    I’m trying to figure out what to with deposits on 2 of them. My mod list is waaaaay too long and expensive. About 40 items long! I haven’t been this excited about a new bike in a long time. Since I put gobs of dough into my SE then the 1190r. It’s an addiction. Better and cheaper than hookers and blow, tho. HW.

    While the 790 R needs ALOT of mods, I'd be interested to see your list re the Rally. Care to share?

    Yes.
    My brainstorming list. Wrote it out quick. I’m sure I won’t do all this but I like my list. There’s no order to my list. Thoughts? Brand changes? Things I forgot?
    Stupid stuff on my list?

    Case saver. Vanasche.
    Shark fin. Scott’s.
    Brake lever. KTM.
    Clutch lever. KTM.
    Crap flap. Flatland.
    Rad guard. Flatland.
    Extra set oem plastics.
    Extra set oem graphics.
    Headlight protector. KTM.
    Ignition cover protector. KTM.
    Clutch cover protector KTM.
    Heated grips. KTM.
    Controller for grips. KTM. Does Rally come with this?
    Panel mount USB plug.
    Panel mount Powerlet.
    Panel mount cigarette outlet. May not need.
    Battery. Antigravity restart.
    LED spots. With yellow covers. BDCW.
    Rear rack. BDCW. So remove passenger grab handles.
    Remove passenger pegs. Remove Mounts if possible. Not sure of mounting mechanism on Rally.
    Skid plate. BDCW.
    Renthal RC high bar.
    Rox or KTM risers.
    (Note: I stand all the time unpaved. Due to my age, infirmities, afflictions, mental instability- I need to be able to achieve Meerkat Rest Scan Stance
    (MRSS) when not in standing attack positions. So high bars, high risers, etc. My SE has approximately 5” of rise.)
    So I’ll probably need longer cables. Custom most likely.
    Dongle? KTM. Needed?
    15T damped countersprocket. Most likely. End up doing on all KTM’s.
    Remove all emissions. Rottweiler kits.
    PC V and Dyno Tune. With Nels at 2wheeldynoworks.
    Arrow mid pipe. Rottweiler.
    Welded side stand foot. A steel washer.
    Side stand kill switch removal. KTM.
    Thermostat switch upgrade. KTM.
    Headlight and taillight modulators. Kisan. If they have technology. No response from Andy yet.
    Air box. Rottweiler. When available.
    Scott’s damper, BRP rubber mounted submount. Slavens.
    Chain guide. BRP.
    Powder coat black. Pegs. Crap flap. Rad guard. Whatever else I think of once bike arrives.

    Crrrraaaaazzzzzy long list. Toldja. Lots of Dough. Seems like a worthy investment. My enjoyment ROI is immense. You Only Live Twice. Another note. 690 may be sold. Lost all kinda $$$. Oh well. It’ll pay for a third of Rally. Not counting this monster list. Another note. I’ll be riding my 1190r and SE while I pay my dealer in Tucson to install all this stuff. I’m retired. Just want to ride. This list and labor costs to install could buy HW another new KTM of some persuasion. But what a Machine it’ll be!!! Rally On!! I have deposits on 2 Rally’s. TX and WA. I only want one. Thoughts? HW.

    HW in MRSS on SE. It’s been mentioned by several inmates on Advrider that the Rally could be SE like. I really hope so!
    It seems it’d be impossible to top my SE. We shall see. HW. B5C40AF4-8218-4785-92DE-476A00EA2E1C.png 92F41254-715D-4EA1-90AB-911F769BF6D4.png

    Never used risers before, minus the little bit a sub mount moves them up, even at 6’ 2”. Not little bikes or big bikes. Is the 790 that different? I’m anti risers.

    The Rally might be the closest thing now to the SE, but the 2022 890 SE will be closer to the original SE for sure. It will be released right after you sink $10k more into your Rally.

    There won't be another SE due to regulations like euro 4 and other requirements like abs etc.. Also people are already bitching about R being too tall while it's like 10cm lower than SE

    Only thing missing on the Rally was the correct rear rim as I understood. There was a reason it was hidden in the hotel. Since it limited they did not show it for the mass.
