp air filter system the bike runs perfectly Seat of the pants.
    No spitting through the carbs and no bogging down or flat spots anywhere.

    Re sealing the front rim, just remember that there no safety bead.

    My plan is to replace the wheels with Woody's. But, no point in that until I can use wheels. I've considered re-spoking, but I'm lazy. A new wheel set also "services" the bearings. :-)
    And the hubs could be orange. :imaposer

    After shoving the brake pedal into the clutch cover from a stall nobody saw I tried my hand at Kydex. 250 degrees for a couple minutes some foam and a heat gun seems to have turned out OK. Like mentioned in H.O.W. the bolts need to be put in the cover before reinstalling due to clerances
