Just got my first ktm, a 2005 625 smc with 700 miles :) I love the bike, just had a blast in the malibu canyons. <any ktm clubs in socal?>
Thinking about getting a new set of black <or other color> plastics but have had a hard time finding them on the net. Also has anyone tried the corbin or ktm comfort seat? Im also thinking about doing some things to increase the power such as an akrapovic exhaust and jet. Have you guys seen a good power increase? I believe the bike has already been de restricted. What is a good price for exhaust? Is the akrapovic the only one available? Thanks guys for any info!

i have done the corbin seat and it was shit tons better than the stocker, but not good enough for a long ride like 150+ miles. im going to try and have some gel added to it, then it should be really sweet. i really like the ride height change, about 2in lower.

2 in lower sounds cool... I bet that would change the handling of the bike a bit. Im curious if anyone has compared the corbin to the ktm optional seats :)

I left the shrouds - it needed some orange to offset the black:

Well done :thumbup:

I like the offset of colors, plus you still display the KTM trademark orange :D


I am hoping to join the ranks of smc owners soon. I'll admit I do have a nagging interest in the Husky 610, but I am sure that my long time lust for the lc4 engined gem will prevail :thumbup: :D

i like the husky 610 strongly considered it. i like the bigger gas tank and 6th gear. i found a good deal on my 625 smc with only 700 miles and i didnt have enough cash to get the husky, and i didnt want to finance the additional 1500 or so. I also like the aftermarket support, dual pipes, proven reliability and dealer support. But if i were buying both new i would be hard pressed paying the additional money for the ktm.

Do you have a source for carbon fiber panels for the SMC? Also, for those of you with the rotor with the orange anodized carrier, did you just epoxy a magnet on there for the speedo pickup? :hmmm:

Wow, the CF parts are pricey. Mooner, how long have you had your CF parts? How are they holding up? I've seen some CF that seems to get damaged from the sun. Almost like it gets dried out and starts to fade.
