Re: Base gasket replacement (both cylinders) - Pics

A few words on specials tools. All the head bolts can be accessed with a small 13mm socket, except for one. I brought a $22AUD 13mm 3/8" drive extension from TotalTools. I have a crappy torque wretch that is 20 years old and want to avoid changing the setting on the wretch all of the time. Bad torqu...

Re: Base gasket replacement (both cylinders) - Pics

Lifting the front cyl. As you can see, it just sits there. The piston is locked by the locking bolt (a special tool that locks the craft shaft). 10_head_removal.jpg You remove circlip from one side only. There is a small recess/notch in the cylinder barrel where (presumably) KTM's special tool is se...

Base gasket replacement (both cylinders) - Pics

This is a post about my base gasket replacement (both cylinders). A video will come later (particularly torquing and circlip install). For now, some pics. Engine was bolted to a heavy 2nd hand coffee table. I'm glad I did this. The engine is able to sit on a flat surface by itself, but it is top hea...

Water pump impeller - destructive removal (60035055100)

Sweeta*serapingjesus I had to end up CUTTING my impeller off using a Dremel because the factory had glued it completely on. I tried wiggling, heat, taping, percussion for 2 hours in order from gentle to rough. It would not budge at all. When I serviced my SD's water pump ten years ago, it had a bit ...

Re: Splitting the cases !

Hi P. 66k is very good. Mine is 37k. I'll try to get that video out, but I've got a big interstate job coming up and I'm getting smashed at the moment. I'll get my water pump finished, then I'll start work on the video and pics. Watch this space. Everything wants to fit down a 1/2" pipe in my life a...

Re: Splitting the cases !

However, the other side of me is saying keep it and get a DR400SM as the spare bike !. The SMT can be in bits on the kitchen table all winter then :lol:

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: 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...
