rode it, washed it and put it away for a few days... :)

prior to the weekend, I mounted my 276C and hard wired it into an SAE plug behind the dash, took the mousse insert out of the front wheel and put in a tube (more street oriented riding in future), lubed chain, installed my minion on the front fender. not to remove the rear bodywork and figure out how I managed to pull the akro exhaust mounting bolt out of the subframe hole?

Drill holes in the swing arm just now. Bought the bike new in January. I was shocked at the amount of water that came out the right side. Yes I've done a few water crossings, but nothing that I would classify as deep water.

Don't wait, do it now!

I don't have a pic, sorry. There is a weld at the end of the swing arm where the axle carrier is welded to the swing arm. I drilled a 1/8th" hole about 1/4" forward of this weld. Be prepared for water to come out. Cordless drive is probably the safest method because of this.

I'm in danger of feeling like I know what I'm doing Don't worry, no back patting until it actually runs.

All exhausts were way tight, one intake was just under spec, and the guys at the Harley parts desk seemed grumpy that I wasn't wearing a $75 HD t-shirt

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

Over the past couple of days I did a few upgrades to my Erzberg SE.

Fitted a 'gefr' 9mm s/s resleeved clutch master cylinder. Smooth as silk. Just enough action with my Oberon slave for 2-finger ops.

Fitted a volt meter inside the RH handguard with 3M Velcro.

New Pirelli Scorpion 450/80 X18 rear. OK for dual sport taking it easy.

Swapped out the OEM rear shock for a used SM. Fed up trying to get my leg over the thing. Rebound adjuster seized but works fine. Chucked the preload spacer from the forks and filled with 2.5W oil to 120mm airgap. Works for me.

Renewed the 17T front sprocket. Forgot about the ball bearing in the Oberon slave cylinder and almost lost it.

New Seat Concepts carbon sides, grippy top with orange stitching. Beautiful. Very grippy!

New Black Dog triple clamp mounting bracket for my Duallies. Previous modified bracket broke and dropped the light into the front wheel! Got away with it.

Fitted a beautiful black Zen Overland rear rack.

Sorry no pics.

Installed the CR8EIX spark plugs I ordered last week that the idiots at Oreillys auto parts didn't actually order till yesterday when I went in to get them.
Then reassembled the bike after the valve adjustment. Runs mucho better now.

I got a new Exide battery. The old one I had was giving me clear signals it was about to die. It would not charge completeley and was just not reliable after 48h unused.

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.
