Pro Shift Kit
(the microbearing detent arm and F-Pro shift spring kit)
Virtually eliminate missed shifts and false neutrals. Quicker shifts.
The 1090, like the 690, has lazy shift action. Not what you want when Super Motard racing or jumping those doubles or splitting that lane.
Factory Pro's opinion is that if you nudge the bike out of one gear, it ought to go into the next gear.
The stock shifting can be sketchy under even recreational use.
Some individual bikes, more than others, have a propensity for false neutrals and missed shifts in critical situations.
Changing the oil can make, maybe a 10% difference and perhaps moving the lever up or down can make a 10% difference - and this shift kit is a stunning 100% difference.
In other words, use any old oil and have your lever set almost anywhere realistic and it will still shift well.
Virtually eliminate missed shifts and false neutrals.
Installation: About 1-2 hours - no case splitting required. The clutch basket has to be removed to install the arm and spring.
Available with Hybrid Ceramic Microbearing

Fuel injection tuning
The ktms are variable - an occasional few run fairly smoothly and some (most) surge a bit and many are super abrupt on the on / off / barely on throttle operation - kind of like what you don't want on a big, strong, torquey bike.
Many bikes are just not
enjoyable to ride on a trail. The fuel injection tuning is one of the
few faults of the bike.
Proper tuning fuel, ignition, crossover tables, device activation tables will smooth out the lowend and improve power delivery linearity to make the bike sweet and nice to ride. (and 'oh darn", will make more peak hp, too :-)
Wheelsmith / Factory uses the EC997 dyno - with Realtime HP and torque readout and a 5 gas Exhaust Analyzer - and that's why results are likely to be better than a dealership level dyno that only "tunes to an air-fuel ratio" (as if there is some magic afr).
I've heard reports in MotorcycleUSA.com that
common dealership level dynos
can take "120 dyno runs to tune" a KTM. That's abusive to your bike. It's fine
for a magazine test bike, but not yours.
Wheelsmith has been tuning KTM twins since the first 950's came out - in fact, the 950 jetting kit that Factory Pro / Wheelsmith developed is the best performing 950 jet kit available to this very day.
Wheelsmith (Factory Pro's R&D division) is available to tune your 990 - be it TuneECU, Tuneboy or a simple power commander.
Note: A power commander is limited in what it can adjust and can't tune for maximum smoothness as well as TuneECU or Tuneboy.
We suggest TuneECU at this time - it's reflashing the
stock ECU with custom mapping and tuning -

lowend and part throttle on/off is night and day smoother
I once had a ktm 990 that was stubbornly overrich at about 1% throttle.
Not .5% and not 2% - just at 1%.
I tried the IAP table. I tried the TPS table. I tried changing the FL table without results.
After the customer checked and reset sensors, it was still bad at 1% throttle.
Turned out to be the crankcase vent check valve.

The extension of the laboratory
for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed
in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940).
He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after
the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar
to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal
use but well preserved.
