Anyone know what's the O.D. of that SAS hose connector on air box?

edit: or what size vacuum rubber cap fits there 1/2", 3/8"..?

Thank you!

Ever think about writing tech manuals for a living?? Fantastic job. If only the KTM CDs were as plain and straight forward.

I finally got around to removing the SAS on my 990, I don't know why I didn't do it sooner.
I should have read this thread before I started as I didn't think about the resistor to fool the ECU when the valve wiring has been disconnected. I'm off to the auto sparky to find one and get rid of that pesky FI fault code.

Pictures are worth 1000 words. I can't tell you how long I looked at it all before I started. All I did was take pictures, tahoeacr and fasteddy760 figured it all out.

Just did the sas removal and it was pretty easy. Hardest part was to install front cylinder plate. I didn't remove air filter box so I think you better have gynecologist fingers to do this.
Screw marked with red arrow were PITA to remove. Did remove all screws of oil tank and push it as forward as it goes (blue arrow).
Oil return hose were the one that was blocking the most. I wasn't able to see where and how it was attached from the middle to move it further away (yellow arrow).

I just completed this entire procedure: Canisterectomy, SAS removal w/ block-off plates, resistors to fool the ECU, da woiks. I connected the intakes, using the original fittings and a short length of discarded hose . . . never even tried it with the intake holes blocked with bolts.

Yes, the front cylinder's block-off plate is a PITA to install. I removed all the bolts that hold both the oil tank and the radiator, so I could moved them out of the way (just enough) to reach both block-off-plates bolts using a u-joint w/socket.

Also just replaced chain and sprockets, went to a 16T up front.

The bike is transformed: Better throttle response, yet better control at low speeds, runs smoother. It's a happy bike.

Thanks for such a great post.

I'm thinking of doing this mod the next time I rip into the bike for an oil change. I just have a few questions. Will doing this help smooth out my off idle throttle response? How long can i expect it to take to do the mods if I take my time and get it all right the first time? Can someone post links for the block off plates and the electrical connectors needed to do the conversion? Thanks for such a great write up I wouldn't even consider trying this if it weren't for such a great tutorial.

This is a great write up on the "resistor tri.ck". I ordered mine from Eagle Day aswell.
I got my balnking plates from KTMTwins.

Excellent write up but it's got me confused (doesn't take much).

My 2007 990 doesn't have all the canister stuff in the fairing ...... I didn't remove it - and it aint there

Is this something that's missing from UK bikes?

I would figure that all Euro bikes would be the same so it should be there. If it's not then someone along the line has removed it. My best guess at least.

I think it has to do mainly with U.S. spec bikes . Our bikes get cleaned up for Kalifornia so they can weigh more, run worse and actually pollute more so someone can feel better about themselves for having mandated more emissions equipment.

Euro bikes don't have canister. You can skip that part and start from SAS removal on Katooms excellent writeup...

Hello!

after removing SAS on a euro spec 990 seems that now i 've got a hesitation in 3000-4000 too. In the first post that was due to sas removing or the cannister? Katoom119 can you be a little more spacific (photos if that's possible) what did you to remedy it?
