Your comments kinda show a lack of knowledge regarding off road use of a heavy bike. Calm down and read some more or let us in on the joke because you can't be serious.

So back on topic, has anyone had attempted to fit Woody's 990 wheels on an 1190 yet?

So you can’t mount an offroad rim on the original hub.
The original 990 hub fits without spacers.

1190 Rims

So when you do this pm me and I will buy your 1190 wheels since they are tubeless and they will work on my 990

Would explain why he feels he needs 150hp to ride around London's 30mph limits, bit of an inferiority complex?

You did all get the bit about him not being British didn't you, just saying.

Not riding around London I actually commute with my wife everyday coming from Kent to London tooks me 30-45 mins. I used to have a 2012 ZZR 1400 197hp , 150 hp means comfort for me . When you two up you really don't mind that. And I am not only commuting also ride weekends two up touring . London's 30 mph limit? It's U.K speed limit mate not only London just letting you know so people go to work with GS adventures, Ducati panigale s. scooters are a joke and no body respects them.

London got a limo bike service fjr1300 ! If you are good at riding the size of the bike doesn't really matters and the engine does matters and makes it more relax riding and torque is really works with two up.

In Knightsbridge we have got ferraris,Bugatti, and even ktm Race car. Do they need them NO! But if you can afford it is nice to have. Or you can ride one of them electric cars it depends on your choice.

A bit below the belt

In fairness I use my 990R as my daily ride, like Tan I don't own a car and find it a really good commuter around Santiago traffic. Not as manoeuvrable as a Duke 200 or a scooter perhaps, but like the man says it does have presence and you get drivers attention with the lights, size/height and the racket it makes (with Akras on!)

I was having a good look the other day, with a view to doing it the other way round, as I am not much of an off roader, bit of green laning but not really hard core and I thought the tubeless rims would be nice, although I am not sure that a set of Alpinas might not be as good or better and at less cost.
Either way, the hubs are not the same, it looks like the hubs could be laced to the rims but it doesn't look like a straight swap.

and Tancakar you are complete penis.

I think the second point was to indicate that as somebody British he wishes to disassociate himself and the rest of the British on here from somebody who is obviously such a cock!!
Having a point to make is one thing being a prick about how you say it is another.

Joe Pichler

Joe Pichler, a photographer who has travelled the world on many different KTM models (640 Adventure, 950 Adventure and 990 Adventure), received one of the first 2013 1190R models from the KTM factory. If memory serves me correctly, swapping out the 1190R's tubeless wheels for KTM tubed tires and wheels from his previous travels on 9XX Adventures was among his first modifications before departing for Africa.

Joe has a thread on ADVrider with some amazing photos on his African travels.

Why on earth did Pydon put a set of woodies wheels on his 2013 450 R dakar bike? When the bike came with perfectly good set off road wheels....Just crazy.

Still at least he made up for the obvious bad decision by coming 46th in the worlds hardest enduro event for bikes....

What like stock tyres, clutch slave, fuel pump, bash plastic plate, sidestand location, rear rack, headlight, etc....

The std rims are made from monkey metal, at least on a 990 you have a tube to keep you going if you ding it. On a 1190....I reckon it has to be the priority upgrade if you are going offroad.
