    All that extra weight, next you’ll be putting reflectors on your bike and reinstalling your chain guard. It’s like I don’t know you anymore, @Nowwhat.

    So, buttons, reflectors, chain guard, what else are you spending you savings on? Cup holder? A bunch of touratech gear?

    Not really a crash so to speak. But twice fallen over at low to no speed. No flex in this system.

    The entire crash bar and skid plate system is all tied together so it is really tough. But a crash at speed is another thing.

    I've got one as well, I think it works best if you have a tablet/phone you can dedicate to it. I've been trying to use my every day carry phone with Drive Mode Dashboard, with mixed success.

    last night I had the 890AR seat off in the driveway as I was trying to fit a plug kit and compressor under there and we had an emergency and I had to go see someone and did not get back until 5 hours later. The bike and ground were wet from rain and I have no idea how much. All oem...do the little air intakes have a low point drain if a little water gets in there?

    Won't hurt anything. I pressure wash mine with the seat off. Any water that gets in the back/dirty side of the airbox just drains to ground.

    Just wondering, has anyone done a dyno comparison for the 790 (to an otherwise stock bike), with stock intake /snorkels vs Rotty power plate vs full Rottweiler airbox?
