Thumb Trailer In a Bag

Hey

I have the trailer in a bag and like it pretty well. It does all you could ask: Tows well, stong enough for my KTM 950 and has the advantage of being easy to dissasemble so that it presents...

FMF Q's here

I shopped a bit and bought the black Q's (not titanium). It seems to me that there is little you can do that will provide significant power gains on this bike that won't reduce reliablity or...

Mine did that too

Turned out that I was just idling it too slow. Most of the time it will idle around 1000 rpm except after the conditions you describe - hot, soak, then taking off again. It would die at traffic...

Alloy Wheels for the Adventure?

Hey - can't seem to find any reference to alloy wheels on a 950 Adventure. I'm wanting to go 19/17 and it SEEMS like alloys would solve all the typical problems: Tubless would be easy, they'd be...
