Pulled the rear brake pads and rubbed them on a bit of rough cement. Have rear stopping power again... wouldn't lock up in sandy patches on the road before that.

Replaced front (16T) sprocket @ 11070 kms:

Not overly worn, but was starting to "shark":


Went fairly smoothly - simply removed the rear wheel (provide chain slack, room to work), pulled the clutch slave, sprocket cover, and chain guard, unbent the retaining washer, and unscrewed the countershaft bolt.

When re-assembling, put a little grease on the splines, and blue locktite on the threads....

The HOW http://www.ktm950.info/how/Orange%20...ins_index.html as always was immensely helpful

Because it's shorter than stock, there's more wind on the helmet, but unlike the stocker, it's a nice steady push as opposed to the paint shaker machine type of buffeting I was used to. Almost no wind to speak of on the chest - that big kicker at the top makes a huge difference.

after a full weekend of wrenching... the 950 is ready to go

...now I just hope it isn't using coolant (I can smell some in the exhaust when I first start it cold)
