    I believe the factory TPMS would have been the whole valve on the OEM system with tubeless. I have already gone to tubes.

    Hey @Mud Bucket can you share some pics what you've mounted the TPM gauge to? Did you extend the Rade 12mm bar?...

    Yeah me too, tubeless... I'm a convert. Much easier to repair trail / roadside :)

    Hey 790’ers...

    regarding mounting any of these options - except rally fairings, does it work by unscrewing that single point on the stock screen and mounting the after markets?

    basically, on my 1290r I’ll mount a big old madstad when I’m doing a lot of miles or going to a rally, then pull it off and throw the oem
    Short screen back in for dirt rides or for dirt rides locally. It’s a bit more involved and I need a Torx and a Phillips head. I’m hoping with the 790 (my next bike) I could do the same operation but with a single anchor point — which I’m hoping to attach the Rottweiler hand knob so I won’t even need a tool!

    Re the entire debate aforementioned on the thread - the only thing that’ll work, as we all have different helmets and acceptance of buffering, is a barn door. I played around for ages and finally came to the Madstad for Highway and rip it off for dirt; I don’t like the idea of decapitating myself. It would make a mess of the bike!

    Installed the prototype. Fits perfectly! Still making some tweaks, but the results are encouraging. Sorry, no pics yet.

    Took the 790 out for a longer run with the MadStad 18". Angled it further forward in high position and was still getting buffeting. Weird thing was, clear air was going over the top of my helmet. I am 6 '2" so cant imagine going higher is going to make things any better from a turbulence perspective. Considering returning it even though it keeps all the heavy air off my chest and helmet, the buffeting is a PITA.

    With the standard screen and the MRA sport wind deflector, the buffeting is coming from the sides of the screen.

    Only Problem with screens covering the Headlight is that it reflects the light of said headlight which looks like this:

    One can even see it in the picture of the Rade screen above. Kinda distracting and illegal in my nanny state as well.

    Gotta be 100% sure it works for me and someone much taller. If yes, I need to find a company to make it for a cost riders would be willing to pay. Coming up with ideas is easy. Making a viable product is hard.

    Take a look at the Givi Airflow windshield. Don't know if they make it for your bike, but I love it on my BMW F700GS. Just ordered one for my new 570GS. It is an adjustable 2 piece shield. Easy to remove large top section if you are off road or just want lots of air. I ride with it down when it is warm and I want minimum frontal size. When you raise it you get pretty good wind protection for chest and inside of arms. The top lip curls forward and stops helmet buffeting.

    Twisted Throttle found that the Givi warehouse has the Airflow fitted for my 750 and I expect it in a couple of days. No one else seems to have both the shield and the bracket.

    Yeah and seat and a ton of other. Between crappy internet and small phone, I wasn’t patient enough to explore more.

    Just got home and finally accessed a computer. Spent the rest of the night looking at the 9x0 kits and the 701 lite. All very sexy.

    I’m actually really exited to see what Aurora comes up with.
