Installed Pelican 1520's with Happy Trails mounting pucks and finished with new FMF Q4's on my new to me 06 950 ADV. The FMF's seem to have improved the throttle response upwards of 3500 rpm and I can at least hear the motor now

One of the reasons I moved to warmer climes - what did I do to my KTM today?

Rode it!

Rode the 950 to work. Smiled the whole way there and back.

Rode the 950 around the block. Worked better than ever. Grabby clutch when cold gone. No leaks. No drama.

Gonna ride it to work. 30 degrees and a chance of snow showers.

Rode my KTM (actually all 3) today (sorry for all those snow bound - I used to live in snow country, NE, IN, OH, OK - winter is the best time to ride in TX).

There's a special place in Hell reserved for those that taunt the weak, infirmed, mental defectives, and snowbound motorcyclist. Don't worry Dirtjack, my Dad (and his 87 degree high temp yesterday in the Hill Country BS) will save you a seat if you're late to the party.

Oh, picked up some 6061 so I can beef up the rear subframe on my SE today, since I sure as hell ain't riding it due to this mini ice age here in the PNW.

I looked at my 950 still covered in dirt from Baja wiped a bit off the silencer with my finger and thought I should clean her up a bit. Na "F" it. Shes a dirty whore. lol. Its raining I'll take her for a ride into SF and sprinkle some baja love onto the bay area roadways.

$75 Non-S Center Stand (complete and in great shape) from an inmate:


Thick mild steel bushings (snug fit)


1" .90 tubing cut to 33mm is a .05" larger than the 24mm tubing used with the center stand. No biggie. Dry fit:


Drilled 5/16" rosette weld holes in the center stand and filler tube so I could weld the bushing inserts in place for strength, in addition to welding the circumference of the butt joints. Welded, primed and painted. Not my best work (in fact it looks like shite), but strong, and works perfect.


Already had lots of tube and bushings, so only out $75. Sure beats $350.
