unifilter

Well picked up my bike from Unifilter yesterday and have done about 100k's and the bike runs fine, will do some more k's as soon as the weather breaks and see if it effects fuel etc. Have some pics to share.
These are the neoprene washers


There are two filters yellow is the inner and orange is outer.


The inner fitted


The outer fitted


There is a rubber seal that goes in here to make it watertight

There are filters for the hoses too

I now have three foam filters, this maybe overkill but the bike is running fine and has really good protection. These will be in production in the next week or two and the kit will retail for about $95.00 AUS and will fit 950 also. I would like to add I have no connection with Unifilter they simply used my bike to make the prototype filter.

I'm afraid not high enough. Here's couple of measurements taken from the bottom of the front mount.



You could raise the mounting points with aluminum brackets, something like in this pic:

And, or put neoprene protectors around fork tubes.

And installed a good friend's production: A new two piece windscreen. Lower part is carbon and the upper part is plexiglas. Lower part is pretty much ok with clean airflow for everything but with the upper part for long trips it is just fantastic. No more buffeting at all !!!









And he decided to name this new head as "Alien Queen".

How does it say in Turkish? Excellent!!!

Thank you for the picture, will look at raising the fender some with some aluminum brackets if it will clear bottoming out.

I put in a Rottweiler air filter setup, Factory Pro jet kit, removed the canister, SAS stuff, and its going back together as we speak. And since I took the TPS sensor off before I read the directions saying not to, I guess I get to adjust that too. Man , there is a load of shit that came off, that isn't going back in.

Sounds like fun!


I did 18k of traveling on the KTM last summer and HATED the 17t/42 sprocket setup on the highway. Even at 80mph the I'd have to shift down..twice sometimes, to pass cars or it would kinda buck and snort at me. Went to 16/45 and actually love it on the highway. sure the rpm is up a bit more but you can now actually use the power.

Been running 16/45 for a little over a year now. Love the grunt off the line but this trip will be higher speed. Planning on running 17/45.

Picked up an Impreza full of KTM spare for my Adv.

Full

Now to sort through it all and order some service items and get the beast up and snorting.

(After processing my spares I may have triples of some parts to sell on *maybe)

Sad, so sad . . .

Sad so sad to see a KTM in this condition.


But, that's what ya gotta do to:
  • Change the balancer shaft seal,
  • Upgrade the water pump to the CJ Designs shaft,
  • Check the valves,
  • Tighten the head bolts,
  • Change the plugs,
  • Service the forks,
  • Tighten the triple tree,
  • Install a new front tire,
  • Install sprockets and chain,
  • Install a new air cleaner,
  • Install Samco hoses,
  • Service the rear shock,
  • Service the swing arm,
  • Add a new bash plate, and
  • Install other bits and pieces.
