I swapped to a 16/47 combo while working today-

I really was working - dont look at the computer in the back ground (it just looks like ADV )

But I noticed this -


Is it condensation from very cold nights and only a few miles to work and no burn off ? No foam in the oil tank
Supposed to head out for a few days but need to get this sorted, any thoughts ?

Hey xcflyn. That is what my window does on cold mornings with short ride times. I'll bet your ok. I posted this same question awhile back and was reassured by multiple inmates. No issues, and goes away when it runs for awhile or weather warms up.

Clear cover and cold weather.... It's that time of year for a CJD reminder.

WARM those bikes up and don't be over alarmed if you see some slime on the window. Short drives will not burn off the condensation fast enough as the temps cool down. Give a good ride, 45 min - 1 hr before you get concerned and rip into a Water pump job.

All bikes have condensation build up, but now you can see it. Good and bad thing with this cover.

Bar risers, changed mirrors, removed license plate bracket/rear side reflectors. Adjust all handlebar controls, ponder why KTM made that brake pedal so damn small.

I dropped my 300 off a 7 foot high rock trying to nail a narrow slot to hit a switchback,bounced off some manzanita and flew off into a big hole full of snow and leaves/sticks on my head. That's what I get for trying to hang with some ex-isde guys as they make their own trail through the woods.

Today I installed my new rear rack from www.motooverland.com
Thanks Dave!
Before installation on the bike, I decided to do some engraving on the CNC mill with a 1/16" solid carbide ball nose end mill, about .010" / .015" depth. Clear coat is added when machining is finished.
I'm happy with it...and ready to add some scratches loll
