Another SMT in south-east of France

Hello to everyone

I have been enjoying my 690 Enduro R on the trails and small roads in this area, but I needed more power and comfort for road trips. The SMT was a natural choice, and it's been just 2 weeks but I am loving it. I'll keep the Enduro for off-road and trail raids, and the SMT for some fast fun and general sight-seeing. Switching between the two is natural, each has its place and (to me) each is the best bike for its program.

My 2012 SMT is stock with bash-plate (not sure if I'll be bashing it anything like the Enduro) and crash bars (I should call them something else...) and the 37L rear pack. I have an Akra on the Enduro so that will be my upgrade on the SMT in the future.

KTM LC 8 Engine improvements

I have a 2007 KTM Adv and plan on doing some head work this fall. Did not find many guys in the orange crush section who have done anything o the heads. I plan on a full port job, race cut valve job, and blueprint the throttle bodies. Currently the bike has Remus Roxx 2 into 1 exhaust, Motohooligan intake, RC8 throttle trumpets, 2007 Super Duke cams, Custom dyno tune, and running a Bazzaz auto tune that was installed after the Rc8 trumpets. The bike is around 97 hp rear wheel on dyno. I want to get more power out of the bike and hoping to pickup 7 hp with the head work and maybe advancing the cams. I plan on Wayne Tripp from Power Trip doing the head work and I will pull and install the heads. So any of you Super Duke, Sm guys with any head work have any advice and how much of a difference did it make for street use?

Good lookin bike

quite like the sump guard, it is a bit useless on a road bike...but it looks good, might get one myself now after seeing this pic

Fitted my Wings NOS exhausts today, these things look absolutely brilliant and they are a bargain compared to the Akra's (about half the price)

Put on some Rox risers and some SW foot pegs last week. Pegs are great. Need to get away from the snow for a proper test.

I forget if I've asked here; has any one tried the Beowulf cans?

They do if you're tall. I'm 196cm, I had to lower the pegs a little to get my knees onto the tank. (wearing knee pads)
