Googlemaps shows restricted/private roads from Laughlin to Primm to Sandy Valley to Pahrump. I see a road that runs along the railroad tracks up to Primm. Any local info on said roads? Also, what...

Old thread revival

Doesn't look like the Sertao is listed in the 2015 BMW line up. Any idea if they plan to release one?

Speed pick up sensor routing?

I realize this thread is over a year old, but thought I'd try and add to the knowledge base. My speedo went bad and the dealer first replaced the instrument cluster (not the problem), and then the...

Just trying to add to the knowledge base

My speedo went out, but the rest of the dash was working. Took it to the dealer and they called KTM, who had them replace the instrument cluster. That wasn't the problem though (3 week wait). KTM...

Why do Osos need bear spray?

Aren't they family?

Great ride report. Makes me realize how small of a percentage of its full potential I use my 990R for.

Ride report?

Was just in Big Bend, and can see how a clutch could take a beating.

On the flea bay. A good source for what things actually sell for. SMTs were not a great seller, so despite being rare they don't/didn't move fast.

Cool bikes. Sometimes I think about putting...

Thanks OC!

The small caps are easy to get out. Just slipped a fingernail under it and it came off.

The holes are tapped for an M6, and the M6x25 worked well for mounting my new Ram mouth. I did have to...

What size/TPI for Tapped holes in triple clamp?

My 2012 990R has two tapped holes in the top triple clamp. There are small black plugs capping them, and I only noticed them because I was mounting my GPS.

What size or tpi are these, and are...

Easy job, one you locate acc2. Regular bladed electrical connectors for 22 gauge wire worked perfectly.

Thanks to all for the write ups and photos!:clap

Scorps do this

My 2012 R does this. Tuning suspension just changes speeds where is wobbles.

Tire could be out of round, or balance. Some have had issues with rim strip.

Ok, Google mapped this and it looks cool, but what should I expect roadwise? It seems to dead end in the middle of the refuge. Is there a point you recommend to jump off and keep heading east?

Ask them about an updated 990R!

All this talk about 700-800cc twins (to me) is bizarre. The 990 has the power, is light (for it's CC), and has an awesome suspension. Ask KTM about an updated version to compete with the BMW F800GS...

just bought a new 2012 R

Paid 12.5K OTD. Bike price was 11.4K before fees.

They only go one way in value and dealers should be looking to move disco'd inventory.

Aux fan is nice

And easy to install. Plug and play. I am mixed on skid. Stock is ok for tarmac. If you hammer it like the Osos the BDCW is necessary.
