Very sound list of mods and future mods Krumgrinder. Nice call of the Black Dog rack as I have been considering the rotopax mounts for extra fuel/water capacity for future long hauls.

A couple have me intrieged, namely the CJ oil drain hose kit and the Fuzeblock accessory switchable circuits fuse block. They both sound like useful mods....gonna have to go have read.

The Oil Drain hose is a Massive timesaver. Makes Oil changes a lot easier/cleaner/faster. I don't run enough extra electric items for the fuse block but I can understand the need. The rest of the list he posted is pretty good.

My top 5

1) Get rid of the hot and heavy pigs and go for 2 into 1.
2) Black Dog skid plate...'nuff said!
3) Seat Concepts tall seat (or Renazco, or....)
4) Gotta have power (under the tank plug)
5) Oil change relocation

Too many other things it needs like suspension work, new tubeless wheels, steering stabilizer, and better lighting; among other things. Oh, and don't forget to at least add some fuel capacity for any long journey.

Reliablity then comfort then personalize with your Riding style.

I'd first deal with some of the know issues to keep you from walking home and taking all the fun of riding the big KTM.

Sidestand relocator first and foremost as engine cases are expensive.

Replace clutch slave with aftermarket such as Oberon. Can loose your clutch any time.

Heated grips. No need to explain this one.

Better seat. Ditto to above.

A set of Akras as a gift to yourself just so you can hear the best sounding bike out there every time you hit that starter button.

My Mods/upgrades

I've been running a Woody's front wheel (A60) and a TUbliss setup for 2 years without a problem. A bit more effort to make sure the pressures are setup but after that you and lower the front without much concern for pinches. Nice thing is you get a rimlock as part of the setup.

I did:
- Blackdog skid plate (required if you ride offrad)
- Blackdog side stand relocator (required if you ride offrad)
- Remus 2 into 1 (saves about 15 lbs)
- Rottweiler filter & custom Tune (gain about 10 hp)
- Renazco seat
- Stillwell suspension (awesome)
- Removal of SMS & canister
- 45 tooth rear sprocket
- CJ rack
- CJ adjustable sidestand
- Sidestand switch removal
- Rekluse auto clutch (mixed feeling on this)
- High front fender
- Second power outlet
- Heated grips
- FP Folding Levers
- Moose Racing Handguards
- Woody's offrad wheel-set
- Woody's tubless "road" wheel-set

The Rekluse definitely makes the 990 easier to ride in technical off-road conditions - no more engine stalls either. I installed it after riding a rocky/technical section of the OBDR (The guy following me said he had never seen a 990 ridden like a trials bike ) and my impression was that this is a lifesaver. Totally transforms the bike. The only thing you need to get use to is limited braking with the engine. You can still use the engine to brake but sometimes you need to blip the throttle to reengage the clutch.

Everything was great until I attended a Jimmy Lewis Off-Road class. Now, I want more control over the clutch and I haven't been able to figure out how to do that with the Rekluse installed.

So, my mixed feelings are, the Rekluse clutch is great but with a little effort and training, not having the auto clutch may be better. The good thing is, it's only about 30 minutes to remove or install. I'm planning to remove it and go riding to see what I think. I may find that I still can't ride like Jimmy and just stick it back on. The other option I want to try is to back out the adjustment screw on the clutch slave to see if that gives me the control I'm looking for. This would be the best of both worlds - auto when you want it and manual when you what that.

BTW - On road the Rekluse is useless IMHO

Well...its been a while and a bit of a long winter, but I've managed a few upgrades to the 990. to date, I've got the Black dog kickstand relocator kit, Slavens skid plate, Rally Raid windscreen, Portaper 1 1/8 Pastrana bars with HDB Next gen hand guards w/ mirrors, sw motech crash bars and Acerbis supermoto universal front high fender, also a 16t sprocket, but Im waiting for riding weather as I want to ride it as is before I swap it out for comparison.

After all of this, I will be taking a big break from the Farkle-bus to consentrate of riding as much as possible this season. Once fall hits, I think I'll look at suspension and 2-1 wings exhaust.

- CJ oil drain hose kit- Got it, need to install.
- CJ sidestand height adjust mod w/big foot.- Not yet, waiting on CJ's shop to finish their big move!

After that, depending on availability of funds, not necessarily in this order:
- Superplush front suspension mods- springs, revalving up front- not yet, prob next fall/spring
- ECU cable and TuneECU software- got the cable, ready to start playing with this
- Barkbusters Storm handguards- on hold for now, stockers are holding up well so far
- Rottweiler intake kit- not yet, maybe early summer, w/new maps
- Euro headlight conversion w/HID- Nope- went w/new LED H4 replacement module (awesome) and amber LED W5W to replace (useless) parking bulb. Also picked up set of Cree LED, fork mounted aux lights w/dimmer.
- Pirelli Scorpion Rally front tire- Nope- went with a set of Heidenau K60 Scouts- really like these so far on the road, ready to get them dirty now.
- Seat Concepts (or similar) custom seat- not yet- probably before next multi-day trip, though
OK, long rough winter, didn't have a chance to get my portable garage set up before ice and snow came (early, dammit) so bike sat covered with tender connected for much of the winter. Also had surgery to deal with in Feb, but still managed to get rides in every month of the winter again! Plans changed a bit since my original post, but I've edited it above to show results.
