Did the water pump and a service.

I did the water pump on my 950 adv S today using this link http://www.ktm950.info/how/Orange%20...ater_pump.html and found it great. Got the parts from the part numbers in the link and followed it step by step. Spot on and it was gratifying to be working on my own. I also carried out an oil change for the first time. Chufted with myself.

Nice. I suspect I'll be doing the water pump service myself some day as well. Any issues getting the bearings/seals to seat properly (ie. straight?) That's the one area of those instructions that seems dicey... at least without a machine shop full of highly specialized tools at my disposal.

What did your water pump shaft look like? Noticeably worn in areas? just curious. Either way good job man...

Wow! this bike is almost at its original condition. An 04 that still has the SAS on it.
Make sure all the factory TB's were done on it. Most important would be the head nuts.

Have it there so I'll get a picture of it tomorrow but looked pretty much like the one in the link.

I've 27600 kms on my bike and the seal on my cover had started to leak but everything else looked serviceable to be honest. Their was corrosion on the housing and the mating service. Cleaned it all off and thankfully it's all good.

The bearing fell out with a small tap and the new ones when back in with a small tap to help it on its way. Very easy though.

I ran the chassis number with KTM before I bought it and all recalls except for the rear break one think it's a seal or diafram. They said they'd cover it so it will be going into them soon for that.

Didn't know anything about the SAS but have looked it up there. Maybe something I'll do another time, but for now I'll leave it be.

I proudly received my SAS block off plates and plug today.
Like yourself I looked to wiser men for guidance.
In the H.O.W. I found this peach of advice...

I see no reason to disable the SAS on the 990's.

D'oh.
Do I block them as I've bought them or do I leave it ('06.5 EFI) as is??..

Wanna buy an SAS block off kit for your 950??

To be honest I love how the bike rides as is, so not sure I would be interested in the SAS removal. I had concidered a complete air intake change if I can find someone who can tune it after fitment so might look at it then but for now I'm happy out.

Here you go. The two brown/rust grooves are wear marks an the area that the oil seal sits. They can be felt with your nail when you scrape it across them.

Finished putting it back together today. Delighted with the jobs I got done. Changed out the bulbs on the rear. Bleed the breaks, checked a few other things to make sure all was good. All set for the Paddy Dakar Saturday week.

Wow yep looks like by the state of that shaft it was definitely time for a water pump rebuild - good news is you got your money's worth out of the old one... Nice work
