I love the location and size of the display. Can’t wait to get out there and use it!

    Looks like the Dunlop 908 RR on the rear, you running it tubeless?

    No, I have Dubya wheels so I am running tubes. Although, I was told by the person I got the tire from who did some work for Dunlop that been though they are not officially rated for tubeless that they are made tubeless specs.

    It would be a few weeks before I can do that because my bike is in Portland and I am on the other side of the country at the moment.

    I wasn't asking your permission, just letting people know it's available...

    Just wondering what sort of hassle opening the cap with a key really is unless it's happening lots of times each day. Who mentioned 'permission' other than you?

    At the end of the day it doesn't really matter how many times I have to open the cap, or if you think it's needed or a waste of time - It's available for those who want it. Last post on this subject from me.

    This was my thought too. The bike can go 450 kms without refuelling. Maybe less if riding really hard, but even then hundreds of kms. Who would need this gas cap? Just because something exists doesn't mean you have to buy it. But hey it's your money.

    yeah, was a simple question because I can't see the extra hassle having to spend 5 seconds to opening a gas cap maybe once or twice a day at the very most. Just opens up the risk of someone putting sand/water/other bad things in the tank. Asked a simple question and got a rude reply.

    I think it might be handy if you have a Scotts damper fitted. Doesn’t the cap flip up and hit it?

    Maybe people intentionally keep their gas tank nearly empty and add fuel frequently in order to keep weight low? I don't know, is that a thing when hardcore offroading?

    It is.
    It’s also gonna be convenient for anyone with stuff mounted on their bars in that vicinity too, like me, and as someone just stated, anybody with a Scott’s damper.
    I’m not going to rush out and buy it though, a robust skid plate is first on my list.

    On the 'flip' side, I enjoy the convenience of not having to look for a place to lay my gas cap when gassing up. OEM is pretty laid back that way :)

    #@$%^&. Did anyone actually find that skid plate on a site, with specs yet? Maybe I need another coffee.

    haha. The machine is upstairs .. too lazy to get off my easyboy in the garage down here. But I gotsa a nicorette in now so who knows. ;)

    I still say next summer is going to be a lot different, 790 accessories, landscape wise. A lot of guys are becoming early adopters and thats also cool, because some of that will end up in the flea market here. But the choices will be wide in time. I'm taking the advice I'm doling out, and 'waiting'. Winters around here, with our -50 weather, and 3' of snow in the back forty is perfect for oogling stuff and dweaming. Thats how I ended up in this 790 ADV R madness in the first place.
