SER with 17's ?

So for those that have run a street setup on your SER? Did you have to mod or swap your sidestand?

Cheers Ken

I'll be curious on this answer too as I'm getting ready to start running track nights here and I've been running 19/17 but want to go with a 17 up front. no impact on the side stand with the 19 up front and 17 rear wearing Conti Attacks.

who's got a 17/17 that can weigh in???

Yes, you have to shorten the sidestand.

Park the bike on pieces of timber, same thickness under front and rear wheel. When you are happy that it's sitting correctly, measure how thick the timber is and thats how much to cut off the stand.

Weld on a 65mm diameter x 2.5mm plate as a larger foot while you are at it :)

I have run mine without cutting the sidestand, it's just kind of a pain. I you pay attention, park on the slope of a road or parking lot, an alayss have the wheels uphill it can be done. Having said that, after a while I cut my sidestand. The centerstand remains unchanged and works both ways, it's just more work to use with thee 17's.

I would be more worried about trail size than I would be about the side-stand one.
And a question to those who run a 17 front, when you are deep in a turn, pegs scraping and such, how responsive and accurate is the steering?

Next question? Anybody simply switch to a SM side stand? Or would that be too short? SE side stand is listed at 349mm and SM is 236mm. 113mm is a substantial decrease.

You may want to confirm the compatibility but the standard 990 Adventure of years 2010 and up has a 335mm side stand.

I made my original stand adjustable but it didn't stand up to a fully loaded bike and me being lazy dragging myself off the bike after a long day of riding. I just shorted it and bought a new stand from KTM parts on line it was around $70 bucks. my suggestion just by another stand and shorten one of them.

To me there is no turning or steering that happens once the bike is fully leaned in. Very slight counter-steer corrections, and the bike reacts totally normal for that. Just like my R6. Turn-in is different, but once turned in it is the same.
