Hi.
I am a new member of the Superduke club, I have owned a KTM 950 Adv in the in past and my mate had a superduke 990s and I remember riding it and really enjoying it (except for the throttle) and decided that its time for a Sunday blast bike. I saw this at a dealer and was a reasonable price and in very good standard condition. I've only done 130 miles but I'm very happy with it, well I was right up to the point where it blew a coolant hose off and dumped it over my right leg so its back there for a repair. I had a chance to plug in the tune ECU cable and check out the map etc and I'm impressed with the program. The only stumbling block I've run into is trying to fit my HM quickshifter from my YZF750 onto it, I don't know how to wire in the 3 wire coils and it seems to be impossible to find a solution on Google. I've Emailed HM and they said use the KTM loom but that's for the 2 wire jobbies.

Cant wait for the bike to be returned and then the weather to warm up for a decent blast.

Yet another (08?) SDR resurfaces............................welcome.

SDR igntion coil wiring has an additional earth, for some reason, as per wiring diagram in Repair Manual that you can download here viewtopic.php?f=18&t=16897.

Lot of threads here on HM and other quickshifters eg viewtopic.php?f=18&t=11145&p=126581&hilit=quick+shifter#p126581

Well it's not going well for me and this bike! After a "spirited" ride the other day I noticed the bottom end was rumbling a bit when I got home, so dropped the bike back at the dealers and they have stripped it and the crank/rods are fooked!

He reckons its run dry for a second, I always keep the oil at least half on the tube but he says it needs to be full all the time (could of told me that when I bought it). Anyway he's footing the bill for the labour to strip rebuild it so I suppose I cant complain too much but he wants over £1400 for the parts which I can no way afford.
I've found some R rods and there a few cranks on Ebay but can anyone tell me if there is a difference between the R crank and non R and if there is would a standard Superduke crank fit?

Thanks.

I have a spare complete bottom half only engine as a result of two dropped valves on my original no.1 SDR.

Actually, the dealer should be paying for the lot surely, assuming there’s an appropriate warranty, and his oil level comment (attempted get out?) is nonsense as it’s a dry sump engine.

Re-reading your first post and if/when you get round to it, I also have a Protmi quick shifter off a Spanish SDR that I have no use for and which was hardwired into the three wire SDR ignition coils - attached to a spare set of Power Parts rearsets at the moment.

Cheers No47.
Are you looking to sell the bottom end? if so how much would you be after?

Best to agree price once we know that the bottom end is good enough.

Where are you based?

I'm in Grimsby, I only really need the crank if that makes it easier for you (postage wise)

Son's at Lincoln University and can bring up by car for collection from there.

Just had a look at the bottom end remains of this engine and had to remind myself that it's the OE engine and not the one that dropped valves twice within 50 miles in '15 and probably again 12 months/20k miles later in '16 (that one's still in the bike and on the bench awaiting strip down...............)

So it's the original engine from my no.1 ex-race SDR with circa 65-70k road (and unknown race) miles on it and has been sitting on the bench for over five years - probably not your best starting point, would not want to possibly waste your time and money and am reluctant to split engine for crank only.

Not bargaining, just explaining.....................happy to talk through if you pm your telephone number.
