plate holder

I broke my bracketr as well but got the replacement plastic for $18 from Elite in Loveland, Co. (great dealer!) I believe the 2010 has the slimmer light since there is no white light for the licence plate. I had to come up with a plate holder as well since I did not want to wrap my plate on the fender.
I do think that fender bracket is a weak point if you loop the bike very often... Next race, I will take the 5 minutes to remove the brace and light.

I think Lucas is correct but I think the picture has the light upside down.

Hey guys, I've got a 2010 FE390 that came with a Rekluse EXP clutch and the stock clutch. I tried the Rekluse but I just don't like it. I need to pull it out and re-install the stock parts. Any words of wisdom of how to get the nut off the inner clutch hub? I'm guessing that spinning it off with air is good but how do you guys lock the motor or do you?

Many than you's

The proper way is with a clutch holder to keep it from spinning. But never having one of those, I just use a strong bar of some type, through the spokes near the nipple so the spoke doesn't bend. That, in combination with clamping down on the rear brake will hold it. Same with retightening.

Problem Solved.

Turns out the issue with my 09 was the injector.

Looks like it was full of crap when I took it off ,,the new one came with a little sock type filter that goes into the little manifold that holds the injector into the throttle body.

Hopefully that will keep or delay this from happening again.

The thing ran like a champ as soon as the new injector went in.

The KTM rep told me about the inline filters, they should be available as a retrofit soon.

Use an impact and it should spin off easily.

Thanks
I've got a '10 FE390 that I've gone through a couple of fender extensions on. I had recently installed the '11 fender w/light & plate holder, to get the bike inspected. The four "wood" screws in back loosen up constantly, allowing the rear tire to eat the assembly. The fender extension isn't expensive, but it's a PITA to deal with.

What I've done now is to through-bolt the thing. I simply drilled through where those silly wood-screw things are, and replaced them with machine screws & locknuts. So far, no problems. This is with the turn signals installed as well.

I wrapped the screws with Teflon tape to give them grip and that seems to work.

Been available for a month or so, I think it is #78141013044, about $7.
