My KTM 950 Adventure thread

As of you followed My KLR thread and watched the of the bike, hopefully you read my frustrations regarding the KLR. It was a motorcycle and was wonderful in many One issue to me was the lack of power to be to carry the bike at a speed of than 70-75mph.

The bike move at 70-75 but left power for passing.

My new bike was for a machine that I could for a long time and satisfy all of my It … me to get rid of the KLR having done so to it and becoming one with the bike 10,000 miles and lots of but I couldn’t keep both. My when considering a new bike torn between a KTM 950/990 and a BMW

I also had my sights on a Triumph Adventure though the local didn’t have any in stock and no interest in getting one in. I wanted a with plenty of HP, a 21 front industry support, and power for like added light’s, GPS and my gear. The KTM and the BMW both were for being world travelers was appealing.

My drawbacks between the and the 950/990 were minimal. the 100hp dirt inspired KTM be too for me? Would the lack of a local BMW be an issue for me? Would the additional costs be an issue? (both go through tires that a little more, use premium synthetic oil’s, more farkles. )

Either would have a great choice. I didn’t the opportunity for owning a new bike come so soon but I found a deal and had to take the plunge.

So now I a KTM 950 Adventure, what will I do to it? For I want to address all of the known with the bike. I called CJ of CJ (who has made quite a for himself with the KTM 950 crowd) and he installing his water pump kit from day 1, removing all of the emissions (if legal in my state of course), the fuel tanks into a dual draw tank with his kit and installing a aftermarket system.

He also advised to change the oil jet for the Of course, all of these modifications he in his online store. After research, his recommendations all made

If you dont want to sift the forums, here is a great one shop for doing research on the common issues and modifications to the is a great resource as and should go without saying. if you are reading this, you have on adv at some point, too.

Here she is. I bought it in the … of ice on the roads and a mild 30f outside. Of trailered home due to the ice.

I already had plans to replace the pump shaft and seal I wanted to check and see if it had already itself. The quickest way to check is to the clutch cover and inspect for a milky substance after the has been warmed up.

Sure mine was toast. I was disappointed to see but not surprised. Who knows how long has been like this but I not very long.

So without I decided that since we are in I might as well tear the down and start to investigate issues fixing everything I can to ensure a great worry ‘season’ of riding ahead. My focus was to address everything CJ In stock form, with the maintenance complete, this is awesome, so I read.

I want to bring the bike to point.

Tearing the bike I found why this bike the race bred attention it Everything about this is top notch. Even the details aluminum washers, bolts are the exact length, the battery at the bottom of the bike, the massive on the forks, aluminum swing aluminum behind the fairings, frame. the list goes on.

The is currently tore down a more than this at the but these photos display a more of what I am talking

Hopefully, I will have maintenance complete in the next few More to follow.
