I had a Honda once but every time I stopped another Honda guy would try to F$%^ me in the A$$....sold it the next day. When they say "you meet the nicest people on Honda's", I didn't know thats what they meant



I was wondering what all these bikes were doing at the rest stop!

So do I 2 Spot, that's why I hit on this thread and took a look...

When I saw the title of the thread 'SUPERMega Crazy", I figured, it would be a great place to see some KTM porn. Maybe something like this, but in bike form...



But, instead...I found this...




Well, I've learned something from this thread...Like CS said, if you own a KTM, you better have other bikes to ride...for when you have to work on the KTM. I guess I'll keep my XRR. I got a feeling, if a ever buy a KTM...I'm going to need that extra bike.

I'll stop back in about 4 to 6 months from now. Maybe, by then, the SUPER part of this Mega Crazy thread will be happening.

I guess for now, getting it to run right. Is a SUPER idea...

Weak. How about you put your money where your mouth is?
Care to put a wager on the table? Not $20 either.... We can throw insults across the internet all week but nobody is going to lose teeth or money. Lets fix that!

Thanks for the pic Beany! Interesting.... I was thinking of adding a seat support to my brackets, looks like they covered that already.

Now, now CS...you have waaaay to much work to do. Don't lower your standards, just for me.

Next time your in the Phoenix area, look me up. I'm not hard to find, I don't believe in the cute little names that most inmates use.

Oh, by the way...I never insulted you (I would rather do that fun stuff, in person). I just questioned the quality of a ten thousand dollar dirt bike, that doesn't run right. I was very surprised...

nice, gonna watch this thread for sure! love the MS!

when i converted my '63 Galaxie to EFI people laughed, scoffed, said it wouldn't work, said stuff like "why not just run a bigger 'carb son?" you know, kinda like your thread here.

then when i got more power, 20MPG and a smooth, quiet trouble-free ride, they all disappeared.

funny how that works.

Just got the word that the 690 made it to bean town... let the wiring begin!

Since the 690 is under the knife, I decided to send the 690 Seat to Renazco racing for a much needed re-do. Taller, a bit wider and a small change in the way the front attaches. After riding the 950 SE last year at the MX1K with a Renazco seat, I promised myself I would get one for the 690. The last thing you want to worry about down there is a sore ass Long days in the saddle down there!

Thanks for all the input, much appreciated, even the negative ones..... they generate a good buzz and get people all wound up
