5am was on the way to work 3klm out of 25klm this morning & all of a sudden big drop in power & felt like it was missing on 1 cyl - so i instantly shut it down & rolled to a stop. hit the starter it turned over freely. ok so fired it up. hmmmm erratic idle & fluffy missing sound - hole in exhaust ? so limped back home slowly.

looked all over the bike exhaust bends etc - wtf is it - curiosity looked down the telco silencers haha found it. pulled the silencer off.

what i found
the Right side core insert (exhaust end) has dropped in/slid in away from were it seals.






have not pulled it apart yet but looks to me that the weld maybe ? down the other end / TIP end of the core has separated to the rest of the core. like the core is a two piece length ?

can anyone confirm if the core is a two piece length or would it had been spot welded on the end & has let go ? & is the core stainless or mild ? if stainless ill need to take it to the b/shop or exhaust place.


need get this done only means of transport now.





just rang the local b/shop there flat out 3 days minimum wait - 2 mechanics walked out on them.

so trying contact local exhaust place not answering phone
1 out of 2



this has cost me $300 in loss wages today




well the other exhaust place here in my town drilled out the pop rivets got the bottom end off looked at it said he did not know how to fix it & gave it to me in pieces $10Aud charge.

so took it home & seen straight away the problem. on the exit end of the baffle core it has a 70mm length of pipe/sleeve that slides in the perforated core. which gives its length & keeps it all snug & tight inside.
the sleeve & core were never spot welded from new & has allowed the sleeve to slide down inside the perforated core.
so with a bit of mucking around to get the right length so its all tight when the end cap is on then welded it (mild) steel.

next was slip it back in squeeze the outer with my thighs while slipping the end cap on with rivet holes aligned & pop rivet back up.

jobs done :) & ripped off $10Aud

I'm in no way affiliatted, I just happened upon it on craigslist and thought I'd share it's existence. Maybe all that's wrong with it is that it's up for sale for KBB and not actual value?

Dang! That's pretty cheap!

update

just went to sync my carbs & found the pull cable has snapped on the rear carb. rang the local fcr supplier in south oz no cables in stock & at $120Aud a set. ring the local shop they have cable inners but to large :(
so im up shit creek with no transport till its fixed.

Q: will the FCR's work ok with single cables IE: just a pull no push cables as the springs are quite strong on the fcr carbs.
its how i ran my stock modded carb on my XR630 just a pull no push cable with no dramas.

Hi
Just picked up a 06 950se and it is awesome. New to the KTM world, (leaving the xr650 thumper). Ive searched the sight and read a lot about the canisterectomy. Most threads are on 950a. Is this a must do on the se?

I am running pull only cables on my 950 FCRs and every other FCR bike I've ever owned, also my FI Burg. No worries.

thanks Navin
i thought they be ok just wanted to make sure. Ken H2W confirmed as well between emails when i was ordering a couple of cable sets.

nothing over this way in stock :( local b/shop chopped up what i had to try make some up & found they had no small ends like in the 1 into 2 junction box & i got stung $111Aud from them & ended up with a hand full of chopped up cables & a made up push pull cable set for a single carb :(

ended up as an expensive day

Ditch the stock exhust, they get super hot and weigh a million pounds. You can usually find some good used aftermarket or FMF's are affordable. Do the canisterectomy and SAS removal and pipes in one shot. Move the carb needles to the 3rd position and you won't believe the difference .
