Bought it a friend due to the imminent release of the F650GSPD! I'm 7000 miles from home right now, but my buddy said they got along just fine when he rolled it in there for me,

In the last two weeks I've:

Pulled the EPS
Pulled the SAS
Installed a set of used Wings Exhaust from Powercell
Rejetted with X-bikes jetting
Replaced rear spring for my lighter weight
Replaced front springs for my lighter weight
Had my seat modified so it's more comfortable
Fixed a breaking windscreen
Wired in my heated vest controller

What's that mean? I loooove my KTM

Ingenious... I'm stealing your method when I change my fluids. I'd been wondering how to lift the front end and THAT is how!

Why a coolant flush and change on such a new bike? Just curious, mine's the same vintage and runs warmer than I would like, especially during the summer.

Mine has 325 miles on it, coolant will be flushed at 600 mile change then again at 2k mark.
Mine runs hot, but I have Akrapovik cans on the way to eliminate some of the heat. The fan kicks on at 70 degrees outside, temp stays consistent, but really normal traffic and the fan at 70 outside temp.
My last bike an original 04 950 did the same, ran great with the new exhaust, I'm expecting the same results.

Today i stole EZ300's idea of putting my FZ1 on the headlight mount.

This picture was after i got it setup and was testing with the multi meter to make sure i hooked it up right.



And this one is all finished just missing the cover over it at the moment.



I am pretty happy with it so far. it will make wiring all the crap up super easy.

Installed a poor man's GPS. An iPhone 4S, MotionX GPS app, a LifeProof case with bar mount, and a new USB port added to switched power. Good to go!

I needed to burp it because I saw the engine temp max out in stopped traffic last summer.

There was also reports of left over casting sand in some bikes, so I figured that I would flush out the system and replace the coolant with "lowtox" coolant- reported to lower temps better than standard coolant.
