Did you get the 6319H model? I really like the looks and I think might work better.

P.S Maybe this should be moved to the screens thread
Yes it is a 6319
Yes maybe it should
Sorry for thread high jack :roll:

No worries, unfortunately nothing to do with Kev's SMT modification list.

My theory behind it all is the rear cylinder fires with the STD stack producing good Torque then a few degrees later the front cylinder fires using the RC8 stack which is better for HP. Motorcycle motors have been using different length intakes for many years now but I have not found any info on our 990s using different length intakes so I decided to explore this avenue, anyway just sharing what I am up to at the moment.

I have tried quite a few combinations.
Lowered RC8 on STD stacks both cylinders = Lots of Torque

Lowered RC8 on STD + STD stack= Good torque

Lowered RC8 + standard stack = Good top end HP

RC8 + STD stack= best combination I think, nice & smoother low down & revs a bit better up top compared to running 2 standard stacks.
So what's the consensus on this approach? I have a JC30-80 on its way and plan to visit a tuner for a custom map. Should I go ahead order an RC8 stack for the front cylinder?

Normally I would Dyno test a mod like the 2 different stack combination before releasing the info but with the results I got I could feel the difference straight away & wanted other riders opions as anyone could carry out the stack combination mod, I will only be back on the dyno in a month or two & could not keep this info to myself, so I am very interested to see what other riders have to say about running a standard stack on the rear cylinder & a RC8 stack on the front cylinder?

Kev,

I turned EPC on & noticed much less chain slap. Least mount there's ever been. I do have a 43t rear on order & will put the 17t front back on at that time to see differnce.

Thx,

Definitely best mod for the money I have done :lol:
Kevs a genius and should be in the ktm r&d department in my opinion
Even after my custom map this still made a big difference I wouldn't hesitate for 1 second if you have the tank off do it!

Kev,

How do I remove the existing rear sprocket & add a 43T. I have the rear tire off, but can't figure out how to remove the existing sprocket. :oops:

Thank you,

ALL SO CHECK OUT DAVES CONVERSION20.4.14 viewtopic.php?f=10&t=6602&p=35082#p35082


My SMT got 690 Duked over the weekend with a 2012 new head light, custom decals to arrive this week from the UK. The only modification need to the head light was to cut a hole into the back of the mask to allow the ignition switch to poke through, then make up 4 x brackets to mount the head light. I also used a 2009 gloss black 990SM front mud guard.

Thanks again to the guys at Eurotek http://www.eurotekktm.com/ where I get most of my KTM parts from with super fast delivery times.

Christian edit edit very helpful man, I sent him the design of what I wanted, he sent me a mock up decal photo, order placed & shipped in a few days, great service.

Hmm I went to him first for mine as he did a great job on my 690 but he didn't have templates for the SMT. What decals are you getting as I know he can't do the ktm logo anymore

Looks much better with the head light decals, now I can finish off the rest of the bike with some custom decals & get rid of those Dynojet ones.

kevxtx wrote:Not sure mate we will have to see, I will be very surprised if the production version has 180hp, I just can't see an extra 25hp over the RC8 from an extra 100cc, from past experience an extra 100cc will give you around 8-10 extra rear wheel HP.

That proto type ran with no air box so it would receive max air flow with big intake noise, with Euro 4 & 5 emission controls it would not allow the intake noise level of the bike, so an air box would be needed & with every bend the air takes trying to reduce the intake noise it will slow the intake air speed down & the HP will go down.
where can I order the DNA 3 airbox from, how many HP will it add compared to removing the SAS?

The SAS plates will not produce any HP or Torque gains, the SAS system is there to inject air in to the exhaust after the exhaust valve.

That price is not quite as scary as it looks - I think it includes a 23% VAT.
Check for a distributor near you. I found buying off a local agent to be a bit cheaper, maybe DNA trying to help distributors?
I bought mine off these guys earlier this year at a good saving.

Sorry for my ignorance, why the need to inject air into the exhaust? and any direct implications for removing the SAS ?

Air is injected after the exhaust valve for Emission control to burn off any hydro carbons.
