You don't "need" any upgrades but for my liking and type of riding, on a Std, I added OEM skid plate, crash bars heated grips and a Barrett slip on exhaust.

I can't say enough good about the Australian made Barrett. It's only $500 delivered, sounds awesome and is ALOT lighter than OEM. Fits R or Std.

So I just bought an Airhawk dual sport seat cushion for my R. My wife and I have been doing some long weekend trips and I've been having some serious problems with my butt. The only thing that keeps me going is my wife gives me messages when I stand up! If I'm not moving much in the seat, things start getting numb fairly quickly. The seat also arches up in the front which gives very little room to my man stuff. I have found that using long microfiber boxers helps , especially keeping my stuff up and away and helps a little with discomfort from chafing (im using 9" boxers from underarmour) but its not nearly enough.

I actually really like the seat when I'm alone since I'm moving around a lot more. Hopefully this Airhawk seat cushion works well when we are 2 up.

Anyone else try one of these?

Foot pegs

G'day Guys

I need to ask you all, Im considering lowering my pegs on my 2014 1190 EDS, I would lower them just one step from standard.

Will I need to also adjust the brake lever and the gear shift as well.
I know there are two adjustements that can be done from stock..

Have any of you done this on your EDS model 1190.
Any input is appreciated.

This bike ticks all of my boxes, certainly not perfect, however im very satisfied ...

No, I put lower pegs on mine and have had No issues with shifting or braking

I wear padded bicycle shorts under whatever I'm wearing for pants. I tried the compression shorts and they just don't do enough. The bike shorts don't add much bulk and aren't visible under pants. They are the 9" type that provide extra cushion plus compression on the legs. Makes a longer trip bareable.
The standing up butt massage is nice too but doesn't really.do much other than feel good

I prefer "Tri-shorts". They are just like bicycle shorts, but the chamois (the butt pad) is much smaller/thinner (so it will dry out faster after the swim of a TRIathlon)

I'm thinking about getting some MotoSkivies, but I think I'd rather have some more cycling/tri shorts to pull double duty.

LED strobe function

Ive seen quite a few videos of the 1190 and the "V" led running light on the front seems to have a strobe function. How do you get this to work? where is it in the menu?
Is it just a European spec?

I tried the moto-skivies for a ride,they definitly werent for me,odd pressure points when riding,and the pads in the back took turns sliding into my crackola each step when walking,strangest sensation and not pleasant what so ever.
Luckily they sold quick like.

I was thinking that may be the case but I didn't think LEDS had a flicker rate( as per fluoro) and thus should not flicker on video.
In any case it would actually be not a bad function if it could be turned on, especially in traffic.

The LED brake lights and DRL's on this bike are both powered by a PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) driver. This is a method of running the LED at less than full light output for various uses, like longevity, and to allow variable brightness.

The result is they turn off and off at a very high rate imperceptible to the human eye but, cameras and sensors can pick up the "flicker".

This actually gives some people headaches (usually LED backlight LCD panels on laptops...), depending on the frequency in use.
