I'm glad you are OK as I recently learned how that feels.

As for the crashbars, I went down at 120 MPH with crashbars (not a tire blow out). I REALLY doubt the tank would have survived without them... Look at what remained of the lower part of the crash bar... I'm thinking without them, the tank would have leaked fuel while the bike was sliding on the pavement and with all the sparks flying around, the outcome for the bike would not have been so good... They DO crash well... (I agree with comments about the hard bags protecting the bike)



This is how (good) the bike was after sliding on pavement at 120MPH. Totally rideable (except for the fact the centerstand was bent and pressing against the chain)...

new/aftermarket parts

Hey Bert, when I had my crash last year I spoke to the shop manager at the dealership here. He had concerns about Insurance fraud, if they replaced parts with other than OEM. So he contacted the insurance rep, and explained that the parts I wanted to replace were better than stock and in most cases cheaper. He sold it to the insurance for me, allowing me to replace what I wanted, with the parts I wanted.

I don't think your crash and the OP's are comparable...yours was obviously while offroading... sliding on boulders is quite different than falling on asphalt...

Your bike indeed faired really well and if it hadn't tumbled it would look significantly better...

Bert - Just be glad you didn't hit a shady bicyclist like me. At least he "admitted" to being at fault after I smashed into him going 35. Hard to believe but I just got his statement from the Police. I am sure they had a giggle...

His Quote:
"I don't think it was the motorcycle fault - I thought I hads me a green light and then saw it was red and I triyed to stop but it was too late and he ran onto me" Hell I ran ONTO him alright....

OK, well then - we both gots us the street downs out of our system....

And...we both gots us new KTMs....

I actually took my Jacket to a seamstress and she hooked me up.

Jacket looks like new! $40!



new!

so this what did it no hole in the tire but there was a hole in the spoke cover thing and the tube looked like something was between the tire and the tube.


I can see some odd marks from the hole to the screw driver tip

Tire changed recently?

Not saying this is the case but rim strips and tubes can get damaged like that from a prying the tire on the rim if the tire iron is inserted too far or more likely slips in to far when levering on.

Did I read you had 32 psi in the front? I run 38 in the front for freeway speeds. Dealers advice and no issues in 20 k miles.
