Wow, just joined in the big Kato family. Read the first 6 pages of this thread and then the last. (there is a lot !)
Good luck with the Dakar, what a big apple you are biting into. I am in awe !
I just got a 03 950 Adv S. It needs a bit of TLC but is basicly ok. Although reading one of your last post re oil leak, mine is doing same. Hope it is just oil sensor.
I have been a dirt rider many years ago (Montessa etc) then road mostly Italian Ducati etc, but for the last 7 years Aprilia v twin road riding. (also DR400 Yamy then KTM 450 EXC for dirt)
One thing I am curious about, the 950 vibrates a lot more than my Tuono thru the revs. The Kato is fairly stock and is going in for valve check and throttle balance etc. Can I expect to get it relativley smooth?
I may get a jet kit installed to. I had a JD kit for the 450. Is this the brand of kit I should get for the 950? She pops quite a bit on the decel. Oh it has KTM slip ons by Gualdi (Any good?)
I also have no low fuel light. Any suggestions?
I promise I will take some pics of the bike and post in proper threads from now on. I just got carried away with this thread!
Cheers, and I am sure I will be here for some time. Love the bike so far :)
