What brand wheels are those? Lovely looking tard BTW!

[QUOTE=CoolHands;21493866]hi chaps

how do I fit the original mirrors? I've just bought a new (secondhand) bike - the previous owner never fitted the mirrors. I've just gone to do it, but the thread highlighted is bigger (maybe M10?) than the actual thread on the bottom of the mirror assembly (maybe M8?)

any ideas? Is there a collet or adaptor that's missing? (this is a smc-r btw)



a pic in case anyone wants to see it:

Can someone tell me how many links on a 690 enduro chain-with stock gearing. Cut mine off and threw it out before I thought to check. Trying to install the new one. Thanks in advance

Left hand thread-yes. Torque. I dunno. I don't use a TW for small bolts.
When I did my Cleanspeed, I did take some emery cloth to the bolt so it slid into the bearings easy. Also plenty of grease.
I recall putting some blue loctite on the threads.

Edit- Noted later by others there was a change to right hand thread in the later years.

Careful - depends on the year. 2011 is NOT a left hand thread

Oops, forgot about that-2012. And can't get a 10mm socket in the lower bolts and of course a # 40 Torx is the only one didn't have.

With the T-post in the original position, my handlebars are hitting the roadbook plate. Look at the pic below. You cant tell that the handlebars hit the roadbook plate but they do.
Can you add a spacer between the T-post and the RB plate? Looks like the mounting bolts are plenty long.

Damn.

After 5200miles with no problems of any significance suddenly I'm getting the backfire and stall issue - three times today, each occasion the bike restarted fine while I was still rolling in traffic (that bang sure scares the locals). Why now after so long with no problems? Looks like I've got a lot of reading to do in the Wunderfest.

The first thing that I would try is backflushing the injector, mine starting acting up at ~6200 miles and by ~6300 was unrideable, this fixed it:

If it does not do so, or it drips instead of sprays, (assuming you could feel the fuel line pressurize before hitting the starter) completely remove the injector and backflush it. The easiest way to do this (or at least how I have done it as instructed by a KTM mechanic) is to use compressed air. About 90psi through the nozzle will cause the injector to open and blast out any gunk that may have accumulated in the injector, back the way it came from instead of forcing it through the nozzle.

I use a small piece of fuel line (you can fill this short section of fuel line with carb cleaner if you like) attached to the nozzle with a hose clamp and the other end of the hose attached to my blow gun. If you put a paper towel on the inlet side of the injector while doing this it will catch any debris that comes out so you can inspect it. After doing this, reattach the fuel line and electrical and double check for a good spray pattern, if it is still not perfect just repeat the flushing process until all is well.

This has made my bike go from unrideable and unable to idle for more than 15 seconds, to running perfectly normal. All you have to do to access the injector is remove the seat and the airbox, so it is really easy and definitely worth a try.

I have a different RB plate, and it required adjusting the stops (yup, even further reduced turning circle, but not when riding) slightly. Also, you are missing the clamps to bole the plate to the horizontal rod. These will raise it a little more. Some further tweaks and adjustments and you should be good to go. Will post some pics of my setup when i get a chance.
