Brand new to me; got it yesterday. 2009 SE with less than 10,000 km on the clock. Previous owner never took it off-road

I don't understand why anyone would buy this bike and never take it off road. I've had mine for about a year and it was the same deal. Previous owner said he had it down 1 dirt road and that was it. Not that I'm complaining.

What she looked like when I got her. Completely stock except heated grips...that I removed.



What she looks like now

Hey folks,
Hoping to get an adventure bike before the end of the year.
Question is.
Does the 950enduro do ok on the street say 50/50 dirt street. For say 300mi days?
I already have a full on dirtbike and will be keeping that. Just like to do some adventure type trips.
Really lie the concept of the 950r cause dirt will always call to me.

The 950SE is, in my very humble opinion, the best bike on the planet. Road manners are fantastic. Dirt, it's even better. I ride my SE on a trip this past summer a d averaged nearly 500 miles a day. Several days, nearly 800 miles. Thousand of miles of slab and never once did I wish I was on a different bike. Turn off onto dirt and its utopia. If you can find one, just get it.

well, Im just doing some tests, for hanging out, you know, Im bored

I removed the air box


and put two oiled bombardier filters this way


I had to bend them a bit to fit under the seat properly

and it worked



well, now the bike runs too thin, need to change carburetors settings, but that will be done soon

ATA, did you remove the trumpets or did you fit the filters on them?

well, this was just a test
the bike runs at mid and high range really really strong but this aint a good set up for the rainy and steepy terrain we got around here.
Its not about the more HP you can gain (5% exhaust+free air filter), its the response..... extremely immediate, perhaps perfect for dry and open wide terrains
