Now you have your bike's manuals with you any time any where (like when you are trying to figure out how the heck the thing goes back together after disassembling it trail side )

You can probably do this if you have a droid phone as well (assuming you can find a PDF reader).

+1
Correct - Adobe reader app i use
(there is about 30 reader apps to choose on android market 98% FREE)

INSTALING THE MANUALS:
with my HTC Desire & Hero i upload the manuals via USB from the PC into > OTHERS MEMORY CARD FOLDER > in the 32G SD

then just open Adobe reader it shows all the PDF files stored on the phone & SD

Don't you love playing "find that bolt!" you just dropped into the bike

...an hour of disassembly later...

Finally after pulling the skid plate, left tank, the rectifier off, and then removing the hose bracket to pull the hoses out of the way I spotted it...

Can you spot the bolt? (hint: dead center of the photo)



...there it is.. wedged between the oil lines

The good news is that the water pump seal upgrade I did 4000 miles ago is holding up... oil filter looks nice

I've learned to use one of those pencil pocket magnets that extends. I use it for removing and then installing the glovebox bolts & screws. Last bolt I lost was hiding on the shock.

What size are the bigger bolts you've fitted, and can I order them from KTM?

I'm a newbie at re-threading, so any help is appreciated...

JB
Using the same bolt size, but drilled it out, tapped it, and inserted helicoils.

Not today, but yesterday returning back home from a jaunt up in Scotland I had three, yes three fooking punctures on the rear!!

Number 1



Two guys stood and looked on amazed as I broke the bead with the side stand
One of them said that if that would've been him he would have called the breakdown people out

Number 2

No pics

Number 3



Found out at this point that the beading in the tyre had come through the rubber and it was this which was causing the puntures I had no more air cannisters and was down to my last tube, so I called out for help on KTMforum.co.uk for any fellow inmates to lend a hand and sure enough Righanger came to the rescue (amongst others!) with a part worn tyre and a pump.



Managed to get home at midnight

You carry 3 spare tubes DeeGee

I wonder if you could have put duct tape along the torn bead and protected the tube that way?
