Does the SE share the same rear fender as the adventure?
Quick search of the microfiche on KTM Twins should answer that one.

I am not positve if they are the same.

PO did a total hack job on my new to me SE.
They are not the same. You can however, use the super moto R plastic. They come in black, as well as in orange. I went orange just to deviate from the standard look. Works for me. Try munnracing.com They are good people.

Dont know part numbers, look at wemoto. EBC carbon rear, soft as fook and EBC sintered front....both not as good as OEM but cheaper and for cost lasts longer /mile.

IMHO the big twins 950/990/SE (etc...) need HH (high heat) sintered pads, as others simply wont last anywhere near as long. Stock may seem expensive, but its not, as I burned through a pair of EBC carbons in the rear in 300km, and stock will last for 1000+ (more if you're a less aggressive rider) of kms.

Stock Toshiba sintered are front #50313030200 (TT2701HH), rear: 60013030000 (2172 HHA)

I didn't want to pay for Akros either. I ended up putting Wings on my bike and saved some money. Seems like anyone running Wings have nothing but good things to say about them, myself included.

950 SE rad protection ?

After a number of thorough whacks to my beloved SE, the rad is toast, and requires replacement.

Is there anything out there that'll protect the rad ? Crash bars would work, but they do protrude making the bikes profile even wider (are there even crash bars for the SE ?), and as the tanks seems quite robust and able to absorb considerable impact, hence I think a protective frame around the rad is the answer.

Would appreciate any insight from my fellow inmates..

Thanks !

I've looked at the Wings but everything I've seen they're about the same $$ as the Akras...unless you gotta link ??

There was a thread awhile back about some of those aftermarket filters for the Adventures and Dukes that had an alloy housing and there was mention that they needed it (the alloy housing) to keep the hot air away from the filter. CJ racer commented something about the SE not needing it (because of different exhaust routing?) and you would just run a couple of pods. Two pods would be a lot cheaper than the $299 for the CPR setup.

For me the main benefit would be easier carb access but I'm inclined to stick with stock. Back in the 70's when I was riding Z1900's(KZ900 for you blokes) the hot setup was to ditch the stock airbox and fit pods for more horsepower. Years later people worked out that the bikes ran better with the stock airbox and the prices for used airboxes hit premium dollars because most had been sent to the dump.
I knew an eccentric and brilliant mathematician once who told me about a gull wing Mercedes that he had restored. He sent the motor back to Germany at great expense to be re built by the factory. His argument was that once you start modifying things it upsets the equilibrium of the original design and things no longer work in harmony. Although that hasn't stopped me from messing with stuff, but I always keep it in the back of my mind when I do.

I'd love to be able to replace my air filter with the tank ON

But with my SE running so WELL with STOCK jetting, needles raised 1 clip, desmogged & Akra's
I wouldn't Dare alter the stock setup = Flawless from sea level to 8000'

I'm not even fond of the aftermarket pre-filter setup

Seems everybody wants to do the "jetting kit" though

With the MH air box you can change the filter with the tank on and makes working on the carbs much easier

Tank removal for filter svc is a PITA
