Picked it up from 3 Bros in OC..fixed my clutch and gave me an oil change. Price was very good and with all the orange bikes in the shop I was very happy my bike would be with friends.. +1 for Gustavo

Got the orange high fender at home..that will be a job i think i can handle!

At the tree-cycle location, some guy came over and took a couple pictures while I was unloading. We had a nice chat about bikes for a few minutes.

Just wanted to thank ^^ BigNastybrp ^^ for offering up for sale a spare Hammerhead shifter he had laying around, within minutes of it being mentioned in my previous post.

Seems like they're out of production at the moment (and therefore rarer than rocking horse shit), so this was very greatly appreciated.

Classic Inmate stuff!

Cheers,


Michael

How much do those graphics go for, if you don't mind me asking. Something like that works for me to cover up all the scratches on my bike.

So there you go.

Thanks for all the superb information, inspiration and camaraderie. It makes me proud not only to be a fellow Inmate, but also to now have acquired your taste for / obsession with the Orange Crush.


Cheers,



Michael

For a full big bike custom set (including front fender decals), designed and printed, you're looking at around £175-200 GBP ($280-320 USD), plus shipping (which isn't much). His off-the-shelf liveries are cheaper, but still wicked smart. Bikes with smaller surface areas to be covered cost less too.

Mine's a bit of a challenge because Kriega colors are black, white and grey and the decals don't wrap around the edges of the panels, so there'll be orange showing around the edges of each one. So Crispy's working on a few options to bring the orange in and make it look more like a paint job, than stickers.

Regardless, I still think it stacks up pretty well compared to a wrap, which would run around $500, plus design and shipping your plastics off if you don't happen to live nearby someone good.


Cheers,


Michael

Sort of a noob question ...from a KTM noob...my water pump decided to let go and now I have the awesome yellow colored oil behind the clutch cover. I suspect this is from my oil and water mixing.

Of course I am doing a full fluid change when I do my pump but should I do a small flush first? Maybe run oil through for only a few hundred miles to get that crap out of the system? The oil in the tank actually looks perfectly fine.
