Have you bridged the clutch switch or gear sensors , think if you have it may
Lock the ecu into thinking your changing gear or in a lower gear and cut power

UPDATE:

EPIC FAIL...

Its my own fault and it started when I bought the engine. The seller has always told me that the engine was an RC8R from 09. That wasnt complete true. Ive rechecked the engine nr at 2 places. Which gives me this:2009 RC8

Huge balls.

That would explin the horsepower and the probably the weird power band. Remember this bike got the RC8R map with the RC8R bazzaz unit. That is just so boring...

What will i do. Well money is a bit tight now as im prepping my new to me, 2013 KTM 350 SXF to enduro. I should be able to run the complete Enduro series next year. That just sadly means that i cant afford an RC8R engine for now. Though on the other hand my mission will be that next year at this time i should have an RC8R engine and an 1190 adv gearbox.
To sum it up, i havent done anything wrong powerwise, so an RC8R should perform like hell. Though i never got satisfied with the RC8 gearbox. Now i got a chance to correct this. Just need to find out if the engine will accept the ADV 1190 gearbox.

Hope yo all are doing fine and having a great time. Looking forward to see what happens when the 1190 Adv hit the US market. Going to be CRAZY

Locul, what size rear tire did you run when it was getting eaten by the chain? Thanks!

SuperDuke 180 will get eaten a bit. But i has stopped as ive tightened the chain a tad. It works very good, but im thinking of the 19/17 solution again.

If the RC8 is built like the LC8 is, it will take the adv gearbox.
IIRC, it was Kamanya who put his 950 adv gears in his 990 duke motor.

That is good infomation.

Ive just done the microfiche looking through all the gearing numbers. That will of course not tell me that it Works straight out of the box, but im confident that the KTM 1190 Adv gearing will go straight into the RC8R.

Though ive been searching alongside what i should do with this RC8 engine ive mounted. In a small brainfart i thought i could drop some parts into it from a RC8R(crank, piston, rods,etc...). It would actually make sense since im splitting the case anyway to Mount the Adv gearing. I knew the parts were expensive and would use some ebay magic. Problem is that these parts dont flow around like the RC8 and LC8. So im seeking another engine and would be going for the dual ignition. This wont be happening over night. But the goal is set and im sure it will be a fun ride to.

Since nothing is coming from my part regarding RC8 ive put my 350 through stupid stuff.

Slight knowhow update for the interested.

Im still looking for the engine. RC8R is chosen regarding economy and the dual spark for better combustion and the heavyer crank. I think the crank will make it a better touring machine(i hope).
Though i still had to figure out the gearing. Ive looked through the parts from an 950/990 adv gearing vs the parts from an RC8(r). Im sure they wont fit.
In the other hand the 1190 Adv and RC8R looks similar.
RC8(R) T1


1190 Adv T1


RC8(R) T2


1190 Adv T2


This will ofcourse not be 100% sure, but im confidient that it can be worked out.

waiting for Dakar to start...

Plastic

Lil offtopic, but how's that plastic welded tank doing so far?
No issues, no leaks, have you dropped the bike - no cracks?
Did you cover the welds with additional epoxy and resin for
more strength.

Planning to use SE tank on my build and widen it to fit the frame.
To do that I need to cut the tank in half and try to weld with
same method as your tank was done. Am I overdoing it?

Br.,
Peeter

Hi Locul,

Been meening to ask you, does the rear cam cover still come off with the engine in the frame, can you do a valve adjustment on the rear cyllinder?
Also, do you recon a high exhaust would be possible with clearance to both the tank and rear cylinder / frame?

I'm in the market for an engine too now :-)
