I turned them 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn but didn't feel any resistance or stop so I returned them to where they were. Seems to me these should be fully locked out in one direction or another. Should these be turned all the way "counter clockwise" (orientation on your back looking up) until some sort of stop to be fully open? I didn't see any sort of inline "one way" valve that you would turn 45 degrees to open or close.

What say ye?
Sorry for all the dumbass ?'s...

Yes. Open counter clockwise.

The big KTM 990 SMT thread -- riders check in w/ photo!

So how did everyone install their wings, specifically the one bolt on the brake side that mounts the exhaust to the midpipe? It seems the midpipe curves too sharply to fit any tool into the Allen head bolt provided.

What gives?

Here's a few pics of install

How I got the front cylinder SAS plate off

I snugged that bolt up first with the silencer turned where i could get to it.... then rotated the silencer into final position to tighten the other two bolts.

400 miles over 10 hrs today. Got to my dad's house and just happened to look at the engine and noticed the steel braided oil line was a light color of brown and dusty. Upon closer inspection I noticed there is no oil in the window of oil tank. But there is no residue or anything on the skid plate bottom. Where did my oil go? If the valves are out of adjustment will it burn oil?

Valves wont burn oil unless your valve seats are worn. Then after you turn the bike off, the oil in the head will seep down past the valve seals into the combustion chamber and you will get a nice healthy black PUFF when you start.

Check your oil line, maybe it loosened up and leaked out while riding! If your tank is empty that means you leaked around 3 liters. That doesn't "vanish" or burn off LOL that LEAKS.

Good idea. I also forgot to place the steel spacer in the exhaust hangers... oh well, they are solid and I really dont want to strip the bike down again.

A couple observations for what it's worth:

The box of stock parts I removed weighs almost 30lbs.

The engine is 100x smoother now, no more shakes below 3000. Not sure if it is related to the SAS system or stock exhaust.

I turned the O2 sensor back on while still using Map #15 Kev's Performance map. The Jerky throttle has returned, but I will run it for a hundred miles or so and see how it feels.

The charcoal canister is surprisingly heavy! Lots of room in the tail now for tire repair kit, etc.

Instead of plugging the SAS system throttle bodies separately, I used the existing route to the charcoal canister and just trimmed it short and placed a SS bolt in the line to plug it up, tucked neatly under the front seat/tank area.

Overall very satisfied!

Lou
