    Speaking of quality grips, I picked up the Pro Grip foam 786 and boy what a unique feel. Definitely appear to add some thickness over what other grips have. And quite a different tactile feel to them. The main drive for getting them was that reviews online kept referring to them working great to combat neuropathy/pump. And apparently pretty comfortable on long days on the trail with guys remarking that you seen a pile of rally/dakar bikes with them.

    And no glue required...a bitch to get on, inch worming them down, particularly on the left side where my EVO bars are textured. If it hadn't been after my wife's bedtime I would have fired up the compressor and made short work of it, but the garage is 2 stories below our bedroom.

    I'll report back on how they feel when spring finally arrives and I can get out for a spin.

    @CaseyB here are the photos of the areas requiring grinding. Actually the grinding was fine, it was when I accidentally snapped off part of the small tab on the assembly cover that I got lucky. I was only trying to gently flex it out a bit. Proceed at your own peril...;)

    I took my time and ground JUST enough without going too far. I suspect the small tabs in the photo serve to clamp down on the bars to secure the throttle assembly. Taking off too much material will leave you unable to clamp it all back down! I simply ground a bit off, and checked it out for fitment and function and then repeated that process a dozen times. By going in tiny increments of material removal you never run the risk of removing too much. Plus every throttle assembly may be slightly different, so your own work may differ slightly from my own.

    But... why?
    This 790 is no Supersport bike, it "needs" slop for throttle,
    just as any other bike that might get pretty dirty sometimes.
    That said, I fear your G2 will bind again, as soon as you ditch your RHS into dirt oder simply have a day out going from dust into rain/mud.

    So I completely wrecked the threaded pin that passes through the brake reservoir and holds on the brake lever. I was changing to my new shorty levers, and I couldn’t get the pin out of the threaded portion of the reservoir. I have no idea why that pin has a flat rounded head but is still threaded in. I was able to make a M6 bolt with a matching grip length work for now.

    Anyways, does anyone know if KTM would sell such a random part?

    Or your dealer can look it up, order it in, and incur the shipping etc.

    Start by identifying the part number, and then punch that into google (in quotes) and the various sites that supply that part will come up. European or perhaps even N/A; just chose your poison.
