Camshift bearing bolts question

Hi All I need to replace my camshaft bearing support bolts when I go to replace my tappet buckets. They are rounded off (I didn't do it. That's now I found them !). The microfiche is hard to read. Could somebody verify the part numbers for me in the picture below. Thanks ! :) 4x 0912060255 AH SCREW ...

Re: Ignition wire problem

I put a monkey on it it's the key antenna. It's not physical (CRC won't work !). You'll have to split the cases and go in. Better than replacing the base gaskets :lol:

Re: Splitting the cases !

I totally agree regarding SMT reliability. Two points though. a) The support in Australia is S*ht. Something high maintenance (or above average), needs good support. It's not there. b) I only ride in winter. It's too hot in summer (Adelaide is probably similar to New York - we have extreme temperatu...

Re: Clutch problem

Luckily John Glenn didn't have KTM's bucket tappets in the Saturn V rocket otherwise he would have been rooted ! :lol:

Re: Splitting the cases !

Yes, linehand they are about $89AUD locally. What is the go with these ?. Buy these expensive buckets for them to fail again within 30000km ???. The KTM promise was the LC8 motor wouldn't need to be touched until 100000km. 10 years ago, when I owned my 2006 990 SD, there was a bloke at work that own...

Re: Parts needed - hopefully

Looks like mostly cosmetic damage. The worst damage being the handle bar. It doesn't look too bad. Is the front brake master cylinder damaged ?. Good to see you are recovering.

Re: Splitting the cases !

At this stage, I have replaced both base gaskets and discovered I have got two shagged intake tappet buckets on rear cylinder (bike has only done 37000km !). This has put a blow on by plan. I was hoping to have bike back on the road in 2 weeks. Now I have to order more parts from England. In two wee...

Re: Rusted/captive engine bolt nut

No worries Linehand. Once I get my bike back on the road, I'll do a big post up and a video so people know what they are getting themselves in for. All up parts pretty cheap (by AU/NZ standards).. about $400AUD for parts (including oil, fuel, filters, water pump servicing etc). I brought them from F...

Re: Clutch problem

Here you go Herb, it's a long thread, but it's all there (see below). If in doubt, it's a quick check you can do that won't cost you anything. I use a 0.5mm jet. The 0.3mm blocks too easy and when it does it makes the bike feel like I'm doing clutchless shifts. The blocking is temperature and oil vi...

Re: Clutch problem

Hi Herb. Two things come to mind:

a) Low oil/oil leak/air in clutch hydraulic system

b) Clogged clutch oil jet.

What size clutch oil jet are you running ? 0.3mm, 0.4mm, 0.5mm ?. What engine oil are you using ?. How hot is it in England at the moment ?

Re: Rusted/captive engine bolt nut

Hi Mate So far a 4/5 difficulty and would turn into a cluster fk doing this with no preparation (I planned this to death !). I did most it of myself except for the actual engine removal (a mate came around to help with that). The motor is now in the dining room. I'm in the middle of fastening it to ...

Re: Rusted/captive engine bolt nut

The nuts are copper nuts. They just looked rusted from the angle I was looking. So all good.

I've got my engine out at the moment to do the base gaskets and a few other things.

Re: Parts needed - hopefully

Sorry to hear that mate. Get well soon and hopefully you can get yourself and the bike back on the road. My bike is about to go into "hospital" next weekend - replace 2 x base gaskets, water pump seal, fuel pump, inspect some rusted/sussed engine mounts plus a few other things. I'll get to see if th...

Re: Conflicting methods using Tune ECU

Hi Mate. I've never heard of loading two separate maps. AFAIK, the map files configure the entire ECU system. Have I missed a step ? Map #20 is for the DNA MK3 air filter (P/N AK­KT9MK3­S3). Are you able to find a map for your air filter ? Also, is the oil filter too close to the intakes ?. Did you ...

Re: Would you change an SMT for a 1090 Adventure

I think KTM has lost the plot with dropping the 1000cc class. KTM's direction has lost me as a customer plus KTM Australia as an expensive/unreliable supply chain has ruined my customer experience. I will never get a bike > 1000cc. After owning two KTM V-twins, this will be by last. The good news is...
