    I LOVE my Corbin seat. They shaved the OEM seat down just enough so that I can reach the ground with one foot without having to lower the suspension (I’m 5’7”), and the seat is still very comfortable!

    I highly recommend Corbin, especially if you can ride in and have them customize the seat with your feedback. My seat was completed in about 4hrs.

    I imagine. Just wanted to be sure it was part of the package.

    The canister kit comes with a dongle. Yes these kits can be pricey if you just price the value of the parts, but I am paying for the idea someone had and the time, cost, and effort they went to in making and packaging a kit and making instructions for installation.

    Got my bike set up with all the goodies I’m going to add for now - this evening I put on the Rekluse Radius X and Pivot Pegs and yesterday evening it was the Scotts damper and BRP mount. Those were the final items in my wish list.

    This weekend I’ll make sure everything is tuned and set up properly and next week I’m off to Big Bend to go put all of this to work.

    Ramirin was referring to the Fuel line kit @ $99.95, which is very expensive for what it is.
    The Canister removal kit is only $22.95.

    Yeah, that was my thought on the fuel kit as well. While the chrome covered brass QD fittings are neither cheap nor easy to find, they certainly aren't that pricey. Last year I was adventurizing my 350 and put the big Acerbis tank on it. I wanted each tank to have its own fuel pump and QD so I could quickly switch between single track and distance. Shopping around I found this for about $35.

    That, some fuel line from the autoparts store, and an inline filter should work just fine on the 790 for less than $55 all in. To be fair to Rottweiler, the Zip-Ty filters are obscenely expensive for what you get IMO, but that has to be contributing significantly to the pricing. I can't remember what inline filter I have on the 350, but I think it was recommended in another thread here somewhere that I can't find. I'm sure it costs about $15 and has the same micron rating as the zip-ty, just not in fancy orange anodized that you can't see under the tank anyway.

    I looked at this but I had trouble with the $40 price tag. It looks like a solid bit of construction, maybe I'm just being cheap? :hmmmmm

    If you only knew how much work it takes to make such a simple little plate. It requires 2 milling fixtures and 4 setups in the mill. Sometimes the simplest products require the most effort. But it's a nice piece and I'm pretty happy with how well it works...

    PS: there's a 10% discount code in my signature if that helps...

    Did you see Rottweiler's take on this? He incorporated LED turn signals and an extra brake light - way cool.

    Exactly. 20 bucks for anything usefull is ok but fuel line kit should be squeezed around $50..

    Cpc connectors are expensive pieces though, I did under estimate them a bit. A pair with valve on each would cost around $40 (in pack of 10) + shipping.

    I take my words back. It's kinda niche product for 790 - probably Rottweiler deserves $99,95 for stocking everything and making it a customer friendly product.

    I certainly didn't mean to criticize your product or pricing, my apologies to you if it came across that way.

    We each need to evaluate within ourselves "do i want to spend $X on Y" when buying any product, is all I meant. For me, it would just be to install a cheeky vanity plate frame that won't fit on the OEM bracket, and internally I have to consider that question. Thank you for your reply and discount offer!

    Wednesday night's garage time...

    Solid stuff, really well thought out, I'm delighted. You know it's great stuff when the creator signs it. Plus there were stickers. :-)

    Thursday's night garage work. Went back an forth between Black Dog an AXP skid plates, ended up going Black Dog. It'll get it done. Added about 3.5kg.

    With that on all that's left is handguards and maybe the OEM tall seat.

    anyone know of an aftermarket replacement for the fuel cap on 790 adventure? something that doesn't require a key?
