Finally got out for a decent test ride after some winter farklin' goodness...



I'm liking the Scotts damper a lot....75 mph, washboard with gravel over the top, one handin' the camera.

This'll do. Did about 100 miles after work, about 50/50, including a big-bike kinda-sorta friendly portion of my scrambles training loop. The damper adds stability, but when you get nearly 600 lbs up to speed, it wants to keep going straight. Momentum management is your friend.

Now, when the Rekluse gets here....well, she'll still be a big, big girl, but I really like not having to manage the clutch as I use the brake to help set up the bike for the loose corners.

30K Fuel pump service

After 30K miles of corn squeezings I figured it was time to service the fuel pump...


The filter sock was a bit larger and a pain to get mounted....I had to press it on with a vice because the I.D. was ~.4mm smaller then the O.D. of the pump motor...its on there now

The KTM kit came with everything except the larger two O-rings used to mount the pump (CJ's kit includes those)...


now I can check that off the to do list....its was a fume heavy afternoon now I just have the valves, CPR filter and Super Plush bits and its time to ride

Wicked EFI Fuel pump servicing (O-RING) I have some

Hey,

I have a few of the outer o-rings for the 990 ADVenture if some want one or two..

PM me how many and where they need to go and we'll take right care of it.
CHEAP.

I wouldn't do another one without one of these o-rings.

Last September I pretty much cooked my clutch getting the thing over Pearl Pass.
"I need to replace the plates" I thought to myself when it started slipping at the top of a really gnarly climb.

Then I promptly forgot all about it... until today I pulled out to pass a semi.. pulled the throttle and watched the RPM go up without the speed going up...

"oh yeah.. clutch plates"

just ordered a clutch rebuild kit from CJDesigns.

You should get the 0.5mm clutch oil jet from CJ...

Came home today and some big black dog must have left a box on my deck. Obviously, I had to open it and see what was inside...

Love that road. My Dad lives on Bonvue Drive just off the main road -- about halfway up to the "M". I had my 950 out there one time and decided to go up late at night. That was freaky with a stock KTM headlight. Couldn't see anything.

I was going to take some photos.. I brought a good camera with some good lenses and then when I pulled it out realized the battery for the camera was sitting on the charger @ home. Hence the crappy cel phone pics

Top of the mountain I dodged a heard of Elk.
Half way down.. I dodged 3 deer.
At the bottom I dodged a prairie dog.
It appears the wild life gets smaller as you descend...
I probably ran over some bugs after that
