Makes sense to do that.

Look how easy shock access is :)

Okay, I have removed the cover so thought I would share some of the challenges I had. I do not have much of a technical background and while I have done a lot of small DIY stuff this is the most challenging one for me yet.
And if I broke the undertray again next week I would drop the bike off at KTM.

I struggled to remove the old one, so in the end started to break the old one further to reveal more of the attachment points. I did not have far to go when I got stuck at screws beneath the side covers. Problem was  there was no space for a ratchet or anything. I cound not take the covers of either as then I would have to remove the pannier racks aqnd in all my wisdom the bike was hanging from the roof on those racks. So I had to go through the mission of unscrewing with single a bit and a shifting spanner as per picture 1.

Pic 2 shows the pannel removed/broken up to the front box part.

Pic 3, this little whatever had to be unplugged as well, what is that?

Next up I struggled with the ABS pump (?). I had removed everything I could see but that last box was still attached. Eventually I saw it was screwed to the frame at the bottom. The one side I could reach from the top with some extensions but on the other side there was no access next to all the pipes in the way. Eventually I removed the seat lock and could easily reach it with a ratchet. Pic 4

Pic 5 I had to remove the lock from the cable. Hope I can put it back together correctly.

Pic 6 panel removed. Pic taken from the rear with exhaust in pic right bottom. Had to still do a bit of persuasion/twisting and pulling.

So since pics I have done more cleaning and hope to start with fitting the new undertray tomorrow. Its going to be tough to just get it in place, its a tight fit. I am hoping writing it down like this will help structuring my thoughts come time to fit.

WOW!  :o
I doubt if I would be able to put all that together again, without having a box full of 'extras'
Good luck!  :thumleft:  and thanks for sharing!

edit: that looks like the regulator in pic 3

Genugtig! Daai lyk soos verskriklik baie werk. Sterkte met die res.

In the end I am a little disappointed in the amount of time I had free to spend on the bike over this long weekend.
I have started putting everything back together, but not much more than that. It was a mission to get the panel in place, that took some time. And then some parts I struggled to remember where they came, but that's also sorted. Lets say 10% done but some of the trickier stuff is at least already in place. Fortunately I took pics for this thread and they helped me see where some stuff go.

Top gear top tip....put the ECU (actually MCU) back on with its 3 screws at the back of the panel before refitting the panel. There is no space to fit it afterwords! I always knew I should have been a gynaecologist!

WOW!  :o

Leftover parts is a sign you made it better!

Ek het nogsteeds a klein huisie vol fotos van daai verdomde Nissan van my erens. Ek gaan delete dit sommer vanaand as ek tuiskom en skop die muur kaalvoet om die pyn van voor af te herleef.

Ten minste was jou bike heel en in werkende orde toe jy hom gekoop het.

Progressing nicely. Got to put some proper time in, not just 10min here 10min there, then its just so much easier!

Pic 1. Star of this show was that pen magnet thing! Dont know how I ever managed without something like that. Also, what plug is that? I dont know where it goes, but have started up and bike seems fine.

Pic 2. Cover beneath the battery found after installing the battery. Just an example of one frustrating yourself.

Pic 3 Removing light really made me think the bike needs some tranformer name!

Now that I am so close to beaing done I am extremely frustrated not having an extra hour just to finish!

good progress!  :thumleft:

I haven't seen a plug like that on my bikes..... maybe an after-market connection for power? Measure it with IGN ON and OFF

As in to charge?



So I am on the road again! Damn I love this bike! Got a bit carried away and my cell fell out of my pocket, screen gone. But I will still be putting some photos up later today hopefully. I did some visual upgrades as well and love it! Stay tuned.


First impression on the suspension upgrade...its a lot stiffer as in I preload less when taking a speedbump at speed. But its not harsh as the bike was when everything was set at max. I think I will be happy.
On the front end I did somehow screw up the routing of the wires, I struggle to get to full lock. So some minor stuff still to sort but its just finishing touches.

Just happy to be back on two wheels again!

Found the obstruction when turning. The stea1ring damper was catching some plastic. It was not twisted on the fork so that the arm is fully retracted when the wheel is turned to full lock.

Anyhow, promised pics attached!
I had the tank cover painted black and fitted a tankpad. I also replaced the headlight mask (I think is the name) with a black 1050 one. I also wanted to replace those silver side panels with black ones but ordered the wrong ones and am now sitting with a set of extra black side covers. This is maybe a good thing as I knew replacing the silver make it all to much black and the plan was then to fit some orange stickers to break it. Now I like it as is.
Need to decide now if I want to send those covers back or fit a sticker kit.

Oh, I also painted the silver radiator guard black wi5h a twist


All in all I am very pleased with what the bike looks like now. Feels like mine now as well. Hope that makes sense.


Oh, Manic I hope you approve!

Heated grips like Renrew said.
I cant make my mind up on an oiler. Coming from a shaft I have never gotten into the habit of caring for a chain. Cleaned the chain now but keep forgetting to apply wax!
The one reason the other reason...i have a lot of old oil to get rid off from servicing my cars! :)

I've got my 1st oiler on my present bike, after probably 6 chain and one shaft bikes - I think it's worth it, being very lazy myself - I've got the Cobrra Nemo2, very easy to install and I just give it a twist every 300km

Good point!  I have been planning and figuring out how to stretch my brownee point balance to do a little trip, but we do actually have an MX track that I can quickly go and try the suspension out on. I am not much of a jumper but I will be getting a feeling and its great for skills training!


I need to prioritise what I still need to sort out before our August big trip. List of the top of my head:
Front tyre needs mushroom plug or something
I need to oil all tools and package them again, they are in a sorry state at the moment.
I do need a few 100km of gravel to shake loose whatever wants to come loose.
Spotlights is sometimes not working, I suspect the switch, so will replace that. Other times only the one spot is dead, need to troubleshoot.

Over the weekend I did let the bike sleep outside one night to check the starter on cold start, it was fine. So either I have the upgraded starter or a better-than-OEM battery.

If you make those side panels white you'll almost have a 1090R clone haha :biggrin: :thumleft:
