Canisterectomy, SAS removal and H2W jetting

Alan,  Here's the pile that came off my bike.   I can help you through this process remotely, or hands on if we can get together.

Jason,

Thanks again for the offer!

Let's see if we can get a tech day set up before the September ride, then we'll go from there.

Wow that is allot of stuff. You always hear guys say the engineers that build these things are smarter than most of us which might be true but I am always amazed at the stuff guys come up with to make their bikes more reliable and run better.

This crap is all to meet EPA emission standards, including the super strict California stds.    What it is in reality is a load of carp feces that gives you many more potential problems and a bike that doesn't run as well as it should.

Credit for the "carp feces" description goes to cpmodem, ruler of all things KTM (see advrider)

There is some debate about the necessity of removing the cats with SAS removal, but I would do it to get rid of the heat if nothing else.   I don't think de-catting the stock cans is very hard.

I can try!  I've never touched an SE before but if anything it should be easier than working on an ADV.

If you EVER want to sell that SE, let me know. I know it's well taken care of.  ;)

Did you add the pre-filter too?   I think its a crtical part of the H2W kit.
Mine ran great after installing it.

Good luck with the install, from what I've read doesn't sound too complicated. 

Just to be clear, I can't ride today...unless I get A LOT of shit done before lunch.  ;D  But I'll be out riding Sat and Sun for sure.
