Stock Jetting with Needles Raised by lowering Clip one position After
Desmogged works GREAT with my Akra's, from 600-6,000 ft above
Sea Level 35-95 degrees on my 950 SE

Richer Jetting may be needed ONLY if in real cold climates.

Leaner Jetting may be needed if in High Altitude.

Air cleaner & air box setup changes will also need to be considered
as I'm running bone stock.

Just my .02 cents

Oil filter access

Hello All.

I bought my SE used.
I've noticed that there are two oil lines that are in front of the oil filter, which will make getting the oil filter out difficult. I think the previous owner did this.




Can anyone post a picture of how these oil lines are supposed to be located?
I'm going to change this to make the oil change procedure easier.

Thanks in advance.

Ahhh - a vacuum line. Interesting. I'll take a good look in the morning. Its funny, but here in the land of the motorcycles I couldn't find a bike shop to take me on with the KTM. I'll have an interpreter with me tomorrow... and don't shoot me, first stop is the Harley place. They aren't scared of big bikes

Stock fuel pump - a relatively new one, The other one shit itself on Cape York - we jury rigged fuel lines around the pump and got 1000km back to civilisatation and a new pump using gravity feed only

And they are not factory lines.

Holy crap!
It looks like the oil lines are going to the wrong ports!
Outside bottom goes to top on my bike but the manual shows outside bottom to lower.

Well, I've found some cracks in one of the vacuum leads, The one I tapped into to fit the Scotsoiler. I just taped it... haven't solved the backfiring problem yet though... there's obviously others I can't reach. I've bought some fuel hose from a local supplier - best I could get. Next step will be tank off, etc. My mate is running to Bali time. 9am has now turned into 11am. Beggars can't be choosers though.

I have tried, without success, to use a 'normal' lift bike stand for my 950 SE. I broke the aluminum one and the steel ones that I have seem to either lift the front wheel off the ground, or the back wheel off the ground, but not both. On the few occasions it was off the ground with both wheels, it seemed very unstable. My question is what bike lift stand works best for the 950 SE?

I use an alum MX bike stand that holds the front
tire off the ground & a street bike rear stand that
fits the spindles I installed in the swingarm to
to hold up the rear tire.

Only time I use the MX stand is for front tire changing
Cause the SE is Too Heavy to lift

Thanks...I was hoping that there would be a magical lift stand that someone knew about that would easily and safely lift it off of the ground without having to install somthing on the frame or swingarm....or installing an eight pound center stand. Today, I saw a heavy duty stand offered at Harbor Freight that might work. I believe I read that it would hold a thousand pound street bike, but I am afraid that it would once again be unstable once I got it up in the air...Thanks for the input. You got me thinking.

Harbor freight, sears, and others sell this one-



It works well and the 950 is stable on it... Though it goes Just barely high enough.

I can lift the rear. But I just use an ATV lift like the one pictured above.
