That's the tool for the (stock) top triple clamp's main nut, not for the axle nut:)
There should be another 32mm wrench in your tool kit -> that is the one for the axle nut:)

And it looks like the one pointed out by the right arrow - extend it with the tool in the white circle:)

edit: sorry if the 990's tool kit is different, and there is no such tool in it, that I'm talking about..

Sorry for the slow response. The frame guards are Touratech, they came on the bike when I purchased it. You can find them on the TT web site at:

thanks, i had seen that pic already, which is at which point i realized that there were a few things missing from my kit:



i think the PO got the "cool" wrench and removed the others since they had duplicate sizes. it also appears to be missing the torx needed for the tanks / panels, that weird angled tool, and the various hex bits. good to know!

Sumi - thanks for clarifying it for me!



back on topic - i got the front tire replaced the today.

from this: (is that how D908rr's always wear?)



to this: Heidenau K60 Scout

The photo you show of your kit is actually a little-bike kit. Something for a 2t or 4t bike in the 125-530 range. That's why you're missing the fairing parts and larger pieces.

Call CJ. He stocks the big bike kits along with a nice leather pouch.

What tool goes in molded long section under seat?

Next to my tool bag's square opening under the seat... there is a narrow long and shallow slot to the left. It looks some KTM type wrench could fit there, but nothing was ever in there. I bought the bike new in '04. Anyone have an idea what that slot under the seat was for? Do other '05-'07's have them?

Also, I found a KTM helmet cable recently online, since mine didn't come with. But not sure how it's supposed to work. I've seen others post a photo of a small metal type blade catch mounted on the end of the air box. All mine has is the wide metal connector for the old smog plugs, now since cannisterectomized away. Any ideas on how the "stock" cable latches?

Now back to your regularly schedule programming of "Bitchin Orange Devil Whores Breathing Fire".

is it just me, or does that (arguably pretty cool) tool just not have enough "bite" to turn the axle nut, especially since the nut is rounded towards the outside?

(i ended up getting a massive 32mm 1/2 drive socket to get it off... i'll need to get a T6 Combo lever for the trail)

Is you rtt damper control mounted to your mirror?

it is, good eye. it's as it was installed by the PO, and my first time riding with a steering damper. it was explained to me as three settings; 0% - 50% - 100% of the setting on the damper's dial.

I stopped on the side of a German Autobahn to pick up my discarded broken header pipe. Didn't half give me a fright when it broke and fell off with no warning!

Also gave several hundred German motorists a fright when I roared past with no exhaust on a 60 mile trip to get to a city for repairs....

Note the oxygen sensor hole is mangled by me after the incident in order to recover my blanking plug as I don't run oxy-sensors on the bike.



Lucky for me the guys at KTM Stuttgart are ACE, and let me take a link pipe off a customers 950, me buying the customer a brand new part, and allowing me to continue on our trip to the Dolomites in Italy.

That slot is for the circled bar in Sumi's picture. It is the extension handle for the axle wrench. At least, that is where mine was when I bought my 2006.
