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.

I doubt the TKC 80 will be better in the dirt. The Kenda has a much stiffer carcass which protects against pinch flats far better than a TKC. I wouldn't run a TKC off road on this bike IMHO. The 908 is definitely better off road, but then again sucks on road in comparison. It does last long though...

Changed the oil and filter - safe to say that the dealer that i bought it from didn't service it!

Do any of you guys have a dedicated thread going for those rebuilds with pics? I need a lot of work done on my 990 and I'm dreading it tbh.

There's this http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=147440
There's the HOW (Hall Of wisdom), that's at the top of Orange crush as a sticky. Look for anything by sakurama, or CJ. There's a buttload more but they are escaping me at the moment.

I trimmed that plastic panel at the lefthand side of the steering tube to reduce the chafing at the ignition wiring harness. It had just nicked a hole through the sheath. What sort of idiot comes up with a design like that? Austrians aren't much better than the Germans.
