He sure did, jump to 1:20 for some XR torture:



But part of the problem could have been that the intake valves had given up and as I understand they are only surface hardened so once that is worn out they are quickly very far out of spec and tight valves should open less and less fuel/air leaner and hotter running and that in combination with a throttle happy 60+ year old man = badly burnt piston!

That is what I think happened, well its being rebuilt also, having some issues with the work done to the valve seats so going to get a second opinion about them before I button that engine back up.

Back to the Adventure I have not fully figured out the front brake, was not happy with the previous brake hose routing and will try going down to only one front rotor.

And to get full coverage of the 320 extended suspension I will go with a high fender and normal fork protectors if I can get them to fit.

But then I would like to go with just a single brake hose like the old 950 had on the left side, just worried that buying that hose for an old S model will still be to short, have looked at some smaller KTM enduro models but from what it seem they have straight banjos at both ends while the Adventure have a 90 degree banjo up by the brake pump.

And since they have that stiff cover along the lower part of the hose Im not sure it would be easy to get something done in a custom length?

Since I will be going for a single disc on the front end I plan to go with a dirt bike style brake hose going down one fork leg but the speedo sensor would need to be longer, but knew the old 950 had that style and a longer sensor so took them both off to swap them:



Should be all ready soon, looked like a super early spring here in Sweden but its cold now lets just hope we don't have any setback with more snow.

A little more work and one fork guard is in place:



The other side might be harder.

Looking at that it appears you have the longer suspension and the guard is struggling to provide coverage up top at full extension.

Yes its a full 320 mm Pyndon monster suspension that is the reason Im going for these, looks the same as on the smaller enduro bikes with the same fork guards.

Actually like the look of the low fender but as it is these will provide better protection.

Should not be a problem as while riding the SAG will allow a few centimeters of travel to be consumed by bike+rider weight.

True but if Im confident that the front wheel will be up in the air every now and then and allow for full extension =)

Had the low fender on the 950 and the dustcover was hit, now the old low fender is not as rigid as on newer bikes:



Solved that with a bracket stiffening up the fender:



But since going with a single caliper it feels better going this route.

Ground away some of the fork clamp for the other leg this evening since its a threaded lump not being used and it was in the way. But forgot to take pictures, will come some later.

Anyone here that can direct me to a yellow front fender? Preferably a motard style? And bolt on to the bike would be nice not having to do something custom with it, enough work with the fork guards and brake hose.

Some Husaberg model might have something fitting that description?

Or if I cant get hold of something like that with short notice I will probably go with a cheapo black one I can get hold of localy, but will need to order some prats so would like to get a yellow one if possible.

Cheers!

Looks like a good option, anyone know if its a bolt on solution?

Would have preferred some Husaberg since I think they can be ordered from the same place as I order KTM parts.
