Well I went to Nels on wednesday and got the bike ready to go only to find out that the old model of the turbine core titanium Q on my bike is extremely restrictive and robbing my bike of tons of power. So we didnt even complete the tune. Tyring to get a wings single can with strait through but havent heard back yet. After that I will go back and get the tune done. If anybody has a single wings, leo or akro please pm me. More to come later.

I have the quiet inserts in my Akro's and Nels suggested if I removed them I could probably gain another 3 hp, but I did not want the extra noise

I get that but mine is robbing 30% of my power apparently. First pull was 70 so it's definitely a big deal. It's funny though because it doesn't feel that down on power to me. He did show me your Dyno graph when I was there I believe it was 105. I know I'm going to lose some to a 2-1 but the extra range is worth it to me. I pulled apart my muffler when I got home and it made sense why fmf stopped making them. Looked like a fan/turbine but the whole center was solid creating tons of back pressure. I pulled it out but the perforated tube doesn't reach all the way to the end cap so without cutting it down 4 inches it won't work. Contacted fmf again to see if the new style screen type spark arrestor and end cap would fit but it won't. So I'm shit out of luck on that. Time to buy a new can and go back to the Dyno to get it running properly. I'm also getting around 28 mpg on the last dirt ride. Nels also blamed this on the muffler in combination with the 2-1. I'll update as soon as I get an exhaust that flows on there.

No, the 105 was my buddy with FMF pipes on a 2013 Baja, just looked at my sheet and mine was 109.45 hp and 71.82 ft pounds.
I really believe the 2 into 1 costs hp and I don't believe it really gains any torque.
My buddy had to pull the spark arrester screens before his FMF pipes would flow on the Dyno.

I wish there was a screen to remove in my can. Unfortunately a whole new muffler is needed. I thought about adapting a gsxr1000 muffler for the appropriate flow from a 2-1.

Went to go look at her in the garage, see how she was doing and there was a puddle under the front tire. Right fork seal leaking less than 3,000 miles. New seals ordered. I guess I'll be changing them out next weekend. Too bad this couldn't have happened when the temps were cooler.

It fits SXS05450230 on 06 950 ADV.

Dropped the bike a few months back and managed to snap the choke lever off the clutch master cylinder cover.

Saw these shiny Orange versions which In searching found Ktm PN SXS05450230. Which says its for the 950 SE..

Found lots of conflicting references but finally just ordered it off ebay..
(Kevin Powell Motorsports,, don't recommend them it didn't ship till almost a
week after the promise date which was already 2.5 weeks.. had to open a gripe to get them to ship.. )

Fits nice and its Orange.. And I dont have to sit there and hold the little bead for 5 minutes while it warms up..

Very good results!!!
Which map do you use?
I have Rottweiler air filter and leo cans.
Do you have PVM map or map for Tune ECU (hex).?

I had a tuner use TuneECU on a Dyno with sniffer to build a new map.

Hey Lycan, I would be really interested in your observations of the Mitas over the K60.

Ben, I had the same thing happen to mine. Ended up cleaning under the seal with a piece of 35mm film negative. It hasn't leaked since. Now that piece of film stays in my tool kit.

I've done that before on other bikes. I'll give it a try since it is worth trying. Parts are on order already, but I'll just save them for later if it holds.
