So how did it go - cant say I noticed any difference in power ( wasn't expecting too) and it felt slightly less jerky around corners . The idling is down a bit which is great as 2k felt quite high although I know that's how it's meant to be . The bike did feel a bit jerky around 4-5 k revs at 100-120 km . Possible that the roads were a little bumpy but just felt like the bike was more erratic than before .
I'm having a few problems with the tuneecu connection when the bike is started - it looses the connection after a few seconds . I've tried earthing the cable and changed the settings to com port but still no difference - any advice .
Next step - fit a airfilter to the top of the air box

The Akra map is way to rich for our fuels, I would be trying a few different maps, there should be quite a difference in mid range power going from a STD to Akra map.

I thought I would add the latest mod.

This is a new mod I did over the past few weeks, you remove the Leo baffles & this insert goes inside it from the inside just push the Alloy sleeve in no need to bolt it up as it fits in snugly.

You can double click on the diagram & can zoom in.

Excellent work!
I remember long hours toiling in a pre-pc drafting course (dating myself -- pc's were out, but sw was incredibly $$$).
Plus you had to do it by hand.
Very easy to see what is needed in this.
Mods: arrow exhaust, 2nd flies removed, plugged air injection caps, JC30-80 air filter, 44T sprocket, 80w high beam, short levers, weighted bar ends, Rox risers, remapped ecu, heated grips, horn, radiator screen, crash bar, skid plate, backrest.

Looks really good Kev - one thing - you need to add the weight of the carbon heat shields to you saving calcs :)

How does that little fly screen work for you?

I left the carbon covers off as most would not fit them, both weighed together below. Fitting the SMR rails & carbon covers saves you around 2480grams.

I still have to do something with the screen shape, that will be my next mod, I love the air on me & am not really into screens as it does not get cold enough here, the air hits me in the upper chest not the visor as with the SMT screen.

Kev, or anyone that has pulled the tank off an SMT, I need to know if I am on the right track. I am ready to put the tank back on after removing flies and SAS etc and hook up laptop.
BUT my best googling efforts could not find detailed instructions to get tank off. The manual is fairly vague, and I finished up "hinging" the mask spoiler out of the way to get the last screw out of the inside trim of the mask spoiler. This results in outer spoiler attached, inner detached and tank comes off. Got tank off OK, but will be a bitch to get that first screw back in.
The manual (pg 139) says remove screws, pg 140 it magically disappears (mine is still there!!). I can't see myself getting it off without pulling the front of the bike apart :(
Am I missing something? I will have a go in the morning, but if there is an easier way......

Thanks, I will muddle through tomorrow but I have to do it all over again in 3 or 4 weeks when the DNA arrives. BTW, I left the snorkel off the stock airbox this time round. Sounds like the go til I get the DNA Mk3?

As per the previous page 2010 SMR vibration dampers, I have a spare set if anyone wants a pair as I ordered 2 sets.

Image

I used the SMR one so they can be used with the hand guards.

Hey Kev, The site you bought your 43T sprocket from doesn't ship to canada. :( is there a Talon number on it that I can use to source one over here? much thanks if you do me this favour.

Wow that is strange they said they would ship world wide to me, here is their Ebay ad with a 43T for sale shipping world wide except your areas, if you can't find one I can buy it & post it on to you. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/KTM-950-LC8- ... 5d3d765fe5 .This sprocket will fit even though they say 2006 to 2009 the rear sprocket is unchanged from 2006 to 2013.
Sorry I don't have the 43T part number

I'm going to be reading up on all your mapping work and related mods over the next few days. I thought I'd be ok with the stock map for awhile but after spending a day on the track with the bike I think I'll be working on smoothing out the mapping sooner rather than later. Just wanted to say thanks in advance for all the info.

Not that I plan to track the SM-T on a regular basis but it still struck home the need to address the issue. I'm not chasing HP, want to smooth out the light switch effect of the throttle. In it's current factory state I was forced to run through the more technical corners in a higher gear than I'd like in order to keep the RPM lower so as to soften up the throttle. Not optimum.

Other than that the bike was a real gem on the track though. What a hoot to harrass sportbikes on this beast. :twisted:

I'm using 91 R+M/2 here in the states. Should be very close to 95 Ron. I'm going to pick up a cable and load the map to see if I can get a satisfactory tune for now. Plan is to throw some slip-ons on it to shed a bit of weight in the next couple of months and then see about getting a custom map done at the local dyno shop.

An interesting tidbit from the Northwestern Hemisphere.
Just received a Supersprox dual metal 44T sprocket. The chain ring is steel, the inner ring is aluminum.
Drum roll, it weighed 777.1 grams.
Versus 779g for the stock 42T sprocket (using Kev's picture as reference).

Lot 'o $ for 2 grams. ~$90. Ouch. Good thing it's pretty.
I doubt the JT sprockets in steel would have weighed any amount more.

I guess I like Koolaide.
