Newby intro ...1190 adventure

Post by Nemesis » Fri Aug 19, 2016 4:33 pm

Hi all,
another newby onboard, hope to chat with many of you and gleen more info about tuning/parts etc on my (new to me) 2014 1190 adventure...
Had hundreds of bikes over the years, usually inline jap fours...until i got a tdm 850 after a BIG accident on my zzr which stopped me riding sports bikes (riding position problems).
Really liked the old tdm but never had enough power, bought a race tuned, bored out tls ...which was fun but uncomfortable...
started thinking about a newer adventure style bikes but found them all underpowered/detuned :cry:
Thougt about putting the tl motor into the tdm ... lmao
Then found KTM 1190 adventures and test rode one....Perfect nutter bike !!! (or mile eater)
Went and bought a great example , cant fault it (yet...lol) ...apart from obvious speedo issues etc ;)
Looking forward to having a laugh with you guys n gals
:twisted:

ps...looking for the left hand fairing panel for one of these (not dropped mine, picked up a right hand one and want to wrap a pair for daily use ...not bothered about scratches etc as long as its in one piece )
1190 Adv 2014 Urban camo- elec pack ...
Touratech risers+crash bars.
Blue Angel eyes spotlights - Heated grips.
R&G bar ends + axle sliders
Heed bash plate+Sat nav mount.
Scottoiler+tall screen .
Rad guard.

Now the tuning starts :twisted:

Welcome to the board mate, sounds like you found your perfect bike then.

Can't help with the side panel, but someone will be along in a bit no doubt.
This is what I do with mine....

Cheers bud..
I certainly hope so ..adding a few bits n pieces(spots,risers,upper crash bars..already had lowers..) as I get used to it.
Reading about some of the airbox,sas etc mods and considering them for later ... :D
(as and when funds allow ).
In the meantime, riding it like I stole it ;)

Hello all. Been a member here since 2011 but over in the SMT side. Since I use the T a lot more than the SM I went out and got an 1190 ADV.

Got a good deal on a very gently used 2014 model. Now I’ll be hanging out here with you lot.

Cheers.
