That's a great looking bike. What saddlebags are you running?

Bags look like Ortlieb's...?

Mount the license plate vertically.

Thanks, my bike has been good to me, yup, Ortliebs, great bags, they're 100% waterproof with 5 year warranty. The plate needs to be replaced, I just lined up existing holes on my new to me fender. Quick & dirty

Hi Droptarotter, Gunner, bmwktmbill and Tseta.

Thanks for your answers. I was already pretty sure, that the seal would cause no problems. Just wondered if there was a specific reason, they put that kind there... Ill try to keep my questions in the related threads.

Thanks for the info on the seals. It makes good sense to use the rubber covered model then. They're also easier to get hands on with short notice.

Yep I did the O-ring also. It was pretty f...ed, so was the spacer/bushing, so that was also renewed... I just used a standard O-ring though, as i've never had any trouble with them. And It's very easy accessible if it should fail...

These kind of forums are just awesome. So many people with so much useable information

That got me pulled over here in WV. Cop said it was not placed properly and he couldn't read it.
Me turning my head to the side and telling him to try that did not help.

The state, in it's infinite wisdom has decided that is impossible to read a license plate like that.
Even tho I see Harleys run them like that a lot

Floppy centrestand...

Does anyone know of a means to secure the centrestand on these bikes once they get moving? (LC4)

I'm finding it bounces around, to the ground, on G-outs and over rough terrain and is getting beat up. I'm on my second one ...

A simple setup that can be reached from the saddle (?) and not have a leash or something that might get into the rear wheel.

Any ideas?

The EXC's used to have a rubber band that held up the kickstand.in the early 00's.
Not sure if you can still get them?

Here's a part number you can try.

When I know there is a remote chance of me leaving the ground, I take a bungee cord with me and tie it up. When I landed from a jump once, I found out it had swung down on take off, the landing was center stand down, the result was my ass up in the air. Bent the crap out of it.

weep hole ....you know what i mean

ok , so the hole below the spark plug in the head ... is it just to let water out off the plug area .or is it like a warning to show the therostat has shat itself ? ( like a water pump does when its faulty) or is it just a hole .... im asking because im getting coolant at the hole , i took the thermostat off and the oring looks flat as , so im going to get a new one .... doesnt seem to be much on thermostats ( i did use the search function) so im guessing they are quite robust , everything i order for ktm .... 80% of all parts are coming from ktm austria , so i always have a 4-5 week turn around ....i can get stuff from the states in 2 weeks so wtf? .....
any way
cheers blair

That hole below the plug is just a drain for the spark plug well... To have coolant coming out of this hole shows a cooling system leak of some sort and it is running into the spark plug well... Either you have a hose leak or the little purge bolt on top of the head is weeping into the spark plug area... Worst case would be a cracked head...

Just so I do not repost, I have seen this my drain plug,

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=7627

and then in the middle of the race this happened,

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=7658

So... Any thoughts or hints of what should we take care in order to make sure that the engines does not destroy itself again ?
