Lito,

How goes it. Met you through Mad Al at Doodles. I have the silver and black 950 Adv. If you can get the vinyl layout from Krazy in a vector format, I will get it cut and applied for you. I work for a signage company.
When in doubt...grab throttle!!!

No problem as long as it is in Windows format and not Mac. Would prefer Coral draw or PDF though

i am hecticly snowed under(figuratively speaking) this week , but i am on it.

i dont touch macs  :x
my buddy swears by his, he has 3 of those one-mouse-button, over priced, against the grain pieces of sh@#$. funny thing is he paid close to 40 000 for one of em and the thing keeps breaking. it overheats, and crashes, and sommer freaks out for no reason  :lol:  40G's!?!?  :shock:
you cant even right-click, noooo, you have to hold down a button on the keyboard with your left hand. so now you're occupying both hands - pretty stupid if you ask me.

no thanx, i paid R6000 for my pc and i can upgrade it when ever i want, not that it needs it, and i do lots of graphics on it.

i used to have corel, but lost it. now i have an ooooold version of freehand, it sucks but it's better than nothing.

CO,

Question for you. Can you get thick signage vinyl (clear) so that I can cover the sides of my bike with it? The black paint is getting killed by my offroading antics....

Let me know pls!!!


KE, thanks boet, I cant wait. The helmet is great, but I reckon it can only get better. Cant wait to ride... but I dont have keys to the KTM now. They are lost.. :(  :(  :(  :(  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

Lito,

Will investigate the thickest clear vinyl for you. The problem is that if its something we dont use we would need to buy a complete roll which could be as much as R20K. You could try contacting someone like Maizey Plastics or Falcon Marketing. I believe they would sell it by the metre.

The Arai is an awesome lid...very happy with mine
When in doubt...grab throttle!!!

Thanks boet. I appreciate it. I will check out those places if you dont have in stock, and I am sure the sides of my bike will thank you too!

Cant wait to try on the new Arai  8)  8)  8)

I agree with your comments in that the bike is soooooo much smoother than the 950. Its is also a lot more responsive at the bottom to mid ranges. I have found the 950 to have quite a bit more at the top but in saying that I need to ride both bikes on the same day, same conditions etc. Al's motor has alsao only done 3000 odd Kays which may also be a factor. Logic tells me that in theory the 990 should have more at the top than the 950 so we will have to re-look at the situation when Al is mobile again.

I dont agree with your comments of the suspension. I found my and Al's suspension to be feel almost identical. As per your report maybe your suspension needs a service and oil change. Not surprising based on how you ride that Katoom.
