Thought my clutch was toast. 2007 990 Adventure with 41,500 miles on the stock clutch, drive plates and friction plates.

Pulled it apart and found the bolt holding the inner clutch basket to be loose. I was able to turn it with my fingers almost a full turn to snug it up. Went ahead and checked all the plates and they were fine. Pulled out the impact driver and set the inner clutch basket bolt. Buttoned her back up and all is right in the world again!

Let us know how it goes. I'm very interested to see.

Well, there's a culmination of things I've done for the past two months but today, I performed a Canisterectomy and I would have also done the SAS bypass but my plates aren't here yet so I'll pull it apart for that in th near future. To date however:
1- Leo Vince mufflers then replaced by Akrapovic mufflers
2- Euro Headlight with HID for the low beam
3- Piaa 510 lights mounted on crash bars
4- HDB top handlebar clamp with switches for lights, etc...
5- Akra map loaded (don't like it)
6- Secondary rad fan and duct installed
7- Jesse luggage
8- KTM tank bag with rear straps mounted under the seat instead of the crash bars (no rubbing against the tanks that way)
9- 2nd/3rd gear limit removed
10- Alpina 19/17 tubeless wheels with Conti Trail Attack IIs installed
11- Standard height KTM 990 sidestand installed (to get the bike on the right angle now that it's slightly lower from the 19/17 wheels)
12- KTM rear luggage rack and Renazco seat (from my previous 950ADV)
13- KTM orange crash bars (R does not come with crash bars)
14- KTM progressive throttle kit (yes, much less throttle snatchiness)
15- White and black hand guards (KTM)

There is an easier way
Get the Tuneecu cable, connect, disable the EPC by double clicking on it, you're done

I sat and stared at my big girl wanting to ride but not having a chance in hell.

thats 3 out of the four needles in the right side of my back. Each one is 4.5 inches long and hollow for an electrode to go into and burn the nerve. I had 4 on the left side as well with a total of over 30 shots. Most lydocane to numb the area.

Eek! What the hell happened? Did she turn on you and cause all that havoc? I've got upper spinal issues but apparently minor in comparison. Get well soon!

It wasnt this ktm...however it was a ktm...took a header and compressed my whole lumbar spine but worst was my L2 which was compressed 30% or so. several bulging discs. Lots of arthritis and nastiness built up in my whole lower back.
