44t sprocket mount was a bit tight to get over the sprocket. IIRC I may had the left adjuster inserted. Probably would have worked had I had the axle in only, or the axle pulled enough for the adjuster to not have been seated (you will want a 3rd hand then, or s support for the wheel).

Still stock on the ecu map (ug), so still chugging when much below 4k rpm. Still, an improvement.
Mods: arrow exhaust, 2nd flies removed, plugged air injection caps, JC30-80 air filter, 44T sprocket, 80w high beam, short levers, weighted bar ends, Rox risers, remapped ecu, heated grips, horn, radiator screen, crash bar, skid plate, backrest.

is this the same Talon you ordered-

White Brothers Silver Anodized Rear Groovelite Sprocket for Honda CRF250R CRF250X CRF450R CRF450X (2002-2007), CR125 CR250 CR500 (1983-2007), XR250 XR400 XR650R (1996-2007), Vertemati M/X S 501 (2000 and up), Vertemati M/X SR 570 (2000 and up). Brand new, never used and still sealed in the original packaging. 43 tooth. These lightweight sprockets are made by Talon from 7075-T6 billet aluminum and are one third the weight of steel sprockets. Groovelite design helps clean mud from sprocket and chain. Anodized finish is extremely durable. Retails for $54.95

Mmmmmm. Doesn't seem to look the same. To be honest, I simply emailed a company in the UK that I have dealt with before ( http://www.jimaimracing.co.uk ) after noting that the sprocket isn't listed as a standard item on their website - told them what I wanted and they sent it. When it arrived, it was shrink wrapped but in a KTM sprocket box! Guess it didn't come in it's own box!

Sorry I can't be more helpful ... bike is parked up at work and I can't get a photo of the sprocket right now.

Put a new tire on, figured out the chain-over-sprocket: put the chain on before sliding the axle in.
More of a dance, but no issue. Process....

Dudes, Ive bought a Motohooligan And a CPR Rottweiler airfilter and prefer the CPR by a margin. Yes theyr different and the MH is more robust, but the noise from the CPR cant be beat. Thanks to Kev for also recomending the throttle tube mod (I actually bought a pre-made throttle tamer) which has made the throttle actually enjoyable now. Cheers Kev.

I've been looking around, trying to find some real info on this but no luck so far:

Does anyone know how much does the 990 SMT seat lower the SMR? The thing is, I'm a relatively short guy and cant reach the ground properly (toes only) with the stock seat. Otherwise I loved the 990 SMR when I test rode it for ~100 miles. Lowering/replacing the seat would be the only proper way to get my feet on the ground since I don't care about the chassis lowering kits etc cause they tend to alter the handling.

Would really appreciate some real info about this. And pardon my english (from Finland) ;)

Cheers!

Protector,

I spoke to a KTM engineer at the US office before purchasing & went with the chassis lowering kit. It did not affect handling as it comes with 25mm shorter springs for the front & rear lowering them together. Also as the bike has so much travel dropping it that amount doesn't alter the geometry of the bike negatively. I'm not familiar with the SMR seat changes.

Hmm, guess I could look more into that then :) Thanks for your reply! Just gotta figure first if the seat would be enough, since it doesn't need to lower much.

One of the first mods I did to my SMR a SMT seat, if I remember right it lowers the seat height by 25mm.

I think 25mm would be enough, thanks. U remember is the SMT seat much wider than the stock one? If this checks out I migt be replacing my 2013 Z1000 next spring :shock:
