Me too.



Found the white hand guards which came with the HDB setup which I moved to the new bike before selling the 990.

I hear ya, mate. As a one-man show at the moment, if I go anywhere on the bike, during the week, I need to lug the laptop and peripherals. Always in a US-20 or 30, unless it's a short hop, then gear goes in my R30 backpack.

Thanks for flying the Kriega flag!

My sentiments precisely. Took a while, but now I'm all

1190R for largely slab (the missus thinks the 990 is bad-ass, but has floated the idea of something 'smoother' for long 2-up trips, so she's well and truly stitched herself up there ), with the 990 for the messy stuff. Just gotta find the $$$$$ now, I guess...

Nice! Is that the KTM Powerparts tank bag? How do you like it? My Orange 1190 is coming in March and this is one of the first things I'll throw on. I assume I'll want something that's easily removable, to take inside or to pump gas.

I like it, it is basically the same bag I had on my 950 for 10 years. I am going to put some quick connects on it for gas filling duties. The rear has them but not the front.

Same here. I saw the TT showcase bike on the cover of ADVRider Magazine (or whatever it is) and it looks good. Though I'm trying to talk my dad into selling his 172hp at the tire R1 to me...

Ah money money money. Shit I have to pay my mortgage tomorrow.

Installed a 0.50 oil jet and my uni pre filter arrived, which I will fit later on.

Well my front 908 RR is pretty sad looking from all my road riding and hard on the brakes coupled to the soft front springs, (That is in the works to be sorted)
So I decided to flip the front tire around and wear the knobs off the other side for a bit.

And as long as I was there I could address the PO's neglect of the spokes.
They were in a pretty bad state.



I started off with the grid emery on the right and finished up with a soft cloth and polish. In between I used some #1 ScotchBrite/Norton to work away the mess.



The home center carries Norton branded Scotchbrite pads The ones I was using were 3M as is the gridded emery.

Part way through the process:


They get looking pretty nice, though in places the copper plating under the chrome is coming up. I'll have to get some replacement spokes. Not living down by the ocean will help delay a return to this task,



Tire and brake rotors back on, balanced and cleared up,


If I was only doing the spokes it would have been about two hours work. With the tire flip and my piss poor skill lat the 21" wheel changes it was closer to four.
Time to fire up the hot tub and consider my refreshment options.
