    I made a gearing calculator for the 790 Adventure. Ratios come from the owners manual, and tire diameter comes from Metzeler's technical data. I use this spreadsheet for racing and never bothered to convert it to proper units (metric), so I just added in a conversion column and added some slower speeds from typical racing values. I stole this from somewhere years ago, so credit goes to some unknown racer, and any criticism can also go to them :).

    Go ahead and steal a copy. The only inputs that need to be changed are the tire diameter and sprocket ratio section if you want to see what the differences will make. Alternates for 6th gear show up side by side so you can see what RPMs will be at your usual cruising speed.

    Changing up - keep the throttle open and just click up through the gears as you need them. This really comes into its own for over-takes and more spirited riding, but could be used anywhere.

    Changing down - just roll off the throttle and click it down.

    Trying to shift up when off the throttle, things won't go smoothly, as the bike is trying to modulate the throttle itself and you'll be restricting its position.

    I tend not to use it in slow traffic, but that's just personal preference.

    See if your dealer can let you have a shot on something that already has one to try out.

    Thanks for the MyRide info. It's going for its first service at the end of the month. I'll get them to unlock it.

    OKOK you got me, I wanna throw this Mazinga on the pump and also your proper air filter into my 790R.
    But first... (coffee)

    1. Can't find the mazinga in your webshop.
    2. Your search by brand/model does not work for 790R.
    (3. It's 790 "Adventure", not Enduro :D )

    Could you also recommend some products for filteroil, grease (sealing) and cleaner?

    a real filter will sit below the neck flange, filtration is different than "sifting"

    this is a much bigger and more efficient way to protect the strainer and save a lot of troubles to the pump, the main hidden filter works at 10 microns, we hope , the strainer, as we described in the blog, has a pore size of 60 microns (almost) , and only a real filter at neck can preserve that.

    if you reduce the difference in microns between the filtration level, and efficiency, between tow systems...... sorry I'm going technical on you, that's pretty rude ahahaah

    at the pump you cannot go below 40 microns, you will risk cavitation and collapse, imagine the "sock" around the pump being sucked inside the pump and closing up the fuel passages, and in this pump all is pretty tight, there was no need for that, I may modify the pump adding better fuel flow in the future, with the collapsed media occluding the fuel passage, the pump will cavitate and die..... therefore you need the correct level of strainer filtration and a huge media surface to avoid any kind of flow restriction, differential pressure, filtration efficiency vs pressure drop and so on.... again, sorry, being rude here :)

    you need a good prefiltration and a huge surface :) that's the way :)

    cheers

    damn, the Adventure description is entirely on me, I sooooo much wish for the return of the 640 ADV that I'm already dreaming of a proper 790 ADV ahahah

    cheers

    @Riverlink - Great info - Thanks for the explanation. I'm going to try a demo one when in for 1st service but sounds like it's all good. Cheers.

    No TT products (officially) for 790 Adventure/R yet...
    Local dealer says they are now on the photo shoot, so soon to be published on web and printed

    790 Aventure (S) = wind buffeting = annoying.

    Anyone done anything to address this yet? I presume no 3rd party screens are available, but what about an MRA Vario deflector? I see there are three styles on their website, any idea which fits the KTM best and whether they actually address the buffeting? I'm 5'10" BTW.

    Thanks.

    On a german forum some use xtra deflectors from universal brands, seem to work fine.
    But: It's very diverse on riders, depending on size and helmet. Try stock for yourself first.
    Don't count on others or me - beside i'll stick with the small screen in low position, nearly no Autobahn for my 790R ;)

    Have you tried the lower screen from the R model? It is plug & play and reasonably expensive for an OEM part.

    Have not tried, though have heard some non-r riders do prefer it. Personally I'd favour something a little larger as my first point of call, but willing to buy the small OEM screen if I find no solution.

    Thanks

    That was easy for TT
    No wonder they haven’t published the products yet, they are still deciding and thinking how the public will accept the Boxer 790R

    I bet the fuel tank alone is a better crash bar than these crash bars ...
    Would love to see the attachment points

    And looks like the uppers are attached to the crossbar that supports the cockpit? :fpalm
