*40 Days* KARK SERVICE (Thread title changed!)
« on: December 15, 2010, 06:24:00 am »
15 Days.

360 long and sleepless hours. Oh the pain of seperation, which relentlessly sears my torn soul.

I have deperately tried to claw my way through each interminable minute, knowing that my strength will eventually fail me.

I have stared at the ceiling night after night with dead eyes, my skin crawling with a thousand spiders in my addicts curse.

It will end soon. It must.

You're obviously in great pain. Can't someone lend you a gun?

hey who moved this to jou ma?

Here's the story. Bike's been at KTM 15 days for overheating.

Result just out....

thermostat!!!

Oh, here's the best part. It's on order and will take three weeks to get here. I can now pick up my overheating bike, and take it back to KTM when they get the thermostat.

speachless!!

Would it be possible to remove the thermostat in the interim, causing the bike to run cooler longer on startup?

sorry  ;D

But based on the first 4 post it actually belongs in the Comedy section.
Perhaps stick to bike related posts in the Bike Section?  ;)

PM Kamanya....he is the local KTM expert. Would like to know if it can be done too, just for future reference.

15 days to diagnose a faulty thermostat on an overheating bike?

In my defense - how was I supposed to interpret this as "bike related":   ::)

15 Days.

360 long and sleepless hours. Oh the pain of seperation, which relentlessly sears my torn soul.

I have deperately tried to claw my way through each interminable minute, knowing that my strength will eventually fail me.

I have stared at the ceiling night after night with dead eyes, my skin crawling with a thousand spiders in my addicts curse.

It will end soon. It must.
