    KTM 390 Duke Mods?

    Hi guys, new to the forum so hello to everyone!

    Ive got a KTM 390 Duke which Ive had for a few years now and just wondering if anyone has made any modifications to theirs or added parts - and how its worked for you?

    Has anyone had their suspension adjusted? I'm 85kg+ and I feel like it could easily be set a bit harder but I dont want to get it changed and find its not right?

    Thanks

    Rather interested if anyone has put the larger seat on to allow for a taller rider too?

    If it's an older duke a quick action throttle is a must. Aftermarked air filter is also a cheap improvement. After market pegs are a good idea too as the first thing to touch down on these are the pegs.

    A lot of people get power commanders, frenchie has one, he might be able to fill you in on some of the mods he has.

    Everything else is a bit of a waste as far as I am concerned, because if you are riding harder than that maybe save the money for a more suitable bike.

    Don't have a Duke but the RC390 changed from fun to awesome, in the handling dept, after changing springs/fluid in the forks & shock.

    Not quite a duke but I have an RC390 with a powercommander, open air box, k&n airfilter and an andreani cartridge kit.

    Powercommander was a must have for me. Sorted out the terrible stock fueling. Filled the midrange out really nicely.

    On my duke I've done a few things, mostly styling which I'll skip. Happy to post about that if you want.

    As for running gear I have taken the snorkel off the airbox and fitted a DNA air filter. I swapped my stock exhaust for one that's been cut open and gutted. It has a powertronic piggyback ecu and been tuned on a dyno.

    Also gone down -1 front sprocket to 14T for more pep around town. It was hard to find, sourced it from Germany.

    Still on my list is to work on the suspension as it is a bit soggy for a spirited ride/track use (and I'm 6'2" and 90kg), I also want to put adjustable rear sets and the taller seat on.

    Better of putting that money toward a Brembo MC.
