Hi all. Anyone want to share anything relevant to this bike. I don't think it's been out very long. Had mine a couple of months now and loving it.

Bar Risers

Only thing I haven't quite mastered are the bar risers. I'm 6'1" and have KTM 52mm risers on but about 10mm too low. Not stopping me getting out and about or standing up but think comfort could be improved slightly. Waiting for products or web content to give me some clues. Had the 40mm risers on my last bike, BMW GSA, and that was just about right.

Rally Pegs

Great KTM option when standing for any considerable period of time. Wider than standard and seem to stick out just where my legs dangle so even with a long inside leg measurement the stretch is made slightly longer. Apparently there are height settings on the pegs. dealer told me he had set them on the low one.

Akrapovic

Looks good, sounds good and a bit of a weight saver (offset by the heavy duty sump guard on mine). Bit of an expensive KTM option when new but dealer did me a good price. Glad I did it.

Sat Nav - Garmin Zumo or Montana

I went for the Zumo but only because I didn't think too hard. Stuck with Garmin as had loads of routes in Basecamp. Went with Zumo as seemed a good replacement for the BMW Nav V. Monatana would be better for offroad map packs which i'm pretty sure aren't available on the Zumo. No bluetooth on the Montana but 680t has a quality camera which gives location when you take a pic. Maybe treat myself to a second one at some point although bit extravagant.

Barkbusters

KTM standard are all plastic but reinforced option is available from the Powerparts catalogue. I quite liked the colour match with the Barkbusters.

I haven't ridden any light weight stuff off road but can say it's more confidence inspiring offroad than my old GSA (as much as I loved it and would recommend it to anyone thinking of getting one where on-road consideration is higher). Even the small fairing does a half decent job at speed which is capped by the TKC80s at 100 mph (under the legal conditions obviously).

Cotton Reels / Swing Arm Bobbins

KTM do an option. I got mine from R&G for about £25. I haven't bothered with the centre stand as like the weight saving but paddock stand back at home is useful for chain maintenance.
