Hello from Montreal Canada.

I am jealous of you guys, we are getting into the spring season and I was only able to ride my bike for 5-6 km's.

I love this bike, by far the best I've owned so far.

I need your help on something, I am trying to purchase some Pazzo levers but the company in vancouver, British Columbia hasn't been able to theirs hands on a SD990 yest and therefore, they are not able to design these levers (www.pazzoracing.com).

They are looking for a local SD990 owner in the vancouver area and would require to have the bike in their possesion for a few days.

Can anyone help ?

Thanks !

They run a wet clutch that uses an oil jet. You are refering to the plexiglass clutch cover on Lostlobos bike?

The SuperDuke is my favorite out of the bikes I've owned(Kawasaki GPz750, Ducati 748S, KTM LC4SM, Ducati 1098). The handling is great as is the engine. Love the Akrapovics. I can ride all day no problem. I found I prefer naked bikes and the SuperDuke gives me sportbike handling with decent ergos. I do miss the supermoto and might pick up another to add to the garage.

Every time I look at these threads I start thinking about trading my 950SM for one...

I'd like to hear from people who tried both (and perhaps the 990SM), and
hear a word or two re differences.

I'm not into the whole SM thing, and usually love all naked bikes, BUT, I
don't see a single reason (ok, one, power) to get the SD over SM.

Seems to me SM is more usable everyday ride, probably more comfortable
and easier to ride.

SMT is the route I'd go, but that's another thread..

I guess if you want hardcore and a more focused bike, the SD is
probably a great choice. I'd have one over any other 1000cc naked
out there.. but I don't see it as a solution for my "problem", and can't
imagine having it as my only bike.. but I can see myself with the SM only..

I've had a 950SM for almost 3 years; chose it over the SD (and Tuono) because I felt (quite rightly as it turned out) that it would be a good bike for fun dirt roads and fun badly cratered roads- both of which we have an abundunce of in the NE. No regrets; and I liked the SD quite a bit.

I then picked up an SE, and figured I could sell/trade+$ the SM and replace it with a SD to take care of the 17" tire stuff and get a 19/17 and brake setup for the SE to make it close to what the SM is. I almost made the swap with someone on Advrider, but he decided to swap + cash for a regular Duke. Didn't break my heart; but I'd still consider doing it for the right deal because I really think the SD is a great pavement/trackday bike

But if I only had 1 bike right now, it would be the 950SM. But could definately live with a SD (or 950A, or SE, or 990 of any type )

I guess in my case, the difference is I come from a road racing, sportbike background. I miss the slightly tipped forward, feet slightly back riding stance of a sport-oriented bike, and the weight on the front end.

I love my SM, make no mistake, and it's probably not going anywhere...but if someone wanted to trade me for an SD with similar miles and farkles, I may very well do it.

I heard Chuck Norris rides a Super Duke.

Chuck Norris knows what rhymes with orange.
