Looks great!
But i would think twice before painting the rear mounts. Look for pics, I've seen a couple and I don't think they look that great in orange.

Thanks and I agree. I was looking at it this morning and decided to just leave it at the crash bars.

Kissing the Top of the Stock 950 Windscreen

Front end washed out on me on the wrong bike , wrong worn tire, wrong wet single track, wrong event.

Ended up giving the top of my KTM 950 wind screen a big wet one thru the opening of my full face helmet.

Thought I might need a sew job and new choppers.

You might want to debur yours before your kiss.

I sent out your custom bags today. They'll certainly match the bars now. I never did stripes like that before on the bags, but they came out super nice. I really can't wait to see them mounted up on your bike. I'd just recommend using some Scotch Guard on the orange stripes to keep them from getting dirty because that fabric isn't treated.

In case anyone is interested, here's a teaser pic. I'm sure he'll post a better one.



I'll be away for most of June, but if you're interested, look me up at the end of the month and I can take an order.

That's the same paint I used on mine. It stands up to abuse VERY well. Including rubbing against the outside tire of a set of Duals on a Cement truck at about 40MPH.

Installed a left side Remus I got from DeapSea . No jetting changes and runs really well. Pulls strong all the way through. Still popping on closed throttle so the air screws will get turned out. Sounds better than the 2 -> 1 also. Much deeper and more even.,I like it.

Black Dog 2 -> 1 FS.

Thanks DeepSea, It was good meeting you. See on a ride sometime.

High fender mod ... done

People have made brackets for the fork guards to mount them but all I needed to do was use a heat gun and bend the plastic around a bit to get the outer two bolts to line up then drill a hole to bolt in the center bolt








Here's a part list from ktm-parts.com
60013025100 brake hose guide x2
60013025050 rubber for guide x2
54808020000 spacer bushing x4
4700109400030 Fork protector set 85sx
That was about $40 and the fender was another $40 and its from a 690 enduro R smc

Did the "Big washer" on the kickstand trick. Weld on the bottom for a super clean look.



Made a bracket to hold my Spot Tracker. ...
