Anyone know where I can order jets for the 950sm? Not a jet kit, just random main and pilot jets.

Never2old4fun,

I think I answered you on another forum!
But, 2 175 mains would be good. 2 175, and 1 180 main would be great.
Very considerate of you for considering!

I haven't been able to find Dzus receptacles that would work all that well.

So Walter, seein's how you have both bikes, what do you think it would take to fit the SE exhaust pipe to the SM?

If I could get those parts to fit my SM, I could fit a skid plate and more easily justify some spoked 19/18 wheels for my SM and not worry about the exposed undercarriage.

Cause I really wish they would have stuck with this exhaust:



And I TOTALLY dig this:



Thanks for the pic of your bike, Brent!

Too much work to make it fit. Besides, as I posted earlier in the thread (iirc)- a KTM representative said they fitted the pipe on the SM to get more and better hp/torque; more fitting for the street bike (as well as being more passenger-friendly/. The power difference between the two is noticeable- not that the SE is slow by any means: but I like the feel from the SM more.

Otoh, if we didn't have a the current SM setup as reference, we probably wouldn't think the SM was slow with the SE pipe.

I'm convinced that the SE is a better/wider use "twofer" base than the SM- but that the SM would always be a better streetbike because it's suspension and geometry is better suited for pavement use. But if I was reduced to having just one, it would be the SM because of that and the fact that I could still have fun on unpaved roads.

PS: Brents' setup did indeed look great!

Well, I'd bet if/when I bottom this thing out and flatten the exhaust, it's gonna be a LOT slower than a non-smushed SE pipe! I'm not concerned with top HP numbers. I am concerned with a little added versatility, and there's no new bike on my horizon, so I'd like to mod what I have to suit me.

Sometime when you're taking pics, could you shoot some close up pics of that side of the motor and oil tank, etc? I'd like to see the differences up close and make some plans. Is that an SE oil tank on the high pipe prototype? Thanks for the info!

The hp/torque improvement was in the midrange, from what I recall them saying.

I'll try to take some detail pics the next day or two.

Pipe swap might be doable...

Here are the pictures-- will require about $700 worth of pipes if you use KTM pieces (or the aftermarket 2 into 1 header; which would be good if it works, and no more expensive)

Awesome!! Thank you very much Walter, this is very cool of you to do!

As I thought...totally do-able. I'd want to change the oil tank as well so I can put the skid plate on it...hmm...how about that cool inner fender on the SE? Would that bolt up to the SM as well?

Know of anybody parting an SE? He he he...doubt it!

Thanks again!


*edit* BTW, I've saved the pics, so if you want to dump them off your server, feel free.

FYI, I found main jets here for a good price:

Hi guys this is my first post!

I have had my 950sm for a week and already damaged the pipes!!

I'm suessing there isn't an off the shelf high pipe available nor a bash plate!
I guess I'll have to try and fabricate something!

Cheers

with all due respect

Really, folks, the SM is a street bike, so you don't need a high pipe or a bash plate. Yes, it rides well on graded dirt roads, but basically any bike will if you don't mind it getting dirty.

If you want to ride in the woods, do what Walter did and get a bike with some clearance, some suspension travel, and a decent bash plate.

And if you can only afford one bike, and want to have a real dual sport, then the modern version of the TransAlp is the bike for you. The SE.

Then all you need to convert from street to dirt is to put a true knobby on the front. The SE keeps up with singles in the woods with a knobby on the front.

Just saying. Seems silly to spend $700 on exhaust and oil tank modifications to bash your street bike on some rocks!

Sorry for the interruption. I'll slide back into the SE threads!
