    If memory serves, the 1290 rear disc is 5mm/ 1/4" larger diameter than the 790 rear disc.

    if you want spokes wheels the 1190S wheels will work. I had a set made by Woody’s Wheels but if you find a set off a 1190S then swap your rotors and you are all set.

    19/17 should have been how KTM made the S.

    Borrowed these tyre comparison rating charts (author unknown at this stage) off the local forum down under, added some colored trace lines to assist in getting a read...

    Not saying it's definitive, but rather a fair indication, subject to (local) terrain.

    Interesting? Maybe a Venn diagram coming up... :photog

    Any idea how the performance categories were weighted to come up with the combined value? It seems like there could be a lot of author bias in that list, given the performance ratings. Any links to a source? I'd like to see the overall performance, price and mileage rankings independently, since price and mileage preferences vary widely.

    Those are from a Chap moto 2020 tire review/test video. Just watched it yesterday. They show those charts at the end of the video (Youtube)

    I thought I recognized the table graphics. What confused me is linking the combined price mileage performance list with only a subset of the performance tests. This is the table that should be on the left.

    Note also that there are 4 additional performance categories that went into that overall ranking;
    Rain Grooves
    Deep Sand
    Baby Heads
    Hill Climbs

    Also all you East Coasters and Europeans keep in mind that neither Mud nor wet Rock/Root performance was tested, since....

    It never rains in California

    I don't think there's a "they" when it comes to those tests, testing is all done by that YouTube feller from Chapparal Motorsports. While he's ambitious for taking on the task, recording everything, making videos etc, his riding environment seems limited, largely based on his location I guess. I would give more weight to his reviews when it comes to the hard surface portions of the testing, but not so much when it comes to off-road.

    ^ For me, some of the rankings within categories seem a bit odd... But then we are talking about tyres / tires, a highly subjective topic.

    This.

    Unless they use the same rider, on the same bike, with a matched set of each brand/type of tire under the same conditions, you have to take these type of reviews with a BIG grain of salt! And even if that is the case, it's still "a highly subjective topic".

    I just order a pair of Kenda Big Block K784 from RMATV for a very affordable price to go on my 790. If I go by this test, I shouldn't be impressed by them. But a friend who is also a very skilled racer/rider has used them on several bikes (790 included) and has no complaints. That's worth way more to me than these spread sheets.

    Not trying to start a discussion about Kenda's, just a comment about the video and spreadsheets..
