Hoping for a little more low-end fun as I don't need top speed that often.

Just checked and I was off on the total amount - amazing how the memory changes to whatever is better suited to happiness! LOL..

Total was just under $1800CDN ($1250USD) for the SD461 Ohlins shock ($810) and Andreani Misano Cartridge kit ($790) then of course labor to re and re - parts like fork seals, fork oil, shop supplies, unicorn dust... Taxes on top of it all of course.

My ambition outweighed my talent.

Not much a fan of absolutes..
For me, I donít see it as a track bike. Merely an improved 790D. Use it how you deem necessary. Your mileage may vary.

Just curious to know whether anyone specified heated grips from the power parts, I did and I sort of wish I didn't! The bottom line is they are not wired in to the ignition and I don't think that's right.Does anyone have the same issue?

I asked the dealership when I took it back in for some warranty bits sorted last year as I was P$%£#D off with forgetting and coming out to a flat battery, they told me that the could easily wire it in to the ignition but as this would involve "cutting off" the KTM plugs this would void my warranty on the bike? I am booked in for a service in a couple of weeks and only have 1 year left on warranty so leaving it a bit late in the day to get it sorted but it still really bugs me!

Whoever installed them plugged them into the wrong plug. There are 2 accessory plug sets behind the headlight- ACC 1 and ACC 2. One is always hot, the other works with the ignition. The grips should be on the switched ones. No cutting necessary.

I would suggest you find a dealer with a competent mechanic and auto-electrician. The KTM plugs are simple basic "faston" connectors. Access to them is in the owners handbook. And as @zimm says - it's all really well documented by KTM.

Oh I wish some mechanic would try that with me - I'd humiliate them for hours. It's simple fun.

My 790 came with heated hand grips, i must check to see if they only come on when the ignition is turned on. Haven't really used them yet, hasn't been cold enough, and cold winter riding days is mainly done on the GT or Multi, which both have very good heated grips.

No ****! Thanks gents me and electrics do not mix so your knowledge is greatly appreciated!

Do you think i could do this myself and can you give me any pointers I’m not a complete simpleton but pictures or pages in the manual would be great!

Can’t believe i was fobbed off by the dealer... she booked in for a service with them end of the month half tempted to cancel!

Installed the powerparts levers today, but i buggered this stupid push nut washer and now have to find a new one. Nobody local carries metric ones so had to go online to get them, and of course one is too small to ship and i had to order in bulk.

Word of advice on the clutch powerparts lever, the instructions suck as can be expected by powerparts, and it does not come with a replacement perch even though it shows it in the photos. It is a TOTAL pain in the ass to install.
