    Another brilliant and simple mod; hope pricing is reasonable. Hats off :clap to the Rotty folk.
    My only concern is deep water crossings, and water getting in from the top.

    Or an attachable "periscope" option to go submarining across those deep water crossings...

    I was all about pre-filters on other ADV bikes that were a PITA to get to the airfilter (1190R & 800XC for example) However I don't see the point of one on the 790. It only takes seconds to get to the filter and if running the Aussie UNi-filter only takes a minute to swap in a fresh set of foam filters and the spares take up basically no space at all.

    So, my 790 Adv R had a leaking thermostat housing that I took in to get serviced. It had also developed the hard starting problem that other people have reported but did so at ~2600 miles.

    When I took the bike in for service, they replaced the thermostat housing and let me know that KTM has changed the design so, worth checking into if you're seeing issues with leaking coolant. They also reset all the learnt data in the various ECUs to see if that helped with the hard starting. So far it has but, I'll report back further if the problem comes back.

    The behaviour I was seeing with the hard starting was that the bike would fire up, rev over 2k RPM and then drop down and stall. Prior to seeing this issue, it would drop down but not that low. It would take ~3 tries to get the bike started without manually adding throttle.

    I liked the idea of those and set out to 3D print my own. Instead of having to remove the pin to install I'm trying a friction fit. It took 3 tries but they are now on the bike ready for some testing.

    If these don't work out I may try to model something closer to the factory bumpers.

    Some CF porn from today’s work at my garage:

    Quick note for those installing the Tekmo CF covers, the clutch side is a 1min job, but the engine side mandates the removal of the fuel tank. Moreover, the Vanasche case saver touches the CF cover and you will need to trim the CF panel with a dremel in order to fit.

    Running a Recluse on my 790. The install is not perfect. Surging at idle. Back to dealer this week. Did I read some of you running Quickshift with Recluse?

    Be aware that for sweep the indicator is not the spot / small hole but it is the beweled edge - so in the image the position is actually 9 o'clock.

    I just mounted damper with TCM mount too, it seems I had either shorter pin or deeper hole as it goes in too deep.

    The difference between airbox top and snorkel is minimal. Have you sealed bottom and snorkels / airbox lid for stock setup? If not then it's the same.. First place for water to go in is the bottom plugs meant to let water go out.
    It would be pretty deep for 790 to ride on ~90cm of water.

    These small tactical bags make great map cases and fit perfect. 20200308_164026.jpg
