  1. Had a great time riding this last week, no sooner than pulling into my drive way I tried to roll my 990 backwards to hose it off and I could hear my chain binding. A few days prior, I thought it may have been smoked while doing a 30 mph bump start. Anyhow, pulled it apart and the rear sprocket is smoked, front sprocket smoked, chain is K.I.A. Looking in my maintenance log (because I can't remember shit) It looks like the set only lasted 5K miles. I knowingly purchased what I can only assume is a Chinese sprocket set, and chain based on the fact it was only $95 for a 525 chain, 16t front, and 42t rear sprocket. I know people who ride fast, I have no illusions, I do not. I usually select the grade of parts I run based on what I think will suite the need. Out of curiosity I've read what other 990s are getting out of chain sets and it's incredible, some as high as 20K miles! However, that seems possible if your commuting or something like that but if your riding in a place like District 37 I just don't see that happening. I asked around about hours/miles for sprockets and some of my friends average 5K out the Ironman ones that are supposed to be bullet proof. This leads me to my next point. In order to increase the longevity of a sprocket, you would have to harden the material or use a hardened material in general. So again, I intentionally reordered another cheap chain and sprocket set. Here is why, I would rather change sprockets than wear the output shaft. I think of it in terms of a engineered failure point. When the drive sprocket is harder than the material that output shaft is made of then I feel that there is potentially a more expensive failure. For example, I use to run stock spicer u-joints on my drive shafts because they were cheap and easier to fix than a ring and pinion, or a t-case out put shaft. Something is going to wear out, no way around it... Note: I do regular chain maintenance. The bike is 2010 KTM990Adventure, has all the regular 990 engine type mods, cost wasn't the reason, and I do all my own wrenching. Thoughts, experience, anything, send it...

    Absolutely love this bike! The miles are adding up and its starting to show its age but boy has this bike taken me places. I would only consider the 1190R if I were to replace it.

    Just got it...good so far, but much more to come!
  5. Hey New here but thought it looked like a good spot to share a trip video. We rode a couple of bigger bikes on a Western States adventure this summer; a 2012 KTM 990 Adventure and a 2014 Triumph Tiger 800XC Looking for another good ride. Any suggestions? I'd like to do all of only 1 or 2 states and really get off road the entire time and explore. Link to video Western States Adventure KTM 990 and Triumph 800XC DUAL SPORT​

    Always wanted one, now never want to be without one
  7. Been looking around for a couple weeks and like what I see and read, especially the lack of certain words, (lets try to keep it that way). Got back into riding about for 4 yrs ago finally got the bike I wanted a couple yrs ago, ktm 990 adv, haven't had a lot of time to ride it off the beaten path, which seems bad since I lived in central Utah for 1 1/2 yrs, I'm back in Tn for now but heading to Mexico end of year, for an extended stay to help a missionary build an orphanage, if anybody wants to come help we have extra beds and plenty of floor space, then will ride through copper canyon on my way back, then my plans are to ride up to Utah, I did find plenty of places to ride in the mtns, spent plenty of time on horse back in them, also know good places in the Green river area of Wyoming, so anybody looking for something to do end of winter or early spring come on down and join me for the ride back I'm never in a hurry and usually have no dead lines anybody in middle Tn or southern Ky area want to ride give me a shout.

    Great adventure bike once the mods have been done. [IMG]http://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m514/csuzor/KTM/P1010688_zpsoyxtivmn.jpg[/IMG]
  9. We want this bike to do a lot of things; primarily to shred off road, but also to be a kind of rolling billboard for XLADV and some of the premiere sponsoring vendors and manufacturers out there. Before shot: You've probably seen a lot of bike builds done here and there and at the end of the day you have some kind of weird show pony that is completely irrelevant to the everyday rider. That is one of the main reasons I chose a 990; it's a bike that's already out there that you can pick up for around $8-$10k and still maybe have room in your budget to do a few nice things. I love my BMW GSA and would have liked to do a new one from the ground up, but then we'd be dealing with close to $30K and that is just out of reach for too many people. So what can you expect to see out of this project series? Let me lay it out for you... This bike will be a a lot of regional rides and events. Expect to see it, see pictures, see video. LOTS! We have a ride July 24th at Troy Meadow, our High Sierra ride Labor Day weekend and then KTM Rally in Crested Butte, CO, Horizons Unlimited in Yosemite in Oct, Taste of Dakar in Mar, Overland Expo in May and maybe a few more venues in-between like the IMS show in Long Beach, LAB2V, etc... Lots and lots of vendor discussion, photos, video of the build process and some insight from their perspective on what goes into their products, why they're designed as such, and measurable performance. I'm doing a pre-mod dyno run today to get a baseline power curve so we can see where we end up later. Lots and lots of questions and answers fielded and responded to from YOU, the big bike adventure rider. This is the place!
