This is my 690.
Yes sir I do. I'm the Parts Manager there. I'll be there all day, just ask for Mike when you get there and thanks.Hey man, do you work at TJ's in Austin? I was in there in December (from San Antonio) and noticed your bike in the front lot.
I was in for some oil and grips before you guys shut down for the night. The KTM dealer in SA is a raging lunatic.
I might stop by next weekend, I'll be up for a day and I need some more oil. Can't keep the miles off... Your bike looks good!
Yeah I hate people like that, there just don't know how to work in this industry.Yeah, Powerhouse Cycles. It was in Bulverde, but just moved down to an even smaller place closer to town. Not sure how long they'll survive. The guy who owns it is clueless. He's a know it all, talks over you, won't let you say much, etc... Not a pleasant experience. Wish there were a place like TJ's down here.
I did the 1in Koude link, the Ohlins rear shock was the same length as the stock rear shock. I did move up the forks in the triple clamps .8 of an inch since I am racing I didn't lower it a full inch due to too much dive on hard braking into the corners. The stock SMC kickstand will be fine even after lowering it 1 inch.Sorry Guys, new to the forum, but my previous question was directed to the above post. I apologize if it was unclear.
"Awesome looking bike. I just got a 14' smc r myself. find it a bit too tall for city riding so I ordered the 1" koula link.
I'm curious what u did to correct the geometry after installing your kouba link. Did u move the front forks up in the triple clamp and if so by how much? Or did u just adjust the rear sag, especially since u have the oehlins shock in, did that correct the geometry for u?
Thanks for any insight and advise in advance
here's my new ride. drz on sale for anyone living in HK.. probs nobody haha"
I'm also worried about the side stand becoming too long, making the bike too upright and therefore unstable when used. I use the bike to commute in city traffic so any insight into lowering and making the bike a better city ripper and user friendly daily driver is appreciated.
