    MM to OZ Calculator

    Pour the oil in until it is near the top of the fork, bleed the fork. Then use a hose and syringe to remove the excess. I usually mark the hose at the height I want the fork oil level to be, slide the hose down to the mark and suck out the excess oil.
  2. Would be better to order the R & D bowl. Works heaps better than original and can be easily adjusted.
  3. The bike has done 150hrs. All battery and earth leads are tight. Will check fuel pressure. I made a gauge setup to check pressure. Have not checked it recently. No would not bump start even on long downhill. Will check charging to make sure the stator is charging. Old battery would wind bike over and not start after 1/2 day riding. Only started then when Jump starting. Used a mates battery the next day then only had trouble once at the end of the day.
  4. Yep disconnected the witch. No difference
  5. I would have thought if it was a pinched wire it would stop randomly while riding. It only fails to restart when turned off. Runs fine when running
  6. Was on a ride the other day and fell off and tumbled with bike back down the hill. Started the bike and rode around 80m then pulled up with the group and changed the bent break lever. Bike would not restart. Turned over fine ( sounded like normal turn over speed ). Would not bump start. Checked the obvious, fuses, kill switch, fuel line connector no go. Took it back to cars and jump started fine. Borrowed a battery from another rider for the next day and worked fine for most of the day. Only once after a long technical uphill we regrouped and it would not restart. Tried bump starting down the hill but no go. Then tried the button again and it started. Was thinking it may be the tip over sensor as it only happened after I fell. Any thoughts
  7. Mine is over 2 years old ( 500 exc 17 ) with no issue. Have never charged the battery. Winds over heaps when its below 0 Deg Cel before it starts. Hey have not had crank handles on cars for years Pete

    how fix crappy ktm wiring?

    I had same thing on my 17 500exc turn left and lights go out. I only noticed because I had the GPS hooked up to the parking light and it kept connecting and disconnecting. Found the bad earth ( brown wire ) behind the headlight so I just sent the earth directly to the speedo mount on the top triple clamp. No problem since.

    Who has UN-Tubliss'd?

    I had the Gen 1 on my bikes for about 3 years. Only had 1 high pressure failure and that was after a tyre change and it blew that night in the workshop. I found that I got more punctures especially in the front. Easy to change tyres but different to everything else. I then went to Mousses for around 3 years with a number of brands some good others not so good. Found some would flatten out, others would shrink dramatically while others worked well. I found the Mousses the easiest to change, once I learnt how and had the 3min tyre changer helped. I found that not being able to adjust the pressure for some difficult conditions made things harder than they needed to be. I then ran tubes for about 18months with no issue. But during a reccie ride last year I needed to run low pressures on some slippery steep and off camber single line and was concerned about pinch flats. I fitted the Gen 2 Tubliss a couple of months ago and have been running low pressures mainly on the rear. The front feels a bit off with low pressure so still run them around 11-12psi. I fitted new Goldentyres with the Gen 2. The front got 2 rip flats 26km apart but was able to fix with 3-4 ropes in each hole and the tyre is still up and working. Love being able to run low pressures on the rear without the fear of pinch flat

    Confirming cam timing on RFS

    Marks on the outer edge of the top cam sprocket ( Just inside the chain, front and back ) should line up with the upper edge of the head. Yours looks good, they cant be exact as the camchain wears the marks will be out a bit. Nowhere near a tooth out
  15. In the winter it does get cold, although not as cold as you guys. When its -4 deg cel the Lithium batteries struggle, they dont like cold weather and struggle until they warm up a bit. Unlike the lead acid the Lithium need short prods on the starter and you can hear them getting stronger each time. I think Lithium do struggle when its really cold though
