    Correct. I have mine mounted in the middle holes as per instructions or the Scott's lever won't be in alignment with the post (too far forward or back).

    It's funny; I had forgotten that in the old days when buying a Scotts mounting kit for on top of the bars, I would have to specify which bar position I was using. As far as the TCM submount, I believe I have mine mounted in the farthest forward position, and the mounting is OK for the Scotts. As you sweep lock to lock, there is a little fore and aft movement of the arm versus the pin, but it is in the range Scott's deems acceptable.

    thank you. it doesn't appear that the brp submount offers the options to mount stems further back. i found that the vanasche submount and tripleclamp moto submount offer multiple options for mounting the stems. darn. i guess that i'll return the brp submount that i just ordered, when it arrives.

    I'm glad this is an option. It might be counter-productive to be forced into 1 mounting position. I wonder how that XRC dampener that Birch uses mounts, and if it also has options. Looks pretty slick. Doesn't sound like it raises the bars, which I like.

    I'll say what I want. if you have too short an attention span, don't read it.

    It's bad enough our country's 3M masks were held at the border by some *insert expletive*, but now I can't even order a new set of goggles. Tried last night and got this error. Gee, I wasn't going to wear my MX goggles to town as part of my PPE, but maybe I should be. :loco

    Hi @peterbuild , do you mind describing what you did to fit the fender on the bike? I understand the brakeline goes between the lower tripleclamp and the fender. Thanks.

    Hi Turboo.
    I didn't take pictures of what i did with the fender but i try to explain:
    problem with the EXC fender is, there is no space for the T-connection of the brakelines between it and the fork triple.
    So you have to grind of some material with a Dremel or something like that, or like i did, taking a heatgun and a steelpart to melt a little bulge in the area of the fendertop, where the brakeline T-connection is.
    If you take of the original fender and compare it with a EXC version, you get the idea.
    Here is a pic of a guy of the ktmforum.eu, he did the "Dremel-version": 20190730_173154_ktmforum.jpg

    I also made air-vent slots into the fender. EXC fender doesn't have them.
    It is a hell of a job, but before you bore your self to death in lockdown, you might wanna save the money over the white fender of the Rally :D

    Canada eh, does anyone here know where and who we can order a proper foam air filter for our 790's from at this time? Like the uni foam with the 2nd foam included? Lots of issue's with shipping and out of stock problems.

    A fanny pack will work. Whatever they are. Never heard of 'em. Ain't got a one. Nope.

    Only thing I've seen that makes sense to me is the Rottweiler power plate pre-filter. I wouldn't trust any filter element inside the KTM air box, it's just a bad design.

    We have a company here in Victoria that has a delivery address in Blaine Washington. They truck stuff over the border and then I clear it myself at the airport customs. Works well and reasonable cost ($18). Hope you guys in the interior have some similiar options.

    @peterbuild Okay, great. Thank you for replying. Due to the lockdown, there is plenty of time to wrestle with this. ;)

    I recently got an email from USP (United States Plastic Corps), I guess I bought something from them in my long forgotten past.

    I don't know about you but that sure looks like KTM Florescent Orange to me. Just saying...
    They have 7 other colors if you're looking for some contrast.
