Curing my 950 Adv glovebox headaches with CPR "Snap Out"...

Got to hang at the CPR fab shop and lend my bike to the design process for the 950 Adventure version of the "Snap Out" bracket. The "Snap Out" bracket is a witty devise Chris at CPR came up with that anchors the glove box all in one piece to a quick release mount (thus the "Snap Out" name... turn the Dzus fastener and SNAP that glovebox contraption mofo OUT!)

Problem with the 950 Adventures is the ECU black box prevents the "Snap Out" bracket from fitting flush at the fuel tank mounts. Chris quickly came up with a sister bracket solution on his computer utilizing the stock KTM bracket grommets and mounting points.



Chris machining a sister bracket prototype to the "Snap Out" which easily relocates the 950 Adventure's ECU black box below.



With the new ECU relocation bracket, the "Snap Out" works with a stock 950 Adventure snorkel...



Or a Uni prefilter.



Dzus fastener installed by simply drilling into the plastic and using supplied hardware. This kit is very easy to do. In fact there was no need to remove the tanks. Just remove the tank mounting hardware and mildly lift the tank up enough to slid the "Snap Out" bracket into place. Easy Peasy.



I had a great time hanging out at CPR Fab. It's very humbling to see such a high level fabricator, but Chris and his wife are welcoming hosts to guests at his shop.



And after checking out the trick exhaust systems Chris has been creating for the LC8's I can't help myself from picturing my bike with a new two into one exhaust... along with the Rottweiler filter kit. Humm?

I have one of the older 950s, and I want that bracket and ECU relocater when they are available.

Isn't the front of the seat hooking to the glove box?

How does it do with the glovebox attached at a single point?

The only issue I had installing the snap out on my 990 is that the front straps for my tank bag need to run under it. Two little washers under the front mount bolts fixed that right up.

Nice to see a 950 solution.

CPR website says this mod only works with the Rottweiler filter but I don't see why. Any ideas?

Doohh...

The most important photo...



I didn't even have to remove the seat, just lift up on the seat front and separate the tab from the glove box.

This contraption is very clever. Off went my dirty prefilter in a nano.

I'm hoping there's more stuff like this coming out of the CPR lab. Maybe a nice set of low fender riser brackets... ( wish list ).

Changed this morning. (10/7) Thanks to DesertSurfer's time in donating his 04 950, we have a bracket for the 03-06 950 guys that comes with an extra piece that moves the ECU down about 10mm to clear the mount.

The Snap Out also fits stock air boxes now. It clears the snorkel or pre filters nicely as shown in the pics above.

To address the question on the seat, it really clips to the subframe, not the air-box so much and the Dzus fastener used to hold it in has been used on aircraft for decades so it will NOT come out.

Cheers and thanks DesertSurfer for the time, bike and post.

Cheers,
Chris

I guess that why we are in the KTM parts business and not we updating. All fixed! Thank you for catching that page. All KTM Adventure lovers can take their T-20 torx bits and toss them when it comes to filter service.

We are also working on editing "how to" videos for just about everything we make. It's allot of work so please be patient. We will get there!

I guess they are talking about brackets to raise / add clearance to the original front wheel fender ...
