Hoe unsubscribe ek van die thread?

Wil elke keer in my broek kak.........
Die lig sal weer skyn!
Suspensie is weer in die pos oppad terug en nuwe undertray is betaal ook, oor so 2 weke loop hy hopelik weer! Ek begin nou al ernstige PMS kry.
Intussen beplan ek my groot trip vir die haar. Aug moet die bike sy man kan staan teen 990's in lesotho! Great times


Did you look at the thread http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/ktm-1190-problems.906504/page-65 and see how this guy added support ?

Hey thanks Armpump. I have read that thread in the past when I just got the bike, but forgot that I can use this bit as reference for my issue. Was very happy when you posted the link and will be looking into it.

I should be getting the undertray this weekend, will start getting direction then. My intention at the moment is not to strengthen it though, I am hoping that the suspension upgrade will help. It allegedly helps with rim smileys as well. Will have to see.

(if its an easy strengthening option I will do it, but my pannier racks look different and I am kind of in a hurry to finish. but maybe...)

First prize is keep tire away from undertray but bracing is cheap and easy while you about it.

Yessss update time...

I have made some nice progress but haven't sorted the big issue, the undertray and a broken plug, yet.

Last week I received my suspension, so this weekend I installed that. But its fairly slow going as I try to properly clean whatever I open up or take off. The fork oil and mud is a mean combo to clean! Anyhow. Forks are back on as well as the rear shock is also in. I was worried a bit about the rear, as it was tough to get out, but once aligned and all it went fairly easy.

I also received some goodies from RAD so long (undertray on back order though). Amongst others this tank pad. Will it work cause I don't see it happening on my bike? Anyone know?
I asked the sales guy of RAD twice (Yes, TWICE) if it will fit on my bike... not very happy so hoping I am missing something, in which case I will apologise to RAD in their absence here :)

On my front tyre with the cut...I fitted a heavy duty tube with some mild language expansion. But now I need some feedback as I did not think this through...can I leave the cut like that? I am guessing not...but how can I seal it from the outside without taking the tyre off again. The concern is that rocks and grit will enter the tyre and grind the tube from inside. If I have learned anything from this tyre issues it has confirmed to me how much I dislike tubes and love tubeless. I just want to get some mileage out of that tyre then I will probably spend another piece of my son's inheritance on replacing the rim with another tubeless.

Then last picture, I need to take that pump or motor or whatever out to take out the undertray. Or do I have to? Can I just disconnect those fittings? At the moment I am not focussing to much on the undertray until I can get the new part and better see where it attaches.

Cant wait to be riding again!

Tyre will have to come off again and fit a internal "patch"



Personally i would not trust a cut like that for any form of high speed/weight.

Oh and you should have enough width to place that tank pad on 1190 R as well

Gooi weg, daai gaan vir jou nog baie frustrasie bring, Írens afgeleŽ in die bloedige son, sonder water en met baie stof... Jy kan die tyre wat jy koop oordra na jou nuwe rim toe.

Ai my tankpad lyk baie kleiner as die een in daai foto, ek sal maar weer mooi gaan kyk. Sal nice lyk as hy werk.

Tyre...ek sou daai tyre net so gery het met 5 plugs in as my rim nie gebuig was nie. Die situasie is tans dat die gebuigde rim onder 1.7bar af blaas maar bo 2.3bar rond druk hy die plugs uit. Tubeless is awesome. Eks baie lus en blaas tube heel af, en druk weer plugs in en plaas weer tube op en kry wat maak hy.
As ek daai tyre vervang vervang ek die rim ook en ek nie nou eintlik lus vir daai ekspedisie nie. Reken dit seker so 6 na 7k, nuwe tyre ingesluit. Ek moet nou besluit hoe erg haat ek tubes teenoor hoe erg suinig ek tans voel.

Offroad Fanatics: Suspensie was na Superfoxi toe. Ek het nog nie uitgetoets nie, maar hy het vir my progressive springs orals ingesit en revalving voor gedoen. Daarmee saam alle seels en rubbers en so vervang. Dust seels het ook al hulle ouderdom begin wys. Een of ander bushes was ook moeg en die het hy ook vervang. So dit maar upgrade met proper diens. Hopelik hou hulle. Ek het kouse in die pos om voor ook op te sit om te keer vir volgende keer se modder ook. Ek wil nie nog seels groet nie.

Sidenote...toe ek die shock verpak het agter shock ook olie op gehad, Superfoxi se hy moes nie. maar het nie self veel fout daar gesien nie. Maar either way, ek het dus op een trip altwee seels op voorste shocks gegroet en dalk agterste shock sin ook. Modder is nie jou maat nie.
O, en onthou om jou fork bleeders toe te maak, Postnet was glo glad nie baie happy toe hulle vloer vol olie op eindig nie...

Kleingelowiges!!
hahaha
Ek sal hom eers in die area uit toets darm.
Kyk so daarna, die rim is elkgeval moeg en moet vervang word, as hy my in middle van nerens drop ry ek hom stukkend terug.


(Hopelik kom ek nie oor n maand terug en se ek moes geluister het nie...)

Molt as jy hom wil behou sit een van daai deutrek plugs is. Hy het n gator aan die binnekant wat vasgom en dan n rubber piepie wat deurtrek. Moenie plugs gebruik. Daai deutrek plugs is die enigstes wat ek sal gebruik op n voorband.
Het nou juis een in op n nuwe voorband. Klein gaatjie wat n pendoring gemaak het.

The plugs alone with a tube will no doubt cause your tube to wear and leak where it rubs against the plugs.  Throw that tire away and get another one or remove the plugs and just use a tube (depending on the size of the hole).  A new tire is much cheaper than repairing crash damage.

Hi armpump. Thanks for asking, but not much progress.

Did manage to fix the plug in the first pic. Its the connector for all the rear lights, my stepfather is a perfectionist and a 'radio-something' by trade so this is his food, its as good as new again. I would like to know how KTM would have addressed it, maybe replacing part of the wiring loom?

Other than that the 'tail end lower part' should hopefully be in my town before the weekend...so I have big plans for the weekend. In the second pic is a huge concern though, I would rather not have to take out the (I think) ABS pump. SO I am also waiting for the replacement part to see where all the attachment points sit and hoping for a revelation that it wont be necessary to take this out. Holding thumbs!

Then I am also busy with some visual upgrades but I will reveal all in due time.

All the shit in these modern bikes gives me the chills bigtime!

Why aren't you just giving the bike to a dealer to fix? You should have an insurance claim right?

Well hindsight is 20/20....
It was a big decision, and knowing what I know now maybe I should have. But lets look at the pros and cons

Pros
Less hassle (to a degree)
quicker
front rim would also have been fixed (I will probably still claim it sometime in the future)

Cons
I don't learn my bike
unnecessary claim (It goes on your record, I don't like claiming)
No suspension upgrade. I cant tell KTM to remove suspension, ship off to Superfoxi and install again 2 weeks later when its back. (this way I basically close my eyes and do everything, no procrastinating)
I don't trust KTM, there is enough horror stories
Even ham fisted with little experience I have, with the help of forums the work is very straightforward. And I know I have cleaned the plugs with a brush and damp cloth, how would KTM have cleaned them...water around CPU? or leave it as be? I doubt they would spend the amount of hours I have already spend, just on cleaning
I did my first solo front tube install!
I am 400km from nearest dealer.



Maybe I am exaggerating. Must say I am very tempted now to go ahead and still claim. I am feeling poor here and would like my front rim replaced sooner rather than later. I want my tubeless back!
