Installed a Moose Shorty Windscreen and a Conti Trail Attack front. The Scorpion that was on there started to feather and was deteriorating really fast. I think I can squeeze another 1000 miles out of the rear.

I knew they were toast last September when I was slipping the snot out of the clutch trying to get up the last gnarly climb on Pearl... by the time I got to the top I had to let the clutch cool because it was slipping on its own.

I just got around to finally doing it.

Check out the scorch marks on this plate



Old spring on the left.. new on the right:



Tip
:
If you buy the full KTM kit it comes in cool plastic packaging...


Why is the packaging "cool"? Because it doesn't leak... makes it easy to pre-oil the plates before you put them in



..now I feel guilty for not doing it months ago.

Yes Sir, she was toast, bunrt toast.

I soaked the new plates for my sons race bike in a very similar way. Makes us feel a little better afterwards.

Rather cheap, you will have on hand for future label needs and look at the bottom of the page for all the different colors of labels.

Twisted wrenches until the wee hours installing the TT gear that finally showed up (9 weeks!). Pannier racks, bash plate, replacement ss engine guards, Zumo lockable mount and the piece de resistance (pronounced as per Monty Python) is the twin light and screen. I LOVE THIS LIGHT. Complete facelift. Did I mention that I love this light?

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.
