Very nice! How sturdy is that stuff?

I keep braking everything that does not have some sort of flex in it.

Quite flexible.

Hard to do with 1 hand but see how this printed part can flex without breaking:

Had so much fun in the thick, whooped out sand tracks, yesterday!

For those sections, unfortunately I have no pictures as stopping is no option in them   ;D
Te whoops are spaced about 1.5m apart, so you can imagine how deep they are. Man they were nice to ride!

The track goes through a nature reserve with a cattle grate. The grate sits a couple feet higher than the track, so you jump the grate, and enter the whoops at some speed. I remember having to negotiate a sharp S-bend, all whooped out, so you have to change direction in those whoops, twice in midair   :D
It sounds a bit gnarly, but dude, this scoot just operates that stuff.


The night before the ride, I was YouTubing  about Xplor forks and their mid stroke issues, strongly contemplating upgrading to better stuff, which will undoubtedly be better, but honestly, I'm OK with what I have for ADV riding.

I headed to Eindhoven. In the past I would be sitting on my 990 on the highway. Must say, the car is comfy.
I parked somewhere near Eindhoven and went south.

I love the fresh smell of pine in the morning


Lots of foresty areas around here but you have to mind the locals on their horses though


Making may way south, with as you can imagine, lots of water everywhere




Nice whooped track this, too bad you cant see much of it in the photo


Bike parked inside one of the whoops. These things are wide and go over the crest of the hill, bit of a dragons back


Things opened up a bit now, as I headed towards the thicker sandy sections.

Weet ik niet. Maar hij heeft m zelf van huis meegenomen, dus dan zal t m wel smaken. Zeker na een stoffig ritje.

Had some connection issues with my USB devices during the previous ride.


There was clearly some poor connection somewhere.
I decided to fit these components, in an effort to fix the issue + also add a USB-C connection for my other smart phone



Been searching for a proper fitment location of the fusebox. At 1st, I thought fitting it directly behind the screen might be good, but it looked a bit silly.


Placing it on the side could work, but I will have to remove some excess material


Lots of space inside the tower for all your wiring needs, you just need small hands  ::) This is where the RebelX design is better as you can remove one half of the tower, to get to all the wiring.


I use those industrial Velcro strips for attaching the parts to the tower. Nothing more irritating than parts slapping around in there.


View from behind the headlight; enough clearance it seems


Seeing as I added an additional USB-C cable, I needed to shorten all wires and properly route them to the fusebox


Tucks away nicely


One extra USB with its own 'garage'


Fortunately, my earlier 3d-printed cable housing can properly cater for the extra cable:

Time to service the forks  ;)


Way overdue as the old oil looks more like hot chocolate than oil   ::)


Lets fix that shall we?


Soft jaws came in very handy for this job.


I found two of these plastic shims at the bottom of the spring, in the second fork leg. And none in the 1st..


At first I thought hmm, this fork does not use a shim down there, but when stripping the second leg, I found the missing one.   :-\


Made me go back into the 1st fork leg again, to fit the missing part.
I would imagine this to make quite an impact as the lack of the shim will cause stiction as the spring turns back and forth during compression.


All done  8)


I replaced the oil and dust seals while i was in there.
Turns out to be a very simple job

Finally!
Stupid Corona had me waiting for months

Seat fitted.
I was a bit in 2 minds about how it might look, but I like it.

Definitely way more comfortable



Post Merge: 08-05-2021, 12:02

Seat is also taller, which helps.
Only need lower footpegs still

Fitted the Golan fuel filter.
Must say that I'm no fan of how KTM made the fuel line snake about.

Seems simply too long.
I might reroute this once I've emptied the tank.

The brake line bracket has been bugging me a bit.
At full extension of the forks, this hose fitting catches the radegarage bracket:



Lets fix that shall we   ;)



Will it be able to flex enough ???





Yep   :D



As can be seen, I still need to print a spacer, but it clamps really well  (to the fork)
The brake line moves freely, of course.

Moet hij klemmen of er doorheen glijden?
