  1. KTM fork conversion fitting Rugged roads adaptor help

    Africa Twin
    Does anyone know how to remove the lower triple clamp from a set of ktm 950 forks? I have the bearings off but the steering tube is stuck solid and my finger cant't take another whack with the lump hammer. Also when I get this off how do I fit the adaptor back in? Thanks

    Bought a new pair of gaiters for the RD04 and just checked the price on the gaiter clamps / clips - £11:83 each!!! That's £47.82 for what are effectively 4 thin jubilee clips, for goodness sake. Needless to say, I shall be looking for alternatives.

  10. Piston rings

    Dominator / FMX
    Can anyone recommend where I can get a set of standard size piston rings and a ring clamp for my RD02. I just did the valve stem seals and re-lapped the valves so I may as well do the rings as the base gasket was included in the top end gasket set I bought.:thumbup:
  11. Separating the silencer from the downpipes on a 600

    Having looked at a schematic of the exhaust system on my 98 600, I was expecting to see a clamp with two bolts which I could loosen and then separate the two parts so I could slide on a shiny new end can. However, as you can see this is not the case. Am I missing something?

  16. Fork bolts. DAMN!

    Mechanical Advice
    A quick inspection pre-MoT revealed that one of the three bolts protruding from the bottom of the right fork to take the clamp plate around the front axle has sheared. Consequently the clamp plate is secured by the two others and the remaining bolt which screws into the fork. Is there any way...
