Pyn, I have to ask. What's next?

Oh, and I think that KTM should buy back that bike so that they can study it.

And, I can't thank you enough for all of the wisdom you've imparted through this thread.

Had a Pyndon Syndrome also at 55000kms, exhaust valves have some buildup:



But will just try to seal the rear base (only that one leaking), will also lift front cylinder to look and add silicone around the bases as i have seen Pyndon suggest somewere in this monster thread.

Not selling through ADV Rider as I've already had my hands slapped for not 'following the rules' (So I'm a bit different, like this bike!)

I'm open to offers, outside of ADV but I'm not giving it away. I already have a few people interested, as soon as I get an offer I cannot refuse, she's gone. You can email me at lyndon@lyndonposkittracing.com but no timewasters please, genuine offers only. If all I get is half ass offers, she's staying put!

I'd trade it for one of the last 990R's if they were interested. I'd say it's the least they could do for all the LC8's I've sold from this thread :-)
