Few answers:
graphics had to be removed, that was painful because you have to abrase till the plastic, for this reason now they are above the transparent coating.
The gps mounting braket works perfectly, althought it is in plastic it does not vibrate, well protected by windshield, i would definitely reccomend it
The ktm logo is just a logo image that you can finf on the web, you import in your gps and in the setting you decide what to show at the booth. I do have one for each bike.
The orange parts on the top and bottom of the Zumo are the caps that once removed can be coloured, in this case ktm orange, i do have the equivalents for the other bikes (i know it is silly but i like it)

Silly? NOPE! KTM should call you and your design guy, and hire you to help sell accessories. How many people would shell out an extra $20 to have a KTM branded GPS, when ordering a new GPS. LOTS!

Great bike! I love the attention to detail all over it.

It looks fan-frickin'-tastic.

Where'd you get the KTM-orange handlebars?

No kidding! People pay $200-$300 more for a BMW branded Garmin

Ha. I just spent a half hour on the web searching in vain for the KTM-branded Garmin after seeing this.

Added a Powerbronze screen. Works much better than the original for my 175 cm.

Cool2 partnumber orange handle bar

all, thanks for the compliments

the handlebar is a KTM that I blought from a KTM dealer here in Milan, it's part number is 548.02.001.300/17 - I asked for having an enduro handlebar (like the one of 990) and they suggested this one.

It is 3 cm (1 inch) wider then the original and it is a bit more straight, same high.

It works better (for me) because I prefer a bit larger handlebars that gives me more feeling with open elbows, especially off road.

the covers of the Garmin can be bought in normal colour (grey and/or black) on line and then just a bit of creativity and paint

My designer is a superstar, the graphics have been designed for adapting to the curves and angles of the tank and side part below the seat, we kept KTM and Adventure only on the tank and 1190 on the side like the racing numbers

This is what I mean

Yes but it is a whole lot better and does a whole lot more than the KTM Garmin. Still not worth what BMW sells them for but a very good option.

KTM Rear Rack

Well the KTM branded rear rack showed up today. The install took about 5 minutes. Spacers are screwed into the existing holes on the OEM tail rack and then the rack is secured by putting 4 bolts in the through the rack into the spacers. My wolfman rear tail bag fits it well.

The rear rack cost me $90. I also pulled the KTM tank bag and put my wolfman enduro tank bag on. The KTM bag with the Rox risers installed its a PITA to refuel.
