oh yeah and I forgot, I installed my Minion to the front fender pre ride. just a bit of shaving of his ass to get him enough contact area for the superglue to get a grip.



I was pissed about the weather mainly because I had just taken the tires off last week because I "assumed" that our once a year snow/ice storm was done with. it's not easy mounting these things up, you have to watch your knuckles/pants and with the mousse in the front, makes things more fun. especially when it's cold out.

Drove 30miles home from work without a clutch and without stopping. Master cylinder seal blew. Again.

gefr is doing my second master cyl S/S re-sleeve. I haven't tried his mod yet but shall do next month when I'm reunited with my SE in Chile. He also offers a needle bearing in the lever to cut friction.

This brings the bore down to 9mm and should last for ever. Add to that Rekluse and it should be the best possible solution.

Had a go and making a bracket from 2mm alu for a 2nd fan, not quite there yet. Planning on using the same fan as the stock fan.

Was finally able to wrap up "most" of the winter maintenance on the 950R. Did the usual, fluids, valves, plugs etc and made some tasty add on's.

One thing I always hated about this bike was the time it took to actually get to the cylinder heads to get anything done.

Air box before:



Anything from changing the plugs to syncing the carbs was a complete PITA with this setup.



Went with a vendor on here, The Sporting Wood ITG setup is the shite.

Base plate:



"Sausage" Filter. Hole thing comes off with two quarter turn dzus fittings, and a quarter turn on the air horns.




Also added a set of Rigid 2X2's:




A bi-xenon HID headlight:



A Rekluse slave cylinder and switched from mineral oil to synthetic 2.5W fork oil for the clutch.



And added some Oxford Adventure heated grips.



All in all everything went together easy enough and found no issues. Have a new set of cam chain tensioners I may swap out. Now just need a good rain to clean the salt of the roads................

Learning as I go.....

Replaced the rear brake switch on my 950 - only took me an hour after I realized here was no way I could turn the switch with things as they were. Ended up loosening off the rear master cylinder and guard to give myself enough room to actually turn the switch. Easy after that.

I know it's small, but it gave me a good sense of accomplishment. Working up to doing the water seal next weekend...

Matthew.

Put UNI pre-filter on mine and some frame guards. Also added Ride-On to the rear tire and removed the balance weights. Put anti-seize on the rear axle adjusters as well.

Note: don't drop small tools or bolts down behind the air box, because if you do you'll likely have to remove the tanks to find it.

Can't wait to simplify the setup with all the usual stuff you can remove from the bike with a few aftermarket goodies. I get that we all love this bike, but man did KTM win an award for most tedious bike to work on...

I see all these air box's and snorkel's being removed. Aren't any of you guys worried about water crossings? I mean what do you do when it's deep water?

My sentiments exactly, I have ridden down flooded roads where the water level has come up to a point where my knackers were thoroughly drowned and yet the bike kept going.
