My '11 990R seat was an inch or two higher than my 1190R. The 1190 seat seems a bit more comfortable but I haven't ridden more than 100 miles at a time yet so not sure?

I don't like having my ignition switch not being vertical so I don't want to rotate both parts if I don't have to - but maybe I'll get over that.
I tried separating the two but you have to rotate the mirror/brake fairly far forward if you don't, or separate the two parts by about 3 mm horizontally (the size of the tab). I was just fuzting around for a bit last night when I looked at this - didn't spend more that a few minutes. I've set aside all day today to work on fit issues and to get my GPS and Escort mounted and powered. Supposed to be blowing 65 mph out today so that should keep me inside working instead of out riding.

I'm 6'4" (34" inseam). My 990 had a built up Renazco seat and was perfect for my size (2" bar risers on a wider higher ProTaper). The 1190R seems lower to me but the foot pegs are higher and more forward than my aging knees like. Also, the cut-out stock seat is impossible for me, so James is making a new level seat which will be higher and not too wide between the knees. Will look something like this (not my bike):







I have a wider, higher ProTaper for the 1190R which will go on when my heated grips come in. I may try some foot pegs which are about 1/2" lower.

Rearrange the venting from the gas tank.... two vents (one is in, one is out) T them on top of the tank and drain to left side of engine with other tubes.
Cap off the PCV valve hose nipples. But leave the electrics plugged into the PCV valve or you'll get a fault code. (ask how I know!)
That's it.... lots of room now in the tail for tools plus.
I'm new to this "canisterectomy" thing. I pulled out the cannister and mount then couldn't find any electrical connections to the cannister. Started to trace the hoses under the tank but I just spend all day working on getting my electronic gismo's hooked up so not really ready to tackle another project. Anyway, started the bike then removed the smaller hose from the side. Bike still runs - no errors. Then I unplugged the bigger hose from the center. Still not errors. Turned off bike. Restarted bike. Still runs, no errors. I plugged up the two hoses. Is that it? Can't be that easy. Do we not have the same systems in place if we're outside of CA? Fuggit - I'm going for a ride.

One hose is the vent from the gas tank.....do not plug...

It looks like your pegs might be installed in the higher position. You can flip the mounts upside down for another 10mm. I also added a set of Fastway Adventure pegs to make it 20mm down and 10mm back. Also increased my travel from 220mm to 265 which raises the bike about another inch...

I simply removed the canister, stuck small lawnmower fuel filter on each hose so the tank vent doesn't suck dust into the tank and tucked them back in the rear section out of the way. took about 3 minutes.

Ken, any chance that you can share what's involved in extending the suspension?
Do you think that the increased angle on the rear (at full extension) are likely to cause wear/bind issues?

PS - I also find the 1190 ergo's (footpeg to seat) more cramped than my 990 - pegs are set low. Thinking about the Radegarrage pegs.

Thanks
Konrad

I'm running full Öhlins TTx suspension on both ends. No problems with rear binding but a few mods needed to be done to allow the full travel.

I like this solution. On a quick spin over to a friends to show off my new toy the bike ran fine with both lines plugged. However, my friend (an old KTM guru of sorts) told me it would work "for a while". I'll go look for some lawnmower filters tomorrow.

No, the foot peg mount is in the low-rear position. In that position, they seem to be higher and more to the front than the mounts on my 990. Just a recollection now as I no longer have the bike. The Fastway peg may be what I need.

I've been following your 1190R stuff. Are you going to be giving information on the 220 to 265 changes?

My vent line had fuel in it. Doing it the way you said could lead to fuel soaked tools and rear tire.

We'll be selling the conversion, but as with all our Öhlins conversions, it won't be cheap...
