Hi 'Bug' I´m sure you can solve the problem to translate the German language to English, using Google translate. Otherwise, just send them an e-mail and ask kindly what you want to know.

Re: 990 Power Commander 5 & Tune ECU custom maps

'ted99' and others. I can confirm that the mechanical noise also appers even with the original air filter box mounted, but with secondary flies removed ('snorkel' removed and with K&N filter in place). The noise is a bit annoying because it is noticed about 3000 rpm and above. I think I will mount t...

Hi "nrvous"

eBay?
KTM forums around the world?

If you wount find the Akra system, maybe you should have a look at these:

MANY KTM riders are very happy with Wings, I can tell! The sound is great too :-)

Re: New chain/rear sprocket pitch query.....

Hi "Nordic09" I agree with you about increase the number of teeth at the rear sprocket, it is better for the life span of the entire drive line. (I also have to say that a Smaller rear sprocket (like 38 teeth) decreases the rattle sound from the chain hitting the swing arm.) I bought EK (Enuma chain...

Re: New chain/rear sprocket pitch query.....

I have SMT 2010 and the chain is 525. Can´t find that number on the Internet... did you type correct number? Still I´m using original 17 teeth sprocket in front. But I also have 3 different rear sprockets, 38, 41 and 44 teeth to change with when I "need" to :-) Many SMT drivers confirm that 16 teeth...

How did you get the front end up to get the rad high enough to bleed?
Well, I lifted the front wheel by hand up on a bike lift. Secured the bike with "ropes" not to let the bike tilt. Then pumped the lift up to the level I needed. Don´t have pictures, unfortunately.

Hi "Zombiemaster"

I did that operation during last spring. No problem at all. Just followed the manual.
Recommend you to follow it as well.

Re: Filter contemplations

Hi "Cozakdenni" Demount the original air box to an open filter system (like ITG, Rottweiler or similar) and mount other silencers (Wings?) and remap. If you don´t want to remove the air box, I suggest you to replace to an air filter and "triangular" air filter at the side of the air box. Buy from "r...

Re: Clutch plates need change?

Aha, good to know!
I wonder what made the plates and frictions plates "got stocked together"... Overheat? Bad oil?

My SMt 2010 has today 50000 km and never had a problem with the clutch.

Re: Clutch Slave

I bought the Oberon cluth slave cylinder and replaced tho original one. It was a bit tricky to get all the air out from the system, but when done it works as expected.
Can´t say that it works better than original Magura, but for sure the Oberon is better quality.

Hi "kennykjam" Nice that you put on a "automatic chain luber". Saves some time and money not to lube the chain every 300 km... Does Scottoiler recommend to put the drop tube to the outside o-ring and at the rear sprocket? To me this seems strange. I can´t see why put lube to only the outer o-ring of...

Are there bearings... ? I didn´t know that. A look at the KTM shop tells me that you are right. Replace them and also replace the screw, is my advice.

Re: Tire and sprocket replacements

990 SMT 2010 soon up to 50 000 km.

My bike now has Metzeler Z8 Roadtec Interact mounted, front and rear. I have tried them at touring in both wet and dry conditions and have no problem at all.
Also at 2 track days in sunny and dry conditions, no problem.

Actually, I find them to be quite good.

Hi "jeremybingham"

Hope the new hips are playing on your side of the field ;)

Whan I take the tank off, I HAVE to pull the hose connection for the coolant reservior, otherwise it´s impossible to get the tank off... Maybe it is because the tank has swelled a bit.

Re: Stalling problem!

When I replaced the original clutch slave cylinder to an Oberon, I had some minor problems with air in the system. The clutch felt "spongy" and gearing become more difficult. I air bled the system again and then everything was alright.

"Tommy" Yes, just like "Mich69" says; it is a big difference with or without the second flies mounted. When I drive at track days the sound/noise doesn´t bother me at all, because I´m so focused of my driving, but when cruising around in town or at commuting I don´t like the noise. I have a K&N air ...
