Stock bikes are very smooth, but nowhere near as fun as their well breathing, well exhausting siblings.

Heads up - If one of you guys wants an SE (or maybe one of your friends does) there's a 2007 for sale in the Flea Market for $5400
It's in north Florida...

Zip ties would probably melt eventually - if not immediately. Long hose clamps are probably too wide to slide through the heat-resistant hose.

Next? Maybe wire? Tips appreciated.
worm drive Hose clamps.

These are what I have. Dammit, I can't get it to link directly to the muffler slider page.

I have the Full Sliders on the Akra's good fit. They are $$$ but made of a very tough plastic/rubber tubing, won't roll-up or crush like rubber tube.

Only available in black

Giant Loop Hot Springs http://www.giantloopmoto.com/product...gs-heat-shield

Not sure what bags you're going to use. Giant Loop are a good choice. Some of their bags come with Hot Springs or Hot Springs can be purchased separately.

Do 990 Adventure R or S fork springs fit in a SE?

Jetting for 6000 feet altitude

I just got an 08 SE and I had my local KTM dealer rejet my bike for our altitude 5-6000' asl it came from 750' asl. Problem is they admitted they dont know much about the 950 SE and the jetting is now so rich that my jacket and back pack smell like an exaust pipe after riding. Does anyone have a set up for this elevation or have a good service contact in northern CO. The bike is getting 28 mpg is this normal or part of the jetting problem. It has an uni 950 filter and Leo Vince exaust system. Thanks in advance for any help.

I can tell you 28mpg sucks! I get 40-45 and I'm 290lbs and ride it like I stole it.

Sounds like they have gone totally the wrong way, should be leaning it out not adding it in.

We get 40 - 45 out of Maya two with luggage and we are not totally aerodynamic!

Give Ken (Head2Wind) at ADV Machines a call. Great service and his kit worked wonders for my SE. I live at 5000' and my bike runs crisp and clean. Re-jetting the SE is such a time consuming pita that the added cost of his kit compared to buying and trying different jets on your own or paying the labor for a shop to rejet makes his kit sooo cheap in comparison.
