rusted SE spokes

I do have around four front wheel spokes that are rusted/lightly pitted
I use "flitz" metal polish to bring it up to luster and remove rust, but with time grow back up like fungus. Bike is stored in my work underground parking and bike is covered, so there is no humidity nor sea water spraying.
Bike has never been in rain nor mud, and consider myself a "weird one"
but if i ride it in dirt dirt,i use a cotton rag to clean it.
It has never ever been washed nor water has touched the bike, only cotton rag, maxima or honda plastic spray polish, flitz on metal and armour all. SO it does not make sense on how some spokes "pitted and rusted"

Steering stem bearings - notchy steering

There are definite tight spots in the steering on my SE, binding and then releasing when turning the bars... Pretty disconcerting.

Anyone else have this problem on their SE?

Need steering stem bearings?
My other bike had a cog-wheel regidity as a result of steering stem bearings.

Are the 690 and 950se rear suspension intrechangable?

Anybody know if the mounting points measure the same on the 690 and 950? Wanting to mount a sno-track kit on my SE but no fit-kit for the SE only the 690. Thanks

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?

I participated in two day-long motorcycle orienteering events during last month and both time had similar problems.
Bike runs just fine until suddenly it will not start anymore like battery has run out, relay only clicking or very slowly turning engine. After I got it started with the help from another bike, it runs fine again and I can start it like 15min after this has happened and no signs from weak battery.
Both times have been quite cold, +10...+15C and rainy, a lot of mud and water. Any hints, what can cause this problem? Weak electrical connection somewhere?
I use my bike for daily commuting and it runs fine again, no problems I am aware off, power is ok and fuel consumption also reasonable.
Something similar happend to me as well.esp after water crossings.
I''ll check the side stand sensor on mine.

I finally managed to check my bike last weekend and discovered faulty regulator/rectifier - voltage went up to 17V, this probably killed battery after few hours of riding. Also first connection after ignition lock was corroded - one pin was greenish color, I cleaned that also.
I hope I found cause for my problems.

Quick question: Where is the best place to get a set of supermoto wheels for this beast?

Quite liking the SE right now, thinking a set of good road wheels might get me some extra shop space...

You want Cheap ? or Good ? Ya cant have both at the same time .


Warp 9 are OK , I have 2 sets for XR's , the break spokes some of the time for no reason , if money is an issue , well then go for it ,

Otherwise , get ya a set of Talon on Excels , or something on stock Hubs ,

Woodys here does that , Try KSR wheels . Keith is a good guy to work with ,

I just dont know if I would put Warp 9's on a 100 hp+ machine .

Jetting for the CPR filter

I just ordered the CPR Rottweiler from KTM Twins and need to know what jets to use. I made the mistake of ordering it online without researching it first.




Edit: I cancelled the order and just went with CJ designs. So, I got the jet kit with the CPR and Stacks as a package. Now that's what I'm talking about.
