My first post here on this thread, one of many, as I've just joined the SE crowd.
I've owned an Adv R for almost two years, and known since early days I'd "bought the wrong bike"
Just purchased a SE, finally, and have a few questions....

First, my old Adventure....

What Adventure parts fit the 950?
Difference in maintenance?
Any must do additional things apply? Bear in mind I had an extremely tricked out AdvR....

Highlights, weird phrasing as I've nicked this from it's advert....

[*]High front fender
[*]Custom fork protectors
[*]No passenger footpegs
[*]GPS mount (the proper one that continues below the dash for strength)
[*]Power outlet within the dash
[*]Suspension from a super-tall 2008 S front and back (this strangely makes the bike taller than any of any year that I have seen, including the 2010 AdvR)
[*]Axle puller
[*]Rust-free wheels/spokes (with part worn Conti TrailAttacks)
[*]Heated grips with very trick switch (part of OEM controls)
[*]Anodised rear top-plate rack
[*]1st and 2nd gear unlimiting mod
[*]SAS removed and blanking plates
[*]Oxygen sensors removed, terminating plugs and blanking bolts fitted
[*]Recent oil, valves, air filters - major service (done by me, as I'd not let a dealer around London touch the bike)
[*]Bearings serviced, head bearings were ok, replaced front wheel bearings and swingarm bearings about 1,000 miles ago
[*]Dubious stickers... ;)
[*]Cut down screen
[*]3mm holes drilled in swingarm (great mod to release water)
[*]New (400 miles) chain (expensive gold link one) and new F&R sprockets, both OEM size
[*]2008 S centre stand, to accommodate additional height from suspension
[*]Obviously all the OEM parts are included in a box
[*]Akrapovic single exhaust with 2 into 1 link pipe
[*]Massively LOUD Seibel air-horn fitted into side cowling
[*]0.64 stiffer springs in forks
[*]GiT bashplate
[*]Black stainless steel radiator guard, great quality not the utter crap KTM one
[*]Chunky & bigger orange alloy footpegs
[*]Camel-toe side stand thingy
[*]Handmade left side tool tube
[*]Brand new lowered geared F&R sprockets
[*]Upgraded side-stand return springs
[*]CJ Racer see-thru Titanium clutch cover
[*]Oberon clutch slave and alloy spacer
[*]HDB handguards
[*]KTM 20mm handle bar risers
[*]Blackdog side stand relocate
[*]Steering dampener (Rallemoto)
[*]2nd right hand radiator fan and lower temp plug
[*]Centech Fuse box properly wired in, and mounted in cowl
Current Bikes: 2006 Honda XR650R & 2015 KTM 1190 Adventure R (build thread at )
