Hello peoples! Purchased my 'used' 2019 790 Duke Oct 1st...freaking love this thing!!! Upgraded from a 2018 Ducati Scrambler.

I bought the bike with 400 miles and I'm up to 1200 today - also today, I had to drop it off for service due to an oil leak from the head gasket and some strange behavior with the auto blipper - I'll save the details for another thread though, for now, say hello to my scalpel!

Mods to-date;
KTM Fly Windscreen
KTM Silencer bracket
Rizoma Reverse Retro Mirrors (with bar-ends)
Rizoma Corsa LEDs (front & back)
MNNTHBX tail tidy


Mods in-box;
Passenger seat cover
M8X35 screws for grab handle delete (you don't get these in the US)
EBC Double-H Sintered Front Brake Pads - desiring a better bite

Welcome bro. Where in Fl are you? I lived in Jax beach for a few years.
Right on! I'm in Sanford for now...I work remotely but cover a few accounts in Jax so I'm up there a couple days a week. Flirting with the idea to move there (would be closer to Jennings GP!) next year. Thanks for the warm welcomes all!

strange behavior with the auto blipper
Worry not - They are (as has been pointed out) capricious things. tbh it's just they need to be calibrated to the rider.

I think in my case it's because I'm a dinosaur. The signals from my brain take longer to reach my foot than to my hands. So I use the clutch lever. :grin:
