    I just bought a new 990, so I'm in the same boat as you. Here is what I have planned.

    1. Sidestand relocation
    2. Adv-Spec skid plate
    3. Scotts Steering Damper http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RP-UfUrymY4
    4. 2-1 Remus Exhuast

    Those are my big 4, after that, I'll take the entire rack/luggage equation.

    Scott's steering damper. Makes the ride less "twitchy" IMHO

    Canyon Welding Skid Plate, a quality piece of protection and produced by a member on this forum
    Same thing with the side stand relocation kit from Canyon Welding

    Wolfman racks and top plate. Quality at a good price

    Ditto for their dry bags both saddle bags and medium duffle

    Quality GPS if you need it

    And then start reading the posts of fellow ADV'ers who have done some remarkable mods and Farkles to their bikes. I learn something new every time I get on this forum. Welcome to a great club where the price of entry is a key to your KTM. Your adventure starts here..

    Depends on what your looking for.

    GPR 2-1 Rally type exhaust.
    Adventure spec skid plate to match the routing of the exhaust and give better protection.
    Heated grips.
    A Rade carbon fibre screen or any other type. I have the KTM touring screen for sale in the sale section on here if yours isn't already fitted with one.
    For more fuel there's loads of options. I'll more then lightly go with the Rade under saddle tank myself.
    Navigation equipment I know nothing about yet as I haven't any myself but will be investing in the future.
    Saddles, any amount of after market ones I have a Renazco on my S and love it.
    I bought the other day the KTM dry bag for the rear rack. Haven't used it yet but looks good quality and is plenty big. More flexible then back box.

    Then there's relocation stand brackets.
    Camel toe stand feet.
    Scott oilers or similar.
    Break Master cylinder protection.

    Any amount of other stuff to bling it.
