only about 4-5mm - it is enough, the bike stands as it should.

I agree the airbox is not the most accessible I have encountered, but it is not that hard to get too and service.

Certainly not a reason not to buy a particular bike.

The 1190R works perfectly on fire trails, dirt roads and desert tracks.

If I want to go into real tight shitty stuff, I wont be doing it on the 1190R, i have proper dirt bikes for that!

Horses for courses!!

Depends on how tight and shitty it is sr.

I have tootled along on some single line stuff, its big and heavy but it can handle it.

I hope to dial the suspension up a bit over Christmas and see how it goes getting airbourne over some erosion mounds!

F800GS did a good job until the top shock mount bolt bent! ha ha

Question Oil

Hi Guys

I wanted to ask you, with respect to using synthetic Motorex oil, once the 1000Km service is done how long should an owner wait until he switches to synthetic oil?

Is an oil change on the 1190 easy to do, more than likely I would like to change my own oil and filter.
