2007 KTM 990 Adventure


several rides on a 950 Adventure, I the bike really didn’t much more power. riding a 990 it was even more as it had very quick throttle along with 950+ I initially planned on leaving the powerplant completely stock, after several rides it was why so many 950/990 riders to aftermarket pipes.

The stock could best be described as It seems KTM engineers took molten metal compound fell to earth and will cool and stuck it inside the converters of the pipes. These run extremely hot regardless of how long the has sat.

I’ve hosed the off several hours after only to be met with a steam from the pipes.

After searching I ended up going a set of Non Oval Shape (NOS) Exhausts, complete with fiber end caps. These were one of the best looking of pipes I’ve ever Being made out of Titanium and fiber they were lighter (approximately 12 pounds total) than the stock as well (as equally lightening of the also). They came with two inserts, loud and not so which also had spark

I ended up running the not so loud, is about equal to the stock in terms of dB output, but with a sound.

I then proceeded to the charcoal canister along the secondary air injection system I used a Bosch Connector Eagle Day to maintain the stock on the Canister connections and replaced the on the connector for the SAS. $0.99 of 1/4 15K Ohm resistors from a electrical store tricked the FI into all was dandy both on the Charcoal and SAS connections.

Why remove the Canister and SAS you ask? My motivation for removing the canister was if you overfill the tank or drop the on its side and take a minute to it up, gasoline will flood the canister and work its way into the tract, flooding out the motor. Not

As for the SAS, it causes the annoying pop on and adds a lot of unnecessary octopus to the compartment.

I also added a UNI pre which will greatly the life of the stock paper As the bike’s FI was able to somewhat for the increased richness, no remapping was

I did perform the 15 min idle trick, to speed up recalibration. To do so, disconnect the for at least 10 min (I left mine put the bike on the centerstand, start it up and the bike to idle for 15min not more than 15min 45 without touching any of the controls. I a large box fan to aid in cooling and had the exhaust pointed out the garage door.

After performing the idle the bike runs noticeably and lacks the jerky on/off it had before.

When performing the valve adjustment, none of the KTM dealers had the required shims. searching far and wide and even using 9.48mm shims my old DRZ kit, I found some shims at the local Harley dealer. Seems the HD V-Rod 10mm shims rather the typical HD self adjusting adjustment. I ordered up a decent as they were only a shim (half what KTM and came in half sizes

2.425mm), which KTM doesn’t. after installing them, my now idles much rougher and keeps asking for a trailer, gets ridden 50 miles a and seems to leak oil everywhere 😉

During a Baja trip, one of my bolts which apparently tightened sufficiently at the factory, out and tore a whole through the I was able to fix the damage to the case using a $10 peso and some JB and the mighty LC8 engine soldiered on to it home. Badlands ATV is currently the engine a complete teardown and to fix any potential damage.

While the is out of commission I’m having the lengthened to 990S specification travel from 210mm to 265mm (10.43). Previously I had with some bottoming riding the bike at speed and small jumps, this 45mm of travel should counter that. I’m having stiffer .52 springs up front to deal with the mass from the Aqualine

Ah the Aqualine tanks. After the stock 5.1 gallon tanks to limits on numerous occasions, I cut my luggage capacity by carrying a 1.5 Kolpin can and two 1L MSR fuel bottles. even this was not enough to the low 30-35 mpg experienced during off roading, and I needed to borrow a buddy’s 6.6 gallon tank on his 525 EXC on one

Enter the 12 gallon tanks by of Australia. Although they an arm and a leg at $1400 shipped, they a usable capacity of 10.5 with some riders they were able to get in to 11.8 gallons of … These tanks should extend my exploring range to at the least 300 miles.

Leave it to to help me find more to spend money, referring me to who manufacturers many unique for the LC8’s. After seeing his of his clear clutch cover, I I wanted one. What way to see if your clutch bolts are their way loose.

CJRacer also offered a package deal on the Rekluse Pro auto clutch. Although, I limited experiences with — mostly ATV’s, I this modification will greatly with preventing during low speed maneuvers. part is the new autoclutches allow clutch use, so it is only when you need it.
