Hello Folks!

Postby Malthound » Tue Aug 07, 2018 2:50 pm

Brand new SD owner here, I just picked up an 07 anthracite 990 and I'm really enjoying it. I already have an 04 BMW R1150RT, an 04 KTM 450 EXC, and a '16 1190 Adventure so having a sporty little number rounds things out really well. I live in the Boulder Colorado area so access to twisties is close and easy for a quick afternoon of playing hooky and on a recent run over the Peak to Peak highway I realised very quickly that at my age and skill level I will likely never out-ride this bike. What a kick. Anyway, I've also discovered that the previous owner wasn't as neat and tidy as I would have liked, and I've torn the bike down to brass tacks to give everything a thorough cleaning and inspection and have found a host of minor nits that need to be addressed - missing hardware, worn out heat shields, poor quality farkling, etc. During that effort, I decided to install a Rotty intake, SAS removal, PowerCommander V, and Yoshi pipes. I'll have updates and questions in the other threads very shortly. Also, I guess I need to figure out how to upload pictures and set up my profile, so bear with me a bit..

Welcome in!
Lots of modifications threads for the 990’s here.
Look in the ‘How to do it’ section for posting pictures. SD.net does not allow for direct uploads so you have to host them offsite (imgur, photobucket) and use the [ img ] to post’em here.

Welcome Malthound. A well sorted 990 is still an awesome bike to get your kick on, no matter what the 1290 boys say.
