SuperDuke swingarm fit 950 adv?

Hi guys,

As per title, does the 950 / 990 superduke swingarm fit the 950 adventure?
I have a 2003 adventure and the swingarm is getting little hairline cracks in it and i need to replace, not finding many adventure swingarms on ebay, more the superduke swingarms.

Thanks

Where did you find this info? Do you have a link to specs or can you verify lengths that confirms this?

The ADV and SD swingarms I have here look to be the same length. They are both on the bike though.

Very curious too as I see this info posted often but no proof.

The SD does run a shorter chain, but that's b/c the gearing is higher and it needs a shorter chain. Is this why people think it has a shorter swingarm?

ADV = 17/42 = 118 link chain
SD = 17/39 = 116 link chain

If this gearing is installed on an ADV, you'd need the same chain length as the SD.

Thanks cjracer,

I have googled for hours to try and find the measurements of both but cant find it anywhere. The chain length does seem to indicate they are the same.
Any chance you you could try get a few rough measurements when you have a spare moment? I would be most appreciative.

Well back to google to research if the superduke owners need a 118 chain using the 17/42 gearing.

Thanks for the tip cjracer

what about sd to sm

Hi guys,

I have a similar question.
Does anyone know if the superduke swingarm will fit the 990 sm ?
They look really similar, but the serial numbers seem slightly different on ktmpartfinder.com. this could be the different colours though..
I want to exchange to make my wife her 990 sm all black..

Cheers

Swingarm length

My 09 Adv has a swingarm length of 26 5/8" and my 08 Superdukes' swingarm is 25 1/4". This is measured from the center of the swingarm pivot to the end of the swingarm casting.

Hi, Craig,
How do I know the length? I Have one of each!
You have my cousins Superduke. It is the same length as your adv? My 2012 990r is longer by approx 2". Is it possible a non "r" version is shorter?
Otherwise the mounts and shock mount look identical. The ADV tire has a larger dia.and believe your tire will hit the subframe before bottoming out

Here is how I measured my swingarms. From the center of swingarm pivot to the furthest edge.[IMG][/IMG]
The 08 Superduke measures 24.5 inches
[IMG][/IMG
The 2012 ADV 990R 26.5 inches (she's a little dirty)

i checked with my dealer.
superduke and supermoto are exchangeable.
near similar part numbers, the superduke has an added 33 at the end, which is for the black colour.
the 2003 adventure swingarm has a different part number, so i guess it does not fit.

950 adv swingarm : 60004030044
990 sm/sd '05 : 61004030044
990 smr/sdr '07 : 6100403004433

Awesome
thanks for the pics and info. This is very helpful for future inquires.
The SD is still a work in progress, need to time to get back on it. Hope to have it on the road soon. Great to see you enjoying the ADV. Are the trails drying out up there yet?

Comparing KTM part #s on these is hard, b/c the street swing arms have different bolt holes drilled and tapped for fenders and what not from the ADV version. Although they look be made out of the same casting.

I think all the ADV "S" or "R" and Standard are all the same length.

The 03", 04" ADV swingarms are prone to cracking. The newer versions are trussed better around the shock.

Might try and get me SD moved this weekend. I'll check this again and see what I get for measurements.

Another reason why the ADV with 17''s installed might feel so stable over the 950 SM.

Great info for those trying to piece bike together!
