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.

It has an uni 950 filter and Leo Vince exaust system. Thanks in advance for any help.
Hey Viper, there's a few of us around Colorado.... KTM950 high altitude jetting

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....
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.)

Super Enduro Steering

Any way to improve steering lock to lock angles on the SE? Offset triple clamps etc? The 690 and SE both have pretty dismal steering in tight places. I know some guys just solve it by spooling up the rear but in some cases that is not a great solution. I've gotten as much movement as I can out of the stock setup without making contact with the frame but I'd like a bit more.

I'd like to know too. I used a thin strip of cardboard as a feeler gauge between the frame and forks to get as much out of mine as I could but it could stand a lot more.

The best way to tighten the turning radius on an Adv or SE is to learn well the technique where you lock-up and slide the rear end into the turn about 90 degrees and then get on the gas and power slide the rear end the rest of the way around.

Takes practice, but I can usually get my SE around in about a 6' trail.

Here in Norway it is only 10, and I have one of them

Tubliss on an SE

Hello, anyone on here used Tubliss on the mighty 950SE? preferably in muddy, sandy type conditions. Any other thoughts?

Cheers Wilso!

I am running a front Tubliss sytem on my SE and love it. No sand yet, but I rode my last Adv. with a Tubliss front in LOTS of sand and had great luck. FYI, going to the Tubliss on my SE took 4 lbs off the front wheel.

Thanks for the reply, from what I have read its ok on the front but the rear rim is too wide?? Did you drill a new hole as from memory the stock rim lock hole is further away than 4 spokes... not sure that really makes a difference...

I did drill and run a new hole. Honestly I have done it both ways. I think for ease of tire mounting they say no more than 4 spokes away. Whatever.

I have also heard they are going to build a rear set-up for the 2 1/2" SE rim but I have yet to see it.
