Shucks I'm out. Won't be back in time. On another note, a KTM hub is about the easiest thing you can lace up. I think it took about 15 min to lace it, and about 10 min to true it. Love this bike.

Bruno, did your excel split where the rim was welded together?

Sunday

Doubt I will make it, wrenching on the -510, new water pump, Samco hoses, New C/S gear (-1) wiring my 62CSX because the 60 CSX has a different wire. Have a spun nut in the rear subfame and can not get the side sheild off. Any suggestions.

May join the BMWTCD club for breakfast at BMWMCSEM, some guys may take a dirt ride after, perhaps towards Dexter, via Joy Road

Bruno has a KTM dishwasher in his garage. It's orange and good for cleaning.

Yeah, that's where it split. It was a DID wheel, OE on the 950 Super Enduro.

Impact wrench while side loading the bolt usually works.

Not yet Bruno, but I'm working on it, saving cash little by little every day... I'm pretty much set on getting a '05.5 or '06 950s, I have read too many horror stories about the FI, even in later models, that I'm completely turned off by the 990. Plus, I know carbs, so if I'm stuck in the middle of nowhere (my favorite place), I'd rather deal with a carbed system instead of the FI.

I might be wrong, but it seems to be the right choice for me, what do you guys think?

The carbs on my 950 were a pita to get right, surging, lean spots, etc.

The FI on my 690 was a mess, snatchy, flame-outs, etc.

They both required time and effort to get right. Once right, there's no question that FI way outperforms carbs. Much more precise metering, improved throttle response, cold-start enrichment, altitude compensation, tuneability, etc.

The FI on the 500 is spot-on, and the throttle response is nothing short of awesome with none of the temperament issues of the carbed 530's.

From a complexity standpoint, yes one could argue that a carbed sys has fewer components and is therefore less susceptible to failure and easier to field service.

Personally, i'm a fan of FI. I'm comfortable working with it. My experience has proved that if the fuel and injector[s] are kept clean the systems are reliable.
