Tyre choices and spare parts

I believe you could install a second valve on the second hole. This way you will have the choice of using tubed tyres. In this case you could cancel the OEM off center valve all together.

For fueling I would suggest a backup fuel filter and fuel pump. A clutch slave could be waiting for you somewhere on your 30 kkms. Water pump cold be also an issue. I believe all the above are unchanged from 990 so you could capitalize on gained experience with these parts.
Cheers.

Hi

This mr. funnel thing is to big for me. But since it's well known over there I maybe get it when I need it. Good to know that something like this is available.

Greetings

There are hundreds (500+) of 990ADV`s here in Chile so as Goti rightly points out there is a good range of tyres available, and most of them are tubeless. I reckon the std (for a 990) Pirelli Scorpions are the best all round bet for the tarmac and gravel roads here in Chile. There are not many places you will be able to stretch the 1190`s legs fully to 260kph anyway.

I am not sure about the possibility of putting a tube in if the hole is offset, that sounds dodgy to me. I have already had issues on the rear with the valve detaching from the tube. In an emergency if you couldnt do a tubeless fix you could always drill the rim centrally in order to fit a tube, but that would mean going tubed forever as you would lose the seal.

In any case, Santiago awaits you with a warm welcome, just let us know when you are on approach. PM me or Goti.

Cheers, and good luck amigo

There is not much tyre availability down south unless you get them sent from Santiago (and you cant do this into Argentina, and tyre choice there is much more limited). Fully loaded up and with 150hp on tap I reckon the only rear tyre that will stand a serious chance of going the distance would be a Heidenau K60, which is tubeless. I would recommend you fit one before you come and you can also buy those here in Santiago, but only from time to time. They suck on the tarmac though in my opinion as they square off and the handling goes strange. Decisions, decisions...oh what fun!
I think I ask Heidenau just for sponsorship. ;-) It's a German Company anyhow....

Trust me it isn't, the smallest version is taking only 1/10th of the space of a medium size tankbag...there are many sizes to choose from and they'll save the day for you...unless of course you are really determined to be "adventurous"...

G'Day,

No worries fitting a Tube Type Pirelli Scorpion Rally in the front of the 1190 R (hole is not offset). Just pulled the tyre pressure sensor out and poked the valve stem through. Finding decent tubeless rears seems to be easier, the Mitas E-09 Dakar comes in a 150/70 18 and fits up nicely.

Good luck with your trip.

Cheers,

Danny

Moin

just got sponsorship from Heidenau. They will sent me two front and 4 back tires for the trip. Just wonder how I get them shipped to Chile! Have to hide them in the big box... ;-)

It will be the K60 Scout. Should be good enough for now.

Yes - I quess they will do for the start. Should be good for at least 36000 kilometers. I am thinking about to build some depots in Brazil and maybe Peru.
;-) I don't want to carry them all the way round.

Bye the way - got another sponsorship call from Touratech today. The will adjust my bike with almost all the gear they have for it. I don't really need all of it - but well - the best parts are free parts. To say it with the words of Goti.

By the way 2 - if someone has some storage place left for the tires around Santiago, Lima or a place in Brazil. Just let me know. Drinks will be on my bill when I cross by. ;-)

I have an small storage in the apartment building I live, not sure it could take all your tires, we can storage the remaining in the balcony, but these tires will be a bit exposed to the elements.
Maybe we can find a better place -I'll do some calls - but if we can't and you are OK with that, then no problem, you are welcomed to storage them here.
