Hi Pete,

Below is an outtake from the B&B website. 5mm should do the job!!

Cheers WH


B & B Off Roads Ktm 1190 Bash plate is made from 5mm thick 5083 structural alloy plate. Rear mounts are 5mm stainless steel with a rearward facing lug that rests on the rear frame rail to prevent rotation of the bracket. There are 6 32mm hole in the underside to help flush debris and minimise noise. There is also a rubber damper glued inside to help reduce noise. If so desired b & b off road can supply the bash plate with motofoam to further reduce noise and mud build up. Bash plate can be fitted with or without genuine crash bars. All necessary mounting hardware for this is supplied.

Hi Burren Rider,

Looking at the Touratech site it looks like they only make a riser for the Standard, not the R??

Cheers WH

Woops you obviously worked this out on a later post....

They do look a little 'high' though.

You could also contact Dalby Moto and see if they have anything in the works.

Very high.

Not ideal for serious off road traveling.

A few 1190's in Australia are having big issues with dust getting past the stock paper filter. With a decent ride coming up where I knew there were going to be plenty of bikes and dry powdery conditions, I was starting to get paranoid so I contacted Uni Filter to see how progress was going on their filter kit. They were incredibly good to deal with and managed to get me a pre-production version air freighted in time for the ride.

The kit consists of:

1) Some coarse pre-filters for the intake snorkels




2) A foam gasket for the airbox lid (which seems to be the source of the problem)




3) A decent two stage foam filter (all oiled for maximum dust retention).




I really can't see any dust getting past this setup and the added advantage is that the paper filter won't be around to get wet and dissolve.

I have no affiliation with Uni (apart from using their filters over the past 20 years) but I was amazed at the lengths they went to work out a solution and get it to me in time for the ride. That kind of service is pretty rare these days so no doubt I will be safely using them for another 20 years.

I took some pictures of my friends bike to Finnish forum: http://www.matkaendurot.net/forum/vi...0831&start=390
7000km, airbox first time open.

The UNI filter looks like the part!
People are reporting the same findings in the south African forum

Is it my imagination, or looking at BR's most recent post have they narrowed the frame down compared to the 9X0?

It looks all slim, slinky, and great for knee gripping.



P.S. Love the Unifilter sticker placement!
