You've never seen an original black and white Garmin Street Pilot? Came out close to 20 years ago.

Street Pilot III was a huge breakthrough with a color screen in 2003. LINK

Things have come a long way in the last 10 years.

The design of GPS is based partly on similar ground-based radio-navigation systems, such as LORAN and the Decca Navigator, developed in the early 1940s and used by the British Royal Navy during World War II.

before i had gps GPS i ran a power supply from the front brake light switch, Ive always done it that way, but im not one for keeping bikes long so ive always wanted to be able to put everything back to stock quickly, i also used bikes from work all the time and need to be able to wire it up sat night, ride all day sunday then put it back on the showroom floor monday morning : )

Great idea. LOL. It might block some of the wind that the windscreen doesn't.

Windscreen, possible solution

I was bothered by buffering with the standard Adventure screen. Bought myself the touring screen, which were slightly better. This weekend I cut the stock screen to look more like the R screen and give better view when offroad. First short test drive was a huge success. No helmet buffeting at all up to 125 kph.
When I have tested it more I will give measurents of the screen so others can try. I'm 183cm/6ft. I prefer wind at my chest/helmet over buffeting, not to mention the supermotard look :)
It's 0 deg.C outside, so not much riding these days. The bike really is a slow starter in these temperatures. It need a better battery!!

The good...
- Standard seat is really comfy for long journeys- better than the Renazco on my 990!!
- Standard screen is great- we were cruising at 90-100mph!
- good acceleration, really strong!
- very smooth engine at cruising speed!

The bad...
- Bike weaves at high speeds- feels very unstable- anyone else have this? Maybe I'm expecting too much considering it has a 21" front wheel, but my 990 didn't weave like this thing! I had s puncture on the rear tyre so maybe I've messed up the tyre from riding it flat?
- melted a whole into my trousers on the pipe!

Overall I'm happy, but that high speed stability issue is quite dangerous, so would be interested in others comments...

I was riding up to 110 today (keep in mind the speedo is off so I was probably going 100) and it was very stable!

Oil Change w/KTM skid Plate

Has anyone come up with an ingenious way of changing the oil and filter on the KTM1190 with minimal disassembly of the KTM factory skid plate?

I would like to hear that it can be done with an oil catcher and just the removal of the two screws of the front skid plate bracket and the two screws of each rear skid plate bracket.

Thanks!

Just two bolts and it's off.

Just installed mine today, and after that, do not wish to do it again. So, I plan to make a cutout for the front drain/bolt/screen, the oil filter and rear bolt will clear okay.

There´s two newly edited pages in the wiki, for the clutch and for the airbox, as well as a new template (1190Rider template) on which the new pages are based. If someone has available some good pics of the airbox (open and closed) as well as of the snorkels, pleased add them to the wiki at http://ktm1190adv.wikispaces.com/space/content and I will integrate them into the article.
Any feedback on template etc. is appreciated.
Thanks, cheers
Chris

Getting naked

Not as much time as I would like to tear into the bike to get it built up for our "product testing" trip to Baja, but a good start.



KTM did a few strange things with the bodywork but not too bad. Definitely more of a "street bike" design in terms of bodywork. Bummer the tank has to be pulled to access the airbox (just like the 950SE) but not a huge surprise. Definitely easier than dealing with the twin tanks in my opinion.

Also - one important discovery I found. Not sure if this has been covered elsewhere. Been a little busy to keep up with the thread. If you are going to install something other than street tires, make sure you have some tubes handy. I spooned up a set of Karoo3s (which are tubeless tires) and the rear tire would NOT hold air. Leaked rapidly from the spokes. From what I am told, unless there is sufficient air pressure to hold the rubber membrane against the rim, the tires will leak air. I believe I had about 30 lbs of air but the rear was flat in no time. The front seems to be holding air fine.

Also, the valve stem / tire pressure monitor will need to be removed and you will need to put an M10 washer under the nut for the valve stem as the hole in the rim is enlarged to accommodate the sensor. Just a suggestion.
