Hmm, yeah I forgot. Headed to the parts shop now. No gas in the tank yet.

I found the corrugated flexible line on McMaster Carr. The only difference is that it's clear instead of black. I eliminated the inline filter and quick disconnects entirely and it's much easier to change out the pump with out needing to stuff all the crap into the tank. 12" line was $14 as I recall.

Give Acme Rider Supply (local shop here in the Atlanta area a shout. I believe he's putting together a group buy on the Oberon Slave cylinder (he did some research and I guess determined this was the best thing going.)

Andrew (owner) is a great guy and an inmate on here. Highly recommended. (And no, I have no financial incentive for the referral, just a happy customer.)

Hope this helps,
Jeff

Looks like I will be reworking the fuel pump assembly tomorrow night. The parts place I deal with has to order in another piece of hose. That stuff is only sold in 12" sections. I need 2 to do the entire rework similar to what is in the WIKI. At least I get a good guy price.

The teflon line 55155K42

Even the submersible hose seems to get weak after a period of time, I wasn't please at all with it. I bought 5/16 cinch clamps and from my local parts store, an entire bag for $6

Anybody got some pics of their small rear turn signals installed?
I just could not bring myself to hang those OEM ones on the sleek Euro taillight assembly.
I run surface mount teardrops on my 525. They are supplemented with integrated Turn signal license frame.

I was thinking small stem style LED version for Ginger. Front & rear.
Yeah, changing flasher to LED style.
Where is that thing located, under seat or behind mask?

Spent a few minutes filing on my wedding band today. Forgot to wear gloves when welding up the sidestand. Wirefeed slag splatter all over it.
My welding SUX.
Anybody got 690R sidestand they want to sell.

Haha... does you rig have the capability to do gas? If so, make the jump. SO much more control.

I can salvage a side stand if you want to send it my way, no charge.

Here's a chopper license plate bracket I made...

I got some cheap LED ones from Motorcycle-Superstore. The flasher relay is behind the headlight mask.

Looks like it might be time for me to replace my slave cylinder. Doing a fresh bleed makes the clutch action so smooth and enjoyable for about a week, and then the fluid turns grey and the action goes to pot again...

I have been interested in the Sigutech slave, but was just turned onto the Oberon unit as well. Both look like they do the same job, but I was wondering if any of you guys have had any experience with the Oberon unit?

I've replaced my o-rings on my RFS bikes. I wish I could remember the number. I carry spares on the bike. Just in case it happens on the trail. Yes fluid too. Small Nalgene bottles work great for all the various fluids on a KTM.

The Engineer or Draftsman that came up with the wiring diagrams for this bike should be SHOT!
What a PITA to track down a circuit. Double the pages and no simple harness drawing that shows connector locations.

I need my double power readers to see the freaking wire colors. Sheesh!

I need a drink.

I would suggest the rear signals from SicAssRacing. You will probably only need to drill an 1/8" hole on each side for mounting, if no holes there already. Otherwise plug and play with KTM factory compatible connectors.

I would suggest not riding it anymore until you replace the slave cylinder. I made the mistake of going through the process you describe a few times, did not replace the slave, and the main bearing ended up letting loose on me causing thousands in damage. I now believe it was from the mineral oil leaking into the bearing. YRMV.

Unless you plan on riding off road. HDB rear signals are far better, I've had the same set on four different bikes and have had no problems.
