    Got the brainfart to do a list of all I did to my 790R, so why not make it public.
    Will keep my "Umm... just a few bucks" list together and help if something has to be replaced.
    Might update from time to time.

    [sarcasm]For sure I'm totally NOT interested in your list, might get tempted to spend even more bucks.[/sarcasm]
    So feel free to try me...

    I'll start of with some pics and what I did from front to rear, what's still to get and what... well, maybe.

    You got a good bike going on. The best bang for buck ( like the germany brothels eh, bus loads of Austrians over the border every night)
    Sorry kinky went off again.:viking

    The best bang for buck. 15T front, cheap, do it yourself if you have a rattlegun and torque wench and adjust the chain back.

    Next consider a ATZ-10 battery or other brand, that 2.5kg gone from next to your balls ( easy kinky) makes a huge difference in feel when you toss into a corner ( Im talking dirt) even feels better just pushing it around the shed.

    And this is why I dont let kinky do forums, except pornhub. He has his own channel.

    @Kinkysmurf Thanks for the reminder on the battery, totally forgot about that heavy bit...
    15T might happen sooner than later, just no high need here, I don't go slow very much ;)
    I'll add the battery and the TCM head straight for now.

    C'mon mates, ignore the price tags to prevent excessive madness (you or your wifey :linzi) and show your list.
    I'd like to get some more ideas of what to change or add over the winter time.

    Just as an thought, I already have 15T front but decided to go 48T rear instead to keep front tight in case chain snaps.

    Or to be honest I'm not going that fast (my philosophy: if you dare to go over 90km/h you're on too big road) so I might even go 15+48 but then I look to add some material on front sprocket guard to keep it tight.

    And the one you could add is: https://www.vanaschemotorsports.com/store/p82/790_Billet_Case_Saver.html

    @ramirin Thx, that billet case saver looks dope and makes sense.
    By "not going slow" I mean those really tight first gear clutch slipping slow things,
    as long as I'm not forced to go below 20 km/h I'm fine with switching gears.

    Yes the Vanasche looks like it would do its job, the OEM plastic will do very little I think. The chain is chewing out inside of the cover with the 16T OEM damper sprocket. Since removing the plastic cover, chain guard and mounting a UNdamper sprocket the horrible chain chatter on a rocky downhill is gone.

    Chain failure is very rare with with basic maintenance, especially now with rivet link chains standard. Stops guys F,kn around with circlips when they have little experience.

    90km is a bit slow for here, we have big wide deserts to cross, and 170km is my top speed, The knobs wont take much more.

    Edit. For anyone interested KTM have a upgrade to fix the countershaft leaks.
    I think its only on warranties not a recall, The fix is a Steel Nut to replace the Alloy nut. Torque can then be increased to 120N from 100N.

    This puts more pressure on the o-ring.

    I also saw in Repair manual ( checking Newtons) that the Plastic cover is a wear item like the sliders.

    Sorry Ace I went off topic a bit.

    I've come suspicious with chain as my 690 snapped chain with only 2000kms or so .. there were many of similar cases back then, something wrong with the chain. I was lucky and it just dropped on ground in front of my garage.

    I used to ride fast. With 990 gauge was 180km/h and rpm going still up as it started to lose traction on gravel against wind force. I realized my luck is going to end at some point and removed windshield, that dropped to max 140km/h -> wen't to 690 bouncing on knobbies max 120km/h..

    Of course I sometimes ride faster but try to find roads where I can have fun riding slower. The one thing I don't understand is the people who look for curvy roads and then cut corners.

    I would love to try those deserts, we mostly have narrow curvy trails and wide straight roads.

    And some bastards dont even send a sticker.
    Shout out to Wings for including a T Shirt, only one.
    I don't do stickers. But do like Alongat's Tripleclampmoto grapic art.

    @Kinkysmurf thanks for the heads up!
    Had mine looked at, at first service and all good but a couple of hundred Kms later I see the tell tale dribble again (I know that feeling)... Happen to have a P/No for the steel CS Nut?... :thumb

    Has the steel nut replaced the alloy nut? (I havent looked yet)
    All the 9XX and 1X90 had steel.

    If you go in for warranty with a leak, you get the new nut ( I was told by KTM)
    If its not leaking, dont worry. Your not missing out. Im trying to leave this alone here, because its ACE's thread.

    My 790R is pretty basic but the farkle/mods still adds up quickly it seems. Luckily I had a lot of this stuff on the shelf already from other bikes so the shell shock was reduced a fair amount deal.
