Chucked on some graphics to brighten her up a bit. The tank ones have been pin holed to try and prevent blistering...will have to see if it works?

Our local KTM put this baby together ( along with about 5 others.)

Awesome bike, great suspension but the seat is damn hard!



They also changed the front counter to a 16T. Gives the bike reallllllllly long legs!

Been having some problems with chain snapping lattely but also noticed a loose tank bolt which turne out to be a snapped tank bolt. Rear end removed also noticed the battery earth lead was well worn, i've never touched it so maybe was caused by the tank bolt cuasing the tank to rub on it?

Last trip on my 950A ran the front for all of the 7000 km which combined with a 908 rear meant I didnt have to change them at all, but they were toast afterwards. Can expect 4000km from the rear desert as well but it all depends on the right hand.....

Sadly I see you still don't have a glove box...I was really hoping you would do all the work for me to copy!
