‘It’s a sim­ple mat­ter of give and take’

NEEM VAN DER REEST 2007 KTM SU­PER DUKE 990

Performance Bikes (UK) - - YOUR BIKES -

HERE’S MY 2007 Su­per Duke 990. I bought it in 2010 when it was still orig­i­nal, and over the years I’ve added a few bits... and taken some oth­ers off.

I started with an Evotech tail tidy, took the cat out of the orig­i­nal ex­haust, and re­placed the air­box with a Moto Hooli­gan item, which boosted the midrange nicely. The han­dle­bars were swapped for a set of Du­cati Mon­ster 796 bars, which are lower then the orig­i­nals. I also put on a set of Ren­thal grips and CRG Ar­row mir­rors. Then I bought a set of FMF Apex si­lencers and had it mapped on a dyno. The bel­ly­pan is made by Chimera Graph­ics. Re­cently I’ve swapped the chain and sprock­ets for a 520 set, and I have some UK-made Dy­namic Pre­ci­sion rearsets wait­ing to go on.

Neem’s 990 has un­der­gone an ex­ten­sive mod­ding regime
