Help - Moto Problem in Nicaragua!!!

Hi!

I need some help in Nicaragua!

Well I have had my first serious problem in over 70,000 miles with two 990 Adventures. The part of the rear pipe that the Lambda sensor is mounted has broken off, plus that part of the pipe has a split. The moto is a 2010 990 Adventure. I plan to remove the pipe tomorrow and a local shop will weld it. Successfully I hope!

What has been y'alls methods to repair this? If I were in the States, I would simply order a new one and I will when I get back there in April. But for now, I have got to get it repaired some way. We are on the way to Panama.

What is the easiest and fastest way to remove the rear pipe? I am assuming once the rear wheel, muffler and maybe the shock is removed that I will have the necessary clearance.

Looking for advise and especially first hand experience. THANKS!

I will cross post this to the 1190/1290- site since many of those folks moved up from 990s.

I had an exhaust crack apart after the rear cylinder (yes shock off to remove), had a local weld it up and it lasted for another 20k. No biggie

Just make sure he welds it EXACTLY lined up or it will add stress somewhere else on the pipe and will fatigue a new location. Make sense?

Thanks! I will be taking it off tomorrow to be welded. Yes, I think it is the o2 sensor, but KTM calls it a Lambda Sensor in their Part Fiche.

Also as just a suggestion.....if you can find it or something like this, it will get you by in a pinch till you can get things repaired right. On my longer trips I carry High heat weld, Water Weld, and Quick weld JB....packs very small

Envious of your trip and wishing I was doing something like it right now

I have some JB Weld with me, but but is the regular kind. I read your stuff on the 1190 board all the time. When will you be retired?

They say its not recommended but Reg JB will also work on the exhaust. Just not ideal.....I used some on my log splitter exhaust (all I had handy) 3 yrs ago. Still holding.....

Man I wish it was today but I am sure the wife thinks NEVER is my retirement date. I will be looking for your ride report......and wishing.

Safe travels

I had my front exhaust pipe crack

Got it welded. Lasts 50k kms till now, almost as much as the factoty new item. So it may be longer lasting than the OEM parts.
Cheers.

One Thread in the correct Forum is all that is needed.

Thanks.

I am looking for it now on the KTM Manuel I have on my computer. But, does anyone know where the Lambda/o2 sensor plugs into the wiring harness? The part that is broken off is barely larger than the sensor and I expect that it is going to be difficult to remove. Getting the sensor out with the broken off piece will probably make it more easier to separate. Thanks!

Make sure your welder knows what he's doing and you should be okay. Plenty of talented welders in Nic.
