A couple weeks ago in Baja

Fully loaded, slow speed, soft sand on the 990 is certainly attention grabbing. Picking up the pace helped a lot.

It will definitely ooze out of the neutral switch. I did mine yesterday. I just hooked a tie down to my truck and to the handle bars, then leaned the bike over enough to keep the oil from coming...

I had the same issue...

...and changed the o-ring last week. Fixed the leak.

However, I had a major problem trying to get the back bolt to start. Before even attempting to put it in, I noticed metal - that must've...

This same code started blinking on my 2012 990R this morning.

Took my youngest son camping...

We'd talked about doing it for a while, and when his older brother couldn't join us, we pared down what would have been loaded in the truck, packed the 990 and headed to the beach. I was so stoked...

I'll try this tonight, but it makes no sense that it would do anything from what I've read. I'll update tomorrow.

Oops. Left the key in/on for the afternoon

I've searched the OC for this issue, and found similar, but not the same.

2012 990 ADV R

I left the key in the ignition and turned on for several hours last weekend. When I remembered, the...

I love that place!

I've wanted to take my 990 up there, but always chicken out and go with the 450X. You've inspired me to give it a go.:clap

What about the switch disabler?

I have the BDCW relocator, but haven't done anything with the switch.

Should I?

Looks like mine.

2,800 miles and mine look the same. I'm not too concerned. Now if I could lean it out a little and gain a bit more mpg, I'd be even less concerned.:wink:

First oil change!

After 2 weeks of break-in, I did the first oil change and added the CJDesigns drain tube to make the next change much shorter (hopefully). There was a TON of crap - shavings, blue locktite, etc. in...

Question Total Noob Question...How much?

I am going to buy a 990 Adventure. Probably an R, though that brings up a whole new set of questions. Probably new.
