Wholehearted agreement that there is a void in dealership coverage here. George's place is our best hope.

Now would you Hosers please stop butchering the Queens English!

Let's ride soon,...

Stock KTM Adv suspension is by far the best in the adventure bike class. People complain about the softly sprung forks, but they are beefy, top quality, and incredibly tunable. After some...

I chose the 3" arms. It puts the mirrors in the stock location, while giving you the option to run them wider or lower if you want. They do vibrate more than stock ones, but I like the adjustability.

Props for the Dunlop 908's

I heard so much about the 606/ 908 combo and I bought into it... Only to toast the very good feeling 606 front in half the life of the 908 rear. First time I've ever had to replace a front before a...

I have hopes for the Karoo 3 too!

Still waiting for the 150's to arrive. The North American Metzler guy said they were tooling up for early September. They don't sell many of our size so they...

True!

Reviews are very subjective, but so are definitions of steep and loose. (No disrespect Queso!) Scorps are perfect for graded dirt roads and easy offroad trails. Especially if you air down a few...

Very good road tire...

... but the Scorpion AT is useless in the dirt. Front is worse than the rear. Sure, you can ride a lot of places on them, but it's no fun when they give up and let you down!

Put a 606 on the front!

Once it's scuffed in it has a very predictable feel off road and on. Mine wears in a crazy saw tooth pattern in the center of the tread from braking on tarmac, but it still grips!

I ride...

Thanks Old Dog and everyone else for the advice! I'm going to install a rear speed sensor switch on the dash.

A far as re-setting the ABS goes; would it work to just toggle the kill switch...

Funny... but that won't help me turn the ABS back on when I hit the highway.

The clutch is using the same oil

I'm no expert, but I know that wet clutch performance is affected by the type of oil used.

On/Off toggle switch for 990 Adv ABS?

Has anyone come up with a way to manually switch the ABS on a 990 Adventure? I ride a lot of dirt with pavement stretches in between. I want to be able to turn the ABS back on without having to turn...

Trust your feelings...

All of the iterations of the 950/990 are really cool bikes. All of them are highly modifiable. In my search I rode some earlier 990's and they felt soft compared to the 950's and later 990's. I think...

Two thoughts...

Goodcat, two things come to mind:

1. There is a big difference between 08 and 09-13 in that they changed the motor to a stronger Superduke motor in 09. The 12 standard ADV got the R mapping which...

Glad you didn't get burned!

Bummer to get your hopes up and then find out it's sketchy. This doesn't reflect well on the shop. Disappointing.

I bought mine new and have a little over 4k completely trouble free miles so far....

Let's ride!

I live a mile from Atlantis and I doubled back to look at this bike the other day. I ride a 2012 990 ADV and it's such a rare sweet sight to see a stablemate in the 'hood. The bike looked clean to me...

So out of left field!

I don't know why this is posted here, but I like it!

I saw a test driver spin a Veyron braking into turn two at Laguna Seca at it's initial US press launch. Priceless moment!

KTM Orange in a small spray can...

I ordered some from Appalachian Offroad: part number 301063. It was out of stock for a while, but arrived eventually.
