    If you just want to hide the evidence this works ok.

    Don't know how it would go in a medium/high speed tar slide but worked well for the few low speed naps my bike has had.

    A question for long term owners of 1190's - a couple of the screws that hold air box lid tight, are starting to strip out the thread. Is there a good solution to fixing the problem? I have always been careful tightening these screws, however after 4 years there is wear and tear in the plastic and I think it won't be long before more of them start to strip out. Bigger diameter screws? Anyone tried studs ? Thanks in advance.

    sticky buttons

    anyone got the up/down buttons on the lefthand switch block getting a bit sticky? if not pushed exactly square on, one of mine stays pushed, causing the menu to continuously scroll thru the different screens.

    just wondering if theres an easy fix before i pull it to bits?

    cheers

    @wairau I always spray mine with WD40 after I wash the bike and never had a problem in 38K klms with my 1190 and I do the same with the 1090.

    If it is only one or two screws, a bit off a smallish cable tie in the hole while you screw the screw in will bring it up as tight as new.

    That looks good. What exactly is that stuff? I will probably install a bracket with a female thread to accommodate an oggy knob. Still internet surfing for solutions. Must say that this bar saved thousands. Hate to replace that plastic tank. Headlight assembly too. Again, that tubing would overcome the cosmetic damage somewhat, so what is it?

    I have seen photos of rescue tow rope wrapped around the crash bars. That would have helped. Just a thought. Anyway, thanks for your feedback.

    If you dont want to buy the rotti setup

    I stripped the thread on one air box screw , i used a cable tie and then replaced the screw it then works fine as the extra thickness of the tie lets the screw bite into it , just cut teh cable tie each time you clean the filter and replace.

    I don't like your chances, those sorts of things always seem to want to bend the wrong way but break being set the right way.

    The 1X90 foot peg mounts are reversible which will raise the peg but you might get the orientation you're looking for.

    This is one of those occasions where it's best if you're the guinea pig. Let us know the results.

    Hi to all adventure riders,

    Looking at buying a 1090R and would appreciate any feedback on this particular bike.

    My plan for this bike will be to add some fruit I.e exhaust, giant loop bags side and tank, GPS unit, Bash plate,heated grips and a good set of spotlights.

    Type of riding well that goes without saying Adventure stuff.

    Thanks in advance all.
