I love em. My Front Karoo 2 T lasted just under 7,000 miles & the Rear Mefo
lasted an Amazing 5,300 miles. That outstanding for a 950 in my book.

Finally got it runnig after beeing down for almost three months due to engine problems, lack of motivation and broken foot from a crash with the XR.

This is how the 950SM should have been from factory, spoked wheels, no exhaust under the engine and one big rotor with large caliper and radial brake master cylinder.

After 5000 km's om the XR, it feels silly fast

On a flat surface that is ok, but when the surface is not regular, the bike can fall. I'll modify the kickstand. Thanks dad2bike!

Brown Dog, I was not sure about the look when I bought the wheels. But I had a good deal on those used silver wheels with the rotors. I was looking more for blacks wheels but finaly, I really like the silver one.

Last week I dropped my 950A 2 times in the woods, once in the water. This weekend while muddying up the 640 I came home to find my sweet wife had washed and cleaned my 950 for me, top to bottom .

Now if I can just get her to change the oil....
