The same tyres I've used on the 950/990 Adventure.

I'll also change the rims to the same rims with I have used he last years.

This is 2,50 inch on the rear and 1,85 on the front.

When you look at JP's bike, it has the DID Dirtstar rims fitted.  Stock rims from the 950SE.  I just had a quick glance at the 1190 hub, and it looked like the spoke lacing is the same as the 990.  So one should be able to put the 1.85" Dirtstar on the front.  The centre bend on the 1190 stock rim is not the same, so I presume one would have to replace the spokes too.
I have the DID on the 990, it works well.  So I would imagine that on the 1190, it would also bring the off-road solution.

The 2.5" rear rim is also the stock one on the SE.  I had one on one of my 990's a few years ago.  The spokes have to be changed here as well, so it is not cheap.  The benefit was too small for me to justify it with subsequent 990's.  At the time the price difference between a 150 and 140 wide tyre was more than R1000.  That justified the rim cost.  But the tyres are now not that different in price.  I think on the 1190, it could also work but with new spokes as well.  There is a 3.5" Excel which I liked at the time.  A little bit wider but still good for a 140 tyre.  Never tried it however....

All of the above will give you top class off-road ability.  But 250 km/h becomes a big no-no.  The only benefit the 1190 brings then is to shred a rear tyre in half the mileage on virgin soil.

Will I buy one?  Maybe.....  But I will do some testing to see how the TP sensors work as "poeperometers".  Not sure if my body can generate 2 bar though....  Even when overshooting a corner at 250....  The tubeless rims don't do it for me....

Stock rims are SAXESS, made by BEHR Industry Motorcycle Components GmbH.
The ones we have always been bending on the 990 and 800 BMW.

Tehe TPS go on when you deflate below 2.5bar  >:D

So if you intend on riding lower pressures than that, the low pressure sensors will be useless anyway.

KTM wants R6000 for outer stock rim without hub or spokes  >:D

The new 1190 has a special patented spoke nipple design, giving it the tubeless centrespoke capability, I don't know of the Exel or any other brand besides standard is going to work, it seems you will have to go tubed if you change brands, not a bad thing either IMO, had you had a tube type when this damage occurred, you could have made a plan and gotten home.

This tubeless idea is all very lekker, but they should have used a better rim....the Behr rims are inherently kak.

Warning message comes on at 1.8bar
