    And even worse (impossible actually), try to get "tha wife" to understand the importance of all the gizmos you have to buy to keep the bike "safe and running". Everything else is easypezy...

    Fitted the Rottweiler air filter along with removing SAS and O2 sensors. Also fitted the KTM engine guard.

    +1 on adding the orange KTM logo.

    I have been playing with an easier to service air filter for the big pig lately, especially since I will be doing the entire Trans-America this August. I have been using this for a while and it's been heavily tested and works fanatic, just ask Windblown ; ). I use the updated Uni filter in the stock airbox with the wedge, removed the ram air ducts and then place a 3/8" prefilter element infront of the airbox. Once the prefilter element is muddy or in need of service simply reach in and yank it out, clean, oil and shove it back in. The Uni filter stays in perfect shape. If I have really buried the bike in mud you can even fetch out the prefilter element of the two piece Uni filter, through the holes in the airbox for the ram air, and clean that as well. It is awesome knowing I do not need to pull the tank and airbox apart just to service the air filter. Good times! Pictures from my last service. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Top of my shorty boots kept getting hung up on the rear peg mount when standing so I ground them down. pas footpeg 2.jpg

    Took the rubber pads off the pegs for that smidgeon more leg room and to make it easier to keep my feet on them.

    Experimented with different ducting etc., to make the windshield noise/buffet better. Finally took the stock shield off altogether and made a small narrow shield about 6" high. You know when you stand up to get smooth air? It's like that now.

    I purchased my 1290SA almost 3 weeks ago without a test ride. Today it was delivered at 16:15 or so. I then spent time installing the powerparts radiator guard, it took longer than I expected it to. It was dark when I finished and I said to myself there is no way in hell that I am going to wait until daylight. Fired it up and off I went for a nice 25 mile joy ride through Chicago suburbia. Installed the AltRider kickstand foot when I returned. Love this bike, without question.

    Painted my new alu top box. This time I used Plasti Skin, and the finish is better than with Plasti Dip I think:

    Seriously. This bike is becoming less and less of an "adv" bike every time I need to do something on it. If I wasn't riding two up I wouldn't have a bike like this

    After a bit of discussion here about radiators and topping up difficulties, I was then reminded about the radiator hose that Adam Riemann holds up with a patch on it in the 1290 SAR 1090 R in Morocco Video.
    So I had a closer look at my own bike, paying attention to the lower right radiator hose.
    It lays against the crash bar mount, even though there was no damage it did have a slight rub mark on the hose.
    It might never be an issue but to err on the side of prevention is better than a cure, I got some old bicycle tube and made a barrier to hopefully avoid any issues in the future.

    Installed cruise control. Really just a throttle lock but better than nothing. cruz 2.jpg cruz3.jpg cruz1.jpg
