    Working on it using a Givi Airflow front screen along with some cheap Ebay spoiler and its much better than original short screen. Experimenting tilting it using spacers on top.

    Next I´m gonna try exchanging the original for a wider screen ( I have one from the Super Tenere I used to have) and then the Givi Airflow on in front of that , there is still some air that hit my shoulders because the original is to narrow, especially at the bottom.

    Brought her home last night. @Perun moto rack and subrack looks nice and works well with Rockstraps.

    The GL Fandango tank bag matches really well but is pretty dirty. I guess that's to be expected since it's seen a few places riding with @rtwpaul.


    Next I'll remove the passenger pegs, then who knows, but there will always be something...

    Nice man. I have had my eye on the GL Diablo Pro for some time. Just something big enough for the usual crap + my Nikon 7000.

    Nice!
    I want one of those Perun racks for mine.
    KTMTwins sell them - but they’re all out of the black, and the fkrs just went and raised the price!
    I won’t order a thing from them now, just on principle!

    Good choice. :D

    We just sent one batch of 790/1X90 racks to KTM Twins. We should send it earlier, but we are a bit behind the schedule. :/

    We also sell directly and ship worldwide, using DHL Express.

    Has anyone fit any bar risers yet? I'm trying to figure out what the maximum size I could put on without stretching the cables too tight. Being 6ft 3 has its disadvantages sometimes.

    I put on last week BRP risers ( 1 1/4 ) , it’s as far as I’d want the cables stretched.

    Perun received my sub plate Friday here in Florida. Perfect fit.

    Have you thought about lower foot pegs to reduce the needed height of added risers? I finally went that route and, for me, it is much better. Getting risers high enough to stand comfortably made it impossible to get enough weight on the front wheel on tight single track.

    Bar risers diminish control...I am 6'3" and ordered Lower bend bars today to compensate for the height added by the Scott's damper....lower footpegs will work great...

    I'm surprised to not see more aftermarket stuff for the "GPS Mount" slot yet.

    Lurking Vendors - I'd like to see a dual RAM Ball with the balls side by side so that I could have one arm sticking out to the left for my GoPro and another arm holding my gps (a cell phone in a ram claw).

    It's obviously late on a Monday, as I'm laughing my ass off at that for no good reason.

    Don't they have a generic 2-ball RAM mount? I could've sworn I saw one, possibly at Rock Creek, that was basically a horizontal member of some sort that fit onto a RAM ball in the middle but also had sockets at each end -- a "double dogbone" of sorts.

    If I am remembering that correctly, you'd only need the middle RAM ball.
