The tear doesn't look bad at all. However, for reliability and piece of mind, I'd toss it. Recently, I tore a bit of the rubber protecting the bead when mounting a d908. It was fine for a few hundred...

Thanks for the welcoming and tip, kamanya. Aside from the bearings (and fork rollers) anything else you would check on a 950 adv with 40k miles on the clock? It's going to be a trial by fire :)

Locul - Such sweet riding! I was trying to compare the sound your bike made and mine. I think, or rather hope, it's different. Sounded like a wrench was thrown in your engine.

Works well but some grinding

I installed the KTM Twins branded Sigutech. The clutch lever rubs, but it hasn't failed after 6 month, 17,000 miles.

Aerostich Ultralight Cover, Size Medium

http://www.aerostich.com/aerostich-ultralight-bike-covers-4.html

It's pretty packable, but you may need to wait a bit to cover the mufflers as there's minimal heat protection.

Thx

Hey Max,

Thx for the info. I'll likely check out one of those KTM dealers.

I've packed a fuel pump and wp kit (sans gasket). Are you in bogota? What's your general route?
