Changing fuel filters …

Not that hard once the fuel tank is lifted off – and my finger will stop bleeding soon 🙂

Automatic center stand adaption …

After a few years on the bike, my center stand have now modified itself so it no longer hits the tarmac in the corners 🙂

Sigutech clutch slave cylinder …

The original clutch slave is known to fail after aprox 30.000 km – mine did too ! Sigutech makes a CNC milled version that lasts – and you can get it in Orange 🙂

Upgrading the Dashboard …

Moving the internals of the dash to the newer water proof casing.  Not that easy, but a great day to spend a rainy winter afternoon 🙂

Puig Wind Screen …

I actually like the looks of the original wind screen better, but it creates a very annoying wind turbulence that makes even the most quiet helmet very noisy at road and highway speeds.  These turbulences all depends on rider height and wind screen height, and for my height (187 cm), the original screen height is […]

Well trashed rear tire …

On my KTM 990 SMT after a day on Ring Knutstorp (Race Track) in Sweden 🙂

Fun day at Ring Kuntstorp …

Yes, I’m smiling big time inside the helmet 🙂

Givi rack wrench …

The Give rack is easy to remove with the triangular head T-wrench that came with rack.  But the T-wrench does not fit well in the toolkit under the seat, so I made a compact wrench from a stainless steel bolt.  A great way to spend an hour in the workshop on a rainy sunday 🙂 […]

Indtalling the Givi sidecase rack …

Bolting on the permanent brackets.         

Preparing to install Givi sidecase rack …

I was newer completely with the original semi-soft original cases.  They are not water proof, not lockable, and do not stand on the ground without tumbling over.  The solution is a Givi rack that is installed and removed in two minutes – only leaving small brackets permanently on the bike.  And a set of narrow, […]

A few parts to manage …

but it’s not too bad. The LC8 engine is well build and easy to work on.    

Adjusting the rear cylinder exhaust valves …

so the exhaust cam have to come out.    

Measuring valve clearance …

it’s easier when you seperate the feeler gauges.    

Preparing to adjust valves …

First time on the 990 SMT, but it’s not too bad, and there is sufficient space for hands and spanners 🙂     

A billion insects …

have committed suicide on the front of my bike.  The small add-on screen voids most of the bugs hitting my helmet – a usefull farkle 🙂   

Start of 2015 season …

Still lots of salt on the road so the bike is hosed down with plenty of water after each ride and dried in heated garage.

Chrash bars …

To save engine, water pump and tank if I should drop the bike. I bought the version with a support bar across the two sides to make it more stable than the original KTM crashbar. But it’s a bit harder to install.

Riders view …

GPS, Gipro gear indicator, Scottoiler, and obviously the original dashboard. The Gipro is flashibg an “L” to indicate it is not yet properly programmed.

Bracket on the back of the TomTom …

To let you slide it into the holder and lock it so no one is stealing your GPS.
