+1 I havent read what actually happened - or how the case got hit - or by what?

BTW, I banged my blackdog plate - not that hard I thought - and it deformed so much that the lip bit into the stator cover. When I tried to straighten it, I got a big sledge hammer and a 4x4 block of wood to use as a punch. I was mentally prepared for quite a bit of hammering to straighten it out. And bugger me ... one hit and it was straight.

I've generally been of the opinion that the TT - with the steel subframe + Alu plate was going to be stronger. Thats what Ive got now. I sold the BD.

FWIW the SE has a little rubber loop to keep the kickstand up - which I managed to fit to my adv....

It does the trick on the SE, even though the side stand switch pee's me off...It is a good safety feature for the occasional absent minded like me.

rburkat mentioned "disabling the kickstand switch" in his first post above. How is this done, and if done incorrectly will it screw up anything else?

If I'm not mistaken, the 990 needs a little module that you plug into the wiring harness where the sidestand switch would've.
Mine is on order from CJ with my sidestand relocator, which is currently back-ordered. They're probably available elsewhere too.
Not sure if the 950 is the same.

Charlie264 - I didn't know that there was another option for a sidestand locator beyond Blackdog & CJ or I would've taken a closer look at yours.

When I had the HOLE in my motor, we had to remove the kickstand for obvious reasons. In the morning, when the JB Weld had properly set, I tried to start it up.........Oh crap, forgot about the stupid SS sensor. 3 wires on the 990 (mine's an '07) and not knowing anything about how it worked, I tried touching any/all wires together, grounding combinations,....nothing worked. We thought it might be some type of mass sensor, and tried everything we could think of.

Then we took the little magnet off my riding partner's front wheel for his TrailTech speedo sensor, and taped it up to the 990's sensor, and,......VVROOOOOM . So the 990 sensor is apparently triggered by a magnet embedded in the sidestand???? Couldn't see indicator of that, but our magnet trick got me the 400+ miles home

Sure did suck getting a fully loaded 990 on the center stand every single time I stopped, but not as bad as walking.

No worries, its just a simple solution done in small numbers...no advertising just word of mouth.

I can't picture what your version connects to......do you have a close up from a different angle or can you descibe it? Will it fit with all skidplates?
My preference was the CJ one as sometimes I climb on via the left footpeg and theirs seems strong enough, so I'm wondering if your version is mounted and sized to take that abuse.

Edit: charlie264 - no need for pictures - found the thread.

It's not. You can connect the wires on the 950 and it's a done deal.

1. Knobs on strong (Woody's or the equivalent) wheels.
2. Suspension rework, something like Superplush does.
3 A burly skidplate like the Weld 86 I've been saved by.
4. A G2 throttle cam for sanity's sake (if applicable).
5. More fuel capacity, like my Adv Tank.

That's a good start, anyway.

6. And maybe include a Rekluse EXP clutch-- I haven't tested it yet, but I have a hunch it will be a boon off-road.

Love mine.
Ever kill your motor trying to tractor up a steep loose trail?
I know that feathering the clitch works here, but the Rekluse does it for you, and better. Starting out on that loose steep hill after you kill it is very hard to avoid wheelspin. Rekluse makes it easy.

Going down the steep and loose? Rear brake all you want, and never kill the motor. It simply makes everything easier. But if you rode it and if I didn't tell you it had a Rekluse, you likely wouldn't know. You CAN use your hand clutch like normal if you want.

Just do me a favor, buy it from CJ.

Can you put bar risers (~30mm) on the 990 ADV without changing out cables?

I have Rally Connex riser on my 950 with a Pro Taper Carmichael bar. I think they are around 1 1/4" high. Cables are long enough. Should be the same for the 990.
