    Thought I would share the latest 790 I happened to build into a more hardcore adventure bike trying to make it look like a Dakar factory bike :p curious to know if you like or don't like this look!

    Other than the fairing, seat, and sticker kit, what else have you done?

    To my untrained eye, looks like a different skid plate to me. But he had me at the rally fairing!

    Looks like a painted stock pan to me. I ain’t betting the farm on it, that was just my gut.

    Plus one on whether the sticker kits are for sale

    Great looking bike! I would also be interested in where the fairing kit came from.

    Thanks!

    With that in mind I started noticing all the "rebel" logos on the sticker kit. Must be something made in conjunction with Rebel X.

    That is prototype, shown in 2018 Europe KTM adventure Rally. More pictures from same event. It does look good in black.

    Got my Hepco Becker tank bag from Moto Machines. Got the tank ring mounted on and just waiting for temps to come up to get the bag mounted.

    Just realised the KTM 790R web site is featuring an action photo with a crooked OEM skid plate :p

    That's such old news. There is a whole thread somewhere about this, and it predates the arival of the first bikes :)

    The first thing that popped into my head was... Is there enough clearance to remove the battery cover with that in place?

    More pics of the tank bag. On the question of battery access, not sure about the tank mount being in the way. I will remove the battery cover this weekend, but even if it's in the way it's just 4 bolts.

    I completely agree. I really like the low fender on this bike.

    On a previous Africa Twin, I had a slow speed dirt nap where a rock strategically crushed the sidestand switch. I had previously read about how to hack the switch wires so I could get the bike started again. Also, there are several companies that make sidestand switch guards for various makes/models of bikes that I then added to the AT (and to a 1200GS). For my 790 Adventure S I have two questions:
    1. Does anyone make a sidestand switch guard for the 790? I haven't found any onliine yet.
    2. Can anyone explain how you would wire the switch wires together (with or without a resistor) to bypass the switch in the field if it got damaged? As I recall on either the AT or 1200GS you just needed to connect two of the wires together.

    I found a voltage divider formula online. I plugged in 80 kilohms & 7 kilohms and then the source voltage of 5vdc from what Ron said. That spits out 0.402 which might be close enough.

    You might ask these guys....they solved the issues with the 1090/1190/1290's.
