    Nice! I assume you made the rear flap yourself? I assume it’s mostly to keep crap off the bottom of the shock, but it brought something else to mind. With the cat gone, the long extended rear of my skid plate could act like a giant shelf to accumulate dirt and rocks when riding. I haven’t deleted my cat yet, but was thinking about gluing a big piece of closed cell foam on it when I do.

    Yes, I made up the Crapflap™ Rear yesterday, In the terrain I usually ride (Wet and muddy) It just packs up in there and is a b1tch to get out.
    I've been looking at making the hole left by the cat a storage compartment for tools I seldom use but always want with me.
    + Low placement
    + Protected
    + Otherwise not used
    - Hard to access.
    I'll see what I can come up with.

    Also on the Sharon point.
    Measured at 45 degrees and 1M from Exhaust around 80dB at ide to low throttle.
    Peaks around 103 dB.
    Used a phone so not very scientific, but it's something.

    Could you have extended the flap over the swingarm and brakeline to the right. Mud really packs up there.

    First mod for the 790
    Edit. Fitted @braaap! made crap flap first......

    +20 Power/Hard parts seat

    Feels much better than stock (I'm 189cm/6'2"ish) after a short ride.

    Got a 4-day ride (off-road) at end of this week, hopefully still feels comfortable after several hours in saddle.

    Getting cruise control fitted tmoz - too easy to speed and living in a nanny state, it is a cheap way of keeping legal speed.

    Find myself constantly looking down to keep constant speed.
    Police here in Vic Oz will book you for 5kmh over limit.

    Yes is easy, except for the front power button, you need to remove the headlight and remove the plastic piece and drill it, then install the button.

    The rear seat have the power button in the side of the seat, its come ready.

    The instructions in the website say that the heating function need to be activated whit de ktm diagnostic tool, but in my case it was plug and play.

    Here is the manual: https://redirect.viglink.com/?forma.../street/ergo-seat3/63507940000/dok_pp_bed.pdf

    Boltons had it in stock.
    I'm pretty sure they had the colored high seat in stock too.

    For those who are aware of and have been following the headlight mount post failures...we have made very good progress on our reinforcement kit (HeadStraight as we call it) and we will definitely have them available before Christmas pending final testing in the coming weeks.

    +20 high Alfons

    All black would make more sense, but I sorta like the orange top panel on my seat.

    I used Photoshop and a 790R as a base, then played around with those parts:

    - 790 Adv S side trim panels 63508042000AB / 63508041000AB

    - High rally seat 63507941000

    - Fenders 63508910044AB & 63508910044EB

    Which one do you prefer over the stock look? I ordered myself the orange fender and see how it goes! :D
