And one more thing!

Cycle World lied in their Sept. '95 test of the KTM Duke when they said "..less than 3 minutes.." here.



I think you will spend at least that if not more just getting the 8 screws for side panels off the tank & radiator.
The real pain for me was getting the tank back on. I could never seem to get the tank spread enough to get it over the front mounts on the frame. Always a fight. This last go around I wised up. Easy fix. Took an exacto knife to the rubber inside the front tank mounts. Pops right on now.



BTW, I have that whole CW mag test scanned if anyone is interested.
It is the test that sucked me into this bike in the first place.

That is one of the nicest singles I have ever seen. Where did you get the carbon fiber for it?

The blue frame looks great!

I'm looking at a cheap 1996 duke in non running condition. 9k miles on the odo and appears to be in very good condition from the pictures. Should I go for it?

There is a cheap 1996 duke nearby in non-running condition. Appears to be in good condition from pictures. Should I go for it or run?

You still have anything left of that Duke II?
I sent you a pm, but I may be a little late. Let me know.

This was a very fun bike with a fantastic exhaust note!
I sold it to put a good suspension and bumper on my FJ last year. As the buyer rode away I knew I would regret it.
Love the FJ now that it's pimped a bit but wish I still had the Duke. Although it did jiggle the nibblies like no other bike I have ever been on. But it would carve up a twisty like nothing else too...
