Service/Shop Manual, online?

Where can I get a Service/Shop Manual for my 2007 950 SE? I am hoping to get it online/downloadable so I can work on the bike this weekend.

I wouldn't mind a free one but have no problem paying a reasonable amount to a reputable source.

I am trying to sort an electrical problem and the schematic would be very helpful. I'm also planning on doing the cannisterectomy and would like the manual to guide me through removing the tank, airbox, etc.

Thanks, jim

If you can find a downloadable version, that would (probably) be the way to go.

The KTM CD sucks. The SE is, definitely, an afterthought on the CD. You have to sort through the Adventure and SM-R stuff, and pick and choose the info. that pertains to the SE.

Just a friendly observation, before you spend your hard-earned cash...

buildit,
Thanks. Those are parts manuals and not "how to", but the exploded diagrams will definitely help me figure it out on my own if I can't find the "how to" variety.


WARRIORPRINCEJJ,
Thanks for the heads up on the info in the CD.

I'd buy one anyway just because I'm programmed that way.

A new friend helped me out with the manuals.

Carb bowl venting question

I'm doing the canisterectomy and SAS removal. This includes removing the valve that is attached to the bottom of the airbox which is connected to the two vents from the right sides of the carbs.

The SE has two carb bowl vents per carb, with one set from the right side going down to a Y and through the bottom of the airbox to the valve that's being removed. I've read that those lines are left venting to the outside of the airbox, with some replacing them with two separate lines.

The lines from the left side of the airbox (coming off the brass fittings) go forward, join, and then are connected to the top of the airbox being routed out the snorkel to reach the top of the airbox. I've read that most cap these and only use the two from the right side which are vented outside the airbox.

I've read that the purpose of the two vents from the left side (coming off the brass fittings) is to provide venting and balanced air pressure to the bowls during deep water crossings.

I'm wondering if there's a reason why I shouldn't leave the two vents from the left side as they are (going to the top of the airbox) and also keep the two vents from the right side of the carbs which vent outside the airbox throught its bottom?

Thanks, jim

Broken skidplate

I was doing a oil change, and I found the mountingbracket on the skidplate was off, and a bolt on the oiltank also.

The 950SE have only 4000km, I have tried it for fun on a mx-track.

I did not like this poor construction, and the bolts to the oiltank are very poor/thin too.....Cant anyone make a longer skidplate wich will be mounted to the frame, both in front and rear

Because of fact that the engine hangs in the trellis frame, I doubt that anyone would design a plate that mounts to the frame, front and rear.

However, I believe that the "Guard-it Technologies" (G-iT) plate mounts fore, aft, and midship.

A few of the guys have 'em, including Mark. Maybe they'll chime-in with better info.

I agree that the OEM plate offers limited coverage. And, I have seen a couple with hairline cracks on and near the mounting tabs...

A couple weeks ago I found my skid plate bracket broken the exact same way. I don't think I've taken any real big hits...
I was just thinking Frans the welder had an off day. I'm just running three mounting points for now. I guess a proper replacement is in order.

This headlight aim sucks...

So if I do not crank down my headlight adjustment bolt, the headlight beam pattern does not point at the road in front of the bike. In order to get mine down, and to a respectable beam pattern, I had to crank it down so far, that the bottom of the headlight bucket touches the fender....

Same for all of you?

If not, suggestions?

Thanks,
--Ross

Yes Exactly the same with mine. Had to crank it all the way down till it looks like it can't go any further.

Good to know that it is not just my bike.

Thanks!

I had to crank mine down but it doesn't touch the fender. I found that as I rode it started creeping back up again. I ended up puttting some caulk on the adjuster threads to keep it from moving anymore.

I used TWO Lock Nuts - its still looser than I like

My 950SE headlamp housing touches the frt fender too, but I use two washers on rear bolts to shim the front fender
evenly over the tire.
I do this on all of my bikes

Mine broke in the exact same spot as your picture. At that moment the bike had never seen an offroad/gravel road.

Good idea.
I also got extra rubber bushings from KTM to see if physically moving the housing up will solve it. Pics to follow. $13 solution?

More soon
