I´ve reached as far as possible before a complete runner.

This week have been ups and downs. All i´m pretty skilled in now.
Bike did run as shown in the video and ran semi ok. I looked forward to the exhaust so i could finish up the noisy part and get on with some testing. Remember the bike is needed to run the 8th April...
I´m not sure its going to be like that.
Yesterday the bike wouldn´t start at all, i could get a puff from the exhaust. Nothing else. hmmm
I found out after extensive cranking that the front header wasn´t warm at all. AHaa. Took out the plug and tested it. It showed an weak flash but should be ok. It was black and wet, gas is surely passing bye. I looked for another plug and the 530 had similar type(LKAR9IB9). Well on with that and showed good signs. Slow starter but it started up after som cranking(4-6 spins).
I had it to the Tuneecu and Bazzaz to read some data. The bike did idle fine, maybe to the weak side(1500rpm). If i hit the gas a bit it would go dead after letting go of the gas.
After all i thought it ran somewhat ok and made my self ready for the virgin ride.
Bike started ok and i drove down the street. From my earlyer LC8 I could tell that it was running partially on 1 cylinder. God be damned. That was untill the second came on and the frontend went for the sky. Holy batman there´re some beans in this "LC8". The smile quickly went away as the bike got on 1 cylinder again and came to dead halt. Feck me. Got back to the shed and dumped it for the night.
Today i tested the sparks(both) and they fired fine. With a charged battery i started testing again.
It runs ok though it go up and down in idle. 2100 - 1400 - 2100 rpm.
It shows an Map sensor pipe 1 and 2 fault.

hmm...

Yep exhaust is 2" al the way, i will upload some photos from my phone.
My Map fault may come from the discarded box where the map sensors may have had another pressure, though they should be able to read the new environmet. Before start and attached to the Tuneecu they both show 1013 hpa(normal barometric pressure in Denmark).

Surrounding pressure is not important. For these map. They are sealed up. Sound like its way rich. Ditch that bazzas till all runs well with stock fuelers man. I have no direction I would start with all the extra calculations going on.. what map values are you getting when running and are you sure the front map sensor is connected to the front cyllinder?

Wel it´s sorted.

Bike is official assembled and runs great. What was wrong. Well I got 3 Map sensors on the bike, probably stnadard knowhow for the most but it puzzled me a bit. 2 Map sensor on the manifold (cyl 1 and 2) and one to measure if i´m on top of the world or at sea level. That would be the normal setup. Problem is that my "setup" of the wiring would be an other outlay than the RC8R. All the Map sensor fit each other. Well my 1 cyl was the ambient air sensor and ambient air senor was the 2 cyl... That defines a rouh idle.
I rode the bike 30km yesterday in a blistering sun. Wow. Takes some time to get used to this size again. 2½ year since i´ve ridden this bike. Brakes became better and better. One thing i had forgotten was how strong this bike engine brake. Wow i had some lockups in the roundabouts. The other thing is the plushness from the 320mm Pyndon suspension setup. I look forward to be pushing it.

...oh the engine, rough runner below 3000 RPM. No way near the new ride-by-wire Adventure. but above 3700 it gets rideable and at 4500 we´ve got the cruise spot. Gearing is an tad longish but as an gravel/road/touring behemoth it should be doable. 5000 rpm and above it is so fast.

I know i have been a douche since no pictures is posted but i will hopeful take an ride today and take some outdoors shot, even some videos.

We had one problem yesterday with the rectifier/regulator that wouldn´t feed the battery, but we think we sourced it to some bad wiring. Test will be today. Other than that it need some attention to the details to make me 100% satisfied.



Pics from the last days of building exhaust, fitting brake etc.























































Ohhh and i went to the local Rukka dealer for some testing....expensive.

arhhh just been on the bike regarding the faulty charging. I think the regulator is shot, but will have to research how to test it.

out

This is the bike that should have been built in Mattighoffen by KTM!
Well done that man. Please will you release a step by step manual on how to do it ourselves? :)

A question about the fork protection are you just planning to use the stock the low fender even if its not fully covering the long pyndon legs?

Have some worries about it snagging and breaking so had plans to try to add a pair of normal protectors inside the low fender since I prefer that look but need to source some protectors of some kind, the 85SX or what many use for the high fender conversion are too short.

When will we see some videos of it in action!
