Thumb $9 solenoid: provisional success

I installed the $9 solenoid today. Pretty much a direct swap. I kept the OEM debris shield and rubber mount as those on the replacement solenoid weren't right. Beyond that, it was an easy swap in and...

I'm sure you're right. Also I can't know how often my bike's three previous owners used the starter.
My GS solenoid is subject to more heat, but it's 2x larger and 4x heavier and it's starting a...

Are there any good ones?

Yes I did see, but I also saw lots of complaints about the stock solenoids failing over and over again. I assume mine's stock as the bike came to me with only 14k miles and no receipt for a...

Question Readily available?

Wow looks like this is a very widely used solenoid, unless there are many different parts that look identical to the KTM version. Looks like it's used in many Suzuki bikes and also Yamahas, and...

Thanks - that's just what I was looking for... and seeing that it's also a Suzuki part I might find one in the US for a similar price. Will post any cross-ref. info I learn.

Thanks.
Mine looks to be c. $70 shipped. Seems like the same relay is used on lots of KTM and Husaberg bikes, but I haven't found a substitution yet that's a lower price. If I'm sure this...

Bluhduh Click click click click click click vroom

I think I have a failing starter relay on my 2004 950, but before I replace it I thought I'd ask if anyone else has had the same problem and found a different solution.

Sometimes when I press the...

Anyone know the specs for the current oil pressor sensors, the pressure below which they should turn the warning light on? Since my bike has a pressure gauge I could use that to diagnose a failing...

Thanks Ryan. I'll nudge my idle up enough so that I no longer see the warning light and try to go on longer rides where I idle less!

a) I'm riding in town a lot, and 1,500 rpm seemed like a lot of unnecessary action when I'm sitting at red lights, and
b) my habit on past bikes was to idle at...

I have FMF Q4s, so they're not quiet but probably are quieter than your pipes.

Hi all -

A friend and I recently bought '04 950 Adventures at around the same time. Once with c. 16k miles, one with c. 26k, both garage queens in very nice condition. Both have had recent oil...

Thanks for the details

Thanks HW and HX. I'll try 2" risers first and see if that's enough.

Question What height increase can stock cables/hoses accommodate?

I'm new to a 950 Adv. and I need the bars taller. I'm 6' 2" tall. The setup that worked well on my GS was about 3" taller (measured from the foot pegs) than my stock KTM setup. Does anyone know if my...
