Stock Karoo's. My buddy put TKC 80's on and had a Much easier time in the rocky passes. I had 3 flat tires on the front in 5 days on the stock tire. I would say the stock tires are more like a 50/50 tire rather than 70/30. We did Engineer pass Sunday and it was Amazing how much easier it was for my buddy to go up the rocky climb outside of Telluride with the TKC's than me on the Karoo. We switched bikes and the TKC's were an Incredible advantage Especially in the rocks. I went to a 15 both on the front sprocket and it was night and day better. I've stuck with the TKC's on the 1290 and will continue. They don't last long but they Work.Great video! You said “these tires suck” which tires are you using?
Ive got the dongle on my 1290 but so far no one has come up with an answer for the 790. I bet in time someone will.I am a +1 on the MotoZ Tractionator Adventure on the front and so far really liking the matching MotoZ Tractionator Adventure on the rear. Did a few thing in CO and it was a nice matching pair.
As to the computer settings, my 1090 loses the settings if you just shut it off even with the kill switch. KTM sells something called the bad fueling dongle that will keep your settings even when you turn off the ignition. It is a life saver, is there anything like that for the 790?

I pretty much leave mine in Rally with the throttle mapped to street. I only change the ABS mode from street to off road as I go between and you can do it while riding. (You can do all if it while riding...although probably not a good idea on singletrack ) TCS is always available on the home screen at the bottom and you can increase or decrease it with the toggles.I obviously have a lot to learn about the modes and ABS/MTC settings. This was my 1st ride on the bike and I wish I had your suggestions before I left. Offroad mode isn't as responsive as you said. Might be time to read the instruction booklet. I'd love to go back and take both 500 and 790. I have a nice toy hauler and can travel!
Boy did I miss the boat or what. That sounds really nice compared to the settings I had.I pretty much leave mine in Rally with the throttle mapped to street.

Only thing I haven't figured out yet is how to make the home screen show different data than the default. For example, I'd prefer trip mileage and fuel consumption data over total miles and voltage but I don't know how to change it. (I'm told it's possible though....guess I need to read the manual as well.)
Side note...MCT/TCS as a system stays on in this approach, but by turning the "slip" intervention down to 1, I believe it essentially turns it off. You can wheelie over stuff and spin the rear tire at will.
Lol. @Jarrett helped me out when I first got it as I didn't realize I could be in Rally and still control other settings.Boy did I miss the boat or what. That sounds really nice compared to the settings I had.
I looked at my GPS tracks and its actually in Mancos just east of Durango. Some great trails up there. I wish I could have ridden more but my buddy didn't like the single track.Where are these trails located in Durango. I need to take the KLR'ER next time we go see my folks in Farmington.
