Even the girlfriend was giggling while holding on for dear life.  :ricky:


The wife likes to sit upright against the topbox but complains that it becomes uncomfortable after a while.


So, do I dare ask.......?

 :biggrin:


So it's not just me .

SO the girlfriend was giggling and the wife was uncomfortable - boet, you're doing something wrong!  :pot:

I took the TKC80's off and fitted Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A41 tyres.

So I finally received the KTM powerpart seats, and it definitely makes a difference.

I also discovered the electronic speed limiter after the 1st service. It cuts in at 205 km/h. Can this be lifted/changed?

Same haha.   Apparently you can just ask the dealer to remove it.  I think maybe they stick the SuperAdventure S map on and that removes the limiter.

Is that the only difference between the R and the S maps? The speed limiter?

That I don't know hey.   If you get any info from the dealer let me know.  I havent bothered having mine changed because I'm on knobblies anyway right now, was gonna ask them around service time in July.

Dropped the bike off this morning at RAD so they can upgrade the software and remove the speed limiter.

Got a little 790 Duke to play with, hell this thing is fun!!

Congrats on the bike. As far as I know the mapping with the speed limiter is due to the SAR being supplied with the TKC80 tyres as they have a lower speed rating. (I think the actual map even has an 80 in the name, but aren't 100% sure). Easy to change.

Bought some 2 finger levers from this lot, http://www.rideitmoto.com/products.php?id=9. Fit and finish is really good. Took less than a week to get to JHB.

Will post some pics later

I've found a very budget solution to the shorty clutch lever, will fit it tonight and see how it goes and take pics.
