I traded my Superduke for an FJR so the fiancee' could ride with me.
I sure loved the Superduke but I've already got an SV650 trackbike and I didn't want to sell the V Strom either.


Anyway, I kept a few parts so I thought I'd see if anyone in interested, link to Fleamarket ad.

Man, I'm gonna miss that monster motor.

Started doing my valve adjustment, but cant get the rear cylinder spark plug cover off. When I try to pull it out it wont clear the rear frame.
On my Super Enduro there is plenty of room.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Dan

IIRC mine cleared but remove the valve cover bolts and remove cover coil together. if you're installing the spark plug do it before replacing the valve cover.

Found the answer:

The SD and SDR have different coil caps, so it's easy on the SD, but on the SDR you have to remover the shock mount bolt!

Part 2 of the saga:

The same 16mm spark plug wrench that works on the Super Enduro does not fit the SDR.

Never mind. Strangely the SDR uses a 14mm plug and not a 16mm plug like the SE. Go figure.



Just to help others....

The 08 SDR has a different spark plug size/type to previous models

It's an NGK LKAR8AI-9 or KTM Part No. 75039093000

It needs a 14mm box spanner, not the 16mm on previous models

The electrode gap is 0.9mm indicated by the -9 on the NGK code

Nice, did you notice any difference between the stock windscreen and the 'touring' screen?

I never had the stock. I purchased mine with 5K on it and the touring screen was already there. I only notice wind issues at 80+ and it's not too bad. I'm coming off of a F800ST so the wind is noticeable but doesn't prevent me from having the largest grin inside my helmet.

Love my SD as well!!!

As I was picking it up...





And after removing all the stupid stickers.. not sure why I'm not smiling like an idiot



And here doing the TuneECU setup. Currently the bike is only flashed to a modified version of the Akrapovic map (set to 100% secondaries and to run the 2nd map at anything over idle). Fueling I may mess with later. It's certainly a lot nicer than a PC3 setup and a LOT cheaper!!! (I paid $60 for the cable as I'm lazy, software is free).

This is my KTM SD. This bike has been on a few 7 days tours. And this June we will be traveling to Alberta and British Columbia on a three week trip.

Planning on traveling light. Maybe meet a few ADV folks along the way?

Superduke.net

hello fellow inmates

does anyone have any idea what is happening at superduke.net?
site has been down for almost a week - I am having some serious withdrawal symptoms that even ADVrider cannot completely alleviate.

They probably had their hosting hacked. I lost my .com name to a hack last month. Some how they are getting in and changing the expiration date and scooping up site names, then turn around and offer to sell it back for a few grand. I told em to pound sand, got the same name but with a .net , bastiges!
