My friend took a trip to vermont on wed and stayed over so I rode up there today to meet him for lunch and we ride back to long island together. Lots of fun roads up that way...did about 400 miles today and bike is ready for first service ..but I think I will wait until monday to bring it in so I can ride it more this weekend..it may be a bit over the 600 miles by then...

KTM-Parts has the best LIST of 990SM-R accessories I can find, but not always the best prices.


Looks like KTM USA has switched to a new site, the list of accessories is much smaller now.
SMR Hard Parts from KTM USA

KTM Cycle Hutt has a nice selection too.

KTM Twins might have the biggest selection, and they have a good reputation.

Now we have at least 2 choices of bash plates, George,
if that backorder takes too long.

I might also point out that the stock 990SM-T luggage-rack/grabhandle bolts right onto the SM-R (picture on page 1, post 1).
Very handy, and doesn't look too bad.

Check out that Orange hose kit on KTM Twins.

Can anyone check to see if the SMT tankspoilers will actually bolt onto the SMR gastank for us ???
Can't tell with the part numbers.
The price difference is huge for replacement purposes.

I got everything ordered using multiple sources you provided..sw. motech makes both skid plates just the one has KTM logo..I ordered the other only because twisted throttle had one in stock.. since this is not my touring bike no hard luggage for me ...a dry bad and tank bag will get me through a weekend trip...

and then grrrrrrraaaaadually takes off.
I just couldn't live like that.

1200 Dorso does the SAME thing: Whack it and it eases into acceleration. SMR is way more tossable (tosser?) and rambunctious.

Sounds to me like you went out three times in rain mode!

Oh well, you would have been bummed when the 1200 came out a year or so later anyway.
At small throttle movement, the S mode was hyper responsive. But as some mentioned here, whack it and it was underwhelming. Rolling on it felt powerful. But it didn't seem to like to play rough. It was in S mode. KTM FTW.

Yeah, the SM-R injection works great. It does exactly what you tell it.

I really wanted the Dorsoduro to work as great as it looked, but it just didn't.

Different bike

Just put on the Akro,s and took a two hour run out to the project.If you don,t have a aftermarket pipe on your bike get one today!
Boosts the midrange and smooths out the trottle no end-I even recon it handles better with all that weight off the back end.
Very well done Slovenia!

Carbon body work

Any of you looking for body work for your 990smr's may want to check this out...

http://hfcarbon.de/index.php?main_pa...ort=20a&page=1

I've been well pleased with all the HF carbon parts I'm running on my 950smr. Excellent company to deal with as well. Shipping can be pretty spendy which is why I picked up nearly everything offered for my SMR at one time. When I was shopping to replace some damaged plastic last year, the carbon parts were often cheaper then the stock KTM parts. Worth considering if you damage something.

Here are some pics:

I just installed a set of FP levers last weekend. Great levers, one of the few choices for the SM/SMR/SMT.

See here:

Happy modding!

SMR vs Multi 1200S

Guys do you think its fair chance 990SMR vs Multi 1200? similar riding styles & skill of both riders...

If not what would it take ? (Exhaust,Moto,Hooligan ) ? or more ?


Buddy just got one "Multi"... I already know where this is going... (Most Riding is in tight stuff...)
