    Ok thats the last time i bomb you with renders, but i think a low fender is so much better looking on this bike. Hate low fenders for all kind of reasons but hey, look at that.

    Hey, maybe you can use the KTM led blinkers from the EU model? Its should be plug and play and comes with its own relay.

    You guys spend an awful lot of time worrying about how your bike looks.
    Do you ride them...?

    I used these, bullet connectors are already on the resistors so you can just plug them in to the indicators. I shortened the wires on mine as they were pretty long and put some heat shrink over the whole bundle to keep it tidy. You'll need to do some splicing, I cut the connectors off the old indicators and added bullet connectors to plug into them so I wouldn't do anything irreversible to the main wiring harness.

    What if we combined the Aurora 9x0 Rally Replica tower/screen with a low fender all white? Damn now THAT looks good. Screenshot 2019-11-13 at 00.09.48.png

    Accessory report from East Tennessee.

    Back-ordered parts have finally arrived at the dealership (ordered Oct 8th).
    Right after the arctic blast hit with 2 inches of snow.
    1. Cruise Control switch cluster
    2. Heated grips
    Also received two other motorcycle accessories last week:
    1. Seat Concepts Tall seat
    2. Madstad windshield
    Despite the long lead time shown on the web site I received my tall seat very quickly.
    Oh, whoever reported the availability of the seats on this site, you are in big trouble with my wife.
    Not to worry though, I didn't rat you out.

    Seat observations: Nice, in build and initial comfort (Haven't done any Iron Butt rides yet). I'm sitting taller in the saddle for my 36" LONG legs (less knee angle). When I first hopped on the bike I had to lean forward for the bars. It was like I put a straight bar on the bike, what is this a cafe racer? (still waiting on my 52mm risers).

    When ever the misses comes along for a ride she requested the stock 'S' split seat be returned to the bike. Apparently there isn't that much cushion in the rear of a stylish dirt bike seat.

    In another not so long lead time (maybe they say that so you'll be excited when it arrives "early").

    MadStad windshield works very well. You have two inches of up and down adjust ability. They want you to look OVER the windshield. In the fitting you sit on the bike and imagine your mouth straight out over the TFT display (Nice to have help with this endeavor). Measure down to the top of the display, add 7 inches and that is your windshield height.

    I ended up with a 20" windshield (medium gray tint, also available: clear, light gray and dark gray). I'll warn the minimalist to avert their eyes when I post the pictures. I can feel the air just hitting the top of my helmet with in the midway position. Shield pretty stable in the low position but crank it up two inches and it does bobble around a little bit at highway speeds.

    Like I mentioned before they use both mounting points on the KTM headlight for the metal bracket. Windshield attaches to that at four points using rubber well nuts. It's weird riding in that calm air pocket, I apparently rely on air as an indication of my speed. When I was rolling up on this one turn I quickly realized I probably should have braked further back.

    I also received my MadStad windshield on the same day as the seat. I know, No photos or it didn't happen. It's supposed to warm up a little tomorrow, maybe I'll have a little photo shoot.

    Do you not understand that motorcycles are dangerous?

    I might have just found your sticker kit,
    I'm sure it is no problem to remove some KTM or black 'em out ;)

    not urban (or any) camo, for starters.
    I’ll know it when I see it. Something less busy than oem, but tasteful.
    Truthfully, aesthetics are at the bottom of my list. Functionality is paramount.

    Damn! Thats actually not bad atoll. Nicely thought out with the verbage and muted graphics. I'm going to check out the site to see if there are any photos of it on a 790 yet. Never been an enormous fan of camo, especially when garish but this one passes muster so far.

    :beer

    EDIT: So far can't find photos of that graphic on a 790, but I did come across these which, at least, reveal what it would look like blacked out. Not as 'vague' as I thought it might look.
