Hello group & Happy New Year.

This final post brings you upto date with my efforts to find a new radiator.

In the end i was never able to find a new radiator for my 950SE.
The original was repaired & repainted and made to look new,so far all good.
Although i am considering swapping the temp sender fan switch for one that activates the fan slightly earler, as the bike gets Hot during normal riding.

The confusion at KTM seems to be a problem with the Radiator been show as out of stock,when actually it a discontinued part.

About 3 months ago i was told that WP who manufacture all the common KTM radiators were looking into the problem, with a view to maybe restart production, and again carry stock of #63035010000 950R SE Radiators.

But this is not to be, after much corespondents i was told the part is no longer available.

There's also a thread on this on advrider that I'm on but to post here as well, this radiator is in fact out of production from KTM - unless we can get direct access to WP or an aftermarket manufacturer who has or can make curved radiator cores, this is goi g to remain a challenge. I can say however that there are alternatives provided you're prepared to get creative - the 950SM, 950SMR, 990SM, 990SMR and 990SMT use the same radiator sans a few minor differences in the 990 versions; those will bolt right on but will require creative fastening of the SE's plastic radiator guard / grill as they don't have the small tabs with the holes for the guard. This is easily remedied by using small zip-ties from the radiator guard to the mounting tabs at the top and bottom or ditch the stock plastic guard and switch to a metal mesh grill. I found a 990SMR radiator (used) in the US for a friend's 950SE and it bolts right on. Keep in mind however that the 990radiators should stay in circulation for a bit still as that bike was sold until and through 2013 in most of KTM's markets but the price has increased; almost doubled so keep your eyes out for used ones on evil-bay, etc.

I can confirm that it is very easy to fit the se rad guard to the sm rad ......... it just needs a few cable ties / zip ties.

Big Thank you to Alon from Canada.

Their is an alternative radiator for the KTM 950R SE

Shipdamite also confirmed these do fit almost perfect except the plastic trim mesh which will need to be jerry rigged with zip ties.

The KTM 950SM
950SMR
990SM
990SMR
and 990SMT

will fit your Superenduo.


I was never sure, as i knew the engine oil tank is different on Supermoto & Superduke and Superenduro models.

Thanks for the info Alon.
Keep us up to date on the other blog.

Kind regards

The only tangible differences between the oil tanks of the Superduke, SM/SMR/SMT and the SE are:
1- SE tank is shaped to accommodate an exhaust header that exits horizontally to the right side of the engine. The SE tank also incorporates a round sight glass
2- SM/SMR/SMT tank is shaped to allow the fro t exhaust header to exit the engine and swing underneath the oil tank toward the back of the bike. It also incorporates a long vertical sight glass
3- the Superduke tank is similar to the SM/SMR/SMT but it has some differences as there is a front cast subframe to accommodate the battery and related electrics

The biggest issue with an aftermarket source for a replacement tank as we know is a lack of aftermarket manufacturers who can produce or source a curved radiator core. I've been looking at ways of circumventing this challenge. We certainly can't run a flat core radiator as the front tire will collide...I can't find anyone who can make or get a curved core so second best may actually be combining three smaller width cores together to form a "curve" - I may be able to devise an approach that accomplishes this with three radiator cores from KTM small bikes (530exc as an example). I found a source for these cores for about $30 CAD (roughly 20 Gbp) per core and then of course, I need to find someone who would join them and add the end tanks and radiator cap neck. I'll bet that this could be done for under $250 all in (about 165 Gbp) and when I've done a rough calculation, we would gain close to 20% of surface area which is one of two factors in a radiator's efficiency. With that said, Im not able to calculate the volume compared to the stock radiator but if I take this any further, I'll figure that out eventually before committing to manufacturing this. In the meantime, I say let's stick to finding used ones here and there until there's a viable alternative. Hope this helps...

Side by side the Old SE radiator and a SMR radiator.
