    We get lots of questions about which is better - the ktm or the bmw.
    Expect OC to resoundingly say the ktm. Doh!

    Therefore a bit of almost humour about the eternal GS v 950 debate from a fellow who had owned both for a little while. Looking then buying his bike, now he's got a few miles on the 950 finally oops, guess what happened!

    On a more serious note, people ask what are the first modifications to a 950.
    Obviously the choices are quite personal but the common answers seem to be:
    • exhausts - lose weight, heat and gain sound!
    • jet said bike to suit pipes and altitude.
    • if USA spec canisterectomy is a must do...
    • tune suspension to suit rider style and weight
    • perhaps crash bars and pannier mounts to help your toy survive the inevitable
    • centre stand if you don't have one.
    • fit ultra heavy duty tubes as field tube repairs are one PITA :huh
    • going to an aftermarket seat seems popular but you will get used to the stock one...

    How to change the front sprocket

    fixing that rear flat:

    beforehand grinding the bead is one solution to make it easier to bead break
    using the side stand to break the bead

    I note I've ridden 30 miles with a flat 908rr rear fully laden up to about 40mph - didn't break the bead tho...

    I struggled for a long time trying to source a facet in the UK. I finally found one and they stock the 40171 plus all the brass fixings and filters.

    Click here

    Hope you find it useful.
