It is amazing how we all get off track so easily. Strippers by the 12th reply? That doesn't surprise me when Loaded Again is on the board.

Getting back on track - the pipe install looks good. Did you make the carbon fiber air box cover or purchase it somewhere? Have you changed your jetting to compensate?

Sorry, I got so far off track that I forgot you had listed the info. Thanks! Ever thought of marketing those carbon covers?

Nope, for what it costs me to make one, you can buy a factory one and have $5 left over. I tried to sell it for $35 on KTMtalk and got no takers.
A C/F part you can't see or show off... nobody wants.

Just wanted to post my install. Thanks for your advice creeper... Mine seems to have differed slightly in the bolt up section... See photos below - oh yeah, it is different as well in that my bike is not as clean as the creep's!

You will notice in this photos that for proper alignment my hanger is on the outside of the mounting tab as opposed to creep's. Creep suggested that I drill the tab as he did, but he also suggested to just hook up the springs and let the pipe dictate the install... I did that and it worked well, but differently...



Back side



Rear alignment shot



Full shot



Still working on tuning it, more later if it differs significantly from Creep's... We do differ in that my bike has a differnt airbox set up and I am running ther FCR41 carb.

Still want to trade the FCR41 for my black plastic? I don't know... I really like my black plastic

Is it me, or do you need a new back tire?

The install looks good, as long as nothing is in a bind and the male/female spigot mount is pretty square, it should be fine. I imagine the difference in mounting is the "pre-muffler" on your bike.

As for tuning, slap in the number of discs that sound good to you, (not too loud now) and then jet for it.
You did put that little "safety rivet" in didn't you

And if you ever need replacement springs... Moose is one of the few companys that make 60mm springs... @ about 7 bucks a pair.

I am in need of discs actually - does Supertrapp still make the discs for this Creep?

Tires, me?????? Been researching thread and was talking to KTMNate (went riding Thursday) about his... Will be replacing as soon as the decision is made as to which one... General specs are 50/50 tire - streetable enough for me to feel confident in the twisties here, but aggressive enough to work in the dirt. Can cost no more than a a single tire for my truck - if it does, it must be greater than 33" in diameter!

Considering haveing a pipe bent to replace the pre muffler.

Overall very happy with this pipe to date. As I took the stock can out of the garbage for photos for Meat I was amazed at the weight of it. This is a nice weight savings - I suppose I could drop a few pounds off my fat ass if I REALLY wanted to drop some weight huh?

In order of stuff:

Yea, they are standard 3" discs. Any shop will carry or can order them... If you live in Outer Mongolia and don't have a local shop. there are a whole bunch of us that have extras laying around and can mail you some.

I did the big "50/50, cheap, looks like they will work pretty good, research thing" and came up with Maxxis 6006s. I have some sitting in the garage right now that I think I will pop on this weekend.
ChrisC put some on his bike (had Saharas) and loves the rear, says the front is OK. About 80 bucks, the pair.

There is a pre-muffler replacement 'S' pipe available. The KTM part number is 583-05-175-400

I consider fat to be a form of ATGATT armor... to bad most of it is in my head

Sorry... I had my head up my ass there for awhile... to many exhaust threads at once. The IDS2 uses 3 inch discs... not the 4 inch the stock muffler uses.

And, I didn't look up the part... somebody else did. I just remembered where it was.

I'm a dealer/manufacturer and can get the SuperTrapp IDS2, extra discs, and can do a production run on an adapter mount bracket including rubber vibration dampers. Offer everything at a decent price. Just a thought, as I've been approached on this a few times now. The reason I did not just go out and make one already is the LC4 comes with a SuperTrapp and I figured there was no reason to replace it. It looks fairly easy for you guys to just make the mods and fit the IDS2 yourselves, but if there is interest in a ready-made kit I'd be happy to do it. No spam intended here, just a thought.
