Here it is. Runs good and starts right away. I know i have alot to learn about these bikes and riding them. Im not sure how they come stock so i dont really know whats been done to this one. Any beginer help would be nice. What would the first upgrade be? What needs maintnence? How should the shock setting on the back be at? I think it has 4500 miles on it. Thanks

Looks good! Probably the best 'mod' you can make is in getting a shop manual for it. As I remember, there are 2 or 3 drain plugs, and 2 oil filters on it. But honestly, we have lots of experienced KTM guys who will likely have the most answers about KTMs.

Nice looking bike. Now that I see the tires...I'll try to plan something more gravel road worthy and less killer rocks?

Nice thing about older scoots is you can pretty much find manuals, fiche, parts lists, old copies of service software floating in the sea of internetty and not have to pay a dime.


Getting "to know" your motorcycle is half the fun of having it. Then again I like to take things apart

I removed my link to the material, as I don't want to raise any ire . Sorry for that.

I fancy myself pretty good at searching for stuff, and am the self proclaimed king of pirated downloads (just kidding).

Ok, I'll spill the beans...

Solo that's a great looking motorcycle you've got there. I "ROFL'd" because my same link to copyrighted material was edited by our wonderful Admin Hodakaguy.

"No links to copyrighted material is allowed to be posted on the forum.
You can email him the link off site, just can't be done through the
forum."

I support this minor rule to help keep the forum alive and prospering. Let's help Hodadaguy by not posting links to copyrighted materials in the forum.

Solo - sorry if this detracts from sharing your ride with us. It's a great looking motorcycle and I'm sure you'll be able to search and find many freebies online. You can PM me if you would like to exchange emails with some good starting points.

Regards,

Griz

Honestly, I didn't even think about that. So, mea culpa, I earnestly apologize.

Back on subject;

SOLO, your bike is sick!

I have a set of off road tires also. i just dont have a place to change them. My girlfriend goes back to tennessee at the end of the month to get her cbr 600 and some more of our stuff. We put all we could in the tahoe and headed here. Will these tires be ok for the ride this weekend?

This is my only mode of transpo right now. The gf is headed back to tennessee at the end of this month to get the cbr 600rr and more stuff. We put what we could in the tahoe and headed to Seattle. Would have been nice to ride bikes up the coast.
