Robin,

Consider experimenting with raising the forks in the triple clamps to help with the initial front end push. It has helped me quite a bit in my 950 wheel swaps.

I am running Emig 20mm offset triple clamps with a steering stabilizer on my bike and it looks like yours is stock so take that into consideration. Make small adjustments and test cafefully.

thank you.

Flug,

Welcome to Orange Crush! I love your great, "does your GS suck" thread over on GSpot. You are a fantastic writer. While we are on the subject; does my 950 suck?

I know the ebay feeling!!!
I might be interested in the disc deal. If enough UK crush members seem intrested they may drop the tooling charge. Very interested in the tyres as want a new set for my 17" rims, let me know what you think?

KTM 950 and "exploring" doesn't get much better than that.

Then things got interesting!

Which model of front fender is that ?

Ricky,

What's up with that right side handlebar clamp? I know you do your own custom stuff, but this one looks alot different. And whats the hose coming out of it connected to? Is it a tank vent?

And Ricky, also what is the clamp that you have mounted on top of the dash? I have the one that was mounted on your old bike when I bought it and never understood what it was for.

GPS mount of some kind?

Do you refer to the Mirror perch...!?!?


That is one of the best Tips ever, MAFM Post it even before the 950 arrive into the states and I got mine about 4 months before i got my first 950..



The part is available from the DUke II and is the best $7 you can invest on the 950.


Plus now the mirrors actually seat on the same plane, on the stock configuration the right mirror is about 40MM forward and 20MM farder outwards.

PLus as you can see on my Black bike the reservior mounted mirror broke off on a crash at least in this case nothing farder happend, like a broke master cilinder or a broken perch.

Cheap insurance I will say, really cheap insurance.

Yeah part of prototypes that I never got to produce for lack of capital.

lamme Pictures I know.


Flat, high and away.


middle of the travel, somehow angle.


Very low, very close and almost flat.


far and almost vertical.


tilted forward, for GPs like the V5.


It work somehow like this.


here is the whole photo gallery if you feel like looking.

oviuslly It work really well, very adaptable and stable, plus super flexible if you need to change "Modules" ussing the dowel sistem.


so you can change Plates in just a few seconds.


Who knows maybe someday i can finish my little dream.
