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....


Questions:
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

Not sure if it is a 950 thing, but I should have said the 990 EFI EPC where they limit power in first and second gear. You can bypass it by cutting a certain wire.

Explosions from exhaust

I rode my Superenduro after standing still for 11 months today. There is one thing really different from a year ago; a lot of explosions out of the exhaust during when closing the throttle.

Anybody any idea how this is possible?
And what I can do to make it normal again? Thanks!!

Bad fuel?
11 months is long enough for it to go off, and start to varnish the carb.
So run a bottle of redex through it (or another brand of carb/engine fuel cleaner)

Very nice! I have been trying to buy a SE but am having problems. I don't think I have ever worked so hard to spend money . If I can't get one this would be my next choice.

Welcome aboard at last, now you wont keep asking to take mine out :) mate your old bike was well tricked but in reality you know you were just trying to make it an SE

The only mods you need is a side stand re-locator, decent tyres, set up the suspension and then ride it like you stole it... The rest is personal choice, obviously epc and SAS, I have yet to do mine and its plenty enough as is, so, not essential.

What Adventure parts fit the 950?
From what I have found LC8 engine is pretty much the same but different gears and stroke, oberon clutch slave is the same and your bling bit will fit :) It has 2 fans already so you don't need an aux fan kit etc. Personally I would just treat it as a completely different bike and start again. Strip your old bike to standard and sell the bits.

When are you bringing her round then?

Mine has always done that, even after spending $800 to get the carbs inspected, valves adjusted and engine checked by a professional racer.

But how did correct it? What did you do to let it run smoothly again?

Yes everything is off. It could be 11 month old Moroccan fuel in the carbs but I filled it up with fresh fuel and it exploded still after 4 kilometers when I returned back home.

11 mo is a long time... might need to pull the carbs. But I would also check the vent that drops under the airbox and sits between the cylinders. Mine was pushed up against another hose at one point and the bike ran like shit.
