Got suspension completed on Friday back from Race Tech. Rode yesterday. Major improvement! Found myself attacking places much faster than I ever would have felt comortable doing before. Now to fine tune it.

7500 km. service of my 990.


And at 14167 km I did a valve check on my 690. They were OK, I didn't have to adjust.

I did a little work to the 990 today. Installed a sidestand switch disable thingy; no pic.

Installed a new front sprocket:



And a new rear sprocket:



Even though the rear doesn't look too worn, I like the cool orange sprocket:



My old sidestand foot widener thingy fell off, so I put on a new one:



The front and rear sprockets only had 20,000 miles on them and I've seen some of y'all wear them down way more, but I feel better with the new ones on!

EZ, great pics !

I have a grey 990 just like yours. Same tank bag even !

Just curious as you seem to have a mate with same bike, how do the rear tyres you both were using compare. I dont want to derail this thread. You can pm me if you want. Oh, Im interested in how he likes the 2 into1/storage tank too.

Cheers.

Manufactured and replaced chain tensioner blocks

Mine cracked after the tire company installed a new tire. Bathed my baby last Saturday and noticed the crack. Went to local KTM dealer and nearly got a heart attack after the chap told me that it will take approx a month to deliver. Went to workshop and start manufacturing my new left block. Upon assembly I noticed the right one also cracked and manufactured that one also.

I have the Heidenau rear tire and he had the Mefo rear tire.
The Heidenau has about 9000 miles on it and should have been replaced already. It's crap in the dirt now but for the first 5000 miles I really liked it. Scott seems to like his Mefo rear.

The two into one with the tool box is nice but $$$

Rode it.

!!!!!!!!!

52 miles in city traffic so I could adjust to my clutch and brakes and feel of the big bike.
In 92 weather. Fully geared.

I just had to leave the house, had a potato bike gathering across the street from 9am-dont know when. Is a stable idle really that hard? (No hate to the big H riders but it is really annoying)


Also installed a new non-Pyndon airfilter airbox. my phone and garage remote have a home. I almost cried.


I also loaded my toolkit on the bike, and mini pump, and tube and still had room for a gatorade and a small bag of chips. (battery under seat, tools in small tailbag and under bash guard for pump, tube in fairing) Things will be moved as my rear tanks and bags make an appearance. Also, no pictures, because I forgot my camera, and my phone is a mr. Blurtastic.

Holding your weight!

Finally found a spare hour or so & installed some .60 weight fork springs in my 2011 990 adventure & after a short test ride on some very pot holed gravel roads it's a huge improvement as expected.

Successfully (and easily) changed a badly leaking fork seal after viewing the HOW videos. The other up-side is that the toe of my right boot will never rust after all of the fork oil that was previously deposited on it.
