Just drilled mine (thanks for the reminder) and I gotta say I was pretty shocked at home much water came out - quite a bit from the left side, just a few drops from the right.

one of the first things i did to my bike. even then, with just washing it twice and no water crossings, i still had a decent amount come out. in my opinion this should be the first thing done to every ktm. some other brands do it for you, not sure why ktm doesn't.

Filled my safari tanks yesterday after my valve adjustment. Realized I needed to turn the petcocks on. Full safaris, bad petcock now I have to drain the right side back out so i can swap the new petcock onto it.

It wasn't but it's done now. Luckily I had a few empty gas cans around.

I took it apart right down to the valve covers off. Took me three hours. I am tired. In the morning I'll check the valve clearancs and adjust as required.

This morning I managed to get the clearances checked. I need one shim.


Changed the coolant and fan switch, re-filled the coolant and the SAS fell off!


I'll run over to the local dealer for a shim and cam cover gaskets. The front cover was leaking at the front. A little bit of a mess.
Then button things back up, change the air filter, then the oil, then burp the cooling system and while the rear wheel is off, lube the adjuster threads, and knock the edge of the shock muck guard / fender. Someone had removed two screws allowing the piece to flap away form the swingarm, but that could flap into the tire. Might tear up some stuff so I'll be trimming the flap and replacing the screws.

Installed the Oberon Slave which combined with the brembo master and dot 4 fluids now works flawlessly... Really happy with the upgrade...


The changed my fuel filters with a gefr set. I think the old ones starved the bike.


And found an unplugged plug that haven't noticed before, well what the hell, if it works I won't bother for now.

Installed a 2-1 Wings system with a Neduro Aux fuel tank. Also finally got around to installing a high fender kit.



Had to do a little custom bracket to get the Black Dog light bracket to work with the 950 style brake lines.

I picked up the kitchen sink. My first long run with the Safaris....they rock!!! Filled up at 342 miles and still wasn't into reserve. My Rottweiler and fatter map has dropped me just below 40mpg (mixed interstate and Denver traffic). Not really worried now with the big tanks. And it growls and pulls like a sled-dog now!!! Very happy! Started out the day at 5am with 2 hours sleep and froze my nads off until the sun came up. The rest of the day has been glorious riding weather so far....

Painted my orange crash bars black using Plasti Dip. Turned out great and it is low commit because it peels off later like a sticker if I don't end up liking it. But, I do like it, so if the paint doesn't hold I'll just get them powder coated. I might paint the plastic panels behind them too to keep them nice and black and protect them a bit from road debris.

Say goodbye to all the o-rings and seals in the system. Break will destroy them. Flush quickly quite fork oil or mineral oil. Buy cheap massage oil to flush.

Now to put this thing back together and do the whole ITG air filter / load a new map thing that also has me nervous.
What map are you using with the ITG filter?
