Superbikeshop in Evansville, IN has an unsold white one last time I was there (3 weeks), I think it was a 2012.

I have a 2010 orange with 15k miles and some mods that I might be persuaded to sell. I haven't thought about it really, love the bike but still owe a few bucks on it and relief of debt is never a bad thing.
I've seen the one in Evansville, but the dealer wants 2013 money for a 2012 model... I also emailed them, but they never responded.

I'd like to find a well taken care of used model if I could, but mostly I'm looking for something in good condition or something I can add a little TLC to get to good condition. I will PM you my info...

Installed a 16 tooth front sprocket today. Really cleans up the engine on low rpms. And fun factor is increased! :)

I was really impressed with how much the LV Cans cleaned up the lower RPMs. I've heard the same about the Rottweiler intake. (The intake also adding more go!). I have one sitting in a box at home... Still haven't had time to throw it together. :(
Now that I'll be moving 2 hours closer to curved roads, I'll try out the 16t as well.

The low rpm annoyance really reminds me that this bike is not meant to drive around parking lots.

Went online looking for some adjustable levers for our CB500X. Also found a 16t sprocket for the 990. And some rear axle sliders, too. There are occasionally some nice little gems on Amazon.

I found 16t on Amazon but I'm unsure if it will work. Can you let me know if it fits. Thanks.

All of the 16t for the LC8s (Adv, SM, SMR, SD) had the same part number. As long as you're getting a 950/990 sprocket, you should be fine.

I went with the JT sprocket.
jtf 1904-16.

I haven't put on über miles on my SMT, but I'll tell you that I'm still far from being bored with it.
I'll suggest that your new bike will keep you happy for a long time.

Wicked remap the bike

The best mod for this bike is a remap, imho. If anyone is still hesitating, just do it, Kev's maps on ktmsmt.com simply transform the bike, and it takes just a few minutes once you have the cable. My bike was difficult under 3krpm, and a little hollow between 3 and 5krpm... now, I find myself staying in gear down to 2krpm and the bike is more responsive all round. The biggest problem with the standard maps, as far as I can understand the tuneecu software, is the switch to a different map method under 12% throttle with the standard maps, which is now removed. But Kev has done more changes, and the whole range response is better.

I will be doing this for sure. Bike is now in storage for the winter. :( I hope to be accruing parts over the winter. But first is new tires on the Jeep $1400, new tires on the bike, and 5000 mile service.
