Another 990 for me!

Post by jhalfhide » Mon Aug 29, 2016 1:30 am

Hi all, just put down a deposit on a 2013 990 SMT. Not my first 990, had an SMR a few years back until it was stolen and have had a few bikes since. Most recent monstrosity was a Ducati Multistrada that snapped a crank shaft in half a my on 21k miles. Glad to be shot of that and looking forward to another lunatic KTM.

Will be throwing Kev's mod list at it. First step will be some for of exhaust (JC, Mivv or GPR; any suggestions???) and disabling/removing the SAS with a TuneECU map upload.

COngrats!!!! I love my GPR cans, I can only compare them to acra's and love the sound more. Only issue I have is that outlet is pointed straight, inline with can, instead curving to more horizontal direction.. So if you have soft tail bag you might start melting it :)

Top box all the way so no issue there. I have a Kriega but only use it on the passenger seat.

My previous Kriega suffered from the under seat exhaust from a ZX6R. Got flagged down as my straps had melted and my Kriega tail pack was holding on only by a clip caught on the seat. [GRIMACING FACE]
