    So nice to see I´m not the only one using the BMW Motorrad Navigator VI on my new 790AdvR!!! I still feel a little ashamed about using my Motorrad Rallye 3 suit!

    Running a Nav V on my 790. Still have the BMW, so it’s easy to swap back and forth.

    Spent 5 minutes in the garage, shaved two ounces, my plate is now secured on all four corners to a svelte billet aluminum license plate bracket. I don't know who KTM hires to do theirs, but I don't think they've ever been in the US. Always seems like an after thought. At least on the 790R you can mount to the top corners without buying anything. I was going to leave it but I want to do a small extension to keep the dirty water off my back, and the bottom reflector on the oem bracket is right in the way. Yeah, I know, should have just cut it off.

    Anyway, I like the Powercell brackets, had one on my 1090. They come with all the TORX! hardware you need and just work. http://www.powercellperformance.com/shop/ktm-790/billet-license-plate-adaptor-ktm-790-adventure

    Rough weight was 4.5 oz vs 6.5 oz for stock. :-) The scale doesn't show on the phone for some reason.

    Top chain guard has piece that slides into a slot on the chain slider.

    Just installed the new Rottweiler fuel line kit that eliminates having to disconnect that fragile plastic connection at the top every time the fuel tank is removed. Instead the fuel line is no longer attached to the gas tank and stays on the bike when the tank is removed. There is a new quick disconnect at the bottom which is easier to deal with and much more durable. Also finally got around to installing the evaporative canister delete kit from Rott. All these kits have youtube installation videos, but I had to go to youtube and search for the canister one because on the Rott website the link was to a video for the 1290. Also in the video they say to connect some of the old hoses to use as the new gas drain hose, but the kit now comes with a standalone hose for that. No pics here because the youtube videos are much better. Earlier I had installed the Powercell quick disconnect fuel taps so now getting the tank off is pretty easy.

    Still had this old Touratech tank bag from my HP2, makes for a perfect rear bag. Can double it's size as well, great for all the unnecessary stuff I bring with me :}

    I was a bit disappointed with the hefty pricing for this piece of hose and $20 cpc connector..

    Will make installing a new plate easier also. Getting and holding a nut on the back side of that connector plate was a bit of a pain.

    Added these Giant Loop straps to replace the OEM grab handles. Only $15 each on Amazon, and they “install” in less than 2 minutes. Will work great for passengers and when you need to push the bike around. IMG_5221.JPG

    Doesn’t it come with a dongle to keep from throwing a code from removing the valve for the canister?

    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.
