I like the orange engine guards. Is that aftermarket or did you paint the stock ones?

Stock items blasted and powder coated...RAL2004, nearest 'pure' colour match, KTM orange is obviously a blend. The colour match is not perfect but as the parts are not close to any oem orange parts, good enough.

Just admiring your bike Andy, Full system-nice, i see you fitted the ESE, hiding the plug is awkward, i see you zip tied it to the frame, i made a bracket up for the rear brake fluid container, looks similar to yours, did you do the rotweiler O2 sensor removal plus and dongles?, seems to help with the low end fueling i found.
2016 1290GT-remus link and muffler, 2010 Black 1200 Multistrada full Termi system with mapping, 2005 SMR 640, full Titanium system, Mikuni flatside racing carb, 2 sets of wheels, 18 litre tank, and a nice soft seat.

Hi Dave, I'll look for a tidier solution for locating the ESE (if possible) when I get time.....maybe when the tank is next off it could tuck under the rear of it somewhere.
SAS and Evap cannister physically removed and dongles for the electronics - O2 sensors left in place and active as I've got Hilltop Motorcycles ECU 'tune' which actually benefits from the O2's being in place still. Very happy, all running good, propably as smooth as you can get at low rpm e.g 30 and 40mph at constant throttle in 3rd and 4th respectively....pulls from 3000+ rpm (gentle'ish throttle). Not I4 smooth but then this is a big V Twin.

I have read plenty of good feedback on the Rottweiler fuelling/O2 dongles (other brands are available lol) but obviously a remap of some sort and/or Dyno work is best.

Exhaust hanger is still my own fix, ok but not as neat as I'd like....waiting on mate to complete a CAD drawing for a bespoke hanger :D

Anyone thinking of fitting the SDR Akrapovic EVO full system.....be aware, it's not too easy in some respects ;-)
