    so i just received a KTM 990SMT tank , I was planning on doing a tank swap and getting a 990 SMT seat fitted..

    total cost + labor moving forward.. $500

    I am torn, but concerned that if i do this then it will depreciate the value of the bike when i sell it?

    even though it looks amazing

    That tank/seat combo would go a long way to giving you back some roadtrip manners! Don't even mention how great the lines look...:clap
    To be honest, if ya added a 19" front, after putting the SMT tank and seats on, you'd have the balance between rolling down a gravel track with confidence and laying down some rubber in the twisties!

    I have to look closer at the 990SMR seat/tank adaption. Didn't think of the option! O'course, it would be less dirty girl with those features, not sure she'd get to keep that pretty city skirt on, with the way we ride.
