That may well be true but christ man don't let the 690 boys hear you saying stuff like that, there even more sensitive than xr riders.
We could have a full blow war on our hands if they found out.

is any one keen to swap a near brand new 570berg for a decent 950-990.
My strom including 2.5 sets of wheels suspension and all the gooey bits less than 11k - Ithink a varedo could be done for the same money!


admidittly I wont have the pure dirt of a 650 r but ill have a reliable long distance twin cruiser with the ability to go most places!

if weight is not an issue. just sayin, thats all
'08 KTM 990 Adventure

Due to an expanding family, the bike needs to go. I'm not using it like I used to, for long trips and the like. So now it's time to downsize and limit my rides to short day trips near home.

I bought it new from Kessner KTM in Adelaide in December 2008.

It's done 50,319km. It recently had a new fuel filter and o-rings. The water pump was done and the valves were still within spec at the last service.


It's got the following extras:

Akropovic Pipes

Emig Racing Triple Clamps and Dampner

"Hard Parts" Crash Bars

"Hard Parts" Pannier Racks

"Hard Parts" Gobi Hard Plastic Panniers w/ 7L Water storage

"Hard Parts" KTM Tank Bag

"Hard Parts" Carbon Fibre Exhaust Heat Shields

Unifilter Pre-Filter

Rallye-Raid Products Carbon Fibre Windscreen (Still have original screen.)

Ram Mount on dash for Garmin GPSmap 60CSx (I'll look at throwing in the GPS)

Hard wiring for Garmin GPS


The front suspension I have upgraded the springs from .48 to .58 including re-valving to suit the heavier springs. This was done by Hoey Suspension here in Adelaide. (It's way too soft in standard trim.)

Rear suspension is untouched.

$12990
