The pics do it zero justice, it's so far from where it started life it's not even funny!

Not the least of which is the fact that it's now a 990...

Normally I think the SE looks like a bloated pig, but the white tank and silver rims do it well. I'm swapping to silver rims on my 690 to lighten up the look a bit myself.

So if the 950 is a 990 now does that mean it has FI and he's able to tune it to get better MPG? If only it could make 40 mpg...

He can prob tune it to get 40, but if mortals like us ever got to swing a leg over it 40 mpg might slip our minds.... For me I'd be hoping my life insurance is paid up right before I grabbed a handful in the open desert! I'm not selling my SE, and as much as I try the damn LC8 wont blow up, but the time will come and a 990+ will sit in the cradle. Sooooo jealous of Ken and Dan for owning one today!

I love this bike and Ken's has been my inspiration. Getting it just about perfect for me.

Just to extend the Powercell tank theme a bit longer...



I too am looking to the day when a 990 is hanging underneath. Until then, life is still good.

Congrats! You will not be disappointed. I thought about orange, too. I ultimately chose the white whale look because it allowed me to get rid of the fuel level sensor.

I opted for no sensor as well hopefully I won't end up regretting it. I'm just going to monitor mileage. We'll see how successful that is

Even if he were to sell it, you would have to move your oil tank to a different spot first. His oil tank is under the seat.

Custom skid plate.
Custom oil tank and lines.
Custom under seat tray.

I can keep going if you want, but no let me stop here.

Yes, the bike is "the shit"! It is a: "SUPER DUPER ENDURO 990RR"
Eye candy for sure.....

Yuppers, if one looks closely you can see the oil tank stuck up under the back fender. We better stop before he can't fit his head in his helmet anymore!
