Flip the throttle over so the cables are on the bottom.

might be a good idea to plug the drain hole on throttle housing as it now faces up

Rebuilt carb/cleaned.JD jet setup
Waxed it all for the first time - easier cleanup after a ride I'd think

What did I do to my KTM? Well....
I crashed moving along pretty quick on a hair pin turn in loose gravel trying to power slide like I had been doing all day. Bike slid away from me on its side about 20 feet and my knee got ripped up pretty good. It was like a grapefruit by the time I got home. Beemer dude i was riding with came up on me a little panicked. Hahaha. Had a great day though. Bearspaw area with miles and miles of gravel roads with some deep rutted and muddy sections too.

I texted the guy asking if I needed full riding gear and he's like "nah, I'm in jeans". Shoulda known better and just brought 'em. Doh! Jacket save my elbow and shoulder though!!

Only bike damage was crash bar scars and my passenger foot peg on the right side was pulled away pretty well when it did a 180 on her side. Fixed it when I got home. The bitch of it is, if Canada post had delivered my pannier rack on Friday like they were supposed to the foot peg wouldn't have pulled away. They did however deliver it and my new MEFO this morning and the pannier rack is on!!

Did 400 miles of tarmac riding 2-up yesterday and the Conti's were amazing. Rode very smoothly and stuck to the road like glue. Even drug one of the side bags and that freaked out my wife a little so I eased it up on it bit.

Love the new tires!

908 on rear and trying a T63 for the first time no the front. We're doing a 5 day offroad run the end of May that I bought the tires for.. problem is I'll probably have them worn out by then
