    The orange s is the best looking of the 3, imo. I don’t like the busyness of the R, but the looks are really at the bottom of the list with this motorcycle.

    Please note that it is the EXC 450 model, even if it is very similar to the 790R.
    The interaxis is the same, I fixed it with four M6x20 bolts. Around 20€ on ebay in italy.

    No, they are simply bolted toghether.
    With a torx TX30 you do all the job.
    Note #2: you need to slightly move away the brake oil line to fit the fender in the right position.
    Note #3: the price of the only 790R fender is about 80€. With 150€ you also get new sidepanels, wich you don't need..

    Nice pic. Where is this?

    The road going into the ocean reminds me of a pic of mine. Similar composition. Just gloss over the 800GSA there.

    How do you like the tall screen off road? I'm considering getting one for my 'R'.

    How does it look on your bike? I am not really happy. I think the 790 r fender does have a cut out for the oil lines.

    Anybody know when the 790 Adventures are supposed to touch down in the US? My dealer is telling me it could be as late as July, but they don't have a lot of intel.

    When I ordered mine (in SWE) my dealer could check production date and what date it leaves Austria.
    Can US dealers not access this information?
    Mine is factory complete 18th June ships the 21st. :wave

    It’s just a diy job to beef it up a bit until something better comes out .
