Mcmaster has great prices on o-rings, and the nice thing is they should be on your doorstep by wednesday.
Found it. 25mmx3.0mm stretches out quite nicely. I can feel how snug it is. Thanks much! Cheers!

Actually Saturday

Spent a little time removing luggage racks and pulling a Neduro tank off my 990 ADV.

Really opened up a tremendous amount of real estate inside the left hand bag hanger.

I've been buying my o-rings from "The O-ring Store", they ship fast thru USPS and only charge a flat shipping rate of $5 http://www.theoringstore.com/index.p...tbvlqkml13qt41

If the rest of the bike looked as good as the seat I would be done!

It was a good day for some spring cleaning. New top end on the 300. Fresh shock oil in the 450. A quick rinse on the 990.

2011 KTM 990 Phase I

Never owned a brand new KTM. Loved my 2008 "R" height model, had it dialed in - then bang! Ped on a bicycle blows a red light in front of me.

Bye Bye 2008 - hello insurance check.

Stock 2011


1. Take Home - the Jeep will hold 7,500 LBS as tongue weight. Yes.!


2. Buy Frakles that got ruined in the crash..
LED Running lights


Reused rear bracket after sanding / repainting - saved!!


I love electrical - so why not set up the battery meter, Garmin, Temp Gauge (cheapo). Oh and angel coin for good luck this time...


Gotta have nice footpegs: Pivoting is good once you get used to scraping your toes on the curves...!


Phase II
Photos to come..

- Aux power outlet on side of glove box
- UNI prefilter - was sooo easy
- BIG DOG side stand re locator.....gotta have it.
- BIG DOG Skid plate (slightly used from a 2008) hehehe
- Heated Grips - Oh ..... Yea......toasty.
- ADV 2.2 Tank w/ 2:1 pipe (swiped from the old bike before she set sailed to the "yard")
- Remus single Ti Can (also swiped - it always pays to keep your boat anchor silencers handy)
- Crash Guards: After the first Oil change, thank you....grrrrrrrr
- Acerbis hand guards - - just cause I am NOT afraid to fall and I know what it feels like (THUD)

Phase III
- SUPERPLUSH! Nuf Said.... Stock is sooooo mushy in the front.

More to come...........it's like Christmas all over again.....

Ran into a CVS and bought some baby oil to replenish clutch fluid that pissed all over my Aerostich through the bad master cylinder seal. No bike shop or hardware store near; the gas station I pulled into only had Cheetos beer.

Now looks like time to order a rebuild kit.

Next time run into any auto parts store for some Honda power steering fluid. It is mineral oil. Been running it for years. ;)
No perfume.

Mine went at about 32,000 miles. Not rebuildable. The cylinder that the piston runs in was fecked. I replaced mine with the Evo. I think they are out of business. Here's a linky to the Oberon: http://www.cjdesignsllc.com/about-us...c8-slave-unit/

Looks like Rekluse now makes an adjustable slave: http://blackdogcw.com/black-dog-shop...er-detail.html

Best of luck.
