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.

There are no dog bones (on the R - suspect that the std model is the same). The shock bolts to the cross member that you can see in sleepy owls photo above (the ali piece just under the wiring loop between the arrows) and the bottom of the shock bolts directly to the swing arm. So no solution there. It is probably a PDS shock.

Yep!
Need lots of space for a pocketable bear, Vodka box and a small red nuclear command center over here.

Thanks for clarifying this.

Will this fit the 2014 standard with crash bars, or should I be getting the R-model for that?

You should ask for the R-model (same price)
Cheers,

I'm thinking in possibly getting the new Shad SH39, but I've read it's limited to 120 Km/h. It's not really compatible with a 1190.
IgorBorisenko, do you notice any speed limits on yours?

I had a Honda Blackbird (CBR 1100XX...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_CBR1100XX) for a few years. It was a beautiful and fast bike. I decided I needed luggage, so got two GIVI side cases and a top case for the beast. It turned it into a very dangerous tank-slapper machine.

My engineering/physics explanation was that the weight I had added was behind the rear wheel axle, causing the center of gravity of the machine to shift dramatically towards the rear from the balanced bike that it was. This lightened the front end, who's geometry was upset. On fast acceleration, unexpected tank slappers were fairly common, with the bike trying to spit me off. I'd worry more about that then the speed restriction.

I believe wind plays a huge factor as well. a friends FJR works fine with a heavy load in the saddle bags, but add the top box and it develops a wobble no matter if it is loaded or not?

As far as I know all the topboxes, including OEM ones have this or close speed limit. (givi claims 130) Can not test this setup yet due to the season here.
I expect it to be OK up to say 160. For more I'd expect stability issues.
But, In sense of aerodynamics my guess is that an Alu square top box of 40l will be a worse case than this 48l plastic round shaped

Finally got round to fitting the Zumo. This has got to be the easiest bike I have fitted it to.

Took the time to update the splash screen image too

thanks DC

The bike came with the OEM mount so I used that. Feels a bit flimsy though so double tightened everything!

Wont have time to test it this week unfortunately.

Sorry if this is subject has been covered, there's a lot of posts...
I just went to my dealer to have the Bosch MSC installed. They say it has been pulled off KTM's servers because the software presented issues with the speedometer readout in some way. New software should be available in April. I'm definitely waiting until it's right before I have my bike messed with an pay for it too!

My 2013 1190 also needed several updates, both software and hardware. They mentioned the sidestand (I already had a new spring for that) and something about the centerstand. Not quite sure what else but I'm having everything done at the same time.

Can give full details somewhere in April in case anyone is interested.
