Lathe tooling

It is called a Follow Rest. A steady rest has three adjustable pads/bearings/rods that support part w/o the tailstock/dead center or live center. My $.02
Your work is elegant and cutting up expensive parts takes huevos!

Oops... I'll fix that. Thanks for clearing that up.

Here is the Lathe that we've been using in the shop for the last year. I looked over a few other brands and found that Grizzly Industrial Inc offered a great Starter package at a fair price. I'm very happy to have been able to add this to the shop and it's been a very useful tool to complement the CNC. It's holding up very well and I may add a Digital Read-Out to it next year.

I don't have a 950. I don't even have a KTM. But the engineering involved here is geeking me out. Subscribed!

I'm thinking of the digital readout too

Seeing as how not everyone following this thread has a 950/990. The guts may be a bit unfamiliar.

This is what the frame looks like w/ the bike "Ready to Race", minus the tank.


To get the most volume out the available area the OEM tanks are designs to fit inside the frame rails. Great use of every nook and cranny, but I'm sure also part of the reason these cost over $1,500 a side.

I have a set of aftermarket Aqualine tanks I purchased from Justgastanks.com I've had these on the bike for a few years now and have come to like the extra range. Clear is great to see your actual level of fuel while on the bike. Nothing beats your own two eyes to let you know when you are getting low, or you have enough to keep exploring down that new trail.

They are also much cheaper than OEM. You can get the set for the price of one OEM tank.

They are designed the same way to fit inside the frame.




Trying to keep costs down I will attempt to "Reuse" either my OEM tank from the "Burn Bike", or the Aqualine.

I also need to keep the placement of the new hardware in mind so as little modification to the tank is needed. Fuel leaks are BAD.
