Thanks for that. I think there is only 8mm of rear preload as standard, but will wind out what I can. Don't know his weight but he's not a biffer (if that word translates).

cheers

Yep. It's handy with knobs, off pavement or on. It's mostly helpful when you're riding slow, bumpy rocky stuff. Prevents the inadvertent throttle inputs that make you go all Superman-like.

It does sometimes seem to take off a little too much of the edge, so I revert back to the 200 or 100 cam if I'm not doing technical stuff.

I'm riding in Timor-Leste at the moment... heading into Indonesia and mainland Asia for a while. When I had the tank off just before I left Australia, to replace a stuffed pump, I noticed a leak around the fuel level sensor.

Sorry to ask the question without doing some more searching... but the net connection here is shitty .... but is there an easy fix, or a "get me along OK" fix? I asked the KTM mechanic at the shop I was working outside when I did the fuel pump and he gave me some "white snot" to put on it. Doesn't seem to have worked .... as I had dripping fuel for a while there today.

Any thoughts? Bear in mind, I'm weeks away from getting any spare parts sent in. Weeks and thousands of km....

Thanks Stobie! Definitely don't want to lose the "edge" . So once you put on the G2 throttle tube you can just trade out the cam as needed?

On my 990 adv the longest part of fitting was getting the rubber grip off the old tube and onto the new one. Changing cams would be a 5 min, one socket job if the grip is already on.

cheers

Markie

EDIT: 2 sockets if you need to remove a bar end hand guard etc :)

Yep I've seen multiple reports of regulator failure, usually starts with a whistling battery.

Yeah it happens, consider relocating to a spot with more airflow.

Yes-- just replaced the one on my 2007-- 23,000 miles. Was intermittent for a couple of weeks.

Yep, about 5 minutes, like Markie said. More of my time is spent removing/replacing the handguard.

I thought about this while riding yesterday. For me, I get to many of those awkward, about to stall moments where I appreciate a quick reacting throttle input. And usually when I stall while standing I end up on the ground. But yes the ass end does step out pretty quickly with the stock cam. Please report back your experience with the new cams.

Nice bike! The one I was referring to had a yellow frame (and was made at the same factory). Now back to the original thread.

Just noticed this today. I am getting a strange clicking noise from the steering. I can't believe the bearing could be bad, no movement in the triple on the stand. Looked for something cracked or showing wear signs. What else could it be?
