Question KTM 990 SUPERMOTO-R Thread???

I've been riding a KTM 990 Supermoto-R since last fall.
It is still the only one I have ever seen.
I had to travel over 450 miles to get it because there weren't any closer at the time.
Is there anyone else out there who rides one of these things?

Has anyone started a 990 Supermoto-R thread, or is this it?





Photos by _Anatic . . . Thanx for the help Shane.




Windscreen, bashplate, front axle sliders & crashbars from KTM Hardparts.


Older style Akrapovics, G2ergo throttle, Evoluzione clutch slave, and Duke mirrors.



Of course the stock clutch slave had to go. Your stock one will fail before too long.

Me Too.

Yeah, I've had one for about a year. There are post scattered around. Most are in the SMR thread. It's one of the biggest threads on this site and was started for the older 950's. I even did a bunch of mods to mine after I bought it and created a how-to web site. SMR MODS HOW TO

I've never ran into any one with one either, which is nice I did see one at the moto GP races in Monterey last year, but thats the only one. There are a few people that have them as you will see when you look around this site, but there aren't many of us that's for sure.
Cheers

Yeah I just looked back at the other thread "950 Supermoto Chronicles", things huge, and mostly related to the Carb'd 950's. For the few people in the world that have this bike, I guess we deserve our own FI 990 thread.

I agree.
I had two KTM 950's.
The fuel-injected 990 is a different animal with a different personality (and a whole new look too!)

Yeah Tomoto,
That is a HUGE thread.
I waded around in it for a while to see if I could find any 990SM-R stuff, and finally gave up.








Thanx for the SMR MODS HOW TO in Post #2

2010 KTM SMR 990 Specs

Any good bike thread needs some base specs right?

Overview

After being out of the lineup for two years, KTM's big-bore supermoto SMR is back, this time with a 999cc V-Twin engine instead of the previous model's 942cc motor. The SMR offers an excellent combination of supermoto agility with the ample power and torque of its fuel-injected engine. The ergonomics provide an ideal seating position for upright sporty riding or back-it-in sliding. A low, narrow fuel tank allows the rider to scoot forward easily to weight the front end. The 990 SMR engine produces 115 hp and 73.8 lb-ft torque for a fun ride on curvy mountain roads or nice cruises through city streets. The two-colored seat, glossy fuel tank, orange powder coated frame, black swing arm, subframe, footrest, brackets and passenger handles all make this bike the center of attention anywhere you travel. The 990 SMR is equipped with a stainless steel exhaust system, carbon heat protector, smoked rear taillight, Marchesini front and rear wheels, Brembo brake system, 4-gallon fuel tank and multifunctional speedometer. The suspension is comprised of 48mm USD WP fully adjustable forks with TiAIN coated inner tubes and 160mm of suspension travel while the rear WP monoshock is fully adjustable with TiAIN coated piston rod and 180mm suspension travel.

(I borrowed a pic from your "how to" for post #1)




Yeah I had it on topic for a page or two, then ya know it went South and never came back. I cant even find those pages anymore there are so many. I thought that fence looked familiar, sweet. I'll put some post modded pics up tonight!

Seat

I,ve set the old girl on set suspension comfort settings for the rough roads here in Colombia.
Seemed reasonable,just stood up for a minute ever hour or so!
But I read somewhere that you can fit the gell seat from the SMT with a bit of chopping on the base plate of the seat.
Anyone else heard anything about this little trick?

Seat

turtle

The stock SMT seat should bolt right on, no mods necessary. The SMT seat is more comfortable for long hauls, but remember it is dished out, so you will sit lower in the bike, and you loose the bit of orange on the SMR seat that matches the frame. (probably already know that) The seat is actually cheap compared to other parts for this bike. (I'm still trying to swallow 200+ for a tank bag!) I plan on getting one (SMT seat) myself for longer stints. The only reason I don't have one yet I think is because its so easy to ride this bike standing up which helps a lot when your putting in a long day. I have my suspension set on the hardest sport settings, but I still wish it was stiffer. Of course the roads in Southern California are probably quite smooth compared to yours.

Oh yes

Yep those hard settings,ll have your teeth out down in Colombia!

I,m finding the injection quite smooth as well.once you get used to it,s sensitive nature!
Still got my old 2005 ADV to compare it too and if you,re not cack handed the two compare well!
I,m digging the ten minutes it take to set up the suspension as well,simple even for a numbnuts like me!

I have both the stock seat and KTM Ergo seat for mine.
They both feel fine to me, but I'm not using them for long straight hauls.
There really aren't many straight roads around here,
but lots of twisty roads, so I'm moving around on the seat a lot.

The Ergo seat looks a lot like the stock SM-T seat.
Are they the same?

Ha!

I don,t think there,s a straight road in the whole of Colombia! Maybe that,s why Iko the dealer here in Medellin just sold 3 990SMR,s and thats more than you,ve seen in the States for Petes sake!
You Gringos need to get out and educate the masses

And the g2ergo cammed throttle gives it even better control,
especially in loose dirt and gravel.
I use them on both the 690 and 990.
