Threads a bit quiet these days Marc
I bought a Husky 701 and have been kitting that out , wallet is seriously hurting now but what the heck. Liking the lighter bike for overnighters and short rides
Still got the 1190R and planning a round OZ trip with her within the next couple of years as she is a good long range bike.
Are you going to keep your 1190R ? You put in heaps of time and effort to get her right !
Havent owned the 1190 for a while now.
Decided to go a bit smaller and lighter but still does the long haul, so built this instead
Sweet ride , very nice
Just messing with you fella, I didn't even consider the 1290, just too much . Oh and I have owned an 1100GS from new, did 76K on it, nice bike on the road but I'm the sort who sees a rough track and has too take it and found the suspension not up to my needs so went to the 950 and now 1090.
Bugger, I bought one of the $19,900 '16 1290 SA's.. and the VIN is listed... Maybe I'll have to wait another few days or so before I can pick it up..
Mine was on the list too. I think they all are. I just took my tank in for the dealer to inspect. All good with nothing required.
From what they told me, if there was a problem, it is a kit with a new brass insert and adhesive for the fitting at the rear of the tank on top.
$20K for your new bike is a steal. They are fantastic. Enjoy!
Remember this bloke, well some bad news Debbie passed away 3 months ago after a short fight with cancer.
Now he is entering the KTM Rally here is Tas and needs a GPS so I will be installing mine on his bike this weekend.
As you probably know my 690 has spare connectors behind the headlight (easy peasy), is there such thing on a 1090.
I am after switched connection other ways the old bastard will forget to turn it off and drain the battery.
Could someone point me in the easiest way to find switched wires please.
Cheers Steve, they checked and all was good.. 20K for a 'brand new' 2016 1290 SA is a good deal.. Once I found about it I bought one over the 18 model which I could have gotten for 25K.
I had a 530 for a while, bought it new from the old Cessnock KTM.. Good bike...
AZ2works , I have the 1190R and there are power connectors in the rear ducktail in front of the stop light acc 1 and 2 I think they should be the same as the 1090 but maybe a 1090 owner can chime in
The acc1 and acc2 plugs are at both the front and rear on the 1090. I'm using the unswitched connections and from memory the switched ones have a very low current rating. Depending on your current draw, you can use the switched power to drive a relay to switch the non switched power.
I used the switched power (1amp) for my Garmin Montana, keeps it charged fine.
Thanks for the help fellas
Jeez that's sad news !
Yes Geoff, it all happened so fast.
Doctors said 12 months, she was gone in just a few months.
That's why I don't wait for no one, I spend my money and time the best I can.
I am 53 and time doesn't wait.
Like I was saying to someone over in the Thumper forum that was waiting for the next factory cheap interest rate because he didn't want to spend his own money, he couldn't see that he was going to have to pay for it sooner or later so I said to him that "cemeteries are full of reach people that were saving for one day"
That looks great.
What more can you ask for?
150 horsepower and mud.
Gents any feedback on the 1290 super adv r model (2018) from current oz owners?,nice solid/reliable bike?
