Why not the old 750 RD07 or RD04 Africa Twin?
I traveled on one all the way down from northern Europe without any troubles (apart from hitting a donkey...but that's another story)

Better idea to shorten shock and forks instead of messing with the linkage ratio.
Let me know if you need more info.

I can service the shock with new seals, oil and bushes. Can also install a stiffer spring if you like.
Just send me a message if you are interested.

thank you, will contact asap, will I be able to take the shock out myself?

It's probably not a KTM thing to sort out.
KTM also source their parts from "Big" names out there, Bosch, Keihin etc.
Keihin (I assume) will need to sort out the designs on this pump and as Dux mentions similarly to the 950 pump, this is most likely fitted to many bikes as a "generic" FI and pump combination.

But it's the manufacturers responsibility to source reliable parts. As mentioned the 750 Africa Twin fuel pump was known to be unreliable - why use exactly the same pump on a KTM 20 years later?

Yamaha XT & XTZ / Re: XT660Z engine knock
« on: August 16, 2018, 07:48:45 pm »
The nut that holds the primary gear onto the crank shaft tends to come lose on the 660's.I already fixed a few of those. Sounds like a big end bearing damage....

I can only get them for you next week. Or she can go to Craig's Motorcycles in Maitland. They are very helpful and might have stock of aftermarket fork boots. Don't buy the ones from Startline. They don't last...

Armpump, thanks for the advice, I appreciate it  :thumleft:
At the bottom of the shocks there are what appears to be bleed screws that you can open and close with a allen key, not sure if it is the same as the release on the top of other bike forks.

Your bike doesm't have bleed screws. That screw at the bottom is keeping your forks together. Don't open it...

Kawasaki KLR 600/650 / Re: Engine cuts out at ful throttle
« on: March 05, 2018, 09:19:58 am »
Could be a (partly) blocked main jet - or even water in the float bowl.
Close the petrol tap and drain the carb (drain screw is at the bottom of the float bowl).
Also have a look if the air filter is maybe dirty.
If that doesn't help - bring it to a mechanic.
