No issues in 3 years and thousands upon thousands of Baja off-road miles since.
Thought I'd let interested folks know...

Also, what is the soft luggage and why did you eskew that instead of the hard stuff?
What other useful mods have you done and why?
TIA

@ RichardC

It's Neduro's adventure tank where the exhaust was.
It takes about 8L and works great, thanks Ned!
You can find it on the vendors section of the forum.

The luggage is a Giant Loop Great Basin.
Did not even know it was there, fantastic.
I have to thank my mate Mooky for letting me use it.
I wanted to travel light and I don't like hard luggage,
that's why I have an unused set in my garage.
Other mods...
265mm suspension, new springs and revalve
High fender
RC High Fatbar
Cycra handguards
Dirtinblood risers
TT skidplate
Fastway footpegs
G2 Throttle cam
Renazco seat
I think there must be more.
Check out the Hall of wisdom for all the info you need.

Picking up a 10 month old 950 Super Enduro with 1500miles on Monday.
Loved the 990 ADV but it's time for a change.
