ktm 950 super enduro

Hey, I'm new and ignorant here but have a question. I currently ride a BRP but am thinking about moving up to a KTM 950 SE for Baja. There is one on ebay now that looks like a deal, anyone have experience with the 950 in Baja type terrain? Any info is appreciated, thanks!

All I know is a friend had one and every time he took it out something failed on it. Not huge trips or anything, all on road, but every single time he did so he was left on the side of the road with a broken down 950.

few people here have one, I have not heard of any problems with them

check advrider, LOTS Of info on them there

I had and 07 and an 08 and loved both of them! Never had one issue. I rode a good bit of the Trans American Trail on the 08 and the only problem I had was picking it up after a long day of riding (8-10 hours).

They are VERY TALL, if that's not a problem for you than buy it!

I'm sure I will have another one brfore to long.



Great Pic's! I have an 07', actually my second. The first one that I picked up caught on fire at 41 miles and melted due to a fuel purge valve problem which caused the catalysts to go nuclear! Only 1400 miles on the second one now in three years, most of which is off-road and I love it!

I hope you like picking up heavy things.

It's worth every bit of the trouble picking it up! I have yet to meet anyone that has RODE one that did not like.

      Who says you cant be competitive on a 550 lb Bike??

      What are these? Big heavy 550- 600 pound road bikes with dirt tires and an upright position?
      That seems to be them.
      To me an "adventure bike" is one that you travel on remote roads which aren't developed.
      If you're not able to pick it up when you drop it ( and you should daily ), then it's not an adventure.
      Try picking up a 600-700 pound bike by yourself on a loose steep road....ain't gonna happen.
      So it beats me why these bike manufacturers don't take a DR,KLR,XR and give them a 6 speed tranny, and a modern suspension. These are the real adventure bikes...fun,light and you can power slide and get her loose without worrying about being crushed when you drop. The only one that's up to speed is the KTM. Instead, these are stuck in the 1980's tech department.

      Hello all,
      Long time lurker, new member here. Read the LC4 thread index on adv but couldn't find any help there.
      I own an 04' 625 smc with about 15500 miles.
      It recently went out on me. The rocker arm follower bearing seized and cause havok inside the rocker cover. New rocker arm assemblies (intake and exhaust) installed, new rocker shafts, new 690 rallye cam, and new cam bearings. The old cam was shredded from the follower bearing seize.
      So now that's all replaced and put back together, there is another issue. Though it may be the original issue that caused the follower bearing failure in the first place.
      My oil flow into the frame neck seems to be very low to nill. I can not get the frame to burp oil out of the upper frame plug as needed. It ran for 5 minutes without any oil coming out. There seems to be little to no oil building up in the frame tube. Either its being suctioned out too fast or pumped in too slowly. 
      So question is, what to do? I have checked the oil lines going to the frame neck for debris.
      How can I properly check the oil flow into the frame neck?
      I've read that the oil bypass piston on the bottom of the sump can get stuck. 
      Although this doesn't seem like it would cause the low oil flow.
      Could it be one or both of the oil pumps? If so, how can I check the flow/pressure these are putting out, do I just loosen all of the banjo bolts slowly to see if oil is flowing?
      Any help would be greatly appreciated,
      Thank you,
