Rear tanks, love em already.
1000 km weekend with only 1 fuel stop
Now some may scoff at my reasoning behind the tall fender/hand guards install on my S model.
I wanted to be a little more conspicuous in the "head on" department.
With the stock set up it was all Black except for the leading edges of the fuel tank cover
and the fork guards. Very subdued and practically INVISABLE.
Now it's flying TRAFFIC CONES coming at you!
You could probably get away with just buying the high fender and using the
stock fork guards. The rear mount of the guards don't look that finished since the
low fender braces cover it. Maybe you could find a find a fancy tapered washer for it.
If that sort of stuff bothers you.
Flaming front end Side view.
Don't worry, I've got an appointment to get some new tires mounted this Friday.
I'm very interested in losing the slop. Just took a look at ducatispacers. I'm assuming the 890 adv throttle is the same as the 790 for this application. Anybody know this this for a fact? Thanks
It looks great, but who cares what other people say; it’s your ride!
My wife will, at times, offer her input where my bikes and safety are involved. And so she did one day early on in my 790 R ownership when she remarked how highly visible the orange hand guards were when she passed me on the hwy. I almost felt dirty when I swapped them out for my old HDB guards (in black). Wait till she see what I have in store this year. I going for rat crossed with stealth invisibility.
I'm still trying to figure out how someone gets over 300 miles on a tank when I can barely get 200. Strange!
If you are referring to me.... As I said. I have rear tanks so its easy
Are both of them plumbed? How do you switch to them?
Yeah, a Y piece joins the two under the shock, a tap above the CS sprocket and a tee into the tank cross over...easy as
When youre below half a tank, turn the red tap on and it drain from rear tanks to front
Or... You could get really snazzy and fit up the ‘Rally’ fuel tap.
At 400+ EUR if they’re still available!
Briggs and Stratton works for me
I’d sure think so. Did you try looking at the parts fiche?
Yet another reason why I love headlights that throw a beam that looks like a beam of energy coming from a nuclear explosion.
I have not but I will. Took the lazy approach first....
Thanks for the heads up on the part.
This all sounds like a $36 solution to a 10¢ problem. Few layers of blue tape in the right spot. Also lets you fine tune the exact thickness. When I demo'd a 790 in 2019, I absolutely hated the throttle dead zone, so much so I thought it might be a deal breaker. All my previous bikes I had taken out all slop manually as much as possible without steering lock causing throttle input. A year later, and having owned a 2020 790 for 3 months of riding before winter hit, I have gotten used to it, but still plan to do something about it before spring is over.
I hated the slop when I got the bike, but eventually got used to it. Then I jumped on a friend's BMW that didn't have this problem, and when I got back on my 790 I would have sworn there was something broken. Whether you blue tape it or buy the spacer, do something. You'll thank yourself later.
I don't have one , haven't ridden one , understand they work really well. I'm probably showing my age , but , this re-work of a 790 by Roland Sands pulls me in.
I like it too. I'd REALY like a Kenny Roberts XS650 looking flat track replica 790.
Usually it has to do with how much you twist the throttle. I feel sad for those who ride these little rippers like an old KLR to get that kind of fuel mileage.
