Question Help With Panniers

Hi Guys,

Just got my new grey adventure today and I LOVE it! Thanks to all the information on here it really helped me narrow down my choices and put my first KTM in the driveway. I'm moving from a toured up VFR 800 - I can't beleive how much more comfortable it is!
Hoping someone can help me with something. I purchased the KTM touring bags with the bike that fit to the standard mounts - but I didn't get my dealer to show me how to remove them - and sadly I can't figure it out. I turn the key to the left and the little KTM end cap pops out and unlocks but I can't get the bags off the bike. What's the secret?

Thanks for your insight.
Shawn

The end cap pops out but pull on it also to ensure it is fully unlocked then slide the bag to the rear of the bike until the bag slot piece on the bottom front of the case clears the plastic/rubber pocket near the passenger foot rest area. Once that is done tilt the bag up, pull the front of the case towards you and slide it forward and off. Sounds difficult but once you do it a time or two its very easy.

Good onya Champ, great to get the first service out of the way.
Now the real fun begins... 5k and upwards give it a go..
My bike has 5,800 Km's. I'm riding to Bright Victoria on Friday for 3 nights.
After that I will let the shop do another oil and filter.

Thank you very much! I got them off with your instructions. I was being too gentle.

I think they will fit fine. I have a universal mount ktm bag on my R and the fit is great.

Question Windscreen

Well I've managed to get 400km on the new bike yesterday. So far I'm loving it!!

One exception - The turbulance and noise with the standard windscreen in any position above 80km. It's a must fix situation. I had already ordered and paid for the tall KTM screen when I purchased the bike (I'm 6'4") - but It's on back order until July.

I've tried to read all the posts on this - and the general consensus is that the KTM tall screen it too is loud and still creates turbulance and buffets. Any tall peeps out there that have found it works - or should I cancel my order.

I've spent about 3 hours trying to track down a windscreen that is stock - and finally found a Puig touring clear in stock in Montreal and have ordered it. I will report back in week once I receive. I couldn't get the one with the added spoiler - out of stock everywhere.

I have also been looking at this new Givi screen - but haven't noticed any reports on the forum about this model.

http://www.sporttour.com/upload/Givi...windscreen.jpg

I've used Givi before and had good results. Has anyone tried this screen?

(I think it's much nicer looking then the Givi double screen)

Here's the description:
The GIVI D7703ST windscreen for the '13-'14 KTM 1190 Adventure is 14.6" high and 16.1" wide, 1.6" taller than the stock windshield. Designed to provide more protection than the stock screen while minimizing buffeting. The D7703ST mounts in place of the stock windscreen, no additional hardware is needed.
Finish: Clear
Includes Givi Part #: D7703ST

Thank you for your input.
-Shawn
