Finally finished installing a Cyclops Motorsports LED lightbar kit onto my 950. Dropped a 630 LED lightbar in with a Skene dimmer setup. Dimmed around 40% power with the low beams and full power with the highbeams. Nice clean mount setup with really nothing to break off in a crash.

Let there be light. This thing works great!

Is that a 3 Gallon a Rotopax? If so how did you mount it to the rack?

Looks like you put the front mounting tabs on the outside of the skid plate. Why?

The fronts are in and the backs are out. Trick of the lighting, no doubt.

Bled the front brakes and clutch last night. Two days of work and I'm off for a long weekend an intend to use it well.
Note: new 908RR rear tire is slick. Lights up and gets tail happy with the usual 1150 Adventure calibrated throttle.
As a rider this can be seen as fun. The police may take a dim view.
This has been a public service announcement and in no way reflects the views or actions of the management.

I installed the Puig touring screen, got rid of the fugly reflector bracket the bolt onto Canadian bikes here by the plate - and installed the KTM front brake fluid cover which looks great - but would not seal and pissed brake fluid all over me and the bike everytime I hit a bump. So needless to say the Brembo cover is back on. There was no rubber gasket and I tightened it as far as it would go.., just doesn't seal properly. Anyone else have a leak with the orange cap?

after working on the 990 for the past few months prepping for an upcoming alaska/inuvik trip, there is a light at the end of the tunnel...



mods so far this past winter are: safari tanks, CJ storage box, remus 2-1, custom mounts for jesse panniers to clear cj box and remus, extra fan, CPR snap out, uni pre filter, desmog, euro map, madstad/aeroflow screen combo, ktm rally pegs, carbon fork protectors (to stop the brake line wear on the fork tubes) etc...

i still have some maintenance to do, but i fired the bike up tonight and plan on taking it out this weekend to dial in the madstad screen angle/height.

Installed the Stock fly screen,


I like the look better than the tall on. Tomorrow morning I'll know if I like the function.
