    Serious question: what’s the motivation to removing the cat? Weight, sound, heat, power...? My concern would be making an already lean engine (my assumption based on previous bikes) more lean. I’m not familiar with Rottweiler or Coober but am I correct in assuming that they dyno test their intakes and exhausts to make sure a retune isn’t needed?

    Again, not judging but seriously interested.

    I am waiting for some rigorously tested results before making any changes to the fuel/air system, personally.

    Power.....weight ......temps....

    The 790 I rode felt like every other KTM that had its balls cut off by regulations....lose the cat and the air box and the stock lean tune....add a dyno tune, a proper exhaust and a 15t front sprocket ....voila

    I do not think this bike is like older ktms where the cat was an afterthought and a big performance burden. We’ll see what Rottweiler finds. I’m betting that a tuner/ignition is going to unlock it even with the cat.

    All Cats are burdens......Rottweiler has already deleted the cat on their 790 duke....

    Yes, but if the cam timing is such that you are counting on that back pressure, weird things can happen. I haven’t been following their Duke build, but like I said before, I will take their results as the final word once they work on their 790 Adv.

    You are only counting on that back pressure for low rpm efficiency...that's where the dyno tune comes in....can't fix the valve overlap.....that's one reason why this bike won't make 150hp hahahaha.....looks like Arrow has added and expansion chamber to their mid pipe and they have made more efficient headers to keep the exhaust velocity in line.....all in all there is 15 percent more power sitting there to be released....

    Everybody is different. For me personally there's already so much power, I feel like I really don't need any more.

    Installed the Motoz Tractionator Rally set today. Can not see how this is not an upgrade to the OEM shoes. Well, for what we'll be riding.

    Now for the :spam
    We also installed the BRP Rubber Mounted Submount, Scotts adjustable damper, Double Take ADV Mirrors, Our Stout Mount and Perfect Squeze phone mount by Hondo Garage.
    If you look close at the 1st picture, you can see our prototype ABS Cable Guide.

    Pretty much my feelings too. I would actually give up some HP at the top to pick up some tourque at the bottom. I installed new cam sprockets on my GS that moved the peak torque down about 600 RPM at the expense of top end power. Made a huge difference pulling out of corners.

    That will most likely be the biggest adjustment moving to the 790: getting used to the different torque delivery.

    Emailed Givi. They said check back next month, but multiple products are in the works. Exciting.

    Some minor tweaks to be made on the flap dimensions as I can only source M6 spire nuts locally and they're dimensionally larger than what I'd prefer...
