Moving bars back..

The stock bar height is too low to stand comfortably for more than a few minutes so I need to resolve this. Perhaps just raising up by 1" would do the trick but I'd like them to come back a tad too which I why I purchased a set of Rox Risers.

Thoughts? Experiences?
Did you resolve this - I am still looking for a way to move the bars back an inch or two.. I used a length of 3/8ths mild steel bar stock to lower my pegs an inch which worked well.

I put on Rox's, and they are fine. The only one that was slightly worrying was the brake line at FULL LOCK left turn. I rotated the banjo fitting to alleviate some of that. It's fine. I think.

You can slightly bend the hard brake line upwards to gain a little more slack...

Hello. I am planning to buy some adventure boots and since i remember how the boots damaged the color of the frame on my enduro bike, i can imagine the same is going to happen on the Adventure as well.

I was wondering if KTM or any other company sells protectors for the frame. Something like this:

My boots have scratched the paint off my subframe on the left side already. The right side my boot rests against the rear master cylinder cover, which is plastic and seems to hold up well.

I bet it is going to happen on mine as well. So i try to avoid this from happening. I thought of a vinyl decal if i cant find anything else.

I picked up some orange vinyl at a sign shop and used it on the frame of my 990 SMR until I found the black plastic guard that zip ties on. It was identical to the orange on the frame, you couldn't even see it. Same vinyl I used to block out the headlight and taillight when I did track days. Planning to stop in again this week and pick up some more for the 1190R.

Mounted some HVMP bar end weights on the bike today. I have used these on other bikes and they really have helped

Mine don't vibe at all, nada. Maybe it's the HTB hand guard setup I use.

One of the economical seat solutions too.
Just ordered mine .5in taller in black suede and black fiber.
Put a hole through my heated seat with a branch and this is cheaper than getting it fixed. Also sick of always having to switch off the heated seat every time I start the bike. Thanks for the idea.

I really like the look of that Renazco.
I will let you all know in a couple weeks if the Seat Concepts "R Seat" is any good. I have not had time to ride more than an hour or two on it, but will be on a multi-day trip next week. Foam still feels way too soft for me, and there is not much change from stock shape.
Renazco looks like what I want, big and flat!

+1 on the peg lowering.
Did something similar to get pegs down and forward a bit using some odds and ends I had laying around from K1300S MFW Vario peg adapters and arms, and SW Motech footpegs, but stayed with the KTM pins and clevis. Adapter-to-arm joint is serrated and can be moved in 45 degree increments, footpeg can be rotated to any angle for a good fit with bottom of the boot, then locked down.
Got some much needed relief for the knees, it is much easier to stand now, and it reduced the need for a bar height increase (still went with 20mm risers though). Pegs are still well up from the bottom of the skid plate.
