Great job!

One suggestion before you go into full production:
Try your latest rev onto several different bikes, not only your own.
I am making it capable of fitting either the 950 or 990. And I'm looking for an SE-R to test fit one on right now.

Don't worry brother, I'll have one waiting for you when you get here.

OK everybody, it looks like Friday came a day early. Got the call at Noon today that one of the rev 4 brackets was ready for testing so I bolted out of work to pick it up.

First stop was my buddy sloMark's work where I tested it on his 990 in the parking lot so it would pass the Hall Effect switch bracket test. It fit perfectly.

Then home to put it on the old 950. It fit perfectly as well. I feel much more confident in this rev over the previous one's because of the addition of the centerstand bump-stop relocation holes. The bike feels much more solid with grade 8.8 bolts in the bottom holding the bracket in place instead of just the bump-stop all-thread and jam nut.

Here are some pics before mounting:













It will use the existing sub-frame mounting hole with a new bolt that I will supply, as well as new bolts to be installed in the centerstand bump-stop locations:





There is plenty of clearance to the chain (Bike is on centerstand with wheel at maximum travel:



Bolted on before the bump-stop put in place:





The kickstand clears the swingarm no problem:



Even with the giant TT foot:



Bump-stops in place:





Centerstand up:



Bump-stops adjusted for clearance to new bracket:



Sitting on the ground:



No interference with centerstand when up:





Almost finished product (nothing left but the powder coat):







I ran 5 of this rev so tomorrow I will call the fab shop have him send them off to the powder coater so I will have a finished product to show all of you. At that point I will start a new thread in the vendor's section with ordering instructions.

For everybody that has contacted me already I will be in touch as soon as I know what the expected delivery date will be and you will be the first to receive one.

Thank you everyone for all your patience.

I'm pretty sure that there is no difference between the SE and ADV frames. I do not have an SE around to see in person so if there is anybody out there that knows please help with an answer.

I do know that the SE used the same Hall Effect switch that the 990's use so at least I have that covered.

I have an SE

I'll be putting mine on a 950 Super Enduro. I'll let you know right away if there's a problem. I thought this all started to fix the sloppy job KTM did on the SE side stand...

The bracket looks great. I'm glad you made the effort. Good job.

I just did a lookup on the part numbers for the different models. There are different part numbers for the '04 ADV vs. the '06 ADV vs. the '07/08/09 models. But I know that there is no issue with the ADV models.

As for the SE-R, the frames are a different part number from the ADV completely.

But based on what I can see from the part manual images, the differences are mostly in the upper sections of the frames and not the lower. The section that houses the footpegs and centerstand look identical so there should be no issue mounting my bracket on the SE-R.

Since I have a few weeks before I get the first production pieces, I am going to see if I can find somebody close to me that has an SE-R that I can test fit one on. Then I will be able to give you a definite answer.

If there is anybody near the Pittsburgh area and has a few minutes of time for me to look at your bike please let me know. I will not need to take anything off, just look at the attachement points to see if things will line up. Thanks.

It's a fix for both since the kickstand mounts the same on both bikes.

Chain clearance

Hi PABiker,

could you re-shoot the following picture(s) with the chain pressed down with your finger to show that it can not hit the bracket?

Otherwise looks great

No problem.

While sitting on the kickstand:



While on the centerstand:



I was pressing pretty firmly when it was on the centerstand and the closest part of the chain measured 3/8" from the bracket.

Any thoughts on a nylon "rub block" there, just in case?

I'm not sure there needs to be one but I plan on taking the bike out tomorrow and see if there is any issue.

If I have to, I can look into putting something in that area.

I'd say yes.

Design for the worst case scenario of a neglected chain much looser than spec - hey, it happens!

Or maybe just offer it as an option.

I will look into some sort of material that can be attached to that area. It would have to be glued on otherwise I will have to rev the bracket again to include mounting holes.
