One more question - would straight mineral oil work, or does it have to be the special KTM mineral oil?

Mineral oil, baby oil, hydraulic oil, fork oil,,,,,, pretty much anything but brake fluid.

I have mineral oil in mine right now and the pull on the lever is a little stiffer.

Thanks. I think Evil Clown pointed me to that once, but I lost the link. A lot of good info there.

That's a great idea-- I have plenty of foam from the Shorai.

FWIW 70k on baby oil in mine pumping an Evo but I'm sure the Oberon is just as good.

Nice. I like the sounds of this. I am just looking to get through the weekend trip, and then I will look in to replacing the unit entirely. Meanwhile, I will tote a small bottle of baby oil around with me. I'm sure I could find some other camp uses for it as well.

It will be 2 or 3 years old in August (I really don't remember ). Got through NJ winters (ridden a few times per month except maybe last January) without being on a trickle charger and in an unheated garage or shed. The first start attempt of a 30 degree day sure makes me think "this ain't gonna start" but after going through "the process" it started every time. After the first start of those days it starts instantly the rest of the day.

Hello all
Just bought a 990 adventure from 06, 2 days ago.
The bike looks brand new, and I'm very happy so far (but only did a few km in the rain...)
The previous owner had the front lowered quite a lot, and I want to play with it to find a position that swits me more. Can anybody indicate where I can find the torque values for the triple clamps. I searched here a bit and found a comment saying it's 10Nm for the lower clamps screws and 23Nm to the upper, but the guy was not sure. I also read somewhere that these specs are on the manual, but I didn't find it. Is there workshop manual available, or are these on the owners manual and I'm just blind?
Also, to slide them up, any recommendations on how to do it? Just release the screws and move them, right? Or should I take care of something else?
Thanks all
Joao

Everything you need to know about these bikes is located in the Hall of Wisdom, link here;

http://www.ktm950.info/

It has tuning issues and owners manuals and torque specs and everything else. These are the specs for an Adventure, but the SE has also got to be the same.

TIGHTENING TORQUES CHASSIS
HH clamp bolts on top triple clamp M8 20 Nm
HH clamp bolts for steering stem M8 20 Nm
HH clamp bolts on bottom triple clamp M8 15 Nm
AH bolt for handlebar mount M10 20 Nm
Collar bolts for handlebar clamps M8 20 Nm
HH clamp bolts on fork legs M8 15 Nm
Collar screw on front wheel spindle M24x1.5
