    This was my ass break-in procedure: Ride a CB500X 10k miles in about 5 months then switch to a 790. It's like going from a 2x4 to a sofa.

    What works for one might not work for another. Its easy for you to scoff and say "ignore it", but when you are literally squirming in your seat and feeling like you want to jump off the bike at 65mph if you can't stop for a break, that's a problem that needs fixed. It is distracting from safe operation, and it does not make for an enjoyable ride.

    Out on the back roads it isn't so much of an issue for me, its easy enough to stand up and take a break that way. Long highway stretches are the issue - slabbing 400 miles to that weekends destination, etc.

    @No-Fret Your chain guard is mounted wrong, the outer front has to slip into the other part.
    This fault is very common (by dealers?) and causes weird chain rattle noise at low revs.

    They come out of the crate that way, we don't have to touch the chain guard. You can thank the factory...

    That's why so many new owners report chain rattle

    I will look at my early production bike and the next few that come out of the crate to see how they are set up. No chain noise on my personal bike. Also wonder if there are issues on the R vs S...

    Mine is super quiet but will check the manual and others on the showroom floor.

    Do you work at a KTM dealership near you? If so, what is your role there?

    I wanted to have my tools, saw, tow strap, med kit and “possibles” bag semi-permanently attached to the bike in these waterproof Giant Loop bags. I rode yesterday and like the setup. I used zip ties to test, but will replace them with webbing. I like the idea that it’s always ready to ride. I also like that it is not located on the rear rack all the time. I have a hard time swinging my leg over the bike if the rear rack is full. I plan to add my Giant Loop Coyote bag when traveling.

    Personal experience - normal zip ties can fatigue and fail. If those bags are held on by zip ties, I'd switch to the heavier duty, metal impregnated ties. I used those on my HOG's side bags and they haven't moved in a decade.

    Ithaca Rec Sports. Sales, bike setup, light wrenching (I have been to the KTM school in OH) that kind of thing.
