I'm amazed anyone posts build threads beyond bolting the same old shit to the same old bikes when people (who aren't building anything novel themselves) just piss all over them on the internet. I...

I ride mine year-round in rainy Oregon with no water problems.

When you fit it make very sure that the TB linkage doesn't rub on the left side bottom flange of the plate. Mine did (only when...

You shouldn't need to shorten the side stand. I have 19/17 wheels for my ABS '07 adv, its not a problem. I run the Conti Trail Attack 2's & they're great.

I bought the Triumph stepper motor, it is the same as the KTM part. It was an easy swap.

These guys have physically made something novel, ambitious, and daring. They didn't do the default OC dream and they weren't intending to.

If it helps anyone I also had a map made by Nels at 2wheeldynoworks for my '07 990 with Rott intake & Wings slip-ons. I don't know if it matters, but there's a G2 throttle tamer cam installed on my...

I put a 120 19" on front & 170 17" on the rear (Woody wheels.) the bike handles nearly as well as my 690 SM did- it totally transforms the feel of the Adv. The TA2's were very sticky even when new....
