The bike came with a few mods.

Evotech radiator guard. Great bit of kit, that's staying.

Evotech tail tidy with clear light. I am undecided if this is staying or going. I'm not that keen on it. It may be changed for the PP hanger.

Rim tapes. I hate them, theyre going.

I've ordered R&G crash bungs, they go on all my bikes.

And after that? I'd like a decent can, maybe a screen. Seat hump. Steering damper maybe the stock one has a horrible motion.

In the more fantasy than will actually happen category is: panniers and carriers. Full system and motopro decals.

My own list would probably look like this:

New mirrors, get those ugly factory things off my bike and get some Rizoma ones. Or even some bar end mirrors just for the looks of em.

New tires, my factory back tire is almost used up. Have done like 8000 Km with them.

Akrapovic Evolution Line full system exhaust with a tune. 😍

Motoproworks bodywork kit. They are all looking extremely beautiful. Can't wait to put one of them on my bike!

That's it for now, but I know things will add up quickly as time passes with the modifications. I mean that's the meaning of life isn't it ':)

I forgot all about this thread. So since then I've fitted a seat cowl, a PP fly screen and an IxRace can. Also I contacted BSD performance about remapping the 790. They can't get into later KTM ECUs so they recommended getting a Rapid Bike Evo piggyback ECU and they will remap that. So a year ago I fitted said Evo (bit of a faff) and Friday just gone I had a trip to BSD.

I took a Black Widow link pipe with me for them to fit. I didn't fit it myself just in case running it decatted with standard mapping was too lean.
Great service with these guys, they really know their stuff and talk you through everything. They told me the can is very restrictive which is fine, I knew that anyway from fitting it.

End result. It's pretty loud with the cat gone, a lot more than I expected. The small throttle opening behaviour is much improved, mini roundabouts are no longer clutch feathering time. It can filter in second with a closed throttle just bobbing along on the tickover!! Out in the countryside is great too. I hold on to gears longer because that lovely flat torque curve just shoves you along. It has a bit of a race engine feel to it now which I am loving. It is, I think the engine KTM envisioned.

Here's BSD's post with my bike:

Oh and my coolant hoses are now leaking :|

Ride safe peeps
