Been preparing for my next trip.
I decided to change the GPS and phone wiring -in essence, I want less wires but also redundancy.

Ordered RAM's wireless charger. They have the X-clamp version too but I've been getting quite annoyed by the way my current X-clamp would press the buttons on the side of my phone. So decided to try another option. Will see how it handles the phone in landscape mode..

Its a bit heavy though.. specs state 300g but maybe that includes all wires and such. The carbon part of my tower only weighs 300g, so that puts things into perspective  :o
So although its much handier, it does weight substantially more than my current old-school X-mount.
But anyway, going this route means I wont need dedicated USB-A and C wires anymore.

Both phones will require something like this:


I like the cleaner look of the tower already

I've mounted a redundant USB plug on the side of the tower, visible on the bottom left, in the above picture

One 20watt and redundant 15watt USB supplies:


While I had the tower removed, I thought I'd see how much it weighs, vs the stock unit.


540g:

vs 1900g:

This includes the tower mounting brackets, screen mountings, fuse box, GPS mounts and all wiring

Hulle is wel 2016 model met 26mm diameter as. (My 2017 het 22m diameter as)

Lyk my ek kort net ander as en bypassende bearing spacers. Die bearings sien ek is dieselfde asook die binneste lang spacer

Finally got me a semi-decent crimp tool



..and decided to tidy up some wires behind the 'dash'


Man, it was pleasing being able to crimp the wires so effortlessly  O0

Turns out my current lower fork guards will also not fit these cone valve forks  :(

Picked me up a set of 2015 yellow fork guards from a local KTM shop. Naturally, I had to bling them out a bit:


Will mount the wheel on Monday, once I have the new axle + spacers.

In the meantime, I'm trying to arrange for a B&B that will allow me to stash my vehicle with them for a week.

The current plan is PCR test on the 15th -> trailer to south of France on 15th/16th -> start bike trip from 17 to 22'ish -> return to NL 23rd

Found 1cm lower and wider pegs, while visiting KTM

I couldn't resist.

Once you've used a decent crimping tool only once you'll never use anything else again.
It's like a factory crimp, even the insulation (btw, up to you to trim oaa properly) is held by a - separate - crimp!  :thumleft:
There's 3 different tools for, duh, 3 different types of terminals, and the ratchet-type crimping tools (Japanese or Taiwanese) are the best.
Looking around one can find them, but a proper tools supplier (or electrical-) can help you here.
Eh, for the cheapskates they're not cheap, but as said, use a decent tool once and you'll be hooked - oh wait, that should be crimped?  :P

I searched for a JST crimping tool that can handle wires sizes of #20 to #32

#32 is a bit too small, so a 28 might suffice.
As Blurp said, if you want to do it the right way and with the least amount of frustration required, just do yourself the favour and get one.

Shrink a short length of heatshrink tubing onto the wire/fitting joint, it will break off on that joint if not supported and there is some movement.

Bigger axle + bearing spacers were indeed what was needed:


Rode around the village. Doesn't mean much for testing the new suspension, but at least I could verify that it tracks straight.




Now I just need to do an oil change and then I'm ready  :thumleft:

Ja self nie seker waarom KTM die as moes verander nie.
Seker maar om meer flex te gee of iets.
As diameter het glo n groot verbetering op die YZ gemaak.

"Hulle is wel 2016 model met 26mm diameter as. (My 2017 het 22m diameter as)"
Dikker as dink ek, dus minder flex?
4mm dikker behoor heelwat minder te flex  :thumleft:

Been doing the oil change when I noticed some moisture where the coolant hose attaches to the radiator inlet.

Replacing the hose clamp did not solve it.. can it be that the hose itself is fukt?

Can yes, dunno...
Rubber hoses are fine but do give hickups from time to time, whilst sillicone hoses never do this!
If you've got enough time left get a set, blue would do nicely too  ;)

And when you're busy (and if not done so already) replace all crimped-type hoseclamps with normal old fashioned wormscrew types, stainless ideally, so when out & remote you will be able to help yourself instead of phoning a friend!

Remove the hose and check the radiator pipes maybe there is gunk on them causing a bad seal
