    Is it September yet? hahahaha

    Wheels have been a problem with getting the hubs....the suspension is in....no airbox solution yet as you know...

    Trying to get a 790 duke SC Project exhaust to fit with a sparky welded into the db killer....I am confident that if I excercise a bit of patience here Chris from Rottweiler will nail it....sooooo.....deep breath and patience....

    any foreseen issues with tuning? we've all seen gram pics of 790's on the dyno at his shop, is the ecm totally locked down, or has he been able to play with it at all?

    After a test fit of my Mosko Reckless 80s that I took off another bike I discovered I didnt care for the odds that the left side would sooner or later foul with the swingarm so I mocked a simple stand-off for the left rear side of the bike to ensure they could not swing in too far.

    It ain't pretty but its functional. Might just paint it black and call it good.

    Last update was tuning was no problem. Getting the engine light to no come on was the issue

    Dongles dont work as the ECU wont accept static voltage inputs

    These racks work with many types of bags out there. Your best bet on finding out if they'll work with the Wolfman bags is to contact Wolfman directly and ask them--they'll be able to tell you definitively!

    I know these racks are loved because they can be removed so quickly! Thanks for checking them out and asking. If you find out, post up here so other inmates can be in the know also.

    Ktm (or EE, whoever actually makes them) should’ve offered a black ano version of those to match.

    Several companies used to, but they got tired of the complaints when hard use wore the colored anodizing/coating off the leading edges.

    I didn't do a good job of checking clearance on mine when I installed them, and now I've got scratches on my dash from those massive replacement bolts.

    A warning to anyone else fitting the powerparts hand guards:
    • You don't need the spacer on the left
    • You might not need the spacer on the right
    • They will foul against the dash at full lock in anything other than neutral / aft positioning with the spacers
    • They're actually just Barkbusters two point tapered mount kit with different plastics
    If you ordered them from Barkbusters the instructions would warn you that they will foul the dash, but that's not in the power parts instructions:

    I'm guessing the fact that you put risers on at the same time, and were smarter / more careful than me is why you didn't foul yours.

    Not the end of the world, and I can probably buff them out at some point. Might be a useful thing for others to know though.

    That happens to everything, I don’t know why people would bitch, other than to have something to complain about.

    Hmmm... you telling me that I don't need the spacers? I will try to get rid of them now and see how the clearance is...

    Oki, on the left side you don't need the spacer. But on the right side you need it... you can get away with one half the size, but you can't have nothing there :-)

    They say it is 47mm higher, but I only measured 45mm :p Still a huge improvment for me with my 200cm

    So I had my wife’s 790 R lowered 50mm (front and rear). Now the side stand is too tall. Should I pay a welder to lower the side stand, or should I buy the (shorter) side stand for the 790 S?

    The Standard 790 has 40mm less travel VS the 790 R. That means my wife’s 790 R is about 10mm lower than a Standard 790. Will the Standard 790 side stand still work on my wife’s bike? Does anyone have any input for me on this?
