Just picked up my 2012 SMT 990 Saturday. I couldn't be happier.

Top box mounted!
First modification already completed. I added my 65L top case.

Riding away from the Dealership
I'll be looking to add crash bars (just in case) and a some extra lighting soon.

That's a huge top case. Take care on that sub frame mount

Welcome Random, nice bike...

Rear sub-frames were beefed up in 2011- so should be all good :)

Oh, I plan on keeping a good eye on the subframe. They may have "improved" in 2011, but it won't hurt to keep an eye on it. The case itself is actually only about 7.5#, it's Aluminum, and I don't put much in it when riding. It's for stowing gear/helmets when parked mainly.

Now I've got to find a tank bag that will fit the usual slope of the SMT tank.

You could get the Ktm tank bag, there is maybe a rebranded one. It fits very nice on this "weird" tank
