Re: Topcase causes the subframe to break..!!

Not sure if my sub frame is failing but I have one of the tell-tale cracks on the right side. http://imgur.com/AS68MYV Not sure how long it's been there. I use a top box but I believe I've not overloaded it. I weighed my typical load because of this thread. Cursory inspection of the sub frame did no...

Re: Repair manual

Very unhappy. I ordered the KTM Repair Manual (Item Art. No.: 3.206.160) covering the 950/990 Adv/S/R, 990 Super Duke/R, 950/990 SuperMoto/R/T and 950 Super Enduro R. I specifically ordered the manual to have a wiring diagram for my 2011 ABS model SMT because I want to tap into the speed sensor cir...

Part number is now 3.206.160

Try googling it. Many places in the US sell it for under $30.

IIRC, the connector that plugs into the gauge cluster has pin 19 empty.

Re: What did you do to your ktm today?

Found a coolant leak at the water pump cover so I dropped it off at the stealership for repairs under warranty. Mine just started doing this a month or so ago as well. Will be replacing the water pump cover o-ring shortly and replacing the hose clamps as they have leaked as well during previous win...

Re: Rear light concerns

On another note regarding the rear tail light. Just noticed while cleaning the bike the tail light has significant play in it. Not side to side, but up and down. It feels like it's secure in the middle and the wiggle room comes from pivoting on center bolts. But again it's a brand new bike and coul...

Re: Fuel cap increasingly difficult to remove/insert, 2011.

Mine's now had the warranty claim dealt with for the filler cap problem, and the fix is a new fitting for the tank, rather than a change to the cap itself. The black triangular bit at the opening has been replaced with a silver one with a bigger aperture, and the problem's completely gone. Good to ...

DIY Can Idea

The stock cans seem to be 120mm OD. PJ Engineering sells 120mm ID carbon tubes for £42.

Why not chop the ends off the stock muffler and rivet them to a carbon tube? Add a perforated tube £12 and packing £10.

Re: Rear light concerns

Hardest part of the install was taking apart the tail section of the bike to get at the wiring. I was able to do it pretty easily by just pulling the carbon cannister and related parts out of the way and using a long socket extension to remove the tail light. From there I unplugged and disassembled...

Yep, that's it. Looks like a good price. SportingWood sells it for $108 when using "ADVRider" discount code.

Re: Potential SMT owner with a few questions

1) Shouldn't be an issue for some time to come. 2) To me that analogy is a comment on the bike's emission-driven lean fuelling that makes it feel abrupt where you want the bike to be smoothest. This behavior is most noticeable in first and second gear around 4k. Any competent tuner with LC8 experien...

SuperDuke's light is different. SuperDuke 61014040000 Supermoto 58614040044 I've looked at my brake light from about 20 feet back with the brake lever zip-tied and thought it was pretty good.

Re: Replacement for SMT?

I look forward to what else Yamaha does with this motor.

What I don't like about the MT09 is that a center stand looks impossible to fit let alone top box or panniers. Time will tell if the aftermarket devises a solution for hard luggage.

Re: Cheap air box that works

Try map #18 + 2%, also fit 1 X RC8 stack on the front cylinder & a standard stack in the rear cylinder & the bike will pull harder up top, the torque power band will be spread wider across the rpm range. Great. I have the RC8 up front already. Expecting a call back this evening from the tuner to se...

Buttoned it up with an RC9 stack on the front cylinder and loaded map 18 with +4 although I have stock cans. Took the bike out for a quick spin and it feels really smooth in the 3-4k range. I'll be contacting our local tuner guru this week for a custom map. +4 will be to rich with standard cans. Re...

Kevtx, you had mentioned the need for a 15 mm coupler to mate with the K&N breather filter which my kit did not include. Why wouldn't I just mount the K&N directly to the check ...
