    Go to the 790 ADV thread. It's detailed some pages back. Or google Camel ADV one finger clutch...or here:

    Blown shock update. Got my R shock back from dealer. Gave it to them on a Saturday and received back next Thursday. Not bad really. Repaired seal and polished shaft. Shock back on bike and I’m rolling again. I’m thinking I’d like to decat too. Starting to believe the cat heat is causing the blown shocks. Did a short ride and shock spring gets too hot to touch. Heat off Roading would be even worse. Problem is no definitive answer to say it’s safe to decat or not. Coober says no, others say ok. Even mention over at the duke forum that ktm sent a letter to dealers to write down vin’s of any 790’s that come in with decat. I may go with the Arrow as it does seem to have some internal core for packing and may give enough back pressure.

    Make it something a trappist monk slaved over ;)

    If you need more information, reach out to a forum member here - @Camel ADV and he'll help you out. You likely remember him from the 790 thread. I believe he posted a video of him in the rocks, and we were all asking if he'd forgotten he was riding a big 790 haha

    Weiser and Cyclops are different companies. My understanding is Weiser markets primarily in turn signals, brake lights and making the bike more conspicuous. Cyclops markets more toward running lights that light up the road.
    Cyclops lights up the road, Weiser lights up the bike.

    Leaning toward the arrow myself for that reason, but have resolved to wait for a complete solution from Rottweiler involving a decat and fueling solution as a package.

    Sometimes it pays to be an early adopter of a late to market product...I'm waiting for a complete solution as well. No rush. Next season it will be something aw-sommme to look forward to. :D

    Shipping is the bane of my existence. I don't think a work day goes by without me having to make a "WTF is going on with package XYZ" to FedEx, UPS or the post office :( I appreciate your patience.

    I get they're different companies, and Cyclops primary products, but here's what I'm talking about. They make a product that does the same thing here, but $200 less for the whole set of 4:

    https://www.cyclopsadventuresports.com/Evolution-safety-turn-signal-inserts_p_204.html

    Vs. Front set Weiser
    https://www.weisertechnik.com/shop/2-in-1-driving-turn

    + Rear set Weiser
    https://www.weisertechnik.com/shop/2-in-1-brake-turn

    I haven't reached out to either to see if they fit our 790, and if there's a fit issue as you brought up earlier. I'm not in a rush this year, just researching for now.

    Edit: it was kubcat that mentioned he talked to a competitor....
    "be wary of the fit on your 790. I had a lengthy conversation with a competitor of Weiser, and the signal housing is NOT the same shape as the 1290/1190/1090. They are very similar, but the led pwb inserts/retrofits for the big KTMs will not fit our stock housings."

    You mentioned you looked at another company that offers something similar, is there a 3rd choice on the market ? I couldn't find anything in a Google search.

    I like the Cyclops product at that price point. Has anyone discovered if they fit the 790?

    I was blown away with the speed of delivery to be honest. I ordered on Sept 2nd, you had it out the door by the 3rd, and I had it in hand on the 6th!

    Oh, and I had a chance to take 'er out for a short ride and buddy, it's a game changer. Love it. It's the way the bike should have come. FAR more confidence with the larger engagement zone, and just a buttery light pull. Can't wait to get it in the gnar.

    Just ordered mine. I'll post up a review after I ride with it a while. BTW, Major thank you for developing this product. Keep it up.

    No, but that’s a great price for that style foot peg IMHO. I needed a height drop, so I went custom with Bosleys, but otherwise I’d be all over these.
