I'm not usually into bling but i like gold drive chain. This is how the rest of the bike looks.



20K and I believe this to be the first drive gear change

Beema, that gold tooth decal is sweet!

It's not the most elegant set up, but the pannier bags are similar style from Swedish Military surplus. Nice for the price, but not waterproof. I think both bags were around $60 to the door. Some very minor strap modification required, but they hold a respectable amount of stuff. I know there's at least a few others on here with the same set up.

Last time I checked in the UK, the OE DID KTM black chain was 20 more than the DID aftermarket gold chain.

I didn't want the gold chain, but it seems to be more corrosion resistant that the black version.

They are Steel Pony bags from Australia http://www.steelpony.com.au/

They are a waterproof soft bag, I have mine lined with plastic water jerry cans with the tops cut off to give them shape. I really like them. You can pull the cans out with the contents still in them to carry in to motel room.

Nope, I'm afraid Pyn's fix simply involved a phone call to a tame KTM dealer and a credit card ...........

Bought a new 500EXC to reside next to my 990. Well, actually, it's a used 2014 with 13 hours on it and already has some nice upgrades like, EU ECU map, Ti Pipe, skid plate, de-smogged, and best of all way cheaper than the dealers new price out the door bone stock. I thought to even think "used 2014" on any KTM would be ridiculous.

Today,I did some fettling of the 06 525EXC I just picked up,decided to go vintage on dualsport riding. Found a 46 hour clean 525.

Before that I picked up some slick Bulletproof designs radiator guards,perfect orange coloring,they go on the 2014 300XCW.

New singletrack bikes are especially good!

ABS Relocation to to CPR Doghouse on a 990 Adv

I have a 2011 990 Adventure Dakar edition. I want to install Rade's underseat gas tank to extend the bike's range. Unfortunately, The ABS unit is getting in the way...

The idea is to remove the ABS unit from the stock location under the seat:



And re-locate it into the the CPR Doghouse.



There is not much room in the Doghouse, but the ABS unit just fits, and there is plenty of room for all the wires and break lines.

Removing ABS requires disconnecting the break lines and opening the three bottom screws that connect the holding bracket to the bottom of the rear fender. I had to remove the bottom bracket and cut the left edge off so that the ABS unit fit in the Doghouse.

First, I was going to cut it with the saw:



But then I got lazy and just used sheer cutter:



This is what the front side of the ABS unit and the bottom bracket look like after the cut:



Notice the pin that sticks out from the bottom of the unit and connects to the bottom plate. I had to drill a hole in bottom of the Doghouse so that the unit sits flat. I also drilled two hols in the bottom of the doghouse for screws to attach the bottom bracket in place:



Since the top of the Doghouse is almost flush with the underside of the seat, I had to cut four slots in the walls of the Doghouse to allow the ABS wiring harness and the brake lines through:



The front break lines are long enough to reach the relocated ABS. I re-routed the ABS wiring harness so that it runs in from the left side of the rear cylinder. I used the stock rubber sleeve to protect the harness and the brake lines from the sides of the slots.



Unfortunately, the rear brake lines are about 5 inches too short to reach the re-located ABS unit. I had custom lines made at a local auto supply shop.

The new short line is about 19" and the new long line is about 39".

These are the custom (top) and stock (bottom) lines that go from the ABS unit to the rear break reservoir:



These are the custom (top) and stock (bottom) lines that goes from the ABS unit to the rear brake caliper:



After connecting the rear brake lines, I'm ready to bolt everything down:



Since the ABS unit fits so tightly in the Doghouse, there is no space to put the small orange bracket that secures the Doghouse in place. Instead, I drilled a hole in the side wall of the doghouse and put one of the stock screws in frame bracket that holds the gas tank. You can see the screw under the sticker and above the black brake lines:



This is what it looks like from the left side.



And here it is, all tucked in and ready to go:



The ABS wiring harness is on the top left corner of the Doghouse. The rear brake lines are on the bottom left, front brake lines are on the bottom right, the wire that connects the ABS harness to the main harness is on the right side. The TuneECU plug and resistors are tucked into the black plastic tube on top of the ABS unit.

The hardest part of all this was to bolt everything down. There is very little space to work with once the ABS unit is in place. Getting the screws for the brackets that hold the Doghouse in place were the most challenging. It would be nice if the good folk at CPR could make a Doghouse that is already setup for the ABS relocation...

Nice work !

I`m still thinking I will ditch my abs. But I like your work.

I was thinking of the underseat tank, but I just won a set of Safari Tanks off evilbay foe 1k. So If I got the underseat tank (wich I still may do) I could use it to store water. Then get CJ`s side storage box and I have space for tools ect. Plus the dog house, Im sweet !

Orange everywhere in Cambodia

There are lots of KTM fans in Cambodia. Everywhere you look, there are guys in our favourite colour. They are so excited to see KTM's rolling throughout the Kingdom.

I am sporting new graphics I designed and had cut here. Completely reflective 3M glow in the headlights materials. Cost me $30 for the sticker wizards to cut and apply.
