Hey Schweitzer and Bundy:

I have the R Seat on my Standard. It just clicks in and actually provides a slightly lower ride and is of course much nicer for Off Road (coming from a 990 it also feels freer / better - but not as comfortable as the 990)

Here's a link for a pic of my bike and seat:

Not sure about the other way around though (i.e. Standard to R)?

A mate of mine has gone the other way...has an R and put a standard seat on it, so it is possible. Not sure if its adjustable still or what the height is compared to stock...

My subframe broke and was replaced under warranty.
None of the others have been confronted with this issue so I don't really see the need to replace all of them.
Good morning. The heat shield has proven that brings no or really few positive results. I drove it as well and the heat is more on the legs than on the seat.

As about the SMT. I do not own an SMT, but i've seen the... wonderful design of the subframe... That in 3 bikes it did not brake it doesn't make me feel safer. In that case we talk about safety. It is not just a turn signal not turning on, its an subframe that could maybe also cause a topcase fall on the road (extreme scenario but everything can happen). Oh and by the way, the case i know... the subframe was never replaced under warranty, so guess who payed it...

Anyway , i do not want to go off topic. I just sometimes feel disappointed when customer has to pay from his pockets the mistakes of a company.

Looks like a great set-up Lord Vader!
What tires are you running?

Good morning to you too!
Sucks that your acquaintance didn't get the subframe replaced under warranty, they schould have.
And yes, KTM probably could do more to the 1190 also.

For me, it's a given that with a first generation new bike, you might expect some issues, even issues that won't be taken care of by the manufacturer.
They should, but experience teaches us they don't.
It's a chance I take knowingly but I do agree that a lot of people don't and that for the money you should get proper gear and great aftercare.

I haven't had any real problems with the heat in 7000kms, nor vibrations or any of that. I hate the sidestand, but that's pretty much it.

That I would love to see. I have been looking at the bikes and only really looked at the standard because of the seat... My better half has gotten used to seeing over my shoulder as we ride... She does not want to go back to looking only either side of me. Dam GS with its step seat... I digress, I would really appreciate a picture of the R with a standard seat! I would also like to know if it is still adjustable as well... Thanks!

There is always the heated ergo seat which will fit either. It is a two parter -separate pillion and rider. Whether it is height adjustable, I don't know.

It is on the regular 1190.
If the standard seat on the R is height adjustable I'm fairly sure so will the regular standard and ergo seat be.
I think they are pretty much all interchangeable.

Yes, Ergo is height adjustable and full (100%) interchangeable with the standards!

I put the powerparts seats on my R, they are super confortable, for the passenger as well.

No, that's the low position.
The high one fits snugly in the cut-out of the tank.

The R with the additional 2 cm of the PP seat and one of the knoby tire is tall, you got to be a gigant to need the higher seat position.
