I wanted to eliminate the SDS from the bike (sudden death syndrome), but there were no intake leaks, so If the 2nd clip & TPS (was at 0.45V with 0% throttle) doesn't cure it, then I don't know what else to do..
Are you running 3rd clip on front & 2nd clip in the back. Hmm. Never thought about something like that. I went to 2nd on both and my 950 seems very crisp now. MPG increased too.

I was running 3rd clip on both carbs, and reverted back to 2nd clip on both carbs now.

My Bad. I misread your post.
2nd clip feels really good on my bike.

Shed 15.5 pounds today...

Pretty simple task, started by removing 22 pounds of stuff...



Then installed the new Remus Y pipe...



Then slapped on the Ti exhust...



Checked the alignment...



Put it back together...



And then fired it up. Wow, this thing is much louder than the stock set-up!!! Not sure it will be overly offesive, but it is noticeable.

Scale says it all. I got my most-accurate NASA approved scale out (I am sure it's the same one they used when they sent those men to the moon) and checked the before and after mass:

Before 22 pounds...



And all of the replacement parts (7.5 pounds)...



The test ride up the hill was showed it wasn't that loud under power (still you could clearly hear it over the stock system) and *maybe* had a little more low-end grunt. Tough to say if it did much to the top end for normal street riding (at least that I would notice).

Hopeffully I'll get the ESB storage box this week to put on the other side. Hopefully...

Love the look of polished ceramic coated headers, I've done it to two previous KTM's but haven't done it to the Adv, yet, post another photo when you've put them back on please.

Ceramic coated pipe looks great, I have done that to several of my 2 stroke snowmobile pipes but never thought of the 950.
Until now that is.

THANKS, looks great.

installed CJ's adjustable side stand - brilliant !
Set it to just a little shorter than stock, and was able to slap the stand down anywhere/everywhere on the trails today !

My grabby clutch was a clogged oil jet and possibly a cracked backer plate behind the slave....
CJDesigns has a fix both of those...

I've cleaned the oil jet, it wasn't clogged when inspected.

When I've had the clutch slave off it looks okay. No visible cracks. I have flushed the fluid for the slave.

I've removed and rearranged the plates and inspected that odd one at the bottom of the stack that is known to cause issues.

I hate to think the only way to verify oil flow is the (schweet) CJD window clutch cover.

Today I noticed that my clutch is significantly dragging when disengaged, quite a bit. Might just need to replace the clutch push rod. Maybe it is worn down and isn't long enough to separate things enough to get lubed. (or, maybe my clutch slave bolts are coming loose . . .)

It is frustrating chasing the cause down so I can kill it.

I recently had my slave apart and confirmed my suspicions about the design of the bleeder feature of the stock setup: Though I had just flushed the system, the fluid in the slave was still contaminated. The bleeder screw, being located right above the banjo, bleeds the line, and the master thoroughly. But, the slave, being below, and on the opposite side of the banjo, gets little, if any bleeding action. The old fluid and dirt just sit there, while the fresh fluid flows right past the salve inlet. Ideally, the bleeder would be on one side of the salve, and the inlet would be on the other, providing flow through the cylinder.

In the future, I will remove, and disassemble the slave to clean it. I might as well change the o-ring each time I am in there, too (24 cents is cheep insurance.)

Pounds lost... pounds gained

So part 2 of my 2 into 1 project was completed today. Got home from work to find a box waiting for me on the door step. CJ Designs sent my new black ESB...



I removed the side cover (again) as the ESB uses the same two stock exhaust pipe mounting points.



With the ESB in place this is a nice side view without the side plate hiding most of it....



Put all back together...



And now I can free up the space in my tank bag (used by my extra tools, tubes, patch kit, and bungees). What will probably happen is now I'll just refill the tank bag with more crap and just make the bike heavier, but what the heck!

Here's another view...
