Every 990 owner should know about the fuel filters...

Bartek recently went to Baja, and probably picked up some dirty fuel.

I had specifically reminded the Osos about fuel filters in one of the pre-trip emails.
Itís a common issue with 990s and those parts are hard to find on the trail.

And, heís done! Time to hit the road again.

By the way, Lica rode his 990 from BC to Ushuaia and back and loved it.

He just finished a rebuild of the bike and plans to ship it to Africa, ride up to Romania, and then keep the bike in Europe for future travels.
Because he bought a new 990 (Baja edition) to keep in Canada.

It's too bad you're having trouble with your bike, but I'm surprised you expected to get sympathy in Orange Crush.

Have you not been in the OC before?
OSO LOCO!! osoooo!

Oso bored? you can find the rest of our ride reports HERE
make stupid your favorite!
