1190 Adventure Graphics Now Available

They just became available here in the US. It's the same graphics that are currently on the 1190 including the back panels. I ordered a set as my new paint set is almost complete.

Cost was $170.00

I have the BDCW kit, the light is really bright, but I don't have anything to compare to except for the high beam.

You have to use the SR lights; I made the mistake of buying the E series and there's not enough clearance for the suspension. Even with the SR kit you can't raise the fenders. I also wasted some money on the Skene IQ-175, which isn't compatible with the SR series.

Wiring is simple, but if you want to do a clean job you have to strip off all the molding and remove the headlight and fuel tank.

And here are some pictures of my install: 1190 standard, givi crash bars, rigid industries sr series 6" combo led light bar, Piaa crash bar light mounts:






Since the light bar doesn't hang below the crash gaurd, there's no concern with clearance when the suspension compresses - still, it's tucked right under the snout quite nicely and protected, out of harm's way just in case...

You may want to reach out to him to see if he will sell you just the brackets and source your own light. As for the acc wires, ktm is kind enough to provide additional electro connections (one set up front and one set at the rear). The one I tapped into is switched power so when the ignition is off, the acc1 wire goes dead. This is ideal for lighting and I used it to trigger a relay since the amperage rating of that acc1 connection is too low to run the light I'm using. The relay itself will require to be wired to the battery itself for power (with a fused circuit), ground (at the battery or the ground post just in front), I out wire from acc1 and a high amperage 12v output to power the lights themselves. I can provide a wiring diagram if you want...

Here's a link to the blackdog solution:

What do you mean graphics set? Do you mean the original decals / logos that ktm clear coats over or are you talking about alternative graphics?

The crash bar mount is the best option. My main concern is if these lights bars could be used in trafic. I have 5 pairs of HID lights in my truck and 95% of time I use only one. So over doing it is not the trick but waist of money.
I'll think I go with Rigid or that 50Cal led bar.

Another option is HID. I had an amazing result on my 990S. Seeing shadows during the daytime is amazing! Bright as the sun and avoids extra weight of the crashbar and aux lights.

What colour are you painting the 1190?

Have they made them yet so they can be dimmed? I really like the Rigid products but I need to be able to run them with my low beam.

I like this idea, bit i think for bikes, you want the beams to be a little off center; focusing more on the side vision for cornering. I would want to see if there's a pot hole or other obstruction during a maneuver/turn.

Unless this bar gives you the ability to angle the side bulbs a bit; or does it just throw a very wide pattern?

The black dog solution mounts to the forks so lighting turns with you. Mine is mounted to the bar so it doesn't move but it is the combo unit - providing distance output in centre and flood lighting at the sides so I can spot the glowing eyes of animals to the sides.

Use something like a Skene relay/dimmer circuit, triggered by your high beam switch (full power with high beam), and a programmable (off to full power in 10% increments) for low beam. Here's how I used a Skene IQ-175 to control my aux LED lights.

Unless you're going reeeeeaaaaalllly slow the lighting turns opposite the direction of travel!
