I sold mine.
It's been a long time since I've been bikeless. Maybe I can save a few dollars for retirement now.

All loaded up.

Nice!! Cole. Looks good.


I tore into mine tonight for an over due oil change, 4280 miles, the oil was pretty dark. Needs a new rear tire and I'm going back to the 16T CS. Also the LED turn sigs got hammered on the last ride so I will replace them with incandescent bulbs, they seem to me more durable.

Thanks!

I kinda feel like most of those LED signals are hard to see........especially at 100mph

990 15K service

I dont have the smarts to do so myself, so had our local KTM shop (with expertise with the big twins) perform the 15k service. Glad I did, as inevitably we made a number of discoveries, and faced a number of challenges:

- as its now summer (dry), we slapped a Heidi Enduro (old style) front on, and K60 Scout rear.
- replaced the chain, as my chain was actually missing 5 rollers - scary ! Lesson: dont bother measuring chain stretch, visually inspect and replace at 15K or sooner.
- valves were significantly out, rear was fine, but front cylinder intake valves in particular were out.

It all ended well, with the big Katoom purring happily on the ride home, and ready for her next adventure !

You really should take him. I've met both of you and you guys would probably have a blast together.
