Re: painting the front fender

Hi 'Striff'! What is release agent? Something originally on the plastic from factory? But... in that case, one shouldn't be able to remove it using warm soapy water and Scotch brite... right? Do you mean pollutants get stuck in the plastic, and has to be removed? I know that plastic primer is availa...

Re: Fully Electronic Cruise Control not a throttle lock but a TRUE Cruise Control.

Hi all! FIrst, 'Martin D2D' - I'm driving an KTM 990 SMt and would really be glad to install a cruise control, as I'm doing a lot of long touring. Is the c c available to 990 SMt (LC8 engine)? Or could the unit be 'transformed' to suit to a 990 SMt? - Second, 'Danish-Rider' - do you still have the b...

Re: painting the front fender

Hi Again, thank you very much for very good information about compressors, painting, 2k, sanding and clear coat! I see - some nasty marks was covered by the decals. You said you are a 'hobby painter', but I doubt it :-) More like a professional in my opinion! Great patience too. Ok, I got it about t...

Re: Replacement ignition

Hi 'Goose' I may not be able to help you out about the ignition, just wanted to say that my previous bike (V-Strom 1000) was stolen ones and I got it back the same day. The steering lock (and the frame) was broken, ignition smashed, seat bended and some other minor damages. The bike was taken to the...

Re: KTM 990 smt 2009 TuneECU map

16 t framkrans är ju 1 tillfälligt alternativ, såklart. Dock ökar varvtalet en del i högre hastigheter... Nu har jag rengjort K&N-filtret och planerar att ta med det till Gbg på lördag ;-) Tittade nu i min servicedagbok och där framgår att jag först körde ca. 700 mil med filtret och därefter rengöri...

Re: KTM 990 smt 2009 TuneECU map

Vet inte exakt miltal som jag kört med filteet, men rengjort 1 gång och ska rengöras nu. Det är ju ett 'evighetsfilter' så du behöver inte vara orolig för att det är 'slut' 😊 Dessutom sköter jag mina prylar - det kostar för mkt att slarva! Kan du kolla hur mkt en ny filtersats (inkl rengöring + olja...

Tjena Ja, det är många sidor att läsa. Fast vintern är ju lång ;-) Ok, standard mapp. Jag köpte Dominators ljuddämpare förra året (från Polen) och tog bort sekundärspjällen, SAS, Lambdasonderna, snorkeln på luftboxen och bytte luftfilter till K&N.

Re: painting the front fender

Hi 'detro996' ! I also like the looking of the front fender. That gloss black is really beautiful! I'm planning to do the samt to the front fender, side plastics (close to the seat), the plastic around the front light, maybe the hand guards and the (RedFox 'shitty') rear hugger. Let see if I got it ...

Re: Clutch /engine problem LC8

'P-vstrom'
Welcome to the forum!

As I understand it, the swing arm chain protection unit (the chain slider) came loose and the drive chain drag it into the front sprocket area, damaging also the front sprocket cover. Am I right?

You have got the answer what to do from 'Gimlet'.

Good luck!

Re: crazy tire wear on my other bike

I'm quite sure some guys would point at wrong air pressure in the tire. Normally, tires always get worse at the left side, due to the fact that the road isn't 'flat', but does 'tilt' from left to right (that is from the middle of the road (center line) to the right side). That is during right side t...
