We don't see the Baja 990 here in NZ. How does it differ from regular 990?
Is KTM still making the 990? or just the 1190 now?

If so, they get dirty and the ball bearing detent inside rusts and then jams. This causes the polymer body, which ages with time and temperature to break. Some WD-40 goes a long way in keeping them trouble free. When (not if) this occurs, replacements are available here.

Look under Southco - Hinges - External Hinges - Positioning Hinges and then C6/G6 Detent Hinges. Decent prices and quick service.

Aux driving lights, rear rack, Dunlop 908RR rubber, Supersprox rear sprocket, crash bars, rad guard, tank bag, rear bag, GPS support bracket sexy white and fancy decals. Also they are unquestionably the most powerful with many more horsepowers than any other KTM ever made.

In Canada, unless you find a leftover bike there are only 1190's available now.

Hey Wheeler, I don't know if you've looked into it, but a dealer I've been working with here (not even where I bought the bike, they didn't have one at the time) is working on getting me a Supersprox chainring to replace my plain steel rear. It should have come with Super, so he says warranty item.

Not really a big deal really, but thought you'd like to know

I'm told KTM are done with the 990. The 1190 is the way forward.
The Baja is special for the US I guess. Orange crashbars, fancy sprocket, a dry-ish bag, tankbag, GPS mount and aux lights. Seude-look seat, and BNG, (bold new graphics).
I was set to buy one when my dealer pointed me to a lightly used R.
I guess the margin on new ain't so great.
I think the Baja is definitely lower suspension than my 2010 R. At least from what I recall last time I swung a leg over one. I liked the white and orange. Wife and daughters didn't like the all orange or blue. But, are happy with the black R, though it doesn't matter to me. The KTM USA site states 210mm front and rear for travel for the US model 2014 Baja edition. The HOW for the 950/990 states the 2010 R has 265mm of travel.

That's BS because I bought mine barely used with 530 miles on it and while it came with all the other goodies, it did not come with the sprocket....there's a thread around here voicing that issue with the majority stating they did not receive.

Not sure if there is any recourse for me with change of owners and time elapsed.

This is interesting, my bike was also delivered with a standard steel sprocket. It won't hurt to give the dealer a call and see if they can hook up the super-sprocket.

Mine didn't have the SuperSrox. I went in and politely asked ...... they said "Oh, OK. We'll order that up."

Two weeks later they called me and even offered to put it on.

You get more flies with honey than you do with vinegar ...... just sayin'.
