FYI, These points ARE available seperately, just not from KTM. K&L supply sells them for one...

After reading a number of great reviews, I decided to try a pair of Barrett exhaust cans... http://www.barrettexhausts.com.au/photos.html
Should arrive next week. I'll update after mounted and tested.

950 Super Enduro "Quick Question(s)" Thread...

Not sure if any SE owners would want, but this happened, and before it goes in the trash, it's up for grabs.

SE subframe, complete break/failure. Looks like with some TIG skills, you can have a complete back rear sub.

You can pickup at my home in AZ 86406 or at my work in CA 90710





This is with me at work right now, Harbor City, CA and can be picked up for free. Let me know.

Since no one has responded and you could probably use a data point, mine has not.

Thanks, and thats great, hang on to it! I'm searching the OC threads as I recall seeing some discussion a while back about safari leaks, but haven't found any discussion where it rubbed through in a pressure point area. Even if I fix it it's still going to rub so it might be fruitless. It'll be a project for a rainy day, stocker back on and I have a rear aux tank. Cheers.

Mine has not rubbed through. Luckily, I caught the problem areas early in the process and was able to mitigate the problem with a tire tube. As for the repair, it should be doable. There is a plastic repair place in South Phoenix that does some high end repair work and has successfully fixed a safari tank that I once owned. The tank had nearly been cut in two (don't ask why). The repair was impressive and is still holding, a couple of years later. The shop is http://www.philipsplastics.com/

I lengthened a short stand for my SE. External strengtheners before the foot lever, and with new springs it just about worked. It seemed heavy and lazy to come to the UP position. If you're having problems, be aware that the factory long stands have the foot lever remain the same distance from the mounting, and the extension is below the lever resulting in a lighter stand in the UP position. Wind the spring adjuster to max tension. Cheers.

I've had two and they both rubbed in the same places. I'm not convinced they all rub, but many do. I wouldn't worry too much. If you haven't had it off in awhile it wouldn't hurt to check the next time you pull the tank for whatever reason. I put some rubber tubing on my current bike frame before I installed it and put some duct tape on the tank, but didn't know it was going to leak so that was a good mitigation strategy, just a little too late. below is a pic from one my previous SEs the tank was on and the areas it rubbed.

Ok, thx Ice rider

Mine is at max tension. I'm gonna try two new springs to start, then maybe sneak a third in there to help with more tension.

I didn't lengthen the stand, but both springs got weak with age and I was too cheap to buy new springs so I went to a local motorcycle salvage yard and matched up a spring the best I could and paid the guy a quarter at the counter and put it on right in the middle of the two springs. Ran three springs instead of two and it worked great.
