"You know your a 950 rider when the other bike just sits."

Yeah, my Ténéré just sits and sits and sits. It's a great bike, but it has made me appreciate my 950 Adventure all the more.

I contacted Jack and asked which kit I would need for my 2006 KTM 950 Adventure. His response, "Hi, Any of the FH020AA kits will work."

So that's what I ordered. Hope that's correct.

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 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.
