    Question for those who have rack fitted, do the racks connect to the passenger foot pegs?
    From the pics it looks like the KTM ones do and I would like to remove the passenger foot pegs and brackets.

    Saved some weight, improved looks. The sound is throatier without being too load. Delivered to Georgia in one week. Love Wings.

    I’ve had Wings on all my Ktms. Awesome cans and awesome customer service. I bet the 790 sounds badass with Wings.

    For those who might not know, you can request your Wings can without the Wings logo on it. I think it looks cleaner that way. Maintains a stock look. The black can without logo looks perfect IMO

    You also can get it without the end cap.

    At least for my 690 you could

    The OEM luggage rack does connect to the passenger foot peg bracket. You could remove the pegs, but not the bracket.

    The wings exhaust looks the best, by far! God damn what a sexy little can! I can't resist the urge... I need it... I NEED IT :p

    Added 3/4 inch BRP risers, worked very well! Not a huge fan of the Rox on the offroad end of it...

    The stock seat is killing me! What is the guy's name that does the custom seats that everyone uses?

    Are you thinking of Seat Concepts? I see a lot of those on KTMs. I ordered the OEM ergonomic seat, but it's on back order until August. I could tell after 150 miles on the highway that I wouldn't want to be on that stock seat for a 300-400 mile day!

    No, I spoke with them and it sounds like what they have planned isn't going to help my situation. My memory is failing me but it's a guy who does each seat custom and has like a 3 month wait.

    *Edit- I found it. It was Renazco that I was thinking about.

    Perhaps the seat will become more comfortable after it breaks in?

    Maybe, I'll have a couple of months to find out; my ergo/heated seat is on back order.

    The seat is something else... can't put my finger on it, but you get the wood taste to soon for my liking, BUT!!! I have driven my bike about 1200km now, and it's not near that bad anymore. So maybe your ass need to adjust to it, or you have to ride it in? Not sure.... gonna wait a couple of more months before I decide myself

    Did you installed the sticker kit?
    Can you give us an idea where you ordered your custom kit?

    Custom sticker kit, my next big thing after the wings can...

    Several days ago I've seen some pictures of a customized 790R
    with the looks of Dakar 2019 KTM/RedBull bikes all over.
    Made it a completely different bike, so cool.
    Can't find these darn pictures anymore :becca

    Have you ever had a Corbin saddle before? They are harder than most and require a bit of break in time but after that happens they're one of the most comfortable saddles I've had. Maybe it's the same case here...?

    I haven’t removed the DB killer. Personally, I like the Wings with the DB killer in. It is deeper and throatier sounding without being too loud. The stock exhaust is nice but so quiet that I honestly couldn’t hear the bike when riding at 60 mph. Sounded like my wife’s Honda Pilot.

    I saved about 5 pounds on my 690 Enduro when I installed Wings. Do you know what the weight difference is with the 790? Thanks
