I think you will find a Spot useful for the purpose of allowing your family to know where you are at all times. The "Spot" device has a "help" button for dire emergencies.

I use Wolfman soft luggage, specifically the Expedition saddlebags and large duffel. I bought their racks, including the reinforcing bar that goes between them, so I could add Roto paks for fuel or water and they seem very sturdy, although I haven't had anything but the bags hanging off of them. I really like the Wolfman saddlebags; they roll up nice and tight and are waterproof. I don't believe that the Giant Loop is waterproof, but I may be wrong about that.

The last time I attended I won Tennessee State Championship in Service Rifle classification. Also recall something to the effect of "Boomsday" fireworks event not too far from there. Sorry if I got the name wrong but HOLY COW those folks know how to put on a fireworks show that beats all I ever saw!!!
Thank you for the greeting and invite.
Nice! I'm from very close to there but live close to Nashville now. I used to shoot ALL the time down in Oakridge!

I'm glad you got to see how us east TN folk blow stuff up ... Boomsday is correct sir.

Be sure to give me a shout if you come through. We would love to have you! I will soon have a garage (and a guest bedroom ) and I can help with any maintenance you require... good luck my friend. I'm subscribed and I hope you get up this way sometime.

Man it must be a small world.

I shot on the Oak Ridge High Power Rifle team for years until I went to college. My dad still shoots with them. If you shot on the USMC team back when Top Corely was running it you shot with me.

Big Ed's is still as good as ever. His son Paul was running it last I heard.

Just wanted to say that your initial entry was so well written you may consider something in book form. Didn't read the whole thread and not sure if that has been already suggested.

Spare Connector PDF

Hey,


this ( http://dl.dropbox.com/u/10302211/KTM_connectors.pdf ) might help. I ordered a couple of plugs from that pdf from the local KTM dealer - just gave them the code.

Good luck!

Alex

WOW! The satelite coverage map is pretty impressive with that service. With the exception of southeastern Africa, India, and the further southern regions of SA, comm looks good.
Same company; I was actually talking about this: http://www.findmespot.com/en/index.php?cid=102

So it looks like you have a couple of options!

My buddy that I ride out west with has one; it's a nice tool for peace of mind. If he didn't have it, I would!

Top Corley's wife and I use to converse in Tagolog which I learned from Phillippino Marines while on Barracks Duty in 1983-1984 at Subic Bay.
Yeah, Top Corely and his wife were extremely nice to me. I met them at Quantico when I went through a clinic.

I was on the Oak Ridge Team between 1997-2002. I think I might know the WO you're talking about. I remember there was one Marine that came over to my rifle when I was on the 600 yd line, picked it up on the muzzle and pistol grip, flipped the safety on (with a magazine block and a flag in the breech, and then not so gently let if fall back over.

"That rifle should be on SAFE at all times when you're not shooting!"

Now at this time I was an 18 year old Master class shooter in both x-course and long range, won a national Palma award, and was supposed to shoot with the US Junior Palma Team in England until Nancy Tompkins-Gallager screwed me out of that deal. Plus, that was MY rifle that my dad and I had literally built from the barrel up.

"Well, Sir, if you can figure a way for the bolt lugs to close and lock or a way to get a round in the chamber, I'll keep it on safe between each shot."

He and I didn't get along after that. Another younger Marine came up while I was talking to Grant Singly (USAMU), pulled me aside, and said "Don't' mind him. He's an asshole." I know that's just his training, and I would keep it on safe after that, but when he came over and did that without saying anything to me while I was right there putting on my jacket it just struck me wrong.

That guy wasn't there the next year....





Good luck on your bike build. I've got a few spares, nothing big, but if I can help in any way let me know.

Yep. I thought his name started with an R.

Hate to see you cut the frame. It'll be worth it in the end.

Do you happen to know where the same resource for a 2008 might exist? The '08 ECU requires an additional ECU plug not shown in the one you provided. I had given up and thank you for showing good signs that such a resource might be available!!!

Enjoying your journey. Especially this-
Piloting a bike with its disperate focus awakens clarity, perhaps the wind shews the clutter. I am drawn to it, and inspired to share the ride, and especially watch others. In a little way gregarious again, marveling at the profound experiences of nearly everyone whom I meet here. Its like a whole new clan. Teach me more.

That should be the ADVRider credo. We all know it, but may not be able to express it so succinctly.

Keep it up.....

While I'm enjoying the tear down, I like many others here I'm sure, eagerly await the pictures you'll paint of the ride to follow! I hope you'll enjoy Neil's version of the journey in his books...I did. Good luck

Alas neither of the ECU or "Digital-box" connectors are shown in the above PDF.
Zip-ties might keep that connector on, but given the arrangement, it might prove an awkward and unreliable short-cut.
Still searching for the late model ECU large plug on the left

Hmm...



Perhaps "000700000CO SPARE CONNECTOR CO 34-PINS" is what you are looking for?

This connector is included in both the 2004 and 2008 spare connector part catalogues.

Cheers,

Tseta

P.S. The 2008 catalogue does show the "AO"-connector as well, 000700000AO SPARE CONNECTOR AO 26-PINS X
DIGITALBOX (LC8) (page 1).

No problem, glad to be of help.

The color-coded picture is a crop from the wiring diagram, that is found in the back of the service manual. Your KTM dealer might be able to sell you one, or you might find a copy floating around the "dark corners" of the web.

(Posting links to said corners is a big "no-no" around here so sorry, can't help there...)

Cheers,

Tseta
