  1. I figured now we have a bike, I'd put this thread here. What we have is a 2011 KTM 990 Adventure with just 3,000 miles! It's very clean and has never even been off road before. We hope to change that! My objective is to have a bike we can bring to all our regional events that can showcase some of the best the after market vendor world has to offer. It's purpose is to become a basis of discussion as to how these things make a difference in our riding. One of the reasons I picked a 990 is primarily because we couldn't get a new bike donated! It's also because there are a lot of people making stuff for the 990 and it has a lot of good real estate on which to put custom graphics wrap on. Besides, the 990 also happens to be a great bike in the dirt. It's also important to note here that none of this stuff is "free" that we're getting just because XLADV is so awesome. This bike came out of my pocket and most of the aftermarket parts are being provided at simply a discount. I'm happy to showcase these products and put sponsors' logos on the bike for their efforts. That's one thing I wanted XLADV to stand out for and that's a solid partnership with the v
  2. Since we've started this project bike, the most frequent question I've been getting is "so how do you like the 990 vs the GSA?" I can tell you it's been a lot of fun! I really like what is obviously better off-road handling and the highway comfort is not as bad as I expected (my Seat Concepts seat sure helps!). While I love my GSA too, I can't say that I'm missing it that much yet. There are a few interesting surprises though that I didn't expect. For example, I thought the 990 was like 100 lbs lighter or something but the specs show the dry weight is just 32 lbs lighter! Also, the 990 has loads more travel, right? Nope. Only with the 990 (R spec suspension from Konflict) has front/rear travel of 248mm/248mm vs the GSA's 210mm/220mm! My stock 990 Adventure came with 210mm/210mm; about the same as the GSA (less in the rear). The center of gravity is also much higher and that, combined with less front end feel (suspension is so good), and you'd best be light on that front brake or you're going to low-side really damn fast! Ask me how I know! The gearing is also taller than the GSA's legendary tractor gearing, but that's easily addressed with larger rear and smaller front sprockets. Bottom line: Much better in the dirt and not as bad on the highway as expected. Pro's: Lots more off-road fun, feels more powerful, nimble, suspension doesn't bottom out (my TFX Suspension on the GSA doesn't either anymore) Con's: Really tall, taller center of gravity, taller gearing, sucks gas big time when you're on the throttle. * I should note here that this switch was due to type of riding I like most. I was looking for something not similar to the GSA but 21/18" wheels, more travel and more dirt-able. The 990 has not fallen short of my expectations, I can assure you.

    Great ride. Had a 2012 road that I started with and upgraded when I found a deal on a used XC. Larger front wheel and better suspension were huge. That said, the the stock suspension sucks for someone bigger than average. With some upgrades it has been a great dual sport and tourer.

    Details: New wider seat to help keep comfortable on that long commute or dual sport ride. The added width and foam density will help keep the seat from being an item to stop you from going on that ride or enjoying the bike. The new V2 version is redesigned with a sleeker design and more room at the front before it gets wide. There is less slope into the tank in this model also. Fits Models: KTM 950 KTM 990 Notes: This seat shares the comfortable shape of our low seat but now available 1.5 inches taller than the KTM flat seat. Standard density is good for riders weighing 160 - 250 lbs. Softer or firmer foam available on request for no extra charge. This is the TALL seat - - - - - Important Information: Kit purchase is only for the COVER and FOAM for OEM pan. It DOES NOT include the pan. The Complete Seat option comes with kit mounted on aftermarket pan and ready to ride. We'll install it for you: If you want us to install the cover on your seat pan for you, please ship your seat pan to us after you make your purchase. You will also need to select the 'Installation' Category on the Category Menu on the left, then click on 'Seat Installation' and add that to your cart before you checkout. The charge is $20.00 for us to install the cover on your seat pan for you.

    Seat Concepts Replacement Foam and Seat Cover (doesn't include pan.) We cut the rear down on this model to help remove the slope into the tank. With this change and slightly wider rear makes for a more comfortable and supportive seat. This seat is made with our proprietary foam for better comfort and support which leads to longer and more enjoyable rides. Your choice of Carbon Fiber or Gripper/Carbon Fiber seat cover options and +$45.00 for matching pillion cover.
