The big KTM 990 SMT thread -- riders check in w/ photo!
 
There are a couple of 990 SMT threads floating around already; I'm starting this one as a ADVrider home base for SMT riders to swap technical advice, etc. like the other single-bike threads.

Other SMT or SMT-related threads on ADVrider include:

Hi, I only picked mine up a month ago, it's an 2009 demo. I wound a couple of turns of preload into the rear shock and set it to the sports setting, It feels like it is handling better than the 950SM that I had.
The extra power is fanfargintastic.

The SMT bag is this one http://www.wolfmanluggage.com/Tail/peak_tail_bag.html

It is expensive but fits perfectly.

The Adv bag is http://www.ventura-bike.com/products.aspx?code=P0110
It is specially for the rack which takes bigger bags but the rack does need moding to fit with pannier racks.
There is a bit more on it here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=522081

BUMP. I know the 990 SMT is on sale in America now; someone posted on another forum that he bought one a week or two ago.

So, any inmates riding a shiny new SMT? :ear

I want to see a picture of a SMT with factory hard panniers (boxes, not the little things in promo pics here), bash plate, tank guards and/or centerstand.

This is an SW Motech promo pic as the stickers show but the "KTM" hard panniers are SW Motech items. As are the bash plate, tank guards and the centerstand.

List of threads updated.

The tanks panels are the same as the 990 SM ones so you can make it black with just 'KTM' on it or they do white panels with 'SMT' on them.
As some_finn pointed out all the parts are SW Motech but great quality and can have bash plate and centre stand fitted together (with the right combo of nuts, bolts and spacers lol).

Oooh I friggin love this bike. It's on the wishlist.

Chuckracer 05-21-2010 11:18 AM

Anybody here have any time on a 950 SM and one of these? Can you compare suspension between the two? I loved my SM, but the horrible suspension was eventually a deal breaker for me. I'm hoping KTM and/or WP did a better job valving this one for the real world.
