My last most modern motorcycle was a 1998 Honda VTR1000 Superhawk. Love that bike. It has no electronics. Not even fuel injection.
I was wondering how you riders "configure your Favorites Menu"?
Why did you select these options.
What conditions do you use them?
Thanx in advance for the responses.
Future Schock is real.

Same here my last bike was the first year on fuel injection (2007) so not used to fancy gadgets either :)
i dont really understand what the favourites do, i run my bike in track mode all the time, most in street or sport trottle mapping.
but u can use up or down arrow for quick acces to things unless ure in track mode in wich case it sets the tc level.
is the upp and down shortcuts the favourites u mean?

peace!

When the menu is closed the up and down buttons are the Quick Selector 1 and 2 options - you can set these via the Settings menu. As you say I think these default to TC level in track mode.

The Favo(u)rites menu is a different thing. When the menu is closed you get to it by pressing the Set (right) button twice. You can freely configure 5 items in this menu in Settings.

I had a Super chicken too! Loved that bike. I think it's claim to fame were the largest carburetors ever fitted to a factory bike. Hard to believe the 790 makes the same power and is so much lighter.

I haven't played with the favorites enough to figure the best way to set up.

Indeed - you can configure them to a bunch of things via the Settings menu, it's up to you.

There are 5 slots - you choose what goes in each of them.

Right.
I was not asking how do you set the pre-sets or quick set 1&2. I've read the manual.
I was asking what do you have inserted there and why.
Thank you for your responses.

I'm pretty sure you're right about the biggest carbs! Funny that 3 of us here had SHawks.

Not only is the 790D so much lighter, the suspension is 20 years better than the SH, haha.

Amazing that a thread about configuring favourites can get so off track...... I would also be interested in an answer

I had the forks on my Superhawk upgraded with RaceTech fork internals, nice upgrade.

I had the RaceTech with gold valves, springs for my weight, as well, on my first '98 SH. I also had a Fox Twin-Clicker shock in the rear, it worked well for the street.

Have to admit this is one area that is very poorly done on the 790 instruments. The favourites should really be the 4 readouts on the bottom of the main screen instead of the 4 bits of data that ktm decided we should see.
Anyway for the favourites menu I have odometer, trip 1, trip 1 time, fuel range and temperature set - BUT the only readout I want is the odometer, the others are useless and just fill the screen. I would prefer the odometer on the main screen but that isn't possible.
