Right. All 2013 sidestands will be replaced by KTM. My own bike it's already in the shop for this replacement.

The stock peg height is adjustible and Pivot Pegs would help with those snowshoes. I think you are a perfect candidate for a custom seat with a buildup. Maybe a Russell Day Long or Rick Mayer.
Nope not 6'10" just 6'8", so that's 80".......40" of me is legs and 40" body. Also don't want a Day Long seat, I like to ride off road too much and that seat would get in the way of that. I have read about the Touratech tall seat. Has anyone tried one yet? I have Pivot pegs and lowering pegs on my other bike and really like them, but haven't found anything for the 1190 yet.

Life can be so unfair... I'm 5'9", desperatly wanting an R but struggling with the height of the beast. 6'8", you dont need all that (except if you are a professional basketball player)! And your struggling with your machine because you dont have enough leg room! So let's make a deal: give me 3" of those 40" legs so we can both fit perfectly on our bike.

I'll take 4" of those 40" legs (I'm 5'8" and- I wanted an R before Mesopotamia even heard of the bike!!)

Did you look at Black Dog's pegs? It will lower the pegs down 1/2 inch and they're nice and
wide. Just installed them on mine this weekend.

Are they talking about Locul's bike?

There’s a bloke in Finland who’s done it, and he’s turned his into practically a full-on Dakar bike(!)

Yeah-- the worst of both worlds poor suspension for regular road riding made worse by a low traction wet weather tire with stiff sidewalls. Who wouldn't want that?

I'd think that unless you actually, you know, take the bike off-pavement, knobbies on something like this would be great for..... having cell phone pictures taken at cafes and maybe even getting a blog posting.

So, SUCCESS!

battery maintenance charging

Can anyone confirm that the battery can or cannot be charged/maintained via the cigarette accessory plug.
And does the bike have a canbus system?
About to order a new charger and want to get the most convenient connector.

Yes it can be charged through the accessory plug. It is live all the time.

The LED lights are Model 50 from MonsterADV. Just put them on yesterday so I have not gotten them adjusted yet. I am using the billet mounts they sell, minus the small black part screwed to it. Just attached the light right to their mount. The lights are well protected by the crash bars, at least as far as street riding goes.

Really getting into this bike. All I need to do is raise the bars and I will be set.
Hi i have the same bike with KTM crash bars and the same mounts but lights from DDM tuning. how did you wire them with a direct battery lead and dimmer on/off switch or did you find a spare hot lead with the amp capacity (5 or more) to handle them. i am still struggling to decide how to mount top side they are in the fall down zone inside on the vertical rise they are a bit low i am thinking but protected in a crash....
thanks for your reply.
