2009 690 SMC arrival

Recommended Posts

Uh oh, now I need to make a decision without being able to ride one first! The KTM test fleet is scheduled to be at a local dealer on April 4th, but my dealer just told me my 2009 SMC is coming in this Thrusday or Friday.

Oh well, going ridin this weekend... :)

Well, I picked up my 2009 SMC! Wow, I can't stop smiling every time I ride, that has to be the most fun you can have with your clothes on! :usa:

I'm glad I read as much as I did about this bike prior to picking it up, otherwise the left rear turn signal would be melted goo. I immediately took the bike straight home from the shop and epoxied a modified spoon to the underside of the turn signal, to deflect the direct blast from the exhaust. That works incredibly well. I also switched the map from poor gas quality setting the dealer had to number 2 for best performance. :thumbsup:

An unbelievable bike, very light handling, responsive, torquey and just more fun than I imagined!

I ran map setting 2 on mine a few times but it's too sensitive. Aside from a little more grunt down low, I didn't notice much difference in the mid-top range. Setting 3 is my favorite.

Glad you like the bike!

I also prefer setting 3 on my enduro. FYI, for smoother throttle control, I got a G2 throttle with milder throttle pull cams. I really like it!
