The rad still has to be shifted to remove the tank, but it should allow an easier tank removal. just some more food for thought.
I thought I was going to be the first one to try the 08 fan on the 09. Now that it has been done, I feel better about ordering it.
As far as the subframe bolts go, the dealer said bring the bike by and they would order a new tank. We will see. The bike spit a countershaft seal today so I will have to stop in.

Subframe. About 60% spin from new. Mine did.

Be careful tightening your chain. The KTM's always had to run a sloppy chain to counter stop this seals going. Mine is set a bit sloppier than std.

Cheers for the feedback piggd. I've had countless occasions when the guys here have helped - I am just happy that I have had the chance to return the favour!


BTW Has anyone mounted their tyre levers (tyre irons for yanks) to the bashplate under the header yet? Looks like a great spot to fit a set of Metzler or Ballards ultimate levershttp://www.ballards.cc/Text/12028792...CATALOGUE-2008.

I have also fitted a shorter bash plate mount bolt as mine was a bit close to the rocker cover for comfort....

Maybe its possible to leave it attached to the tank in all R&R situations.
I was thinking along the same lines, when you see pic like this.



I took mine apart completely and luckily did not have the spinning problem.

RE: Tips & Stuff

I forgot to mention that Nizzo mounted his on the right hand side, so he wouldn't have to much wiring back through the frame once he hooked up the thermoswitch. I hope to mount mine on the left, as I'll use a manual switch. The left rad has the cross over tube at the top and and a bottom hose only. The right hand one has the thermostat bypass, and its much busier there, so I thought the left would reduce the chance of Mr. Murphy visiting.

I'll remember the 12 mm wrench..seems too easy..you sure?

Enjoy the ride Dale....-25 this morning here with a 35 km wind...no riding for this cat today.
