Installed a new top box Pelican. Not sure if my pin solution will work long term; but it does seem like a handy set-up to start.






My thought is I can use a TSA style lock to make it a touch more secure, but be able to quickly pop off it I want to take the box off.

If it becomes loose, I am going to just bolt it on.

You can get this setup :

Well worth the money, I have 2 different size cases I swap between rides.

Also checkout seahorse cases. They are just as tough, but has integrated locks.

Hepco Becker Gobi luggage hooks



$100.00 on KTMTwins

GoGoGavin luggage hooks



$8 at West Marine


Might not look as good, but just as functional (story of my life)

We've been getting a lot of mileage out of the Gobis lately. Carrying stuff, camp seats, crash guards. We use the water containers a lot too (sans expensive HB valves), especially out in the desert.



Seems silly to have ~1 gallon capacity in each side just to bolt on expensive TT water bottle holders and waste all that space

Changed front brake liquid

It is easier to drain both calipers first, do a refill/re drain to clean the hoses and then fill for the last time doing the bleeding procedure

What did I do to my KTM today...

A little of this and a little of that!


Finally starting to build it back up! Just in time for spring. Next up is the 990 ADV!

Look closer. It's on the center stand. The jack stands just keep it from tipping fore and aft. Almost no weight is on either jack stand, just there for insurance.

She wears leather gloves when riding her dirt bike?
