The headers are from the GRP 2-1 system. I like the rally look of the 690 and 450 rally pipes so fished around on ebay for the can. It sounds nice a little deeper not than the Grp can.

Took the 1190 out with 5 other guys on GS's and KTM's and had a great time doing about 320 miles of dirt roads and twisty's in the mountains above Santa Barbara in the rain and fog! The bike and I are covered with dirt, and I am amazed the way this thing performs on the dirt roads and wet roads.

Didn't know that. No wonder so many do it. I guess I will have to do it as well.

Washed the dirt off the 1190, and got the 450 ready to put the serviced forks and shock on and got new tires and will be using the tubliss system to run them with out tubes!

Getting it back together

Ok...all service done (oil, filter, coolant, valves adjusted, pads, front rotors, fork seals and a front tire). Working on getting it back together.

Anyway, there you have it. Some pics of the tire now (as they are in the video). Front can go another 1k and has little to no cupping compared to the 908 front. Rear has plenty of rubber left, but little tread:
Thanks for the update, looks tempting for a front tire, not so much for a rear. A TKC-80 or 908 might be better in the dirt and a K60 (or similar) is probably better on road without compromising too much.
