Started Punkin ('07-990) up today after sitting since Oct 5th (day of accident ):

Complete ABS removal, with new "S" brake lines everywhere, fresh 5.1 fluid and a new "S" Speedo sensor up front

Finished off the Canisterectomy that was merely started when the Safaris were installed
SAS removal
Fuel Filter replacement (both)
Oil & Filter Change and screen cleaning (a little bit of Alu shavings in the screens left from the GAPING case hole repair from 1-1/2 years ago.
GET YOUR SIDESTANDS RELOCATED, everyone!!!

Replaced worn Rekluse EXP parts:
Balls in the wedges were loose & sloppy, wearing the teardop shaped slots in the plates totally straight.

Replaced stock .3mm totally clogged and buggered head Clutch Jet with a new .5mm Jet from CJ

Rebuilt leaking Clutch Master Cylinder with KTM rebuild kit
(I know it will likely leak again, but the parts were cheaper than Master Cylinder replacement,...for now.)
Man that Red Blood turns awefully gooy and black.
I HIGHLY reccommend CJ's Master Cylinder Cooler; it allows for about 3 times as much fluid. And...it looks cool.
Clutch Pipe and Clutch Switch replacement

Coolant Replacement and complete Flush:
You would not believe how much crap was stuck hard in the radiator fins!! Couldn't even see through it.
Cleaned that FILTHY bottle with Cascade Diswash Detergent and Hydrogen Peroxide, so I can now see the coolant level in it again.

NEW Side Stand relocator: switched from BDCW to CJ's to get the weight support bias more to the rear, needed when loaded with gear.

New NGK Iridium Spark Plugs
New Cam Chain Tensioners

Valve check: (measured with SAE feelers, so measurements are rough)
Rear:
.01-.02mm too tight on right intake
.01-.02mm too loose on right exhaust
Front:
.01-.02 too loose on left exhaust
I left them alone, as I was too excited to get her back together,...
...much too excited to order shims and wait

All new rear plastics, tail-light, and new-to-me barely used seat (Thanks Catalina 38!!)
Neduro Dual Sport Mirrors
Replaced two broken blinkers....I need some FLUSH blinkers up front

and.....NO LEAKS

I was overwhelmed by the quality of my new skid plate that arrived in the mail today. Thanks Kurt!
If you are on the fence on what plate to purchase, this IMHO is the only way to go.

Had a terrible pop at idle from the rear cilinder. The left exhaust had like no exhaust pressure at all. Had this small pop for a while but it became worse lately...allot worse...

So after the big maintenance overhaul (and eliminating all vacuumleaks) i hoped it would be gone. When i fired the thing up today it still had the problem. So i build a carb balancer from a plastic tube, piece of wood and some ATF. Warmed the bike up, connected the balancer and pushed the starter....the ATF went right into the rear intake making a nice smoke puff from the left exhaust. Problem found! Tweaked the screw a bit to get some kind of balance and tried again a few times until the ATF stayed in the tube. Balanced the carbs like planned and it runs great now! No popping on idle and proper exhaust pressure out of the cans on both side. This pop was the only pet-peeve i had with the bike and now it's finally solved. I'm sure im gonna be in love with the thing when i testdrive it tmmo.

Pulled the .58 springs and put in the .64's. So much better!
Also replaced dirty stock filter with the DNA unit and man, this bike pulls hard now! Gave her a lot more grunt.

This is particularly important for new engines.
There is a magnet in the drainbolt on the cases.

Took off my mirrors to troubleshoot this horrible wind buffeting. The ride to work was pleasant. Now I need to get some of these
