    Now that you mention this, besides the paint job I talked about (frame, swingarm, etc), I see even the turn lights also should have been changed...
    Ok, given your theory is easier, let's stick to it :wink:

    I noticed that most folks with the nerf bars tend to keep the lower tank guards (plastic shroud) in place. This seems redundant and the fins will interfere with the nerf bar bags I got from Geek. The only reason I could think to keep them is to protect the leading edge of the lower tank.

    Thoughts?

    Area is still subject to 'pokes' from protruding rocks, sticks,etc. Especially down low.

    Thanks, good points. Not that I intend to ride around those kind of hazards. I priced the parts. They are $15 for the covers. I think I'll butcher the stock covers to keep the front protection.

    Tearing down to put in HID lights, LED floods, and run a vacuum line for a chain oiler.

    Yeah, its a 2012 R....the last.
    All the parts I changed over from my 950.
    Since I already had the orange Safari and until I can get hold of a black Safari, I didnt want it looking like something from the parts bin...So orange it is for a while :D

    2 weeks and 2000k's and Im loving it, just have to get the suspension up to the 950's standard and thats happening next week :evil

    The A990 bags WILL scratch up the surface of your fuel tanks over time - if you don't run the guards then at least put some Mylar or something underneath to protect the tanks from abrasion.

    Doing a ride in one month that could involve some goopy spots. Would like to put on a high fender as a preventative measure. Front fender is a $300 part, making me very hesitant to carve it up.

    Dealer told me that most folks butcher the front fender to retain fork protectors and ABS mount.

    Here's the HOW: http://www.ktm950.info/how/Farkels/adventure/high fender/990/990_high_fender_kit.html

    I have the part number for a white fender around here someplace- I can dig it up if you need it.

    I drilled an extra hole in the new fork protectors, and carved the tab off the ABS sensor.

    Works a treat.

    Thanks FN! Very helpful.

    I'm sure I can figure it out, but if you have any close up pics of sensor mount that would be very helpful.

    So I gotta ride from NC to Colorado planned for this summer.
    Tonight, during our anniversary dinner, my wife says.... "So, what's it going to take to get your KTM ready for your Colorado ride?"

    God, I love this woman!
