General Technical / Re: Ticking sound driving me mad, KTM 500
« on: October 19, 2018, 09:37:32 am »
Not a ktm but I've had the exact problem with my XR.

Not saying its definitely the cam chain tensioner, but i'm pretty sure it might be the problem. It is either to tight and not pushing properly against the cam chain or the cam chain is getting worn, but I doubt its the cam chain, it would have been picked up by the service.
Just set the tensioner again, let the bike idle and loosen both the tensioner lock nut and adjusting bolt by 1 - 2 turns. It should set itself. Then retighten again.

Hope this helps.
Keep us posted

General Bike Related Banter / Re: What defines a good adventure bike rider?
« on: September 05, 2018, 11:39:34 am »
Hi Guys,
Probably too late, but as a 30 year old, with adventure running through my veins, here is my 2 cents worth: 

Kobus is spot on with his saying that most 20 to 30 year olds can’t afford an adventure bike, thus not fully experience the adventure rider spirit. I could never afford a proper adventure bike but my finances did allow me to buy a few forgotten Honda XR classics which I restored.

None the less that never stopped me from having an adventure. Whether it was building my own “kaskar” and riding it down in our street, or having to be very fortunate and doing a solo trip through Namibia on my boet’s 1150 GSA.

To me it is all about the spirit inside you, your willingness to explore and eagerness to see the unforeseen. If you have that passion, it can never be taken away. Passion is something that can’t be learned nor bought. Mechanical skills, endurance, stamina, strength, knowledge is all things you learn as life takes you on various journeys. Having all these skills doesn’t make you an adventure rider, it make you a good rider. Adventure comes from within.

Reading all the comment above and having followed the 2017 Quest closely, I can only dream of achieving all these things. But I will stand to my point, as a 30 year old I might not have all the skills and experience that defines a good adventure rider, but my passion, willingness and drive to learn, explore and go that extra mile makes me an adventure rider. I am young, I am fit, I am strong and I have passion. These are the only things that I can use to grow and evolve into a true experienced adventure rider.

I have learned all the necessary skills to take care of my bike, but no one has taught me to have a passion for adventure.

Getting on my bike every weekend and just driving on any dirt road I can find for as long and far as I can, man that feeling can never be taken away and sends chills down my spine.

Netjies. mag ek wat jy betaal het?  Hoe swaar is die end can.  Ek soek opsies vir my TTR.

Hi katana,

Geen probleem. Ek het 1500 betaal. Ek dink dis 'n bargain as ek kyk na wat die ander manne my gekwoteer het. Jy kry natuurlik dan ook die opsie om 'n stainles steel cannister op te sit ook wat klein bietjie duurder is vir 'n meer moderne look. Ek het 'n foto sou jy wou sien hoe hy lyk?

Die hele storie met die header pype is baie lig. Daardie cannister kom nie appart af nie, jy kan sien meer na die middel is die coupling wat die 2 dele konekteer. Maar dis gladnie 'n swaar storie nie.

Aggenee man Werner!!  Moet jy dit nou vir my uitwys!  :imaposer:

Kan ‘n mens nie daai status verander nie?  Ek voel nou goedkoop.  :xxbah:

Goedkoop dalk ja, maar die ervaring en kennis kan mens nie koop nie...

Wel gedaan oumaat.

Oom Heinrich aka eberhard.

Thomas aka speedster het my laat weet jys daar in Garsfontein, om die draai van my (Elarduspark).

Ek het 'n 82 R100 RS wat ek heeltemal oorgedoen het, die thread is so paar bladsye ondertoe.

Skree as ek kan help of gou 'n draai daar moet kom maak een dag met die bike, dalk sal dit help om uit te figure wat kom waar en dalk 'n paar idees.
