I beat mine up

Broke a rear signal, got some sweet new scratches on the windscreen while maneuvering it under a fallen log on a rocky downhill section and the rear plastics vinyls are peeling off from my knees rubbing it with dirt combined, lol! Got some pretty good gouges in the skid pan, bark busters and fork guards too. Was a beauty day and only one minor get off on a sketchy little hump after a creek crossing. Nothing hurt in that one except my pride though... All that in only 60 kms, ha! I'm am gonna be pretty sore in two days though... Been a while since I had that kind of workout!

Time to shop for some new flush mounts... And pines after better suspension yet some more... Here's a bit of the single track I rode. GoPro batts died about 2 hours in (forgot to charge the backups derp) and we didn't take many pics... I wish I had, but the going was pretty tough and no one was in a picture taking mood.

Got mine safely home after having STM Suspension got through my forks. It rides down the interstate a lot better now. Before it was really twitchy when going over all the expansion joints on concrete sections of pavement. Now, its butter smooth.

There are cheaper options, but I liked how thin it is. Plus, fitting it was a PIA and I figured the extra cash was worth [hopefully] not having to do it again.

I also shielded the inner side of the pump housing and had plenty left over, just in case. Smaller sheets are available, but I needed this in a hurry and that was the only size I could get in time.

Haven't had chance to see if it cures the issue yet, but so far I'm pleased with the way it adhered (all I did was clean and degrease the area prior to application) and am hopeful it will at least help delay things. If it doesn't, it could be time for a second fan and low temp thermostat switch, I guess...


Cheers,



Michael

Good job!
I wish my tanks and airbox had that insulation but I don't want to go through the process of doing it

I have used both the DEI tape in 2" and the reflective/kevlar adhered with a spray mount and tape, I figured you had used the sheet as I could not see any lines. (I will now be doing the same because yours looks so good)

Epic work, so clean.

You will no doubt see a difference - even with the lower quality stuff (think Lowes or HD tape) you will find that it really reflects heat well. (just the glue fails at like 200-300 degrees)

(dont fall into the its gold trap, silver works better till you hit the big $ material.)

Replaced the crappy hose clamps (worm type) with better quality Jubilee ones and that stopped the coolant leak from the SAMCO hoses. Put in fresh TOTAL Rubia SAE50 Diesel engine oil and a new stock airfilter as well. At the price KTM charges for a paper air filter i'm thinking of going for a re-usable one but concerned about the guaze/fabric mesh ones in my riding environment (desert - fine sand, frequent dust storms)

mounted a set of (louder) car horns through a relay for the India trip , changed the leaking oil tank dip stick O-ring (and bought a few spares from the local hardware shop), checked the clutch and stator bolts. Stator ones were plenty tight so left them alone. Clutch bolts were not so and had zero Loctite on them. Re-tightened them with some Loctite applied. Tried a few variations of the FI tune - its a revelation to be able to download a different mapping with a different engine response within 2 mins, do a 15 min reset and then go on a ride and my tunes are getting better with seat of the pants testing but I do plan to get a dyno tune done one day.

Fitted Charlie's sidestand relocator








made the sidestand adjustable for my 17" SD wheels. Still need to get the brake rotor adapters made for the SD wheels....

Migth be better to stick with the paper filter, unless you use a prefilter.

I removed my prefilter tho, I did not like it.

I beat it into submission... Didn't have the strength to show an after-picture though. Maybe tomorrow, lol!

I brought this home...


took them out of the box...



Installed them, it went together much easier than I thought, and ended up with this...


Then rode it here to break in the system.
