Nooby

Post by Gimme 2 » Mon Dec 21, 2015 12:14 pm

G'day all,
I 've had bikes on and off since i was about 13 , after my first trip to Phillip Island on a 82 Katana 1100 in 2002 i hav'nt been without them.
I bought my first KTM in 2005 a KTM 640 adv i hav'nt been with out them either .Now i have a 14 1190r, which brought me here talking to you good people.
It's got some mods, Rotti airbox, carbon bash plate ,carbon heatsheilds, bar risers, other tit bits and a set of Rc8 wheels which have been adapted for it with some simple spacers. They're the best money i've spent on it yet.
It'm looking to add some other gear to it which will improve power , economy , and weight saving etc

Nice, looks good with the 17", how far is the speedo out to the GPS.

All you need to copy & paste is the IMG code from Photobucket.

With those 17"-ers, there will be a bike height reduction. Front 4" and back 2" less, does this translate to from 2" and aft 1" less height?
Do the different tires attribute even more, or is that neglectable?

Cheers Jay, i love it!
Bogaard, suppose thats just math's , same with tyre profile numbers . The width also makes a big difference, like going from a 190 to a 180 felt heaps better, she already feels a little pitchy up front.
the front i hav'nt changed , i have a 125 on atm .
took the original setup tooo far , this setup is great...20 mins and i could be off to the desert.Plus it's saves the michy deserts for >Image
