I hear you, the stock light output is pretty low. I don't ride much at night but if I did I'm sure I'd be looking for an alternative head light.

Congrats! Nice looking SD. It seems a lot of guys are updating the headlight/mask on the old 990's these days.

My first street bike was a hand me down 1980 Suzuki GS850L that my grandfather gave me when he stopped riding. It hadn't been maintained in years at that point and it broke down and left me stranded...

I was just reading the forums and apparently the 07+ SD's came with the 16T front sprocket even though the manual says 17T. I'll have to take off the cover and see what it really is.

You did a nice job but highway pegs don't naturally come to mind as something I'd want on a bike like the SMT. Have you owned Harley's in the past or something?

I'm still not sure what KTM was thinking when they omitted the fork preload adjustment on this bike? My 2008 allows you to adjust the fork preload so I have no idea why the 2014 model wouldn't?

The 1290SDR is no Diavel. In the MCN naked bike comparison they say the SDR feels much lighter and more nimble than the Tuono V4R and I don't think anyone is comparing the Tuono to a Diavel.
