Luckily we mostly ride in the sand so the tires are lasting a lot longer than other people have reported.

A side benefit is less suseptability to damage when cart wheeled (as I discovered the other night... ). Very slight increase in exhaust note. I see this as a positive since I have so much trouble guaging the RPM.



Wow PowerCell, I have to make the argument that your SE is the sweetest SE set-up I've seen on here! The Rally Kit is cool but seems a little more Adventurous not so Enduro (SE). It will have to take a 2nd place finish (IMO) next to Powercell’s!

Oh, how I want one!

Well, 8 weeks and a couple of bucks later, my 950R Super Enduro is finally done! Thanks to all the ADV riders who helped me with this project! Cheers!

Nice one big daddy...



Congratulations on one PRIMO job on the 950 SE "Pre-Run/Baja Racer" bike...!!!

If I was gonna blast down in Baja... that's DEFINATELY the set up I would go with!

My set-up on the 950 SE Rallye was intended to keep it along the lines of the original design Adventure cockpit and meld it with the lines of the SE... keeping as true to the org. KTM desigers breif as possible and allowing me somewhere to stow the roadbook holder and tripmeter in the process...




When I need the GPS, it sits on a cross brace mount on the bars...

I like the cockpit set up you have... wassit all for?



The GARMIN GPS i can figure out... and the org. KTM trip is below it with a nifty digital clock alongside to the right. The "Vapor" computer is what I assume to be a US style enduro time check/computer... is it not?

The orange "clock" with KTM Hardparts to the left... engine hour meter?

WHAT TYPE OF STEERING DAMPER are you running and do you an estimate of how much the lights and navigation gear set up you have weighs...? Much of my motivation in doing the Adv. fairing/cockpit thing was to keep the weight of the steering head/bars and resting on the frame... a' la' classic rallye bikes like the KTM 660 & 950's. Does the baja light system and GPS stuff dangling off the bars affect the steering much?

It is so that I am building my bike to do the Aust Safari rally in 2007 and that will require an additional ICO, raising of the RB holder a little higher and a larger fuel cell and or side tanks.

Last question... are you running the bike in Baja 1000 this year...?

If so... would you be interested in an ex-australian - lived and raced in Caifornia for five years - now rides a 950 SE - swede rider" on the team...?

The Vapor computer is by trailtech.net - RPM bar graph and digital readout, water temp, air temp, speedo, trips, hours, clock, ride time, .....well you get the picture.......very cool, compact and under $100!!!

The KTM meter is RPM and total hours run.

The damper is an RTTmotorsports.com and is built into the top triple withe a handelbar remote control....works great!

Not sure about the exact weight, but after yanking off all the stock parts, I am lighter than before. Handeling is superb after adjusting all the settings (except she's still a little choppy in front) and a re-valve at SuperPlusSuspension.com will cure that.

Will be riding from Ensenada to Loreto just for pre-running and fun this year and then back in Ensenada for the start.

Cheers!

Hey DBD!

Firstly, good job on your bike. I personally dont like aesthetics of the big ass lights, but I understand how necessary they are and all that.

I have to complement you on your workmanship - top stuff. I looked into the Vapor computer and wow, its truly a computer of note. Does yours do all of the following listed below? If so, which exact model did you get? The generic upside down forks model? (75-700). Why didnt you use the Vapor to do the rpm, as opposed to the KTM model? Thanks for your answers mate, top stuff indeed. - love his Vapor thing!

My 950SE at the Big Woods 200. The grass track was slimy at best.

Since I no longer have an ignition lock or key, I got tired of carrying a key for the gas cap...

Ok, I need one of them. Where did you get that?

Got the 950SE up in the snow today.






The 908RRs are... well they're sorta hard tires. When it came to wet/muddy rock and whatnot the compound is just not a happy one. No fault of the tires of course, but it was interesting at times to have just engine braking locking up the rear wheel on the steeper downhill sections. I slipped and slid up and down the hills and through several inches of snow in a few places, managed not to fall down but did rely on the luck o' the Irish in a few places.

Salute



And what ride on an SE would be complete without a good amount of time checking the sky conditions?




Then come the obligatory run-by puddle assaults. My friend Jess did a bang-up job on the photos here.







Took this one yesterday, this is my favorite place for taking pics of the bikes.
