When I saw the pics I was going to ask why it is that, here in Thailand, asking a mechanic to actually clean everything before starting to disassemble is like asking them to eat shit or something worse...then they wonder why new seals leak?
No insults intended Phil but when you took those pics I hope you told the "mechanic" that you expect to see shiny metal components before he starts to reassemble? I was going to pick up my truck on Friday...but noticed oil leaking and after closer inspection, every seal they changed and including the connections to the oil cooler were leaking...and this in a Toyota garage who's been redoing the repairs of the shady garage my insurance chose. Another lesson learned for me, I hope you do not have to go through the same...Cheers mate
looks like a pretty capably mechanic Phil, do you have the co-ords and number for the shop ?
Remapping a KTM is relatively easy with some free software called Tune ECU. Just need to buy a cable and get the map from somewhere, most are on the net already. Just save your original map and then upload whatever map you want. All the settings are configurable if you want to play.
I did it on my Triumph, both KTM and Triumph run Keihin EFI. The hardest part was having to carry my desktop PC out to the shed as Tune ECU is only comparable with windows and I have a MacBook....
Nice pics, Phil. 90,000 km isn't so much, though, is it? When I had my 950 Adventure in London the KTM head mechanic at Bracken (now sadly closed) told me the engine was only good for 80,000 miles (128,000 km) of normal road use. I take it you've been off-roading a lot, which I suppose must be much harder on the engine. Good to see it back on the road.Be a lot easier to load Parallels to run windows!
