Got it all working again after breaking some corroded wires by the starter solenoid, only took from 9:30am through to around 2:30pm to find and fix the problem, just the amount of time I was going to spend riding.

Crap!

Haven't had a chance to see where it is coming from.

The canisterectomy creates space in the left side fairing. I use the space vacated by the charcoal canister to hold a front tube and tire repair kit.

Unfortunately, there is a screw well and tower right in the middle of the opening:


I cut the well on the inside cover and tower on the inside of the fairing, as well as the two ribs that hold the canister in place.




This is what the opening looks like without the well and tower:


the bag with the tube and repair kit like this under the inside cover:


To get it in place, just slide it in through the opening:


The tube tucks into place nice and tight:


Used the KTM tool bag for the rear tube:


This one fits nicely in the space inside the right fairing:

That would be my guess. ..I couldnt source a metric o-ring on the day so used the next thickness up, from NAPA, and backed it up by applying Permatex gasket maker to the flat face...no leaks yet....

Not my idea so I can't take the credit. Sorry, don't remember who it was who posted this first.

Wrapped the glove box in some 3M carbon fiber decal. http://www.amazon.com/Black-3M-DI-NO.../dp/B0062A7M2G

I think it turned out awesome. One sheet 24" x 12" was literally just enough material to get the job done. I ended up applying it dry and used a heat gun to form it where necessary.

Before


After (sorry not so great cell phone pic)

oil change

did my first oil change on the beast which was fairly easy since i have the cj hose thingy however i forgo changing the screen inside the port hose right next to the drain plug since removing the crash bars and my left tank seems like a lot of work. I know for a fact that it hasn't been checked in the last oil change either so would advise me to go ahead and do it or it doesn't matter? ( i haven't put new oil in it yet).
Also i added too much water to my coolant reservoir, do i need to drain it out or is it something that will occur naturally?
thanks in advance for the help.
