Hi 'gab1' !
And very much welcome to the forum :-)

I have the same colors on my 2010, with 57000 km. I'll put up a pic of it. Here it is:
KTM 990 SMt -10.jpg
Only thing that differs is the Alpinestar decal on the rear plastic close to seat ;-)
And of course the wind screen. Mine is a PUIG oturing, 17 cm higher than stock. Works quite good, although I'm 187 cm hight. It's doesn't take the wind out completetly but compared to the stock screen it is way much better.
I did almost every mods you mention but used Dominator's silencers which is just TOO loud! So I took them off and put almost everything back to original again. I'm happy enough with the engine anyway. It's for sure more effect than necessary. For me that is.

What year is yours?
May I ask, how much did it cost you in Canada?

(Unfortunatelly I crasched on May 20:th and the bike is... 'a bit scratched'... so to say.
I'm still in a wheel chair due to the body damages... The main problems is the ligament in the right foot joint.
I can normally walk with crutches for about 700 meters, but since Saturday the pain in my right shoulder came back and I can't walk at all... :/ I also have had the Walker orthos on the leg during nights and when outside, not to let something bad happen to the foot.)

I did mine when I first got it. I don't know why KTM don't make them black. They look so much better. The powder coating only cost me $20. Only do them with straight thrus. The OEM cans get too hot and the treatment will reverse itself !
