Thanks fellas,,workin on it already.
They are and they arent....
I havent seen DG's bike up close, but Im pretty sure theyre the EXC guards with the metal adapter at the bottom (as per KTM/Touratech kit).
The fork guards are longer - that much is good.
But the RHS fork guard doesnt match the bracket - and as such has to be bent out of shape to fit.
The metal brackets have captive nuts - and in my case, it took next to no sideways pressure to pop them out (the bent fork guard provided the force). They are press-fit, so once they come out, they will never stay in again.
The thing that bugged me, however, is that the metalwork at the bottom makes removing/replacing the front wheel more difficult. The brackets interfere with the brake discs when you twist the forks to let the tyre past the callipers...
played MotoHooky yesterday at the Pawnee National Grasslands.
No my high fender parts have not come in yet
The "other side" of Colorado.
You've got a great playground on your doorstep Geek
No doubt I am very lucky.
I went through a lot to be able to live in Colorado (11 years in immigration, etc) and I don't regret it one bit.
I can't wait until the "other side" of Colorado melts out and I can play with the 950 up high.
This really is adventure motorcycle heaven (as my smugmug can attest to )
p.s. when I (eventually) scratch my 950 all to hell there is a very good chance it is going to end up painted just like yours
Yours is one of my favorite looking 950s of all time
Almost like the Spanishes

the stable line up..
mine, mums and the boys...
Bought this yesterday
Nice set up.
Hmm, sounds like a ploy to upgrade to a 990R to me.
Just kidding, hope you are back in an orange saddle really soon.
Don't tell my wife that.
I'll probably stick with the regular 990,,I'm too short for the R.
I'm hopeing to be shopping in the fall,,,,should be a good time to get the best price on a bike too.
I'm also wondering when the big girls will see an update,,,they're due.
Just picked our new 2010 KTM Adventure 990 R on Saturday!!! What a great machine... And the smell of a new bike
Yes, I did forget to bring my riding boots...

If I'm not mistaken it looks like Flanny's exhaust.
In fact, it is I recognize the modified Black Dog skidplate.
Nice fitment though.
The fully loaded bike looks less busy in front of this small town Texas post office/general store/liquor store!
It had to rest on the long rocky climb.
The 990 is in there if you look close.
In front of calcite veins in clay.
