If you do that you propably have to move your regulator/rectifier. It could get fried easily when trapping the heat under the seat. Unless those pieces direct more air to the reg.

The suspension travel is different. The 950 SM manual says it has a travel of 200/210 and the SMT has only 160/180. So it might not work.Or if it does it'll drop the bike a lot more then that 25mm.
