    Set the sag. When I picked up my bike and rode it home, I checked the sag on the front and only had one inch total. About the same on the rear. Set it right and now it is noticeably lower.

    I have about 35mm in the rear. Have not checked the front yet.

    I haven't measured, but i've backed the preload all the way off and it is still just a little on the tall side. Hopefully once it breaks in a bit and I get luggage, skid plate, etc it will be just right.

    Which aux. light mounts are those? I prefer them up higher like that verses down low like mine are on the bars.

    The only higher mounts I could find were sw-motech but they are not in stock anywhere. For a simple stamped part being out of stck makes me wonder how bright they are.

    They are the KTM optional lights listed for the 1190. Had the dealer install them.

    Rode it 200 mi. home and 100 mi. of dirt yesterday. It's everything they say and more I couldn't be happier.

    On a side note. Be careful ordering aftermarket accesorries. I got some Touratech parts that don't fit do to changes in the 2014 model. I have not seen it mentioned anywhere but the info screen on the 14's is significantly bigger. A change for the better I'm sure but now my cool orange $80.00 GPS mount will not fit. also the side stand foot plate all the euro's complained about has been enlarged and the trick touratech plate is not needed and wont fit. Also the foot brake toe grate seems to have been enlarged so that an aftermarket is not needed.

    Any 2013 owners want some cool stuff cheep?

    Hi

    how do you find the brightness and range or the Aux lights?
    worth the 500$ ?
    what kind of light is it? LED? Halogen ?

    thanks

    Only have about $250.00 in the lights. Have not had time to aim them yet. My first ride with them this morning was not dramatically better, may need to aim them a little higher? Won't know till I play around with them. They did extend the range of the stock light which totally is inadequate for where I live out in the county. Got them from ADVMonster Model 50.

    They are LED's.

    I ordered the side stand foot for my 1190R, when I called Touratech USA they apologized and offered to email me a UPS return label, which I accepted. I would be anxious to hear if the GPS mount works, so experiment and report back.

    The Touratech GPS mounts perfectly . You have to remove the 3 screws and washers and replace with the longer screws and different washers along with the 3 plastic spacers .It goes under the guagesnot on top. I have a 2014. I am using the Garmin Monterra with the Touratech lockable mount. Very close to the shield with little adjustment. :deal

    I like em. I guess they are halogen. They are a bright white but don't seem to range out past the stock high beam. What I like is the lenze is convex and gives a true 190 degree beam. Almost like having a cornering light. I got a deal on em so price is up to you. They seem to be high quality units.
