I like having spare parts on hand, but Dang .
I just bought a used tail light off ebay for $20. It's for an '04 Adventure, but they look identical on the fiche even though they have a different p/n. The Adv part is $120 for some reason.

Yep! Use the hot cams kit. Very happy with it.

Did mine at 20K, all four exhaust were tight, buy only slighty.

And the duration you go between checks will depend a lot on how you ride.

I just buy a one step thinner shim when the gap goes too small. After 113 kkm and two motors I have learned:
  • clearance hardly changes providing the motor operating temperature is stable (nowadays my 2009 990 motor never sees anything but four bars on the panel) also with plenty high load on low and high rpms at low speed and very high ambient temperatures
  • intake valve clearances havent changed at all after 40000 km
  • all four exhaust valves needed one step thinner shim after 40000 km
  • my old 2006 950 motor was another animal, much more temperature variations and need to reshim both intakes and exhausts after each season of about 20000 km

Anyone with a Safari Tank have clearance issues between the brace and the front tire? I have the flat bar style brace and even with a short mt21 front, it caught and twisted the brace at full compression.

I modified it a little for more clearance. Will test ride and verify a fix at some point. I'm curious if others have had this trouble.

Thanks

Yes I have the flat brace & notice that it hits sometimes on a hard landing wheel stand. The tube one broke & was pretty crappy. Would like to see the photos of your mods to the brace.

Guy that I ride with once in a while also complains about the lack of clearance.

It stands out quite a but more than the old tube type bracket that I have on mine. Tube type has no clearance problems.

What is this diode actually for? It is in the cowling, and part number 11 on the parts fiche.

One of the wires going into it broke; I only noticed that my indicators stopped working. I have repaired the wire, but now the indicators don't flash, just a constant light. I thought diodes are just like a one-way directional valve for the current, but wondering if it has something to do with the flashing?...

Pretty Much, they tend to go two ways...ohms meter...they break so no flow, they open so flow both ways.

Looking at the SE C diagram...can only see two diodes....one diode is to do with return for the gear sensor switch and tuther clutch switch...should be nout to do with indicators....check flasher relay.

I received the used Adv tail light yesterday and it is identical to the SE (and SM) piece. Still can't understand why the Adv piece is $40 more (OEM) than the others.

I also don't understand why KTM didn't provide a lens that screws on, rather than making it a whole sub-assembly. There's not much room to snake your hand in to either replace a bulb or remove the unit. Having younger grand-kids is helpful

Walter,
I added a 1/2" thick piece of foam to the existing top foam on the lens to keep it from shaking & jarring on rough trails
