Did you see the pics in DM47's link? Holy crap DM47! - those are really nice pics! What sort of camera did you take them with? I'm jealous how clean your bike is!

I ordered the 690 Enduro/SMC Touring Windscreen. I guess I'll figure out how to attach it when it gets here.

Thanks for the link! Ordered this today. There was a different one on ktmtwins.com, but it looked like it required that I drill a hole in the plastics, so I went with the Powerlet product you link to in your message.

I'm still hoping to put the plug on the left side of the frame (as opposed to the handlebars). Does anyone have experience with that?


On a related note, I put an SAE power pigtail on the bike last night do I could put it on a tender while I'm not riding it. When I did so, I found the battery terminal screws were loose enough to just fall off!

I was having a couple issues starting & stalling... I figured I was just a dope and couldn't operate a choke. I may still be a dope, but at least there's some other reason for the other things.

Powerlet makes some quality parts. I've had the same set for many years now (6+ i think) and still working great.

i used to have the one you ordered on my old 625smc

for my 950sm, i went with this one to try something different.. for me, i think i prefer the first one. i prefer the style and how the wind hits me. maybe i'll switch back next for spring.

Yes. I've wired Powerlet products on to half a dozen bikes. The BMW R1200ST that I have has two Powerlets on the handlebars, two on the frame for my daughters electrics and a cigarette outlet under the seat for air compressors. If you are close enough, I'd be glad to help. If not, ask questions and I will answer as best as I can.

Thanks. I just got a bit lucky with my point & shoot Nikon L22. Just enough natural light on the aluminum & silver, and used macro mode.

I'm a bit embarrassed it got noticed. Low mileage and S100 are the culprits back then.

Service / Repair Manual

Where can I get / buy the shop service manual for my 2007 950 SMR? Ideally, I'd like it as a PDF file. I don't mind buying it.

Thanks!

I had that mounted on my 950. I liked it. Pics are in this thread somewhere.

I took the stock cowl off, lined up the screen, prayed for the best, and drilled it.

My girlfriend just took her first street ride with her new endorsement and my 950SM. She had fun dealing with traffic and loved how easy the bike was to handle. Not bad "for a girl"...
