RTV it like a KLR dude or just replace it like a BMW dude?

I've had that happen. A small crack in the plastic sensor. Good job find'n it. Its hard to see. I think I replaced my O ring twice before I saw the real problem.

Leave it or RTV it. Dont let it stop your ride, and replace it later.

Had to go to a meeting and being a sunny morning, took the beast.
Five hour later I rolled back to the office - let's just say I took the long way...

I have this new-to-me 990 R, and the under seat tool storage is a bit snug.


I did a little studying of it across the top of a beer bottle and what do you know two screws later its quite roomy,



Now, how does that helmet lock cable work?

It's a 46mm. I got the SAE equivalent.

Thanks I'll get the adaptor so I can use me torque wrench.

New Exhaust Cans Installed

I decided to install a set of FMF Q4 slip on exhaust canisters on my '11 990 Dakar Adventure. It was straight forward and it took about 2 hours to complete the job. I was impressed with the quality of the FMF slip ons and how well they fitted up to the bike.

The disassembly is straight forward. When removing the side racks, I left the forward most foot peg bracket fastener loose and did not remove it. I could then swing the racks down out of the way for removal of the side panels. The 3 fasteners that hold on the mufflers were rusted and were a slight problem to remove. (I could see a future problem with these seizing)

The assembly was as easy as disassembly. The FMF's have a machined alum bracket riveted to the muffler with a slot where it attaches to the bike. I only had to put a loose fastener thru the attach lug and the bike mounting lug and then swing the muffler up to the exhaust pipe flange, slip in the gasket and start the fasteners into the muffler. ( I used some anti-seize on these fasteners.) I then slowly tightened all the fasteners a little at a time, started the bike up and let it warm up and then went over all the fasteners again. I then installed the side panels, but left the fasteners loose. I then swung the racks back into position and finished the installation.

I really like the sound of the FMF's, but some may find them a little loud. The weight of stock mufflers was 10.4 lbs each and the FMF's at 4.5 lbs. They also ran much cooler. I'm not sure about the mapping, but plan on having the shop check it out when I take the bike in for the 7500 service which is coming up soon. I did take it for a 75 mile ride and there werent any flat spots and the burn at the end of the muffler is a nice light brown. ( Could be a little lean )

I didn't take the time for pictures because this is so straight forward. If I really hussled my ass off, I could have done this in half the time, but minus the 2 Pacifico's. Hell yeah.
