I have to do a head gasket repair this spring. I suspect it may be possible to remove the head with the engine in the frame. However, it is also not that complicated to remove the engine from the frame and it makes it so much easier to work on. It also gives you an opportunity to get in there and clean and repair any wiring etc.

Not that I have done it, but I was also thinking that you would run an additional risk of some sort of debris (dirt etc.) falling from the frame etc., down into the engine while working.

Feel free to chastise me if I am way off base.

Considering it again this morning I think it may not be possible to pull the cam with the engine still in the frame, so that means the engine will have to come out.

Thanks!
Yes you can. I think we only had to remove/loosen the radiator.

Yeap . Once the air box is removed, It takes an extra 15 minutes maximum to pull the motor out of the frame ... Non-sens to repair it "in place".

Still trying to track down a reasonably priced Hardparts dealer in Canada, as KTM won't let US dealers send up our way. I am beginning to realize that KTM and Reasonably Priced may be mutually exclusive in Canada.

RIP Beaney

I'm late to hear the news. I, too, am another beneficiary of his dedication to solving a problem. Godspeed.

You already had to take off the charcoal canister.. might as well do the rest.

The PO had already done the canisterectomy. SAS is still on. I'll pick up a a resistor and remove it. T Other than being unnecessary - any benefits from removal?

Seems to run better. That could be placebo effect though

My soft luggage is scratching up the sides of my (stock) tank.
I was thinking that some decals should fix that problemo.
I've seen the Rally Raid tank decals. I don't have the RR set up, so it would look kind goofy on mine. Nice looking bike, though.

Anyone know who else makes them?

The decal I'd like to have are below this dinky ascii arrow (it says: "Rally Raid" and "cpl"):
