Before and After Pics with KTM PowerParts

My PowerParts arrived from overseas and are now fitted to the bike. Thought I'd post some pics for those also interested in buying PowerParts to see.

I'm still waiting on an aftermarket Tail Tidy, Exhaust Hanger Bracket (to remove pillion footpegs) and a Radiator Guard from R&G Racing which according to the tracking details, will be arriving very soon!

Awesome! One question. Is it possible to eliminate the Cat Converter? I realize some people may not want to do that but I just wondered if there is a Mid Pipe to eliminate it. When mine arrives I plan to put a PC V on board and have it Dyno tuned. I will want that removed.

Again your bike looks great.
Thanks

Appreciate the feedback! In regards to the Cat Converter, sorry to say I can't help you there. Hopefully someone else can chime in. I do however recall my local dealer mentioning that a full exhaust system will be released later, but who knows when.

FYI following changes were made so far:

- KTM PowerParts Akrapovic Slip On
- KTM PowerParts Bar End Mirrors
- KTM PowerParts Ergo Seat - Standard
- KTM Pillion Seat Cover
- KTM PowerParts Graphics Kit. (Left the original stock 790 tank graphic on. Might switch it to the graphics kit one later when I get bored.)

I'm also thinking about the PowerBronze Belly Pan, but not sure. I might wait until the Tail Tidy comes in, which will make a big difference once the stock trailer hanging of the back is gone.

Very nice. How do you like the under the bar rear view mirrors?

Duke, does the R&G tail tidy have the wiring harness exposed under the tail?

Bike looks awesome! I was contemplating that graphics kit as well, but I am waiting for a different one to be available in the US I think.

Good question.

Under bar mirrors look cool, but you have to take your eyes off the road and tilt head down. I also need to flick my elbows up slightly, so I wouldn't recommend unless you like the appearance. However, these mirrors can also be mounted over bar. I'm looking forward to receiving my Jarvish helmet though. Will be able to see what's happening behind me via the 1080p rear camera. https://www.jarvish.com/
