    Hi kzeb,

    nice choice of Ducati, i have a PS myself!

    Out of curiosity, why do you want a big screen on your bike? I feel the existing screen looks too fragile, and I prefer adventure bike to be as robust as possible. With the much kit up front even a minor fall on a muddy track could cost quite a bit!

    I don't know about kzeb, but I prefer a large screen for navigation. I've taken a few tumbles with the same tablet mounted up there and it stays put. If it breaks, I am out $180 USD that I paid for the tablet, and I will order something else of similar size, or the exact same thing again.

    Ok, electronics must be more expensive here, as an active pro in NZ cost US$800!

    The active pro is a 10 inch tablet and is close to that cost here. What you see in the pic is a tab active 2, which brand new is 400-500, but used/ebay can be had for 200 or less. The tab active 2 is an 8 inch tablet. The tab active 3 is coming soon, so the 2 will get even easier to find cheaper.

    I’m sure everyone and their mother would mistake “Outback Motortek” with “SW Motech” because I mistakenly spelled it “SW Mototech”.

    Not caring is somehow synonymous with being offended? Only in 2020 :jkam

    Not going to go too mad on the bike, but so far have installed:

    Wings exhaust
    Pivot Pegz - fuck me, they were a bitch to install,
    PP engine plate
    790 Adventure mirrors
    Evotech stand bobbins
    Kriega tail pack

    I’m not going to look in here much, as it’ll hurt my wallet! :D

    The mount and tablet is quite rugged and can take alot of abuse I got it quite cheap aswell :D
    The reason for a large tablet was to see more of the surroundings on the map with my poor eyes.
    I've tried the Osmand map this season, it has a myriad of settings.. quite too many for my taste which is a bit
    troublesome... not really sure if I would recomend a tablet for that reason I find the Garmin style a lot easier.

    Cheers :beer

    Heat shielded the inside of the tank (arts and crafts time), canister-ectomied, powercell fuel cap, Rottweiler fuel pump guard and elbow onboard now. All this to essentially have the overflow not on top of the exhaust in a little grommet that pops out of you look at it wrong.

    installation of all is pretty straightforward.

    I’m still waiting on a couple piles of cash before I send my suspension out, and rear hub to California.

    Just a bit jealous of the Paul Smart. (!)

    Hang on to that.

    Homemade tower and KTM Rally windscreen, no disturbing buffeting.

    @Nowwhat, @windblown101, i thought that somewhere one of you shared details or link to info about how to convert 790 adv to single front disc brake. i'm ready to take the plunge and would appreciate where i can find some guidance.

    Not sure what route Nowwhat took. I followed the lead of a couple other inmates and bought a late model 690 Duke OEM MC assembly and ordered a custom brake line from Galfer. On mine I kept the ABS pump so the brake line I ordered was 48" with a regular 90 degree fitting for the brake caliper side and a 90 degree lateral fitting for the ABS side. Length of custom line depends on how you want to route the line and if you are keeping the ABS or not. Best to measure so it will fit the way you want it to.

    Rottweiler sells a complete kit with all the bells and whistles. I'm certain it is top of the line stuff with a invoice to match. My conversion cost me a good bit less than it would have cost me to order two additional brake rotors for my spare front wheel if I had left things stock. Win-win IMHO. I'm weird that way, blow stupid money on one thing and pinch money on another. *shrug* :)

    Rotty has two kits now; a standard and an overkill one.
