Issues with chewing up fuel pump o rings, issues with expansion so bad that I cant bolt the tank back on without help, too much weight in the front for deep sand riding.

Thats good to hear. From what I gathered, some tanks have problems, some dont wrt eating the pump orings.

I sold mine to a guy with a 950 so he was using the block off plate anyway and not concerned about o ring issues.

Here is mine, bought it two weeks ago,

07 990ADV with 5k on the clock for 8.5k. Not a rough and rugged pic I am afraid but they will come for sure. I see a TAT run in my horizon.

first post

Hello everyone,

I have been reading this blog for quite a while now. Don´t like to write much but I believe it´s time to introduce myself after learning so much from you all.

I´m a happy owner of a 990 adventure (this is my second KTM 990 adventure actually, had an orange one before). I live close to Madrid, Spain, and I love riding this beast. I have ridden these bikes for over 40000 km and never had a single mechanical problem with them. And every time I go riding, I still can believe what I can do with it.

Here is a pics of my beauty on my way home coming from work with the winter set-up (high fender).

Cheers

PS: Hope to contribute a bit more to this blog from now on.

My First Bike!

I thought I'd post a picture of my first bike. I waited 51 years to get this and it was really worth it. I can't believe how much fun I'm having! This 990 Adventure is all that I can handle at times, but I wouldn't want anything less.

I've been reading this site for several months and have even posted a couple threads. Just want to say thanks for all the great info and ideas.

Proud owner of an '07 KTM 990 Adventure!

the part which most people get to see most of the time
