I crashed 08 990 Adv. need parts help

Crashed my '08 990 Black Adventure and I would appreciate help getting it back on the road. The windshield (CEE Baileys) was destroyed along w L signal light; did some other damage to Left side engine crash bars and luggage rack. Need help finding parts. Been looking for another windscreen but not much out there. Cee Baileys is no longer making moto screens... Oh, I'm fine, thanks for asking. Just 4 broken ribs, punctured lung and a tension pneumothorax. Now I keep a needle decompression kit...

Pannier top protection

Hi Folks,
Just got a beautiful new set of the mid size ( 36L 40L) Bumot panniers. The lid tops are 7" by 16". Tech Spec doesn't apparently make Snakeskin in that size and their sheets are 12" by 13". So am I going to have to cut a sheet to 7" by 13' and put up with an 1 1/2" gap at each end or does anyone else know something or another product I don't know of. Thanks for any help.

Time to clean out the closet! As info, I'm 165-170 lbs, and about 5'8". I wear 16" neck and 33" sleeves. These two items are different sizes, but both fit me well. Both items are shipped from Atlanta, GA. I live in a smoke free home, but we do own a cat.

If it is not one thing….

Bike: 2008 GSA
Mileage: 60,000

ABS light came on today (solid), brakes work fine, hooked up the GS-911 and got this:

2 fault codes found:
24048 Pump motor defective
The fault is currently present.
24049 Power Supply to Pump motor faulty
The fault is currently present.

My friend Google tells me this is not good news....I am guessing I need to visit my friends at Modulemaster.com and get my ABS pump fixed...any alternate thoughts/suggestions? Smack it with hammer worth trying?

F750GS Pannier Recommendations

I’m looking to outfit my 750 with some panniers and not terribly sure who to go with. I want aluminium ones instead of the plastic. So I’m looking for your recommendations and real world experience.

I’ve seen that the 850GSA has aluminum panniers and a rack, is that available to the 750 and if so is just as costly or more so then aftermarket?

Relays and diodes, one for the electrical gurus

I have 3 relays sitting here I have no idea what they do. Neither does Clymer or Haynes.

The first is out of an '84 RT. It has coil across 85 and 86 and contacts bridging 30 and both 87 and 87 b. But there is a diode going from 86 (coil) to 87 pointing at 87. What does the diode accomplish?

The second is out of an '88 RT. Coil on 85 and 86, double NO contacts connecting 30 and 87 and 87b. Connection from 86 coil to both 87 and 87b with a diode on that line pointing at 87b. There also may...

BACK TO BOTS ~ KUBU ISLAND @ HIGH TIDE! (Southern Africa)

18-28 March 2016


“ No License, No ride!”.

These are the words we repeatedly drummed into our daughter, Roxy, who was well used to scooters in the Indonesian traffic and a little bush riding but had never done the adventure side of motorbike riding with its excitement and discomfort.

Roxy surprised us all by passing her test first time...

Would the KLX 250 be too small for me?

Guys, I'm looking for my first dual sport bike after falling in love with the little TW200 that I bought for my wife. I'm in my 30s, 6' 1", and weigh 215lbs. I live in the central US at 450 feet above sea level and plan on doing 60/40 road and offroad riding. My road riding would strictly be two-lane roads, no interstates, and gravel roads. My offroad riding with be ATV trails basically. I have really loved riding my wife's little TW, but I feel like it's wound too tight to be riding on...

Old goose followed me home

I was looking for a Tonti frame 850T/T3 or G5, but when a nice Loop frame pops up cheap you have to go for it. April 1970 Ambassador. I had the chance to ride the bike 3 years ago and it ran well. Hasn’t been on the road since late 2016 but shouldnt be to hard to get going. Floor boards, leg shields and Buffalo fairing. Should clean up nice.

ICBC motorcycle insurance

I just came from another province to the BC, and I need now to register a motorcycle and get insurance.
I was unpleasantly surprised that insurance for my (rather old) motorcycle would cost more than my new Grand Cherokee 3.0 TD!

At the same time, they generally do not take into account my experience, the brand, market price and age of the motorcycle - only the engine size. WTF?? :dirtdog

Of course, I can ride for some time with plates and insurance from another province,...

KTM seat bolt (easy remove)

I’ve got a KTM 14’ XCF-W 250 and I was wondering if anyone makes a seat bolt that doesn’t require a wrench? There’s just a center bolt to retain the seat down and I’m looking for one that doesn’t require me to find an 8mm socket to take it out.

Is there such an animal out there, or do I need to do a little fabrication to my stock bolt?

Rough ride on the hwy

Hi guys, I'm new to adventure bikes..forgive me. Having spent the last 13yrs on a GSX1400 I'm used to road bike feel. I've just purchased a used (3000km used, so near brand new) KTM 1190 R.
The KTM feels like it has unbalanced wheels above 75km/hr. The tyres are new ( motoz) and have been dbl checked for balance. The rims are true as well.
Question is,, is this just the feel of an adventure bike with 50/50 tyres on it? I want to do a 5000km trip in 2 months, all tar,, but this vibration...
