Not sure what your inseam is, at 34" I was on the balls of my feet. Once the big girl starts going over there's no stopping her. All you can hope for is a gentle let down. Kinda like dating in high...

Sw-Motech

My Sw-Motech Barkbusters fit perfect and were from a kit specifically for the 1190. Robust enough for me. Something else is going to break before these do and it will probably be more expensive....

SC observations

I guess I would concur. After a 200 mile ride I was ready to get off. Not much improvement. The taller seat did help the ergos some . Also taller seats off road make it hard to dab. Dropped my bike...

wired up to wrong ACC

I'm betting it got wired to the 1 amp ACC rather than the 10 amp ACC. it is fused in the ECM and will reset after a bit.

I have the cruiser model. Fits ok and I used it on my 950. It is certainly better than stock for the long haul . I have nothing else to compare it to. I would rather have a taller seat, like the seat...

Holan

My top box is a Holan 45L. It will hold a Nolan 103 size 2x easily. Drawbacks are that there is no quick release and the top lid flys into your back at high speeds from the vacuum created (unless it...

Steering head bearing

I suspect the steering head bearing may need to be snugged again. The OEM TA2"s on my 1190R did the same until I tightened the bearing. Now with new TKC 70's the weave is back at 120. The only way...

OK, looks like I need to get a couple bolts and probably washers. It makes me wonder how it could make it thru a QA check. I wondered if it was a 2014 "feature".
