I crossed a stream where the water came up to my knees while standing on the pegs. My V Strom riding buddy refused to try it--so I had to turn around and cross it again. No problem for the KTM.

I would think not as you would have to change the ECU as well, but I could be wrong. What year is your 990?

Great video Lumpin 3rd. I broke my hand riding my dirt bike and it will be a few weeks before I can get back on the 950 Adventure. Though the video is not as good as riding--it was enjoyable. Thanks.

I tried the two into one with the stock canister (muffler) on my 950. I could definitely feel a power loss. I now have a single Akrapovic and it runs about the same as with two stock canisters.
