Help a newbie out

Postby Tap78 » Wed Jul 25, 2018 7:22 am

Hi All,
Firstly My apologies for my ignorance in the matter it has probably been discussed over and over again on this forum but having trouble finding a definite answer.
Could someone please clarify if the 08 was the only year of the full fat SDR. I am looking to buy at the moment and i thought the SDR was the same from 08-11 however i am looking at an 09 White version and it's hard to say for sure but looking at the pics it doesn't look to have the factory Akra headers. It has the SDR tacho with the higher rev range but not sure how else to tell. Can anyone PLEASE help.

Aside from getting a vernier caliper to measure the diameter of the headers (I presume the Akrapovic ones would be bigger), the obvious giveaway is to look under the chin spoiler to see if the front header is straight or looped - the full SDR header has a loop to get the optimum length. If you can't see the bike in person, ask the seller if they can take a photo for you. The SDR wasn't limited to 2008 production only, but someone more knowledgeable than me would have to give you the full breakdown of the details.
Wheelies - they ARE big, and they ARE clever....

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18764 again......................2008-2011 SDRs are the full fat versions, I believe, but someone will correct me if not.

2008-2011 is correct

Obvious signs to look for are the exhaust headers as said above, the header for the rear cylinder goes forward past the sidestand on the full fat sdr with an extra loop under the engine. On the normal bikes the look doesn't go past the sidestand. But also the recounter, orange/red starts at 9800 for the normal bikes, full fat has the red zone at 10250.

Thanks for the help guys. I have asked the seller for some photo's to confirm but looking at the pics so far it looks like it has the higher rev limit but not the Akra headers which is just confusing me even more :? :?

It might have had a dash replacement as I believe
some were found to be faulty. So Km's/Miles may not be correct ether...

Why is it so hard to find a good SDR to buy. Found another one just listed for sale and this one looks to have the Akro headers but then it has the standard SD side fairings instead of the R. This is getting painful might have to just dig further into the pockets and pick up a 1290 instead.
