I love this bike - it was my first KTM and it begat me a 950 Adventure and that encouraged the purchase of a 540SX which simply begged for a supermoto setup. Suddenly the Duke was the bike that sat in the garage and never got ridden. I've done a ton of work on it and it's making upwards of 55rwhp in a completely reliable way (not so my SX sadly - it's engine rebuild is part of what precipitates this sale). Anyway, here's the list of mods:

• Mikuni TMR flatslide from Schneiders in Germany (about $1000)
• Oversize valves (from Schneiders)
• Sport cam (from Schneiders)
• Floating rotor
• New rains
• correctly cored and repacked exhaust (very deep)
• Y-pipe
• front header (from Schneiders) but not mounted yet.
• Scott's damper (custom mount)
• KTM hand guards

The bike has been dyno'd along all changes and now makes 54rwhp up from 43rwhp stock. It's a wheelie machine to say the least and it's very clean with only a few minor scuffs. People usually think it's a new bike. It has 3600 miles and is rarely ridden but starts instantly on the button and is nicely carbed (much nicer than stock).

I'm asking $6000 which is fair considering there was over $3000 into the engine alone. I think I'll regret this but I need a good sport tourer and this is not that bike. Email me here.

It's funny how almost every bike for sale on Supermotojunkie is also posted on ADVrider. Love the bike, dude. I just don't have the lettuce right now.

I discovered that I had more into it than I thought. Here's an updated list:

• Mikuni TMR flatslide from Schneiders in Germany (about $860)
• Oversize valves (Schneiders $115)
• HD Valve springs with titanium retainers (Schneiders $284)
• Sport cam (Schneiders $450)
• Floating rotor (KTM Hard Parts)
• New rains
• correctly cored and repacked exhaust with polished powdercoat (very deep)
• Y-pipe (KTM Hard Parts)
• front header (from Schneiders $512)
• Scott's damper (custom mount $600)
• KTM hand guards
• KTM Airbox Lid ($50)
• License plate bracket eliminated with the plate mounted (with light!) to back of the airbox.
• Factory Took Kit.
• All original owners manuals (engine, frame, suspension etc.)
• 3-ring bound Shop Manual
• Revalved WP suspension
• Fresh chain and sprocket.
• carbon fiber oil filter cover (I'm almost embarrassed to admit that)

I also mounted that new Schneiders header and it made a very noticeable bump in the midrange. This bike feels more power than my 540SX which is impressive considering the weight difference.

Also, some new photos:









New price too: $5900 OBO

You might want to reconsider this!!!! :headscratThis is an absolutely gorgeous bike!:bowdown::bowdown: Don't do it - this is a keeper for sure.

If I didn't just buy an Aprilia, I'd snatch it up.
