you bloody legend! Thanks!!!
I have, out at wombat there's clay everywhere, but i guess I have just been lucky..
I understand your point,
I have always had the quietest bike out of everyone, running standard exhausts.. So personally, for once I'd like a nice sounding pipe that's 'a bit' louder and lower throbbing sound than standard..
I think the reason why akro are making pipes quieter than their previous models is so they meet regulations in all countries, that is also why they make the baffles so hard to come out as they need to be deemed 'permanent' in the ADR rules.
its not as loud as you think the wings but damn sounds good.. im putting my name down for one today :)
Try Hepco Becker, local distributor in Dayboro QLD. Very good price normally.
Update: Here you go!
They do look a little 'high' though.
You could also contact Dalby Moto and see if they have anything in the works.

Any word on the carbon fibre stuff?
Below is an outtake from the B&B website. 5mm should do the job!!
B & B Off Roads Ktm 1190 Bash plate is made from 5mm thick 5083 structural alloy plate. Rear mounts are 5mm stainless steel with a rearward facing lug that rests on the rear frame rail to prevent rotation of the bracket. There are 6 32mm hole in the underside to help flush debris and minimise noise. There is also a rubber damper glued inside to help reduce noise. If so desired b & b off road can supply the bash plate with motofoam to further reduce noise and mud build up. Bash plate can be fitted with or without genuine crash bars. All necessary mounting hardware for this is supplied.
Hi Burren Rider,
Looking at the Touratech site it looks like they only make a riser for the Standard, not the R??
Woops you obviously worked this out on a later post....
Thanks for that. yeah they do look very high.. I wonder why that is..
Not ideal for serious off road traveling.
Any pillion would need to be seriously skinny.....
they are narrower though by being placed above the exhaust?
A few 1190's in Australia are having big issues with dust getting past the stock paper filter. With a decent ride coming up where I knew there were going to be plenty of bikes and dry powdery conditions, I was starting to get paranoid so I contacted Uni Filter to see how progress was going on their filter kit. They were incredibly good to deal with and managed to get me a pre-production version air freighted in time for the ride.
The kit consists of:
1) Some coarse pre-filters for the intake snorkels
2) A foam gasket for the airbox lid (which seems to be the source of the problem)
3) A decent two stage foam filter (all oiled for maximum dust retention).
I really can't see any dust getting past this setup and the added advantage is that the paper filter won't be around to get wet and dissolve.
I have no affiliation with Uni (apart from using their filters over the past 20 years) but I was amazed at the lengths they went to work out a solution and get it to me in time for the ride. That kind of service is pretty rare these days so no doubt I will be safely using them for another 20 years.
Impressive service from unifilter! Got a pic of how the stock filter looks like when mounted? (just curious)
Any idea when they will be in production?
I took some pictures of my friends bike to Finnish forum: http://www.matkaendurot.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=20831&start=390
7000km, airbox first time open.
That's very concerning. :/
The UNI filter looks like the part!
People are reporting the same findings in the south African forum
Is it my imagination, or looking at BR's most recent post have they narrowed the frame down compared to the 9X0?
It looks all slim, slinky, and great for knee gripping.
P.S. Love the Unifilter sticker placement!
burrenrider: do you think they would be able to do a few more pre prod filters? and what were they worth? about $100?
if not, did they give a lead time on prod availability?
