I have the SW Motech skid plate and also put on a radiator guard to help prevent any stones from putting a hole in the rad. I don't have a hugger but it could help keep some dirt off the rear shock.

I'm not really sure I would call what I do welding, I call it sticking metal together  :008: I wouldn't attempt anything structural yet, need to improve a lot, but its nice to be able to make up small simple projects like this though. Saves a bit of money and its nice to build things.

Personally, I prefer the look of the Evo tech....but I bought a used Beowulf (like the one above) 'cos it was going cheap.

 :001: Just reading things into what you said above.  :001:

ThirtyOne, no sorry. Very unusual for me not to take pictures during the process but just have the mounted picture and this one after it was painted. Not much to it really, just some expanded metal mesh, metal strips for the edge and then three tabs welded on. Its been on since 2015 with no issues and has saved the rad a few times (I could hear a few rocks hitting it).

I'm cheap as well so just made my own. Also, I knew what it would be made of and could make it fit like I wanted.

Maintenance and Servicing / Re: Drive chain cover, can I leave it off?
« on: December 10, 2018, 08:57:08 PM »
I'm not sure why you need to remove the chain cover for cleaning, I just clean it from the bottom run of the chain. I've never needed to remove the cover to clean, align or even replace, the chain. With that said, you can certainly take it off shouldn't be a problem. Keep in mind though, you may get a bit of chain lube flinging around though depending on what type you use, careful it doesn't get on your tire.

Footplate is of the Givi variety. It came with the bike when I picked it up.

I think he was jokingly referring to the manhole cover  :008:

Ouch is right, too rich for me I think  :155: Unless they decide to take it easy on us Canadians, or I wait a year to get a leftover one.

Before the 790 I never really considered a KTM and so don't really know how their model line-up pans out. Just by glancing at the 1090 I could see the 790 taking sales from it by shorter people or those that want something more dirt worthy. Nice to have options though.

Have they released a price for it yet?

Not that I'm aware of and that will probably be the point that sinks it for me.  :003: Won't be cheap for sure, too high and I'll keep my X for sure.
