Re: Recommendations for really hot weather bike gear.

Spangle Don't were boxers or undies mate. Just wear helly Hanson or similar long John's. Not merino wool. I wear helly Hanson's, end of the day jump in the shower and wash em out in the shampoo, dry by the morning.or put em straight back on. Plus Boxers etc crease up and that's one of the main cause...

Re: Recommendations for really hot weather bike gear.

Went to Italy 2 years ago, on the KTM Rally, hit 35+ degrees. I have a Klim jacket which i use all year, (if you don't know, they are not insulated in any way) it was superb, yes it does get hot when not moving (never stop in the sun, always in the shade where possible) it has more waterproof zips t...

Re: Ktm 990 adv farkles

Just be careful with the ACF50, don't get it on your tyres or discs. Be tight with it. I usually have a cloth in a zip bag that has surplus on, that a rub on the spokes, still go slightly orange mind after a while :o I expect you use ACF50 anyways, seeing as your bike lives outside. That's super nau...

Re: Ktm 990 adv farkles

There is a guy on the KTM forum that does wheel rebuilds etc do a search, his name is Al Henderson I think. I can't see why your wheels are shot, how many miles. I did 44K on my last 990, wheels were fine. Normally only the spokes and nipples corrode, which isn't a biggy. Just scotch brite the spoke...

Re: Ktm 990 adv farkles

I stuck a piece oh high-density rubber foam over the bolts on mine. You can also invert the bolts, so the countersunk heads are facing the engine. This does leave the nuts and bolt 'tails' sticking down and out though. Exactly, if your riding to an off road weekend, it's a pain in the asre doing th...

Re: Ktm 990 adv farkles

I wouldn't bother with the rottweiler airbox mod, seems a waste of money for the gain. If you want faster acceleration, change the Sprockets, cheaper too. Go for a Black Dog bashplate, these things will survive a nuclear war. Was never a fan of the high mudguard, as the tanks and front fairing seem ...
