Agreed... I've got some of his gear already. His solution would have been cheaper and better than the standard KTM Australia rip-off, but I need to get the bike back on the road for a ride this weekend... so KTM are winging an axle to me supposedly by tomorrow.

Yeah,... 17/45 just lowers the RPM' s on the highway.

Correct but you need to turn rear spacer block 180 deg

Not compared to stock. Im sure you meant compared to the lower gearing. I still have stock gearing and have about 11k miles. It's tough off road but I have zero complaints on road, the bike's too fast on the top end if anything. I can't wait to try a 16 or 17 / 45 setup.

I just want to say, bone stock, the bike is awesome. I clutch up second gear wheelies easily. I don't have to balls to try 3rd gear yet, but I'm sure it would go up. What a bike.

Here's a recent picture of her.

Thats a great look'n OLD "S". It's great see'n a 10 year old bike as if it just rolled out of the factory (yes I did notice the single disk ).

Geting ready for Ushuaia at the end of the year

I have been preparing my 990 ADV 2011 for a trip to Ushuaia at the end of this year. Lots of small things and lots more to do..

KTM Ergo seat
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...psf0945f8c.jpg

Radiator gard for more ventilation
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps7a9e39c4.jpg

Replaced broken quick disconnect broke out of the blue (will buy a metallic one later)
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...psf9e2249c.jpg

KTM auxiliary LED light
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps94f5ed7a.jpg

CJ CF Exhaust protection
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps668ca011.jpg

Jesse Luggage panniers
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps57f586e6.jpg

Fender extender for rain on road ride (I am not a big of road rider)
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9b11c226.jpg

Aluminum covers for front and rear break and clutch
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps218cca11.jpg

KTM heated grips
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...psf86b2f23.jpg

USB por for my GPS (tank bag) and camera and phone
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...psaca73ea8.jpg

New clutch lever, amazing and very easy to install
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...psa014f32f.jpg

BMC air filter
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...pse015f661.jpg

My custom made ship skin cover for the seat..
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...psd7eb50f4.jpg
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps9510ba2a.jpg

frustration when I installed the Remus and found out that I could not use it with the Jesse Luggage mount... Neither with CJ aluminum rear thank... Al and CJ are working together to find a solution for this.
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps2cb751e7.jpg
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps8d59da77.jpg
http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...ps7f1d74c5.jpg

Finally touring screen and crash bars, almost ready

http://i1322.photobucket.com/albums/...psa5052e23.jpg

I need to wait for the modify Jesse Luggage mount so I can put back the Remus 2:1 and buy CJ's aluminum tank. Other than that I guess I need the side stand relocator.

I also got from CJ a water pump kit and gas pump for carry on parts when I go.

I gues I am ready to hit the road....
