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.

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!!
