Re: Better late than never

Let me know the condition of your buckets. I doubt there will be an issue. I had issues with mine, although I suspect they got swapped at dealer :x. The next major, I'm going to drop the motor again and give them another inspection.

Re: Do you know DOMINATOR exhaust

Sounds like my Quill exhausts. Heaps of quality control issues. I ended up using the EOM brackets and using rubber and silicone as spacers. Do a search for Quill exhausts if you're interested in seeing my solution.

Welcome Still :). I would also inspect the tappet buckets if it's done more than 50k for piece of mind.

Re: SMT990 ABS Bleading the rear brake

Thanks GhostMile. Your tip removing caliper and making bleeder highest point worked a treat :D Ogden: Your tip bleeding at the ABS unit did not do anything. But thanks for the thought :) PS/ Took my bike for a test ride (in the hills) after the service. Holly fark, what a difference. The rear brake ...

Re: 2012 SMT DASH PANEL SPEEDO FREAKING OUT

That's an interesting one. I know my cluster is quite flakey. If I power on bike, then switch off the bike before cluster has time to do it's needle sweep, it sometimes forgets it's time and trip meter readings. Plus the temperature is incorrect for a few seconds. I'll keep that in mind not to flatt...

It is very narrow space and sometimes one has to "grease" them with soap water to make it fit.
Mechanical engineers call that an "Interference Fit" :)

Ok, no worries :)

Re: SMT 990, Too much oil..

Most dealers over fill these oil tanks after a service (particularly for the first 15000km) because the bike burns a lot of oil when it's breaking in. As a general rule, I don't over fill it - no more than half way.

Re: SMT Perishing clutch line - Aftermarket replacements ?

Ok, so I got around to buying and fitting this clutch line. I had to wait a few months for the supplier to get it in. 1.jpg The part was from 100moto.com.au (Magura OEM) and 60% cheaper than the KTM rebadged Magura part (basically the same thing). The old line went through the guts of the ECU and ma...

On my bike it's black (I physically checked that it was the O2 on my bike). They must have changed connector colours for the 2012 model ?

Re: Interesting result.

I disagree. I wanted to keep up SMT stock for legal/inspection reasons, but the stock throttle response was beyond horrible. Especially at the test emissions rev range (4500 RPM). Yes, I agree about the weights and balances benefit.
