Suspension swapping

Does anyone know if you can swap the front suspension between a 2010 990 adventure and a 2008 990 adventure s? What is involved and any issues with ABS, brake lines, stands etc. Thanks in advance for any info.

The 07-up 'S' or 'R' models and the 07-up 'Std' models will swap easy. The brake hoses are just 'a little' tight on the Std after the swap, but it works.

ABS on the taller suspension makes it more sensitive, esp on the rear. You get a little more weight transfer and it picks up the rear on heavy braking. KTM says no.

The 950 swap to an 07-up is not as easy. It has no mounts for the ABS or speedo sensors on the forks. You have to keep the original outer parts and swap out the internal parts.

Remember the center and side stands.
