I used to own a 950. With an 1190, you'll cook off a rear TKC in no time.

I just receive mine today!. Could you please told me where do I put the foam stickers? Do I need to cut them?
the foam goes between the radiator and the plastic protector on both side, below the bolds. I cut it as x the istuctions but is not neccessary.

Regarding the rear tire mine lasted 8000 km

By chance any of you guys hear something about Touratech parts for the 1990???

First a couple of months ago I ordered the Touratech raisers (2,5cm) and I received them after a week, they are nice and the bike is more cofortable. Then I ordered the seat and after 2 months of waiting I cancelled the order becouse they did not know when it was going into production, therefore I bought the confort seat from ktm powerpart, much better then the original for logn rides...

+1 to that. I'm currently riding in 30 degree heat here in England and, yes, it's a little warm under the thighs, but no more so than my previous bikes would have been - VFR1200, FJR1300, ST1100, Aprilia RSV...

Stick yer knees out and it's fine.

Tall Screen

I'm 188cm and the normal screen on the non-R bike is a bit too low for me, but I'm holding out a bit till more info is available - have bought too many screens that did not work in the past
I fitted the taller screen to my Std (non-R) 1190. It's about 2" or 4.5cm taller, but more importantly it's wider at the top by several centimetres. It's also smoke tinted, which doen't really show in the accessories brochure, but a pleasant surprise.

I'm 183 cm - 6'1" in old money - and with the seat on the lower setting it reduces buffeting considerably. I still have a bit of noise, but no more so than on my VFR1200. I am managing to still get some wind to the vents on my jacket, so win-win all round.

If you are that tall (188cm) you might want to consider the R short screen. It's 138mm shorter than the std one. That way the wind won't buffet your head as it will hit your chest instead.

no, it's the confort heated seat in 2 pices from the powerparts. It's much thicker then the standard, aprox 2 cm (also of the standard bike) and protects much better from the heat of the engine.
The only issue with the R is that it becomes really tall, but I'm fine with it.

Hi Igorpetrovich,

Could you please post a photo of the seat?
I'm thinking on buy that one as well!.

I receive a week ago the side carrier from H&B.. I'm waiting for the Glovescout panniers.

Also a photo of the raiser will be nice!.

I'm organizing a tip to Colombia for next year in July. Living from Vancouver if any of you guys are interested! Will be "epic"

thanks for the reply - I'm just concerned that the short screen will be quite tiring on long high speed rides - I will sit on my hands for a while longer or maybe try the KTM tall screen.....

I'm 6'2" and found the std model screen very bad for buffeting on a test ride.

I bought an R and the buffeting is almost non-existent.

Got the heated grips fitted yesterday and they are good. Not as hot as Oxfords but seemed to work well across the 3 heat settings.

I set the top favorite to Heated Grips then all I have to do is push the set button 3 times and I'm straight into the heated grips selection without having to look at the dash.
