    I'm looking at them myself for some years, but they are too expensive for me.

    Yes, expensive, but reading a couple of stories where guys broke their OEM connectors out in the back of beyond. I'd had one rock hit and ding the knob on one side. Decided that would be the warning.

    So with those Powercell fuel connectors...does an additional pair need to be bought in order to drain the fuel tanks? Because they don’t let any fuel go through them when they are uncoupled, right?

    There is a connector with a piece of line available for purchase. The short answer, yes.

    I didn’t see it on his website. I was kinda hopping for a “buy 3, get half of one free” sort of thing.

    Super clean! Also I noticed that your footpeg and sidestand are missing, and what is the little loop bolted to your passenger footpeg mount? :ear

    The loop is probably to hold the side stand in place.

    Wonder if it would work for the center stand? Mine bounces in the rough stuff.

    Yes, it will work for the centerstand or sidestand, but not both at the same time.

    Yesterday I let the 990 sleep (5 times, it was a tough track)

    Today I'm changing the airbox to foamfilter and ditching the SAS.

    If you look closer, you can see a large tab that’s welded next to the footpeg bracket. That’s for the EXC kickstand conversion that I’m in the process doing. I removed both the sidstand and footpeg so that I could weld in the bracket. My ultimate goal is to use both the OEM center and sidestand for everyday use. For racing I’ll remove both of them, then install a Pro Moto Billet kickstand. The stock side stand hangs down too low for me and it gets smashed on rocks. I’ve also lost the return spring twice so far.

    finally pulled my finger out my ass got a start with the 450RFR tower / lights & fairings (to be trimmed to mate to the PCP tank) all to go on my 07 950SER

    Very top tower will be warning lights -
    Neutral
    Low oil pressure light/buzzer
    High Beam Light
    Main power toggle switch (can remove main power fuse if need be for better security)

    Each side the Rally Max G be 2 x toggles to isolate individual power via PDM60
    Lights - PDM60 only
    Trailtech Voyager via PDM60 & toggle
    Trailtech Voyager pro via PDM60 & toggle
    Garmin Zumo 660 via PDM60 & toggle
    F2R / ICO Power Modual via PDM60 & toggle

    Nav Tower will be setup for following swappable options

    That's going to look good! Is it a lot cheaper than a Aurora-kit for the 9X0?

    don't think Aurora do a kit for the 950 Super Enduro ? unless buy a 2019/20 450RFR kit (new style fairing screen) do as i'm doing
    It would save trimming white plastic side fairings as i have to do with the 2017-18 450RFR & how i'm going to mount the side fairings ;)

    I'm using Jon's KIT690 450RFR tower kit as i have one already have a KIT690RFR & know the build quality of his.
