Kevlar textile? Or what do they call it in english? Quilt?

Have discussed the problem with a friend and he said stainless is a poor heat conductor compared to steel.

Are bolts stainless? That would help keep the bolt temperature down especially if having a "heat sink" in the form of stock shield.

There are ceramic washers but they are hard and brittle and won't work on a counter sunk bolt. But there is some heat resistant "cloth" that can be cut into washers that might help isolate carbon from direct contact with the bolt.

Solution about bolt burning up pants might be some kind of cover over the bolt head but need to find some solution how to mount that to the carbon shield.



Suspension worked plenty good but was not able to bottom it out so must look at making it a little softer, need to swap springs in forks (have them), worried I would benefit from a softer rear spring also and some dialing in the knobs.

Need to stop being lazy and start riding more.

It is kevlar textile. I thought you could lay up some heatresistant.

ahh the 320mm suspension is the second thing to do when my project engine is done.

Have tried adding that piece of hose I skipped during install of the CPR filter to try and reduce goo around rear cylinder:



But as others said it is impossible (at least very hard) to get filter in place then since its a stiff hose and it is so close to the filter cage and cant go anywhere I skipped the hose clamp and it was possible to get filter in place properly:



Have not had time to ride it enough to evaluate if its any better yet.

Been using the old 950 to and from work but ran into trouble with that one also.

Went by gas station today and at a line of red lights while idling it boiled on me spewing coolant all over my boot.

At last red light I noticed 6 bars on temp gauge ...never seen more then 5 before so felt for fan, NO fan, but just got green light so took off by it went up to 7 with warning light just as I took off but kept riding the 2 km back home and it went down to 6 bars before turning it off.

Expansion bottle was almost full, pulled contact on radiator and with that shorted out fan starts so seems sensor is dead.

Is there any good replacements? Any car that use the same sensor? No local KTM dealer so will be a little while before I have enough to justify an order (waiting for one from Germany that for some reason was returned but talked to them today and they will try to send it again and this time I will follow the tracking better).

If it cools down and not drain the expansion bottle completely will I still need to bleed air out of coolant system?

Installed the SE brake master today but did not have time to try it out was dark by the time we finished in the garage and took the 950 back home and after plenty of tries the high beam fired up.

Ended up investing in a 4 pot caliper and a 320 mm disc also that I recieved today, price was right so will see if that will fit later on, quick visual check looks promising.

EDIT: Might also add that with low fuel light on 3rd gear 110 KM/H a little pull on the handlebars and health dose of throttle and front wheels lift right up =)

4-pot caliper will be a winter project but bought since price was right:



Would also like to fit some sturdier quick disconnect for the fuel in the future what would be the best replacement?

Jiffy Tite?



CPC? and if something like this is available in the correct size with a nut a small bracket to hold it in place on the frame might make it easier to push the other connector from the fuel tank in place?



Thoughts?

Found out that the new radiator sensor for the 950 came with an O-ring so had not needed to order one, well hope it gets the fan working properly, tried to change it fast and did not loose much coolant:

Well a CPC brass fuel quick connect is ordered.

4-pot caliper seems like a NO go with 21 inch wheel =(

Well new rear tire in place a t least:



And both are 140 wide TKC 80, one on a stock rim the other on a narrow 2,5 inch wide rim.

Have recieved my IR thermometer now also and done some tests on exhaust heat, did it by running bikes hot parking, getting gloves and helmet of as fast as I could with bike idling and then measuring:

950:



Bolt on heat shield:



Heat shield:



990R:



Rear bolt on heat shield:



Heat shield (not sure how much difference since EMS setting is 0.80 for steel):



So conclusion, front cylinder bend seems to run hotter on the 950 compare to the 990 but further back the 990 runs plenty hotter.

Will do some more measuring trying to measure the rear header also, could the front run stupidly hot and rear OK? Temperature gauge is on rear cylinder.

Johan, It might be that the 990's readings on the header are not accurate due to the header being considerably cleaner than the 950's one. This affects the emissivity ratings

Get some mud on it and you might find the results change.

Thought I had seen someone make it work with that caliper on here. Will look at it better when I get back home. In jokkmokk right now did a 400 km gravel/trail ride yesterday.

Lots of fun.

Had another 990 here also and was able to measure some heat on that also. Pictures of both the ride and measurements later when I get back home.

The 990 pipe will look worse in a few years =)

Compared with another 990 and temperature near cylinders are similar but by heat shield mine is plenty hotter!

My wings cans are for sure cooler then his stock cans.

Pictures will follow might not have time tonight feeling quite worn after the riding Saturday and spending some time today playing with a friends kids, they are 2 and 4 and think Im a human "jungle jim".

So was able to get some pictures uploaded.

Did pull the plugs before heading for the riding in the Jokkmokk area, rear spark plug:





Front spark plug:





And some temperature readings, first off my friends 990R (cleaner header then the 950 so should be less difference cause of baked dirt).

We did similar riding, was few 100 meters were slow riding to a gas station, bike were both turned off at about the same time, measured my friends bike before mine:









And then the same readings from my bike:





On the shield itself:





Also did a measurement after a slow riding climb up a hill, fan running (on my bike at least).

Then the bolt holding the heat shield were cooler then the shield itself on my friends bike.

On mine the bolts themselves were plenty hotter then the carbon heat shield so my suspicion that the shield works as a heat sink are probably true, might have to call the carbon unit a bust and go back to metal (will still cut it so it will be possible to remove header without undoing heat shield).

Interesting last 70 km ride in darkness with NO lights today.

Took the 950 to a friend did about 1000 km when it started being dark enough that high beam was needed I tried to get it going the hid have had trouble for a while with it blinking but turning on and off a few times usually gets it going.

Today everything died except indicators.

Suspecting switch under key? Could that be it?

Tried turning on and off a few times ... No luck :-(

Got to destination turned bike and on and all of a sudden it works again.

Have looked further into the electrical problem today everything was dead again but after fiddling with stuff for a while for no real reason brake light have started working?

Tried cleaning ignition switch and light switch but when getting hold of a tester I have NO power by the 15 amp fuse in the holder?

Will try to get electrical schedule and see what to look for next.
