Nice posts, wetting my appetite for an R.

Couple of questions.

Has anyone removed the SAS system and installed blocking plates ?

Can you uncheck the SAS box in TuneECU to disable the SAS, same
as with the 990.
Is there a carbon canister that needs to be removed ?

Is anyone making a decatted header ?

What are people doing to increase intake flow, Rottweiler or others
aftermarket filters ?

Then off course it follows, has anyone had a new map built which
is compatible with TuneECU.

The above will be the first things I'll need to do to a new R, along with
a set of Woody's wheels, 1.85/21 3.50/18.

Max

Ok let me ask, what is your type of riding?
adventure? If so, what do you classify as an adventure ride? touring along the blacktop? Or perhaps hitting the gravel fire roads to a nice destination?

Would you consider taking an adventure bike where you would take a motocross bike?

Frog take a chill pill dude
Why are you looking for a reasonable answer to an unreasonable question.

Some riders like doing monos, to them it part of riding part of the adventure.

You might think it childish and dangerous but they might think that its fuckin cool.

Different strokes for different folks

Frog, you are asking a simple question which has a simple answer, "because its fun.." which has been said a few times already..

So you can ride 'good'.. but no picture of a wheelie, so maybe you have front elevation envy? ;)

So with the ktm when hitting those rocks and stuff you would of came across on your rally.. you didn't try to mono it over to save the front wheel from buckling etc..?

Frog.

You screwed up doing a wheelie so now you're arguing others shouldn't do it.

Following your logic, you should stop riding bikes because some people have died riding bikes.

Or maybe you need to step away from the soapbox?

No video, sorry, but I did it on my own for my own enjoyment at the time. However after nearly killing a couple of girls out on a horse ride (only evading them becuase they knew what they were doing, jumping off and pulling the horses out of the road, thank fuck) I realised how bloody stupid it is.

Not too worried about buckiling the front rim, as It was an Excel 1.60 with a Michelin Dessert on board and tbh we were going quite steady most of the time out there as it we were a long way from any help if it went tits up (do you know where the Sahara Dessert is?), as for the Rallies, it's my first year doing them, and having been passed by a bloke (who beat Cyril Despres on a stage in last years Dakar,) at great speed, I think I know I'm not all that offroad (did you see how many pics the ADV is on its side, so I'll leave the big jumps and heroics to them for the forseable.

I'm bored with this now.

Speed Racer, post up some pics of You doing big mono's offroad on your 1190 over rocks and shite.
Lightweight.......

I dont know if this has already been said, but while on the topic of wheelies, the 1190 in dirt mode still limits wheelie height! It comes up higher that sport mode, but not high enough I think to clear a decent log

KTM 1190 Adventure R: The anatomy of an Off-road Superbike???

This thread started out very nicely with good tips on modifying the 1190 R and some suberb pictures of the bike in its right environment.

But what do we get?

One guy who wheelies and one who used to, and both think the other is an a-hole.

Not to mention a whole page of pictures of an 990 in the desert and an R1 on the track!

Hey Burren Rider, where did you go?
