I prefer the wider SM gear ratio on the road over the SE. Throw on some bags, skid guard & hand guards and it can be an Adventure bike.
Whoa....you mean you acheived an appreciable amount of lowering without buying a thing for your SM? Just by dialing out all of the rear preload and sliding your forks an inch? What is your new seat height?
Has anyone tried the KTM hardparts package for lowering an SMT? It's less than $300 and contains fork springs and ccartridges, and a rear spring.
