    goodbye 690, hello 950?

    hey - will be looking to chop in my 690sm for a 950sm in the morning......... need something a bit bigger (overall size and cubes.......) and am looking forward to carbs as opposed to f.i................ never really fully got on with it. lots of great pointers from mr dutch, so a big thanks to him for that.

    fingers crossed that it all goes to plan.

    06 Orange 950SM, orange frame, ally grab rails, gel seat, Ackros, DT-1, re-jet & dyno, plus suspension set up by X Bikes


    silver - does that mean the 950 will need a re-jet for akaropovic cans? dealer is chucking in a set and will fit them at first service.............

    Good move to change, you will not regret getting the 950 it suits the local roads superbly. Where are you in Norfolk?

    Nice one, you will love it.
    R1200 GSA, 950 Adventure and a little 525 is all one needs.

    Great choice, i just luuurve my 950, it just gets better and better, just fitted full R&G and a 16tooth front sprocket after 1st service.........

    Can't afford aftermarket exhaust yet but it still goes like stink, and sounds pretty good standard.

    Enjoy, Jade

    hi jade - as mine is an unregistered 06 model they included the cans as part of the deal which i was really chuffed about........ i'm not bothered about 'old' colour on frame and stickers on the tank - although a lot of people were, hence i got a good deal ............... dutch was on about full r+g (which makes sense) and the 16 tooth front sprocket. dropping a tooth on the 690 made a difference ............. but as you say, this bike is quick. can't wait till i pick it up on friday 14th............ i will miss the 690; enjoyed it, but a bit too small and the f.i was a bit of an ordeal at times.

    i can't stop smiling!
