Well, I'm embarassed to admit that it was the very common water pump failure. I didn't have any of the other symptoms though. But I think the image below is self explanatory.... Fortunately, I have a spare fuel pump and water pump kit with me. I don't have any tools here at my friends house, but there is a KTM shop in town that is very helpful, so I'll just take in the right side engine plate and let them install the new one.

Not necessarily, are you loosing coolant? Moisture that naturally acours in the engine just condences on the coolest parts, and that give gunk....

Same happens on air/oil cooled motors, but also could well be an indication of WP seal/shaft on its way out.

You can see my post above. I was loosing a lot of coolant. 1 quart in 900 miles.

For reference, I also have a 990 Adventure that I put 50K on, never had a WP failure on it. The clutch stays dry with exception for a few drops of motor oil, so it's definitely not normal on these LC8 motors. What threw me was I didn't have any other symptoms.

Yeh sorry didn't read that bit,

Personally think to many unnecessary changes due to a bit of emulation, which is normal.

The latest shafts are a gun blue colour and the seal is grey, if your not changing the bearings it can be done easily enough in the field...no special tools needed.

Don't bother taking the impeller off before removing the case, once its off you can just undo the bolt with a flat blade on the back of the shaft. Take the rear lip off and knock the shaft out and the other clip will push the seal out. Once the shaft is out you can knock the shaft out of the impeller, that's if it didn't come off easily earlier.

Pos?

I have a Hyde bash thingy made out of plastic (ABS) in the rar it's supported by 2 very flimsy looking 2mm bent pieces of flat bar with captive nuts.
It's pushed forward by the center stand so that these "support are all bent outta shape and it's also deformed around the oil tank bolts(by being pushed forwards.
What to do?

Throw it away. I had a Hyde bash plate on my new 500 and it shattered on the first ride. I don't know how they can stay in business.

Get a hold of Mike at info@mvmotoventure.ca. He's on the board here, but I've forgotten his user name. I just installed one of his skid plates on my SE last night. Nice product, good fit, no risk of oil cooler and rad damage. Pleasure to do business with, too.

Hola.....

Ok...currently have the Facet mounted to the back of my airbox....

Going to lose the airbox (rottweiler) but want to keep the Facet in the same position.

Has anyone come us with a workable mount for that spot?


Thanks

Hey, V2, I was looking for these exact photos over on KTMTalk and they're all gone. It was a beautiful spread. What happened?
