Winter is coming and now would be a good time to take a walk out to your garage and take a look at the skis on your sled. Get the sled on it’s side and really check out the bottom of the ski sole. We see a lot of worn out plastic skis from riding on the edge of the road with one ski on the pavement or from letting your carbides wear down too far and then your ski sole gets chewed up in a hurry! At Petrie Motorsports we keep a good selection of carbides in stock and we can get you the new Slydog line of skis (below) for all the major brands of sleds. Check out this LINK for a listing of part numbers and accessories to build your cool custom skis.

Tags: Adventure Accessories, KTM 1190 Adventure, UNI air filter
With the introduction of the KTM 1190 Adventure there has been a rush of new products on the market to fill a demand for cool new “performance products” that owners think they need on their bike. One of those items that typically will give some small performance gains is a new, less restrictive air filter, or at least one that is easier to clean.
I have seen several sites selling the new Uni air filter for the KTM 1190 Adventure and it’s being sold as the “greatest thing since sliced bread”. This filter is coming from Uni – Australia and is not available from Uni – USA. I recently was at the Parts Unlimited Expo and Uni USA was in attendance and I spoke directly with their representative as to why the filter was not available in the USA? There were several reasons:
1) The OEM filter design is poor (in their opinion) and does not provide enough filter material/space.
2) The Australian Uni replacement filter design is just a small perimeter filter with some foam that is pushed into the intake tubes and they feel that that will become very restrictive and not work as intended.
3) Due to the poor OEM design, and the problems with dirt ingestion that some customers are having, Uni USA does not want to take on the liability of potential engine damage and the possibility that a customer would claim it was a result of their filter.
So take that for what it is worth and be cautious about what you are putting on your bike. Not everything you see has been thoroughly tested and you may be rushing head first into a problem.

Pretty much the hottest new bike out there is the KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R and there are a lot of them hitting the trails and roads.

- If you’ve ever taken your carbs apart you probably have had the problem with the inlet connection leaking when you put it back together – it’s a major leak when this happens!
- The stock o-rings typically will not re-seal once they’ve been taken apart
- The only way to get these o-rings from KTM is in a carb rebuild kit that is around $150.00 – not very cost effective
- This kit has the six o-rings you need to re-seal the carb inlet tubes in the carb for KTM 950 LC8 motors

2002 KTM 640 LC4 Dual Sport for sale. This bike is set up for the long haul but works just as well for a quick run to the corner store. It has the Aqualine Safari 27 liter tank plus a Rotopax 3 gallon reserve tank w/mount on the CJ Designs rear tail rack. The wheels are Woody’s built 17″ rear and 19″ front, tubeless, Excel rims w/heavy duty spokes. Rubber is Continental TKC 80 front and rear and is about 75%. Exhaust system has been ceramic coated, hand-guards are Enduro Engineering bark busters, heated grips, Shorai battery, windscreen, KTM aluminum skid plate, KTM comfort seat, Duke mirrors and quite a few other little touches to make this a great travel bike. The bike is equipped with aluminum paniers and luggage rack. The hard luggage removes easily and you can run soft luggage (Wolfman) on the same racks.
The motor has had a nearly complete rebuild – the water pump seal failed on the last big trip and had to be ridden back some distance in that condition so the cam shaft had some damage. The camshaft and top end were replaced, all the lower end bearings were replaced and the piston rings were replaced. As well as a new water pump and stator assy. The bike has 13,500 miles on it and it has been out on a few rides since the rebuild and everything is in good working condition.
Whether you are riding over to your neighbors house or headed out on your next big adventure ride, this bike can handle it and you can pick it up for a song-and-a-dance! The price was $3,995.00 and the owner has decided to reduce the price (he has more than that invested in the bike in the last 3 years) to facilitate a quick sale. $3,000.00 takes it home!
Come take a look at the bike @ Petrie Motorsports, 950 County Rd. H, Elkhorn, WI, or call (262) 723-5518 or email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
