Well I took your thread as inspiration, and currently, my 950 went from this



to absolutely BLING shiny.

My best has been the removal of pitted anodising on the swingarms to look MIRROR like. Truly, they shine, I can even see my teeth in them.

Taking that as motivation, and because the pieces were largely all scuffed up by boot wear etc, I did the same to the:

1) Gear lever
2) Brake lever (foot of course)
3) Parts of the subframe that are ally
4) Passenger footpegs.


Seems a bit daft, because at the end of it, and VERY tiring removing of the anodising, I have bare aluminium left which I am sure will get scuffed badly.

What do I do to protect the aluminium that I have worked hard to make bare? I am in SAfrica, so brands wont mostly mean much. Thanks a ton.


So now the question is:

So now the question is:
from a gs rider: clear coat 'em. The coating won't last forever, but from the looks of your "before" picture, nothing will You KTM doods are, let us say, interesting. Fun thread. After all of the bling is done, go out and break your bikes

Get a clear urethane rattle can. It will last for a while, then, after you have banged it up, rattle can it again.

Thanks again for your great posts. Your bike looks bitchen'.

mmm thanks! This goes with my cheap ass wanting a million buck solution for ten bucks kind of mindset

Michnus, all I can say to those colours on a black bike is

Cant imagine doing swingarm, gear lever, brake lever and passenger pegs in those colours. No way hose~! Maybe I will donate it then to slummies

I find that a bit of car polish keeps the alloy looking nice and shiny.

You just reapply it when you wash your bike

perhaps i can clarify the hall of wisdom requests (and hope i haven't got it wrong)

f=ma has put together the start of a thread of links to common topics on this site inc a link to this thread. Arch has made it a sticky, indeed it is the first thread on this forum.

John asked for how submittals in the 3rd sticky thread- I pm'd him saying his message was probably now redundant due to f=ma's thread and john disagreed (though I'm still not sure why)

HOW submittals are going to be less than useful if we don't edit and build upon them. I know we can at least add or edit our posts in f=ma's thread and you may note i've been adding things as recurring issues come up on this forum, I'm not sure if we can edit HOW posts.

If you decide to add to f=ma's thread please limit it to link posts rather than just comments.

We will over time build a very useful resource in that thread and it will be under the control of the people who use it. My two cents worth.

Thanks, mouse.

FINALLY.....My New Disks!!!!

Well finally here they are! My company decided they wanted to send me to England for three weeks so the bikes been parked up and I have not had any time to post on the Forum. Nevertheless, I'm back and here they are. I took the first ride today with them and I am very impressed. They took some bedding in but they are very powerfull and give lots of feel and feedback. I like them.

Here they are it their packaging with part numbers etc:





And one of the fromts out of the packaging:



Loading the bike up on the center stand enough to get the front wheels out!!



Changing the front disks and pads:



Before and after on the front:





And fitting the rear one:



Before and after on the rear:



And some pretty pictures of her with her new stoppers on!!!







Hope the part numbers are useful to some of you. The disks cost me around $400 (USD). Not sure what the retail price is on them but it will be somewhere around there I an sure, maybe $500??.

Did 220 miles today and saw a few fellow ADV Riders out on the farm roads near Ganbury Texas. They were on BMW's but couldn't resist giving the Big Orange Crush the wave it so deserved. Naurally I gave then a good old ADV wave back

Those wavy disks look great! I want some, too.

Can you tell me which part # I need for just the left front disk as I have the one caliper set-up on my 950. Thanks Pyndon.

All the part numbers and other information is available from www.braking.com. The disk you want is KT03FLD (front left). Glad you asked this question because they are not clearly marked and I happen to have mounted mine on the wrong sides . Will change them over tonight.

Hope this helps.......
