Cheers J To open i just stuffed some rags in the place the clutch discs goes in to make some friction, put it in neutral and let the impact driller do the job, when ...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Last update from KTM, they wrote me that the change in oil pump gear is due to supplier change and nothing to do to part faulty design. :evil: They also wrote that since they do not have a record of my bike getting oil change at the KTM dealer in the last 2 years they put it down as wrong oil and fi...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

The desert sled is not Icon in off road look (for this you have the urban model) it is very much diffrent.

So far reviews in ADV forum shows it is suitable for long rides, will know better after a test ride.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

As i said life is short so no time to deal with KTM althogh it is not over yet.
All parts arrived and installed, engine seems to work smooth and first ride around the block was successful.

After i will confirm all is fine (some longer trips) i will sell the bike and buy a not KTM bike.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Elvis, is it possible that the clutch basket nut had become loose? Just a thought, but this could have led to the gear becoming partially disengaged causing a massive side load on it as it got jammed by the driven gear on the oil pump. That certainly could have snapped the gear in half. Have you ch...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Good on you Elvis. Keep us informed. This is a serious safety hazard you have unearthed in my opinion. KTM need to sort this sh@t out. You could've had a catastrophic off (180km/h lock up !) and possibly nobody would have known what caused your death, and the police investigation would have conclud...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Hi Elvis, I posted your thread link on the superduke forum as there are many more 990 LC8 owners on this forum to propagate this safety warning (these guys ride their bikes much more harder than SMT owners). http://www.superduke.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=27941 As echoed by other members.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

I got the new sprocket and guess what?
KTM knows about this issue so they replaced the sprocket with a more robust one (with no holes).

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

2 updates: 1. KTM answered my mail with a copy paste BS, interesting thing was their statement that any good will will be granted only if i can show that from 2012 the bike did not miss any maintenance and all was done at KTM dealer. My bike did not miss any oil change and parts are originals but it...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Is it a normal circlip or the kind with the two holes that needs the reverse pliers? I’d have thought the latter kind would be more than up to the job. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk In the manual it looks like the normal one that you can pop open with flat screw driver but what ever is there i...

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Although my bike is 2012 it has only 25000km and this is what i dont understand, how come no other cases turned up by now? maybe it is known to KTM and was fixed under warranty quietly?
unless there will be a fix that eliminate the use of the clip i will sell it after it will be repaired.

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

The thought that my life depends on a cir clip makes me crazy, assuming the damage is only to sprocket any ideas how to secure it in addition to the cir clip?

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

Problem found! The clip of the oil pump sprocket went out and the sprocket is now stuck between the case and clutch basket

I found it out by inserting endoscope from the oil screen side so I don't know yet if there is more damage inside

Re: Drop in oil pressure during high speed running.

When you start bike cold, what does the oil level do on the oil tank ? I did not started it yet from cold i waited 10 and start it again and in the oil tank there was low level oil with evidence of circulation, after engine turned oil level went up some bubbles, this clearly shows the pump is worki...
