The 2014s have heat shield foil under the seat, maybe you can get your dealer to get a kit for the seat.

This is a free upgrade along with other updates on the 2013 model.

1190 r Heated seat height reduction

My quest goes on to reduce the height of the heated seat.

It is a sealed unit so cannot be trimmed down

chicoblanco posted this picture some pages back. I am away so cant get the side on picture I really need. Where I have put the arrows is where the seat sits on the frame. there is room to drill a hole a below the ones that hold the black round plastic parts. My question really is would this reduce where the seat sits or is it restricted by other factors. I will get some side on pictures when I get back at the weekend.



Any other ideas are welcome!
Thanks in advance

Whaooo MAN! Bad idea imo... Don't drill a part of the frame (Warrenty!!! ). There are the silver bolts on the fuel tank which mount the seat too. So you wouldn't get the seat lower if you just reinstall the rubber rolls on the frame. I think it is easier, if you really wanne go for this to cut of the peaces on the seat.If you fail than its only the seat and not the frame.

Why don't you go to a proper seat maker, make your specific seat and integrate a heating foil!!!

SHAD topcase

So, i've been looking for a nice topcase to be able to store two helmets and not to bee way too ugly with it
It was supposed to be a citi or short tours options. Not intended for hard adventure riding or any offroad.
Considered the Givi Trecker ones, but could get the SHAD 48 with the included adaptor plate for half the Givi's price.
The case quality is very nice. All operations with the key are fine and the handle comes in handy.

The problem starts when you want to mount the adaptor plate to the KTM rack. There is no single hole that would match.
The stock 4 case mounting holes available are the strongest and best to use. The front ones are impossible to reach as the case will interfere with pillion handles. So i drilled two holes in the adaptor to match with the back stock case holes of the KTM rack. And with some custom triangular shaped washers grabbed the front part using SHADS hardware.
All in all it ended being a pretty clean setup. My only concern is that the case stands out a bit to much for my taste and only time will tell if the construction will hold on
Will get the back rest today

Drilling sounds like a terrible idea. Besides the warranty issues, it is just dangerous as you might be weakening the frame. Also, most likely you will find out that your idea doesn't work as planned, and then you're stuck with a ruined bike.

Why not lower the bike with different dog bones?
Many short V-Strom Riders have gone that route, with much success.
It is also a reversible solution, when you want to sell the bike in the future.
There are a number of aftermarket Dog Bone manufacturers, try contacting them.

EDIT: This is the V-Strom Wiki page for dog bones, but the idea should be similar, and the different vendors are likely to be the same ones for KTM.

Just for anyone who is deliberating. I was up at the dealer today so tried the different options. I am 5ft 10in with a 32 inch in-seam.

On my R model

Heated seats --- I'm on tiptoes and dont feel confident
Normal R seat ---- on balls of feet
Street model seat----- perfect for me, just about flat footed.

Have ordered the street model seat and will see if I can get the pillion heated seat working independently. Would have thought this may be a difficult task when I see the amount of wiring and connections involved!
If your not comfortable wiring it up yourself, why don't you ask your dealer to wire it for you. My dealer would do it in a heart beat. Of course they would charge me shop rates, but it may be worth it to you.

Nicely done Igor.

Curiosity makes me ask, why not simply lock the helmets to the bike, rather than use the huge top case? I realize the case puts them out of the weather and secures them, but wow, that's a huge topcase. Do be careful about how much weight you put in there. It's not uncommon for top case mounts to break.

You may end up needing to make a long adapter plate from aluminum to secure the Shad plate to the KTM mounts more solidly with better support.

Take a beautifully proportioned, aesthetically pleasing bike that's great fun to ride, then add a giant tumor to the back, so it looks like the hunchback of Notre Dame…. Don't get it:

Sometimes you want form, sometimes function. Can't always get both. Sometimes you need utility above all.

Isn't it good that you can set it up like this for your commute 5 days a week, then go soft luggage, and knobbies to take it on the white rim, etc?

These bikes are DUAL-sport. no?

If it meets his needs, it's all good. Not my thing, but that doesn't mean it's bad.
