Cjdesign sells an oil jet with slightly larger diamater and most importantly it is shaped like a cone so rubbish falls to the side. The original is a completely different story. It has a larger diamater hole for catching rubbish to make sure there is some available to block the jet.

Further...... I met Craig and asked him why he thought my Rekluse might be shuddering. Oil jet! The clutch was also incredibly noisy. Pull in the clutch at idle and noise went.

Solved. Shudder gone and I've swapped Rekluse to new 990 and the older bike is no longer noisy.

Here is the photos of the 27,000 plus mile fuel filters:







Do you think I could have used them a little bit longer?

I've got about 52,000km on my original fuel filters. Just got my new ones from gefr in the mail. Just need to find the time to change them.

I knew I should have run them a little longer! I did know that water had gotten in my gas because the right drain hose was kinked and it rained a lot on the trip! I will make it a 20,000 PM on mine, plus carry spare filters. My replacements were from gefr as well!

Are you on the original Water Pump seal?

I suggest you PM your clutch master/slave cylinders.

The slave cyl tend to get a small crack. The later models have a larger ball in the piston, so forces distribute smoother but the clutch is harder to pull.
Some master cyl were reported to develop wear lately. This is not very often, but can be a pain.
Cheers.

Oil was leaking into the cooling system at around 10,000km. There were no signs of coolant in the oil though (no wavy oil filter). I did the water pump rebuild which solved the problem.

Mine was not leaking, but I changed the O-Ring a couple hundred miles ago.

I am thinking of changing the shaft and seal, but not the bearings. Mine is not leaking, but at 27,000 plus miles, I guess it is past due and I would rather not do the first one on the road.

Good info here.....Been seeing a few 950's and 990's with anywhere from 25k to 50k and I too was wondering how many miles before a rebuild. Soon I'll be seriously looking to downsize from 3 bikes to one, and pulling the trigger on a 950 or 990.

I can't compete for the high mileage award. But I just sold a 950 SM with 32k miles. WP at 12k. Fuel pump replaced at 15 without having failed. Valves still in spec.

Now an '07 990 Adventure with 35k miles. Just changed original clutch slave for a trip to Alaska--had not failed. Changed fuel pump and filters with GEFR parts--had not failed. Valves had moved only slightly 1-2 shim sizes.

My spares for long out of country travel would be:

Fuel pump and 2 sets of filters, clutch slave, brake rebuild kits, brake pads, WP kit...

FWIW

Why the brake rebuild kits?

The brake rebuild kits are cheap and don't take up much space. And they would be hard to outsource. I have freshened up a few on my KTM dirt bikes and on the SM. The scenario would be one where your brakes started to get spongy and wouldn't bleed out. probably not a catostrophic failure but i am sure you know that. From my experience the KTM brakes are no more or less prone to brake problems than any of the Jap bikes. Never had a BMW but some of them have brembo brakes as do the KTMs.

Don't read any big problem into my comment--just my thinking as to the kind of travel you plan.
