Sorry, I already sold it to a guy from austria

Finding the right setup for the Keihin takes longer as expected, it doesnt behave as expected also Im already down to a 158 main jet and ordered some bigger idle jets now,
because its too lean at the bottom end and to rich in the middle (my expectation is that a bigger idle jet and the needle in a lower position will help, right ?)

I also got a new litte soundcheck video here, you still cant hear the real bass because the iphone microphone is just overstrained ^^

Hey guys, the carburetor setup is done so far !
Im now running a 168 main jet and a OBDTP needle at the 3. clip from the top. Idle jet is a 45 and its running pretty good as I think ^^

Now I have space left on the handlebar again and used it to mount my new Garmin GPSmap 278 and my IMO 100 R, looks pretty cool eh ?






At the next weekend Im going to mount new Michelin T63 for street use and get the exhaust stuffed with fresh silent sport wool.
In the middle of August me and a friend (on a freshly bought 990 Adventure) are going to make a trip to austria and also visit the KTM Days in Spielberg

What else ... my shoulder is getting a bit better, but it will take a lot more time for full rehab, it still hurts every day
I even had a bone broken and nobody from the hospital crew noticed it

Hiho Cockpit is done, new (used) Michelin T63 put on, Plasti-dipped the rims, exhaust stuffed, new brake fluid and much more ...

Filled with 44 litres of fuel, the bike accelerates as fast as a mapped 690 Enduro R
And it also just takes 5 litres of fuel per 100km as my test ride just showed






After just 150km the rear tyre went flat due to a screw in it
Ok... anyway... I ordered a new tube and in a month Ill be riding in austria with the bike

Well... some more news about my bike... We did a 2100km trip to austria/italy 2 weeks ago (pics will follow in the next weeks)

The camshaft drive chain has lengthened a lot and started cutting the cylinder case I noticed it because there were a lot of non-magnetic particles in the micro filter ...
Im now waiting for a new chain + grinders and she will be fine again

If your goal is the best carburetor setup, do not use a lambda sensor.

Why not start another thread on this subject? I'd be interested.

On our tour through austria the bike made an average of 58 miles per gallon which is 4 litres /100km, pretty good eh
With full tanks this would give me a coverage of over 1000km

Bought a charger / balancer for my LiFePo battery



After our tour through austria the oil filter didnt look to good, but there were no magnetic parts on the screws.



So I had to find out from where the particles came and eventually found the reason.
The timing chain seemed to be worn out and too long, so it slid on the cylinder head case



At the weekend Im going to mount a new timing chain and itll hopefully be ok again.

During the winter season I want to powdercoat some parts and do some changes on the electrical system under the front mask.

The bike is complete again and runs good, hopefully all problems are gone now
I just had some issues with a lieaking micro filter cover and had to take it off 3 times



Im going to give the side stand a fresh paintjob in black next weekend. Maybe its a alternative to powdercoating it.
Aaaannnddd.... I bought a new high Rally seat on eBay today

How is the plasti dip holding up on the wheels? Love that stuff. How'd you get around the spoke nipples?

If you dont change your tires, its fine But after every change it has to be renewed ...
I taped the tyre and the spoke nipples with normal painter tape und cutted it off afterwards.
I wont use PlastiDip again - during the winter Ill get the rims powdercoated ...

My new high seat arrived this week In fact its 14 years old now






Now I just have this issue that my tank seems to sit to far back
I cant push the seat so far forward to fit the screw ...
I already tried different positions of the tank holders in the front, but it doesnt fit :(
My old seat fits because its modified with a quick lock and sits a bit more back ...
Maybe anyone got an idea here ? Its an adventure tank,
but the 2000 rallies got the same setup, so it must fit anyhow
