Bought this beauty recently, 2005 KTM 950 Adventure. Only had 22000km, absolutely spotless condition, never been on a gravel road!



Only problem..............................I hated the colour! Ktms should be orange! Also, I wanted the higher travel suspension, so...........................I changed the colour to a BMW colour (Lava Orange),(finally found something about BMW that I like!). Bought suspension from a 950S and fitted it improving the travel from 230mm to 265mm! Fitted a pair of Leo Vince cans and now I am happy! Bike came out beautifully! Goes like hell too!

Fixed my floppy 990 side stand - with the OEM spring in rough offroad it was floppin around so much it'd trigger the engine cut out. 950 dual springs sorted it - much stiffer


And yellow-pigged my windscreen. I had been riding it for a year with 3 inches cut off the top, and I WISH I'd done the YP mod long ago - it is now near perfect


And fitted a new chain & sprockets


Then had a beer!

Installed the new Pirelli Scorpion that came with the bike when I bought it, put the Steel Pony panniers from the SE on it, then went on a beer run for a BBQ at my brothers tonight. That's a full box of 24 golden delicious that fit in one of the Steel Ponies

Took me a while to figure that one out, but I made the same mod a while ago but only just tested it today - FIXED!

Eureka!

Finally figured out why my 990 intermittently cuts out on me.

You savvy types will probably recognize this as the ignition module that bolts just under the key.

Every now and again, the bike would just shut itself off. Didn't matter if I was rolling or idling at a stoplight, but key off/on fixed it every time... until last week. I had it off road for the first time in a long while, and that was the straw that broke the camel's back. It started cutting out any time I moved the handlebars, which led me to finding this broken ignition wire. The HOW rocks. (Of course, this was after I pulled apart the ignition module and re-lubed everything in there and lengthened the springs a bit, all to no avail.)

Now I gotta buy a soldering iron and figure out how to solder this wire back together.

Prepping for the move back west

I anticipation of my relocation back to my beloved WA, I purchased a few goodies. I installed the Remus Roxx and the auxiliary fuel tank this weekend. Overall, I was pleased with the exhaust system. The sound is nice and throaty without being too loud. One of my elderly neighbors gave me a smile and wave as I was warming the bike up earlier, so I take that as a good sign. I live in an apartment complex and leave for work at odd hours, so not pissing off my neighbors is a priority. I used Permatex high temp RTV at the muffler and mid-pipe joints and had no leaks. The only thing I did not like was the fitment of the muffler hanger which does not seem to fit tightly enough for my taste. For the fuel tank, it was a bear to get all of the brackets to line up. The situation was made worse by some of the brackets having holes that would not allow the supplied bolts to pass through. A little elbow grease solved the problem, but it was annoying to have to do that. Other than that, the instructions were pretty clear and the rest of the install was easy. Next up is the steering damper....

Ummmm, look in my defence they are open borders in Europe, and we criss-crossed them many times... It's actually Austria! Oberkrimml.

It was one of the best riding high-passes of the trip!

Now I know where I am/was, here is a proper photo of a Dolomite Italian pass! Was a bit wet! (still great riding though).

SE Long Range

http://motoventure.smugmug.com/Other...6858&k=Btd4ww7 I am getting ready to open a Website offering some unique products, and some ideas iv'e kept on the backburner. Although i didn't purchase my SE till they were discontinued, i believe a demand for product will exist for some time to come. This is
my solution to fuel range, that will get me another 75km in it's current form. I have been testing these for the last
year and a half, and there is over 10,000 km on this Model, and has proven Bombproof. Would like to hear some
feedback or offers of demand for this. Whadya think guys?
