The uni filter is a prefilter??? If yes, then remove it and go for a ride...
You have many options for jetting, just state if you want prefilter, stock filter or DNA etc.

H2W jetting is wonderful in terms of quality of throttle accuracy, but seriously lacking in the ooomph department compared to other options. What is fantastic in it and works in almost every airbox/filter setup is the bottom jetting it uses, as it fixes the low end torque dip.
However, if you're coming from H2W (as I did) and ditch the prefilter and main filter for a DNA main filter and the appropriate mains for your elevation, then you realise why the 950's where originally coming with 17/42 gearing....

Get a dremel and disc-cut a slot on the bolt so you can insert a screwdriver. The smaller the disc the better so you will not engrave on the reservoir itself.

I couldn't get mine out. I finally scored the cover and broke it off then used pliers to remove the screw. If it comes to that make sure you have a replacement.

I've heard 500 or so, but I don't think anybody actually knows for sure

Great Question, its been asked many times. I have never heard a difinitive number, mostly just a lot of speculation as to what actually is the total number of SE's world wide.

From what I recall, apparently most, if not all of the bikes were manufactured at the same time. I seem to recall reading that a few were made in 06, and the remaining 07,08,and 09's share the same production dates. That may not be completely accurate and I cannot verify where that info originated...
The 09's were fitted with a few extra stickers and assorted bolt on goodies and called the Erzberg special edition. My 09 had the original stickers under the Erzberg "special" stickers.

I would guess some number less than a 1000 for the total Super Enduro tally???
I (on occasion) have been known to while reading adv... so I may be a few degrees out of plum with this recollection..(accuracy disclaimer)

If any one knows the actual numbers, please do POST-IT!!

We asked KTM South Africa how many were sold and they could only tell us that a total of 164 were sold in South Africa, they did not know the worldwide figures.

Please tell me more! The H2W made a big improvement.... but if there is more to be had and filter alternative to the airbox as well, I'm game. The only alternative to more power is fcr pumpers but I don't think the added cost and difficult tuning of the pumper carbs are justified at this time.
Edit: I was thinking cpr rottweiler replacement filter when I posted, I didn't realize the dna was still a oem replacement drop in. But it was worth it? 3 oem filters and you pay for it.

My experience with DNA Filters

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=440368

(3 years, going on 4 with the original filter and it still works great....although I did get a 2nd just in case.)
