In addition I painted in black the side spoiler protectors from the std model and installed them.

The windshield is made out of carbon fiber by an inmate that goes by the name of giancarlo. Great quality and quick delivery all the way from Europe.

Of course. That is in a very different place. Ktm engineers put two of them for a reason. Every time I taken them out they both need to be cleaned.

So simple to do and such a HUGE difference! This mod makes it so much easier to manage the bike, especially since I can hardly reach the ground...
Hi,

Could yo explain it better? Does it ride like an automatic?

speaking of the devil...



granted im only using 2 of them. i did the "hose" mod to make the oil changes easier. this was the primary motivator for the upgrade on the drain plugs.

on another note,

what do you you think of this filter? please tell me im being paranoid and those waves are nothing to be concerned about.

2012 990R with 2,600 miles. oil changed at 500 and current.



other than that, did a quick test run of the camping gear. worked out well and hardly noticed the addition of the weight.



laters,

laramie

Go ride the bike for about an hour then just put the bike on the kickstand and pull the clutch cover. If you have a vanilla milkshake on the inside of the cover then you need to call CJ. You have to ride it for a while to get it hot enough to burn off all the condensation, think CJ said something to this effect and I've seen the same thing with my clear clutch cover.

My unused filter looks a bit wavey just like yours. The lines will never be perfectly straight. :)

The EXP turns the clutch into semi-automatic gear box. Meaning that you don't have to engage the clutch leaver with your left hand to get it in gear or to change gears. Also the bike can now stand in idle in gear without pulling the clutch leaver and without stalling.

You can see in the video I posted that I'm standing still in 1st gear and the bike is still running but the clutch leaver is not engaged. As soon as I turn the throttle, the gear engages and the bike takes off.

Gear box is not full auto because the rider still has to change the gears with the left foot. But this is done without pulling the clutch leaver.

If you have a slow coolant leak, you wont see any milkshake.
Theres an old thread I posted about 2-3 years ago - I had a slow coolant leak (undetected because the rad cap had also failed to do its job so the reservoir tank was still full) - and there was no evidence of emulsion in the oil.
However, the oil filter was eeever-so-slightly wavey - like the one pictured - and I wondered the same thing at the time. In my limited observation, healthy oil filters tend to be straight-as-a-die.

Always check your actual radiator fluid level - dont just rely on the reservoir level.

I don't think you need a magnet with the hose. The magnet is not powerful enough to pull metal fragments from the tank. The metal fragments are heavy and they sink to the bottom of the tank. The magnet simply holds these fragments that sink on top of it because the plug is att the bottom of the oil tank.

Any metal parts that sink/fall into the hose (because it is in the bottom of the tank) will be trapped at the bottom of the hose. This is the same as being trapped on the magnet. There is no way for heavy metal fragments to float back up the hose. The fragments will be extracted from the tank when the hose is opened and drained.

Of course, you won't be able to see the shards when you drain the hose, unless you rummage through the drained oil...
