MSRider was always on a black and green bike with black jacket with green trim (K) from what I remember... trying hard to remember who else was there.

You can read about it all here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=486874

RezSailor was on the red KLR. Ley (pronounced Lee, from Columbus "Neverenough") was on the other red KLR.

Tophy, Roy, Wolfy, Arden, BW's, Peaches, Desoto and me were the rest.

Ran the bike for 50 miles on the dyno. It sounded great! He also redid the quickshifter settings which now works very well. You've seen the dyno chart I posted on Instagram but I will post it up here since some here don't have IG.

Bike started off with only 155 hp 74 torq on its ecu flash done locally. I never felt it was terribly slow but I rode out of my skin on it numerous occasions to get the results I got. After Livengood dyno tune its up to 170 hp 81 torq. And the chart shows the smooth power delivery. He actually took some power of of it in that mid area so I could ride it. He told me if he'd a went real strong there it would have been a bear to ride with no traction control. It's the real deal now. Only thing I could have done different is add a full exhaust system $$ (currentky only a slip on w stock TI header) and use race gas. I opted for non ethanol pump premium gas. If I had done the latter two it would have easily went over 180 hp.

The red line is Livengood work, blue line is the local ecu flash.


Our mountain trip was fun. I logged 925 miles on the tenere while there. Wife managed about 400 on back. Had some great weather except one day. Next trip up will probably be July 4th weekend. June schedule is stacked, head to. Road Atlanta June 5-8 for cycle jam round then Barber June 28-29. Road Atlanta will be interesting I have not been there since 09.

Wish I could head up this weekend with you but my uncle died and his funeral is Friday plus RA being so close makes it not doable. Have a safe trip and venture off road as much as possible I rode some good stuff up there last week.
Sorry about your uncle. Looks like I'm going to stick around J'town because the weather is looking pretty wet up there for the next 2-3 days. Glad you got the bike tuned and setup now to where you can work with it. I know that was a relief of sorts. Good luck with the upcoming race

anyone on here have a stock ktm 990 windscreen they want to sell or at least let me try out? I've got a ktm tour screen and a moose screen and of course I'm thinking I'd like something in between. Got one I can try out?

Not me, Anti. I hate I missed that ride, that looked like a blast. I think we made it the week after that ride with DQ, Eeore, and my son Derrick.

Great video BTW, BWs.

That is an astute observation

I've been thinking about downsizing, but with an upcoming move and not knowing 100% what the future holds as far as the type of riding I'll be doing, my wife wisely advised me to not change bikes right now. For once, I listened.

Nupe. Me and Peaches still have the same bikes.
I remember that Onward ride, temp was in the 30s that day. They had the best tamales there ever was. Hate they changed that store from the way it was back then.

Yeah that is exactly why I down sized from the FZ it just didn't fit my type of riding. I just ordered Barkbusters for the 500X, I'm down to a skid plate and more agressive tires. Altho I have seen a set of 009 Ravens after a tire groover was used on them and I kind of like the look of them. I know I won't use the same tires as is on it they are just to soft.
