Congrats for the awsome bike, really agressive.

I take it thats a custom top yoke to allow enough fork for the clip-ons?

I have moved the fork tubes up about 25mm both for quicker steering and enough meat to bolt the Gilles adjustable clippon's .No room to bolt them under the top tree.Cheers

I d certainly have one ... even over the superduke, I think you'll be making similar power to SD but the extra suspension travel would be great around the carttracks the UK call roads :)

Very nice...... is that a modified stock exhaust system on there :?:

Love the clipons to, hmmm... need to look more at getting some fork extensions made up for the SD :idea:

Stock exhaust until ball joint then modified a Honda 1000RR Arrow GP2 system.I now run Duc Monster SR4 bars in place of the clippons as they suit my riding style better especially on track.Cheers

although better than an SMR now... did this start life as an SM?

Can someone tell me what the differences are between the SM and the SMR? I just got an 07 SMR used (1500) miles and I am trying to figure out what the standard equipment is on this bad boy. I am pretty sure the leo vince cans are aftermarket along with the moose racing bars and hand guards.

SMaller tank, powder coating and paint only. No other differences.

Didn't the smr have forged lightweight wheels? Or is that the 990 only?

990 may have done, the 950 was deffo just paint and tank. I guess you could also add in the seat which is harder/narrower and throw in the seat lock mechanism which is at the back of seat on the 950smr, not on the side as per the 950sm.

2009>2011 SMR came with forged wheel, this 2008 SM came with Alloy wheels, 2012>2013 SMR has Alloy wheels with ABS.
