    After finishing stage/evo 4 on my 950 "rally" build, giving up my 1290SE build, selling my 1290AdvR I bought a 790R last year. Rode it stock this summer, to feel its potential. Liked the bike, and will stopp evolving my 950 and start modyfing my 790R. I falled in love with the proto790, and my aim is to get it something like that. So far I have woodies 1.85 in front, Coober ECU, and DIY tower/padholder with a PUIG screen for Honda NX. work in progress is tailtidy, exhaust that dont look stupid without rear pegs, higher bar, bar risers, frame/tower reinforcement, seat, Xplor pro and Lipo Batt. Skidplate, and single disc conversion is on the list also. Will post some photos during the build.

    Nice! In your next photo shoot, take one directly from front =)

    My favorite was the one with the hacksaw - are you going to leave tail like that? I'm looking for options on tail tidy but I feel that is a bit too 'supermoto' and blinkers will not last offroad, also tail light could use a bit more protection..

    For you I recommend power parts tall seat - it's just a no brainer for this bike :thumb

    Hi, The tailtidy, (and most of the rest) is just prototyping at the moment. Will use the DRZ tail light for sure, but not finished with blinker setup. Have ordered the High "grip" seat from seat consept. Im abroad for the next 10 days or so, but will post some more photos when I get home. There is also some photos here https://www.facebook.com/MCadventureNorway/ Clicked your post. That must be the holy grail of 790 building. Still reading, but I'm so impressed. You are my new 790 hero. Thanks!

    hi roy,
    thanks for posting. i will curiously follow your new thread like the last one.
    i like specially the above picture showing the hacksaw sticking in the rear of your bike.
    doing the same with my T7 by the way but have no own thread for my build, just posting couple pics.

    cheers, keep those pictures coming,

    Think my "light" tower brace would be more than strong enough to fix/support my boken brackets. I'm almost anal about weight, so I was really happy when i found a titan bolt (leftovers from my 950 diet project) 2020-02-05 18.32.06.jpg 2020-02-05 19.05.12.jpg 2020-02-22 15.49.49.jpg 2020-02-22 15.55.08.jpg 2020-02-24 18.43.08.jpg 2020-02-25 20.12.21.jpg 2020-02-25 20.12.54.jpg 2020-02-25 20.19.18.jpg
